    Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must, burying their doubts with their dead - until the prophesy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more. There must be a way for the Black Company to find her....

    The voice acting really made this book alot more enjoyable. This is a story that's better to listen to than to read I think. Not very long but still worth the credit.

    The Duke of Canarn is dead, executed by the King's decree. The city lies in chaos, its people starving, sickening, and tyrannized by the ongoing presence of the King's mercenary army. But still hope remains: the Duke's children, the Lord Bromvy and Lady Bronwyn, have escaped their father's fate. Separated by enemy territory, hunted by the warrior clerics of the One God, Bromvy undertakes to win back the city with the help of the secretive outcasts of the Darkwald forest, the Dokkalfar.

    Story

    I was skeptical of getting this one because it's so new and didn't have many reviews. Turns out the risk payed off. This was a really great book. It takes quite a long time to get introduced to it and it's really only worth it if you listen to the second book as well. Overall though I really enjoyed the narration and how the author introduces us to his world.

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Story

    The author constantly references events that happened to the characters past without giving any background. Most of them feel about as deep as a teaspoon and there is really very little original with this story.

    The New York Times bestselling author of The Shattering and Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects delivers a sensational tie-in to the newest World of Warcraft game expansion. What does it take to turn the peacekeeper into a warmonger? Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War gives World of Warcraft fans the opportunity to see what happens when a beloved peacekeeper is pressed to the limit by an inconceivable horror. Will it change her forever? Break her? Or redefine her role on Azeroth?

    Story

    This was a mediocre story. If you're a big fan of World of Warcraft you'll still get something out of it but if not don't waste the credit as this story will have nothing of interest to you. Christie Golden's other works were great on their own but her work of the last few years are only enjoyable to those who religiously follow the game. This is a script to advance the WoW story line and not a whole lot more, the voice acting didn't help as the female voice actor was unable to portray most of the characters convincingly or even express emotions in a believable way.

America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    Story

    I'm not a fan of Robert McCammon's other works but this was actually one of the best audio books I've heard in a long time. The author does a great job of setting each scene and all of the characters are well developed and interesting. There is a lot of symbolism in this story and it would be equally as entertaining for a 15 year old as it would be for a 45 year old. Totally worth the credit, I would love to see more audio books by this voice actor.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Story

    This taught me a lot while being entertaining at the same time. The subject is well written and well researched. The reader presents the material well and makes it easy to follow. There is a lot of good story here and while being a history buff would help it is not required to enjoy this work.

    Story

    I've been a Warcraft fan most of my life however I just couldn't get through this. I'll admit part of it is the voice actor who has done several of the books I own however I think it was mostly just a bad story. I know the character from the games and I really kept thinking I would feel more invested in the story however I just found most of this boring.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Story

    This book had some of the worst narration I've ever heard. The speaker skips between characters and locations without so much as a change in tone let alone a pause. The story itself just seems like watered down fan fiction based on a much better book. Save your credit and get something good, I really tried and I couldn't get all the way through this one.
