    Grant Stevens, a mid-level manager for the Bureau of Reclamation, only wanted to build dams. He never imagined he would be swept into a desperate race against an environmental terrorist bent on restoring the Colorado River by blowing up the dams. Left temporarily in charge of the Bureau, Grant must react when the first dam is attacked. He faces the unthinkable task of mitigating the massive flood roaring down the Colorado.

    Where does Wet Desert rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was one of the most thought provoking novels I have read in a while.


    Any additional comments?

    I consider myself a conservationist and believe that most people that label themselves as evironmentalists are a bit on the radical side. I am a strong believer in being a good steward of the resources that God has given us. Now that you know where I am coming from I want you to know that I loved the book and it gave me a lot to think about. If you are an environmentalist you should read the book. If you are a conservationist you should read the book. If you care a lick about taking care of our world you should read the book!

    This book is not Al Gore end of the world preaching. It is not alarmist nor radical. But it is VERY thought provoking.

    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    Story

    I knew that the book was about a gay teenage hero and his struggles. I bought the book thinking that it would be interesting. I stopped listening when The POV was of a teenager viewing PORN. I do not want my money or my mind going to this crap. I am adamently anti-Porn and anything that promotes it will not get any of my money or time.

    Story

    Time Travel opens up a lot of questions and has been a main stay of science fiction. This book explores time choices and consequences. The story is fun but the questions of time makes it more interesting a deeper than other time travel books.

    I enjoyed the story but it was the time travel questions and thoughts that made the book worthwhile.

    Star Force is called to arms again! Outcast is a new beginning, the first book in a new spin-off series. Many peaceful years have passed since the Macro Wars ended. Most of those who fought against the heartless machines have aged - but not the ingenious artificial construct known as Marvin. His insatiable curiosity is as strong as ever, and he’s brought home fresh perils to humanity’s doorstep.

    This book feels like both a reboot and a sequel. It was enjoyable and opens an entirely new chapter in the Star Force Universe. I look forward to many more to come.

    A Fate of Dragons (Book 3 in the Sorcerer's Ring) takes us deeper into Thor's epic journey to becoming a warrior, as he journeys across the Sea of Fire to the dragon's Isle of Mist. An unforgiving place, home to the most elite warriors of the world, Thor's powers and abilities deepen as he trains. His friendships deepen, too, as they face adversities together, beyond what they could imagine. But as they find themselves up against unimaginable monsters. The Hundred quickly goes from training session to a matter of life or death. Not all will survive.

    What would have made A Fate of Dragons better?

    The fate of dragons would have been improved if the whole series felt more cohesive in the world building.


    What was most disappointing about Morgan Rice’s story?

    As part of a series this book seems to have no beginning or end. very unsatifying


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    THe narrator read the Title of the Book Wrong!!!!! He called it feast instead of fate.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Fate of Dragons?

    I would have made the whole dragon scene seem more "realistic". When readers suspend belief for a fantasy book the reader does not suspend common sense.

    Stretched to his limit, Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail. But when gods are involved.... Now, as attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about omens of death and destruction. Just old peasant legends about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should....

    Kyle Riggs has been away from Earth for a long time.... What’s happening back home? In Empire, the sixth book of the Star Force Series, the story moves in a new direction. Earth falls quiet, and the few reports coming out of the homeworld are increasingly strange. Isolated in the Eden system, Riggs realizes his enemies are forming an alliance against him. Crushed between two monstrous fleets, the last defenders of Star Force must forge their own alliance with the biotic aliens. But which alien race can Riggs truly trust?

    What did you like best about this story?

    It never slowed down.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

    The little robot marvin is funny insightful and a great addition to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recomend that this whole series be listened to. It is escapist, action packed fun. It could make a great movie series.
