    The invaders are coming; the Posleen, a seemingly unstoppable horde who have conquered one star system after another, literally feeding on their conquests. Earth's dubious allies, the Darhel, have given the humans a number of highly-advanced technological devices, including a process for rejuvenating the aged, including trained and proven soldiers who otherwise would be too old to fight. Rejuvenation may give a critical edge, since to survive, the Earth must use every resource at hand.

    Story

    This book had plenty of action,i`m a big fan of the series,it was much better than i expected from some reviews.it doesn`t make an apology of the ss but describes the atrocities of war and heart wrenching decisions that must be made to save the most civilians.i found this book a bit more realistic with the really great tank battles! I also liked the main character an honorable old tank commander who will fight to the last and the hindowy tank engeeneer become fighter.

    In the twenty-second century, humanity has journeyed to the stars, and found them open for business. And when it comes to protecting that business, Chief Bridget Yang and Surge Team Sigma - her squad of heavily armed space marines - are up to the task. Unfortunately, Jamie Sturm is one problem they can’t just vaporize. When Jamie’s financial schemes bankrupt their expedition, Bridget and her crew refuse to let the rogue stock trader walk away.

    In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers....

    this is one of the rare book i could almost finish in one day but enjoy even more if not tired.One of the best combination of author and narrator,mark boyett does well the transition to a bit more serious story(friendship,courage,loyalty).I found it as good if not even better than star force.looking forward to the next book!

    Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

    Despite the negative reviews,we see quite a bit of a.x.l Pendergast.it is one the books i enjoyed the most from these authors and the narrator is really excellent,it would be nice to see him narrate more mystery stories.Corrie swanson is still rushing into danger but meets very interesting friends.the paralel between 1876 and present and the lost sherlock holmes story makes for a great book;one of their top 5 ,even better then ``Riptide`` and close to the ``reliquery`` in my opinion.

    Drizzt and Catti-brie have been away from Mithral Hall for six long years, but the pain of a lost companion still weighs heavily on their strong shoulders. Chasing pirates aboard Captain Deudermont's Sea Sprite is enough to draw their attention away from their grief. Then a mysterious castaway on an uncharted island sends them back to the very source of their pain, and into the clutches of a demon with vengeance on his mind.

    Drizzt Do’Urden has settled in the windswept towns of Icewind Dale. There, he encounters a young barbarian named Wulfgar, captured in a raid and made the ward of a grizzled dwarf name Bruenor. With Drizzt’s help, Wulfgar will grow from a feral child to a man with the heart of a dwarf, the instincts of a savage, and the soul of a hero. But it will take even more than that to defeat the demonic power of Crenshininbon, the fabled Crystal Shard.

    Story

    I picked up this book in paperback almost 20 years ago and it introduced me to the best epic story since i had read tolkien`s the lord of the ring.It is an early book by salvatore,a lot of action in one book ,i got hooked on these charaters anyway.If you`re new to these books you might want to start to start with the book Homeland and the subsequent novels who are really gems in fantasy literature.also the narrator is excellent with all the different voices and in the battle scenes.don`t miss this saga!

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.
