    Sorcerer Marla Mason, small-time guardian of the city of Felport, has a big problem. A rival is preparing a powerful spell that could end Marla's life - and, even worse, wreck her city. Marla's only chance of survival is to boost her powers with the Cornerstone, a magical artifact hidden somewhere in San Francisco. But when she arrives there, Marla finds that the quest isn't going to be quite as cut-and-dried as she expected...

    "an awesome story"
    Overall

    There are two types of reviewers that drive me insane. The firsttype are the ones who constantly complain about the character development, and the second type are those reviewers who complain about the narator. You will run into these complaints further down the list of this book's reviews. To answer the first complaint, the characters in this book have decent development. You don't know about their thoughts on the meening of life or their opinions about the social issues of the day, but they are developed enough to keep the story going. Not only was the character development good, the system of magic was extremely creative and well thought out. Now to answer the second complaint. I thought the narator did a good job with this book. I don't understand why people are so picky about every little flaw the narator might have. It seems to me that people should be happy with the fact that someone took time out of their day to read an audiobook for the blind. If no one narated these audiobooks, you would have to listen to a synthisized voice. If you thought this narator was bad, you should listen to a book narated by a synthisized voice. Overall, this book is a good read and I would reccomend this book to anyone.

    Throughout history - from the bone-crushing age of antiquity to the sack-tearing modern era - there have been larger-than-life ass-kickers with a natural talent for unleashing their epic bloodlust on anyone who crossed them. They built empires, smashed armies, and ravaged civilizations for wealth, glory, and ultimate supremacy. Sometimes villains, sometimes heroes, sometimes criminally insane, they had one thing in common: They were all Badass!

    "It's a historical comedy"
    Overall

    Really, the title and the discription of the book says it all. This book is history as told by a comedian. I personally think it's a nice change from the stuffy history books that I am used to. Some other reviewers complain that the humor is stupid and immiture. I admit that this humor is not for everyone,The author uses a lot of exageration comedy when it comes to talking about the people in this book. If you are in high school or college and want to read an interesting and funny history book, then this is the book for you.
