    FitzChivalry Farseer has become firmly ensconced in the queen’s court. Along with his mentor, Chade, and the simpleminded yet strongly Skilled Thick, Fitz strives to aid Prince Dutiful on a quest that could secure peace with the Outislands - and win Dutiful the hand of the Narcheska Elliania. The Narcheska has set the prince an unfathomable task: to behead a dragon trapped in ice on the isle of Aslevjal. Yet not all the clans of the Outislands support their effort. Are there darker forces at work behind Elliana’s demand?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fool's Fate to be better than the print version?

    I can only listen to the audio and can't see how the printed book could be near as interesting as the well read audio


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fool's Fate?

    Too many to count the highs and lows were never far away


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    Mr Langton has a very professional voice and his ability to make the characters come alive give the book a read that is very pleasant to listen to.


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

    Again, Mr Hodd keeps the book moving with one part high and then a low followed by a high that makes so many secenes to pick just one.


    Any additional comments?

    I read these out of sequence, and look forward to the next set, with Tom finding his daughter, enjoyable reading

    For fifteen years FitzChivalry Farseer has lived in self-imposed exile, assumed to be dead by almost all who once cared about him. But now, into his isolated life, visitors begin to arrive: Fitz's mentor from his assassin days; a hedge-witch who foresees the return of a long-lost love; and the Fool, the former White Prophet, who beckons Fitz to fulfill his destiny. Then comes the summons he cannot ignore. Prince Dutiful, the young heir to the Farseer throne, has vanished.

    Until now there has not been a serious study of the rifle-armed regiments of the British Army that earned such renown in the Peninsular and Waterloo campaigns. Compiled by a former rifleman, Ray Cusick, who has written extensively on the subject, Wellington's Rifles examines the new rifle regiments, how they came about, their development and their actions.

    Would you listen to Wellington's Rifles again? Why?

    What other book might you compare Wellington's Rifles to and why?

    This book touches on stories in many other books but in a factual way to explain how and why it came about.


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Davies is a professional and I enjoyed his performance


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The book title is good

    Enjoyed the order of the history, it was alot of info that was fact not fiction, so it was alittle dry in some places but overall it was great

    In the late 18th century, it was widely thought that to be a sailor was little better than to be a slave. "No man will be a sailor," wrote Samuel Johnson, "who has contrivance enough to get himself into jail. A man in jail has more room, better food, and commonly better company." If that were true, historian Nathan Miller suggests, then the record of sailing in the age of tall ships would likely be distinguished by few heroes and fewer grand narratives.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Broadsides: The Age of Fighting Sail, 1775-1815 to be better than the print version?

    This book puts all the other stories into order and it helps you realize the other naval books of the time have a degree of truth.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broadsides: The Age of Fighting Sail, 1775-1815?

    I enjoyed many, I have read so many books that it all feel into place.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not just one, I have alot of scenes that happened in different parts of history


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

    Both, I could cry when the foolish govenments would treat the poor sailors very poorly, and be happier when they rewarded those who deserved it.


    Any additional comments?

    In history this wasnl't really that long, but the changes made to the world are still felt today. Steam ended these mens skilled talents and the world got alittle smaller.

    Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man. Sonny’s been in prison for a dozen years, nearly half his life. The inmates who seek out his uncanny abilities to soothe leave his cell feeling absolved. They don’t know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habit - or where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply of the drug. Or that he’s serving time for other peoples’ crimes. Sonny took the first steps toward addiction when his father took his own life rather than face exposure as a corrupt cop. Now Sonny is the seemingly malleable center of a whole infrastructure of corruption....

    The battle in the wharehouse with the shades was a battle royal, and kept me listening till I had to stop.
