This is a action packed, suspense filled wonderful book. Calling all animal lovers this book is for you, it fulfills most all your wishes you have had about your furrbabies. I am really sorry there isn't much more I can say without giving away all the good parts of this book so your just going to have to read it yourself and see how awesome Wild and this book are. Also I really hope this isn't the last we have seen of our trio of friends.

This is a action packed, suspense filled, wonderful book that is filled with excellent descriptions so clear (but not overly word) you will think you were there. This is such a different book, it is not your regular dystopian book,but you will have to wait until fall for part 2.

This is a interesting book, with great characters that have been well developed. The book is filled with a new kind of magic, tech magic and that itself should catch peoples attention, as the action and suspense will keep them reading past their bedtime.
Although this book is a work of fiction a lot of the rhetoric behind the story is true and the hardest part is to know it went on in the U.S. up until 1979, and it is sad to think that the scientist and doctors behind all of this just didn't understand the cruelty they were imposing on people. The author has another hit on her hands, her first book Vox was also wonderful. Her characters are strong, there is action and a ton of suspense that will have you holding your breath. The authors writing style makes it a joy to read even for reluctant readers.

This is a fun book, with lots of action, suspense, and lot of growing up. It is wonderful in the fact that it points out how not to treat a friend, even though you might be growing apart. But it is also a great book of bullies from both worlds and how to help during these times. It is a wonderfully written book with awesome characters made even better by the wonderful narration of Fred Wolinsky, a man of a thousand voices, and he does have a different one for each character. His voice will also transport you to the land of Nesteryia and you can be there with Finn and Audie as they go through all their trials. I really can't wait for a book two and a chance to go back to Neseryia.

This was a amazing book of love in the time of war, a war between two people that has gone on far to long. The writing is awesome, action packed, suspenseful, and has a few surprising twists, what's not to love. I had the audio version with narrator Jack de Golia who brings Mech alive and plops you down right in the middle of all that is going on in Mech's world as he paints you such a wonderful picture using his voice. I hope this becomes a series because I want to know more.

This is a very exciting, fast paced, suspenseful, medical drama, only you do not need to know anything medical to love this book. Dr. Mabry's writing is well paced and the characters work very well together. He doesn't throw a lot of medical jargon at you so everyone can enjoy his books. I listened to the audio version of the book and Mr. Nevitt narration is wonder, he makes you feel a part of the story there with Tyler throughout the whole story. The audio will not disappoint it was real good, but what ever format you decide on I think you will enjoy this book.

After listening to the first Legendarium, I could not wait for the second book to come out after I heard of the writing, and this one is just as good if not better. I love that you can get a snippet of the classics, and some not so classic. The characters are so cool too but I will only say that Mombo and Alister are polar opposites and that leads for some interesting and unpredictable times, the rest of the characters make this book with Mombo and Alister. Narrator Robert Rossmann lends his voice to all of the characters and what interesting characters he makes them, he also sends you the listener traveling to places such as Russia and the wild west to name a few.

This is a suspense filled book with lots of twist and turn so don't get lost down a rabbit hole or you just might miss the action of which there is plenty. I hope the kids can hang on as well and get their mothers back in this book of two worlds, and never knowing who you can trust. I hung on and loved every second of this book and can not wait to see what Margaret Peterson Haddix has in store for the kids in the next book.
This book has a refreshing and realistic take on school shootings, it that it is though the eyes of a survivor, May should have died that day but was spared, and this book takes you though all her grief, panic attacks and all the symptoms of PTSD and survivors grief. It is obvious the author did her homework and got it right , and her notes at the end are also well worth the read. I really liked this book.
This wonderful book was packed with action, suspense and twists and turns that will leave you holding your breath. This book had me captivated and I know I stayed up way past my bedtime until I finished the book. Ms. Roth has another hit on her hands.

This was a great action packed, suspense filled story that will hold any amateur sleuths attention. The characters could come from anytown USA, and that helped me insert myself right in the story and was willing to help the kids.
