Having learned the identity of her father's assassin, Adare flees the Dawn Palace in search of allies to challenge the coup against her family. Few trust her, but when she is believed to be touched by Intarra, patron goddess of the empire, the people rally to help her retake the capital city. As armies prepare to clash, the threat of invasion from barbarian hordes compels the rival forces to unite against their common enemy.

Listened to both novels in the series back to back. For me it was the perfect balance between scene descriptions and general story line. All three siblings have had very different upbringings. The talents each have is formidable.
A truly great story.

Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

Story was very engaging. The hero is injured and we are left feeling his limitations and pain. Looking forward to trying more novels by both the author and narrator.

Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

Would you listen to Fall of Giants again? Why?

So much information and the characters were so real.

What other book might you compare Fall of Giants to and why?

Ken Follett's books are in a class by themselves.

Which scene was your favorite?

can not even begin ....

Any additional comments?

This is the original study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. Filled with practical information for those first days of sober living, this little book offers newcomers advice about the program, how long it takes, and what to look for in a sponsor; provides in-depth discussions of each of the Twelve Steps and related character defects; poses common questions about AA and helping others, identifying where to find answers in the Big Book; and, features non-sexist language.

Where does Little Red Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First self help book I have downloaded

What did you like best about this story?

Very helpful information but no substitute for the AA Big Book (can not be downloaded to Canada)

Would you be willing to try another one of Jason McCoy’s performances?

Delivery too fast, no time to absorb thoughts. Very poor for alcoholics in early recovery for that reason.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little Red Book?

At this time I can think of nothing specific, but I know as I listened there were a few things that emerged for me.
