    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    "Needs to pick up the pace"
    Overall

    This book at first struck me as having gratuitous sex and vulgarity. And it's a lot more graphic than is necessary. And the pacing is rather slow. But, it has an intresting plot and subplots. Layers of intrigue and deception that make it rather addictive. I just wish it would hurry up a little and reduce the sex scenes. Overall, I liked it.

  • Death Bang Sexy

    Who did kill Rubber Janice? When Reggie Salvadore is hired to bust an apparently innocent man out of jail, it sets off a violent and bloody chain of events. Death Bang Sexy is a comedy thriller, groaning with unexpected twists and turns, and set in the crude and seedy "Wild West" that was North London in 1978.

    Then, you'd probably like this. It's clever, quick, and fun. I bought this instead of using my credits and I thought it was definitely worth it.

    Amelia Peabody embarks on her first Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal for her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella. On her way, she rescues Evelyn Barton-Forbes, who has been "ruined" and abandoned on the streets of Rome by her lover. With a typical disregard for convention, Amelia promptly hires her fellow countrywoman as a companion and takes her to Cairo, where strange visitations and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn.

    Todd says: "Outstanding!"
    "A fun book"
    Overall

    This book is more an adventure than a mystery, and that suits me fine. It's fun and entertaining. The characters are charming, even Emerson. It's a real joy to listen to on the drive home.

    I've heard both O'Mally and Rosenblat, and I prefer O'Mally over Rosenblat. O'Mally can create voices for various characters that you forget it's one person reading this. Rosenblat has a voice that makes everyone sound like a 50 year old female smoker.

    Former pirate Thomas Marlowe is now a man of property, farming his prosperous tobacco plantation in Virginia. But the Anglo-Spanish war has meant a decline in tobacco prices, and Thomas decides to come to England to trade his wares, little thinking that in the busy streets of London he would meet an old enemy from his pirating days.

    James Shinners says: "A Great Swashbuckling Read"
    "This'll buckle your swash, Matey......"
    Overall

    WOW! This book is great! It's filled with adventure, excitement and a dash of romance that isn't overly soppy. The swordplay is descriptive and realistic, and uses words and descriptions that many a fencer will recognize. The villans are dasterdly, the heroes are tenacious, the locale is breathtaking. The characters are vibrant and intresting. Listening to this book made my commute feel like I was 7 years old and riding the Pirates of the Carribean. I highly recommend this book.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Nonstop action"
    Overall

    Wow! What a fun book! It was kind of like a modern day Indiana Jones adventure. Filled with suprises and turns, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. It sure made a lengthy commute more enjoyable.

    It plays on christian mythology without being too religous. And some of the points it brings up, seem valid. Like many good stories it mixes a little reality with fantasy. So, as long as you remember that this book is just a story and not suggesting it is "reality" you should be okay.
