    Detective Alex Cross is being stalked by a psychotic genius, forced to play the deadliest game of his career. Cross' family - his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children - have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?

    Darth Sidious sends his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt a traitor down. But he is too late. Sidious' secret plan has already been passed to information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him at the top of Darth Maul's hit list. Now the future of the Republic depends on Lorn and Darsha, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her knighthood. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

    Katheryn says: "Maul story good, sound effects horrible."

    Overall

    If you like Star Wars and want to learn the beginnings and missions of one of the most mysterious Sith characters then you'll enjoy this story. I hope there's another Darth Maul story written as well as this one was.

    The overthrow of the Republic is complete. The Separatist forces have been smashed, the Jedi Council nearly decimated, and the rest of the Order all but destroyed. Now absolute power rests in the iron fist of Darth Sidious - the cunning Sith Lord better known as the former Senator, now Emperor, Palpatine. But more remains to be done.

    "The Force Unleashed"
    Overall

    I heard about the game and thought I might give the audiobook a listen to get more insight to Darth Vader's secret apprentice. The book is very good and the narration is pretty good as well. It's a great compliment to the recently released video game.

  • Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade: A Duty Dance with Death

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 53 mins)

    Story

    Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist classic introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a man who becomes 'unstuck in time' after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all phases of his life, concentrating on his (and Vonnegut's) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden.

    W. Seligman says: "What more can be said?"

    Overall

    Ethan Hawke does an excellent job on the narration of this classic Vonnegot title. It's well worth the download if you enjoy the classics.

    When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger.

    Lisa says: "Not the same read"

    Overall

    I found this Audiobook to be quite exciting and enjoyed the narration. While I can't quite picture a Morgan Freeman in the role of Alex Cross for this book, it was narrated very well and I particularly liked the audio enhancements and sound effects during suspenseful moments during chase scenes.
