    Everyone knows the story-how Arthur pulled the sword from the stone, how Camelot came to be, and about the power struggles that ultimately destroyed Arthur's dreams. But what of the time before Arthur and the forces that created him?

    What did you love best about The Skystone?

    I didn't want to hear just another Arthur story. This is a Roman to Britain transitional story. I very much enjoyed the flow of the story. I enjoyed the historical detail. When places and buildings are described I recognized them from accounts of archeological diggings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flow and it's ties to historical accounts and legends.


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

    I love Kevin's performance. All of his performances are his best!

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

    Story

    Taylor Anderson's highly imaginative story/series is made even more exciting and entertaining by William Dufris's interruptive reading. This genre of alternate earth is a tough one to keep fresh. With thrilling action, despicable villains, humorous situations, lovable characters and plot twists keeps this book/series moving along. William Dufris's imaginative character/creature voices puts this reading experience on a higher plain. I often find myself taken into the action or chuckling to a situation. I look forward to each book.

    When Clementine Kaye, archivist Beecher White's first childhood crush, shows up at the National Archives asking for his help, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the president of the United States privately reviews classified documents. They accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact - and find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder.

    Overall

    If you like dialogue where people are hard of hearing "wait, say that again" or refuse to pay attention to each other, and will argue that what they have just found out is what is really important and not the other guys discovery, you will love this book. I was intrigued with the History Channel's show in which Mr. Meltzer told the foundational story of the original spy ring. I was sadly left wanting by the book. On the other hand Scott Brick's performance was incredible! I sense he had a great time doing the narration. Mr. Brick's performance is animated as well as passionate. Truly the only reason I bothered to finish the book (other then I had paid for it) was Mr. Brick's performance. My opinion boils down to that I did not enjoy the literary strategy and techniques that Mr. Meltzer employed. I did get a kick out of the notion that a 72 year-old, blind in one eye guy did drives a blue mustang.

    The Ankh-Morpork Post Office is running like...well, not at all like a government office. The mail is delivered promptly. Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, former arch-swindler and confidence man, has exceeded all expectations - including his own. So it's somewhat disconcerting when Lord Vetinari summons Moist to the palace and asks, "Tell me, Mr. Lipwig, would you like to make some real money?"

    Jason says: "Another gem."
    "Amazing, yet again"
    Overall

    The fertile imagination of Terry Pratchett brought another side splitting story. The humor is fast paced and its worth a second listen to catch the one liners that you miss the first time.

    Stranded in a hellish alien desert, stripped of their strategic systems, quick reaction force and supporting arms, and carrying only a day's water ration, Marine Staff Sergeant Charlie Bass and his seven-man team faced a grim future 75 light-years from home.
