    Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.

    Titus Pullus, the hero of the 10th Legion and the Marching With Caesar series, tells his story from the very beginning of his life, starting with his relationship with his father, how his friendship with Vibius Domitius began, and how their burning ambition to join the Legions was helped by a veteran nicknamed Cyclops. Enlisting in the 10th Legion, raised in 61 B.C. by Gaius Julius Caesar, Birth of the 10th Legion recounts the first campaign ever conducted by Julius Caesar as a commander...

    Rollin says: "Outstanding story of a young Roman legionaire"

    What made the experience of listening to Marching with Caesar the most enjoyable?

    Seeing the first person account from a roman soldier on the ground, all the horror and bond soldiers form from battle.


    What other book might you compare Marching with Caesar to and why?

    Cant recall a book atm a book that has this perspective of the Roman era.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Whole book.....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The loyalty men can show when deployed in battle.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Words of Radiance to be better than the print version?

    No! For me i just cant find pleasure in hearing Kate Reading voice.


    Did Michael Kramer and Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Michael Krames is top notch, but like i said before Kate Reading is just terrible......

    Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Grand Slam Tale of Terror"
    "Corrie Swanson book"

    Would you consider the audio edition of White Fire to be better than the print version?

    Yes!


    Has White Fire turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No!


    What about Rene Auberjonois’s performance did you like?

    Solid as always!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No!


    Any additional comments?

    Do not like the Corrie Swanson character. Boring, and not very clever tbh. Felt more of a Corrie Swanson book, then a good Pendergast story. So kind of disipointed... Was so looking forward to this book. Have read all of the previous books and for the first time a letdown for me!
