Ryan's life sucks. His brother is a jerk, his mom is sick, and his legs are next to useless thanks to a neurological disorder. Plus the world ended two centuries ago from nuclear war. Now the only escape from reality being the massive VR world of Crystal Shards Online. But even in the game, Ryan's life sucks. He works as a miner, earning not nearly enough to afford the operation that will save his mom. When Ryan discovers an item that grants the ability to dodge any attack, however, he has the chance to become one of the game world's most elite and sought after players: a Dodge Tank.

In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

The Posleen are coming and the models all say the same thing: Without the Panama Canal, the US is doomed to starvation and defeat. Despite being overstretched preparing to defend the US, the military sends everything it has left: A handful of advanced Armored Combat Suits, rejuvenated veterans from the many decades that Panama was a virtual colony and three antiquated warships. Other than that, the Panamanians are on their own.

And the Trith cannot lie...but first Joe has to make it through bootcamp.

What did you love best about Forging Zero?

the thing i liked best about zero is how he dosent know realy anything about being a leader or leadership but learns form his misstakes to become a battle master.

Which scene was your favorite?

my favorite part of the book is when zero speaks the alien tong with out relising what he isdoing then kill's the sentinal with a simple knife

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

i realy wished sasha and munk could have been saved that was a sad moment that turned the story dark, i loved it.

Hal and the Herons have done the impossible. This group of outsiders has beaten out the strongest, most skilled young warriors in all of Skandia to win the Brotherband competition. But their celebration comes to an abrupt end when the Skandians' most sacred artifact, the Andomal, is stolen - and the Herons are to blame. To find redemption they must track down the thief, Zavac, and recover the Andomal. But that means traversing stormy seas, surviving a bitter winter, and battling a group of deadly pirates.

What would have made The Invaders better?

having the rest of the book would be nice. the storie is great but it leaves one feeling cheated by cuting it so short and ending so crudely. i feel like i just got cheated out of my money on this book.

Have you listened to any of John Keating???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

most excellent
