Broken Worlds: Book One of the Alorian Wars (ADULT AUDIO)

When Anki, a Luthian Marine, and Brindle, a Greshian Ensign, worlds collide things in their worlds become very confusing from what they have grown up being told.  But can they change things and   will they save their people?
This is a wonderful military science fiction book/audio.  This is a highly entertaining book, I had the audio version with voice actor Rebecca Sternberg, who does a awesome job bringing this world alive for the listener and making you feel as though you are there and part of the crew family.  I really enjoyed this as a audio and can not wait for more.

Environmentally Friendly (ADULT)

This a novella so there is only so much I can say without giving it away, but I will say it is action packed and was so much fun to read.  It is worth the time and hopefully the author will use this short as a stepping stone for a full length book later so there can be more detail and more fill in the blanks.  But even with that said you will still like this if you like this kind of suspenseful military/police action type book.

Zenith (YA)

Androma, riding her awesome spaceship around doing odd jobs and acting like a space pirate all the time hiding from her own people,  until the one job she runs into the one person that should be impossible to run into, because he is dead, she killed him herself, is he a ghost? She will not go back to her people no matter what will she?
This was a action packed, non stop suspense, all round wonderful book.  Even though most of the main characters are girls there is plenty of fighting and blood from the Bloody Baroness to make any guy happy.  This is a great diverse book for all and it had me all the beginning and now I just can not wait for the next to see what happens next.

Supergifted (MG)



Donovan is stuck between a rock and hard place.  He did something pretty cool but can’t tell anyone or he will get into trouble, but his friend, genius nerd, Noah was there and decides he will say he did it so people will stop looking for the superkid that saved head cheerleader Megan’s house.  But when Noah lets all the superkid go to his head what can Donovan to do?
This is a really awesome book on so many different levels about friendship, cliques, and acceptance.  It is a book that is good for all kids in the middle grade age group, as there is a wide range of kids in the book there is bound to be one to pretty much fit anyone reading the book.  This book brings a lot to the table from bullying to the pressures that kids put on themselves to perform at the top grade wise and athletically, and these are just middle scholars (I was not thinking of what college I wanted into in the 7th grade, not seriously at least).  I really enjoyed this book and hope everyone gets the chance to read or listen to it at some point, whether you are a Noah, Donovan, Megan, Hashtag or someone else in the book hopefully you see yourself and can figure out what you might change to be a better friend or to help someone become a better friend.

Potion Master: The Eternity Elixir (MG)

Twelve year old Gordy might be the best elixirist ever when he grows up, but first he needs to save his world from the enemies of B.R.E.W. (Board of Ruling Elixirist Worldwide) or at least hold them off until his Mom gets home.
This was a really good book full of non stop action, lots of suspense, and of course plenty of potion magic.  I am sure there will be many references made between Harry Potter and this book but if you ask me, I don't see it, apples and oranges.  I guess you could make a case for anything but I think this is different and refreshing.  It's eclectic list of characters, including Doll, will make this a hit for boys and girls of a wide age range and especially reluctant readers.  This is a really good book and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Trusted: Dragons' Trust Book 1 (YA AUDIO)



Renick, Lainey, and Thane find themselves scrambling to prove worthy to live after rescuing a baby dragon and delivering it back to its family.  Just teens themselves and far from home they never expected to be in this predicament, but here they are mining for nothing in the dragon mines awaiting their sentence.  But when a cave in occurs and they stay behind instead of escaping like the others, will that help their case or just prove to the dragons more of their stupidity. 
This was a really good action packed, very suspenseful, dragon/human book.  I was touching at times and infuriating at others, but so good you don’t want it to end and when it does you cannot wait for the next book to see what happens.  If you like dragons you will like this book, it is not like all the others but is a really different wonderful change that is well worth the time and will have people looking for the next book, and if you are lucky enough to have gotten the audio version narrated by the awesome Fred Wolinsky than you are in for a treat as he must have a million voices, as he has a different voice for every character in the book, he is such a talented voice actor he transports you to Helath Forrest so you are right there with our friends and all of those dragons, it is so worth it if you can get the audio. I for one will be waiting for the next one to come out on audio, if you can’t wait the book and ebook forms are out now.
