    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Patricia says: "Newest Sigma Force is a little off"
    "Had to return this."

    maybe


    Any additional comments?

    I tried to like this book, gave up and tried to just finish it, but I just can't can't - Despite the bit of melodrama, pseudoscience jargons I probably could've finish the listening due to the interesting plot, however the narrator is a different issue. I'm not sure how to describe except that he likes to increase his pitch every few words for no apparent reason. - its really weird and hard to describe- its like someone constantly getting excited for no reason - I would've rather an automated computer read it to be frank.

    More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings - merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

    Brandon says: "Beware of the chalk!"
    "One of the best book I read this year."

    If you could sum up The Rithmatist in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting. Mysterious. Intriguing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Has a Harry Potter feel to it but with a whole different story line and magic.


    What about Michael Kramer’s performance did you like?

    I can tell which character it is by his performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Its so good I wanted to savor it slowly.


    Any additional comments?

    Must read - probably my favorite from this author and that is saying a lot considering his many other great novels.
