Again, Mr. Tanpepper and Mr. Greene have brought this story out front and alive for the listener of this audiobook. It makes you wonder if all of this could really happen in real life right here, right now. Mr. Tanpepper's story makes you think and his story's is filled with all the action and twist and turns of a super roller coaster ride. Mr. Greene brings the book alive with his awesome narration and storytelling abilities, he puts you right there in the middle of the action and everything that is going on and he might even put you in some spots you do not care to go. This serial is so great I can't wait for more, really I can't wait more, really please hurry.

This book is really good for those middle grade readers looking for the creepy tales like goose bumps, but these come with a Disney twist as this mansion is the one of fame from the Disney park. This book will make a awesome addition to any library even the haunted ones.

This story is one to suck you in and never let you go until it feels like it. With Narrator Doug Greene reading it, it is even worse, he has all the characters down pat and he is so good at this you just loose yourself between his voice and Mr. Tanpepper's story you don't have a chance but to get sucked in and want more and more like a audio junkie. All the action and twist and turns, who is spying on who and working for who. All I can say is thank goodness there are twelve of these to keeps us going for a while, because you will want the next one before you finish the one you have.

In the future when our world is in need of a alternative source of energy and scientist are desperately looking everywhere for one, one set of scientists are looking at harnessing black matter for a new energy, but they don't fully understand the consequences of doing that until the day they disappear. It is just assumed that they blew up. But the daughter (Bria) of one scientist knows her mom didn't blow up, she knows her mom is alive somewhere and when she sees a strange sign everywhere she knows she must do something to find her mom. That is when K-Six comes into Bria and her Autistic brother Dylan's life to help them, and their friends sniff out the time her mom and the other scientist are trapped in and to close the rip.
I don't want to say much else and give anything away. I will say that the first couple of chapters are kind of science laden but once you get through that it is so good, action packed and full of twists and turns and I really hope there is more to come because there are certain things I need to find out what happened with as I am sure you will too if you read the book.

I don't want to say to much for fear of giving to much away but this is a really awesome book, and the narrator, Jeff Simpson, really makes the book come alive with his voices for every different character and the way he pulls you into the story you are there living it with Maverick and his friends. This is a really awesome action packed, twists and turns, kind of book by Ms. Hardy and I can't wait to see what happens to Maverick and his friends, because there must be more?
This was a fascinating historical book by Ms. Wharton and it really shows the reader all the ins and outs of the way things where back then. It is the wonderful voice of narrator Elizabeth Klett that really brings New York and all the characters alive in the book, I don't think it is a book I would have ever read but listening to Ms. Klett narrate this book brought me into New York like I was a bystander, watching it all happen that was so cool, thank you!

This is a story of a daughters love for her father and the fact that it is so strong it can transcend time. It isn’t exactly a sad sorry at all, but a very powerful and uplifting story as her (Tee a 12 year girl) father left her a project (they worked closely together in his blacksmith forge as Tee was his apprentice) to get her through the rough part of his death. It was as if he knew he was going to die, but how? Like I said a very powerful and uplifting story of a love stronger than most. Even though this is actually a short story it packs quite a punch in its small size, it is well worth every page, Thank you Stefan Bolz and your most awesome narrator Arden Hammersmith for bringing this story alive for me it truly was the best hour spent in a very long time, thank you again.

This is a very exciting action packed and suspenseful book with many twists and turns, It asks many very real questions about very real science and beliefs going on today and will leave you thinking what if? If you are in any way interested in computers and the digital world you will love this series, it is not written over anyone's head but takes you on a wild ride through the digital world and spits you out on the other side asking questions even scholars are asking now.

Serafina is back with all of her friends and they must work together to find a way to beat the nastiest, darkest, toughest, mysterious threat yet to them and to the Biltmore estate.
I love this book, as I love the other two Serafina books. The Blue Ridge Mountains and their lore as well as the Biltmore hold special fascination for me, so sometimes it is as if Author Robert Beatty is just filling in some gaps for me. He uses the most exciting characters, Serafina (of course), Braeden, Waysa (the Cherokee Indian), Serafina's mother (the Catamount), and so many more good, bad and some that are not sure which they are yet. Mr. Beatty's use of short, exciting chapters make his books appealing to all readers, young, older, reluctant, and well versed. These books are truly books for everyone.

And only author Kevin Summers and his awesome narrator George Kuch could get me to keep on listening to something that goes from bad to worse and to worse still yet, but hey it was all to those New Englanders, Ayuh!
This really is a awesome book that keeps your interest to the very end no matter what and the audio narrator George Kuch really is wonderful, he did such a great job with all the characters and is just a talented narrator.

