    Sir Merrick Hadrian hunts monsters, both human and supernatural. A Knight of the Order of the Round Table, his use of magick and the technologies of steam power have made him both respected and feared. But his considerable skills are useless in the face of his greatest challenge, guardianship of five unusual children. At a loss, Merrick enlists the aid of a governess....

    What did you love best about Steam and Sorcery?

    no pretty vampires


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    a good week-end book


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a good light read. NOT a hard core steampunck book, just a good book to have on in the background while doing the laundry, or house work.

    What did you like best about Ghost? What did you like least?

    I love the TROY Raising books. I will read (listen to them) once every two months or so.
    IF YOU ARE NOT INTO “the scene” YOU ARE GOING TO FIND THIS BOOK ABOUT 50% BORING. His missions are great, but his sex life…is Ringo trying to make me dislike the main character? If you can get passed the BDSM staff it is a good adventure.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeremy Arthur?

    Do you think Ghost needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Story

    A friend of mine told me to read this book, and I said sure I well. Two weeks later my friend asked if I had read it yet, and I told them next time I got the credits on my account. Finally they said,???Look, get the book if you do not like it (the book) I well pay for.??? So I got the book. It is a good book. I really did enjoy it. The book works into the historical time line well. Take out the vampires and it would be a good historical fiction, but coming originally from Chicago, seeing vampires in politics is nothing new. Nicely performed. I say, do not wait as long as I did to get the book, and if you do not like it I WILLNOT BUY IT FOR YOU.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Young Adult readers, the Adult Readers are reading this series too.
    The Series (all five books so far) is a great read. Humor, adventure, a love story, yes I enjoy them. Book four has two people reading it. I did not enjoy the narration but loved the story. I need to travel to New York City just see some of the places they talk about in the books.

    Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy. When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade - he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost.

    I really love the stories but sometimes the sex gets in the way. Do not get me wrong, I do like sex in books (sometimes and depending on the story), but I do not like it when sex is the only thing to drive the story.

    Ok a good story but the narrator has a voice better suited to a teen novel and not a character that is in her late twenties.

    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.

    I ask myself, if on a five hour delayed train trip would I want to be with the characters in this book. I say YES???big time yes. Jim Dale???s narration is spot on. The book is magic. There are parts of this book where I can smell the popcorn and taste the chocolate bats, see the ice flowers, and make a wish on the wishing tree. This is the book for the long nights ahead.
    Please if they make a movie of this book, let the art direction be done by Cirque du Soleil, and the director be Terry Gilliam
