    Now that Septimus, Jenna, and Beetle are 14 years old, they have assumed larger roles in their Magykal world. Beetle is the Chief Hermetic Scribe of the Manuscriptorium and Jenna will soon be Queen, but Septimus is still battling the remnants of the Darke Domaine, which will remain until the power of the evil Two-Faced Ring is destroyed forever. To accomplish that, the ancient Alchemie Fyre must be relit - a task that sends Septimus to the very origins of Magyk and Physik.

    Inge says: "Should have been an epilogue to Darke"
    "A great end to a wonderful series"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fyre to be better than the print version?

    I always enjoy a well read book. The reader makes all the difference between enhancing the written word or just making it a chore to listen to the book. Mr. Doyle brings the characters to life with his performance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I truly enjoyed becoming reaquainted with characters that appeared in various books throughout the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one near the end with Septimus. I shall reveal no more!

    "Shoggoth’s Old Peculiar", a short story from Neil Gaiman's collection Smoke and Mirrors, follows an American student’s walking tour of the British coastline, which takes an odd turn when he comes to the town of Innsmouth.

    What did you love best about Shoggoth's Old Peculiar: A Free Short Story by Neil Gaiman, Plus a Preview of The Ocean at the End of the Lane?

    I loved the short story. By the time I listened to this, I had already listened to The Ocean at the end of the Lane and focused only on Shoggoth's Old Peculiar. Mr. Gaiman has a great talent as a writer of the odd and quirky - possibly " a British thing?" He is also exceptionally talented as a performer of his pieces. His stories have a way of making you feel like you are there with the characters and that you can see,smell,taste, and feel what's happening .


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shoggoth's Old Peculiar: A Free Short Story by Neil Gaiman, Plus a Preview of The Ocean at the End of the Lane?

    This book challenged my vocabulary and made me stop to look up the word batrachian. Look it up yourself if you don't know what it means.


    What about Neil Gaiman’s performance did you like?

    He can capture the flavor of each character with his vocal performance.


    If you could rename Shoggoth's Old Peculiar: A Free Short Story by Neil Gaiman, Plus a Preview of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, what would you call it?

    Shoggoth's Old Peculiar a Neil Gaiman Short Story ( featuring a preview of The Ocean at the End of the Lane)

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Teddy says: "I hate it when this happens"
    "There are no fairy tale endings in dystopia"

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

    If you have enjoyed the series, you should listen to it. Make your own decisions about the story without looking at others reviews before finishing the book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    After the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, I was hoping Ms. Roth would have an more optimistic ending to her series. Near-and-dear characters dying - no matter how nobly - is a bit gut-wrenching.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford – was your favorite?

    Tris was my favorite character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I did enjoy the epilogue. As always, life goes on even when we lose those we love. We make adjustments, live with the memories and try to honor those we love with our lives.
