    How do you keep the people you care about safe from enemies you can’t remember? Ten years ago, Nate Garrett awoke on a cold warehouse floor with no memory of his past and the only clues to his identity were a piece of paper with his name on it and a propensity toward magic. Now he’s a powerful sorcerer and a successful thief for hire, but it turns out that those who stole his memories aren’t done with him yet. When they cause a job to go bad, threatening a sixteen-year-old girl, Nate swears to protect her.

    If you are looking for a present day, action packed series, then look no further. Crimes Against Magic is an excellent book with my only complaint being that Steve has only two books in this series.

    Tavi of Calderon, now recognized as Princeps Gaius Octavian and heir to the crown, has achieved a fragile alliance with Alera's oldest foes, the savage Canim. But when Tavi and his legions guide the Canim safely to their lands, his worst fears are realized. The dreaded Vord - the enemy of Aleran and Cane alike - have spent the last three years laying waste to the Canim homeland. And when the Alerans are cut off from their ships, they find themselves with no choice but to fight shoulder to shoulder if they are to survive.

    Thank God Butcher is so prolific, there has been a time when I would finish one of his series to pick up in another one of his series. In other words, Butcher is one of the best and most engaging authors I have read. Add to this a brilliant performance and hold on for a great ride. I hate writing reviews but Butcher is one of my favorite authors so please leave him alone so he can write more as I have read everything he has written!

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    ... boy are missing out. Larry Correia is one of the best fantasy/sci-fi writers. Add to that a brilliant performance and sit back for a great ride. This series is so good I actually listened to the first three books again, something I never do.

    He took this book down an unexpected road and still managed to bring in the good old boys and girls. A brilliant author, all his books have been great!

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Another great series from Jim. This is the first book in the series so it starts a bit slow laying down the background information, then it picks up and you are in for a great ride. Just finished the second book and am moving on to the third. A great series, highly recommend!

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Bought this book because of all the glowing reviews. They must have been from patient people! I gave this book over 7 hours of listening and gave up. I have heard of character development but this is ridiculous. But then I love The Dresden Files and Monster Hunter series. So if you have a lot of patience this book is for you... otherwise, skip it.

    ..it's time to stop and listen. Larry's books are full of action; with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. His Warbound series was so exciting, that I went through it so fast to find out the resolution of the next conflict, that I had to relisten to the entire series at a more leisurely pace.

    What I am saying is listen (or read) his books, you can't go wrong. Oh yes, congrats Mike on working with Larry. Good choice Larry.

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    I can't believe I just discovered Larry's books. He is a brilliant writer keeping the reader on the edge of their seat throughout each and every book! I read his Hard Magic series first and hope there is another book in it. I believe his writings will become classics in the field.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    I put off listening to this book for months... what a mistake. This is a brilliant book followed by a brilliant series and I am now on his other series and am far from dissappointed. Actually I am dissappointed that this series is over.
    I am not one for writing reviews so all I can say is do not pass up this book, you will enjoy every moment of it.
