    As war continues to rage between the Alliance and Syndicate Worlds, Captain "Black Jack" Geary is promoted to admiral - even though the ruling council fears he may stage a military coup. His new rank gives him the authority to negotiate with the Syndics, who have suffered tremendous losses and may finally be willing to end the war. But an even greater alien threat lurks on the far side of the Syndic occupied space.

    "A great continuation to a great series."
    Overall

    I started this series as this book was released, so I was able to listen to all the books in the series. This one really ties things up nicely. Great action, espionage, and a little romance.
    I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Does the idea of asking for more than you're offered make you squeamish? Well, it's time to face the fact that bargaining is a fundamental part of life, both personally and professionally. Negotiate Smart teaches the most useful techniques you need to get the most from a negotiation, whether it's for a raise, a used car, or the last cookie in the jar.

    Mark says: "Not bad -- Had some good tips"
    "Just didn't get it."
    Overall

    I found it pretty boring and lacking in substance. I kept waiting for some actual advice.

    I also got "The Only Negotiating Guide You'll Ever Need" and found it to be very useful in negotiating and handling people at work.

    In The Only Negotiating Guide You'll Ever Need, Peter Stark and Jane Flaherty, celebrated consultants to some of the country's top companies, take the dread out of persuasion. Their 101 winning tactics make powerful negotiating skills easy and accessible, giving you tools and knowledge you can put to use right away. Each tactic has a clever and memorable name, a true-to-life example of how to use it, and suggested counter tactics in case someone tries it on you.

    Ernie says: "Ive already made money from this book!"
    "Helpful and fascinating"
    Overall

    While listening to this book I was constantly suprised how many of these tactics had been used on me over the years without my knowledge. I now feel more comfortable to deal with negotiations and dealing with conflicts too. I actually look forward to them.

    The year is 878, and the Saxons of Wessex, under King Alfred, have defeated the Danes to keep their kingdom free. Uhtred, the dispossessed son of a Northumbrian lord, helped Alfred win that victory, but now he is disgusted by Alfred's lack of generosity. Uhtred flees Wessex, going north to search for his stepsister in the formidable stronghold of Dunholm.

    scott says: "Best on Audible"
    "Ruined by bad voice acting choice"
    Overall

    The story is good, and I loved the first two books. Unfortunately for this audio version they chose a new voice actor. He may be great for other books for Lords of the North he's awful. All priests sound like Monty Python parodies and the Danish King sound like an fawning effeminate danish smurf. The main character sounds like an emo. I barely got through the book and will be buying the print version to erase these characterizations from my mind.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "very entertaining"
    Overall

    This is my first non-graphic Gaiman novel and it's fantastic.

    Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a curse, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death.

    Andrew says: "Fantastic!"
    "Excellent Adventure with perfect reading"
    Overall

    This is my first book by this author and I am very happy with it. The story is fascinating. The narration is the best I've heard in any audio book. I ride a motorcycle to commute betweek 3-4 hours a day and this book has made the time fly.
