    Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books won't. While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a time to rejoice in the life you lived together?

    Where does Iron Gray Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this series, this book was not the best in the series, but it was well written as I have come to except from Taylor Anderson. As always this book left me wanting the next book to come out. Generally I hate series because of this fact, but this one has pulled me in. The narrative was what I have come to expect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is hard to answer since they are all great, personally I love the time period these characters are set in. World War two was a hard time for America and this book demonstrates the determination that the men and women of this time period possess.


    Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

    I liked them all.


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

    They better not make a movie, they would ruin the story, it's way too big for the movies.

    Would you try another book from C. S. Friedman and/or R. C. Bray?

    I got this book free, it sounded okay in the description. But I didn't like the story, the narrative was fine. I'm just tired of vampires.


    Has Dominion turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Never really liked this types of books


    Would you listen to another book narrated by R. C. Bray?

    The narration was fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dominion?

    This book was just a bad choice on my part.

The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic.

    Story

    I'm not sure if it was the weak character developement or maybe they were just so two dimensional and paper thin. I like the story, but there were times in it ....well lets just say the author didn't understand everything he was writing about. The characters didn't live up to their job titles. I listened to the book twice so it's not a total waste of a credit, I will most likely listen to the next book, after I am a story junkie. I love a story above all things, but do enjoy a good story with strong realistic characters.

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Story

    This was a fun trip back into dark tower series, but it is also a book that could have been passed up. It doesn't add any new details to the original story. It is not a favorite for me, but it was a fun listen. I will defend King's performance, I thought he did a fine job narrating this story. Are better narrators yes, but I have listened to him narrate before.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple? According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no - but the truth may be much more freeing.

    Wow! This is a powerful book especially if your struggling with both your faith and lust. This book is not the be all end all, it is a map that can lead you from the darkness. I have struggled for years now and this is the first book that put things into perspective for me. I highly recommend this book. I also thank God for putting this book into my hands when he did.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker find themselves caught between the nation they swore to defend and the allies they promised to protect. For even as the Allies and the Empire of New Britain Isles stand united against the attacks of both the savage Grik and the tenacious Japanese, the "Holy Dominion" - a warped mixture of human cultures whose lust for power overshadows even the Grik - is threatening to destroy them both with a devastating weapon neither can withstand.

    Story

    Taylor Anderson has weaved a great story here. There is a lot of detail and thought put into this story and it ranges from the mundane to the obvious. This installment moves the story along as it should and it brings new characters into the lime light while keeping the main characters at the spear point. This is a huge story about a small group trapped in a different world. I love this idea and the way it's being laid out. One of the best things for me is watching and reading how the author has grown in his skill and craft over these novels. If you haven't read the other books start there first and enjoy the series.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the USS Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians - a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik. The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle.
