    What did you love best about Seeds of Rebellion?

    I loved this series so much, I'm reading the books after listening to them all on audio book. I'm recommending it to all my friends and family who love fantasy writing. I'm also thinking of adapting it to be a D&D campaign for my daughter and her friends.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    "OK, but nothing to get excited about."

    Would you try another book from Mark Tufo and/or Sean Runnette?

    maybe


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Tufo before, how does this one compare?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I would of liked this book slightly better if it weren't for the unnecessary homophobia that crops of a few times. The main character's inner voice left me annoyed as well.

    Jason Walker has often wished his life could be a bit less predictable--until a routine day at the zoo ends with Jason suddenly transporting from the hippo tank to a place unlike anything he's ever seen. In the past, the people of Lyrian welcmoed visitors from the Beyond, but attitudes have changed since the wizard emperor Maldor rose to power. The brave resistors who opposed the emperor have been bought off or broken, leaving a realm where fear and suspicion prevail.

    Jason and Rachel were not born in Lyrian. They did not grow up in Lyrian. But after all of the battles and losses, the triumphs and adventures, and most of all, the friendships forged in this fantastical world, Lyrian has become home to them in a way they never could have imagined. And so, armed now with the prophecy of a dying oracle, they have gone on their separate quests - each surrounded by brave and powerful allies - knowing that the chance for success is slim. But Jason and Rachel are ready at last to become the heroes Lyrian needs, no matter the cost.

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Fellowship of the Ring again? Why?

    Yes, the narration was wonderful and the story is always epic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy and this was another chance to enjoy the story. The reading is easy to follow and deep in its character building.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I always like to hear an narrator do some voice changes for the characters and Rob Inglis was great.


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

    No so full of detail, I needed time to absorb some of the story.
