    What made the experience of listening to The Shadow the most enjoyable?

    Being able to close your eyes, use your imagination and let your mind create all the special effects is amazing.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    How the shadow is able to outsmart everyone is amazing, but you know in the end he will live

    All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

    Days left till the final battle. Demigods prepare to fight the impossible war that is coming and the Gods are busy fighting another threat. How do you win a war with the Titans when the Gods are not there.

    a exciting end to the series. with twists no one would expect. Just a few more hours till you get to the end make sure you have time to listen to this because its going to be painful if you have to stop lots while you listen.

    One more challenge. Why cant summer camp just be normal. Oh yeah Percy Jackson is a demigod one of the few at camp half blood. and when the evil Titan king is raising and he hates you and your camp. well you got to fight for survival. Defenses are up but there is one disadvantage. A secret door into the camp will let monsters in past the tree.

    In this book Jesse Bernstein makes a change up. He goes from pronouncing Hera the American way to pronouncing it the Greek way. this is a big confusing moment to listeners but after a while you get use to it

    After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

    They stopped the father of the Gods from raising up, But they did not end his scheming. Now the tree that protects the valley is poisoned. Grover is in Percy's dreams and the end of the camp is near. Percy has to stay back as his rival in the camp gets to go on a quest to save camp. Does he behave or sneak away to save Grover and the tree.

    Again the narration is fantastic. Everyone knows who is talking at any point and the voices are the same from book one making it just as easy to follow. another book that's great for family or solo.

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Story

    Rick Riordan has created a great story that merges Greek Mythology with the modern world. Did you know that the Greek Gods have moved to america? that they still have demi gods? Those demi gods have a training camp (no Danny Daveto does not train them). What happens when the symbol of Zeus is stolen?

    Jesse Bernstein does a great job narrating this story making sure that every important person in the story has a great and unique voice. his skills make it so that its easy to follow the story and powerful enough to keep them entertained.

    This be a book for your kids on a long car ride or for your personal listen I think you will enjoy this book no matter where you are, or what you are doing.

    Story

    What would you do if you saw your dad blow up a ancient Egyptian artifact? doubt I would be as cool and calm as these two kids. especially after learning out i can do magic, that a god wants to kill me as well as other magicians.

    With the help of a Goddess, and the two gods hidding in these sibblings they will take on this evil god. but will they submit to the demands of the gods inside them to take over or can they hold them off.

    What i love about this book is that when is Sadi telling the story Katherine Kellgren is narrating it. and when Carter is telling the story Keven Free takes over. making it feel much like you are actually hearing the tape recording of them telling everything. this gives it a great added perk from reading the story.

    my only down side is after the two series i have hard of Percy Jackson well, this is so similar that I can predict lots that are happening. they also hint in this about the Olympian gods in New York.

    Tavi of Calderon, now recognized as Princeps Gaius Octavian and heir to the crown, has achieved a fragile alliance with Alera's oldest foes, the savage Canim. But when Tavi and his legions guide the Canim safely to their lands, his worst fears are realized. The dreaded Vord - the enemy of Aleran and Cane alike - have spent the last three years laying waste to the Canim homeland. And when the Alerans are cut off from their ships, they find themselves with no choice but to fight shoulder to shoulder if they are to survive.

    Story

    Tavi has declared his claim to the throne, no longer is he Tavi but Gaies Octavian, grandson of the High Lord. yet for his safety he must leave his nation, if his mission is successful he can prove he is worthy of the throne. he can use furies now but he is not talented enough for much. and he is keeping it a secret. few know, his closest allies.

    when he gets to the foreign land he finds that the queen has settled, and that very very few Canim are left. they are trying to defend and the blood magic is not enough. Octavian now must convince the Canim to leave their ancestoral home and come to Alera in order to survice.

    at home the original queen is invading and Alera was foolish enough to not listen to the warnings so they are unprepared to fight. a host of insects that with each new breed are able to adapt to the changes the forces offer. monsters with speed to match air furries, skill to match metal, strength to match earth furries. Yet Sextus has a plan of his own. and Bernard with his own efforts has valley is fortified. now a slow retreat to the capital will there be a home for Octavian and his army to return to?

    Kate Reading does another fantastic job reading this book. and is one that you can read over and over again. well listen over and over. and she keeps you captivated the entire time.

    In his acclaimed Codex Alera novels, best-selling author Jim Butcher has created a fascinating world in which the powerful forces of nature take physical form. For millennia, the people of Alera have used their unique bond with these elementals for protection. Now, as enemies become allies, and friends become bitter foes, a danger beyond reckoning looms. . . .

    Story

    Jim Butcher has done this again, trapped everything into a book, magic, Romans, love, prison brake and more. his writing is as good as ever. Tavi has work to do, he is now captain of a army. still without any furries of his own he needs to use ingenuity to defend from a attack, but with a spy in the camp is he safe. especially a spy who knows who he really is.

    There is one thing I don't like, and its my personal opinion, but Butcher is starting to put more and more sex into his novels. to many authors I find start off with no sex, or very little and are discrete, then after a few books there is lots of detailed sex. I personally find it ruins the magic of a book, and I am finding Jim Butcher is doing that here too.

    i still really love the reversal of magic you find in this world, its fantastic and amazing, everything else is great. of course he still needs to work on foreshadow but maybe i just read to much that i can make the connection quickly.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Enders Shadow was a great book to listen to yes, but it was to predictable. I am not referring to the fact we know the main plot in Enders Game is going to be the main plot here. but even the struggles Bean had to face where similar to that of Ender Wiggins. Bean had to fight a bully at school. Bean had to prove he was the best. Bean was the youngest in his launch.

    It just was not the same quality I found. sorry
