Together, they travel with their people on a pair of flying ships in hopes of finding a new home for their colony. Moon finally feels like he’s found a tribe where he belongs. But when the travelers reach the ancestral home of Indigo Cloud, shrouded within the trunk of a mountain-sized tree, they discover a blight infecting its core.

    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

    Much to much swearing for my tastes but story content wasn't bad. I won't buy another of these books. Some of you will like it I'm sure, it's just not my speed. The narration was excellent though.

    All By My Selves is comedy superstar Jeff Dunham's story as told by Jeff himself! This unique comedic audio release takes fans behind the curtain to explain how he turned a tired, vaudevillian art form into something truly modern and hip. Not only will Jeff reveal how he developed his act and lovable characters over the years, he'll also share the details of his life as working comedian and family man on the road.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Story

    Yes, I know, the language is most of what makes this 'funny' and having raised NINE children of my own I can't say I haven't felt somewhat on his line myself when worn to a frazzle at the end of a day. Still.... Only reason I gave a little lower rating is expressly because of the fluent 'F' word. Otherwise well done !

    Nora Kelly, a young archaeologist in Santa Fe, receives a letter written 16 years ago, yet mysteriously mailed only recently. In it her father, long believed dead, hints at a fantastic discovery that will make him famous and rich - the lost city of an ancient civilization that suddenly vanished a thousand years ago. Now Nora is leading an expedition into a harsh, remote corner of Utah's canyon country, but what she unearths will be the newest of horrors.

    Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators and he did great justice to this book as well. From the first I was captured by this book. I can't believe I waited this long to 'read' it. I got caught up elsewhere but I loved this book ! You won't regret using a credit for this one !

    I don't usually read books by Anne Rice because I'm not much into vampire readings. THIS book is VERY good ! Excellent job with story line as well as an extremely good narrator. Hard to put down so to speak but Ron McLarty had me listening well into the night. Would love to hear more of this story.

    Moon has spent his life hiding what he is - a shape-shifter able to transform himself into a winged creature of flight. An orphan with only vague memories of his own kind, Moon tries to fit in among the tribes of his river valley, with mixed success. Just as Moon is once again cast out by his adopted tribe, he discovers a shape-shifter like himself... someone who seems to know exactly what he is, who promises that Moon will be welcomed into his community.

    The story of Moon and his search for his own kind is very well done and quite interesting. Definately worth the credit and of course I HAD to get the sequel ! Martha Wells is a great writer ! The narrator Christopher Kipiniak has a very good voice to listen to and tells the story extremely well.

    Would you consider the audio edition of By the Light of the Moon to be better than the print version?

    Yes, narrator made the book better.


    What other book might you compare By the Light of the Moon to and why?

    Everything Dean Koontz writes is good, so far.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Lang – was your favorite?

    Wow, liked them ALL !


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme, unless biting your fingernails waiting to hear how it's going to end. Lol


    Any additional comments?

    Audible has proven to be my favorite place to get my books to 'read' because I I sew and draw to the books.

    Oaths sworn . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide. Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

    A User says: "Good but not complete."
    "Third Book"
    Overall

    I found this whole series enchanting as well as wonderful to listen to. Brisingr was a bit slow at times but well worth the intro to the rest of the story. Wish the movie had done the original book Eragon justice. Can't wait for Paolini to either continue Eragon's adventures with his beloved dragon or start another series equally as fun. What a fun series. Well worth the credits and time !
