    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Story

    I almost didn't buy this one since I wasn't too satisfied with Dead or Alive. But with a different author in play I gave it a shot and enjoyed the story. It'll keep me coming back to the next one although I'll miss the characters I grew up with as the approach getting put out to pasture.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    "Too many holes. Definitely for young adults."

    Story

    I don't get what the excitement was about with this book. Given that I'm a guy in my 40s I'm not what the author had in mind for her target audience. There's just way too many holes in the world that she tries to create and you REALLY have to suspend belief just to get through it. There's virtually no discussion about how Chicago became the center of the society and it's hard to believe there's no influence from others who live outside the area. And while the faction concept is interesting, anyone with a basic understanding of human nature will see that this societal design wouldn't exist in the "real" world.

    Perhaps the author is expecting all of the young adults to just be naive and not ask too many questions but for me this book was uneventful and even absurd.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    it had to end. I wish The Iron Druid installments were twice as long. These books go by way too fast! Now I have to figure out what to do until Hearne finishes "Trapped". Bummer.
