    Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida.

    I listened to this with my wife and son on a recent trip. None of us had read the book so it was new for us. I enjoyed this story because it has a positive message about the environment. I also thought that it is easy to relate cast of characters.

    After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

    Overall

    The author has an amazing imagination and this story comes to life before your eyes. I enjoyed this so much I bought the others. Do not see how you can go wrong with this one. Plenty of action and adventure. Light on violence and gore. Some romance but mostly pure fantasy for all ages.

    J.R. King's 12-year-old antihero turned hero, Arianna Kelt, is a reformed thief and wizard seer. Now you wouldn't think being a wizard seer would be such a big deal, but it is a big deal to the Wizards of Skyhall. For you see, those particular wizards are sworn to protect the citizens of Earth from all the things they shouldn't know about, namely wizards, warlocks, and all the creatures of the magical realms that no humans should know exist.

    Jamie says: "Way better than expected"
    "Awesome book you won't be disappointed"
    Overall

    My family listened to the "Arianna Kelt" books on a recent trip. My son had read the book before and was very excited about listening to the story with us. My wife and I loved Arianna Kelt! Every chapter is magical and has a new idea to it, and every chapter has a good bit of action. I loved King's wonderful descriptive skills throughout the book.

    Overall

    Not sure what the previous reviewer was listening to, but it couldn't possibly be the same book. This was an excellent listen. I found it to be both helpful and interesting. There is a discussion about using multimedia in your presentations but it is a very small part of the whole. Over all, I found this to be fantastic and would recommend it.

    Overall

    Such a delight to find these wonderful books on Audible! We couldn't wait to listen and the stories have been a treat. The youngest enjoys listening to the adventures of Buster and Lass. We've also read the printed books and found them to be equally as good. Enormous fun, beautifully narrated, what more could you want!

    We've been reading the bugville critters stories since last year and were delighted to find the books on Audible. While obviously a favorite of our youngest, my older children have listened as well and enjoyed the stories. Buster and Lass are fun characters and Stanek is one of those rare authors who has an amazing imagination and is able to share it with others with extraordinayr skill.

    Indulge, slip away to Ruin Mist! In the Service of Dragons is the continuation of Robert Stanek's multilayered epic fantasy adventure that began with The Kingdom and the Elves of the Reaches, Books 1-4. In that acclaimed series, Stanek introduced us to the story of Ruin Mist, an extraordinary world of magic, adventure, and intrigue. In this eagerly awaited follow-up, he once again proves himself a wonderful storyteller with a gift for fast pacing and believable storylines.

    Jake says: "Awesome!! Read It!!"
    "Fantastic listening experience!"
    Overall

    My son is a huge fan of this author and this was a fantastic listening experience for all! I definitely recommend it but you need to start with Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches #1.

    My wife and I have been reading the Bugville Critters books to our children since last year. As soon as we learned the books were available on Audible we bought several. We were so pleased to find the books work as well in audio as they do in print. Both of my children adored this book. We had a good laugh at Buster's antics and the surprise ending. Robert Stanek has done it again!

    My wife and I have been reading the Bugville Critters books with our children since last year. They love Buster's antics and fun adventures. As a parent, I appreciate that the stories are highly readable and as enjoyable for all on the 100th read as they were on the first.

    When a friend told my wife the books were available on Audible we didn't hesitate to see if the books were as good in audio as they were in print. We were all delighted to find out they were. The kids are dancing around listening to the story right now!
