    Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

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

    I have already recommended this audiobook to friends. It is well read, and the reader made it a pleasure to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the story unique with some interesting twists. The only thing I dislike is waiting for the sequel. I want more now!

    A dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if it were a different book - one with original ideas and one that didn't seem to talk down to the reader.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    nothing from this series


    Any additional comments?

    the reader was the only reason I finished the book. He had a pleasant enough voice that I stuck it out to the end. He did not have much to work with though. The book was trivial, unoriginal, and rather boring. The author obviously doesn't write for young audiences very much as he talks down to the reader. This aspect added insult to an already badly written book.

    Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after....

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

    Not having seen the print version, I would have to say that Will Patton does such a wonderful job, I can't imagine wanting to read the print version now.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No clear favorite. I loved all of the major characters.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    He has a perfect voice for creating the feel of the region and for making the characters come to life.

    It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive. Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them - not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain.

    Helene Wecker's dazzling debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures who appear mysteriously in 1899 New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a strange man who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York Harbor. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian Desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

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

    I really loved this book. The storyline keeps one involved and with Jim Dale reading, how could it go wrong. I was enthralled from the first word to the last.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Dale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I honestly don't think he has ever done anything that wasn't fantastic, so to compare would mean nothing. It is amazing as all of his performances are.
