    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    I read this book when it first came out, I have been patiently waiting for the next book to come out. I decided to listen to the audio version to refresh my memory for the next book. I was not disappointed, the reader did a great job bringing the story to life. The only part that made me cringe was when he did the voice of the sick kid saying what, what....I had to mute through that. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story. An excellent writer!!

    Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    Lee says: "Big fan of Brent Weeks but..."
    "Excellent start of a new epic fantasy!"
    Overall

    I actually paid for this book as I couldn't wait for credits! At first I could not get into the story. Usually I am doing other things while I listen and found that I really needed to pay attention to the story to understand the magic system and the different characters. Once I did this I completely enjoyed this book! It is very different than The Night Angel Trilogy (awesome series) which shows the talent of Brent Weeks. I love the characters realism showing both light and darkness even in heroes. Kip has great potential, love the fact that he seems underrated (chubby,full of self doubt,a bastard) but keeps pulling off great feats and then is confused about how he did it or thinking he did poorly. My biggest complaint is now I have to wait for the next book!

    After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

    Blythe says: "Best dog book ever!"
    "Warning, strong emotions ahead!"
    Overall

    Be prepared for lot's of smiles, laughs and tears. I think this is the best book I have ever listened to!
    Mr Wilson captured the voice of the dog wonderfully and the author W. Cameron has a true gift to write a story that can run the full range of emotions that this story brings out. If you listen while you are driving beware that some people may look at you a little strangely when tears are running down you face.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Intense"
    Overall

    I was a little weary as this was a young adult novel. I decided to try it as it was on sale for a good price. It drew me right into the story, not childish at all! It was so engrossing that when I finished I downloaded the second book at full price just to find out what happened next! Absolutely a book adults can enjoy. The reader did a great job also!
