With magic, nothing's impossible. Everyone knew it was impossible for men to do magic, until it happened. Conryu Koda is a young man of modest ambition. All he wants is to work on bikes and practice Kung Fu. His modest dreams die on the day of The Testing when it's revealed he has wizard potential. When the Department of Magic announces that a male wizard has been found it draws the attention of the Le Fay Society, a radical group of wizards that view men as little better than animals and Conryu as an abomination.

I was looking for some books to replace the Dresden Files or The Iron Druid and stumbled across this series. it sounded like an interesting concept and the characters are not too bad the problem is the writer struggles to make the story so safe for very young readers that it becomes ridiculous. unless you're under 12 don't waste your time

You see plenty of strange things when you're a PI in Las Vegas, but even that couldn't prepare ex-cop Robert Hoskins for what was to come. At first he couldn't believe that all those stories he'd been told as a child were true. But hearing that the fae had taken the casinos over from the mob was something else. Elves, dwarves, werewolves and faeries were just the beginning and battling dark mages, the opening act.

If you are a fan of Dresden or the Iron druid you will like this series. The only issue that I have is with the sound. I am not sure if everyone is having the same problem or if my download is problematic but it sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. Some e at audible should check it out.

More than an audiobook - a workbook. While other books on SEO are either just junk put up to sell consulting services or esoteric mumbo-jumbo by experts, for experts, the SEO Fitness Workbook speaks in plain English and provides practical step-by-step instructions on how to optimize your website to the top of Google, Yahoo, and Bing. It is built upon years of real experience, and the teaching methodology of Jason McDonald, used in his classes in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Stanford University's Continuing Studies program.

I'm constantly looking to increase my knowledge base on building websites and learning more about SEO. Most of the books out there on this subject are for beginners or talk to you like you're a total idiot and I have never heard of SEO. This is the only book I found on Audible that as steps for the beginner steps for the intermediate user and information it goes beyond that. I highly recommend it for somebody who's looking for more than just the basic information. the narrator is great. The book is the right length. most of the other books on this subject or so short it's like a joke. I can't wait for a follow up. there's a huge need for books on the next level. Hint, hint other authors.

Chicago wizard-for-hire Harry Dresden is used to mysterious clients with long hair and legs up to here. But when it turns out the long hair covers every square inch of his latest client's body, and the legs contribute to a nine-foot height, even the redoubtable detective realizes he's treading new ground. Strength of a River in His Shoulders is one of the legendary forest people, a bigfoot, and he has a problem that only Harry can solve. His son, Irwin, is a scion, the child of a supernatural creature and a human.

My name is Mac Brennan, and that's the only thing I can remember about myself. Not why I woke up in a dumpster. Not why my right arm is as black as pitch and covered in glowing red tattoos, and certainly not why a vicious death cult is after me. Actually, that last part isn't true. I know why the death cult is after me. It's because I saved that damned girl from them. I didn't know who she was at the time, but I'd have done it anyway. I just don't like it when girls get beat up; call me old fashioned.

The Thorpes were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many secrets. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room, having committed double-suicide, alarms go off in the executive offices of Eden, Incorporated, the worldwide matchmaking phenomenon that uses its astonishing artificial intelligence to create supercouples and guarantee its customers just one thing: lifelong happiness.

I was desperate for another good series. Would have never picked this one because of the Title and I prefer Urban Fantasy, but a friend recommended it and I took a chance. By the way the title is explained. Great book. Great Series. If you like talented writing, smart characters, believable plot, and a protagonist that can get hurt but mostly kicks A**. This is the book. No doubt.

The world's biggest supercollider is locked in an Arizona mountain. The Torus was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven?

I almost did not read the book because of the name. I was more than pleasantly surprised. Great story. It started a lot of conversations with family, friends and colleges about fringe science, power, deception, the nature of things... One of the best books by Douglas Preston. I highly recommend it to any one who likes a story set in the real world with an added something indefinable.

When a Druid has lived for 2,000 years like Atticus, he's bound to run afoul of a few vampires - make that legions of them. Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers - led by power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus - have become a huge problem requiring a solution. It's time to make a stand.

If you like the Dresden Files you will love the Iron Druid. Great Story, lots of action, well thought out plot. Multi-dimensional characters. So many interesting people, places, and words that I found in the story, that I wanted to look up because there is so much more to the story, if you want there to be.
