    Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect’s assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody - he has a life he loves that he won’t give up no matter who is after him. But Jory’s life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw. While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective....

    Would you listen to Matter of Time: Vol. 1 again? Why?

    Yes. This is Mary Calmes at her best. This is my favorite book series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jory Keys. He's flawed snarky snotty and totally perfect. I also love Sam Caged, he's an alpha male who's flawed and out of his element when he meets Jory.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No not at all. Jory is a 22 year old flighty free spirit. Paul Morey is to old to be the voice of Jory. Sam is an alpha male who is totally hot and hotheaded. The voice just doesn't match the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The the end


    Any additional comments?

    New narrator for volume 2. Maybe Robert Nieman or Max Miller.

  • Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a talent for guiding readers through the mysteries of outer space with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. This collection of his essays from Natural History magazine explores a myriad of cosmic topics. Tyson introduces us to the physics of black holes by explaining what would happen to our bodies if we fell into one; he also examines the needless friction between science and religion, and notes Earth's status as "an insignificantly small speck in the cosmos".

    Story

    For me this book was amazing, it was presented in a chronological format covering the evolution of human thought and discovery about the planet we live on and the heavens above it, the physical laws that governs it all and the conflicts that have resulted between science and religion. It has been written in a way that allows the reader to move easily from the simple to the complex and from the smallest to the largest while tying the knots that bind them all together in what we know as our universe.
    Never before have I been so captivated, cover to cover, to learn more about how it all works and what the future holds for "everything".
    This book, in my mind, is a must for anyone who loves science, has knowledge about a lot of space related parts and pieces but could never put that accumulated knowledge together in a way that was understandable. The book will lay a foundation for the reader to build upon to further his or her knowledge of many astrological issues.
    VERY ENJOYABLE !!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    This is a fast paced book. Although it is written in the first person, which can be annoying for me at times, the story moved quickly. I did not want this story to end. The characters
    were were very well defined. Carolyn McCormicks narration was excellent. I could see the action.
