A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: Humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe - a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it. When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!

If you are an Oberon fan, this is the book for you! The whole thing is from Oberon's (a dog's) perspective and the storyline is a bit more simplified as opposed to some of the other Iron Druid books. That being said it is classic Oberon and I would highly recommend it.

A good beginners guide to the Ketogenic diet. If you are looking for an overview and how to begin the diet this is a good place to start. If you want in-depth information, there are much better books out there.

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

I have listened to hundreds of audio books and this is one of the worst narrators I have ever heard. For the main character (an American) it the narrator isn't so bad. The problem is most of the other characters have accents from different parts of the world and he does a truly horrible job.

If you can get past the narrator (it's tough), the book itself isn't bad. It is a nice Harry Potter type fantasy and I would recommend it if they rerecord it with a different narrator.

On June 30, 1908, an object fell from the sky, releasing more energy than a thousand Hiroshima bombs. A Siberian forest was flattened, but the strike left no significant crater. The anomaly came to be known as the Tunguska Event, and scientists have never agreed whether it was the largest meteor strike in recorded history - or something else. Alien artifacts have been uncovered since the 1908 event, and a new star drive is discovered.

I have read all of the Starfire books and expected this to be similar. It's not. That did not make it bad however....

When reading those other novels there was always a sense of disbelief in a Kyle or Cody Riggs. There were arguably super human and always found a way out of whatever deadly situation they found themselves in. As a reader, I just accepted this and although these books were not Shakespeare, it kept the pages turning and was a lot of fun to read.

This book has much more realistic characters (with some exceptions), more character depth, and a more in-depth plot. It reminded me more of a Michael Crichton novel, like the Andromeda Strain or Sphere, than a Star Force novel.

Overall, it was a little slow to get going and introduce all the characters, but once it got moving, I got sucked in, it was pretty good. I would recommend it.

Thanks for reading.
