To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

Initially I was worried that the changes in readers was going to ruin the series. It did slow it down but once I got through about three chapters, I was all in again. Kudos to the author and reader. Loving this series so far and my kids are hooked. Great to listen with teenage kids if you have any.

Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world", he shared the 10 principles he learned during Navy SEAL training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves - and the world - for the better.

As with the first book about the rise fallen stars, this next book in the series takes it to another level. I could not help but play this story at each moment I could have to continue following attentively; whether on the road to work, in the shower, or at bed time. The time and effort put into this story is truly captivating.

As with my first review I indicated that I could not wait until the next book in the series comes out. The narrator does an outstanding job in playing each character and keeping the story moving forward flawlessly.

Thank you both to the Author and Narrator for delivering yet another great story that I can recommend to my friends and family.

Ticonderoga tells the story of Captain William Taylor and his Mohawk scout Degadawidah who are charged to escort Captain Carlton Campbell of the 42nd Highlanders through the dangerous lands of the Huron to Fort Edward, where the British are making plans to march on the French held Ticonderoga. On the journey they meet young orphan Adam Cobbs who receives a baptism by fire in the harsh and bloody wilderness of New York State. Ticonderoga is a musket blasting adventure on the epic scale that The Colonial Radio Theatre has become known for.

The Third Heaven: The Rise of Fallen Stars is book one of a three part series that tells of the fascinating story of the fall of Lucifer. Lucifer, God's perfect creation and who dwelt in his very presence, walked in the midst of the stones of fire. Yet rose up to betray the Lord and bring Heaven itself to civil war. Many tales have referenced this great angelic war but few have sought to explore the dynamic relationships between God and the angelic hosts. Why did a third of heaven seek to overthrow their creator?

What made the experience of listening to The Third Heaven the most enjoyable?

This story brought an unknown perspective into how the war in heaven possibly transpired. Although fiction, the story referenced scriptures in a way that allowed the listener to visualize what possibly happened

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Third Heaven?

The final chapters brought in a climax that kept me wanting to listen to more. On my android device, I played it all night wanting to hear what else would transpire. Although knowing from the bible who wins; it still kept me intensely glued to the audio attentively.

What about Angelo Di Loreto’s performance did you like?

Angelo is a natural reader. He immersed himself into each character he played; changing the tone and mood of the voiced character flawlessly. I only hope that he will continue as the reader for the following series stories of this story-line. Angelo Di Loreto is a must have for the continual success of this series. I will recommend this to all my friends who want to get a flawless story read to them, so they too can experience what I did in this story as a listener.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This story made me look up the Author's website and read a bit more about how he came about writing this novel. I am anxiously anticipating the next book in the series. This first line of three took the Author about 7 years to write and get published. I believe in doing something of this magnitude he should continue seeking direction from God, to make sure that he captures what it is that the Lord wants to share with the listener. I just cant wait to hear whats next!

Any additional comments?

To the Author: Donovan M. Neal; please continue seeking diligently the direction you need in putting to print another deeply written story about our creator that will inspire the reader/listener to seek more about our creator. Thank you.
