    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oliver Wyman is perfect for this book. This is an outstanding performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love this entire series, and the way that Larry Correia writes it. This latest addition is no exception, and is everything I had hoped for as an addition to the series.

    Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade. The Magi are hell-bent on ruling this new world, and for the last two Moontides they have led armies across the bridge on "crusades of conquest". Now, the third Moontide is almost here, and this time the people of the East are ready for a fight... but it is three seemingly ordinary people that will decide the fate of the world.

    It's always hard getting into a new series of this stature, but this was well done. I enjoyed the character development, and by the end I was already adding the second book to my cart.

    Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

    AudioBookReviewer says: "If you loved Steelheart you will love Firefight!"
    "Brandon Sanderson Never Disappoints!"

    As with all his books, I was engaged immediately and couldn't turn it off until it was done.

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    If you could sum up Towers of Midnight in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely F*!%ing Brilliant!!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Yes. Perrin is the most like me, Mat is who I want to be like the most, and Rand is a close second, on both counts!


    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    I have loved husband and wife team Michael Kramer and Kate Reading since reading the very first book of The Wheel of Time, and was extremely pleased that they were in on the last few finished by Brandon Sanderson. It is my opinion that none could do this duet better!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Wield The One Power!


    Any additional comments?

    No other Epic Fantasy series, or author(s) for that matter, could put this together. I recommend this read (the entire series) to every reader I know, just because of how vast and encompassing it is. Absolutely ridiculous. You should try it, starting with Eye of The World.
