    Sidney Archer has the world. A husband she loves. A job at which she excels, and a cherished young daughter. Then, as a plane plummets into the Virginia countryside, everything changes. And suddenly there is no one whom Sidney Archer can trust.

    I've only listened to a couple of chapters so far but listening to Jonathan Marosz is driving me crazy. I love David Baldacci, in fact, I just finished Innocent and The Hit. It's just this narrator that I don't like

He is to enter the service of the Master Harper himself as a rider of dragons. Soon, he embarks on a dangerous mission to the Southern Hold. The future of Pern hangs on his success.

    Story

    I was introduced to Anne McCaffrey in 1981. I have been a fan of hers ever since. So, if a book has her, (or her son, Todd's) name, buy it. The world of Pern seems so real, it is easy to imagine it really exists somewhere in the outer regions of our galaxy.

    Continuing the heart-pounding, time-bending action of the TimeRiders series, The Eternal War brings readers back to a pivotal time period in American history: The Civil War. Only this alternate history is one where a young Abraham Lincoln has somehow followed Liam into the present from 1831, and the entire course of American history has changed. If the TimeRiders can't return Lincoln to the past, the country could be trapped in a dangerous state of never-ending civil war.

    Story

    I didn't realize that these books were written for teenagers, boys at that. I, on the other hand am the exact opposite of a teenage boy. I simply could not get through the first half of the first book in the series. I absolutely would not recommend these books to anyone over the age of 16

    A mysterious woven metal artifact is found at a paleontological dig in Africa. Mystified experts, confounded by the impossible timeline they get from traditional dating methods, call upon a stubborn young man with a unique talent. Matthew Turner's gift is also his curse: When he touches any object, his awareness is flooded with the thoughts and feelings of those who touched it before him. It is a talent that many covet, some fear, and almost no one understands.

    Jan says: "So I liked it, in a random sorta way..."
    "Not that great, I wouldn't recommend it."

    Story

    This book has two separate story lines. I really liked the main story line and think that Michael Siemsen should develop it into another book. BUT, the second story line STANK. It was so lame and needs to be dropped, (like a hot potato). I understand that the second line stems from the unusual talent of Matthew Turner and I think another book featuring this character could be good…just don't try creating a second story line. You detract from Matthew. This was a book about Matthew but you got so caught up in the lame details of the artifact, you drew all the attention away from Matthew. As for Chris Patton, I was not too impressed by his performance either, but that could have been because he didn't enjoy the book and that came through in his performance. I don't know.

    The good news is that you have just awakened into Eternal Life. You are going to live forever. Immortality is a reality. A medical miracle? Not exactly. The bad news is that you are a scrap of electronic code. The world you see around you, the you that is seeing it, has been digitized, scanned, and downloaded into a virtual reality program. You are a Copy that knows it is a copy. The good news is that there is a way out.

    If you suffer from insomnia…this book is for you. It WILL put you to sleep. Adam Epstein must have been brain dead when he read this, it sounded like a technical manual rather than a story.

  • Tyranny's Alliance: Tyranny's Series, Book 3

    In this, the third book of the Tyranny Series, it is the year 2370, and the colonies of Earth are breathing a collective two year sigh of relief. The constant barrage of attacks by Amanda Callin and her hoard of thugs have ceased, but did Callin really go away? Did she lose her resolve for seeking revenge against the colonies that caused her to disband her bedraggled gang of cutthroats forever?

    Story

    I'm having a hard time listening to this particular version of Tyranny's Alliance. Andrea Bates should stick to reading dry educational books. She sounds like a school girl trying to imitate a male voice. Her narration is so freaking distracting that I keep losing track of the story line. She simply does not do Wilkins/Draude justice. Please, please, please, redo this book with Stephanie Brush.

    The year is 2368, and a gang of privateers led by Amanda Callin is routinely savaging the fleet of interstellar cargo ships that carry freight between Earth's 12 colonies. The raiders attack without mercy, leaving death and destruction in their wake as they disappear back into uncharted space. The best efforts of the authorities to track down the marauders and bring them to justice have been ineffective.

    I really enjoyed listening to this story. Wilkins/Draude kept me well entertained. I will definitely listen to them again. I have always enjoyed listening to Stephanie Brush, so the performance is a good one.
