Things are not well within the Lodrak Empire. An entire city goes up in smoke and ash, and an entire province is slowly being consumed by an ever-expanding cloud of death. But while the humans rally to contain the fallout of this disaster, they are much quicker to pin the blame for it on their elven neighbors to the north. With centuries' worth of strife and bad blood between the two nations flaring up, all out war is rapidly becoming an inevitability.

Well written and funny, the narrator seems to have found his groove after the first few hours of the last book, though near the end you’re going to feel sorry for the innocents, angry at more monsters, and as cheated as our protagonist probably felt at a certain point, highly recommend

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones. The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather's trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime!

It’s funny, but the narrator may be ill-suited to do a comedy, the actors do from a passable to good job in their roles.

Productive people don't have any more time in their days than you do, and they certainly aren't busier than you are. The main difference is focus. A productive person has a way to cut through life's clutter and nonsense and make sure that most of his or her efforts go to the good stuff - fulfilling work, relationships, self-improvement...anything he or she values, really.

Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson ( Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

Wish you had time to exercise? Turned off by the "meat market" scene at most gyms? Or are you simply unsure about how to get started with a daily workout? The good news is that you don't have to follow extreme exercise programs like Insanity and P90X or spend every free moment in the gym to experience the health benefits exercise has to offer. All you need to do is make a simple goal to exercise every day in a way that fits your already busy schedule.

I think this is the second book I’ve listened to by this author and I absolutely love his books, very helpful, not condescending, tells you what he does without making it an ego trip for him (literally had a book once that was nothing but the guy offering terrible extremist health advice and working in how great and amazing he is every few minuets!). Highly recommend.
