    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    The cast and crew of this piece made Zahn's book come alive, and I very much enjoyed it. The sound effects are jolting if you are expecting a quiet listen however, but I have to say it is well done.

    Finally , a book about someone other than Z ! This book is a wonderful story , about one of the most interesting characters in the MHI universe - Earl Harbinger. You don't need to have read the other MHI books to love this gem , and it is a galloping trip thru MHI history . Olvier Wyman does a first rate job with the material , and the story is fast paced and engaging.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck - not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong - are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam - out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife) - must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.

    Story

    The Vimes/City Watch story line has a lot of amazing stories , this sadly isn't one of them. The pacing feels forced , and it is just neither really funny nor engrossing . Stephen Briggs does his usual wonderful job with it , and it is still an order of magnitude better than Unseen Academicals . It isn't a bad story , just not up to the standards of most of the classic Discworld stories .

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Cold Days was a hard hitting a fun ride , without making spoilers happen I can say that it was great to hear James doing narration again , he brings the series alive . The book opens up Dresden's new life as Mab's enforcer and starts the ball rolling to the Apocalyptic Trilogy that's coming up. You'll get answers - but not the ones you want to many questions , and see a lot of long lost faces. Give it (and all the Dresden Files) a shot , you will be glad you did !

    I was very nervous that the reader wouldn't handle the Arabic well , but I was amazed and pleased with the reading , everything was handled with a fluidity that made me happy. Mr Davis kicked ass on this read , and I look forward to hearing the rest of the series. The book itself is a classic of the genre and it is wonderful to go to a non-splatterpunk cyberpunk millieu.

Follow them in Myth Conceptions, as Skeeve and Aahz test their talent when they decide to take on an entire army themselves and continue on in Myth Directions. Then Skeeve finds himself alone with his own apprentice applicant, a king, in Hit or Myth and must deal with a medieval Mob!

    Mr Levine has done a very good job of bringing this book , with it's host of oddball characters and puns to life , and a few nitpicky details aside I have to say he did an exemplary job. I was used to the original reader of the series , and it takes a little getting used to , but he has a great range and there is a lot of fun to be had here. Please give it a try !

    This book was really engaging even without the ghost story , with it it is an unforgettable read . Also if you have ever had to go through rehab after an accident , you will find this book VERY accurate and uplifting. I really found myself liking all the characters in this one and of course being rather horrified for them as it unfolded. It helped me get through stroke rehab , so I'm biased. Go read / hear this book.
