Dalinar Kholin's Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost. The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Graagghhh ! Meet your Minecraft zombie, Steve. Beware! He's tall, green, and out to scare! Zombie Steve is on his way to meet up with some of his friends when he hears what sounds like a little child laughing. It just got dark outside, and no human in their right mind would be out, much less a child. When Steve investigates, he finds a tiny villager - a child named Beep. Beep is lost but doesn't have enough sense to be afraid of anything!

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshiping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules - but none of that matters anymore. The rules are changing. The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans. Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out - until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos.

If you could sum up Seduction in three words, what would they be?

Breathtaking Addicting Consuming

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did! I couldnt put it down! It was an all consuming book, I thought about it and craved it!

Any additional comments?

This book series is incredible! I have gone through the first 3 books in about 5 days! I found my self smiling all the time and sometimes holding my breath in anticipation. I am dying for the next one!!

When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses - and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he's offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger. Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke's castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul.

London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb.... As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends – and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is.

To be honest I had very low expectations for this book, I read other reviews that said that the narration was terrible. I disagreed though. I loved the book it was very well written and the narration though it did take a little bit of time to get used to I loved it. I finished the entire book within 3 days. Looking forward to the next one.

When everything you've longed for is standing right in front of you, would you find the courage to chase it when you've given up on dreams? Fox shifter Alison Smith gave up on happy endings when her ex-husband walked out, but that didn't mean she was allowed to give up on happy. With four growing kids, Allie is determined to look on the bright side and carry on, even when life seems to keep kicking the girl who's fallen down.

No secret stays hidden forever. A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries. Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract. Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.
