Solomon's Gold Project Book 15 (ADULT AUDIO)

Nick and the team are back, Selena has announced her limited role with the team, right before they all go on a mission, this mission should be a easy one just a in and out translating mission, but we all know how that works for the team, and soon we find the body count rising, and the race is on, but who will get there first?
Alex Lukeman did not slow down the pace any with this the fifteenth book in the series, there is just as much if not more action in this book than the first.  The suspense is just as thick as well, it will have you on the edge of your seat.  If you are lucky enough to have the audio version narrated by Jack de Golia you are really in for a treat.  He has way of making you loose yourself in the book and making you feel like you are a part of the team, there with them on the missions.  Jack de Golia makes each character separate, he is such a talented narrator I will be looking for other books he has narrated.

Resurrect A Whitney Steel Novel Book Three (ADULT AUDIO)

Whitney is back with the team, and Nathan has found a way to make trouble for her, Blake and Angel.  He is not only directly making trouble for the three of them it seems he has also now decided he wants to own a super bug that will kill people fast then linger and kill more  for a while after.  A hybrid type super bug, a chimera.  It is up to Whitney and the team to stop him, will it be for good this time, because Nathan is like the proverbial bad penny, he keeps coming back no matter what.
This is the non-stop action and suspense world of Whitney Steel, and she is so awesome and cool when I grow up I want to be her.  I love the characters they are so well rounded and work well together, even Nathan because you have to have a character to hate.  This is a book you won't want to put down or if you have the audio like me you won't want to stop listening, because narrator Rebecca Hansen makes the world of Whitney Steel come alive and you part of the team.

The Slithery Shakedown (Grow and Read level 2)

I love the Nocturnals.  On the bigger kid side there are some multimedia interaction that can be done with the books put out for them, you can see some of those books reviewed here with at least one more to come.  But today I have one for the younger children, The Slithery Shakedown, where our trio of friends, Bismark the sugar glider, Dawn the red fox, and Tobin the pangolin are meeting up for a evening adventure when the blue bellied snake bully shows up to make trouble. 
I love these book because no matter what happens they all work together to come up with a viable solution, one that children will understand, and in these younger children books it also explains feelings that might have been experienced during these times and how it is really ok to experience these feelings, for instance you can be brave and scared at the same time.  Author Tracey Hecht really is in tune with her audience whether it be middle graders, or the younger children just learning to read, and her illustrators are just as awesome at knowing the audience. 

Furyborn (YA)

This story goes back and forth between two girls one thousand years apart, one trying to prove she is worthy to be the sun queen, the other just trying to survive with her brother and those she loves most, but that is proving to be harder and harder each day, until she teams up with a stranger that just might have answers to some tough questions.  It's as the two worlds come together when things really heat up and prophecies start to come to light.
This was a awesome book, once you get used to the characters and the back and forth of the times.  The action and suspense are non-stop, and this book will really have you up past your bead time reading as you just can't wait to see what happens.  This is the kind of book that locks you in its grasp and won't let you go, actually I think I am still locked in it grasp waiting to see what happens in the next book, please hurry.

The 49th Mystic (ADULT)

Rachelle a simple blind girl that lives in a small contained town called Eden because of the fallout, has learned to accept her blindness, but her scientist father looks to every avenue to cure her, and when his latest cure seems to  work with a odd side affect of vivid dreams of another time and land that Rachelle seems to actually be living in when she sleeps, leads to other problems and a prophecy that may or may not include Rachelle.  This book is filled with lots of suspense and much action, and enough philosophy to keep your mind on its toes. This book was worth the 3 year wait.

A Chase of Blood on Steel Hobo Kingdom: Book One (ADULT AUDIO)

This was a really cool book set back in the days when men rode the rails from town to town just to see the country, hopping train cars at their own risk, and one man who decides to take his son with him to see the country.  But there are many sides to riding the rails, it wasn't always good, there where bad gangs, and jumping trains could be dangerous and that is if you got past the train guards, and local police.  This story shows you all the different sides not only of just the trains but that whole time of life. If you can get this as the audio narrated but the wonderful S.W. Salzman and be transported back to that time and have it feel like you are there with Denny and Shanghai.

Murder At The Paisley Parrot (ADULT AUDIO)

This book has it all Mob, serial killer, love, and Marshall in the middle of all three.  This is a action packed, suspenseful, funny at times, awesome murder mystery.  The characters are sometimes eccentric but lovable, and if you are lucky enough to have gotten the audio version narrated by the wonderful voice actor Fred Wolinsky these characters will really stand out and you will be drawn in to life of the Paisley Parrot and maybe even tend bar next to Marshall himself.  This is a fun and light murder mystery with some serious and historic (yep Marshall will take you back to the 80's) facts and details that are relevant about the life of gay men as well as everyone in the 80's.

Inferno (YA)

This is the last book of the Talon series, which is very sad as this has been such a awesome series, but also very exciting as there is a new and exciting series coming out in October that sounds awesome so check back as I have been granted the privilege of reviewing that book as well. 
Inferno might be last book of the series but by far might be the most exciting, action packed and suspenseful of all the books in the series.  People die, dragons die, on both sides and in the end the ones left will have to pick up the pieces and rebuild, if they can get past their difference, and that is a big if.  This is a book that will have you up past your bedtime because you just need to read what happens next, one more page, again, again and again.  These dragons and characters have become friends it is hard to say goodbye.
