    As a SEAL on combat deployment in Iraq, Mike Ritland saw a military working dog in action and instantly knew he found his true calling. While the SEAL teams had used dogs in the past, they never had dogs trained specifically by SEALs, for SEALs. To fill this void, Ritland started his own company after he retired, training and supplying dogs for the West Coast SEAL teams. He knew that less than 1% of all working dogs had what it takes to contribute to the success of our nation’s elite combat units. He searched the globe for animals who fit this specific profile.

    Dark fantasy goes hardboiled in Book II of the hard-hitting Grimnoir Chronicles by the New York Times best-selling creator of Monster Hunter International. The Grimnoir Society’s mission is to protect people with magic, and they’ve done so—successfully and in secret—since the mysterious arrival of the Power in the 1850s, but when a magical assassin makes an attempt on the life of President Franklin Roosevelt, the crime is pinned on the Grimnoir.

    Paulette says: "Spellbound is Pure Magic"

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    "Phenomenal!"

    If you could sum up Hard Magic in three words, what would they be?

    unpredictable, well developed, fun


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's like listening to a movie. Bronson perfectly captures the tone, pitch and nuance of every character--from a little girl to a powerful brute.


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

    It made me imagine!


    Any additional comments?

    What a discovery. I'm looking up more books by this author and this narrator.

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Teddy says: "Thought provoking and Uplifting.... A++++++++!!!!!"

    If you could sum up Quiet in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, thought-provoking, inconsistent


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/a - non-fiction


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathe Mazur?

    Anyone with a stronger voice. It was exasperating to listen to such a soft, whispery voice. Yeah, the book's title is Quiet, but that shouldn't have been the way it was read.


    Any additional comments?

    The author provided excellent points about the fact that not all introverts are shy, but then sometimes contradicted herself with guidance about how to overcome shyness as a general strategy. But it was helpful more times than not.
