    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Story

    I've always loved the movies, but never read the books. This trilogy was recommended to me and I thought I would try it. The story is great, giving you background into the Sith history.

    Jonathan Davis's does a great job.

    I already have the next two books in the trilogy and they are next.

    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.

    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    "In The Woods" is a great novel. Loved that book. The sequel doesn't stand up to the first. Sorry. I will continue reading French's novels though. Some people has issues with Heather O'Neill's accent. I actually thought it was very good.

    Thank you Audible. I would have never found Matthew Corbett's stories without you. McCammon writing is exceptional, and Ballerini's narration is just spot on. I'm so glad I found McCammon novels and will continue reading other works.

    Thanks.

    It definitely puts a different spin on an executioners life. I enjoyed the book. I had to read it because of all the hype.

    I would also recommend Speaks the Nightbird for historical fiction.

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Abraham Lincoln! Vampire Hunter??? Well, its actually good. The author does mix fact with A LOT of fiction. He's done his historical homework. And the story is entertaining. The performance keeps you engaged and once your hooked, you will want to finish it.

I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    After completing Book 1, I had to listen to Book 2. It does not disappoint. The story is compelling and commits the reader to Kvothe’s quests.

    Nick Podehl makes the characters come alive.

    A full year before book 3 comes out! I can't wait and will need to make a BIG decision. Read the book or listen?
