    Turning 27 may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the midwestern United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target.

    Overall a great listen. This book is a little different from Terry Goodkind's other books of this series. Whereas the other books take place in a fantasy world, this book returns back to the "real" world and links it to the previous books, which is very intriguing and something i never expected. Great job, looking forward to the next book in the series.

    An accident leads to the discovery of a mysterious machine that has rested hidden deep underground for countless millennia. The machine awakens to begin issuing a series of increasingly alarming, if minor, omens. The omens turn out to be astonishingly accurate, and ever more ominous. As Zedd tries to figure out how to destroy the sinister device, the machine issues a cataclysmic omen involving Richard and Kahlan, foretelling an impending event beyond anyone’s ability to stop. As catastrophe approaches, the machine then reveals that it is within its power to withdraw the omen....

    Story

    This book is supposed to be right after the end of the sword of truth series, yet the story is written as if assuming the reader has never read the previous books. This is extremely frustrating especially if you've read the previous books as you'll often find yourself trying to mentally tell the character "you know this!, remember we've been here before, yet the story is written as if this is new information. Richard Rahl is supposed to be very perceptive, and yet acts like he's discovering the uses of subtractive magic all over again. Overall very disappointing book, and not recommended.

    Jason Bourne's nemesis Arkadin is still hot on his trail and the two continue their struggle, reversing roles of hunter and hunted. When Bourne is ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding. In safety, he takes on a new identity, and begins a mission to find out who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is, how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would become if that was suddenly taken away from him.

    Lanny says: "Disappointed"
    "A fair book IF you are a Bourne series fan"
    Overall

    I'm a pretty big bourne series fan so naturally i got this book without a second thought, should have known though that Eric Van Lustbader is no Robert Ludlum. Its a half decent book but i'm kind of tire of ALL themes being the same, especially in the last 2 books. Eric Van Lustbader needs to come up with some new ideas!

    On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all.

    "A Decent Sci-Fi audiobook"
    Overall

    The concept presented in this book isn't ground breaking but it is the way the story is told that sets this book apart from others. I would give this book 5 stars except i think they could have added a prequel to the book or atleast a decent back story before plunging the listeners into the world of Hyperion. Still overall its a good book and worth the credit.

    "Great book for patient listeners"
    Overall

    Overall, i really enjoyed this book. I'm an avid listener of multi-part series from various authors and out of all of the (Eg: Wheel of time, Legend of the Seeker.....etc), this series is by far my favorite. Yes this book has some downfalls like every other multi-part series, authors sometimes drone on with details to fill the page, but for the the most part all the little details that are introduced in the first book play a big part in the next few books. The various races introduced in the books are one of its biggest assets . If you like Sci-Fi, Space, Extraterrestrials, Politics (the bearable kind) and potential of human ingenuity, you'll love this book.

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    The book is very disorganized with regards to how the plot develops and to make it worse provides little to no background information on the main plot characters. Its as if the author assumed that we would know the prequel and continued from there.

    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    Douglas says: "Great adventure! Hard to put down."
    "Great Book"

    One of the best audiobooks. Although predictable, it has enough suspense to keep you listening. Voice acting is great too.

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    BSquared67 says: "A rollicking thriller"
    "Too many changes in direction"
    Overall

    The story's not bad, but in every chapter the book dramatically changes direction and alters the main personality. Wouldnt recommended this book.
