    Sparhawk, the Pandion Knight and Queen's Champion, returns from a long spell of exile to find his native land overrun with evil and intrigue, and his young Queen grievously ill. Indeed, Ehlana lies magically entombed within a block of crystal, doomed to die unless a cure can be found within a year.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "Quirky pronunciations but overall a worthy job."
    "A book to make you laugh & cry outloud!!!"

    I've lost coun't how many time I've read this book. Now the pleasure of listening. David Eddings brings his stories to life, with love. Sit back & enjoy this rolcking tale... but beware this is only book one!!! David does love his cliff hangers!!!

  • The Abyss Beyond Dreams: Chronicle of the Fallers, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (22 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Peter F. Hamilton
    • Narrated By John Lee

    The year is 3326. Nigel Sheldon, one of the founders of the Commonwealth, receives a visit from the Raiel - self-appointed guardians of the Void, the enigmatic construct at the core of the galaxy that threatens the existence of all that lives. The Raiel convince Nigel to participate in a desperate scheme to infiltrate the Void. Once inside, Nigel discovers that humans are not the only life-forms to have been sucked into the Void. The humans trapped there are afflicted by an alien species of biological mimics.

    C. Hartmann says: "Intersection of the Void and Commonwealth - Super"
    "Really enjoyed my trip back to the void"

    It was as I hope a darn good tale from the void.
    Love this narrator too.
    Best read the other books first however.

  • War of Honor: Honor Harrington, Book 10

    • UNABRIDGED (36 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By David Weber
    • Narrated By Allyson Johnson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn't. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

    Aaron Sher says: "Oh my God, it's slow!"
    "Trapped in the Honorverse and loving it!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to War of Honor the most enjoyable?

    What can I say... I'm sold out to this story and it's many many books...
    As in most of the books there is something to like or dislike for everyone. Space battles, politics, tech etc. Each book will have more or less of what you like, but most folks love this series overall.

    What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?

    I at the point where Allyson's is the ONLY voice of my characters. Well done.

  • The Sapphire Rose: The Elenium, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By David Eddings
    • Narrated By Greg Abby

    Finally, the knight Sparhawk had come to possess Bhelliom, legendary jewel of magic that alone could save Queen Ehlana from the deadly poison that had felled her father. Sparhawk and Sephrenia, ageless instructor in Styric magics, made haste to free Ehlana from the crystalline cocoon that had preserved her life while they desperately sought a cure.

    Cliff says: "A great end to this trilogy"
    "What's not to love...."

    Pure enjoyment and escape. I loved the books, the the Audiobooks were no disapointment. Well spoken and presented. Reading Eddings works makes you laugh outloud at times and cry at others. This audiobook makes sure of it!!

  • Dune

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Frank Herbert
    • Narrated By Scott Brick, Orlagh Cassidy, Euan Morton, and others

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "Best 1 credit you will spend!!!"

    Talk about value 20+ hours and I loved every bit of it.
    Multiple voice actors & music bring this book to life. If you read this in your youth (like me) then it is time to revist. If you have never dived into this SCI-FI "must read" then this is the way!!! So much to enjoy!!
