    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I love the other books, but what happened to the war? This book read more like a romance book. If it was not for my love for the author I would of stopped the book after the second or third romance part. The book could of been much better without all of that. The underline story is good, but it is still missing a war.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Ringo again?

    without a dough


    Was Cally's War worth the listening time?

    Yes, and no. Yes because there are parts info that I am sure will be important later on the books. No, because I was more then ready for it to be over with.


    Any additional comments?

    Please let this be the last of this type War, and Cally love life. Oh, I hope that not a Cally's baby war in later books.

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    Brian says: "Know what sucks about this book?"
    "Some real gems here"
    Overall

    They just be short stories, but they are great reads. It gives a look at some of the other areas of the Dresden world that you could of only have gotten from buying other collection books. Now, all of those stories are in one book. The first being the first ever Dresden story ever written, that has now form it's way in to print for the readers. Makes for a fun read, and gives the fans an idea of how Harry & Murphy working relationship got started. The last story is the one a lot of us have been waiting on. A story from Murphy's point of view, and it is a real treat to see things in her eyes. I can tell you this, this book will have to wanting more. The are just going to have to wait till 2011 to more Harry Dresden.

    James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, crawled out of Hell, took bloody revenge for his girlfriend’s murder, and saved the world along the way. After that, what do you do for an encore? You take a lousy job tracking down monsters for money. It’s a depressing gig, but it pays for your beer and cigarettes. But in L.A., things can always get worse. Like when Lucifer comes to town to supervise his movie biography and drafts Stark as his bodyguard.

    Mike Naka says: "good enough for me to buy book 3"
    "The Sandman has come at last!!"
    Overall

    The second book of the Sandman Slim is filled with as many if not more twist and turns that will keep you plugged in till the end. Even after the book end it will you still wanting more.

    R.K. is a great storyteller and has a great way to keep you in the moment. This book picks up six months after the end of book 1. Giving you a feeling of picking up right where you left off from book one.Sandman is forced in to looking for answers to questions that he really does not want to know. Things are going to get bad, but is he ready?

    My only complaint about the book is that, I fear R.K. will take another year to write the next book. He has me chomping at the bit for more.

    Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he's still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.

    Kyle says: "Not an average book"
    "A "Coming of Age" book, for the misunderstood"
    Overall

    I say this because, I grow up feeling a bit outside of the norm. It is a bit of humor that I am a working Magician myself today, but that is nether here or there. The book tells of a young adult who himself feels like an outsider to life. The story grows as he finds friends like him, learns what love is and how it can feel in its lost. Wrapped up in the middle of this this he learns the would of Magicians, and how to become one himself. I do not try to kid anyone to say this is a young adult book. There is a bit of "adult" parts, but it is not over the top as some writers have done. (I would say it is close to the level Robert Patterson has used in some of his books.) There is lots of twist and turns in the book to keep you wanting more. Give it a try and you might surprise yourself.

    I will also say this. There better be more books to come. I want to read more about this world of Magicians.

    Dylan O'Connor, a gifted young artist, is attacked by a mysterious "doctor" and injected with a strange substance. He is told that he is now a carrier of something that will either kill him...or transform his life. Then he is told that he must flee before the doctor's enemies hunt him down. Stunned, disbelieving, Dylan is turned loose to run for his life - and straight into an adventure that will turn the next 24 hours into an odyssey of terror, mystery, and wondrous discovery.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Superb"
    "I different type of thriller."
    Overall

    Well Dean has written one more of his thrillers that are out of the norm. He drops hints through the book that make no scents at the time, but when they do. You will in for a real surprise. I liked the book, and I can only hope he writes more to this book, but do to the date the book was written I do not think he will. Again, this is Dean we are talking about. He just might.

    Unlock a new level of fear. It is well known among law enforcement personnel that murderers can be categorized on a scale of 25 levels of evil, from the naive opportunists starting out at Level 1 to the organized, premeditated torture-murderers who inhabit Level 25. What almost no one knows is that a new category of killer is in the process of being defined. Only one man belongs to this group. His targets: Anyone. His methods: Unlimited. His alias: Sqweegel. His classification: Level 26.

    Katie says: "People are being way too harsh..."
    "I very twisted look into a monster's mind"
    Overall

    This book has a lot of twist and turns. It will have you guessing at what could be next. I will point out there is some adult content in the book. If that is something you do not like, then I would not suggest this book to you.

    Plus, the web contexts on level26.com makes the book come alive. You get passwords that unlocks videos that add more to the book. You do not have to watch the videos, but it is a plus to the book.

    I really enjoyed the book, and I am looking forward to the next one.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Mike Naka says: "jack bauer + spawn = sandman slim"
    "I loved It!!!"
    Overall

    This was my type of book. A twist of magic and mystery. A real fun ride. "Richard, I want more Sandman Slim books!!"
