    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    Overall

    This book is great for anybody who likes reading about sailing ships in the 1800s. The book is full of action as the main character Jacky Fabre tells her story of the time spent on the HMS Dolphin as a ships boy. As with any great nauticle tale this story involves piracy and great batles on the high sea. This is a book that you won't want to put down becuase the plot keeps moving and you will always want to know what happens next.

    Before she went to join Sam and Mogget downstairs, Lirael paused for a moment to look at herself in the tall silver mirror that hung on the wall of her room. The image that faced her bore little resemblance to the Second Assistant Librarian of the Clayr. She saw a warlike and grim young woman, dark hair bound back with a silver cord rather than hanging free to disguise her face. She no longer wore her librarian's waistcoat, and she had a long Nehima at her side rather than a library-issue dagger.

    Ethan M. says: "A great conclusion to a wonderful series"
    "Amazing!!!"
    Overall

    This is an excellent conclusion to the Old Kingdom series as well as a perfect conclusion to the story begun in Lirael. I would suggest reading the two previous books in the series first because this book picks up right where the last one left off. This means that the action begins in the first chapter, keeping your interest until the end. The main characters continue their journey to stop an ancient being from destroying the world. This book is filled with magical fights that would rival those in Harry Potter. You will NOT want to stop listening.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Sci-Fi Thriller"
    Overall

    In a world where Earth has banded together to fight the alien "Buggers". The future of the human race has only one hope, a boy, named Ender Wiggin. This book is a great read, it has a few exciting parts however it mainly explains the trials of the main character Ender Wiggin. This is a book for those who want to add some adventure to the fields of politics and who want an interesting view on war. Since that is what this book is about; taking over the world and defeating a technologically superior enemy.

    Thousands of years ago, fairies and humans fought a great battle for the magical island of Ireland. When it became clear that they could not win, all of the fairies moved below ground, except for the 8th Family, the demons. Rather than surrender, they used a magical time spell to take their colony out of time and into Limbo. There they have lived for decades, preparing to exact their violent revenge on humans.

    Nicole says: "Artemis Unbound"
    "A Fantastic Addition to a Great Series"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful addition to the story of Artemis Fowl and his adventures with the fairy people. All of our favorite fairies and humans return to make this a perfect addition to the series. This book should be read after the previous books as it builds off of them. I extremely enjoyed this book for its wonderful story line and the plot just keeps on moving.
