    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Story
    What did you love best about Styxx?

    Further answering the Styxx and Acheron origins from Styxx's perspective. This missive fills in an few unanswered questions as to how deep their uncle's treachery had gone. Also, this cast a far different picture of their sister than ever before. To the point of "My GOD that is not their sister. That is their mother!"


    What did you like best about this story?

    All portions of the story were well written and masterfully researched. This Lady writes even beyond the levels of the "Great Master's."


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    When does he go on a Audio Book signing tour? He was as always in his performances, excellent and nearly with out equal.


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

    YES!!!!! But, 30+ hours makes it kind of hard to do so. Excellent Book, when is the next one?

    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    Heather says: "Rick Riordan does it again..."
    "Is there nothing that this man cannot dream up?"

    He is a true Master of his craft. A Steven King or R.L.Stein for the little ones. These are stories I can read to my little girl. That is a true blessing. Thank you Sir.

    Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet—the chaos snake Apophis—is rising.

    Craig says: "Rick is masterful with history and incrporation."
    "This guy is a Great!!!"
    Overall

    He has two differing streams of Hero's in two differing series. OK, I did not even think that waking RA would be the next move. What a great twist in the plot. Immortal parents, too cool. What will he think of next??? A gifted writer.

    Rick Riordan is the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Kane Chronicles. His latest book, The Lost Hero, is the first in a new series – The Heroes of Olympus. He recently chatted with Audible Editor Diana Dapito about his new book and his career as an author, and revealed which of his characters are his favorites.

    Terry says: "Rick Riordan Speaks"
    "Where did this Man come from?"
    Overall

    Mr. Rick Riordan is a bit of a cool genius. Never, ever have a read/listened to a book that melds Greek and Roman legends and lore. This man is a gifted researcher and writer. His books give us a possible look and feel of what the world would be like if the Gods did really exist. He has a gift for creating characters that kids and adults love. Let us hope that he has the level of success that J.K. Rowling has had with the Potter series.

    If you are a fan of the Left Behind series of just a new reader. These books just keep making Scripture easier to understand. I think we should all pay attention to the Books... Because to put it simply. "One day these events will play out for all to see."

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Andrew says: "Narrator speaks at double speed without pauses…"
    "Sweet Book"

    Great Book Like it very much. It is a book that makes you think about some of our own DREAMS. Wonderful bought all three books, I know I will not be disappointed.

    The smash hit Left Behind saga, the best-selling inspirational series of all time, comes to its extraordinary conclusion in this thrilling audiobook. Glorious Appearing picks up the action following the cosmic battle of the ages, and not all the members of the Tribulation Force have survived!

    timetobuy says: "how a write about the Re-Appearing of christ?"
    "A true look at what GOD has instore for you...."
    Overall

    Well, I've gone through all 12 of the books. Folks this book made me cry. If you thing this is a joke or Christian(Right)Bunk, YOU are sadly mistaken. The LORD has a 4,000 year old Love Letter to you. The 12 books give you a look at what is coming. The pictures painted by the words are "Pure Divine Inspiration". More so than the Potter series, start with Book one. May you gleen some thing from this book, may the devil not steal the seed that is sewn in you. These books are a bit like Fox News, FAIR and Balanced. Read them all and see for yourself. I leave you with a question. If a Billions people call a cat a dog. Are they all wrong or are they right. Hint, If the whole world is against you and the LORD is with you. You win.

    Folks, this is a good look at the way the World will react to the Word of GOD. Many folks will look for any other reason to explain why they were Left Behind. Folks read, listen and understand this is a Warning. Well on a scale of 1-10, this book is a 10! I could not stop listening to it. There is some one who would like to Talk to all of us, listen to this book and He will not be to hard to find.

    To know the Sweet Potato Queens is to love them, and if you haven't heard about them yet, you will. Their royal ringleader, Jill Conner Browne, introduces the Queens to the world with this sly, hilarious manifesto about love, life, men, and the importance of being prepared. For more wit and wisdom, don't miss The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Audiobook and Financial Planner.

    Overall

    To learn is great, to understand is even greater. If you ever needed to know about women then this is the book for you. When she say's no, read this book. When she say's wait, read this book. Bottom line, if your a dumb guy who is lost with the girls. Read this book.
