    The New York Public Library: a 100-year-old labyrinth of towering bookcases, narrow aisles and long hallways. For one night this building is to be the venue for a contest. The rules are simple: seven contestants will enter, only one will leave. With his daughter in his arms, Stephen Swain is plunged into a fight for survival. In this contest, unless you leave as the victor, you do not leave at all.

    A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr., and his fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they don't have.

    Story

    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.

    The fourth and final book in the fabulously funny Alcatraz Smedry series! Alcatraz Smedry is on a mission to save the day! In his final adventure in the series by best-selling adult fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz has a lot to prove and, as always, little time in which to do it!

    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.

    When Alcatraz and Grandpa Smedry make a pilgrimage to the Free Kingdom city of Crystallia, the Smedry home base, Alcatraz is shocked to see that he is, in fact, a legend. When he was a baby he was stolen by the Evil Librarians, and his mother, a Librarian herself, was behind the whole scheme. Now, with his estranged father, who is acting indeed strange, Bastille, who has been stripped of her armor, and Grandpa Smedry, who is, as always, late to everything (that's his Talent), Alcatraz tries to save a city under siege.

    Story

    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.

    Brandon Sanderson won instant acclaim with young listeners for the first volume of his humorous and action-packed Alcatraz series, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians. In his second adventure, Alcatraz has his hands full with a Scrivener’s Bone - a half-human, half-machine assassin - pursuing him. And if that’s not enough, Alcatraz receives word that his father is in mortal danger. Now it’s up to Alcatraz and a quirky band of his relatives to mount a daring rescue.

    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.

    The author of the Mistborn trilogy and Elantris, Brandon Sanderson is winning abundant praise for this rollicking - and unusual - tale. Alcatraz Smedry can’t exactly be described as someone who doesn’t break things. In fact, he breaks lots of things. The truth is, he’s a major klutz. Breaking things, however, might just be the ace in the hole he needs when he goes up against a cabal of nefarious (gasp!) librarians.

    Joe says: "Incredibly good!"

    Story

    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.

    As the new story begins, Leeds and his "aspects" are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there's a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous.

    Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics and his stellar continuation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In Legion, a distinctly contemporary novella filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson reveals a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. 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...."

    Story

    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.

    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.

    More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings - merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

    Story

    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.
