City of Gold: The Project, Book 22 (ADULT AUDIO)

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. 

Femlandia (ADULT)

Miranda always thought she would rather die than to have any  thing to do with her moms all female camps.  But when the world goes into another depression and when it means life and death for her and her daughter she gives in and goes, how bad can it be her mom is now dead and the camps are run by her quasi-adoptive sister the one that bought into everything her mom had to say in the herstory.  

This is another thought provoking book by Christina Dalcher.  It has a very interesting premise and some action, but it has tons of suspense and twists and turns galore as you find out no matter how odd all these thoughts are Miranda's mom has really thought of everything.  I love Dalcher's books as they always make you think and there is always a chance these things could happen.

This book is action packed and full of suspense.  Jae is certainly stronger than everybody thinks and awesome with her bow.  This book will have you on the edge of your seat cheering for Jae and her boyfriend (?).  The audio narrated by Greta Jung is awesome and will transport you into the story.  You will be there with Jae trying to help fight and give her advice.  Which ever format you choose I think you to will love this awesome story of the here and the before.

The Gilded Cage (The Prison Healer) (YA)

 In this the next book in The Prison Healer story finds our royals, Tipp, and Kiva in the capital.  Tipp and Kiva are settling in well and Kiva has also gotten a offer to study healing at the most coveted healing school.  All seems to be going well until Kiva's magic starts popping up unexpectedly and is getting harder to hide, so she goes to find her siblings and in doing so sets into motion a avalanche she doesn't want to happen, and might just be the reason for her to lose all she has and the only true friends she has ever had.

This book was just as wonderful as the first, its action is one hundred miles a hour from the start and doesn't let up.  The suspense is just as thick and oh my the twists and turns might just give you motion sickness, only to stop and leave you wanting more.  This is one wonderful book and I hope you like it as much as I do.

To Cache a Killer: The Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mysteries, Book 5 (ADULT AUDIO)

 Geocaching it supposed to be a fun relaxing type of exercise, and generally it is walking and hiking looking for things at certain coordinates, that is until you go with Frannie and find a body.  But what does the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have to with it all?

These books are so much fun I just love listening to Michelle Babb narrate them. The stories have everything you could want in a good book action, suspense, and the fact you can't put it down or stop it until you finish the whole thing.  These books are fun but have the serious side of death to them.  Anyway you go you just can't go wrong with Frannie and the crew.

This is another awesome book by Kwame Mbalia and I hope he keeps on going.  I love these books they are full of action and suspense, so history and many stories from the gods and Gum Baby, who thinks she is a god.  I love hearing the old stories, some I know and some I don't.  So don't make us sap attack you and just give the book a try I think you will like these even if you are reluctant.

Hell Divers VIII: King of the Wastes: The Hell Divers Series, Book 8 (ADULT AUDIO)

When the Vanguard Island become a target X knows that they must find the one place they have heard of that is safe for all.  That brings the Immortal back into action and the divers must go and find a map to this awesome new place.  

There is so much more to this book but I don't want to give anything away.  This is another wonderful book by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and if you happen to get the audio, narrator R.C. Bray does not disappoint.  Bray does another awesome job bringing Sansbury Smith's words to life with his voice.  This book will keep any action junky happy but still has the suspense that always keep books very interesting.  So no matter which form you pick for the book I think you will enjoy it a lot.
