It is safe to say these are not the fairy tales that you and I grew up on, Nikolia Teleshov has brought together fairy tales and legends from around the world to make this interesting and eclectic book so the masses can enjoy each others stories. I suppose he truly understands that we need diversity more than ever right now and this will help. If you are lucky enough to get the audio version than will hear the wonders of voice actor and narrator Fred Wolinsky lend his voice to the different characters throughout the different stories and make each story and character different and wonderful.

This book shows Kim Creswell at her best, as she hits another homerun out of the park with her new series The Assassin Chronicles. I loved this audio, I mean what more could one ask for kick butt take no name FBI agent and widower Victory, government assassin by paranormal powers and in love with aforementioned FBI Agent Derrick, a serial killer "The Wrapper" and much more. There is a ton of action and even more twists and turns and suspense you can cut with a knife, this book has everything. If you happen to get the audio than you will have the treat of listening to Robin Siegerman narrating, and she is good, she sucks you right into the world and you get lost and never look back. These two make a great pair for this series and I hope they stay together.

After 10 years of wandering the outer rim of the galaxy, Eddie Teach is a man without a purpose. He was one of the toughest pilots in the Federation, but now he’s just a regular guy, getting into bar fights and making a difference wherever he can. It’s not the same as flying a ship and saving colonies, but it’ll have to do. That is, until General Lance Reynolds tracks Eddie down and offers him a job. There are bad people out there. Someone has to stop them.

I am not one for opera anything but this is a great audio, it had action, suspense, and twists and turns, but it also had humor and that was awesome! I have been a fan of Sarah Noffke for quite some time and a off and on fan of J.N. Chaney as well but Michael Anderle is new to me and I think I will be look for some more of his book/audios as I can. Chris Abernathy also had a big part in making this audio so great, he is a wonderful narrator and I hope their partnership lasts as he made Eddie who he is and made Pip so awesome. I really hope they come and recruit me as I wouldn't even think about it I would go in a second.

These are six awesome short stories in the true Sherlock Holmes fashion. If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes than these are for you, and if you love audio books than you just can miss voice actor Fred Wolinsky performing this book, it is so good you will lose yourself and think you are in the room with Sherlock and Watson while they are bantering back and forth on one of their cases. This is truly a book/audio not to be missed, don't be left behind when the game is afoot.

This awesome audio following a man, Michael Roberts, through the first 24 hours of the Zombie apocalypse as he is trying to save his family but at the same he himself is turning into a zombie. So this is a very different story than your normal Zombie story, it is new and fresh and really good. Mr. Salzman is a great narrator too and he made the audio so good you should not miss out on it if you a audio fan like me. He can pull you into the story and make you feel as though you are right there, it added another layer to this story.

The way of the soldier is a pretty cut and dry, same old, same old. That is until the day comes when said soldier finds out he is not your everyday soldier but a magic user, green eyes and all. Deinre, the last soldier alive after a surprise attack that takes his best friend life, but he had promised this friend to protect the princess and help to get her back to her home and family. So despite the princesses shortcoming Deinre does just that and at his own expense.

This is a wonderful action and suspense book, with some magic, after all Deinre is just learning, but this is just the start of a great new friendship, and broken bonds. I can not wait to see what happens next in this tale. This book was wonderful with all it's great and personable characters and the different locales that are incorporated into this book you certainly won't be disappointed, as this book keeps you on your toes. I can just see voice actor Stimson Snead weaving the tale around a fire ring after dark one night, it was so good.

Surrounded by close buddies offering toasts and congratulations on the upcoming nupitals, along with sly comments about the bottom line, Sam Horton discovers more might be at stake than a transaction. It takes two to consolidate, but when the other one turns into Bridezilla, Sam's about to experience a lesson in fortitude and empathy. Technology takes a strange turn when role playing ups the ante and makes walking in others' shoes a tough lesson to swallow.

This is one of those books that was fun to listen too then after it was over made you think, wow. Wish it had been a bit longer just to give me a little more to go on but it was still really good and you just keep saying, really? Fred Wolinsky the voice actor for this audio could not have been a better fit, it was awesome to listen to, his voices for the characters and attitude for what was going on was spot on.

If you have a two way radio and think you are the only one left alive would you broadcast over the radio for the heck of it hoping maybe someone out there might hear? What if someone did? What if that someone used your words against you? Eddie our main character is a salesman that is all he knows how to do is talk so that is what he does, but can he man up and deal with what happens next?

This was one action packed, roller coaster twists and turns, hold your breath suspenseful book (with a dog), it has everything, and paired with voice actor S.W. Salzman narrating this book it just doesn't get any better. Salzman makes you feel as though you are there with Eddie trying to help him, at least though this one crisis, or the next and then you are hooked.

Alan just needs to hear a war story from a Veteran for his boy scout badge. Dickie, a dying Korean war Veteran, has a part of him still in Korea with his friend and sons namesake, Ronald. Poor Alan never knew what he was in for when he picked Dickie out of all of those Veterans.

There is not a whole lot left I can say without giving a bunch away, so I won't, you will have to find out for yourself. But I can tell you there is a bunch of action, there is suspense, and maybe some blood involved as well. This is a wonderfully spun tale Brian Scott has written for us and narrated so gracefully by S W Salzman, who kept the reverent parts just that and the exciting part revved up it, was a joy to listen too, Salzman is truly a master at his craft.

Mo Collins sailed all over as part of the crew of a replica pirate ship but now that there are blue skinned zombie things everywhere and he is anchored close to home, the great state of Alabama, he is trying to do his best by his people, and this is his log book as told by Mo himself (especially if you get the audio version narrated by S W Salzman, who does such a awesome job, I wanted to be there with this crew). It was so funny at times and I know that was made better by the narration I don't think it would have been half as funny in my head, some of the situations they got into and then how they got out of them was even better, this book does have cussing in it, but if you can get past that it is a awesome book that has action and laughter all round, especially the audio.
