    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

    This is my 10th read and, the beautiful thing about this book is that it’s built for re-reading. There is so much attention to detail that you can reread it several times and pick up on something you missed each time. The ability to balance suspense, humor and science is so perfectly achieved.

    Can you imagine a new chemical compound, a nonaddictive designer drug that heightens your assertiveness, opens the door to your primal self, giving you an edge wherever you compete, whether on the street or the football field, in a classroom or a boardroom? Wouldn’t you be tempted to try it...just once? What happens if it releases uncontrollable rage and makes you a killer?

    One of the best in the series, very little “Otherness” and more true to the “Fix It” Jack. A throw back to “The Tomb” with the appearance of Scar-Lip but no real emphasis on the “Otherness” that ruins this series.

    Our universe is ruled by physics, and faster-than-light travel is not possible - until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field we can access at certain points in space-time that transports us to other worlds, around other stars. Humanity flows away from Earth, into space, and in time forgets our home world and creates a new empire, the Interdependency, whose ethos requires that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war - and a system of control for the rulers of the empire.

    As always, Wil Wheaton kills it, amazing narrator. Story was ok, just a bit much to follow. It's a good set up book for the series but it's not one to prioritize.

    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

    The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when 14-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia. To her parents' despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie's descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession.

    Martin and his friends discovered that their world is computer generated and that by altering the code they could alter reality. They traveled back in time to Medieval England to live as wizards. Almost everything they've done since then has, in one way or another, blown up in their faces. So of course they decide to make dragons. It does not go well.

    It pains me to say because I was really looking forward to this book but, it was a big let down. It feels like, what could have been a great novella, was stretched thin to make a full novel. The concept was fun but it was such a dry plot and there were SOOOO many directions that could have been take. To make a more solid book.

    If you're into the series, you should read it but, really, I don't think you'll miss anything if you don't.

    Repairman Jack is back! Jack can fix any problem, natural or supernatural, for a price. Now, in his next gripping adventure, he takes on two cases at once. The first involves a nun being blackmailed. What’s in those photos, she won’t say, but with her meager savings just about exhausted, she hires Jack to help her. The second: an elderly woman needs Jack to find her missing son. Jack must infiltrate the inner reaches of the Dormentalist Church, a secretive, globe-spanning cult whose members include some of the biggest and most powerful names in entertainment, sports, and politics.

    Where does Crisscross rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Enjoyed this book, good fixes, very entertaining. As always though, ruined by "The Otherness".


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, good RJ Fix-it's


    What aspect of Christopher Price’s performance would you have changed?

    His read is flat. hes not bad, just not a good fit for this series. the reader from Cold city was better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Its repairman Jack, not Oprah...no, nothing "Moved" me lol


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Wilson could just let Jack fix things and leave the Otherness crap out. The fixes in each of the books are enough of a foundation to stand on, you dont need this cosmic world garbage.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    With a lot of details and a slightly dry delivery in the reading, it's a book that you have to vomit to finishing at some points but well worth it.

    I almost gave up a couple hours in but, once it picked up and the details started to come together, it was a great read.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Would you try another book from Peter Clines and/or Ray Porter?

    IDK, it would have to have some serious endorsement to get me to invest into another book from Clines after this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Clines again?

    see previous statement.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ray Porter?

    Yah, not amazing but not bad either. He just got stuck with a bad story and you cant make bricks without clay.


    What character would you cut from 14?

    The list of what I would keep is much shorter.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has 81 chapters and, no joke, for the first 60/70 chapters, nothing happens. Finally, toward chapter 70 or so, things start pulling together and suspense starts to rise; however, it quickly falls leavening you with an overwhelming feeling of being underwhelmed. If you finish the book, check out F. Paul. Willson’s series “Repairman Jack”. It has a lot of out of place supernatural nonsense as well but at least Jack is a bad ass and not a socially depressed office worker treading water below the poverty line.
