    The popular adventures of Miles Vorkosigan, a clever and outlandish science fiction hero for the modern era, continue in these three tales. In The Mountains of Mourning, Miles is dispatched to a back-country region of Barrayar, where he must act as detective, judge, and executioner in a controversial murder case. In Labyrinth, Miles adopts his alternate persona as Dendarii Mercenary Admiral Naismith for an undercover mission to rescue an important research geneticist from Jackson’s Whole.

    DERALD says: "Even better than expected"
    "Finally"
    Overall

    Finally, some of the stories alluded to in many of LMB's stories told in full. As usual characters that you must love, Narration great!
    Not a must in enjoying the series, but a treat to have some new adventures with miles before he became the Imperial Auditor!

    As people start to recall the Oracle's prophecy, Erius begins to quietly kill off his female relatives who pose the only threat to his monarchy. Constantly in fear for her life, Princess Ariani the King's sister, gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl. But Ariani is married to Lord Rhius, the patron of the powerful wizard Iya, and Iya has sinister plans for the babes.

    Katherine says: "Easy to like"
    "Three book that should have been one"
    Overall

    This is a great story that could be abridged into one book nicely, but instead is dragged out over three books with tedious detail. That being said the characters are lovable enough to force you to read to the end. I doubt that this is one that I will read again.

    In the tradition of T.H. White's The Once and Future King, the author makes use of the prerequisites of the Arthurian legend: Excalibur, the Holy Grail, Lancelet's illicit love for Gwenhwyfar, the destruction of Camelot, but with a twist - she presents the entire panoramic story from the female point of view.

    leslie says: "Excellent Narration-Frustrating Hatchet Job"
    "uugh"
    Overall

    Who knew you could get bored in story about Camelot , all the characters were there, the setting was set, the story unwound, somehow it just never got interesting. Maybe I have just heard this story done so well and so creatively too many times. On a positive note the narration was great

    Lummox is not exactly the family dog. Big as a triceratops but more exotic in appetite (he once ate a Buick), "Lummy" has a decided penchant for trouble. Still, he's been part of the Stuart clan for generations, and his current owner, John Thomas Stuart XI, cares for him deeply. Just how deeply will be tested when Lummox's restless appetite starts a chain of events that turn his relationship with John Thomas upside down, and puts first John Thomas, and then the Earth itself, in peril.

    Kathryn says: "Teen main characters - fun twist to the story"
    "good book bad play"
    Overall

    Narrated fine but the Cast just was not the best way to listen to this type of story, the characters voices just didn't jibe with my imagination.

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    D. Ramirez says: "I normally wouldn't, but..."
    "Spot on!"
    Overall

    Wow! I am so glad Sanderson completed this book. When Jordan passed away we not only had to morn a great writer but also the WOT and all the characters. The Darkness had won and the pattern was no more....but death is not the end when time is a wheel.... so the story lives again! Thank the light Michael Kramer and Kate Reading narrated, it would have been hard to listen to new voices. Matt has always been one of the best characters in this tale, but after this story he has moved on to my top ten list of favorite characters.

    After exposing the secret source of blood for half of Manhattan's Vampyres, private eye Joe Pitt is definitely a dead man walking. For a year he's sloshed around the subway tunnels and sewers, tapping the veins of the lost, while above ground a Vampyre civil war threatens to drag the Clans into the sunlight once and for all. What's it gonna take to dig him up?

    Overall

    Warning this is not the next book in Joe Pitt's series , it is book 5. A lot has gone on since No Dominion. Huston has a way of telling his story that you will not be lost but it will ruin the other two books. that said great book! Scott Brick perfect for this narration.

    Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with. But when Kate's werewolf friend Derek is discovered nearly dead, she must confront her greatest challenge yet. As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games---an invitation-only, no-holds-barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament---she and Curran, the Beast Lord, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community.

    Overall

    I have found myself hooked on this series, can't wait for the next! Usually by the third book of a series the characters get tiresome, and the story overdrawn, not so with this set although I do not want to wait too much longer for a good roll with the beast king.

    There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while. Unfortunately, she wasn't alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don't, when they're vampires.

    LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE FROM THIS AUTHOR!

    Where deadly energy ghosts lurk in the ruins of an ancient alien civilization. Where dust bunnies prove to be loyal pets. And where a ghost hunter will discover that a woman's heart is the most dangerous adversary of all...Local Guild boss and powerful ghost-hunter Cooper Boone is everything botanist Elly St. Clair could ask for - the handsome, strong, and silent type. Maybe too silent. For when Guild secrets threaten her career at the college, Elly has to call off their marriage - and leave small-town life behind...

    Light fun read, almost like anime with the dust bunnies. If you enjoyed this author she also writes as Amanda Quick and Jayne Ann Krentz but audible didn't bother to link her books
