  • Rule of Two: Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 2

    In the New York Times best-seller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man’s journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith - until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order...and create it anew from the ashes.

    What made the experience of listening to Rule of Two the most enjoyable?

    Another great performance by Davis! The characters are believable and, of course, the sound effects are awesome. It's like listening to a movie. The story was a little slower in parts, at least compared with the first book, but overall was a great book. I really loved it!!

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    I absolutely loved this book! Fantastic characters, great plot and excellent performance. The Russian spoken sounded fluent and the voices were very believable. After the initial hook in the beginning, it slowed down quite a bit, but it's worth the wait! Wonderful read!

    Do you struggle to write every day? Many people dream of becoming a successful author, but can't *find* the time to write. The truth is this: Great writers don't have more time than you do. They make time to write. Not only do they make time, they also follow specific routines that help them avoid writer's block altogether. By developing the "writing habit" you'll have the confidence to sit down in front of a computer every day, knowing the words will come. Your Goal:: Write 2,000 Words a Day - Every Day!

    This audio book was very short but jammed pack with information. I listened to it from my desk with a pen and paper to write it all down. I will definitely be reading this again and ordering more books by SJ Scott!

    If you want more great info from this author, he has a blog. I read a post about breaking bad habits that was amazing! Great stuff!

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    I know this is completely nerdy of me to say, but I absolutely loved this book!

    It was my first Star Wars book. It came highly recommended and I can now see why. The story line was believable and you really get to know and understand the characters. There was always enough action and twists to keep the story engaging, but not too many to detract from the actual story line.

    On top of that, the performance was extraordinary! There was music and sound effects that, admittedly, made me giggle at first, but then really added something special to the story. They picked a great person to read the story. Davis's voice was almost seductive and made me want to keep coming back to listen. Each Character sounded different and he was really able to show emotion through his words.

    I must admit, I did not get much work done while I listened to this audio book! Great Read! Your credits will not be wasted!

    You could pray, or meditate, or dream, or visit a shaman, or a minister, or a hypnotherapist. With so many routes into inner consciousness, why write? Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God...to hear the small, still voice pointing you in the right direction...why take the time to write? One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write.

    Would you listen to Writing Down Your Soul again? Why?

    I definitely will. I think I will read this one once a year or once every couple of years as a refresher. This book is a testimony to what keeping a soul journal can do for you in your life and I think regular reminders will be great for my growth as an individual and to help me with my future struggles. I am a writer and the more diligent I am with my soul writing outlined in this book, the more fluent my other writing tends to be.

    I absolutely recommend this book, not only to writers but for anyone who would like to see great changes in their life.


    What other book might you compare Writing Down Your Soul to and why?

    She references the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron (another great read). Both books have extremely effective means of working through writer's block (something I have struggled with).


    What does Jane Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked that the story was read by a woman, since it was Janet's story.I could empathize with what she went through and I felt that Jane Cramer did a good job in expressing appropriate emotion in telling Janet Conner's tale. Good Performance.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I love her testomony on how soul writing made her stronger and helped her forgive. I thought it was a powerful story, one that I will not easily forget! T

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. 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?

    What did you love best about The House of Hades?

    I absolutely love this series. There is always action and the characters grow and develop into characters that you can really love and relate to.


    Did Nick Chamian do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I was not a fan of his performance. He was a little hard to listen to. He sounded like an adult who was trying to impersonate a flamboyantly gay teenager. (I'm really, really not trying to be offensive! It's just how he sounded to me.) But if you can get used to it (as I eventually did) the book is really another great one by the author!


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

    Towards the end you really begin to see the strength of the characters blossom. Throughout the whole series you see their vulnerablility and their growth in dealing with it, but in this book, you really see their power come through. I was very happy to see the characters truly transform!
