    "It's hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family, which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most."

    Story

    I think this series has wonderful plots, but the telling of the details too often repeats the SAME OLD THING! Way too much violet eyes, and grey eyes and heartbeats that count in increments of 10 get stale. Still, I do recommend it for passing the time. Not my favorite author by a long shot, but like I said the plots are just fun. So much potential to be exciting, but the repetitive phrases really bog down the forward motion of the story.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    If there was a complaint about Mr. Correia's books, then it would be "why can't they be longer and release a bit faster...however, you can't ask for a more enjoyable "kickass" story (series) that just make the miles and time fly by. Keep 'em coming Larry! Can't wait to see what happens with Franks. And "Z" is just AWESOME!!!!

    Story
    (1403)

    At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

    Story

    Enjoyed the conclusion to a great character...wish their could have been a Disney style ending. But this is Scott Card, and he can be as raw and moving in much more real ways...even in science fiction. Bean showed to be true to himself and those he loved, which moved me and kept the pace of the story moving along.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    I was elated to find that Jim Dale had narrated another book. Loved him doing all the Harry Potter Series, as well as Arthur and the Minimoys. This book however was a major let down. It took me nearly 4 days to listen to because I became soooo disinterested, which is saying something coming from a career truck driver and avid audible listener. Jim Dale wasn't up to his best, and although the premiss was great, there was way to much bouncing around from two different points in the past, while treating it as if it was the present without moving the story in a linear cohesive way. Really, when I forced myself to finish, I wanted my credit and the time spent listening to this book back. Not sure what others heard when they listened to this, but this is only my opinion. Take it for what it's worth.
