He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever, and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

Tim and his friends find out the hard way that you shouldn't question the game master, and you shouldn't make fun of his cape. One minute, they're drinking away the dreariness of their lives, escaping into a fantasy game and laughing their asses off. The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this, but it was actually kind of funny in a gross, juvenile way. I may listen to the next one just to see what kind of other trouble they get into.

Not well thought out and written, Livie would have thought about reviving her mother long before becoming a lightning shaman. Too much time had passed. Plot not well thought out and put together!
Sorry didn't like at all!

Even for a techno-shaman, a kachina in the bedroom isn't exactly part of the drill. When Olivia Lawson wakes to find one towering over her, she panics. A Hopi god visiting the real world isn't just wrong - it's impossible. Or is it? Soon Olivia learns that the kachina is the least of her worries. As she struggles to save her clients, clashes with other shamans, and fends off the attacks of real-world vigilantes, Olivia finds herself in the destructive path of a malevolent ancient force intent on leaving the spiritual realm to conquer this one.

It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom - if he can make it that long without getting suspended again. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer.

I enjoyed RP1 very much. It was fresh and unique. That being said, I was hoping for the same uniqueness in this book, that made that book entertaining. This wasn't it...for me.
I thought some of it was interesting, but it really didn't keep me glued to my ipod like RP1. It was more of the same, but less so, if you understand that.
Also, I wasn't as taken with the characters this time. Except for Zack, the back stories on the other characters were just not interesting enough to make me care if they lived or died.
Zack's "bad boy" act because of the way his Father died, just made me want to smack him and say "grow up".
I looked forward to this book, but now I'll be a little more discerning with the next offering from Mr. Cline.

Characters were interesting enough to keep my attention. Lots of action. Sort of reminds me of the seedier side of Deep Space Nine with the space station back ground and the wheeling & dealing (Quark's). Also a bit of Han Solo in Tai. All-in-all a pretty good romp.

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

Ok, then.
I was already crazy about 14. Now you'll have to write at least one more story centering around the "14"/"Fold " universe just to give me something else to suggest people read.
Keep up the good writing and the great narration, Gentlemen.
