Popular author Daniel Abraham’s works have been nominated for the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award. In The Dragon’s Path, former soldier Marcus is now a mercenary—but he wants nothing to do with the coming war. So instead of fighting, he elects to guard a caravan carrying the wealth of a nation out of the war zone—with the assistance of an unusual orphan girl named Cithrin.

What made the experience of listening to The Dragon's Path the most enjoyable?

The pacing in the beginning was static and little hard to follow. Voice actor was great. However once the story got on its way was when the story became quite enjoyable.

Arthur Edward Waite was a profound student of the occult. He was a member of the Order of The Golden Dawn, and made the Tarot accessible to the modern day reader. This classic text for the Rider- Waite deck discusses:-The major and minor arcana.-What each card means.-Reversed card meanings.-How to do a basic reading. The Pictorial Key to The Tarot is ideal for use with the Rider- Waite Deck and the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

This book is very detailed. If you are not a detailed person, do not get this book. I enjoyed how Arthur Waite goes through the history of the tarot cards and including its myths and legends as well.

It is amazing the how the tarot card's pictures developed over the years. If you are wanting a better understanding of the tarot card's and the meaning of each this is a great book.
Alec Sand did an excellent job with narration.

Bad Delivery- Poor Content- Waste of Money

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-01-11

Overall content is wandering about the subject matter and hard to follow. Quality of the recording is very poor. Narrator, Helena is quite obnoxious to listen to. Overall content is poor and subject matter is lacking and the delivery is even yet horrible. To make the book even worse is the atrocious and quite disgusting music that is added in parts of the book, such as in the beginning. All in all, this book is a NIGHTMARE & Waste of time & Good Money!

Please do not waste your time or money!

But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

This story keeps you guessing what power will do to a person. In the quest for power many people will suffer. Their story is heart wrenching. A true hero will deny that they are a hero. They will do everything in their power to help their loved ones.

The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave listeners shaking their heads in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

Many different factions in this story. Author did a good job with creating the stories within the story, such as the half-sin hellish pits to the packman, terrace man and even the mistborn. Their were areas that had repeats in the audio but overall the book was fun.

Terry Goodkind's "Debt of Bones," tells of the origin of the border between the warring realms in his The Sword of Truth series. Ursula K. LeGuin, in a sequel to her famous books of Earthsea portrays a woman who wants to learn the divine secrets of magic in "Dragonfly."
