    Story
    (258)

    Woody Allen is at his best here, recounting a recurring dream that casts himself as one of history’s greatest thinkers: the imprisoned and condemned philosopher Socrates. In the face of execution, Allen’s version of Socrates is prepared for an ironic death, if not a noble one.

    Overall

    Expected (hoped for) better, but as the title says: "Short, Free, so What the Heck" It will get you home after a long evening meeting and the other audiobook ended with just a few miles to go.

    It is a world where magic is forbidden – yet practiced in secret every day. But each small act of magic exacts a dreadful price – for it brings the bramble, which chokes farmland, destroys villages, and kills with its deadly thorns. In this world an alchemist believes he’s found a solution to the curse. But will the cure be worse than the disease? And a woman is forced to take up the mantle of her father, the Executioner. But it will not be the only death that she faces.

    Overall

    The female narrator is absolutely wonderful. The story is clever, but it ended without any real resolution. Definitely looking forward to the next installment (there is one, right?)

    Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved and survived the "Doomsday Killer" case, and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries.

    "Wonderful, but hear 7th Son first"
    Overall

    I had never heard of Glenn Cooper before downloading Secret of the 7th Son, but he's well worth listening to. The narrator is excellent. I can't wait to get into the car so I can keep listening.

    However, don't listen to this one first. The 7th Son is the first story and if you were to listen to them in reverse, I think you'd miss a lot.
