What did you love best about Star Wars: Bloodline - New Republic?

This did a great job of going behind how people felt about Vader, not just the fear or the awe but explaining how it emotionally affected them, I liked the world building and hearing about the rise of the New Order and how it began.

What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

She is a great narrator, she does multiple voices well and her narration flows smoothly.

Any additional comments?

I want more, this needs a sequel. I liked the characters that were introduced and would like to see what happens to them.

I wasn't sure that I would like this but read multiple reviews as to how good it is, so I decided to give it a try. I loved it. This is laugh out loud funny but also a very good science fiction story. Give it a try, I think you will like it, I sure did.

But amid the hubbub of the city's annual sausage festival, Gretel struggles to find any clues that point toward the elusive thief.

Is there a forgotten spiritual tool that anyone we can all use to heal ourselves - and our world? A type of prayer that transcends religion, mysticism, and science? On Inner Technology of Prayer, Gregg Braden reveals the ability of the ancient Essenes to make miracles through the alignment of body, mind, and feeling, which is the lost "fifth mode" of prayer.

Welcome to the mysterious town of Whitby, where all the monsters and demons of old come to retire and live out the remainder of their spooky days and nights and eat fish and chips on the seafront. There's a strange new landlady in town, opening a B&B by the harbour; a lady with a tall black beehive, nasty scars about her person and a very chequered past.

This was my first exposure to Brenda and Effie. Just today my copy of "Never the Bride" arrived in the mail. I really enjoyed The Woman in the Black Beehive. An interesting tale and we get to see how they met and Brenda is just opening her B&B. I am looking forward to reading the books and listening to the other audio adventures as well.

To the uninitiated, Savannah shows only her bright face and genteel manner. Those who know her well, though, can see beyond her colonial trappings and small-city charm to a world where witchcraft is respected, Hoodoo is feared, and spirits linger. Mercy Taylor is all too familiar with the supernatural side of Savannah, being a member of the most powerful family of witches in the South. Despite being powerless herself, of course. Having grown up without magic of her own, in the shadow of her talented and charismatic twin sister, Mercy has always thought herself content.

Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

Miranda Fenster was known as the Fairy Tale Miss during the one disastrous London season that convinced her she would never have a happily-ever-after. But when her brother's love match is thwarted by the impossibly proper Duke of Kerstone, Miranda sets off to convince the duke to champion her brother's cause for love. Unfortunately, he is too proper to consider love a suitable reason for marriage, and too proper not to marry Miranda when they find themselves compromised.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York.
