    Alien Day. The date was Friday, the third of August. For some people the day was just beginning, for others it was the ending in a perfectly normal way. Then right across the world every ground and airborne radar screen went haywire.… This time it had really happened. An alien spacecraft was in orbit around planet Earth. Nine weeks later, civilisation is on the edge of a breakdown more devastating than any nuclear war....

    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

    Interesting until the whole angel nonsense. The main character is tedious as are the love interests,

    Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    This was a recommended book several times, so I purchased it. The narrator was slooooowwww and the story was written at a 4th grade level. I am returning it.

    Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

    Story

    Boooooo. Wow! This book kept coming up as a recommendation, so I finally got it. Blah. It has all been done before, two seemly ordinary brothers/friends find out that they are special, grand adventure, wise old mystery man, many close calls....a hundred times in a hundred ways from the Robert Jordan to Terry Brooks, and the Lord of the ring and every other fantasy series about a boy with special talents.

    But, in addition to a recycled story line, it was also very very slow. While Scott Brick is my favorite narrator, even he could not put adventure and depth where there was none. Skip it.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Story

    If I wanted to read a boring story about time traveling back in time to a boring era, I would have kept reading the Outlander series. The first book was excellent, and this was a disappointment. Everything that was done in the 16th century, could have been done in the present, without all the silly historical figures and nonsense. Hopefully the next book will be more like the first.

    Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land.

    D says: "Detour!"
    "A wasted credit"
    Overall

    I agree with many of the other reviewers. I feel insulted by this book. Jensen is an immature, idiotic character who takes too long undertand the simpliest things. It is as if Terry Goodkind wanted a whole novel to spout her philosphy over and over. Since the reader knows that Jensen is fooled, the agony is sitting through hours of tedium. Love the rest of the books so far.
