    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    What did you love best about Gauntlgrym?

    Drizzt's is finally breaking with all the familiar trappings and coming to terms that all the old friends and loved ones he found at his side for aid and direction in life are going or gone and he must fine a new reason to live. Of course RS is handling this beautifully and leaves me with nothing but confident optimism and well as anticipation for what lies down the road for my favorite D&D based recurring hero. This books does a beautiful job of expressing the pain of having to move on from a chapter in your life yet transitioning wonderfully as the changing from 3.5 to 4.0 for Forgotton Realms leaves the world that Drizzt lives in ripe for new adventure.

    The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave listeners shaking their heads in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

    The culmination of this series hurts and yet feels so good. The powerful storm of events coming to a head is done masterfully and narrated with amazing skill.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    I loved going through all of this with Vin. Growing, losing, reaching new levels as the world she knows expands around her. The author not only creates an amazing world of mistlings and mistborn(super powered but far from invincible heros/villains) but a truly deep and realistic world for them to inhabit. The narrator does an amazing job of immersing you in it as well.

    The only complaint I have about this book is how fast the ride seemed to end! Once again the narrator brings to life an amazing book in such a way to surpass and enhance the original medium.

The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace?"

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

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

    Hilarious, Entertaining, Addicting!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Every Character is flushed and 3 dimensional(which is only showcased and made even more possiable by the incredible narrator's vocal talent and seemingly perfect realization of each different accent and vocal pattern.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    If you don't enjoy just about EVERY moment of dialogue with Oberon then you have no funnybone!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved every moment of it, this book was a perfect marriage of a deep and promising magic in the real world type book with a narrator who takes a great story and makes you feel like you are right there talking with the whole cast.

    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    What did you love best about Kiss the Dead?

    I've physically read every book up till this book and the book prior and while I honestly enjoyed the narrators depiction of Anita in the last book while she was away from home now that she is home with her menagerie of men...i want to throttle her(and not in a sexy rough way). She audibly rapes the listeners ears for over half the male cast(and all you long time readers know that the MALE cast has grown significantly). I particularly cringe like it's nails on a chalkboard every time she tries to use "her" Micah voice. She gave him this bad BAAAAAAD attempt at a woman trying to do a stereotypical Scottish accent and it pulled me out of the book like a high speed car impact every time he came into a scene. Love the series and if she's the narrator for the next one then I'm just going to go back to the paper version if I'm going to be able to enjoy it without pain again.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kimberly Alexis?

    ANYONE


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The best long term supernatural lover/killer is back and this time the threat is too close to home...it's bad narration!
