    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

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    The author's CIA experience really made this novel feel so real. The plot was very complex, the details were very vivid, and I could not put it down.
    The fact that he also included recipes at the end of each chapter, that was a very unique addition.

    Alone and on the run, betrayed at every turn, Jenna's path takes her from sun-drenched Key West to the alligator-infested Everglades, the streets of Miami, and the Caribbean islands. Along the way brutal criminals, deadly assassins, and the forces of nature conspire to end her life unless she can rise to embrace an impossible destiny and unleash her own lethal potential. Everything Jenna has been told about herself is a lie, and the truth is a secret that may destroy the world--or save it.

    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.

    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.
