    When the Rho Project’s lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project’s alien technologies is finally over.

    This audio was a very good listen. A lot of technical stuff, but not to much. I like tech stuff. Very little profanity. I thought that this one was the best of the three.

    I couldn't do it.This started out as one of the most boring starts of a book that I have heard in a long time. Add in the profanity class.... I could not take it. If you enjoy profanity just for the sake of hearing it and dont mind long political intrigue, to get things started. Then this may be for you.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Story

    Well done, but.... Even though it does well as a side story that does well in filling in knowledge of the over all story, I felt it had a little to much profanity for a story about mostly young people. I realize some of them had lives that hardened them but I still felt the level of profanity was high. Other then that it was a good story that was well read.

    At 17, Claire Trevelyan, daughter of Viscount St. Ives, was expected to do nothing more than pour an elegant cup of tea, sew a fine seam, and catch a rich husband. Unfortunately, Claire's talents lie not in the ballroom, but in the chemistry lab, where things have a regrettable habit of blowing up. When her father gambles the estate on the combustion engine and loses, Claire finds herself down and out on the mean streets of London. But being a young woman of resources and intellect, she turns fortune on its head. It's not long before a new leader rises in the underworld, known only as the Lady of Devices...

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Story

    This is book two of this series and it was written and read as well as the first book, but in the first book the focus was on the story and in the second we seem a bit more focused on the sexual lives of the characters and addition of more profanity. Maybe the writer thought that would spice the story up. Throwing refuse in a well made dish does not make the dish taste better.

    I enjoyed the story line and the details of whats going on. The narration was very good. I enjoyed Allysons voice. but! the profanity level was to high for my liking. If you like military sci-fi, then you will like this one, but if you have a low profanity level, then you will need to pass this one up.

    In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes - and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern 20th-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective.

    This was very good. This is the first time I have listened to a writing from Laurie King or narration from Jenny Sterlin. I enjoyed them both. This is a good example of a well written and read story that did not need tons of profanity. I think there was only one or two spots. I intend to listen to more from this writer.
