    There’s something out there: a juggernaut of evil bearing down to crush the Republic - unless one lone Jedi, shunned and reviled, can stop it. Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians - and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave Revan his life back, but his memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares - and deep, abiding fear. What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget.

    If you could sum up Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan in three words, what would they be?

    This was a great book all the way up until the end, until the writer placates Lucas by killing of the Exile and placing Revan in perpetual lock down. All so he doesn't have to make a third in what was supposed to be a trilogy (Game). What a sad and disappointing end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Revan and Exile


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Did a very good job


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

    When Revan proclaim "Revan reborn"


    Any additional comments?

    Wish it would have ended better.

  • Elvenblood: Halfblood Chronicles, Book 2

    The powerful magic of ruthless Elvenlord masters has for centuries ruled the world. Even Shana, the legendary Elvenbane prophesied to deliver the oppressed into freedom, is helpless before such power. She and her ragtag band of outcasts, half-blood wizards, escaped human slaves, and free-thinking dragons have gained only a token victory against the mighty lords. Only the long-forgotten Iron People, a band of human nomads, have escaped the tyranny of the reigning wizards.

    The whole book was very engaging.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Elvenblood?

    .


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

    She did a very awesome job with this and the last book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book in the series. Was really waiting for Elvenbred and was sad to hear that Andre had pasted away.
    Mercedes finished Elvenbred, about 1/3 way through it. So far so good.

    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elvenbane to be better than the print version?

    Both had there good points.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it kept me captivated all the way though.


    Any additional comments?

    I first started reading this book about 10 years ago and couldn't wait for the next book to come out. It was a truly great read. Am really glad it came out as an audio book.

    Fully 100,000 years ago, the galaxy was populated by a great variety of beings. But one species - eons beyond all others in both technology and knowledge - achieved dominance. They ruled in peace but met opposition with quick and brutal effectiveness. They were the Forerunners - the keepers of the Mantle, the next stage of life in the Universe’s Living Time. And then they vanished. This is their story.

    Would you listen to Halo: Cryptum again? Why?

    Yes, just to hear anything I may have missed, just to get a better sense of what it was like for the Forerunners.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Halo: Cryptum?

    ***Spoilers*** The very end when the last Precursor states that they created the Forerunners and they were no different than Humans by rising up and destroying the Precursor civilization.


    Any additional comments?

    Thought it was a little funny that at one point Bornstellar (when he was thinking) refers to a ships captain as a Human.
