    "Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. Assignment: Locate the Unholy Grail, the cup Judas drank from at the Last Supper. It corrupts all who touch it, but it also grants enormous power."

    A User says: "Good Plot. Great Narrator!!"
    "Biblical proportions, or?"
    Overall

    For the second book in the series, he manages to kick it off with a bang and a pretty good plot twist.

    If you like the first book, you'll love this one.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    What would have made Dead Ever After better?

    Honestly!? Better writing and a solid, unique storyline would have helped. The book was slow, and dragged so badly, in places, that I was praying for an end to it, or me. I won't even talk about predictability...It's probably a good thing this was the last book in the series because I mostly likely would not bother to read another installment.I really liked this series and it is unfortunate that the final book was so unremarkable in its nature.I'm certain a lot of "die hard" Harris fans will have differing opinions, but objectively, it was not a particularly good effort for the final book in a series. Sorry, it is what it is.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Charlaine Harris again?

    Probably.

    The final conflict between Earl and the entity.

    Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden's lover-until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry.

    Julie D says: "WOW. I'm stunned!"

    Overall

    The twelfth book in the series is the best offering yet, IMHO. Nicely paced action, with so many players you need a program to keep them straight. Oh, and the plot twists are superbly woven into the storyline.

    A great many pieces of the series puzzle comes together in this book, with closely held secrets being revealed. For the long time Dresden Files followers, the ending will leave you mumbling to yourself in a dark room long after the last word is spoken.

    James Marsters delivers a superb performance, and arguably his best, artfully conveying the entire spectrum of human, and inhuman, emotion. His outstanding narrative accurately portrays the emotional state of the characters and captures the gritty, desperate, and "gut wrenching" feel of the story.

    Jim Butcher has expertly broadened the depth of the main characters and kept them new and fresh in this telling. Butcher has proven his ability to weave an intricate long term series storyline, while surrounding it with unique and interesting subplots. He again exhibits his extraordinary ability to draw the reader into identifying with the characters so completely, that when he sticks the metaphorical, or actual, knife in, the reader feels it as surely as if it were him or her.

    A superb piece of writing with an ending that will leave Dresden Files fans numb.

    A definite "MUST READ".

    Angela says: "The Nightside"
    "Something of an adjustment."
    Overall

    Admittedly, I had a bit of difficulty getting into the book at first. I found the somewhat repetitive nature of the character alluding to the "Nightside" every other sentence, as if you are not aware of where you are, a bit distracting. Once I became accustomed to Mr. Green's writing style, I went on to enjoy the storyline.

    Marc Vietor did an excellent job with the reading and his various voices added to the flow and tempo of the audio.

    Overall I liked the book and have gone on to read the rest of the series. However, I find this first installment to be my least favorite of the series. This is of course understandable; as Green gradually develops the characters and plot lines in later books, you begin to fully appreciate his talent for storytelling. It's worth the time and effort.

  • The Warded Man

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Meloney says: "Brilliant"
    "Interesting and unusual..."
    Overall

    I found the book to be interesting and imaginative, with a nice pace to the action. The introduction and development of a number of interesting characters, albeit brief for some, kept the book moving and provided a cross section of personalities that interacted well with the plot. There is no shortage of action, and subtle plot twists, not to mention the fact that Brett has no compunction concerning "killing off" characters to obtain the desired effect and further the storyline.

    I'm looking forward to the next installment in April 2010.

    Good read, I recommend the book.

    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.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Riveting and thought provoking"
    Overall

    An absolute joy to listen to. The storyline was so well thought out and riveting that I could hardly put it down. The author's character development and their interaction was thoughtful and provocative. I was so caught up in Ender's trials that the ending surprised even me. While the result is fairly predictable, that manner in which he takes you there is not. An excellent read.
