    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.

    Justan was raised on the outskirts of the Dremaldrian Battle Academy. He watched his father ascend the ranks within the academy to become one of the most respected warriors in the kingdom. The only thing he has ever wanted is to become an academy student and follow the path of his father. Unfortunately, only the best can enter the academy and Justan is a horrible fighter. Everyone tells him that he is more suited to scholarly work than swordplay.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The title "Eye of the Moonrat" was originally somewhat off putting to me. I'm glad I jumped into this series!


    What about James Foster’s performance did you like?

    James Foster brings this novel to life. All the characters have interesting accents and dialect that suck you right into the world.

    To become a Dark Lord is no easy thing. The simple ambition to hold dominion over the world and bend all to your will sounds straightforward, but it's not. There are armies to raise, fortresses to build, heroes to defeat, and battles to be fought. After many spectacular failures, Evil decided to lend more than inspiration to these would-be tyrants. He wrote an easy-to-follow Dark Lord's Handbook. And yet the next Dark Lord that came along screwed up like all the others.

    A hilarious and original take on the classic adventure. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a little fun in their adventure story. The handbook also doles out outstanding advice to all of us fledgling Dark Lords! I am now ready to come forth!

    Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances. He fixes situations for people, often putting himself in deadly danger. His latest project is recovering a stolen necklace, which carries with it an ancient curse that may unleash a horde of Bengali demons. Jack is used to danger, but this time Gia's daughter Vicky is threatened. Can Jack overcome the curse of the yellow necklace and bring Vicky safely back home?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! The Repairman Jack series is outstanding!


    What other book might you compare The Tomb to and why?

    It is hard to find a book that compares to this. F. Paul Wilson has been accused of creating a new genre with the RJ series. "Strange/Weird Crime". or Supernatural Vigilante.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was ok. The narrator was a little too old sounding for the general overall novel. He made the characters sound like they were all in their 60's.


    Any additional comments?

    Repairman Jack is awesome!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    He is an excellent narrator. Everything comes to life.

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.

    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.
