Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

    Overall

    I really wanted to like this book but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t. I love a good adventure but while this book has lots of events, it didn’t add up to an adventure. After thinking long and hard about why I couldn’t like the book, I realized that the characters were never developed. Stuff happens to them but we never find out who they are other than on a very superficial level. It was very much about how much bad stuff can we have happen to two teenagers but not much about who there are. Without this characterization, it’s hard to really care too much. I won’t be getting any more books in this series.

    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Irenehope says: "History-Mystery of the Year & its only March"
    "Very unusal historical fiction"
    Overall

    The concept of forensic science and a female doctor at the time of Henry II is hard to believe and when I first started listening to the book, I did so expecting very little. I was truly surprised at how well this was done and thoroughly enjoyed the book from both the story and the historic point of view. I will be continuing the series and hope to remain enthralled.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    "Beautiful Story"
    Overall

    This is a beautiful story, wonderfully written and beautifully read. While listening to this story I truly felt I was in a different time in a very different land. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Life in the Harper Hall is busy for best friends Kindan, Nonala, and Kelsa. As the only female apprentices, Nonala and Kelsa are the butt of jokes and easy targets for the bully Vaxoram and his cronies. But when Kindan springs to Kelsa's defense, he winds up in a fight for his life against the older, bigger Vaxoram - a fight that will lead to a surprising friendship. Then fate intervenes in the form of a virulent plague as fast-spreading as it is deadly.

    Amazon Customer says: "Disappointing"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was truly excited to try another Pern novel but this one is very disappointing. The story is depressing, no heart as in the other novels I have truly enjoyed. The characters have no depth, and the plot is often ridiculous with many hair brained ideas thrown in to try to hold the story together. I don’t often feel as though I wasted a credit but this is definitely the case. I suggest avoiding this book like the plague.
