    Ten years after the publication of Wicked, beloved novelist Gregory Maguire returns at last to the land of Oz. There he introduces us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Bruised, comatose, and left for dead in a gully, Liir is shattered in spirit as well as in form. But he is tended at the Cloister of Saint Glinda by the silent novice called Candle, who wills him back to life with her musical gifts.

    As a bookseller I listen to books so I can pass information on to my customers. After listening to this one I will recommend the book to the customer, but have told them not to waste their money on buying the audio version. It was all I could do to eekk through this one. The story was good, but I hope the author never again tries to narrate another one of his books.

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.

    Story

    As with all of Jim Butcher's books, This book has a great story line. Talking with Mr. Butcher at a convention, he said that if you want good character development find out what is the most precious thing to that character and take it away then create road block to set in their way during their recovery of that item. (paraphrased) In this the first of the Dresden books you can see this brilliantly executed.

    The performance did not have a lot of inflection, but it almos seemed like it was being done by the actor who played Harry Dresden in the TV series " The Dresden Files ".

    Peace and order have been restored to the kingdoms of Tsaia and Lyonya, thanks to the crowning of two kings: Mikeli of Tsaia and, in Lyonya, Kieri Phelan, a mercenary captain whose royal blood and half-elven heritage are resented by elves and humans alike. On the surface, all is hope and promise. But underneath, trouble is brewing. Mikeli cannot sit safely on his throne as long as remnants of the evil Verrakaien magelords are at large.

    Story

    This book is a great continuation of the Paksenarrion world. Looking forward to book three. I find it interesting though that it is referred to as Legend of Paksenarrion as she hardly ever is present in this story. I understand that sometimes it is necessary to change narrators, but this series went from someone who was fun and exciting to someone who could put me to sleep. Still it was a good choice.
