    Struggling to protect the legacy of his Traveler father, Gabriel faces troubling new questions and relentless threats. His brother Michael, now firmly allied with the enemy, pursues his ambition to wrest power from Nathan Boone, the calculating leader of the Brethren. And Maya, the Harlequin warrior pledged to protect Gabriel at all costs, is forced to make a choice that will change her life forever.

    Overall

    I was impressed with the imagination of the author in respects to his approach to spirtuality in all of his novels. His story telling had a very natural rhythm in the first two novels. Twelve Hawks' story telling reached a high in The Dark River. Plot points seemlessly flowed and felt very real and organic. Unfortuantely, The Golden City, while expanding on some great ideas on the spiritual planes fell short in the story telling dept. It had the feel of an author that was rushed, heavily edited, or lost intrest in his own storyline. The resolutions to the conflicts are barely believeable and utterly unsatisfying. The Golden City is not a bad read, just an extremely dissapointing ending to the story arc created in the first two novels.

    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....

    "Felt forced"
    Overall

    Couldn't really get into this as much as I had in the other two. Not because of it's darker mood but because the events felt disjointed and not very polished. Plot points were either rushed through or handled untidily. My overall feeling was of apathy for the characters and their situations.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    Lauren says: "Great voice adds to already amazing story"
    "Nearly Pitch Perfect"
    Overall

    The story is very reminiscent of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series in its tone. The reader's voice is pitch perfect for most of the characters. Neil Gaiman's touch is evident in the plot and some of the characters while Pratchett's voice is evident in the dialouge and the more whimsical elemts of the story. Over all an enjoyable listen.
