Hero or villain. A choice that every Icon, a person born with powers, eventually has to make if they don’t want to live a life of mediocrity. For most Icons the decision is easy. Just do what your parents did. Then, there is Hunter Monroe. A powerful young Icon born from the unimaginable union of a hero and villain. Seventeen years later Hunter is seen as a half-breed abomination by some, and as a certified powerhouse by others. With his time at Purgatory Academy, the premier institute for Icons, coming to an end, Hunter must embark on a two year internship with a supergroup.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. I think... it was essentially a collection of writing prompts. they were all enjoyable and left you wanting more. they were short enough to feel like they could be added to without to much effort with main points already drawn out and ready to be used. while also being self sustaining. if I were a teacher I think I'd be tempted to use this as an outline for an assignment I really liked it personally.

College student Meg Talley survives a violent attack, but when she insists her assailant was a hideous, monster-like creature, she is called hysterical. Journalist Douglas Morgan, private eye Nick Grundel, and horror novelist Blake Corbett, however, have each theorized the mangling, incredible though it seems, might be the work of a werewolf. Now they team up with Meg to peruse an intensive investigation. Neither skeptics nor believers are prepared for the bone-chilling terror and cataclysmic violence that will be unleashed in the night of the January full moon....

Moving house has become a way of life for 15-year-old Isobel Miller; her father is an army major, her mother a middle-aged, pregnant, chain-smoking alcoholic. But the move to the village of Langham could be the straw that breaks the camel's back. To the truculent teenager it might as well be to Timbuktu. The only light in her miserable existence is her grandfather, storyteller elite, her savior. And when one of his macabre tales is mentioned in the local paper, Isobel is drawn into the depths of evil and devil worship.

I tried to listen to this. seemed like it was getting to be a decent tale but I couldn't listen to it for more than a few minutes at a time and had to give up. its recorded with all treble it seems and a slight echo. it actually physically hurt to try to listen to. the narrator seemed ok but the recording made me have to stop listening.

Naaygi found them waiting for her - as she somehow knew they would be - as the cage doors opened, their forward-facing eyes glinting the same hue as the lights in the sky and their dark, storm-colored bodies held absolutely still (even as another animal joined them and brought their number to four). She even knew somehow what they were, that they were a breed of carnosaur the "evolved" humans had called nanotyrannosaurs, the "Pygmy Tyrants", and that one of them, the one with the brand upon its tail, the leader, even had a name - Napoleon.

I recieved this book free of charge for an honest review. time is messed up by aliens or something( I didn't quite decide what they really were) this could have been a cool little miniseries on scifi though the books was quite short. dinosaurs are in the present and a band of humans fight for their survival. it's kinda like the walking dead with dinos instead of zombies. it's a fun listen but honestly it's to short for much to happen kind of a single day journal entry, give it shot if you want to kill a couple hours

Charlie7 is the progenitor of a mechanical race he built from the ashes of a dead world - Earth. He is a robot of leisure and idle political meddling - a retirement well-earned. Or he was, until a human girl named Eve was dropped in his lap. Geneticists have restored Earth's biome and have begun repopulation. But primate cloning is in its infancy; human cloning is banned. Far from a failed genetics experiment, Eve is brilliant, curious, and heartbreakingly naïve about her species' history.
