    Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a 17-year-old human girl, he can’t seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he’s entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prizefighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.

    I selected this book because it was read by James Marsters and I wasn't disappointed, he reads beautifully and I didn't want to stop listening. Storyline was unique compared to other paranormal fantasy which made it even more enjoyable.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Mike Koch says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."

    Story

    I'm glad the story is over, it had become tiresome listening to moaning characters over and over, the story in its entirity (from the first book) is interesting but the ending was lack lustre.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Clinton says: "Not what I thought it was going to be."

    Story

    I could picture every moment, the clarity of picturing the unique environment created was stunning, the story moved a little too slowly for me and I'm not sure I will bother with part 2.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter International to be better than the print version?

    If I had a print copy to read, this wouldn't have last long, it makes a mean audio book. Oliver Wyman's narration is, with only the minor issue of making all the women characters sound like transvestites.

    If I was reading this book my eyes would have blurred and skipped over the long gun explanations and fight scenes, I can hear myself already "yeah yeah, big fight, but we know he's gonna win so lets skip to that", now this internal dialog is exactly why audiobooks are great, I really felt every blow and bullet and there was some actual dodging while listening.

    Overall an excellent listen, not quite Harry Dresden level (which to date is the best I've ever listened too), but worth purchasing.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Larry Correia? Why or why not?

    Yes, already bought part 2, I gotta know what happens.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    Earl Harbinger, he sounded unique to the others, an isolated difference.


    Any additional comments?

    It was great listening to with others, the storyline wasn't hard to pick up so I could turn this on in the car and it was enjoyed by all.
