    Fire in the forest – and a cry for help from a trapped and desperate alien mother! Unfortunately, this is one cry no human can hear. Stephanie Harrington, precocious 14-year-old Provisional Forest Ranger on the planet Sphinx, knows something is wrong from the uneasy emotion that is flooding into her from her treecat friend, Climbs Quickly. But though Stephanie’s alien comrade shares a tight bond with his two-legs, he cannot communicate directly to her. Still, their strong and direct bond of feeling may be enough....

    Story

    This is a great sequel to the first book in the story. It shows how the main characters grow and mature in a realistic and engaging way. The two perspectives of the humans and the tree cats continue to enhance the tension and excitement in the story. I can't wait to read/listen to the last book!!!

    A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most unusual way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: A type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinaire.

    The story was great, a blend of action, entertainment, humor, and even romance. One of my favorite John Scalzi books.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    The performance was great, the characters really came alive. The ancient mythologies crashing into the modern world is handled very well and very entertaining. I am fallowing the full series. For my tastes, the story is a bit hevy on the fighting and conflict, I would have enjoyed seeing more of the main characters at rest, learning, growing, succeeding, as well as learning more detail about druid knowledge.
