    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    "Love Roy Dotrice"
    Overall

    This entire series by George RR Martin is magnificent, but the audible books even rise above the print due to the wonderful voice range of Roy Dotrice. He should get an award for these books, and the characters that he makes come alive. Every character is so unique,..I especially love Jaqen H'ghar. Unfortunately, he has been replaced in A Feast for Crows.

    Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide cop John Corey is convalescing in rural eastern Long Island when an attractive young couple he knows is found shot to death on the family patio. The victims were biologists at Plum Island, a research site rumored to be an incubator for germ warfare. Suddenly, a local double murder takes on shattering global implications - and thrusts Corey and two extraordinary women into a dangerous search for the secret of Plum Island....

    I have been plus minus for Scott Brick over the years because he can be a bit "sing songy". But he is perfect in this book. He absolutely fits the character, and does a great job with all the characters, not just the protagonist. There were no draggy points, the book kept me interested start to finish. Having read all of the books in my favorite detective series, I am so happy to find a new detective series to read through. Was worried my gym workouts would come to a halt without a good audible backup. Highly recommended for anyone who likes modern detective.

    It seems like just another quiet night at Elaine's. Stone Barrington and his former cop partner, Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash.

    Story

    I can always be guaranteed hours of wonderful entertainment with any of the Stone Barrington novels. The novels may be a bit formulaeic, but who cares? The characters are great in themselves, and are made really special by the wonderful narration of Tony Roberts. I can't wait for the gravely New York voice of Dino Bachetti,-- the easy going tough as nails sidekick who never fails to save Stone from some local bad guy. My only concern is that I am running out of Stone Barrington novels.

    Chosen by Publishers Weekly as a Best Book of 2007, The Snow Empress showcases author Laura Joh Rowland's deep understanding of 17th-century Japan and her impeccable gift of storytelling. This thrilling novel finds samurai detective Sano Ichirõ working to gain freedom for his son by investigating the murder of a lord's beloved mistress.

    Joshua says: "Good story, light on authenticity"
    "Japanophile delight"
    Overall

    I was worried about reading a book by a non-Japanese author, but this was unfounded. The book is very Japanese. Another reviewer said "no one talks like that", but actually, upper class courtly Japanese would seem very stilted in English. And the narrator, who is probably a native speaker, pronounces Japanese names beautifully. This book reminded me of the beautiful Japanese countryside, and makes me want to go back--this time to Hokkaido. I rated it 4 stars because nothing compares to Tales of the Otori...
