    This unique book presents startling new evidence to suggest that there is a very real and breathtaking secret hidden within the structure of the now legendary Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland. Some say that Rosslyn Chapel is a simple place of worship, others that it holds the secrets of the Knights Templar and esoteric mystery persistently surrounds this enigmatic place.

    Story

    I don't want this to sound negative, because I did enjoy it and found the information very interesting. But the description is misleading. It says, "uncovering the hidden world of the knights templar" well, I don't recall him mentioning the knights at all. If he did I missed it. It is all about the Rosslyn Capel.

    I did not notice the length until after I downloaded it. It is less then an hour long. I would call this a speech more then a book. It reminded me of an interveiw, but where the person would be asking a question there was music. Music, then he would talk, starting with "I think.." Like they took the audio from an interview and took out the host.

    I do think he did a good job narrating. I enjoyed his voice and liked the information.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

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

    I haven't read the printed version.


    What other book might you compare Hounded to and why?

    The types of characters are similar to the twilight books, werewolves and vampires but it added druids, demons, gods and goddesses. The characters are more interesting in my opinion then the twilight characters. I loved the use of the dog as a main character along with his dialog.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard him before but I enjoyed his reading. He suited the character very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen at work so I have to stop often. I like taking breaks so I can mill over the events and build expectation of what might happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the way the fight scenes were written. I have read other books where I became completely lost in what was happening. But I was able to follow the action very well in this book.

    The great pyramids of Giza have intrigued humanity for thousands of years. Questions about the construction and the purpose of these majestic monuments have existed since the middle period of ancient Egyptian civilization; in the sixth century B.C., Herodotus was the first of generations of explorers to travel to Egypt in an attempt to unlock their secrets. Recent cutting-edge research has uncovered information, unimaginable to previous generations, about how and why they were built.

    Wow, so much information! Going through the lines of rulers and the tombs and monuments through out Egypt. Full of current discoveries as well as past findings. Putting them together for a full picture of the history. I enjoyed this book but will need to listen again to get a better understanding.

    Do you reject both evolution and creationism? The product of 30 years of intensive research, The Twelfth Planet argues persuasively that humanity sprang from extraterrestrial forebears.

    Very interesting. I can't say I agree with the theories set forth but I enjoyed the book quite a bit.

    This is the first English translation of a portion of Historia Antigua de Mexico, written originally in Spanish by celebrated Mexican historian Mariano Veytia. He relates the history, astronomy, and religious practices he discovered from the charts, diagrams, and paintings of the Native Americans. In addition, he presents an account of America'a first settlers, who left from the biblical Tower of Babel at the time of the confusion of tongues.

  • Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilization

    Using tools as varied as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths, author Graham Hancock presents a compelling case to suggest that the story of mankind is far older than we have previously believed. And as the truth about prehistory and the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments is revealed, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us: a terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth at irregular intervals of time may be about to occur.

    Roger says: "Too short"
    "Excellent!!!"

    I really enjoyed this book. I have listened twice so far. There is allot of info in there. It puts forth some interesting therories and gets you thinking.
