Prince of Authia: The Dragons of Apenninus, Book Two (MG AUDIO)

 Prince of Authia: The Dragons of Apenninus, Book Two 

King Furius is dead and his son has fled with only his father's sword and a pendant of the dragons.  He thinks it might be OK when a older dragon rescues him, but poor Dagan hurts a young dragon accidentally and nothing he can do will win the dragons back.  But Dagan refuses to give up and proceeds on the most dangerous trip anyone, human or dragon, might undertake.  He is going to find a way to heal the young dragon if he dies trying and that is a definite possibility.  

This is such a wonderful book and series, with the never ending action and stay up late with a flashlight under the covers reading to find out what happens next.  If you are lucky enough to get the audio narrated by the wonderful Fred Wolinsky than you are really in for a treat, and it is well worth the money at 18 and a half hours long that will go by in a blink.  Mr. Wolinsky can transfer you right in to Authia and you can be part of Dagan's small group, all with his voice, oh and what voices he can come up with for each character.  This is such a wonderful story no matter which format for you choose, and I hope you love it as much as I do.

Zylphia: Ice & Ashes (ADULT AUDIO)

 This is Zylphia's story and she is a very old vamp living in New Orleans.  But her old ways are being disrupted by faeries.  Some faeries are disappearing and that isn't good  especially when Zylphia is the one left in charge when her vampire king and queen go on their honeymoon.

If you thought that author Victoria Clapton would leave her binding world behind you would be very wrong.  This is the same wonderful world we have grown to love, but told from another Vampires view, and not just any vampire but one of the creepy twins.  This is a wonderful book with loads of action and heaping bowl of jambalaya from Gumbo gris gris.  If you like audio books this one will not disappoint as narrator Matthew Lents transforms you into their world and you get to live there for a while.  So which ever form you like best this is a great book and I can not wait for more.

Famka is determined not to let her best friend die at the hands of another time traveler (time hogger) she is in a race, not only to save her friend but to get into the guild as well.  Famka finds out finally what has happened to her family all those years ago and must decide if she can save them as well.  

This book wraps up the Witches of the Horseshoe series and if you don't have book one and two you should start there as it is a tale woven through time and a skeleton. We can also only hope that this series goes on in another section of Famka's life and how it deals more with Charli and what happens next in this story that is waiting to be told.

Of Kindness and Kilowatts (Nothing is Promised Book 3) (ADULT)

 This is a awesome book perfect for our time, of global warming and pandemics.  It shows one mans struggle to do his job but still find the evil behind those who are willing to put themselves first even if it means others die a horrifying death.  There is some science in this book but it will all become clear the further you go.  I can not wait for book four and hope the same characters come back and be added too as this book three did for the ones before it.  I love the characters they are so genuine and kind, they seem to really care about the people they serve.

War and Millie McGonigle (MG)

 Millie is a young girl with big  responsibilities, and a huge grief in her heart.  Millie has lost her best friend and confidant, her grandmother.  Her family doesn't have much money but they live in paradise, San Diego.  But when the war starts coming for the US her fear also rises, but her parents have finally found jobs, but that also leaves Millie to watch her younger sister and brother.  

This is a awesome book about a young girl coming to gripes with what life has given her.  I have to admit I love books that take place in places I have been stationed it makes me homesick for my friends I left in those places but it is still fun.  So that is what drew me to the book but the story caught my interest and kept me captivated until I was finished, and I hope it does the same for you.
