    Getting to read about Paul Janson again, after so many years, was just exhilarating. Garrison did an outstanding job writing this novel, and I eagerly look forward to getting to read more about Janson in the future. I recommend this book to any old Ludlum fans, it is a great read.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    I started reading Sanderson after he was asked to finish writing the Wheel of Time series. I instantly fell in love with his work, and was quite excited to hear he signed his own deal for a personal epic fantasy series.

    This work was magnificent! One of the things I love most about Sanderson is his very creative and unique forms of magic. The magic in the Stormlight series s very solid and interesting.

    I would recommend this for any fantasy readers.

    Rollins is a master of the pen, but this book was just remarkable. There were multiple climactic plot lines, surprises. There was great information conveyed regarding the use of military war dogs, I really loved that aspect of this book.

    I fully recommend this book to any readers of the genre

    It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians - including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian!

    This second book moved the plot along very nicely, and really kept the listener captivated. My only complaint was in the altering of narrators, Wolf from book one did a much better job. She actually portrayed accents very well, providing more depth to the characters, sadly this new one does nothing of the sort.

    Jack McClure is no stranger to trouble. From his street-savvy education on the mean streets of Washington, DC, to his military service and operations with ATF and DoD, danger has never been too far away. But ever since Jack McClure saved the life of Alli Carson, the first daughter, he’s discovered a whole new breed of enemy. These heartless wielders of power do not make headlines. They strike fast and silent, and leave no trace, manipulating foreign affairs from the shadows.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Not being much of a vampire fan, I decided to read this book on a whim. Gladly, all of the reviews that declared how great it were, I fully agree with. I sat and listened to the entire book, with only a 3hr break to sleep a little. Someone had compared it to the Twilight Saga, and I also would say I believe it definitely can give it a run for its money.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Wanted Man to be better than the print version?

    Audio for me is better since being blind print books are worthless.


    Would you recommend A Wanted Man to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it for those who already enjoy Child's work, but not as a first time Child reading selection.


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

    The narrator is quite good, and I greatly enjoy listening to him.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series, but sadly Wanted just didn't have the same riveting plot I've come to expect from the author. It just seemed like he was putting out another novel, instead of really putting his all into it like prior books.
