Charles Cornick is the son of the leader of the North American werewolves - and his father's enforcer. Anna Latham, a rare Omega wolf with a calming presence, is his mate. They go where they are needed, handling problems in werewolf packs throughout the country. But this time the danger is closer to home, as an enemy armed with witchcraft threatens Charles and Anna's own pack.

This was such an entertaining addition to the series. Once again Anna is a big part in bringing people together including the unhinged. Little disappointing in Bran, but I see why he did what he did. And I was not expecting the "bad guy" to be who it turned out to be. Blew my mind a bit. All in all this series is going great and I am bummed I will have to wait a long time to see what happens next.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Climb to be better than the print version?

I tend to enjoy audio books for the fact that I can continue listening while I get ready for the day and in the car while driving. I can't do that with the written version. The narrator has a very nice voice and easy to listen to.

What other book might you compare The Climb to and why?

It a weird way, Wheelmen, but that was all the bad and negative side of the sport this brings you back to the light.

What about Patrick Doherty’s performance did you like?

He has a nice voice that I can listen to for hours, and did

Any additional comments?

What an incredible story, a young man came from Africa, overcame all obstacles to become one of the greatest cyclists of all time. I love that he does some pretty dumb, but comical things to get where he is. And he can even laugh about his nickname, Crash. This book also inspired me to get out on my own bike and cheer him on to winning his 3rd Tour de France. Lance crushed us all when he finally admitted that he cheated to win, Froome gives us back the hope that it can be done without chemical help.

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of five teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace....

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive. Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them - not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain.

In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

admittedly I was a Haim girl but I really liked this book. I find it interesting that these young celebrities are such disasters. I knew there was some sexual abuse but I had no idea the extent of it. I had no idea Coreys F. had such a tragic upbringing but it makes him who he is now. when I hear this bio it really makes me want to go on a movie binge. some of my favorite movies were made by one Corey or sometimes both.

I love this series. why did it take me so long to start? and the audio is awesome, though with so many stories and characters to follow it makes it a bit harder to follow than reading it would.
I know others have jped ship and joined team Rowen but I still like chaol better.
