    Having learned a lesson about thwarting the will of the gods, Imriel and Sidonie publicly confess their affair, only to see the country boil over in turmoil. Younger generations, infatuated by their heart-twisting, star-crossed romance, defend the couple. Many others cannot forget the betrayals of Imriel's mother, Melisande, who plunged their country into a bloody war that cost the lives of their fathers, brothers, and sons.

    L. Adams says: "Great story with fabulous narration"
    "So much better than Fifty Shades of "Whatever"."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kushiel's Mercy to be better than the print version?

    Can't honestly answer that. I'm blind and don't read printed books.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    I enjoy Simon Vance a great deal. He has a wonderful voice, and he is good at crating different sounding characters. No one character stainds out, but the overall reading was great.


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

    I tend to pick books that are long, 15-20 hours or more. So... no.


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed all of this series.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    ArtC says: "A bad new-age after-school special"
    "Meh"
    Overall

    For a story about death, life's pains and regrets, it lacked a certain sensativity. I just wasn't really moved by it.

    Egypt is struck by a series of terrible plagues that cripple the Kingdom, and then the ultimate disaster follows: the Nile fails. The waters that nourish and sustain the land dry up. Something catastrophic is taking place in the distant and totally unexplored depths of Africa from where the mighty river springs. In desperation, Pharaoh sends for Taita, the only man who might be able to find the source of the Nile and discover the cause of all their woes.

    John Fedderke says: "Dissapointed beyond belief"
    "Eeeew!!"
    Overall

    I couldn’t be more unimpressed with this book. It was a sad attempt at vaguely erotic fiction, lacking the nerve, ability or knowledge to pull it off. It was a total waist of time and money. If I could give it less than one star I would.
