    Story

    The Dark River opens in New York City with a stunning piece of news. Gabriel's father, who has been missing for nearly 20 years, may still be alive and trapped somewhere in Europe. Gabriel and his Harlequin protector, Maya, immediately mobilize to escape New York and find the long-lost Traveler.

    I love the first book, there was NO action in this one. I have enjoyed Scott Brick work on other books, but his performance fell very short when it came to giving believable accents here. Too bad I really wanted this one to be a home run!

    Story
    (70)

    In the early 13th century, a simple nomad chieftain managed to cobble together a powerful kingdom in the highlands of northern Asia, which was subsequently to challenge the greatest powers of the day. He was triumphant in all directions. This leader was Timujin, whose name meant "Iron Man". He became Genghis Khan, "Universal Ruler", the greatest conqueror ever known - a warrior feared from the British Isles to the tip of the Korean peninsula.

    Curatina says: "Fabulous!"
    "Awsome"
    Overall

    Its like the real life story of Conan, if you like bios and war-type strategy, or if you love a great story, this is for you

  • The Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power

    Story
    (469)

    Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, delineating the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want - any way we can. Controversial but never dull, timeless and up-to-date, it's destined to be Greene's next best seller.

    Robert says: "Great narration, interesting material"
    "not very good"
    Overall

    48 laws of power is great, 33 strategies of war is very good, this book I would have preferred to skip,

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Story
    (3319)

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Valerie says: "Just As Wonderful as I Remembered!"
    "all build up, not much reward"
    Overall

    Very richly written but, the plot was unsatisfying..
