    Genghis Khan was the greatest conqueror of all time, who, at his peak, ruled an empire that stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. His conquests are the stuff of legend, his tomb a forgotten mystery. Until now. A mysterious Mongolian harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of his ancestors, and holds a dark secret about Genghis Khan that just might give him the wealth and power to make that dream come true.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm relatively new to audio books, usually reading print and on kindle.

    This is a very good audiobook, it's long, suspenseful with lots of little cliffhangers (and a few big ones). The dialogue between the main characters is often witty and that keeps the story light and easy to listen to.

    The narration by Scott Brick is just awesome and i'm looking forward to listening to his other books. Since i'm new to audiobooks, i don't know if it's odd to seek out the narrator as much as the author...? :)



    What was one of the most memorable moments of Treasure of Khan?

    The two main characters being chased into the Gobi desert and their trek on foot through this desolate land.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Love it. He plays the various character voices very well, i will seek out some of his other narrations because i think his voice helps make the story in this format


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed out loud a couple of times :)

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    If you could sum up Ex-Heroes in three words, what would they be?

    Zombies versus Heroes!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ex-Heroes?

    The combat scene when the heroes were stranded in the city.


    What about Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s performance did you like?

    They took on many voices and did it well enough that i was captivated.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable story, i'm looking forward to listening to more in the series.

    It is 1907, a year of financial panic and labor unrest. Train wrecks, fires, and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad's Cascades express line and, desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency. Van Dorn sends in his best man, and Bell quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West, a man known as the Wrecker, who recruits accomplices from the down-and-out to attack the railroad, and then kills them afterward.

    What did you love best about The Wrecker?

    The two things i enjoyed the most about this Isaac Bell story is
    1)the compelling characters, especially the black hat and the white hat main characters
    2)the narration by Scott Brick. He sets the bar for others, i'm buying Clive Cussler stories as much for Mr.Brick's oratory skills as I am for the compelling storyline.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    My favorite character was Isaac Bell, of course. The hero!
