    When Tudor explorers returned from the New World, they brought back a name out of half-forgotten Viking legend: skraylings. Red-sailed ships followed in the explorers’ wake, bringing Native American goods - and a skrayling ambassador – to London. But what do these seemingly magical beings really want in Elizabeth I’s capital? Mal Catlyn, a down-at-heel swordsman, is appointed to the ambassador’s bodyguard, but assassination attempts are the least of his problems.

    I will never be able to finish reading this book. For me I find the moral reality being promoted in this novel to be offensive. I made a mistake purchasing this book!

    Hundreds of years before the time of Imager, the continent of Lydar is fragmented. Years of war have consolidated five nations into three-Bovaria, Telaryn, and Antiago. Quaeryt is a scholar and friend of Bhayar, the young ruler of Telaryn. Worried about his future and the escalating intrigues in Solis, the capital city, Quaeryt persuades Bhayar to send him to Tilbor.

    Story

    Quaeryt, secretly an imager of questionable skill and a professed scholar persuades Bhayar, a school friend, and ruler to send him to Tilbor. Quaeryt has never received formal imager training as there is just trial an error if you want to keep it secret. This is in itself is a challenge, throw in the challenges of the journey a number of competing and powerful land owners with different perspectives on the future of Tilbor and a Governor of questionable character we have the makings for a great story. I absolutely enjoyed this book. The flow of the book is very much as a dialogue that makes one feel like we are there and listening first hand. The narration is excellent and bring out the characters personalities.

    Story

    There are story lines and sub plots, and intersecting and diverging relationships, challenging new worlds and conflicting ideologies that lead to war, advanced technologies and creatures with new talents. What more could you ask for in great SF Novel! All the pieces are here, great plot line and rich well developed characters, exceptional leadership and inept. The narration is outstanding. Read or listen to the first book if you have not already done so. Once I started listening to the book I couldn't stop. When does the next book hit the street?! Keep writing Kevin and Brian. Well done as usual Scott.

    It’s Gin Blanco's party - and you’ll cry if she wants you to. Against her better judgment, Gin is coerced into attending a high-society gala with the rest of Ashland's elite underworld. On display: the priceless art collection of her deceased nemesis, Mab Monroe, and an excess of crime-boss swagger. While not comfortable in her fancy attire, Gin gets vastly more interested in the evening’s events when a group of thieves bursts in and tries to seize the valuable, dangerous gems.

    Story

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and this book has continued this tradition. The Spider continues to be the consummate playing field leveler as she continues to negate the criminal influences in her town. This time It's lots of them and they are all giants who have caught the who's who at a party and they're all being robbed. They think they have killed the Spider - shame they didn't do a better job of confirming it. Faced with daunting odds after having avoided being killed - the question is can she win?
    The narration is excellent and Lauren does a great job of bringing the characters to life.
    Enjoy!

    Bounty hunter Morgan Bailey is still recouping from her latest vampire kill when she receives a new assignment: hunt down the sunwalker who stole a priceless amulet from a mysterious millionaire. Sunwalkers - vampires who are immune to sunlight - are notoriously difficult to find, let alone kill, but Morgan’s not worried. She’s never met a vampire she couldn’t dust. But when this particular sunwalker comes looking for her…well, all bets are off.

    This is a great twist on vampire stories. There are a lot of characters that are developed during this story and it seem just as you think you have figured out who's who things change. The story continues to develop right through to the end so you'll need to read the book. There is a good conclusion at the end and we're left wanting to read the next book.
    This is fantasy and romance novel but I enjoyed the story. I will read the next book.

    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Story

    As with all the books in this series, once started I couldn't put it down. What more could you ask for in a SF series than a reserve superhero who thumbs his nose at gods, elves, elementals, Witches, vampires, Dwarves, etc. He real doesn't seek confrontation but it just seems like as a result of having lived so long he has annoyed them and they want him dead. He's training an apprentice and she's no slouch. He's already a force to be reckoned with, what in the world will happen when there is two of them?

    Readers of I Am Number Four, The Maze Runner, and Legend will love this exciting new adventure series by the co-creator of the groundbreaking television show Twin Peaks, with its unique combination of mystery, heart-pounding action, and the supernatural. Will West is careful to live life under the radar. At his parents' insistence, he's made sure to get mediocre grades and to stay in the middle of the pack on his cross-country team. Then Will slips up, accidentally scoring off the charts on a nationwide exam.

    Now Will is being courted by an exclusive prep school...and followed by men driving black sedans.
