    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    This thing was listed under Sci-fi & Fantasy and was recommended to me after purchasing an epic fantasy Scott Lynch's, 2nd book (Red Seas Under Red Skies) WHICH WAS AWESOME. I put it in my wish list after seeing the HUGE positive ratings.
    This book is fiction, sci-fi slightly... fantasy... barely. I would have some mature high school students read/listen to this book due to its easy going pace and somewhat interesting story-line. This book is NOT for epic fantasy fans or even hard core sci-fi fans. The narrator was good which is how I was able to get through this book.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Story

    Jim Butcher does not disappoint in this installment to what should be considered the greatest urban fantasy series! Harry is beat up, grimy and most of all laughing in the face of death. The story building done in Ghost Story pays MANY dividends in this novel. I'm not one for spoilers so I can only recommend this novel 100% to anyone on the fence!!!

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    Story

    This final part does a wonderful job of wrapping up the journey began with 2 thieves critiquing sloppy highwaymen. There is a decent amount of suspense and the air of ancient history permeates this whole volume. The ending is a bit abrupt and leaves a lot of questions open for future books if the author wishes to revisit this world. **spoiler** stop reading if you are sensitive to spoilers: What happens to the dwarves? What happens to the meer? What is the elven kingdom like? Exactly how many humans survived? Will the elves help remove the goblins from human lands? – There Is definitely room for more books.

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Story

    This first installment is a HUGE throwback to a more fun and relaxed storytelling method. This is not to say that there isn't sufficient drama, darkness and excitement. I am just saying that this story is brought about in such a way as to be equal parts slap-stick partners meets classic fantasy. It is a VERY enjoyable listen with a talented narrator. Kudos to MJS and I CANNOT wait to hear more!

    Barely a teenager, Kaylin Neya is a thief, a fugitive and an attempted assassin. She also has a smart mouth, sharp wits and mysterious markings on her skin. All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra - if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks!

    Lets be honest with each other... Normally the free stuff is TERRIBLE. Either it is too little or just not good. But, this is really the exception!! I loved this 4 hour introduction to the author and to the character. I will be buying the full novels and hoping they live up to the novella intro!

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Story

    This was a good book and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of fantasy or a fan of Card. The story has a feel to it of a fairy tale of old while combining modern life into the mix. The narration was very well done and the book answered just enough to satisfy while there is enough left open to want the next novel. The only problem i had was that the story was short. In all fairness we as readers are getting spoiled by the super novels that are generated these days... Jordan(Sanderson), Rothfus, Martin(when he finishes his books) so it may be my conditioning more that any wrong done by Card.

    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 - John Glover did a great job !!!!"

    This was a great story and great addition to the overall storyline !!! John Glover did a wonderful job with this audio book. Come on... He's Lex Luther's dad!
