Olento Research Box Set (ADULT AUDIO)

This is a great series merging Sarah Noffke's awesome world of dream travelers with a world of twelve genetically altered men to make them dream travelers slash werewolves.  Sounds outrageous, not so much when you read or listen to this series, this author can make anything happen and have it all sound perfectly normal.  Not forgetting all the action and suspense that is also going on at the same time, oh and if you are already familiar with the dream travelers, yes Ren sort of makes a appearance, if you could call it that, he never could leave well enough alone.  I really like all of these books, and can not wait to see what is coming next, this has become a world that I really enjoy escaping too, and narrator Elizabeth Klett has really spun a vision for me of the institute and each of the characters so that I feel as though I am there and a part of the Lucidites, and I would thank them both (narrator and author) for the escape time, it is awesome.

Strangers: The Orphan series Vol 3 (ADULT AUDIO)

Everyone is back but who will last this round of the zombie apocalypse?  These aren't like the ones you see on TV, the slow moving zombies, these are quick and nimble zombies that can jump, run and do things inhumanly possibly, which makes it almost impossible to fight, almost.  But now there is even one more thing against the humans left that are trying to hang on against these zombies and you will have to read or listen to find out what it is. 
This is another awesome action and suspense packed volume by author Mike Evans.  This author is a visionary as he seems to be able to see 15 steps ahead at all times, sometimes into the next volume of the series to make everything work, it is truly a great, wonderful read or if you are lucky to  listen to these books narrated by Jack Wallen Jr. as he has done a exceptional job with these books and the numerous characters, giving each their own voice and character.  This is a wonderful book in either medium if you are a zombie lover so give it a try.

The Policewoman (ADULT)

Sarah is a up and coming policewoman from a military family, and she has been recruited to a narcoterrorism joint task force combining several countries.  But when the drug cartel kills her fiancĂ© and takes her little sister hostage all rules go out the window. 
This is a great military tactic book with the most badass female lead character you will ever want to meet, Sarah is so awesome!!!  The plot can be a bit slow to start so you get all the background you need for the rest of the book, especially if you are not familiar with some of the military procedures, but stick with it, it is well worth it later.  The action picks up speed and does nothing but go faster and faster until the end of the book, and the twists and turns will shake you all up.  All in all I really liked this book and can't wait for more from this author and the rumor is there is more coming.

Artemis (ADULT)

Artemis is a city on the moon, and Jazz the not so perfect, or depending on how you look at it perfect lunar girl.  Jazz grew up in Artemis and became the go to person for those items that shall we say are most difficult to find in the Artesian stores.  Jazz can think on her feet and stay one step ahead of most of the people around her, until they start dying.
This was an awesome book, if you are looking for a continuation of The Martian stop now this one is totally different book and great in its own way.  The characters are cool and diverse but come together, the surroundings are great and add just that much hardship and sciency funness to the book, and his space facts are actually realistic.  I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for this one to hit the silver screen as well or to see what Mr. Weir has up his space sleeve next.

HA! HA! HA! A Supervillain Anthology (ADULT)

Twelve authors have come together bringing their "A" game of villainy to this book and they did not disappoint. Some stories include:

Supervillainy 101 by Chris Pourteau - Chris Pourteau also has two anthologies out that benefit Pets for Vets that are really awesome so if you find you like this format for finding new authors be sure to look for his Chronicle Worlds: Tail of Dystopia and Tails of the Apocalypse. - His story is about Professor Death and his last day and reporter Sheryl Stone and how the Professor (he was a real Professor) want to give his only interview to local reporter Sheryl.  The rest you'll have to read to find out why and what happens.

Tick Tock by Christopher J Valin - Chistopher Valin is the author of the renown Red Raptor series and if you have not tried those you should if you like superhero books they are awesome -  His story is about a villain trying to catch a hero by holding his sidekick hostage, again you will have to read to see how things turn out.

Ghosts of the Flame by Hall and Beaulieu - this duo has many credits to their name and occasionally you might find one without the other but not often they do a lot of these anthologies but what caught my attention was a full length novel they did called Brother Dust The Resurgence, it was so good - their story is about some kids scavenging after the apocalypse for what ever is useful in some buildings when in one building they find some ghosts, sorry from here you have to read to find out what happens.
Steve Beaulieu also has another story in this anthology called POW - It is about a reporter that is being falsely imprisoned with some villains and now he is determined to tell their story, or will he, read and see.

Finally, so I can leave you to discover some on your own, there is Counter Clockwise by Ed Gosney - author of Prometheus Stumbles, the story of how one little plastic turtle can change the world, no not really just seeing if you were paying attention, but it is a pretty awesome story - Counter Clockwise is the story of a baseball pitcher with anger issues, but he finds if he wishes really hard he can turn back time and get a do over, but with power comes great responsibility.

This is just a small part of what you will get inside HA1 HA! HA! so if you think this sounds pretty good please give it a try and find some new authors for yourself.

Nevermoor The Trial of Morrigan Crow (MG)

Morrigan Crow is not exactly what she seems, she is not your typical eleven year old, she is cursed, or is she?  Everyone in her town thinks she is, including her family and that means that on eventide she  will die, as all cursed children do. But her eventide is very peculiar, especially when the stranger shows up, Jupiter North, and takes her away to his town, illegally I might add and their adventures are just beginning there.
This is a awesome book full of adventure, suspense, and more twists than a roller coaster.  This book is only slightly reminiscent of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, but if you are a fan of those chances are you would like this especially if you are team Hermione or team Annabeth.  The wondrous made up world of the free states reminds me of something out of Willy Wonka with its brolly rail and the smoking room (you don't actually smoke in it), and who can forget the mean old Wondersmith?This really is a book you won't want to put down.

Black Moon Rising: The Library Book 2 (MG)

The library exists outside of time, and Marcus is a agent of the library just like his biological dad was before him.  It is Marcus' job to finish writing peoples stories, that usually means there are disturbances out in the world and once Marcus figures out what is causing the disturbance and corrects it, than the person at the center of the disturbance story can be finished.  The disturbance this time is centered in a middle school in Massachusetts, but Marcus needs help so he recruits his best friends Theo and Lu to come along with him, but it is a race they must finish before the black moon rises or the disturbance is permeant, and the story is finished all wrong.
This is a awesome book, full of action and suspense, but what will keep you reading just one more chapter and one more and one more and one more and on and on is the twists and turns that you will never see coming, every time you think you know who it is or who is doing it everything will change. That is so cool, I love the chance to guess but never knowing until the end who actually is who and actually did what, and Mr. MacHale is one of the best at this.  Now I just need to go back and save up for book one so I can let you all know all about Surrender The Key: The Library Book 1, so stay tuned.
