The second novel in the brilliant new series from the best-selling author of Prince of Thorns. In Mystic Class, Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy, Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.

Not bad, but not the best. I honestly think the only reason I stuck with it is because the narration is phenomenal.

A new novel from internationally best-selling author Raymond E. Feist. The world of Garn once boasted five great kingdoms, until the King of Ithrace was defeated and every member of his family executed by Lodavico, the ruthless King of Sandura, a man with ambitions to rule the world. Ithrace's ruling family were the legendary Firemanes and represented a great danger to the other kings. Now four great kingdoms remain, on the brink of war. But rumour has it that the newborn son of the last king of Ithrace survived....

I've listened to so many bad fantasy novels over the past year, waiting for a good one and this blew my expectations out of the water. Listened to the whole thing over 4 days. Can't wait for the next book

Crown Prince Aven Lanuken wants something more than a trophy for a future wife. He wants a woman who will be more friend than follower. A queen who will be more warrior than diplomat. He wants a partner he can trust...with a dangerous secret that's kept him trapped in a dark mountain fortress his entire life.

I rarely don't finish a book but this was so painful I had to stop. One boring story line dragged on forever and the narrator just grated on me. Don't waste your time or money.

Whatever the equivalent of "couldn't put it down" is for an audiobook applies here. I listened to the early hours to find out what happened next

The art of love is never a science.: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs The Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a 16-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Yet, Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities and. Don easily disqualifies her as a suitable candidate (even if she is "quite intelligent for a barmaid").

I downloaded this book for the drive between Sydney & Melbourne. Normally I can only listen for an hour or so at a time, I listened for 6 hrs straight! Easy listening and an entertaining story.
