    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Story

    I thought this book was wonderful! I know I shouldnt be making comparisons but I'm going to anyway. I am a big fan of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series and have been waiting for another as good. As far as I can tell from this book, Patrick Rothfuss will soon be a contender, at least in my library. If you like Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson you wont be disappointed with this one.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Story

    I like the Night Angel Trilogy, once you read this book you're going to want to read the other two. I like the way the author does not make his lead character infallable. He is allowed to make mistakes and wrong decisions and still be the hero. The story reminds me a bit of the "Assassin" trilogy by Robin Hobb even though the story is quite different. If you enjoyed those books you will most likely enjoy this one as well.

    Tigana is the magical story of a beleaguered land struggling to be free. It is the tale of a people so cursed by the black sorcery of a cruel, despotic king that even the name of their once-beautiful homeland cannot be spoken or remembered.

    But after years of devastation, a handful of courageous men and women embark upon a dangerous crusade to overthrow their conquerors and bring back to the dark world the brilliance of a long-lost name: Tigana.

    Wonderful story with the best narrator possible chosen to read it! I could listen to this guy read just about anything but the story was also really good so a great buy all around.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    You can tell that it is a YA read, but I enjoyed it a lot. The narrator captured the main character perfectly. Easy to listen to and satisfying.

    All the Pretty Horses, the first volume of the Borders Trilogy, tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons; beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. With two companions, he sets off on an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.

    I did not know if I was going to like a "western" book as I had not read any before this one, but decided to give it a try anyway... and I'm glad I did. The pace and voice of the narrator really did justice to the lyrical quality of the writing. Lovely!

    The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off.

    Great book as always, and the narrators did a good job too.
