    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Overall

    I was impressed with Sanderson's writing after he took over for Wheel of time, so I bought Mistborn - and enjoyed it very much. I'm about 1/2 way through The Way of Kings, and I must say it is awesome. Its amazing how he can pump out such quality stuff so quickly. I've been waiting for the next Fire and Ice book for 5 or 6 years, and Sanderson has put out 5 or 6 novels in that time. Anyway, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read/listen. I would recommend to anyone who likes sify.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Bill says: "Not the best audio book in the series"
    "Great book, miss James Marsters"
    Overall

    I first read the ebook, and loved it. I have listened to all of the audio books, and was looking forward to hearing James Marsters for Ghost Story. I was greatly disappointed with the new narration. Nothing against the new guy, but after 12 books, you look forward to hearing the voices a certain way. Honestly, I will not purchase future audio books in this series if they are not narrated by Marsters. I'll even go so far as to say that they should have this one re-recorded. So I rated the book on the narration, and not the content (which would have garnered 5 stars)

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    "WOW!"
    Overall

    Ok. First, I never write reviews. I personally thought this was the best of the series. I've listened to all of the WOT audio books at least twice. Brandon Sanderson has come into his own, and I look forward to anything he writes in the future. I never once during this book did I see a difference between Sanderson and Jordan. The only think bad I could say, is that I wanted more. I really didn't want it to end. Can't wait for the final book.
