I recommend this book to fans of, and those who are interested in an analysis of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series.
The narrators did a great job of getting the point of view of the authors across to the reader. I also enjoyed the fact that there were multiple narrators for this book.
The book is sold at a good price and worth it. I bought this to complete my Cassandra Clare collection. I don't usually enjoy analyses of books but this was an enjoyable insight into the shadowhunter and downworlder stories.
In Slaves of Socorro Hal and his crew are working with an Arualuen Ranger, on a quest to free slaves from the slave markets in Socorro. They also pursue Tursgurd who has turned pirate and slaves. It is another excellent read in John Flanagan' s Brotherband Chronicles. A great listen as well.
The hunt for Zavac is on, and the Heron' s pick up another crew member a young lady named Lydia. A duel between ships will decide the fate of the Heron crew. A great adventure story is John Flanagan' s Brotherband Chronicles, my only complaint is John Keating' s bad accents.
The Invaders is an excellent adventure in the Brotherband Chronicles. This time Hal and his Heron Brotherband are on the trail of Zavac and his crew of cutthroat pirates, on a quest to retrieve the stolen Andomal and regain their honour. The second story in this series, that promises to be even better than John Flanagan's bestselling Ranger's Apprentice series. John Keating gives a reasonable performance, but his Skandian accents are terrible.
Hal and his Heron Brotherband are trainee Skandian warriors, together they learn to work as a team to win the right to be the honour guard for the Andomal, a precious treasure that is venerated by the Skandians. It is an excellent adventure story for young readers. John Keating gives a pretty good performance of the book. John Flanagan is the author of the highly popular series Ranger's Apprentice. The Brotherband Chronicles is the follow on series focusing mostly on Skandians and not Araluen as in Ranger' s Apprentice.
Desert God by Wilbur Smith is the sequel to River God. Although it is the latest of the Egyptian novels, the story tells of events that took place after River God but before the events in Warlock. It is not as good a read as River God or Warlock, but it does give readers a feeling that the story of Taita is more complete. Well narrated by Mike Grady.
The quest is a story of sorcery, mysticism and rebirth. Taita sets out on a quest with Meren, to restore the flow of water to the Nile and end the evil sorcery of evil sorceress Eos and her minion Soe. With great narration by Simon Vance, this book is hard to put down.
Warlock is a book of history and fiction and just a small touch of magic and mysticism. Nefer the grandson of Queen Lostris, is in a battle against the forces of evil and Taita is summoned from beyond to aid the Pharaoh Nefer in defeating a usurper Pharaoh. A great narration from Dick Hill brings life to an already brilliant story. Wilbur Smith mixes history with fiction and entertains and thrills are boundless in Warlock.
The Ice Dragon is a brilliant tale that would be an ideal introduction to epic fantasy for children. Set in the same world as his Song of Ice and Fire series, The Ice Dragon tells the story of a Winter child and an Ice Dragon. Together they save their country from the advancing enemy and their dragons. Brilliant narration by Maggi Meg Reed makes the book easy to follow and listen to.
River God by Wilbur Smith is a story written from the point of view of Taita, an Egyptian eunuch slave. It is a tale of love, war, betrayal and some of the bloody history which made Egypt the great nation it once was. Great narration by Dick Hill helps bring the story alive.
A killer from Tempes past is back. Tempe is called to help on a cold case. 2 child murders and Anne Pomerleau is determined to be the killer based on DNA evidence. Tempe tracks down her sometime beau Andrew Ryan to help, who is living a self imposed exile, after the death of his daughter. What they uncover is even more horrifying then anyone could imagine. The Temperance Brennan series by Kathy Reichs is an amazing series. Katherine Borowitz delivers a brilliant performance of Bones Never Lie.
