Monster aliens, Action
Stephen Swain was my favourite just for his never say die attitude and the way he protected his daughter.
Jurassic Park, Alien and Predator all rolled into one.
Full Force and Effect delves into the threat that North Korea and its obsession with power and nuclear weapons plays in the world today. The Campus is on the trail on a retired CIA officer, now working for a private company, when he is killed in front of them after refusing to hand information over to an attractive female agent, working for the company, which is looking to sell equipment to North Korea. This leads to an attempted assassination on President Jack Ryan. Adam Yao infiltrates the North Korean mining company used in the production of a new weapon that can reach the United States. This is the best Campus novel yet, with plenty of action, twists and turns. it is a one hell of thrill ride, well written by Mark Greaney, with excellent narration by Scott Brick.
In The Shattered Lens, Alcatraz Smedley reveals the truth about Smedley talents and discovers the truth about his parents. He also becomes a king, fights off librarian robots and helps save a kingdom. The Alcatraz series is a humorous read and listen, for children and parents alike, just don't let the librarians catch you reading or listening to these books.
Alcatraz Smedley writing under the pseudonym of Brandon Sanderson tells his life story in a brilliantly funny style. Hushlanders everywhere need to get a copy of this audio book as well as a hard copy or ebook version of this, so far 4 part autobiography. Children everywhere need to be enlightened about what librarians are really up to. Ramon de Ocampo gives an excellent performance of the audiobook.
Alcatraz, Bastille and others travel to Alexandria in Egypt to library with everything ever written and soulsucking curators who take your soul in exchange for a book. A great read and listen, full of good humour and some bad. Recommend for anyone who enjoys a lighthearted yarn.
Beware of librarians, they could be evil, and authors love to torture their readers. Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians is a fun listen, full of silly little jokes, a hero who breaks things and a cast characters with other talents such as being late all the time, tripping and speaking gobbledygook when saying a sentence. A great little story for anyone who enjoys childish fun.
Legion Skin Deep by Brandon Sanderson and narrated by Oliver Wyman is a great story and it is free, what more can I say except, Awesome!
Legion is schizophrenically brilliant, and that is all have to say on this well narrated story by Brandon Sanderson.
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss is a well crafted story of epic proportions. It is day 2 of Kvothe sharing his story with Chronicler and Bast. This time Kvothe shares about his time with Maer Averon, his stopping of bandits in the Maer's lands and his time with Felurian and the Adem. It is definitely epic and is an absolutely brilliant read. The story is once again narrated by Nick Podehl whose reading adds another dimension to the already awesome story.
The Name of the Wind is an epic first novel by Patrick Rothfuss, and probably one of the best first novels I have ever read, (I have read a lot of books). The story is told from the point of view of Kvothe/Kote who is recounting his life to Chronicler at the inn he owns. It is just a great story and a story that will most likely continue for a few years yet before it is complete. It is well narrated by Nick Podehl.
The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson is a great story and well performed by Michael Kramer. Chalklings, lines of forbiddance and vigour and a mystery to solve. Joel and his friend Melody investigate strange happenings at their school when students go missing. Their main clue are a strange chalk drawing and a drawn picture of the villain. Well told story which should be enjoyed by young readers.
