Gluten Is My Bitch: Rants, Recipes, and Ridiculousness for the Gluten-Free (ADULT AUDIO)

This is the totally honest truth about how celiac will change your life and the challenges of eating gluten free will create.  The author provides alternative ways through these challenges and funny stories along the way.
This is a hilarious but brutally honest book I wish I had found when I was first diagnosed with celiac It would have helped to know I wasn't the only one, especially since all I was told was you can't have gluten anymore, that was it me and google against the world and this thing called celiac.  Books like this are awesome and needed, and I had the audio narrated by the author which usually is suspect but this one is awesome, funny, and chalked full of wonderful information.

Serpent's Fury: A Space Opera Noir Technothriller (The SynCorp Saga: Empire Earth Book 3) (ADULT)

Everyone is back and still fighting to regain the Corp from Cassandra, and yes to save Tony before Cassandra can put him through one of her monkey trials where we all know she will win and kill him.  The race is on. 
This has been an awesome trilogy action packed is a understatement, suspense and twists galore and they all fit into the story like a glove, everything works perfectly within the book.  I will  leave you to find out how the story itself works out, I am not a spoiler.  But you will not be disappointed but you know that if you have read the other two books already.

Black Scales Book I: The Dragons of Apenninus (YA AUDIO)

Icabus dreamed of dragons than his dreams turned dark and true.  His village was over run by these awful men and they were going to kill Icabus, so Icabus ran in to the woods the one place he was always forbidden to go.  He made it past what ever the evil thing  was and ended up in another land where he needed to find the dragons to save his village and world. 
This was a good book filled with action and suspense.  The only part I had trouble with was getting use to all the characters especially the ones with names that were so close to each other.  The audio narrated by the very talented Fred Wolinsky with his many voices for all the characters is well worth it.  Mr. Wolinsky can make you feel as though you have been transported right there fighting besides Icabus or the towns people, he really brings this book to life for the listener.

Dragon School: Episodes 11-15: Dragon School Omnibus, Book 3 (MG AUDIO)

Amel is back and determined to save the Dominar, the real Dominar, if she can get anyone to believe her that is.  But in the process it seems it is more important that Savette prove herself the true chosen one.  It is when Savette sends Amel on a mission to Prince Rakturan thing go bad and Amel becomes a slave to a princess who will make your eyes roll. 
This is another wonderful adventure to escape into, in a land far away.  Which by the way if you have the audio narrated by the wonderful Jigisha Patel this is so much easier to do as she paints some of the most wonderful pictures with her voice as she narrates these books.  These two, author and narrator, work so well together.  The book is non stop action and suspense it will have you up past your bedtime or taking the long way home from work depending on which format you have.  It is such a great series with such diversity I am glad to have fallen in love with it.

Merchants of War (BAMF: Broken Arrow Mercenary Force Book 1) (ADULT)

This is a action packed sci-fi, militaristic book, and boy was it good.  We are still up against the Russians and they are still out to turn our own guys against us.  But we have our best going against them, no really our best, because for a while the U.S. was cloning our best so that even if the prime died we would have another waiting in the wings.  This was an awesome book Nate and his team of mercenaries will suck you in and hold your interest until you have found that the book is done and you to will be looking for the second book like me only to find that you have to wait for it to come out, ugh.

Into the Outside (YA AUDIO)

This is a very different type of dystopian book as there is some fighting but not the amount you have seen in other books at least not yet, this is only book 1.  Isabella has grown up in a shelter knowing only what her grands have taught her, until the day comes when some mutants start living right above them literally.  When Isabella sneaks out to learn more about these visitors she also learns maybe what she has grown up believing has been wrong, maybe her grands are not right and have lied to her all these years and the mutants are not there to steal everything they have, that they just want a safe place to raise their families too.  Next thing Isabella knows she is in love with the mutant leader Malcolm and is walking away from her family and leaving with Malcolm and the mutants, and to certain death.
This is such a exciting book filled with suspense and action galore.  The audio narrated by Carlo Libertini was top notch and made this truly a joy to listen too.  It made you feel as though you were there and a part of the adventure either with Isabella and Malcolm or with Luke the brother that refuses to give up.

Silicon Dawn (ADULT AUDIO)

Humans and mechs now are so close people can't tell them apart, but that doesn't mean that the prejudice isn't still there, really now it is worse than ever.  But Adam just goes on and is determined more than ever to show his worth and how much the mechs can help humans and that they won't hurt the humans  Will the humans ever accept the mechs or Adam?
This is a interesting book on so many levels, but beside the obvious this book is full of action, suspense and twists.  Some you might see coming but others you won't see coming, but either way this book will have you reading or if you are lucky enough listening past your bedtime to see what happens next.  The  audio narrated by the  very talented Joe Hempel is awesome he brings the story to life while listening he makes each character individual in your brain and the world they live in so vivid it is amazing, you won't be disappointed in either format you choose.
