    "I am Meredith, princess of faerie, wielder of the hands of Flesh and Blood, and at long last, I am with child twins, fathered by my royal guard. Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me. And now he has branded my guards as a threat to my unborn children."

    Kristy says: "Story is great, narration was not so great"
    "Another good book, with a good new narrator"
    Overall

    If you are a fan of the series you will enjoy this book. If you are new to the series do not start here. I really like the new narrator for the series. Some times it is hard when a new narrator takes over a series but pronunciations are the same and her reading really drew me in to the book. I hope Claudia Black will narrate the future books of this series.

    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Love the book & the narration is top notch but all the back ground noise and music takes away from the telling of the story. Really hope that they put out the other 2 books of the trilogy unabridged!

    A recent legacy made Cassandra Palmer heir to the title of Pythia, the world's chief clairvoyant. It's a position that usually comes with years of training, but Cassie's circumstances are a little...unusual. Now she's stuck with a whopping amount of power that every vamp, fey, and mage in town wants to either monopolize or eradicate - and that she herself doesn't dare use.

    If you liked the first book, Touch the Dark, you will love this one. Be warned, just as book one left you hanging at the end so will this one. I can't wait to get book three. Hopefully audible will have it soon or I will have to go get the dead tree version

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    Carol says: "Horrible Narration Take 2"
    "another great book"
    Overall

    This is a great additon to the series. The new narrator took some getting use to. The problem with the narrator was there was very littel voice difference between charaters that a good narrator can pull off. But once you got used to it the story really did make up for it. For you to get the full impact of the book you really need to go in order since the books build off one another. Happy reading :)

    One of the few survivors of a League sneak attack on his poor and miserable homeworld of Carescria, Wilf Brim sets out to settle the score. Were it not for the attrition from the war that followed, Wilf would never have escaped his lower-class status and been accepted into the Academy. Now, freshly graduated, young Sublieutenant Wilf Ansor Brim, Imperial Fleet, begins his first assignment, Helmsman of the I.F.S. Truculent.

    "Second time is the charm"
    Overall

    The first time I tried to listen to this book I only got 30 min in to it before I got bored and went on to another book. The author goes on in great detail about the ships and planets of the book and this can get tedious very quickly. I was also not used to a full cast book, it is quite different then a straight narrated book. I tried to listen to the book again a few months later since I had nothing else to listen to. After getting past the tediousness of the details it turned out to be a good space drama. I look forward to the next book in this series.
