    Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book very much. I would much rather hear about it from someone that lived it than someone that just watched and then wrote about it. If I wanted a documentary, I'd watch the History Chanel.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    The storyline was Harry Dresden, the characters were all what they should have been, and yes, it was a given that Harry would not escape the Winter queens hold on him. But with all that I can say good about the book, it wasn't Harry Dresden. It wasn't Karen Murphy. It wasn't Molly Carpenter. Why? Because you changed the narrator. Why go for 13 books with Marsters creating all these personas in our minds and thens on the last book, nobody sounds like themselves. It was very distracting from the book. By the way, I hope that the series will continue for at least another couple of books with Harry as the Winter Knight. Possibly even tricking Mab into releasing him from being the Winter Knight. He's crossed wits with the Shee more than once and came out on top.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Story

    Christopher Paolini is extremely articulate in his books. I never thought that he went overboard with his descriptions. Nor did he follow the standards for story writing, you know, as in boy defeats evil wizard and gets girl. Because of his original thinking, his entire series of four books deserves some of the highest praise that can be attributed to a Fantasy author. His books rank right up there with Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Now if they could just do the movies correctly.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Story

    While the story and plotline were somewhat good, the narrator was breathing into the mike too much. It made me think that he wanted to be done with the book, that he was getting bored. The use of breathing can be used to punctuate the narration, but his was at times when the breathing did not fit the story line. The use of his magik was good and some was even original. All in all, the plot was descent. I might even listen to a second book, especially if someone different is narrating.
