    Bobbi Anderson and the other good folks of Haven, Maine, have sold their souls to reap the rewards of the most deadly evil this side of Hell.

    Grant S. Burroughs says: "The old Stephen King"
    "Suspenseful, and fun"
    Overall

    While it's pretty dark and the sense that nearly all the townsfolk are damned, it's a fun ride with some laughs along the way. King kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see who would win in the end, and how the centerpiece of the story would up where it was, and who put it there!

    In an increasingly wired and computer-friendly world, massive multiplayer online games have become the ultimate form of entertainment. And the most popular gaming universe of all is Omnitopia, created by genius programmer Dev Logan. For millions of people around the world, Omnitopia is an obsession, a passionate pastime, almost a way of life. But there's a secret to Omnitopia, one that Dev would give his life to protect: the game isn't just a program or a piece of code.

    Thomas says: "Poking the Future with a 15' Pole"
    "Stagnant characters & soft SciFi"
    Overall

    If you're one who likes there science fiction to be entertaining, fun you might like this - but if you insist that the tech be built on somewhat believable foundations, then pass on this novel. While I enjoyed some of the idea behind the story, the hugely noticeable holes in the foundation of the science repeatedly dropped me out of the story. SciFi doesn't need to be proved out on paper, but the lack of even the smallest bridge from present day to this not so distant future was lacking entirely. And if you don't care about that, note that this is one of those books where the good guys are always good, and the bad always bad. Neither face situations that could sway them one way or another, they just seem to always be good, resulting in lucky days, and vice versa.

    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    Robert says: "It keeps getting even better"
    "Blew me away!"
    Overall

    Amazing, more action than the first book, and so much more of the story unravels to the reader in an incredible manner. The author is patient and seemingly insignificant characters and events in Book 1 take on relevance with so many suprises, excellent read! loved!

    Story
    (537)

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Jeri says: "I should have known better..."
    "Bad production"
    Overall

    I love Audio books but you might want to pick up the paperback for this third act. The narration is terrible, the team didn't do any of their homework and despite finishing the listen, I'm dissapointed - I don't think I received the story the author intended due to the low-rate audio production.
