The storm has come! The Angel's Blessings had faded and Kell and Longo find themselves stranded on a lonely deserted island. The world was facing global destruction in the form of a mighty curse that gave never-ending rain to the planet. It wouldn't be long before the population of the world would be decimated, leaving easy pickings for the demon and its powerful master. Kell has no choice but to contact his long-dead ancestors for guidance.

As a continuation of the "Epic Fantasy Adventure" series, this is as great as the others. The narration continues to be excellent, helping you to really use your imagination as you follow the journeys of Kell and the others, especially when you close your eyes as you listen, as I have done. To add to the excitement are the many mythical creatures they encounter along the way, such as the sea fairy and the ape
monster, to name a couple.

I look forward to hearing other adventures with Kell and his group.

This book has a lot of interesting techniques for people who want to give massages to their loved ones, are thinking about having certain massages done to them, or want to learn to become massage therapists. It contains techniques from all around the world and there are warnings given as appropriate for various types of massages.

For potential massage therapists, for example, the author talks about Swedish massage in terms of what equipment is used, how the client is prepared for the massage, what is done to the client, who should not have it done on them (e.g. those who are pregnant), and what you should do if you have specific areas you want massaged.

Mr. McCloud once again authors a great book that gives you so many strategies to follow for becoming a great leader. From the planning stage to finishing up the task at hand, he covers everything, and it was also very well read by his narrator, Mr. Mackey.

Marketing on social media is very important, these days, to get your business out there to the public. This specifically covers marketing and making money on Twitter. Besides the multitude of different tips Mr. McCloud has found to be useful, he also warns you of things like how you are only allowed a limited amount of followers per account, thereby making sure you don't encounter frustrations like not being able to have new customers because you're maxed out on your Twitter account. I think this book goes hand in hand with this author's Facebook book, because both are equally important for businesses to promote their businesses on.

If you're having trouble motivating yourself to reach your goals, give the tips in this ebook a try. In it, the author talks about things like self-regulation as it relates to motivation, increasing your willpower, giving yourself rewards for reaching each step of your goals, and preparing yourself for failure so that you won't get discouraged.

It also covers things you could be doing that are keeping you from being motivated, such as impatience, feeling overwhelmed, and being unhealthy. For those the author tells you what to do to change those motivation killers.

Highly recommended for those who often find themselves not be able to get things done that they want to get done.

Forget those diet plans. Instead, try Mr. McCloud's easier options to weight loss, that include things like upgrading your plain, boring salad with things like chicken, because eating a plain salad will simply leave you feeling hungry. Other ideas include having a bottle of hot sauce handy to add to things like fish, eating in places like the kitchen or dining room to avoid overeating, the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, and eating more slowly in order to feel full longer.

I want to lose weight but don't want to try an actual diet, so I'm happy to try many of the tips Mr. McCloud offers instead.

I don't want to play golf, but I am a fan of professional golf and want to understand the strategies my favorite professional golfers utilize to play golf and succeed at it. This book indeed has those but it also teaches you how to play golf, such as how to properly grip the golf club and how to do a correct stance while getting ready to swing that club.

The strategies suggested by Mr. McCloud include watching videos of other players' swings to figure out what might work best for you and then practice it until you succeed at it, taking several hard looks at where you want the ball to hit before taking that swing, and keeping a golf diary in order to note how you're playing and what led to certain results.

Highly recommended for those who do indeed want to learn to play golf and succeed at it in addition to those who already play and simply want to play better. I indeed learned a lot about what pros do that make them play it so well.

This book has lots of great ways to save money, as well as earn extra money to save up, including self-investment, building a checking and/or savings account, and how to invest in stocks, bonds, other businesses, and more. Some of the tips include links to youtube videos, which the narrator reads out to you (so have paper ready to take notes!).

I think this book goes along great with Mr. McCloud's "Money: The Top 100 Best Ways to Make and Manage Money", and the tips from both should be followed in order to positively get a good savings account going.

Also, while most other smoothie books consist of fruit ingredients, there are vegetable smoothies in this, too, such as the tomato and onion smoothie, which also has red pper and other ingredients.

While it seems like a lot of work for us to get a job within 30 days, this audio book does a good job of giving tips to motivate you to working harder to get that new job, at least. There are, of course, the typical things like not badmouthing your former employer to your potential employer are presented, but there are also things like how to learn from your mistakes when you have gone through that interview and not gotten hired as a result.

It's a useful audio book not only for those who are new to looking for a job, but also those who either currently have one but are looking for a new one, or have gotten laid off or fired from one and is looking for a replacement.
