Ok. This is my second book I’m hearing. Last wish being the first. And I’ll admit the story is good. What grinds my gears is when I hear the pronunciation of dandelion as the weed and not the way it was pronounced in the last book. Dandeeleon. That’s how I heard it. Now every time I hear it wrong it throws me off. And now I don’t want to continue hearing. Yes I’m that picky. Problem is it’s the same narrator from last. So......WTF!!!!!!!

Logan Willis’s life is falling apart: he lost his job and found out that his wife is cheating on him all in the same day. Thinking that his world has ended, Logan checks into a hotel and turns on the TV to see that he's not far wrong - radio telescopes have detected mysterious signals coming from inside our solar system, and the source is moving toward us at over 500 miles per second. The media concludes that these signals must be of an alien origin. Still reeling from the news, Logan gets a phone call from his brother-in-law.

A pink princess. A great first book. A frustrating second part as I’ve no idea who these people are cuz after the first chapter it skipped 7yrs. Then the final arc brings light “somewhat” to who they are. A fly boy “ Han Solo “ with a kitty Chewbacca who speaks huttesse. I think I spelled that wrong. Yet now I wanna know what happened in those 7years. Will I see what happens to 20’s. Or the real wraith. Or the point now admiral. Or what happened to chhun. Yes irritating but now I want to know more

Roark von Graf - hedge mage and lesser noble of Traisbin - is one of only a handful of Freedom fighters left, and he knows the Resistance’s days are numbered. Unless they do something drastic... But when a daring plan to unseat the Tyrant King goes awry, Roark finds himself on the run through an interdimensional portal, which strands him in a very unexpected location: an ultra-immersive fantasy video game called Hearthworld. He can’t log out, his magic is on the fritz, and, worst of all, he’s not even human.

On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root - its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn. Fierce rivals for the emperor’s favor, and outspoken adversaries on Imperial affairs - including the Death Star project - the formidable pair seem unlikely partners for such a crucial mission.

Well it’s obvious that plot holes are there. How can a 9 yr old know about 80’s music or about books if they weren’t allow to read book in camps. It obvious the author put that in. It’s like a 9yr old talking and quoting Shakespeare. But other than those annoying input these kids should know nothing about book is good.

Loved the movie. Yes I’m the only one to enjoy it. Loved the book more. So I figured “let me hear it”. Beuller? Beuller? I couldn’t make it pass the first chapter. This guy stinks. Tim Gerald Reynolds anyone? Simon Vance please? I now dislike anyone with the name Lloyd. Sorry. He messed it up for the rest. But great book
