    From the author of the best-selling Guardians of Ga'Hoole series comes the story of the wolves of Ga'Hoole. This is the inspiring story of an abandoned wolf pup, Faolan, who is determined to survive.

    Story

    Lasky does it again with this amazing series. The story is gripping and every bit as good as the ga'hoole series. I do have to say that I am not crazy about the narrator. His "voice" that he uses for every female character and young Faolin are all identical. Like a guy pretending to talk like a girl as a joke. I know its hard for men to do female character voices, but I have heard much better. His diction and pronunciation are lacking, more like a dad reading his kid a bedtime story than a professional narrator. That being said, the story is so compelling, it is easy to look over the sub-par narrating, and you do not notice it after a while. I do not say this to be negative against Erik Davies, but just to submit my opinion in an honest review.

    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    Story

    As much as I can't stand roaches, I didn't think I would be able to get past it and enjoy the book, but I did! They are quite lovable in this book :) A great story, with awesome characters, and wonderful twists and turns. Flows very well and is very easy to follow. The only thing I'm not crazy about is Paul Boehmer as a narrator. He is ok, I guess, but his voice for two year old Boots REALLY irks me unfortunately. He makes her sound like a creepy breathy old woman. Not even close to a two year old. And her "ge-go" is supposed to be the way she says 'Gregor' but he makes it sound like more of a strange sentence add on and doesn't pronounce it like a two year old would. But he does pretty good with the roaches, I guess. And as far as the other characters go, he pretty much just uses his own voice, not much difference in character. But I got used to it and still was able to enjoy the story :)

    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    I absolutely adore the Inheritance cycle and eagerly await the fourth and final book in the series due this November! I love this audio version, Doyle does a great job with voices and made it easy to forget I was listening to an audiobook, made it seem much more real! Loved it!
