The Transparency Tonic (Potion Masters) (MG)

This is the sequel to the wonderful first book Potion Masters Eternity Elixir, and it is well worth the wait.  This book has just as much action and suspense if not more, you will be reading past your bedtime until you are finished.  Gordy and his friends have teamed up again to fight against those that wish to do harm to innocent people and the elixirists at B.R.E.W. like his mom.  But strange things have been happening, Gordy brewing strange things and not remembering doing it, the new chancellor at B.R.E.W. who has it out for Gordy's mom, and what about Gordy's grandfather? 
This book is for you if you like books  you just can not put down, and if you haven't read the first one yet well there is still time to get it in before this one comes out.

The Similars (YA)

Imagine going back to school after your best friend just committed suicide only to find a guy there that looks exactly like him.  That is what happen to Emma on her first day back at the Darkwood Academy, were the clone kids have been accepted as students for their last two years of high school.  And then you get sucked into this wonderful book and all its twists and turns and suspense, I really don't want to go much into it but there are surprises around several corners.  This book is really good and will have you up past your bedtime reading it is that good, it will suck you in and not let you go until you are done and can breathe again.

The Last Option: The Project, Book 17 (ADULT AUDIO)

Nick and the team are back, Selena is very pregnant with the twins, Ronnie is almost as good as new.  The president has been assassinated and team is on the chopping block, but they might also be the worlds only hope.
This book was as good if not better than the others but the ending is a bit disturbing.  There was  tons of action and suspense, plot twists and turns, that will keep you up past your bedtime reading (or listening) just to see what happens next.  Jack de Golia is a awesome narrator and has made the project team family to me (trust me I would love to bounce some questions off of Freddy now and again), but Ronnie, Lamont, and Nick would be the most awesome big brothers ever, just think of the skill set you would grow up knowing, LOL. Thank you again Mr. Lukeman for so many hours of enjoyment I look forward to many more.

Hell Divers IV: Wolves: The Hell Divers Series, Book 4 (ADULT AUDIO)

Everyone is back and  X is looking for the Metal Islands, a Shangri La of sorts for the hive people to finally live back on solid ground.  But this mission for everyone will stress a lot of people as they find out more about the past in several hours than they have known in decades or more, the question is can they persevere? 
This  was an awesome book, sure it had the action and suspense we are   used to , I mean sea monsters and everything, but this book just had a bit more.  It is hard to explain, maybe it was the more emotional side about the history they found, that is a side you don't often see from the Hell Divers. Maybe it is the  way R.C. Bray delivered that information in this particular volume, Bray is the wonderful narrator for the audiobook version, if you have never tried the audio version you should, he is that good.  What ever it was this book was really good and we will have to wait to see how Nicholas Sansbury Smith can top it.

Dawn of the Storm: A Raina Storm Action Thriller (ADULT AUDIO)

Hal from Kim Creswell's other books is back but in a different role, this time he must go to Columbia to stop terrorist from bringing in a nuclear dirty bomb into the US.  But first he needs  to convince a mother of a 6 year old to go with him, oh did I mention she is probably one of the most lethal operatives in the US?
This book is so action packed  and full of suspense you might fall off of your seat if you are not careful.  Kim Creswell  is so awesome at the story, characters, and putting all those puzzle pieces together, and narrator Sarah Colton really  brings this story alive.  I love Raina and would love to see her again but also I don't want to see her taken from her child.  But Hal has been my guy for so long, it was nice to see him back, I just can't wait for more, because they seem like family now.

Evolution: Age of Expansion: A Kurtherian Gambit Series - The Ghost Squadron, Book 3) (ADULT AUDIO)

Eddie  and Julianna are back doing what they do best, protecting the little guy, being a big thorn in the butt of the Trid, and out to get the brotherhood. However, they find there is a bigger fish to hook and right now Eddie and Julianna always seem to be one step behind.  A lot happens in this the book of the series, they gain another main crew member, there is a Ricky Booby scene that is not to be missed, and of course the awesome authors notes that should never be skipped.
This books is wonderful and keeps up with the others, I don't know how they keep doing it.  The constant snarky banter between the characters just keeps getting better and better as are their books.  I just love them and Chris Abernathy as the narrator is   perfect, he sucks you into their world and makes you feel as though you are really there, it is so awesome, I can not wait for more.

Rise of the Mystics (Beyond the Circle Book #2)

Just think if we could really live in two worlds the one where we are awake and the one where we are asleep and wake in a totally different world and live there until we fall asleep there, only to wake up back here.  Rachelle does that and because of this the government is very interested and since she has found the first few seals she can read minds and a few other things (in both worlds).  When the government tries to stop her by wiping her mind in this world, what will the consequences be in the other world and can she still find the last two seals in time, can she even remember them?
This book is very powerful, and not a easy  one to get through, in so many ways and on so many levels.  Ted Dekker is one to make you think and question how you think and sometimes what you have  been taught, only to come back to basically one thing, but alas you will need to find that for yourself.
