    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Toni says: "Remarkable!"

    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    The way Scott Brick plays John Corey is awesome. I think he captures his attitude and demeanor perfectly.

    Jane Carver, a hell-raising, redheaded biker chick from Coral Gables, Florida, had found a new life and love on Waar, a savage planet of fearsome creatures and swashbuckling warriors. Until the planet’s high priests sent her back to Earth against her will. But nobody keeps Jane from her man, even if he happens to be a purple-skinned alien nobleman. Against all odds, she returns to Waar, only to find herself accused of kidnapping the Emperor’s beautiful daughter.

    Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention Eddie’s just plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie’s interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems she doesn’t want Eddie’s help.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Susannah Jones?

    No. I listened to the first book and it was good. Listened to the this book and was disappointed because it was the same book. There is a formula to this series and it got old after the second book.


    What about Susannah Jones’s performance did you like?

    Susannah is a wonderful narrator I would listen to her again.

    Everything we now know about the universe - from the behavior of quarks to the birth of galaxies - has come from people who've been willing to ponder the unanswerable. And with the advent of modern science, great minds have turned to testing and experimentation rather than mere thought as a way of grappling with some of the universe's most vexing dilemmas. So what is our latest picture of some of the most inexplicable features of the universe? What still remains to be uncovered and explored by today's scientists?

    Yes. But this was not a college course. It was more like a chat with Neil where he was talking to numerous people from varied backgrounds and education.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The narration was good but I never cared about any of the characters. I did not care if any of them made it to the next book or not.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brandon Sanderson? Why or why not?

    I might if it was a free or a daily deal. Definitely not the next Steelheart though.


    Was Steelheart worth the listening time?

    It was not a total waste but at the end I was glad it was over.

    A former Delta Force commander, Brad Taylor proves with this breathtaking debut thriller that Vince Flynn and Brad Thor have company. A collection of top operatives, the Taskforce was commissioned by the highest levels of government, kept secret from the media and even Congress. The best of the Taskforce bunch, Pike Logan knows the greatest threat to American security is one or two idealogues. Unfortunately for them, they’ve just crossed Pike’s path.

    What disappointed you about One Rough Man?

    The performance is awful. From the start the special ops guys sounded agitated that their plans were changing, like that had never happened. Mr. Taylor may have meant it to be calm and professional but the performance made it sound like they were panicking.I only made it through part of the Oval Office meeting (first 10 minutes?) before I stopped listening. I do not remember the operatives name that was meeting with the president but everytime he said yea the performer made it sound like there was an implied Oorah. I jumped to the end to mark this completed and the last few minutes were the same. When the operation was not going as planned the people called in and asked for advice?


    What was most disappointing about Brad Taylor’s story?

    I could not get past the first chapter so I do not know if it was a good book or not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not sure either J. D. Jackson or Neil Kaplan have listened to any special ops guys so they portrayed them as a civilian. Maybe it was the director that wanted the special ops sound that way.

    Jane Carver is nobody's idea of a space princess. A hard-ridin', hard-lovin' biker chick and ex-Airborne Ranger, Jane is as surprised as anyone else when, on the run from the law, she ducks into the wrong cave at the wrong time - and wakes up butt-naked on an exotic alien planet light-years away from everything she's ever known. Waar is a savage world of four-armed tiger-men, sky-pirates, slaves, gladiators, and purple-skinned warriors in thrall to a bloodthirsty code of honor and chivalry.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The dialog was great and different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not in one sitting but I listened to it in longer sessions than I normally did.

    The first book in C.J.Cherryh's eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author.

    What was most disappointing about C. J. Cherryh’s story?

    If you are into Diplomatic "thrillers" then you might like this. I got the concept that humans can screw up first contact. The book just dragged. The same info over and over again.
