    Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin. He has barely survived his first, soul-shattering mission, and when he returns to the court, he is thrown headfirst into the tumult of royal life.

    What did you love best about Royal Assassin?

    This was part of an epic tale. I loved the characters and how they were interwoven into the story


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

    I listened to this and book 3 while travelling. I loved it and it made the long drive much more enjoyable. Almost couldn't stop for gas because I would have to pause the story.

    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    If you could sum up Into the Storm in three words, what would they be?

    Crazy, Epic, endearing....I want more and from the looks of things I will!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Capt Reddy...never give up...I like those who face adversity and just keep going forward. This tale includes many who are faced with the unthinkable and they follow the unwavering direction of the Captain and he does not let it go to his head!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The best SYFY movie idea of the century!!

    Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

    What about Tim Gerard Reynolds’s performance did you like?

    There are some voice actors who do a good job, there are some who do a great job and then there are the few who do the best job. Gerard is one of those voice actor's who I actually search for before I do the author. I want to see what he has recorded and often buy based on that!

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker find themselves caught between the nation they swore to defend and the allies they promised to protect. For even as the Allies and the Empire of New Britain Isles stand united against the attacks of both the savage Grik and the tenacious Japanese, the "Holy Dominion" - a warped mixture of human cultures whose lust for power overshadows even the Grik - is threatening to destroy them both with a devastating weapon neither can withstand.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Firestorm the most enjoyable?

    The author is consistent with allowing an equal measure of success by the allies but random acts of defeat by the evil empires they fight. Mixed in is a creative use of US Military might circa 1950. The story if fun almost seems real at times!!


    If you’ve listened to books by Taylor Anderson before, how does this one compare?

    This was book 6 in the series...I have listened to them all! And will listen to the remaining ones to see if the epic battle will end all conflict. At times I want to see it made into a movie or tv series and then I would rather the imagery to stay with the book.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    I love this audio actor. Different voices, lots of expression...you can almost see the facial expression of the characters as he reads their parts.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no laugh no cry but I think I may have done a fist pump or two after successful campaigns

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "A Story that you never want to end"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Winter of the World to be better than the print version?

    didn't read the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were too many to ignore so it is hard to pick one that stands out. I do wish that Lady Maude played a bigger role during the German occupation.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    it is fun to hear his interpretation of the various characters especially the American service men.

    Robin Hobb's thrilling Soldier Son trilogy comes to its conclusion in Renegade's Magic. Nevare Burvelle stands accused of a host of heinous crimes, including murder. And he remains under the thrall of the Speck magic that twists his psyche into a ruthless alter-ego. But all is not lost. Perhaps if he asserts control of this other self, he will emerge transformed and triumphant.

    What disappointed you about Homeland?

    I listened for 6 hours but could not really get into the book. I was hard to imagine living in darkness


    Would you ever listen to anything by R. A. Salvatore again?

    Most likely won't ever listen to anything from this author again


    Would you be willing to try another one of Victor Bevine’s performances?

    The voice actor was fine to listen to and I wouldn't have a problem listening to his performances again
