    It's been six months since Kate, Michael, and Emma confronted the Dire Magnus, but the trail to their long-missing parents remains cold. Then Michael and Emma find a man who saw them ten years ago - three days after they disappeared. He knows about a map of a distant land, a place shrouded in mystery that may lead them to their parents. Meanwhile, Kate's connection to the Book of Time is growing stronger and stronger, until a dangerous trick gets her stuck in the past, searching for a friend to help her. Only a perilous quest and a daring risk will help the children to harness the power of the Books of Beginning.

    Story

    John Stephens has continued to keep the quality of his wonderful new series high and interesting. The value and enjoyment of these books are even greater because of Jim Dale's award winning skills as a narrator. If you liked the first book you will also like this one. It's definitely a series for younger people but that never stopped me from enjoying a book. Have fun!

    I don't know if Charlaine Harris plans to write any more of these books. If she doesn't, I do feel satisfied with how she wraps this one up, solving the mystery from the beginning of the series. It's emotional and powerful and, well, satisfying.

    Twenty-something Harper Connelly has a gift. After being struck by lighting as a child, she discovered an eerie ability to locate the deceased. In Memphis, skeptical Professor Nunley wants her to demonstrate that skill at an ancient cemetery. There, Harper stands atop a grave and says there are two bodies entombed: one centuries old, but the other, a young girl named Tabitha.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    I have heard many times what a great book this was and I am so very glad I purchased it and listened to it. WOW. The characters and story are quite compelling. I am still thinking about the story weeks later and that is VERY unusual for me. What a tragedy that there are only 3 of these masterful books. I look forward to reading the other two.

    Grave Sight draws listeners into the intriguing world of Harper Connelly, a woman with a unique gift: she can "see" the deceased and how they died. A teenage girl from a small Ozarks town is missing and feared dead. Hired by local police, Harper locates the girl's body in a nearby forest. But there's more than one corpse in those woods, and the second one raises questions no one wants to ask.

    Story

    I am really enjoying these characters. I have to say though, that Harper is a VERY similar character to Sookie... kind of a variation on a theme. That said, I like Harper as a character better than Sookie. Just personal preference. This mystery was fun and different and I have started to buy all the books.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    Lenny Henry sounds a lot like Neil Gaiman and so it's almost as if the author is reading his book to you in this recording. I LOVE the book and the characters and listening to it just put me right in the middle of the story. Really excellent and enjoyable storytelling at it's best.

    There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while. Unfortunately, she wasn't alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don't, when they're vampires.

    Story

    Robin has created a wonderful and annoying main character in Sunshine. She's not your typical hero (she whines a lot and is extremely reluctant to step out of her simple life). She is a lot like us normal folks who don't want to stretch too much and grow into who we CAN be. Even if you don't like stories that include vampires, this one will surprise you. Very unique and engaging story. Bravo for another triumph for Robin McKinley who is one of the very best writers in the business. Now if she would just give us the sequel for the pegasus book!
