    Mario Puzo first answered the question 'What is a family?' with the creation of the Corleones in his landmark best seller The Godfather. Now, 30 years later, Puzo enriches us all with his ultimate vision of the subject: the story of the greatest crime family in Italian history, the Borgias.

    Robert says: "15th Century Godfather"

    When Rigg and his friends crossed the Wall between the only world they knew and a world they could not imagine, he hoped he was leading them to safety. But the dangers in this new wallfold are more difficult to see. Rigg, Umbo, and Param know that they cannot trust the expendable, Vadesh - a machine shaped like a human, created to deceive - but they are no longer certain that they can even trust one another. But they will have little choice. Because although Rigg can decipher the paths of the past, he can’t yet see the horror that lies ahead: A destructive force with deadly intentions is hurtling toward Garden.

    Story

    I can see some people might feel the performance is slow/aimed at children. But for me the story is engaging and just what I need for my nightly 30 minute bedtime story.

    I get to be a kid again, but still engaged with a great story.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    I like. Both Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Janice card do a great job. Sometimes Emily gets a bit distorted. I think the gain was just a bit too high, and so sometimes it hurt my ears a bit.

    Moving to book 2 :)