This is a very interesting book, with very interesting issues (not to mention the author set it in my backdoor, I don't live that far away from that part of Indiana), the author has everything very well thought out, and his characters are awesome and work so well together, it is hard to say much else without giving the good parts away. If you like audiobooks this one is narrated by Persephone Rose is not to be missed, it is really good, I can not wait for the next two parts.

Oh My Gosh what a wild ride author Saul Tanpepper takes you on, this book starts at the top of the hill of a roller coaster and never stops, even the ending is a cliffhanger (it is a serial after all) and I CAN NOT wait for part two. I had the audio book narrated by Doug Greene who just make the excitement that much more palpable. So Mr. Tanpepper you have me hooked, how many more people will you reel in?

This was one hero, action and suspense filled Graphic Novel. I have said this before, I never read comics as a kid and boy was I deprived. So I am also making up for lost time, and these are the best they are awesome and with DC's rebirth series I haven't missed out on anything since they are starting over from the beginning and also giving back stories on characters, these are the greatest and I can't wait for the next one to come out.
What can I say, but WOW! I can't say much else without spoilers , I mean wow, Killer Croc and Enchantress, I'm not sure I can go much further, Captain or is it General Boomerang? This was really an awesome volume I do not know how you can top this one.

Geek Gurl Rising from Chris Pourteau: How exactly does a superhero get his or her powers?Lightening strike? Bash on the head? From believing you can do something so much you can do it?
The Paladin from Kevin G Summers: Do all superheroes have superpowers or can they just have a big heart? Case in point, Jared Weiss superhero or vigilante?
Photo OP from Christopher J Valin: Black Harrier gets his picture taken on a cellphone while in the middle of a operations and now he needs it gone before the owner can post it on social media and his cover is blown. He manages to play the bumbling boss and delete it off of her phone but doesn't count on her phone being backed up to the cloud. Now the clock is ticking for the Harrier and his sidekick the Red Raptor to find the cloud service and delete the picture before Harriers cover is blown for good.
The Spotlight from Jeffery Beesler: How much of being a super hero is actually being a superhero and how much of is it a act and being a actor or actress. It think the superhero Myna Byrd would be the best one to ask that question too.
These are awesome stories from some of the most talented authors around and if you don't know them, than this is the best way to introduce your self to them as you get a little bit from all eleven of them. Even though I started with one or two I still find more and more that I have not read and love every time I get another of these awesome anthologies.

Dreamer from Hank Garner: What can be so bad about giving a 18 year old a journal, I mean really what do they write about anyways? Their dreams, the real ones.
The Collector from David Bruns: Mr. Rogers and Mr. Smith, hum interesting names, but Mr. Rogers has a very special talent that Mr. Smith needs, at least for a while.
Now Comes the Bringer of Blight from Ed Gosney: When Zach's superpowers make him go bad his best friend, Cody, is there for him. Cody helps to set him straight the only way a normal kid can compared to a super.
Redemption from Ian Garner: All the supers are gone but two. Both bad, but one feeling regrets for all the things he did over the years, and wanting to make amends. The other younger and hoping to become god of earth. The fight is on.
The Arch-Nemesis from Christopher J Valin: Battlegear, the bad guy, and Eaglestar, the good guy, are duking it out the only way they know how, the dirty way, low blows and such. But what happens when one doesn't want to play any more and takes his ball and goes home.
As you can see this is a different side to some of the villains, one you might never get to see, a more interesting side one you don't want to miss.
You also don't want to miss out on a chance to maybe find a new wonderful author out of these twelve top notch writers

This was a very interesting book and I am sure many of us wishes more bullies could suffer amnesia and turn out like Chase but this is not that kind of world but books do let us escape those worlds for a while and that is an awesome thought. I also love how they spent time with Mr. Solway and brought him out of his depression from his wife dying. Overall a awesome book, except for the huge mistake in the first place by Chase, Bear and Aaron thinking they would ever get rich selling a Medal of Honor, jokes on them because you can't sell a Medal of Honor, no one would touch that on with a ten foot poll.

This is a really cool gamer, action book. The VR world that Mr. Ellington has laid out is spectacular, and there is fun, danger, and action around every corner no wonder the kids got hooked so easily I did as well listening to them play the VR game thought the talented voice of Darren Marlar as I had the audio version of the book and if you like audios or want to try one out I suggest this as Mr. Marlar does a heck of a job with the characters in the book and bringing Xaloria alive. This book was great I hope there are more only because I am a total sucker for gamer books and this one was awesome so I'd would love to see more of Jake and his friends in this world.
