On an island lives a boy called Peter and his band of merry lost boys, young forever. That is unless they get sick or killed by pirates or eaten by crocodiles or unless - inexplicably - they grow old. For some of them do grow old, and nobody knows why. One of these boys is called Jamie, and he was the first boy that Peter ever brought to the island. Jamie's lived there for longer than he can remember, and it's not all fun and games.

Wow, what a fun and dark story! Told from the perspective of Peter Pan's favorite "Lost Boy", this is a fairy tale version of Lord of the Flies. Many characters you will love, many you will hate, and the rest you end up pitying... The narration is excellent, and only surpassed by the story itself.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

What a fun and suspenseful read! Enough twists and turns to keep everyone guessing, just a good story. The narration is PERFECT, and puts this one over the top, a must-listen!

High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown.

Any additional comments?

The story is great, no complaints there, and the narrator did a decent job... excepting some difficult characters to voice. The main characters all have distinct accents; Two men with Texas accents, a Boston accent, a (female) Irish accent, and several South American accents. Put them all together and it got to be fairly distracting at times.
