Kyrus had lived a quiet life as a scribe until his dreams begin seeping into his waking life. Fanciful tales of magic and battle turn out to be real. In his sleep, he witnesses the adventures of his twin. Kyrus is swept up in the intrigues of those who already know of this connection between worlds.

His knowledge of magic grows until he becomes a valuable pawn for masterminds of plots that threaten empires.

maybe it's just me but I've slogging through this book and stopped listening to it because it was dragging on and on. I just couldn't finish it. the narration was so brutally uninteresting to me. again it might just be me but I couldn't even finish it and it hasn't even been able to capture my curiosity as to how it ends.

Blackwater is the saga of a small town, Perdido, Alabama, and Elinor Dammert, the stranger who arrives there under mysterious circumstances on Easter Sunday, 1919. On the surface, Elinor is gracious, charming, anxious to belong in Perdido, and eager to marry Oscar Caskey, the eldest son of Perdido's first family. But her beautiful exterior hides a shocking secret. Beneath the waters of the Perdido River, she turns into something terrifying, a creature whispered about in stories that have chilled the residents of Perdido for generations.

great book, I remember reading these as a kid. but the narration is a bit bland. the voice doesn't change enough between all the different characters, a bit monotone to say the least unfortunately.

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.
