    The Conclave is a confederation of 400 alien races - many of whom would like to see the Colonial Union - and the humans inside of it - blasted to extinction. To avoid a conflict that neither side can afford, Conclave leader General Tarsem Gau appoints Hafte Sorvalh to resolve an emerging diplomatic crisis with the humans, before the only acceptable solution is war. "The Back Channel" is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

    In this episode you listen to the Conclave and what decision they are going to take... I'm not liking the length of each episode , i believe it would have been better if they are a bit longer.
    But here you get to know some technologies and the human division getting bigger and bigger.

    Lets see what the next episodes will bring.

    Story

    This book was good, I have enjoyed it, you get to know the folks at the desert spear and tend to know their back story and their future plans... it does have a different start than the first book.. so you will be a bit confused thinking whats going on here...
    More and more things got cleared up and you get to know the enemy more and more... You get to be with the warded man and he get to face his past.

    Now lets talk about what i didn't like in this book and in series in general:
    - This whole series is based in a time where please speak that fancy old english style like in the wheel of times and so on, but then all the sudden you find modern slangs here and there.. it gets really confusing... too many modern and current time words for it to be based in such a time.

    - Those folks from the desert spear... those are the basic description of Arabic folks who live in the desert .. nothing unique about them, no imagination, the women wear Hijab like the desert folks and a man can have more than one wife and so on... other books tend to come up with weird cultures and unique ones, nothing based on real current culture.. I understand that some of you guys would say ohh but its built on a life after the modern current age, thats why the modern terms are there and thats why the cultures are so similar.. I don't buy that, if that was the case then the modern slang would have stayed rather than disappearing, and plenty of constructions would be there rather than disappearing completely.

    Again, too many similar things to make this book unique and enjoyable .. love the imagination that authors tend to have, but sadly, it wasn't so vast in this series .

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story

    I had this book for months, but kept on postponing it.. Its really good.. Not as jaw dropping as other big epic books like the wheel of time... but it is a good series...

    I think that this series could have been one of those long series with several books to build the characters and the story plot... i'm not saying it was fast in this book, but it could have been longer with more characters and plots..... There were so many chapters were the author jumped for few years...

    The Warded Man is based in a world were demons exist and attack humans every single night. People defend themselves by using wards and hide.... A boy grows up hating how everyone hides and no one attack those demons...

    In general, I have enjoyed reading this book, and the character build up was good... its ending was very well and made me jump and purchase the 2nd book and read it already.

    enjoy!

    Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood - the blood of Olympus - in order to wake.

    other than that, it wasn't a bad book.... i just do hate such buildups and then... well you will see...

    The Galactics arrived with their Battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast Empire that spanned the Milky Way. Our only worthwhile trade goods are our infamous mercenary legions, elite troops we sell to the highest alien bidder. In the third book in the series, James McGill is deployed on another alien world. His third interstellar tour is different in every way. Rather than meeting up with a primitive society, this time he’s headed to an advanced world.

    If you ask me "Did you like this addition", then I say Yes.
    If you ask "Did you love it", then its no.
    If you ask "Why?", I'll say because it could have been shorter, and the ending was really really slow.... didn't really like that.

    But i do think it was book 2.5 more than 3 as it prepares you for the next chapter or part of this series. Let see how things become.

    But the ending of this book was refreshing and happy, you guys will like it....

    This zombie series is really one of my favourites, and Mark Tufo is doing a great job in this series and in others, Mike is a very interesting character.

    In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    I have honestly loved this book, it is one of my favorites in this series. So many events so many twists so many changes.
    Morgen was put into a tough spot, between a rock and a hard place and it felt like the world was against her. Demons, Elves, witches, werwolves, pixies and so on they all were involved and gosh how so many things happened here...

    When i thought the book ended, it wasn't even close... I think Kim Harrison did a great job with this book and its ending was fantastic.

    Loved it and loved this whole series .. Wonder if thats it or if there will be more of our lovely characters

    Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse - her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate, no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy.

    This is different to what am used to by Jeaniene Frost, its not the usual vampire stories with the lovely characters we all love... Its a completely different theme and story, no vamps, but its all about angels and demons, and all i can say that it was interesting...

    The main character "Ivy" has some powers were made her life hard, she kept on seeing other things around her, not only what regular humans could but supernatural things... that part was interesting a bit... but i don't know how to say this, the story was going a bit too fast. I do think that it could have been a bit longer so there could be more details, it did go really fast and for some reason it didn't feel right.

    but the plot itself is very interesting, it is different than the usual books you read and there is plenty of conflicts between the characters, which i have liked.

    I'm interested in how it will continue, so for sure will get the next one.

    I would say that this book really displayed the evil-ish or lets say the dark side of Harry.... I love how always the starts of these books are really WOW moments, but this one was WOW * 3413413112344 .. My jaw was hanging when i heard what a certain person told Harry, and i think his reaction was even worse than mine.

    What I love about this series that its not only the one thing happening, but its the too many things that are happening, so you never get bored at all.... And in this one believe me when I say you will never get bored for even a single second.

    Narration is amazing as usual...... And the end of this book was one of the best and one of the most WOW moments I have experienced.
