    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Stephanie Harrington had always expected to be a forest ranger on her homeworld of Meyerdahl until her parents relocated to the frontier planet of Sphinx in the far distant Star Kingdom of Manticore. It should have been the perfect new home - a virgin wilderness full of new species of every sort, just waiting to be discovered. But Sphinx is a far more dangerous place than ultra-civilized Meyerdahl, and Stephanie's explorations come to a sudden halt when her parents lay down the law: no trips into the bush without adult supervision!

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

    It was with great pleasure that I stopped listening to this book 1/2 through. It was filled with teenage angst and little else not what I expected from Mr Weber


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Weber again?

    yes but not in this series


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    nothing


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I just wanted to shut it off

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"

    What disappointed you about Dead or Alive?

    I was after a good spy story but this had WAY to much polititical commentary that was in no way related to the the story, it just got to be way too distracting

    What disappointed you about Torch of Freedom?

    I have enjoyed many of webers books, but this one just goes on and on and on on political background and I could not keep any interest in it

    Story
    (2398)

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Aaron says: "No Roy Dotrice"
    "not bad, you have no choice"
    Overall

    my complaint is the reader, he is not bad in himself, but he could at least have listened to the previous books and used the same pronunciations. It detracts from the story to have to translate in my head when he uses different ones. That said you really need to hear this book to get to the next one so you have no choice
