Hellfire: Mech Force, Book 1 (ADULT AUDIO)

 When you take military heroes and clone the genes needed for their use in mechs (war machines) but than close down the program what do you do with the ones left?  You let them do what they do best fight, especially when it is Russia and China who have taken over the east coast of America and these warriors are all that stands in the way of their advances.  

This is the start of a wonderful series and I hope I get to hear more of it as narrator James Patrick Cronin did a awesome job, his voice grabbed me and put me there on the sidelines watching as all of this takes place.  This book is full of non stop action and suspense.  There are also some twists that will have you up reading/listening past your bedtime.  This book is a really good futuristic military book and I can't wait for the next one.

A mashup of Harry Potter and the Hunger Games as this group of teen witches and wizards must battle to the death to see which family will have control of the high magick for the next 20 years.  Some families are much more ruthless than others, but the out come will be the same per the curse that makes this battle happen, six dead one victor, or the curse will kill them all.  But do these champions need to accept their fate or can they beat the curse once and for all.

This book is so full of suspense and action you will be up way past your bed time to see what happens next especially once the veil drops.  This book is fast pace once the veil drops and these teens are as cutthroat as the ones of the districts.  There are so many secrets, spells and curses that you can help but fall for these characters.  I hope you like this book as much as I do.

 When the national guard station receives a eerie message from Academy Station, and despite warnings they send a team to see what happened.  What they find is beyond belief, there is no power the staff are missing or dead and everything is torn up.  Now they search to see what could have caused this and for any survivors.  

This was a really good book full of action, even more suspense, and even a few twists and turns just to keep you on your toes.  Narrator Joe Hempel really brings this book to life and though he makes me feel like I am there at Academy Station I am secretly glad I wasn't in that cold.

Gilded (YA)

 This is not your normal Rumpelstiltskin.  When Serilda's tale to the Urlking lands her in a huge bunch of trouble when he calls her on it.  Serilda's crying accidentally brings a visitor to her cell who offers to help her if she helps him.  

This is a awesome retelling but different sort of story than the one of old.  It was a fun book from the start as the children always are asking for more of her stories until the stories get her into trouble.  This book is full of suspense a bit of action oh and secrets, there is something for everyone in this book I hope you find your something as it really is a good book.

All of our friends are back and providing security for a uptight guy (Sir Jeffery) trying to find lost gold in the Peruvian rain forest.  But first they spike the interest of the local terrorist group and what was supposed to be a babysitting job turns into a fight like they have not had before.

This is another wonderful book by Alex Lukeman and I hope he keeps putting out a new project book every now and again.  This book is full of action and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  If you get audios this one, narrated by Jack de Golia, is one not to be missed as his voices have brought these characters to life and tosses you right into the story with Nick and the gang.  Mr. de Golia makes you feel a part of the group, and part of their family, even Burps.

Return of the Dragon Slayers (Dragonwatch) (MG)

With the giants now exposed, and the dragons even more united than ever things look dank for our champions.  It looks like Celebrant might have finally have gotten the best of Kendra, Seth and their friends.

This is one of the most exciting books of the series with non stop action and tons of suspense, even though it is sad that it is the last of the series.  It seems as though I have been reading about Seth and Kendra for a long time and at the same time only a short period.  I am hoping at some point the author will double back to this series and give us a bit more of these wonderful characters, as they have become family now.

The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors (ADULT GRAPHIC NOVEL)

This is a wonderful account and awesomely illustrated book on the battle of Samar.  It shows the heroism, and honor of the sailors that fought that battle against the odds and won.  

If you like Naval history and great illustrations you will love this retelling and never forget the call sign Taffy 3.  It actually makes the learning of history much more fun than I ever remembered.  I got the eBook version and I would be willing to bet that the pictures and story are even better in the print version.
