    There are many who do not wish for peace. As the Free Legion declares war on the survivors of Hollow Rock, Gabriel and Eric find themselves drawn ever deeper into the growing conflict. Aided by a fledgling militia, and a small contingent of federal operatives, the two warriors must find a way to defeat an unyielding enemy that threatens to destroy all they have grown to love.

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

    It is a good follow up to book 2, It is worth a listen if you can stand the narrator


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Warrior Within?

    Nothing huge stands out, but a solid read


    How could the performance have been better?

    Go back to the original narrator. I can get over the voice changing from 2 to 3, but not the best choice. Especially annoying is he makes Gabe sound like batman now, I wouldn't say it "ruined" the book, but was for sure a bad performance.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes, for sure

    In The Dragon Factory, Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences square off against two separate groups of corrupt scientists. The beautiful but twisted Jakoby Twins are creating transgenic monsters and genetically enhanced mercenaries for sale to the highest bidder. Their father, who takes evil to an entirely new level, is using cutting-edge science to complete the Nazi master-race program.

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

    I sure would, great story, and of course... Joe Ledger..


    What other book might you compare The Dragon Factory to and why?

    Would be hard to compare really, only comparison would be others in the series, and they are super.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ray Porter's performances are top notch in my opinion, I love his narration and think he has nailed all of the people in the series!

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."

    America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

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

    Yes, I feel the content was good and once I got over the horrible narration after the third listen, I enjoyed the content.


    What could Dan Heath and Chip Heath have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Find a different Narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    Find a different Narrator


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only if the Narrator was not in it.
