    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    Overall

    Althougth I had some tough time getting used to the British accent of the female narrarator, I liked(once again) Rick Riordan's idea of combining ancient Egypt, fantasy, and the modern world altogether. However, I think that this story was too familiar to Percy Jackson. And it would have been better if the characters were more, what should I say? ummm... strong and special in some way.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Less violent and thrilling"
    Overall

    If you want to listen to an audio book that is less violent, thrilling, and scary than Dan Brown's other books, this audio book is the one I would recommend to you. I am not saying that Dan Brown has lost all his writing magic, but I am saying that Dan Brown has changed his style of writing. Although you could expect the whold story just by listening the first part, the story was very good.

    After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own.... In a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

    Matthew says: "Great Book, The Narrator Was Alright"
    "Percy Jackson gets kidnapped! Highly recommended"
    Overall

    I love Rick Riordan's books! They combine fantasy, history, ancient mytholigy, and the modern world altogether! Although I got dissapointed at the fact that dear old Percy has not appeared on this book, Jason's replacement was good enough! Fine, I had some trouble getting used to the new voices and the new narrator. But they were still GREAT. I can't wait until the second book comes out.

But dark threats loom just beyond the forest, preying on one cat‘s hidden jealousy and threatening the future of ThunderClan. Three ThunderClan cats, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw, are prophesied to hold the power of the stars in their paws.

    Overall

    I have read/listened the whole Warrior Cats series and found it interesting. However, in this book, things have changed a bit. The story is always the same and the characters in this book are too proud to admit defeat. And that's BORING. I mean, come on. Who would want to listen to an audio book about wild cats fussing over tiny problems ALL the time. This story can really interest you at first, but you would get tired of it in a few hours.

    What would happen if you discovered that your family was one of the most powerful in human history? What if you were told that the source of the family's power was hidden around the world, in the form of 39 Clues? What if you were given a choice - take a million dollars and walk away...or get the first Clue? If you're Amy and Dan Cahill, you take the Clue - and begin a very dangerous race.

    Nate says: "Mysterious and thrilling"
    "Not Bad but Not Good"
    Overall

    I have expected this book to be exciting and fun just as much as the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles. However, it seems that I was wrong. I am not saying that this book is that bad, but it's just that it's not a book that can be compared to Rick Riordan's other books. This is not thrilling and also not exciting . However, I really liked the idea of the characters, finding out the clues by following Benjamin Franklin.
    If you really want to listen to an audio book that you would not regret, I recommend you the Kane Chronicles and the Warrior Cats.

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Teddy says: "Fun KIDS Book"
    "Pretty good"
    Overall

    I started to get interested in the Percy Jackson series after I first saw the movie. The movie was pretty good so I wondered what it would be like to listen to it in audiobooks. After listening to it, I realized that the Percy Jackson series is so fun, that I am now a big fan of Rick Riordan! I have listened and read the whole Percy Jackson series and now is planning to listen to the 39 Clues series and the Kane Chronicles.
