    Logan Tom is doomed to remember the past and determined to rescue the future. Far behind him lies a boyhood cut violently short by his family's slaughter, when the forces of madness and hate swept our world after decadent excesses led to civilization's downfall. Somewhere ahead of him rests the only chance to beat back the minions of evil that are systematically killing and enslaving the last remnants of humanity.

    Overall

    I loved Terry Brooks' Magic Kingdom series years ago and this story has me hooked AGAIN. I enjoyed Dick Hill immensely! He adds so much to the moods and emotions in the story. I just downloaded the next two books in the series! I recommend this to anyone who loves a GREAT "read". If you think you don't care for the fantasy genre, this might change your mind.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Story

    Sadly for me the last book, but a wonderful ending and a lot of enlightenment. Kat is an amazin young woman and her story is so riveting. I think Ms. Collins not only "pulled it off" but with style! The best thing for me about the ending is the feeling of hope and joy and a solid relationship after a lot of hardship. It made me cry!

    Story

    I kept on reading and couldn't put it down. The action is fantastic and the character development is superb. I loved these kids and was in awe of their ability to adapt. I don't know what I would do in a situation like that, but I sure wouldn't be as resourceful. This book really follows thru without having the dry "fill-in" feeling that a lot of middle books in a series do. I recommend this book to anyone, especially our youth. Life is a struggle and you can come out of it with honor!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    I don't think I can say enough good things about this series. It isn't just a good read but a profound though provoking look at humanity and youth and personal struggle. I just enjoyed it so much I didn't want it to end.

    A serial killer is hunting the Pacific Northwest, murdering victims in a gruesome and spectacular way. The local police suspect "monsters" are involved, and have called in Anita Blake and Edward, U.S. Marshals who really know their monsters, to catch the killer.

    Story

    I WAS an avid fan of Laurell K. Hamilton until about 3 books ago. Then I don't know what happened, but the Anita Blake books just aren't cuttin' it anymore. Too much repetetion of what's gone before (and I don't mean to bring a new reader up to speed). To much just boring sex - seems like it's to fill pages - and not a whole lot of focus or plot that is interesting. Sorry, but this may be the last book of hers I read.
    Kimberly Alexis on the otherhand does a superior job as usual. I don't think I could have made it through the whole book if she hadn't been reading. She's perfect for Anita and all her groupies.

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    Story

    A wonderfully written story with a "spot on" intricate plot line that would make Sir Arthur Conan Doyle a happy man. Mr. Horowitz has definately done his homework and made this a totally complete trip down Sherlock Holmes memory lane. Loved it. Highly recommend it. The performance by Derek Jacobi lent itself to the perfect ambiance.

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    Kim Harrison's stories keep getting better! I love this series. The first book started out a bit slow, but she's developed some great charachers and expanded their world for a great read.
    One problem with this one 'tho - the change in narrators totally sucks! Marguerite Gavin is sooo much better with this book! Ms. Bermingham just doesn't have the multiple voice thing down. Yeesh!

    Laura Caxton vowed never to face them again. The horror of what the vampires did is too close, the wounds too fresh. But when Jameson Arkeley, broken and barely recognizable, comes to her with an unfathomable, unholy discovery, her resolve crumbles.

    This book is a great sequel to 13 Bullets and I've become a true fan of Laura Caxton. I hope David Wellington writes more books about her. Again, Bernadette Dunne does a superb job of narrating.

    All the official reports say they are dead—extinct since the late ’80s, when a fed named Arkeley nailed the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him. But Arkeley knows what most people don’t: there is one left. In an abandoned asylum she is rotting, plotting, and biding her time in a way that only the undead can. When state trooper Laura Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the night, it is Arkeley who gets the assignment.

    Flavius says: "A Pleasant Time-Killer"
    "Great listen!"
    Overall

    This book is a great "read" and I enjoyed every minute of it. The reader Bernadette Dunne is outstanding. If you like paranormal stuff this is for you. Be sure to read this before you read 99 Coffins.

    Six months after her husband's sudden death, Leonora Galloway sets off on a holiday in Paris with her daughter Penelope. Their journey starts with an unscheduled stop at the imposing Thiepval Memorial to the dead of the Battle of the Somme near Amiens. Amongst those commemorated is Leonora's father. The date of his death is recorded as April 30, 1916. But Leonora wasn't born until March 14, 1917.

    Overall

    I have ALL of the audiobooks by Robert Goddard that Audible has made available. It's a shame that some of the previous books have dropped off the lists because they are wonderfully written and the narrator couldn't be better. This one is especially good because it really twists and turns and keeps you wondering and the ending is so "different". I highly recommend it and it seems you'd better grab it while it's still available. I love looooong books and this one fills that bill very nicely.
