    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Overall

    Without question, one of the finest and most original books I have ever read.

    This book was purchased on a whim and now I cannot wait until the next book. The originality of the world and the Corelings, as well as the marvelous character development make this a must read for anyone who enjoys Steven King et al.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Would you try another book from Karen Marie Moning and/or Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante ?

    No. Reminds me of buying a hamburger with 85% filler. Slow moving - I wish my player had fast forward. The undercurrent of sex added nothing - only detracted.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Marie Moning again?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante ???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shadowfever?

    I believe it could probably have been outstanding if 50% or more was eliminated. No necessarily a scene - just a condensation.

    On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all.

    Overall

    Despite my best efforts, I found this book difficult to get into and even more difficult to become absorbed in. In fact, it became so painful to follow that I erased it from my audio player.

    It was meandering and many times off-point - quite a miserable endeavor
