    Seventeen-year-old Lady Claire Trevelyan, left alone after the Arabian bubble financial disaster claims home and family, now leads the cleverest gang in the London underworld. Between outwitting a rival gang, inventing a device that will net her and her scientist employer worldwide fame, and keeping her mother from marrying her off, she can almost forget that a powerful lord wants to get closer…and if he succeeds, can destroy it all with a single word…

    Any additional comments?

    it was great. I thought it was going to be the steampunk version of Mean Girls but it was delightful. My only complaint is the brevity of the book. The author could have easily drawn out the book and I find it baffling that none of the other street gangs didn't bother her. but still a good solid read/listen.

    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.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I bought this book on a whim. This book was riveting, enthralling, and engaging beyond my expectation. I have not had a read this good in years.

  • Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

    Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.

    This book was gripping!!! I could not take my headphones off. The correlatives to modern life were astounding. Oh, it???s just another book about baseball! No. If this is your first thought then you missed the point. You missed the premise. The world is full of untapped knowledge waiting for the individual who is savvy and yet fearless. I love this book. I am rereading it again trying to think of subtle ways to bring these ideals to my line of work. Great book. Thanks for writing it!

    Standing on the cliffs of 12th-century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds. His enemy, the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith, has had over 2,000 years of experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into one of her own - including Hoyt's brother, Cian.

    Silke says: "Very enjoyable"
    "Same story diffrent time"
    Overall

    This is the same story as the Sign of Seven Trilogy. the narration is well done but the story is almost exactly the same. the sign of seven was a good story line but i didn't want to hear it again in a 14th century format. the concept had great promise but it was predictable once you have read the Sign of Seven Trilogy. I hope this helps
