Powers finally quits his cubical, time clock job to go to work for his best friend and roommate Nick. But is the grass really greener on the other side of the grow lamp? When Nick's secrets come out things get complex and Powers is stuck in the middle.

This book is full of action, twists and turns that will keep you in suspense and hanging on to your seat with both hands at times. Audio narrator Jack de Golia will make you feel as if you are there and a part of Nick's group. This book was wonderful and would have you up past your bedtime to see what would happen next to the guys or in my case with the audio sitting in the parking lot a bit extra before work or at lunch listening to see what happened next. I will be looking for more books by this author and narrator as both were awesome.

As the gang is back and the story continues from the the last book Dragon School 1-5. Amel and Hubric are now student and teacher and Savette and Rakturan are together even with Savette's condition, and they have a dead but not dead dragon. So between these four humans, oh and don't forget the Dominar, and the three dragons, some of which have secrets of their own,. Things are certainly becoming interesting and maybe very important in the future for their worlds.

This is a awesome series that is jammed packed with action and and suspense. The twists and turns will have your head spinning at times in a good way, and you will stay up late reading or in my case take the long way to and from work to listen more to the audio version that was so good as narrator Jigisha Patel does such a wonderful job transporting you into the world with Amel and Raolcan. This is a great series and I can't wait to hear more.

Welcome to the world of Amel Leafbough cripple and dragon rider initiate. Instead of being a strain on her family she decided to go to Dragon School where best case she will become a dragon rider worst case a servant to dragon riders. First main test is picking your dragon, but did Amel pass or fail that test as her dragon actually picked her, as it seems purple dragons do, however, the secret of the purples is that they talk to their riders in their heads. Dragon and riders talking to each will become immensely important in the near future with all that is about to come and Raolcan teaming with Amel gives Amel the confidence she needs to be the purple rider she wants to be despite her disability.

This is a wonderful book with action galore. The characters are awesome, Amel is my new hero, and Raolcan is totally awesome, other character to keep you on your toes are Leng, Hubric, Rakturan and Savette, they all have their roles and they are all important but it will be interesting to see where their roles take them. I was lucky enough to have gotten the audio narrated by Jigisha Patel and let me say it was great I can't recommend it more she has the relationship you would imagine Amel and Raolcan down and takes you to their world. Her voice shapes everything in way that takes you to their world and makes you fell as though you are a part of the action going on there. It was enough I shed a tear when it was done knowing I didn't have the next set yet and would have to wait to get it to find out what happens. I also love that this is a diverse book and we all know we need many more diverse books in our world today.

This is a book about the fur trade and how it began in the Pacific Northwest, it holds a very detailed account of this and is interesting when you think of how it was back then with no amenities and how cold and wet the winters were, not to mention the disease. This was a interesting book and with narrator Bill Nevitt lending his voice to the audio production it was awesome as I could just lose myself in the world of trappers and Native Americans and be there with them traveling the waterways, I love how audios suck you in like that. I can't wait to find more by this narrator.

Josh a boy becomes a man because he has to, to protect those he loves from those that are suppose to love them. But in this cult family that are suppose to be god fearing people, it seems they have lost track of the importance of what is in front of their face.

This is a well paced book with great characters that are somewhat based on a true story that the author lived through himself. The twists and turns will keep you reading and cheering Josh and his siblings on as you learn each of their stories that even each of them didn't know and they where living in the same house. If you are lucky enough to get the audio version narrated by Bill Nevitt than you are in for a treat, as his voice adds just a little bit of something special to the story that will make it unforgettable. This book is really good but I was sadden to hear the part that the author went through any part of this but maybe by spreading the word someone really can help one of these children some day.

When Olivia goes missing on a hiking trip her sister Rachel has to put the pieces together to find out what happened to her. Arnold convinced his disabled mom to put two of their empty rooms up for rent to earn them extra cash, and him some extra footage, and who knows what else in the house. This can be a creepy book and the awesome voices of the character if you have the audio done by the wonderful voice actor Jack de Golia makes it even creeper in parts, he does such a greet job on all of the characters. But at the heart of the book is a murder mystery that you want to help Rachel with but can't. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and rooting for the good guys through all of the action and suspense, and the worst part is you can have a Arnold in your neighborhood and never know it.

Kim's curiosity reaches a fever pitch. Reaching out to the people who knew the Reeds, she ends up with conflicting accounts of their lives and habits. Nothing is making sense, and with every passing day, she becomes less sure of what she knows. An unmarked grave just outside the woods. A series of revelatory dreams. A large, mysterious light fixture hiding in among the trees. When Kim switches on the amber light, she discovers the truth behind the disappearance of Marshall and Dakota Reed. Indeed, she learns far too much.

This was a awesome and exciting installment to the series and one made very much better by Narrator Joe Hempel if you are doing the audio version. Either format is so much fun with this series it reminds me of the old time penny dreadful where the suck you in and you have to wait for the next installment to see what happens to the main characters. These characters are great and work together to bring the story out, while the story itself has all the twists and turns and actions that will suck you in and not let you go just like the Amber light that is shining to bring you in.

I got the first book on a whim and when I got around to listening to it I had to hurry and buy the next one right away and now I am saving to get the rest. This is a book that will keep you up past your bedtime or have you taking the long way home from work so you can listen longer if you have the audio version which by the way is well worth it as narrator Chris Abernathy does such a awesome job you will want all of them as a audio. Craig Martelle brings Alaska alive in this post apocalyptic series where it seems only Alaska is attacked and Chuck and his young family has to survive but to what lengths will they have to go to survive?

This has been my favorite series by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and I suppose that makes this one of the harder reviews to write, for I will miss Creek, Raven and the rest of the gang, some more than others. It is a better sweet end to a tough subject, a subject made tougher because at any point it could come true. This is just another awesome book by a wonderful author that will have you on the edge of your seat and staying up way past your bedtime or in my case taking the long way home from work to listen a little bit longer as audio narrator Bronson Pinchot is great with all the voices for the characters.
