  • The Poison King: The Life and Legend of Mithradates, Rome’s Deadliest Enemy

    A National Book Award finalist for this epic work, Adrienne Mayor delivers a gripping account of Mithradates, the ruthless visionary who began to challenge Rome’s power in 120 B.C. Machiavelli praised his military genius. Kings coveted his secret elixir against poison. Poets celebrated his victories, intrigues, and panache. But until now, no one has told the full story of his incredible life.

    "Ancient Roman history fans will REALLY enjoy this!"

    Truly interesting from beginning to end; I personally love gobbling up (any and all) information during this era. Mithridates is so interesting, I'm surprised this book has not come out sooner!

  • With Morning Comes Mistfall: Free Story

    Dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine, A Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is a giant in the field of fantasy literature and one of the most exciting storytellers of our time. Now he delivers a rare treat for listeners: a free story, “With Morning Comes Mistfall”, from his compendium of shorter works. Collected into three stunning volumes, his Dreamsongs collection offers fascinating insight into his journey from young writer to award-winning master.

    "Really Great Short Story But..."

    First of all you should know that I think GRRM is a genius and Claudia Black was superb as narrator(wish she had more audiobooks out) that said, it was hard for me to focus on this short story due to the fact that I could not get over one issue totally unrelated, that Mr Martin should be working on his Fire and Ice Series and not this touching story of mythic ice wraiths ;) yes I know its selfish

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 31 mins)

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    "Incredibly Interesting, AMAZING Narration"

    Great insight into our military! conservatives and liberals will rally behind this book. I really enjoyed Maddow's narration and wit. its 7hours 32minuets and 8second's of relevant American history,top secret facts, sharp humor and flawless narration. This is an easy one folks DRIFT IS A MUST
