Sometimes legends become realities in unexpected ways. It seems that fate has the crew of the Aurora firmly in its clutches.

    Story

    Leg of Cor is a great read. Unlike Rings of Haven which was dull and desperate, LoC takes you back to what Aurora was all about: excitement, friendship, and legends. Nathan Scott makes you want to root for him, and every member of his crew that he loses you feel the pain with him. But Ryk doesn't just make you love Nathan and the crew, he makes you respect them as well. This series is starting to come into a realm of its own. It's no longer a Star Trek copy and is quickly becoming it's own tale.

    Popular author Daniel Abraham’s works have been nominated for the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award. In The Dragon’s Path, former soldier Marcus is now a mercenary—but he wants nothing to do with the coming war. So instead of fighting, he elects to guard a caravan carrying the wealth of a nation out of the war zone—with the assistance of an unusual orphan girl named Cithrin.

    Story

    If you like banking or upper class Medieval politics, then this is the book for you. However, if you actually enjoy books, then skim though this opener. This book/series has so much potential, but book one is just lacking. Everything is there, Abraham just needs to write about something interesting! I will say this though, I've heard that if you can suffer through book 1 and move on to book 2, the series really picks up. But I'm just not sure I can risk that after the drool that was The Dragon's Path!

    Blaine McFadden endured six long years in the brutal Velant prison colony, exiled for murder. War devastated his homeland of Donderath and destroyed the magic on which the Ascendant Kingdoms relied. Now Blaine and a small group of fellow exiles have returned to a lawless wasteland, where unrestrained magic storms wreak havoc and monsters roam free. Yet, amidst the chaos, rumors persist of a new magic that could restore the kingdoms. But the key lies with a dangerous, ancient ritual and a group of vanished survivors.

    The Headline is all you need. This book/series is terrible! Run away fast and far. The Character's get more exotic but no less weak and whiny. Then we get a romance forced on us. The vampires are still there, although outside of the two main ones they really aren't. The constant travel to supposedly randomly places where they find anything but random things. Everything falling perfectly into place without any struggle. Then forced struggles. Then...Ah. So bad!

Now, as the world's magic runs wild, McFadden and the people of Velant must fight to survive and decide their fate....

    Story

    This book had all the promise of an epic novel. It had a great cover, a great and exciting preview, and several promising reviews. But then I bought the book. And then there was nothing happening. And then the world ended. And then there was a vampire. And then there was a world again. And then there was...this book was terrible. The characters are weak and forced on you. And you have no idea who the main character actually is. You think it's Mic/Blaine, but you can't really tell! Plus, Blaine sucks! And then there were Vampires!!! I can't stress that enough. For some reason ($$$) there are vampires in this story! Save your credits.

    Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

    Story

    Tower Lord is a good and fascinating book, but it really does lack when compared to the Blood Song. Slow at the beginning, then it picks up by bringing in both new and enticing characters and then old and favored characters. But after our character intros, the book kind of drags for a while; giving us useful information and showing us new places, but nothing really happens, just people moving around. Then everything happens. Very exciting last quarter that permanently plants Raven's Shadow/Ryan's flag in the Fantasy universe!

    Can't wait for book 3! Love this series!

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Story

    In Shattered, a lot happens, but we really don't get down to any of the meat of the story. It's just another entertaining filler that catches us up on Owen (Atticus' Arc Druid). Don't get me wrong, like Hexed and Tricked, the story is very entertaining, but doesn't really contribute that much to the overall story line.

    Still really good and worth a credit/payment.

    The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm. Vaelin Al Sorna was only a child of 10 when his father left him at the iron gate of the Sixth Order. The Brothers of the Sixth Order are devoted to battle, and Vaelin will be trained and hardened to the austere, celibate, and dangerous life of a Warrior of the Faith. He has no family now save the Order.

    Story

    Blood Song is a true epic. You hate and love Vaelin, which makes him such a great character. But Vaelin isn't the only character you feel this way about. More than half the characters go from being beloved to hated and vice versa throughout the book. Terrible people can be seen as great men/women, Great men/women are easily turned into horrible people. Ryan truly pulls you in and never let go.

    My one complaint is with Mr. Brand; whose reading isn't bad, its just similar-monotone-boring. All the characters sound similar and there is more than one time when he uses a normal speaking tone, then follows with "He said in a whisper" or "as he shouted from the roof". Really takes the edge away from some of the lines.

    All in all, definitely a great choice!

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Theft of swords is broken into 2 separate stories in one book. Story 1 is an instant classic that makes you need to finish the entire series and the prequels. Story 2 is just a filler but Sullivan is such a great writer that he keeps you both interested and entertained! Highly recommended.

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    You, dear listener, continue at your own risk. It is not for the faint of heart - no more so than the study of dragons itself. But such study offers rewards beyond compare: to stand in a dragon's presence, even for the briefest of moments - even at the risk of one's life - is a delight that, once experienced, can never be forgotten….All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world's preeminent dragon naturalist.

    I don't particularly enjoy reading books where the main character is narrating the story, but if you can work passed that and you're not a sexist, then this is a pretty good book. The story is lacking at times I guess, but the plot is sound. Narration is okay, but nothing great. Wouldn't recommend it, but I also wouldn't stop anybody from trying it.
