    From Shanghai to Wake Island, the Corps was America’s first line of defense as the winds of war exploded into the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, an elite fraternity united by courage and honor, as they steel themselves for battle, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice....

    What did you love best about Semper Fi?

    Surprised. It's interesting, funny, serious with great characters. I highly recommend it.

    The end. It leaves you wanting more and there is.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole thing is moving and very understandable for people my age, man or woman.

    It's an idyllic late-summer day in Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is fly-fishing with his two daughters when he stumbles upon the mutilated body of a moose. Whatever - or whoever - attacked the animal was ruthless: half the animal's face has been sliced away, the skin peeled back from the flesh. Shaken by the sight, Joe starts to investigate what he hopes in an isolated incident.

    Carole P. Bronico says: "Joe Pickett at his best!"
    "Not like the others. It's more like a .5 book"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. This book is just about Joe, family and daily work issues. The only strange thing is some wild life deaths.


    If you’ve listened to books by C. J. Box before, how does this one compare?

    This is nothing like the others I read.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Could you see Trophy Hunt being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, to slow


    Any additional comments?

    If you didn't read this one you wouldn't miss anything in the series.

    Kylar Stern has rejected the assassin's life. The Godking's successful coup has left Kylar's master, Durzo, and his best friend, Logan, dead. He is starting over---new city, new friends, and new profession. But when he learns that Logan might actually be alive and in hiding, Kylar is faced with an agonizing choice: will he give up the way of shadows forever and live in peace with his new family, or will he risk everything by taking on the ultimate hit?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm really enjoying this series. I find the characters entertaining with a good story.
    I am always waiting to see what is going to happen next, that means it is a good read.
    This coming from someone that is not a big fantasy reader.
    Enjoy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow's Edge?

    To many really.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When student meets teacher is a good one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Where magic and life collide.


    Any additional comments?

    It's hard to make a really good fantasy that I enjoy, but a whole series that's saying something. Good job.
