    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    I absolutely LOVED it. Exciting, imaginative, and descriptive to the point of feeling the wind on your skin and smells of the ancient cities!

    Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed. Now the Valley of Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown. On the eve of the festival of Osiris, the loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather in Thebes to pay tribute to their leader.

    Exploding with all the passion and rage of a bygone time, River God is a masterpiece of historical writing.

    What made the experience of listening to River God the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed every part of it, will probably read it again. Loved the characters, the performance, and the story. What else is there to like? I hated it when it was over.

The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    It is England, in the 14th century, a time of plague, political unrest, and the earliest stirrings of the Reformation. The printing press had yet to be invented, and books were rare and costly, painstakingly lettered by hand and illuminated with exquisite paintings. Finn is a master illuminator who works not only for the Church but also, in secret, for John Wycliffe of Oxford, who professes the radical idea that the Bible should be translated into English for everyone to read.

    Peter A Jordan says: "extremely enjoyable"
    "Excellent Listen"
    Overall

    This definitely kept my attention, it is an engaging story, with great attention to the detail of the time.
