    They were the chosen ones - and the ones who chose to be the best. Never before had the United States given so select a group of fighting men such punishing preparation. Now they were heading for their ultimate test of skill and nerve and sacrifice, in a war unlike any they or their country had ever fought before, in a land that most of America still knew nothing about - Vietnam...

    Story

    It took me a little longer to be totally hooked on Griffin's Brotherhood of War series especially after reading his spectacular Corps & Presidential Agent series initially BUT that being said by Book 4 I was totally hooked. I read a few other types of books between book 3 & 4 and discovered within the first few minutes of Book 4 that there are very few authors like Griffin out there who grab your interest and write so elegantly about the victories and failures of events and people.

    This is at least the third book of this series that left me with tears of gladness with a pinch of sadness at the end of the book.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this series as well as any other writings of W.E.B Griffin. I am also a big fan of the fabulous narration by Eric G. Dove.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

    Story

    Action, action, and more action from start to finish. This is a short story with a lot of bang for it's size.

    The Riyria books are written so well that you form a very quick attachment with the two lead characters. Even in this short story you see how different they are on the surface but a lot more alike when you burrow deeper.

    I also really enjoyed the forward written by Michael Sullivan telling about his struggle writing something to be successful and then deciding to write just for himself. Gave wonderful insight to the entire series, original; & prequels.

    Tim Gerard Reynolds brings these characters to life and I am always amazed of the variety of voices and inflections he brings to these stories.

    If you have not read any of the Riyria books, please give them a try. You won't be disappointed though I do recommend starting with the original Riyria Revelations and then diving into the prequels.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…. A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    I really enjoyed that all the regular cast of characters (& some are more 'character' than others) were all present for parts of this book. Seeing all the varied strengths, powers & weaknesses of all of them together makes you feel like there is truly nothing they cannot do as a team.

    It is also fun to get timeline perspective when events from the spin off series' are mentioned & participated in during this book. Just in case you haven't read them, the spin offs are as good as the original series.

    I will continue to re-listen to all the books about Cat & Bones and the 'scooby gang' (human, vampire, ghoul, ghost, deacon, and other) for many, many years to come.

    Thank you Jeanienne Frost for characters that are strong but human, are serious but sarcastic, and are memorable. And to Tavia Gilbert for giving these characters a voice and personality.

    I really, really hope that Ian is next to have a book or more. He is such a scoundrel with a soft heart (shhhh... don't tell him the last part).

    In Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Mentats of Dune, the thinking machines have been defeated but the struggle for humanity’s future continues. Gilbertus Albans has founded the Mentat School, a place where humans can learn the efficient techniques of thinking machines. But Gilbertus walks an uneasy line between his own convictions and compromises in order to survive the Butlerian fanatics, led by the madman Manford Torondo and his Swordmaster Anari Idaho.

    Story

    Oh, to be a Mentat (a human computer) would be an intriguing thing , unless of course you are the child of a person who remembers everything.

    Like all the prequels (original & post) books this one focus' on all the major players and worlds not just the Mentat. I would have liked more focus on the Mentat but was not disappointed by other events taking front & center.

    The prequels give insight as to how events lead up to the original Dune books & beyond. The historian in me really enjoys that.

    I have enjoyed the original Dune books on through all the post & prequels and have read & listened to them many times. This one seemed to leave a lot more loose ends than the previous ones - with the other books you knew there were other questions but they seemed to close more issues than they started. So that means instead of waiting patiently for the next sequel to come out I am a bit more impatient. :)

    It was another very enjoyable collaboration between Brian Herbert & Kevin Anderson and very well narrated by Scott Brick.

Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right. Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

    Cool another book with Coyote, the scamp (and several 4-letter words, but then.....). There are times when Mercy doesn't really want to be 'interesting', especially to Coyote.

    Another amazing entry into the Mercy Thompson series that brings in many of the characters from the past books. There are Coyote and Werewolves and Fae and Vampires and Witches and others Oh My.....

    Lorelei King brings this magnificent series of Patricia Briggs' to life and lots of sarcasm.

The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Whew! Tracking the normal 3 Heroes fulfilling prophecy was easy compared to having 7 Heroes & a few other key characters.

    Another excellent addition to the Heroes of Olympus & Olympians books. In addition to the fabulous story line & writing, I am enjoying the growth of each of the characters in not only their powers but also in their confidence, maturity and their trust in one another.

    Nick Chamian was good, but it did take a little getting use to due to Joshua Swanson's & Jesse Bernstein's excellent narration of the previous books. Nick was a little flat at the beginning but that improved throughout the book.

    What else could Rick Riordan possibly think of to challenge these 7 Heroes & others after this book? This group is going to need serious counseling after this adventure is concluded but.... as the saying goes "What doesn't break you (kill you) makes you stronger".

    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.

    You move into a new building and like most places there are a few building quirks... well a little more than quirks. So what is the average guy to do.... why of course try to figure out what is going on and enlist the majority of the building tenants to help. What a great way to meet the neighbors.

    It was really fun to listen to a story about normal people being thrown into an extraordinary situation. Ray Porter brought the characters in Peter Clines' story to life and gave each of the characters their own voice and personality.

    It is definitely not your standard horror story which is a good thing because I have the tendency to turn all the lights on in the house & hide under the covers when listening to those.

    If you read the first three books you know the outcome but WOW the details leading up to those three books make this & the first prequel hard books to stop listening to (aka put down). Just when you think all is lost (though you know it is not because you read the first three books) something truly inspired (with a dab of insanity) happens.

    Michael J. Sullivan's books with awesome narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds are brilliant, unforgettable, action packed, a discovery of love and self, showing the struggles of the low & mighty and are definitely riveting.

    I would start with the original books and then go onto the prequels as they will have more meaning that way; otherwise you will find yourself re-reading the prequels after you finish the original 3 anyway..... oh wait... you will want re-read all of them again & again.

    This series goes way beyond 5 stars on all counts.

    By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

    I envision a personal ad:
    Tall, handsome, powerful, cranky Highland Laird not really looking for a feisty British wife to completely turn his world upside down and give him a true life partner. Desired traits include someone who can ride bareback, hunt, heal, management his territory, make love with abandonment, start wars for his pleasure and complete turn his world upside down.

    I really enjoy powerful women and men in stories and especially enjoy when they clash and meld. Julie Garwood's story was a fun listen to from start to finish and narration by Rosalyn Landor was superb.

    Audible has found a way to make credits last longer by offering these spectacular deals of the day - the brats. Thank you.
