    Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

    Would you listen to Beyond the Shadows again? Why?

    I have read the book, and then listened to the trilogy on audio. It is huge, story with a ton of depth.


    What other book might you compare Beyond the Shadows to and why?

    The first law trilogy by Joe Ambercrombie. Both are gritty fantasy with magical elements with a huge backdrop and deep characters.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Where does Ready Player One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the top. I routinely find myself wishing I was listening to it again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything. Especially the setting. You would be hard pressed to find a better executed setting than the Oasis of Ready Player One.

    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.

    What did you love best about 14?

    I started out not wanting to listen to it. I thought I didn't like it, and then I kept coming back to find out what happened next. Eventually I couldn't stop listening. I took a road trip just to finish it off.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    It is near the top. I really enjoyed it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of John Dies at the End?

    S**t Load's attack M.O. I was listening in my car and almost wrecked. I was laughing so hard, I couldn't see.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen R. Thorne – was your favorite?

    John is by far the best character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    John dies at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Jay Snyder. He really enjoys demonstrating how quickly he can read the written word. Khristine Hvam does a fine job with her performance, but cannot save this audio book from the nearly incomprehensible pace of Jay Snyder's narrative.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is actually quite fun, and actually a good time.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s performances?

    I will be very hesitant to try another audio book with Jay Snyder narrating. It would have to be a book I am very excited to listen to.


    Could you see Ex-Heroes being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Me. Playing every role. I am the only person awesome enough to play any of these characters.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrator. Everything comes to life.

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    If you could sum up The Blade Itself in three words, what would they be?

    What about Steven Pacey’s performance did you like?

    Steven Pacey makes every character come to life with his narration. He is well on par, and perhaps surpasses that of Roy Dotrice's Game of Thrones performances.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is excellent, and worth a listen. The characters are engrossing, rich, and very well imagines. The story is highly encompassing, and I found myself sucked in. I listened to the entire series in less than a week. I highly encourage any fan of fantasy to listen to the entire series. If nothing else but for Steven Pacey's performance.
