    From the magical mysteries of India to the gaslit streets of Victorian London, Mercedes Lackey's unique departure from her Valdemar series follows a young woman doctor as she searches for the secret behind the sorcery in her blood.

    Story

    I enjoyed this story very much, my first from Mercedes Lackey. It was such an interesting mixture of England, India, Turn of the Century, Women's Suffragettes, and magic, with a splash of romance thrown in, for good measure. Michelle Ford did a good job of narration, though she mis-pronounced several words. Difference between English and American pronounciations? Not sure.

    Hostile in ways that a surface-dweller could never know, the tunnel-mazes of the Underdark challenge all who tread there. Among these souls are Drizzt Do'Urden and his magical cat, Guenhwyvar. Exiled from his drow homeland, Drizzt must fight for a new home in the boundless labyrinth. Meanwhile, he must watch for signs of pursuit - for the dark elves are not a forgiving race.

    Story

    This is book 2 of the story of Drizzt, and it did not disappoint me. R A Salvatore writes so much detail into his stories that I can believe I am actually there, watching. Victor Bevine brings the characters to life, and the action is non-stop. Magic flies almost as much as arrows!

    This stunning new release of the classic R.A. Salvatore novel recounts the origins of Salvatore's signature dark elf character, Drizzt Do'Urden. This title kicks off The Legend of Drizzt series, which will showcase the classic dark elf novels in these new audiobook editions.

    Story

    I have just fallen in love with Drizzt. He is such an excellent character. There are so many books about Drizzt that it took me a while to find the beginning of the series; however, this is it. You have reached the beginning story. I especially love Drizzt's commentaries on life. Pretty sensitive, for a Drow! lol

    If you are looking for a good fantasy series, with Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and all kinds of fantasy creatures, all wielding Magic, and with lots of action, you just can't go wrong with this series. It is the Motherlode. R A Salvatore has created so many excellent books about Drizzt and his companions that it is like an banquet. Victor Bevine does an excellent job of narrating, too. He brings the characters to life for me.

    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    Story

    I felt that this was a dark story. It seemed that everything fell apart for Jane towards the end, and the ending left me with my mouth hanging open, saying "NO!! This can't be!" I was so grateful that a couple of weeks after listening to this book, the next book in the series came out, and I quickly downloaded it. Thank goodness, things worked themselves out in the next story! lol

    Upon listening to the story for the second time, things made more sense, and didn't seem quite so dark. I enjoyed the story greatly the second time, and Khristine just does an awesome job of narration. Her portrayal of Beast is my favorite part of the story. Faith did a great job of weaving an intricate plot.

    When the world was young, and its name was Faerie, the power of magic ruled - and the Elfstones warded the race of Elves and their lands, keeping evil at bay. But when an Elven girl fell hopelessly in love with a Darkling boy of the Void, he carried away more than her heart. Thousands of years later, tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. Elves have distanced their society from the other races. The Druid order is threatened.

    Story

    I was slightly disappointed with this book. I love Terry Brooks' work; however, this one seemed to me to be really slow and lacking some of the storyline detail and finesse I have come to expect from Terry's work. It just seems a little too simplistic and predictable. I will reserve judgment of the overall story until I listen to part two. Also, although Rosalyn did a good job, it was difficult at times to tell the characters apart.

    Yet another awesome book by Faith Hunter. I just love Jane Yellow Rock! This one was a very interesting study of the Were beings, especially Were Cats and Were Wolves - and, of course, the Vamps. Action packed (as always) with a great story line, and a very interesting twist at the end. I just love Khristine Hvam's interpretation of this story. Her saucy 'tude just makes this series, for me.

    Fans of the Shannara epic will revel as the forces of good battle an evil book, the Ildatch, which sends the Mord Wraiths to destroy mankind. To overcome this dark force, the Druid Allanon needs Brin Ohmsford, for she holds the power of the wishsong, a magic invoked by singing that can make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold.

    Story

    I just finished listening to the third book of the Shannara series, and I was so sorry to come to the end. Terry Brooks did a fantastic job in creating this world and the characters in it. With the help of Scott Brick's eloquent talents, the stories unfolded in my mind like a movie. The action was great and the story moved along well, though told in great detail.

    I am almost finished with the story, and I am sitting on pins and needles until I can get to it again. Not only has Faith Hunter written another hit story about Jane Yellow Rock's vamp killing quest, but Khristine Hvam does another great job of delivering a spell-binding story. I love this series! It's creepy, but I am actually coming to like vamps . . . sort of . . .

    Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    Story

    I loved this story, right from the very first line. I was tickled with Jane's 'tude, right from her tooling into town on a hog, shotgun strapped to her back, to her nicknaming the blood servant "Troll" - the humor just kept rolling. Khristine did a good job of catching Jane's personality. There was good info on the lore of Vampires and Skinwalkers, too. And I loved her not-so-tame "kitty cat"! Speaks to my "inner cat".

    Since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton has received widespread acclaim as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of "new biology". The science is called epigenetics – a revolutionary field that shows us how the energy of consciousness is as important in shaping life on earth as DNA and chemistry.

    WOW! I am still blown away by the analogy Bruce makes between the biology of our cells and the psychology of our lives. He is so right on!!! It took a long time to get through this book, because I had to keep turning it off and thinking about what he was saying.

    I really appreciated getting to hear Bruce read his own words, as it enabled me to get the full meaning of his information. I look forward to hearing more of what Bruce has to say about this subject.
