    The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting, and bloody confrontations with ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen’s rule remains absolute, enforced by her dreaded Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, their lone surviving mage, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities, yet holds out.

    An amazingly constructed world, filled with magic, mayhem and great characters. The only issue I have is that the author details things rather oddly. Sometimes the book feels like a history book to another world(which is kinda cool but rather dry). Other times he flashes from place to place explaining almost nothing until you have no idea what's actually going on.

    I'd recommend two listens if your going to go on with the series.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    I was hesitant to pick this one up at first because it wasn't typical fantasy. I finally caved and I'm glad I did. It's an awesome take on the superhero genera. With plenty of action and great characters.

    Can't wait for the next book.

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    This is another one of those Romance novels that could easily carry it's weight in another Genera. It's has enough depth of plot, story, and character development to stand on it's own. Add that to the steamy scenes and it's an awesome book.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    This had to be one of the most interesting books I've read. Writing an epic fantasy is a huge undertaking and Sanderson did a fantastic job. All of the characters are well defined, each with their own personalities and quirks. The world he build is simply fantastic and he pulls it all together with great writing.

    One of the best books I've ever Listened to. Kate reading isn't my favorite narrator, even she couldn't put a damper on how amazing this book is.
