    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    I love Jim Butcher. I love the Dresden Files. I love this story. I like the narrator fairly well. But I HATE HATE HATE the horns that sound at crazy times during the story. Get real, Audible, there has to be an easy way to get rid of those stupid horns.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    I LOVE the Dresden series and this is a good addition to the story line. I also think John Glover is a good narrator but HE IS NOT Harry Dresden. I started to end the series with the last Marsters narration but decided to get this one anylway. A mistake I will not make again. I can forgive Harry for his errors in judgement and rash actions when Marsters tells them but found myself getting outdone with his 'antics' when John Glover tells them. I got to the point I was just ready for the book to end so I did not have to listen any more. As much as I have enjoyed the series, if James Marsters is not brought back as the narrator, I will purchase no more of them. If you have followed the series with Marsters, I do NOT recommend getting this, read in in print or just realize the series is over.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    I had trouble with the narrator when I first started to listen but learned to appreciate what he was doing, being Harry Dresden. I can never be sure if I really like Harry but I always pull for him. I am looking forward to continuing the series.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    I loved the Monster Hunter series and bought this for the author. It is a bit different than the Monster Hunter series but a fun listen anyway. I had a bit of a problem getting into the book at first but enjoyed it once it got rolling.

    Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    Loved, loved, loved this book. Great story that takes you to the land of "what if". It started a bit slow but once the reader is allowed to fully enter the story, there is no leaving. It is NOT a horror story but one of imagination and possibilities and takes the reader on a wonderful journey. I have recommended this book to everyone I know. Craig Wasson does a wonderful job with the narration.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Story

    I just finished Herman Wouk's books on WWII (Winds of War and War and Rememberance) narrated by Kevin Pariseau and wanted to have a similar wonderful experience learning about WWI. The story was very good, lots of information, well presented (interesting) research, enjoyable writing style. Unfortunately narration was terrible. I wanted to hear the story but had to force myself to listen to the narrator. He read the story like it was a phone book. I understood every word but he brought nothing what was happening on the page. I would love to continue with this trilogy as it is released but if John Lee continues to narrate this will be the only one I listen to.

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Story

    I have never consider myself as a history buff but this has given me a hunger to learn more of what actually happened in the past. This novel gave me so much information that I never had regarding WWII and allowed me to increase my knowledge while enjoying a wonderful story. I loved moving from one perspective of the world to another and being able to grasp the different way events were experienced by different parts of the world. Now I will be reading well researched historical novels and hoping I can enjoy them as much as I did this one.

    Narration was wonderful, story was wonderful, hisory was presented in a way that will stay with me. A wonderful experience in every respect.
