    Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse. Accompanied by the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the incidents. Could these cases just be appalling coincidences? Or is a maniac playing God with people's lives? When someone close to the Women's Murder Club begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.

    Story

    The 5th book in the womens murder club is not as good as the previous 4. There was very little in this book about the 'women's club' and it focused heavily on Lindsey and Yuki, giving me the feeling that the author is straying from the friendships these women share and the core of what sparked this whole series. A few quick and short chapters and no further developement of the girls. Not as solid as the others and I had more questions than answers at the book's end. I was hoping for more than the book delivered.

    Robet Stanek wrote this amazing page turner starring former NSA agent Scott Evers. Evers has to solve a horrific crime: the assassination of his entire operations teams while working against the clock to save himself and his family. Do not miss reading this book if you are like mysteries and thrillers.

    Candid and fast-paced like the best combat memoirs, Stanek focuses on the men and women he flew with, telling their stories as well as his own and creating what is ultimately an inspiring and uplifting story of the human spirit challenged by the agony and terror of war.

    Stormjammers is the true story of EW and combat flyers in the first Gulf War. In all my years of reading, I have never been so moved by a story as I was by this one. Robert Stanek is not only one of the finest authors of our times, he's also a true hero.

    Charlie doesn't want to believe it when he discovers that he can hear people in photographs talking. But his horrible aunts are delighted: it means that he is one of the chosen and must attend Bloor's Academy for gifted children. Once there, Charlie realizes that some of his classmates have equally mysterious powers, and soon Charlie is involved in uncovering the mysterious past of one of them.

    Nicole says: "Adults Take on Charlie Bone"
    "Charlie inherits psychic abilities..."
    Overall

    Midnight for Charlie Bone is the first book in the Children of the Red King series.
    This series is meant for very young readers, ages around 7 to 9 are probably best. The main story is about Charlie, a 10 year old boy who lives with his mom and grandma. When Charlie inherits the family gift (psychic abilities), Charlie is sent off to a Hogwarts-like school for training. This school is called Bloors, all very English as the author is from Wales. At Bloor's, Charlie is thrust into the neverendling battle of good vs evil. He meets new friends and faces new foes. For this type of story done much better for all ages, try Arianna Kelt and the Wizards of Skyhall.

    The enchanter Count Harken is back to take his revenge on the Red King's heirs, starting with Charlie Bone's family! Can Charlie get past an army of trolls, rescue Runner Bean and Charlie's ancestors, and get out before it's too late, or will Count Harken finally succeed....

    Jamie says: "A new adventure for Charlie Bone"
    "A new adventure for Charlie Bone"
    Overall

    Charlie Bone and the Shadow is the seventh book in the Children of the Red King series. Count Harken is back to try to get revenge on the heirs of the Red King. His plot this time is to go back in time to get to Charlie before Charlie was ever born. It is up to Charlie to save his ancestor and save himself. Dad Bone and Mom Bone are not in this one as they go off on a second honeymoon, so no father son team up to squash the bad guy. Sorely missing are Emma and Olivia, the only real female characters. Emma has one scene and Olivia is not even in the story. For a series with better characters, strong female leads and more adventure, try Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches.

    Arianna Kelt is a reformed thief and wizard seer. Now you wouldn't think being a wizard seer would be such a big deal, but it is a big deal to the Wizards of Skyhall. For you see, these particular wizards are sworn to protect the citizens of Earth from all the things they shouldn't know about - namely wizards, warlocks, and all the creatures of the magical realms that no humans should know exist.

    What a fantastic book and a story that'll bring your imagination to life! My family truly enjoyed listening to the first one and we were so excited when the new one came out recently. This young author has tremendous talent and the story is fun and exciting. Digorence the gnome is hillarious.

    The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books are a fantastic listen for any age! What I love about the books is that they get better and better as the series goes along, going from very good to fantastic to phenominal. The author creates the perfect atmosphere with well developed characters and vividly described landscapes to transport you to another world. It's excellent fantasy and a great listen, but you have to start with the first book to understand this one. It has excellent relisten value as I have relistened to the entire set multiple times and so have other members of my family.

    To turn back the tides of war, Queen Mother sent her most trusted warriors on a perilous journey across the Great Sea. But the elves were betrayed by one of their own. Only a handful survived the ambush that followed, only two reached the far shores. But they did not find quick allies. They found a kingdom under siege and a shattered alliance. The elves proved themselves to the men that defended Quashan'.

    The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches books are a fantastic listen for any age. The narrator is wonderful - he does an amazing job catching personality in the various voices. I 100% recommend these books. It's an Excellent Fantasy with well developed characters and vividly described landscapes which will transport you to a time that you'll almost believe happened!

    Book Four is a great conclusion to a great story. As I was listening, I was also thinking that this would be a great listen for a family road trip. I've read the book and listened to this audio twice and have found that time just slips away while reading or listening. If you're going to start the series, start with Book One - its well worth the journey.

    I read this because I like to read what my kids read, and didn't expect to like it, but it's excellent! It's unbelievable to think that at just 14 years of age, JR King could write a novel of this depth and expansive visualization. Ron Knowles does a wonderful job of reading the book and bringing all of the characters to life. The voice of Digorence the gnome will stay with you long after the book is done.

    A great read for young and young at heart alike. I can't wait to get to the 2nd book!
