Imagine you had the ability to force your will onto others. Now imagine that those very same powers forced your parents to disown you when you were a young teen. This is Ryan's reality. He wanders the streets day in and out, wondering what he'd done to be so unlucky. On a cold, winter's day, he is confronted by a federal agent, intent on arresting him. Ryan has no intention of going quietly, and knows just how to make his escape. Unfortunately for him, the agent is one step ahead.

I read what the book was about and loved it didn't even pay attention to the length and i paid for it this book could go so far but left me in angry because its so short. its almost as if the 41min was meant to be a free sample of a whole book.
don't pay for this you will be angry to.

I was so looking forward to this and was deeply disappointed.
Susan kept repeating the same thing over and over trying to convinces us what she is saying true.
Ie : why the grubs (labourers) deserve nothing and the claviers (rich) deserves everything seriously we get it move on with the story. i don't need every possible reason why the rich should get more arrghh.

I listened to the first 3 books in 1 week and fell in love and when i saw that book 4 was out i jumped at it not releasing they changed narrators, it was weird at the start but got use to it. The story was good, a nice ending to the series or a good book to follow on from they can go anyway they want.

"En route to polite exile in the Galapagos Islands (field work, to quote the dean of my university), I have found myself marooned on a deserted tropical paradise. Deserted, that is, except for my savior, a mysterious American called Marcus. He is an inventor and the proof of his greatness is the marvelous new clockwork arm he has created to replace the unsightly one that was ruined in my shipboard mishap."

When Phoebe's mom returns from Greece with a new husband and moves them to an island in the Aegean, Phoebe's plans for her senior year and track season are ancient history. Now she must attend the uberexclusive academy, where admission depends on pedigree, namely, ancestry from Zeus, Hera, and other Greek gods. That's right, they're real, not myth, and their teen descendants are like the classical heroes - supersmart and superbeautiful with a few superpowers.

Now, after six years of crushing on the kind, brown-eyed sweetheart of his dreams, Collin is feeling adult and together enough to make his move. Too bad fate, which has never been kind to Jeff, has something else in mind.
