    No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn't. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

    Would you listen to War of Honor again? Why?

    Yes, right before the newest book comes out I like to listen to the series again.


    What other book might you compare War of Honor to and why?

    I really couldn't say what book, but it reminds me of Elizabeth Moon's "Vatta's War" series. Both strong female leads, saving the galaxy by just doing what needs to be done.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listen to her performances in this series and have enjoyed them all. And I really like the fact that the author took the blame for the mispronunciation of "Man-tik-er-ahn."


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Greed, Betrayal, Anger...War!

    Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this series to a friend because it is very entertaining. When I got to the end of the book I couldn't believe I had already finished 10 hours of listening. It just flew bye. I was totally immersed in the author's world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character, by far, Bernie Kosar. He's every childs dream! A loyal companion that can turn into an alien killing beast.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I particularly like the narrators' ability to make you feel the emotions the author is trying to convey.


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

    I did, without even planning to. Started at work, on the commute home, and then finished it up at home, flew bye.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Great book!"
    Overall

    I loved the book, but the first hour was hard to get through. So fight the urge to stop listening. After that it was great!

    When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly have known that she would not only get a front-row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus but would innocently witness something that would put her life in peril. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie — and her world — completely upside down.

    I liked this book alot. The characters were great and I really enjoyed the supernatural twist.

    New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her partner Peabody enter the hallowed halls of the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery on a case. A hugely popular vid star has been beaten to a bloody pulp - and has killed her attacker in the process. After a post-op interview, Dallas and Peabody confirm for themselves that it's a clear-cut case of self-defense.

    Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.

    As war continues to rage between the Alliance and Syndicate Worlds, Captain "Black Jack" Geary is promoted to admiral - even though the ruling council fears he may stage a military coup. His new rank gives him the authority to negotiate with the Syndics, who have suffered tremendous losses and may finally be willing to end the war. But an even greater alien threat lurks on the far side of the Syndic occupied space.

    "Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly - deliciously - it was not."

    I was very disappointed with this book, it just rubbed me the wrong way. It's not in the same class as books written by Victoria Dahl, Susan Mallery, or Suzanne Brockmann.

    Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade. Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.

    Carrie says: "Welcome back Marquerite Gavin!"
    "A series worth listening to!"
    Overall

    I liked this book a lot! It is very entertaining and I love the characters. A vampire, a witch, and a fairy living together never gets old. That's the equivilent of having a muslim, a catholic, and an atheist living together. This latest book left you with some questions, but it did tie up some plot lines. As a result, I can't wait till the next one.

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    How does this happen? Isn't there someone working with the narrator? Piss-ka-ri or Piss-care-ree, tata-ka or te-kata. Other than that an enjoyable book, but I am glad to see the previous narrator is back. Thanks!
