    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Douglas says: "GRIPPING!"
    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    This book is excellent. The author has done an excellent job to avoid making the book an autobiography. I admire the courage of the deep see divers and the tenacity with which they sought the truth about the sunken sub.

    As Volume 2 of The Egyptian opens, Thebes is in the grip of panic brought on by famine, disease, and the threat of war. The fear crazed mob is on the verge of anarchy. Pharaoh Akhnaton, self-absorbed in his new religion, is now openly despised by nearly all. Sinuhe remains loyal. In the background, the priests and royal household begin to arrange for his removal and attempt to enlist Sinuhe in their plot.

    "Long Book but worth the listen"
    Overall

    This books takes your through the ancient egypt and takes you through personal journey of an egyptian physian. At times, I felt that unnecessary details are in the book but It may have been necessary to acclaim the reader/listener to the ancient times. The author does a good job of recapping the crualty, emotions, segragation etc.. of old times. Overall, good book.

    The world of ancient Egypt springs magnificently to life in this astonishing historical novel of love, war, political intrigue, and religious revolution. Told from the first person point of view, it is the story of Sinuhe, physician to the royal court of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and his successors in the middle of the tumultuous 14th century B.C.

    In the second Babylon Rising novel, Biblical scholar, archaeologist, professor, and hero for our times Michael Murphy is in pursuit of one of the most mysterious and sought-after of all Biblical artifacts, Noah's Ark. As Murphy undertakes his death-defying quest to ascend Mount Ararat, he will discover dramatic revelations of Biblical prophecies and be drawn even closer to the most terrifying evil about to be unleashed on all mankind.

    Tammy says: "Incredible"
    "Disappointing at best.."
    Overall

    The only reason that I am giving this book 3 stars is that it has managed to peak my interest into the whole thing of Noah's Ark and where it is today. The book is poorly written and attemps to preach at times... It's not what you are looking for in this book. I think that book 1 was much better than this. I hope that future installments will focus on the plot more than preaching.

But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    "Good Book but not one of the best by Nelson DeMile"
    Overall

    This book has a good story but it develops a bit slowly. Probably better off listening to this book in abridged format then unabridged.I felt that a lot of details could have been skipped and the ending was so so... As I said, it a good book but not one of the best by Nelson DeMile

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    This book is well worth your time. The story is truely amazing. This is a must read or listen book. The only one thing that I didn't like about this book in audio format is all the years the story goes back and forth. It's almost better to read this book so that you can quickly refer to the entire timeline of the book. Excellent all around.

    The creator of the Left Behind series introduces a terrific new hero for our time. Michael Murphy is a scholar of Biblical prophecy, but not the sedate and tweedy kind. Murphy is a field archaeologist who defies danger to fearlessly hunt down and authenticate ancient artifacts from Biblical times. His latest discovery is his most amazing, but it will send him hurtling from a life of excavation and revelations to a confrontation with the forces of the greatest evil.

    Michael says: "A good inspiration"
    "A good audiobook ..Not a great book"
    Overall

    I agree with what rest of the reviewers are saying that this book is far from captivating considering the main topic of the plot. Perhaps,Tim Lahey got caught in developing a series more than developing a good book. I guess one has to read all the books in the series to truely judge if the entire plot and the composition was worth it or no.

    In 1917, Nicholas II, Tsar of Russia, was executed by revolutionaries. Now, in response to the collapse of the country's economy, the people have voted to instate a new Tsar, one who will be chosen from the descendents of Nicholas II. But a powerful group of Western businessmen want to make sure he is a candidate they can control, and hire African-American lawyer Miles Lord, with his knowledge of Russian language and history, to check the background of their chosen man.

    Christopher says: "This was well worth it."
    "Awesom plot and excellent narration"
    Overall

    This book is an audiobook listener's delight. The plot is captivating and the narrator is excellent. The one thing I liked about the plot is the fact that the main characters in the book are common folks like us. Often you read a book where the main characters is depicted to have this uncommon abilities and can do things rest of us can't do. Steve Berry has done an excellent job of keeping the character honest and keeping Miles a common man who happens to get caught unknowingly in Tsar mess. Only one thing that I felt that Steve Berry lacked is to properly develop romance between the characters. He used cheesy lines like "you can kiss me now".But other than that, I truely enjoyed the book.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    "Fantastic Book"
    Overall

    This book is written really well. I see a lot of similarity to the LOTR but the story is unique. The book takes you through a journey of a young boy and from annonymity to fame & glory. Really fascinating. I am anxiously awaiting the rest of the books in the series.
