One of the the earlier Hill books I read way back in my younger days, I fell head over heels in love with Sam and Hunter in the first book Hunter's Way, I was so glad to see Tori and Sam emotionally growning iin the this book along with the adding of a new friend for Tori; Casey. The deep detective story helps the book also.

It's full of story like how Natalia Portman really got into the role of the Black Swam and gave up her trail up her tailor so they could have a medic on staff for all the staff. And how Christian Bale lost and gain tons of weight for two different movies. Huge amount of weight like he gained 80 pound for a batman movie, after having lost 60 for the movie before. The stories include ones on Johnny Depp, Jack Nicholson, Nicole Kidman, the list goes on and on.

The first Erik Schubach story I listened to and got hopeless hooked on was his Valkyrie Series, Which started with Return To Asgard anyway Awesome Story. Ok back to God's Reunited, it takes minor characters from the Return World series and builds, all lovable characters just not the main two, and puts them square in front in the Greek Olympic Gods World. With Artemis returning home, (she was in Return) .

Love, Lucy is the valentine Lucille Ball left for her fans—a warm, wise, and witty memoir written by Lucy herself. The legendary star of the classic sitcom I Love Lucy was at the pinnacle of her success when she sat down to record the story of her life. No comedienne had made America laugh so hard, no television actress had made the leap from radio and B movies to become one of the world’s best-loved performers. This is her story—in her own words.

I loved the intro by her daughter Lucie Arnez. Then you are off o n the Story of Lucy Ball Life in own words. And how she ended up soil owner of Dezlu Productions which means Star Trek. But before you get too excited remember at some point Trek was sold to Univisal/Prarmont. For the movies. I think the same is true with Mission Inpossion if they owned that too. Or was that an Irwin Allan ? Can't remember.

Molly is growing both internally in her head, and emotionally. One of the team even comment on how she seems more human.
Molly isn't the only one growing and changing. The team is growing emotionally and going in different directions. They have new team mates that are shape sifters They seem to have a new place in the higher-achier of the federation command. The head General seems to have orders for them. To stop a war. It's tough stuff. The middle ends with one of the team in prison. Of coarse Molly will never leave a man or woman down, so she and her team use a crazy plan to get him out. Which barely works. Its on your sit listening. Either to Molly's thoughts, or to the wild plans and actions. Wild Ride, My advise, Strip in and put your hands in the air just like riding a roller coaster and turn the book on. . .

This is a different Jack Ryan than Harrison Ford, Alex Baldwin or Ben Affleck ever played, And the Russian Captain was no Sean Connery. No with it being a book, we are inside the Russian Captains head for a lot of the book and its like there isn't even a cool guy like Jack Ryan until the last half of the book and he is there almost for comic relief just trying to caught up with the main star who is no Jack but rather the actual story of the Sub, The Red October and her crew and how and why each is either in on the scheme or not. It is very complexed novel with many working wheella
