    In Greek mythology there's a story of King Lykaonas of Arcadia and his 50 sons, who were cursed by the father of the gods, Zeus, to become wolves. The very first Lycanthropes. Forensic pathologist, Sophia Katsaros, receives a cryptic phone call from Greece, telling her that her brothers are missing, and leaves to search for them. With the help of Illyanna, her brother's girlfriend, Sophia examines the evidence but cannot accept a bizarre possibility: Has one or both of her brothers been transformed during the Lykaia, the ceremony where man is said to become wolf?

    Story

    This might have been a better listen if the 3 story lines had been separated. As it is, the stories are hard to follow, jumping between the story of the wolf queen, the child priest and the modern day mystery. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish the book and I don't know if it's the narrator or the actual story. The narrator is uninspired and the story is dragging, bogged down with too much detail.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    start of a new series. I'd love to hear more about Maggie and her pack. Enjoyed hearing from different view points. Great character development and a surprise ending I didn't see coming.

  • The First American: The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin

    Many consider Franklin the most fascinating American man who ever lived. A scientist, businessman, diplomat, author, inventor, philosopher and politician, he is America's original Renaissance man. His remarkable and varied accomplishments include the discovery of electricity and the modernization of the postal system. Brilliant and bawdy, a master statesman and a cultural icon, Franklin was so important and popular in his day that, according to the author, "... only Washington mattered as much."

    Story

    I couldn't get past the first hour. It was like listening to someone read a phone book. Disjointed and uninteresting. Half the time I didn't know who they were talking about or how they were related to Ben Franklin. Father, uncle, brother, friend??? Sorry I wasted my credit on this one.

    Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.

    Story

    Not much of a story, rather pointless. Sorry I listened to it. The best thing about the whole experience was the narrator, he did the best he could with the little he had to work with.
