    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Story

    Every time there is a new book in this series it becomes the newest best one yet. The House of Hades is no exception. It is well-written and very entertaining. I have seen a lot of complaints about the narrator, Nick Chamian. I think he did a great job. My favorite narrator for these books was Jesse Bernstein, but Nick Chamian did a good job too. I recommend this audiobook for anyone.

    This series of books was a pleasant surprise. I had never heard of it, but I have enjoyed some books narrated by Jime Dale, so I took a chance. Jim Dale's talent at bringing audiobooks to life is obvious. The story is well-written and highly entertaining and is perfect for all ages.

    Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans.

    This is the best book in both Percy Jackson series, so far. I was really impressed with the direction it's taken, especially the way this one ended. I can't wait for the next one to be published. I will have to listen to this again in the mean time.

    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    Story

    This series is improving. I am biased a bit by the Percy Jackson and the olympians series, though. This series is told tag-team style by two very talented readers that tell the story from the main characters' point of view with enough enthusiasm to make you want to hear more. The Percy Jackson books were told from one main character's point of view using only one narrator, who is a very talented story teller. Overall, I would recommend this series to anyone.

    The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.

    This is a good book. I had never heard of this series before and decided to take a chance. It was worth the gamble. This is definately a good family-oriented fantasy series. Children of all ages will be entertained by this story and Allan Corduner does a fine job at telling it.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Story

    Christopher Paolini has ended the inheritance cycle extremely well. However, without spoiling it for others, it was a melancholy ending. Definately the best book in the series yet, even though I was hooked from book one. I would reccomend this book and series to one and all. Additionally, Gerard Doyle does an excellent job as narrator for this series.

    Come and hear the strange tail of The Boss Hank Morgan, a modern day (at the time of publication) Connecticut Yankee who inexplicably finds himself transported to the court of the legendary King Arthur (as the title of the book implies). Hank, or simply, The Boss, as he comes to be most frequently known, quickly uses his modern day knowledge and education to pass himself off as a great magician, to get himself out of all sorts of surprising, (and frequently amusing) situations, as well as to advance the technological and cultural status of the nation in which he finds himself.

    A User says: "Great Novel, Horrible Recording"
    "Might have been a good book"
    Overall

    This sounds like it was read by some guy sitting in his living room. Almost no voice inflection or excitement whatsoever in this audiobook. Don't buy this version at any price no matter how cheap.
