    Young, pregnant Fawn Bluefield has just fled her family's farm to the city of Glassforge, where she encounters a patrol of the enigmatic soldier-sorcerers known as Lakewalkers. Fawn has heard stories about the Lakewalkers, who are wandering necromancers with no permanent homes and no possessions except the clothes they wear and the mysterious knives they carry. What she does not know is that the Lakewalkers are engaged in a perilous campaign against inhuman and immortal magical entities known as "malices".

    "Delightful Book"
    Overall

    This is my first book experience of anything written by Bujold. I'm not a big Romance novel fan, but I truly enjoyed how the book began with a shy, misguided, under appreciated farm girl who ran away from home to hide her poor judgement and shame. During her traveling adventure, she quickly came across fearful situations that brought forth fearless strengths and determination that quickly caught the interest of a living legend lake walker and malice slayer, named Dag. Absolutely lovely book, and I'm downloading Book 2 now, as I want to know what happens when Spark meets Dags' (the lakewalker) family and kin, and how their lives together will grow. Great book with just the right amount of romance, adventure, and peril, etc.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Curtis says: "Should be Section One, not Book One"
    "Parallel realities, a fantastic concept well done"
    Overall

    This book "Black", is the first of many I read by Ted Dekker. He's got a real nac for alternate realities like no other author. Intriguing story line snagged me from the get-go, so I had to listen to the next two books in this 3 book series. I highly recommend Ted Dekker for his orginality in unusual yet highly interesting story telling. Refreshing, new, and wonderful.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Overall

    Loved the Outlander book, and was looking for to reading another book by Diana Gabaldon. I picked up Dragonfly in Amber not knowing it was book 2 to Outlander. Fantastic suprise me. What really makes this book or series of books so delightful, is the narrator. The narrator has the accents down perfectly, and her voice springs the characters to life. Highly recommend this book to all.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Fantastic story with a little history inter-twined. I got really wrapped up with all the characters (good & bad), and just wish there was sequel to this book as I just wasn't ready for this story to end. Wonderful book!

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Overall

    When I first started this book, I thought the explicit detail into each characters internal belief, desire and motivation was a bit overboard and distracting. But, the thoroughness of the physchology into each character was of inestimable worth in understanding exactly what drives individuals into a socialist economic system - based on the premise that if capital voluntarily surrendered its ownership of the means of production to the state or the workers, unemployment and poverty would be abolished. However, this book explained exactly how prosperity is gained, shared and lost within a capital economic system Vs an alternative. And, after listening to this book, I've learned to better appreciate the United States' capitalism economic system. This book also strengthen my abhor to an alternative economic system. Great book!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Overall

    A must read for those with an interest in adventure, love, misfortune, cultures, survival and real life situations described at it's best and worst. I not only heard each word of this book, it left a heart felt connection with the characters in this book. I laughed, I cried, and could stop listening to the book. I became an instant fan of this Khaled Hosseini. Outstanding, incredibly wonderful book!!

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    Tony Deleeuw says: "Great Series, Great Readers"

    Overall

    Wow! What a book! Jordan develops his characters in the greatest of details, and the sheer volume of characters added throughout the story creates an intellectually intriging adventure with plots that twist and turn into subplots of subplots. I just down loaded book 3 to the Wheel of Time series, as books 1 and 2 have gotten me all wrapped-up in this exciting tale and looking forward to more, much more....I'm hooked.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Greg says: "This Series Rocks"
    "Wonderful Book"
    Overall

    This is the first book I've read by Robert Jordan. The author includes the taste, the feel, the emotion, the color, the texture, the detail of characters, places, and environments. Twist and turns all along the way. The readers Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are fantastic. Especially Michael Kramer, wow, he amazingly sounds different for each character, and makes it real easy to reconginize each characters unique voice and Kramer keeps it all straight. Kate is good too, but I prefer Kramer, possibly because he read most the book. I just downloaded book two, and noticed that a few of the books in this series is not in an audible format. Not good at all. Hopefully, this will get remedied real soon.
