    Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.

    What did you like best about Razor's Edge? What did you like least?

    This story is just lame. I like the time frame it's told in, but the story itself just falls flat.


    What was most disappointing about Martha Wells’s story?

    It could have been better


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like the tones she uses.


    Was Razor's Edge worth the listening time?

    Not in the least. But as a star wars fans....


    Any additional comments?

    Don't spend money on it. Use a credit if you must.

    The Stoker Award-winning editor of the acclaimed, eclectic anthology The New Dead returns with 21st Century Dead and an all-new lineup of authors from every corner of the fiction world, shining a dark light on our fascination with tales of death and resurrection—and with zombies!

    Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

    Ive listened to quite a few zombie books and this collection is, by far, the worst. Two or three of the entire collection are not too bad. Most are just plain stupid.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    Most were very campy in nature.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nope

    It's Peretti's ultimate monster story. And this time, the monster is real. Miles away from the hectic city, Reed and Rebecca hike into the beautiful Northwestern woods. They're surrounded by gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and hundreds of acres of unspoiled wilderness. But something - or someone - begins closing in on them. Something no human has ever seen. And it's killing everyone in its path without remorse.

    What disappointed you about Monster?

    The story was not very good


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader needs to pause when changing scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    There are good writers and good story tellers. This writershould not have tried to be both

  • Ever After: The Hollows, Book 11

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Would you listen to Ever After again? Why?

    I may listen to this one again. This one was on par with the first few books of the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story delt more with the demons.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    The was nothing memorable about her performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't listen to any book in one sitting.
