    Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising.

    Craig says: "Rick is masterful with history and incrporation."
    "A stellar conclusion to the trilogy"

    An exciting, laugh out loud conclusion to the trilogy. We can only hope for a cross over between Percy Jackson and the Kane kids.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was good to tick off a classic I had never before read, but this was a seriously depressing read. This book on a grey drizzly February day and I would probably be suicidal.

  • Washington's Crossing

    This New York Times best seller is a thrilling account of one of the most pivotal moments in United States history. Six months after the Declaration of Independence, America was nearly defeated. Then on Christmas night, George Washington led his men across the Delaware River to destroy the Hessians at Trenton. A week later Americans held off a counterattack, and in a brilliant tactical move, Washington crept behind the British army to win another victory. The momentum had reversed.

    William says: "Particularly Good Military History"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Enormously detailed, yet completely gripping, this work brings to life an incredibly important, yet often overlooked, chapter in our nation's history

  • Persuasion

    The last novel completed by Jane Austen before she died at 41, Persuasion is often thought to be the story of the author's own lost love. Sir Walter Elliot of Kellynch Hall has three daughters: Elizabeth, who shares his haughty vanity and, at 28 has found no one good enough to marry; Mary, who has, with some condescension, married the son of the local squire; and admirable Anne, who "was nobody with either father or sister".

    Tad Davis says: "Wonderful characters"
    "excellent reading of a treasured favorite"

    Any additional comments?

    Nadia May's reading style takes a little getting used to as she has a significant pause in between sentences. However, she speeds up as the book goes along and I liked her style a lot after I got used to it. I have read Persuasion in print about a hundred times and this version is a lovely alternative for a drive.

    When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and...a ride from his mom.

    What other book might you compare The Titan's Curse to and why?

    For those kids looking for something now that Harry Potter is over, this is a good choice. Funny and exciting, with strong female characters as well as Percy, it's perfect for the 9-12 year old crowd.
