    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    Overall

    I am stunned by how positive the reviews are for this audiobook. I enjoyed reading Robin Hobb's assassin series so I figured this would be equally enjoyable.

    I understand that Anne Flosnik is an award winning performer but I felt her voice was too strained and that at times it was difficult to get over words that she dragged out unnaturally. Overall, her voice was unpleasantly matched to the characters in this book.

    I'm not sure whether it was Anne's voice or the lack of anything interesting in the story line that preventing me from finishing this audio book but either way, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Let Me In is the horrific tale of Oskar and Eli. It begins with the grizzly discovery of the body of a teenage boy, emptied of blood. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last - revenge for all the bad things the bullies at school do to him. While Oskar is fascinated by the murder, it is not the most important thing in his life. A new girl has moved in next door. They become friends. Then something more. But there is something wrong with her, something odd.

    Overall engaging story and solid performance from Steven Pacey.

    It was not the best book I've heard or read but for what it was, it was very interesting and fun to listen to.

    The end is coming. Logen Ninefingers might only have one more fight in him but it’s going to be a big one. Battle rages across the North, the King of the Northmen still stands firm and there’s only one man who can stop him. His oldest friend and his oldest enemy. It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

    Steven Pacey spoiled me with a masterful performance. Every other audio book does not come close to how well done this one was. Oh, I think I should probably mention that this was a "hot action" and exciting book that was very enjoyable. My favorite book of the series.

    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.

    Overall

    After reading all of the positive reviews about the book, I decided to give it a try. I must say there were some good points in the book and was decently written but overall the story progressed very slowly and without very good direction.

    In a way it was a book just hyping up the main character without any real action or significance to how great of a protagonist he is.

    In my opinion, Rothfuss is a good writer but it would have been a much better book if it didn't seem to drag so much.
