    When he’s awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college. But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more. George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja.

    "Awesome story, but loss of voice actors jarring"

    Story

    This was a great addition to the Ex world. The story is top notch, and fits great into the series. My only complaint is the loss of the other voice actors. I really enjoyed the different actors in the previous 3 and so losing them was very disheartening. Jay Snyder does a good job, but I wish they kept the rest of the cast. Freedom and Stealth don't have the same feel without their original voice actors. Hopefully they return in the next iterations.

    Story

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    What made the experience of listening to The Lies of Locke Lamora the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was outstanding and brought life to all the characters. The story was something I could never imagine and I loved every minute of it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dialog is amazing and the confidence games they pull are very cool.


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

    I have only listened to his narration of the second book in the series, and he was awesome in both.


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

    Gentleman Bastards

    The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time. Crossroads of Twilight is book ten of Robert Jordan's best selling Wheel of Time series.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crossroads of Twilight?

    I enjoyed the story the most when it was following Mat or Perrin.


    What about Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s performance did you like?

    They were as good as always. I don't think I could listen to these books read by someone else.


    Any additional comments?

    This story was some what of a filler book. It was mostly about other characters in the series and while the story might not have moved to much, it is still an important book to set up the rest of the series.
