The Science of Getting Rich is a book written by the New Thought Movement writer Wallace D. Wattles. The book is still in print. The text is "divided into 17 short, straight-to-the-point chapters that explain how to overcome mental barriers, and how creation, rather than competition, is the hidden key to wealth attraction."

Hoping to cure his curse and return to his fiancée, Jason Wolfe agrees to command a corporate monster-hunting unit. But the team isn’t exactly what he had in mind.... A priest, a ninja, a zombie, and a guy who looks like he should be working crew on the carny circuit. To be fair, not all of Jason’s new charges are keen on being trained by a werewolf. But ready or not, the team has just been called to a job. Something is snatching children from a small town in southern Mexico. Worse, all signs point to vampires - and a darker, more malevolent force.

His performance of this fast paced series by Brad Magnarella ranks at the top of the audiobooks you will enjoy this year. The drama, intrigue, action and every emotion of Brad’s work is brought to life in this series, and keeps you engaged from the beginning to the end.

Stacy’s life is in free fall. She finds herself clutching a handgun, searching for a sign that tomorrow will be any better than today. Her cell phone rings, bringing an offer that may postpone her soul searching. The discovery of an airplane graveyard containing a dozen commercial airliners is shocking. When the salvage camera reveals them to be virtually undamaged under in the Indian Ocean, theories abound. Who put them there? How are they still in one piece? What reason could there be? Stacy is about to learn the answers to those questions, as well things she’d prefer to forget.

Having a surfeit of super powers is great for battling bad guys and saving the world, as Jim (aka Kid Sensation) is finding out, but less useful in dealing with day-to-day situations - like bonding with his superhero father, adjusting to a team environment, and coping with what might be perceived as a growing rivalry between himself and another teen super. On top of all that, despite having a serious girlfriend, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to a new female super he's just met.

Now, the last surviving Wanderer, Rafe Semmes, must again battle Rowle - the only Wanderer to ever go rogue and turn against his fellows - as Rowle attempts to kick-start Ragnarök, the battle foretold in Norse mythology as heralding the end of the world and doom for mankind and the gods themselves. Joining Rafe in his epic struggle to stop Rowle from opening a gateway to our world that would draw the old gods into the battle is the last Wanderer apprentice, Tess.

Twenty ships have left the gravitational field of the Earth with the intention of colonizing Mars. Each is independent of the other and set to become domed cities upon landing. The mission is simple: go forth to develop the new planet, make it an extension of our home. Well, it sounded simple. No one expected life on Mars to be easy, they are pioneers and that is a type of life that comes with dangers. What they didn't expect was for the settings of one of the ships to be off enough to miss their landing, to miss the very planet they were meant to settle.

The story by M.A.Abraham and performed by Brian Callanan is very captivating. The space exploration, and the suspense of unknown attacking within the ship are compounded by the appearance of the unknown, an alien race with beautiful men and women. Love scenes, of course materialize. The psychic abilities that are revealed add more to the great work. A good listen.

Faster, stronger, and more lethal, he’s the perfect soldier - but not for the US military. To break the curse, Jason must join a war between ancient tribal foes: blue werewolves and the formidable White Dragon. In a battle spanning from the peaks of Central Asia to the valleys of Manhattan, Jason will push himself to the breaking point.
