Space travel just isn't what it used to be. With the invention of Quantum Teleportation, space heroes aren't needed anymore. When one particularly unlucky ex-adventurer masquerades as famous pilot and hate figure Jacques McKeown, he's sucked into an ever-deepening corporate and political intrigue. Between space pirates, adorable deadly creatures, and a missing fortune in royalties, saving the universe was never this difficult!

There is perhaps no modern psychic more fascinating than Edgar Cayce and no better authors to explore the intricate details and eye-opening stories of the people who received his readings than Sidney and Nancy Kirkpatrick. The Kirkpatricks, with decades of experience and research, take us on a journey into the archives and history of these psychic passages, finding the most interesting case studies and exploring the most astounding results of the Cayce work in so many people's lives.

my childhood was inundated by the tales of Edgar Casey's healings, taking no fee and struggling to make ends meet. while he helped thousands globally. I am both enlighten and touched by the long arm of his compassion. and the historic implications of his effect on American history.

Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job, and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right. Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even postmortem.

How can you not laugh at the dumb stuff we all did as children or watched the adults do around us as kids. Sherman Alexie takes his wry sense of humor to the max on this on this one. It has become a classroom classic and I hope that it gets added to the all-time white kid reading list next to Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird. Yeah, it's that good.

In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

It took me months to wade through this one. But I'm glad I did. It started out slower than his other novels. But the plot twists just keep coming. I kept waiting for the Hyper-religious Zealots to show up with warpaint as they do in Dan Brown novels. OMG, I don't want to spoil it for you. It's an AI thriller. At one point I thought here we go another "We're killing the planet" then a new alien species... I can't wait to read it again.

As a part-time PI and full-time grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister's hair before she wakes up? But "how do I trap not one malevolent god but three?" was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension. There's just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago.

It lacks Verisimilitude so far it's been a grave mistake I'm on chapter 5, and either i don't get the inside joke, or its just sloppy writing. I want to like this series. honestly I do. However I've learned from this down load, dont use your credits, you can't retun the book for a refund. I will finish the book and if i can warm up to it I'll post an apology.

Nope. made it to chapter 25 I just can't listen to this crap anymore. There are a few gaphic sex scenes in it .They are the best part of the story. I can't figure out if its a Supernatural TV rip off, or an actual diary of the author's daily battle with schizophrenia.
