There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Something called the “Blue Juice" is coming. For all of us. Luckily, me (Chip Collins), Pete, Nikola Tesla, Bobo, and FBI Agent Gina Phillips are here to kick its ass, and send it back to last Tuesday. Maybe. Or maybe we'll fail, and everyone in the multiverse is doomed. (Seriously, you might want to get that underground bunker ready.) Either way, I've got to get home to Julie and find out – woah, I'm not about to tell you that right here in the book description! TMI, dude.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans.

In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

An excellent story. Its pace picks up immediately, no lengthy investment period for this saga. Excellent world building, the action takes you right through to the end. The story arc beggs the sequel "Caliban's War"; which is my next read...

For some reason it took me a little effort to get fully invested in this story. Perhaps it was the duration between "Fire in the Blod" and "the Adversary", perhaps the abrupt change in sceanery. Regardless, by the time I had finished the first few chapters, I was fully in!

This is only the second book I've read from Erin Evans; however, I am dieing to read the next book. I'm actually planning to go back and read the first two novels and maybe even the second two in anticipation of the fifth.

Definitely not a "Chick-Flick". I am really enjoying this book. Very fast paced & well written. I am indeed on the edge of my chair as I read this. I am feeling quite chilled by the story. This would be a perfect book for a spooky October read; even though, I am reading it in late spring which is the setting of the story.

Wow! How deliciously creepy. I have found that this was done as a PBS special in 1997. I really would like to watch this as soon as I finish reading it. It's on my Netflix DVD list.

OMG! I am so jangled! I had to turn off the story several times during lunch. That is the deal with listening to the story. I can't speed the reading up like I would and was trying to as I was reading along at lunch just now! This story is so well written that I am sitting right next to the protagonist as she is directly experiencing the plot. I need a break from this book, and in 15 minutes I am going to be dying to listen / read the remaining 92 pages. The reader knows that something big is going to happen from the first few pages. What suspense! Three hundred pages upon which the plot builds and the climax just keeps coming – of course a female author! ;^)

Oh my gosh!
It's finished. What a ride. This is by far one of the best books I've read. I was on pins and needles right up to the last page!

January 1937. Jack Miller has just about run out of options. His shoes have worn through, he can't afford to heat his rented room in Tooting, and he longs to use his training as an specialist wireless operator instead of working in his dead-end job. When he is given the chance to join an arctic expedition, as communications expert, by a group of elite Oxbridge graduates, he brushes off his apprehensions and convinces himself to join them.

This is a nice quick listen. Just over six hours. Perfect for a drive or just doing chores around the house on a Saturday.

You may want to pay for this out of pocket as you can digest it in one go and that way you still have your credit for the remaining 29 days.

That being said, it is still worth the listen. Jeremy Northam has given a nice performance on this story. This would be best suited for the Fall as the weather is getting worse and you seem pulled inside more. You will really feel part of this story. While I listened to it on a warm Spring day, I did have to suppress a shudder more than once. Enjoy!

I am hooked! This is the sad part of finding an excellent series like this: I have now completed the third installment and only have two to go with no news of a sixth book! - alas! to have loved and lost...

England during the 16th century has long been a fascination of mine. Short of a time machine this is the best way to visit! Imagine the tumult to the populous King Henry caused when he told the Pope to take a hike! Granted this is the Protestant Reformation and the world was ready for a change, but to live through that change.

I would love to see this series or at least spin-off series surf through the tumult after Henry VIII dies. There is the nine day reign of Queen Jane; Bloody Mary as she tries to subjugate England under Spain; and the touch-and-go start Queen Elizabeth's reign. Then there is Elizabeth's rise beginning the British Empire, upon which the sun never set! The rumors that sir Francis Bacon is indeed Elizabeth's son, etc...

And through all of that societal upheaval and tumult stands the unassuming Matthew Shardlake. (This is very close to the beginnings of the middle class.) It is here where the story gets its sole. Matthew begins the series as an Idealist finding his cause in the reform movements. As the series progresses, Matthew sees first hand how power corrupts. He modifies his philosophy the best he is able seeing good on both sides of the Papist - Reformist struggle. Leaving himself but a razor's edge to walk upon.
