    France's iconic queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake", was alternately revered and reviled during her lifetime. For centuries since, she has been the object of debate, speculation, and the fascination so often accorded illustrious figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted child was thrust onto the royal stage and commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in European history.

    Karen says: "Very Detailed"
    "Very detailed and informative"
    Overall

    I, like a few other listeners, have found the narrator of this story so annoying that it has been hard to get through this otherwise good book. The details and historical accounts about Marie Antoinette are very interesting, and of course, cleared up a lot of confusion that I had when watching the historically inaccurate movie.

    England, 1176. Beautiful, tranquil Glastonbury Abbey - one of England's holiest sites, and believed by some to be King Arthur's sacred Isle of Avalon - has been burned almost to the ground. The arsonist remains at large, but the fire has uncovered something even more shocking: two hidden skeletons, a man and a woman. The skeletons' height and age send rumors flying - are the remains those of Arthur and Guinevere?

    I really enjoy the books in this series. Kate Reading is a wonderfully talented narrator who brings the stories to life with her voices. I highly recommend these books if you are a fan of historical fiction.

    Adelia is back in action! Ariana Franklin combines the best of modern forensic thrillers with the detail and drama of medieval fiction in this enthralling historical novel, the second in the Mistress of the Art of Death series.

    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    Mary says: "Terrifying"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    Given the author and the plot, this book sounded like a winner. Character development took too long and much of it was inconsequential. The dialog was often awkward. There was gratuitous swearing by one character in what seemed like an overly obvious attempt at defining a personality, but instead was just annoying. The basic premise is creative and certainly had more potential.
