    In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off - with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all. In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse the most enjoyable?

    Marc Thompson is a great voice actor and really tries to make each character stand on their own feet.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    First off I am a big Star Wars fan. But to me this book seemed to keep going and going like there would be no end and when the end came you are like wow about time. I think they started off with an interesting concept but book after book seemed to be the same thing.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    That he tries to use a different voice for each character.


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

    No I broke it up during travel time to work.

    Young Prince Gaborn of Mystarria is traveling in disguise on a journey to ask for the hand of the lovely Princess Iome of Sylvarresta. Armed with his gifts of strength and perception, the prince and his bodyguard stop at a local tavern, where they spot a pair of assassins who have their sights set on Princess Iome's father. As they race to warn the king, they realize that more than the royal family is at risk - the very fate of the Earth is in jeopardy.

    If you could sum up The Sum of All Men in three words, what would they be?

    Power Ambition Right


    Would you recommend The Sum of All Men to your friends? Why or why not?

    This is a book that I think some people would enjoy but maybe not a lot of my friends would. If they were looking for a book to read and had read most of my top ten books then I would recommend this series.

    Kylar Stern has rejected the assassin's life. The Godking's successful coup has left Kylar's master, Durzo, and his best friend, Logan, dead. He is starting over---new city, new friends, and new profession. But when he learns that Logan might actually be alive and in hiding, Kylar is faced with an agonizing choice: will he give up the way of shadows forever and live in peace with his new family, or will he risk everything by taking on the ultimate hit?

    Where does Shadow's Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It has to be close to the top maybe top ten or fifteen. I was only introduced to the Weeks universe a few years ago but have not been able to stop. I have read everything of his I could get my hands on and have loved each book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow's Edge?

    The trails that King goes through while in the hole to only realize when he comes out that the people in the hole aren't as different as the nobles he has to face day to day.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    They are all just really good in their own right that it is hard to choose but King does come to the top.


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

    If I take the job your new name is Deader

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, one this book is awesome no matter if you are reading to it or listening to it. But for the audiobooks I love when they bring different actors/actresses on board to help with the voice acting, or when the voice actor is so good you can't tell that it is one guy. It just brings the story to life more in my ears.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ender is always my favorite character due to the fact that he is such a young kid and to be put under so much pressure by the adults in this world and he comes through it all and saves the day.


    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison – was your favorite?

    Ender was done really well as was Col. Graff


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

    The Enemy's gate is always down!
