Cole Randolph was just trying to have a fun time with his friends on Halloween and maybe get to know Jenna Hunt a little better. But when a spooky haunted house turns out to be a portal to something much creepier, Cole finds himself on an adventure on a whole different level. In the long-awaited sequel to Fablehaven , the dragons who have been kept at the dragon sanctuaries no longer consider them safe havens but prisons, and they want their freedom.
The dragons are no longer our allies Two years after his parents' sudden disappearance, Ben Greenwood stumbles upon a cryptic letter that could shed some light on their whereabouts. But before he can track them down, he'll need to find the mysterious organization that sent the letter: The Royal Institute of Magic. To succeed, Ben will have to navigate a land filled with fantastic creatures and spellshooters, where magic can be bought and sold, to unravel an ancient family secret that could hold the key to defeating an evil the institute has been fighting for the last years.
She also routinely saves Naji, so a damsel in distress, she is not. Notices Add Notices. Suffice to say that if you're looking for romance and cookie-cutter male and female protagonists, you wouldn't get any because this is one of those books where the characters started off as friends, taking their time to know each other first. I appreciated that there is no sex scene, and the swearing is low she's a pirate, so she swears, but surprisingly little, and only 1 F-bomb. The story has a strong hate impression, though it is written for love but it describes hate more than ever. Ah, I know! Any other books about assassin's romance?
Thirteen-year-old Emily Poe has been given the opportunity of a lifetime: A chance to attend the exclusive Audyn School in Manhattan. Identical twins Fifer and Thisbe Stowe have amazing yet uncontrollable magical abilities. When Alex finds out he is Unwanted, he expects to die. That is the way of the people of Quill: Each year all the year-olds are labeled as Wanted, Necessary, or Unwanted.
Wanteds get more schooling and train to join the army. Necessaries keep the farms running. Unwanteds are set for elimination.
Forty years have passed since Jaevid Broadfeather brought peace to Maldobar and Luntharda. But that fragile truce will be tested as darkness gathers on the horizon. The vicious armies of the Tibran Empire have crossed the far seas and are threatening to destroy Maldobar completely. Not even the dragonriders can match the Tibran war machines.
And after an attempt to awaken Jaevid from his divine sleep fails, the fate of Maldobar is looking grim. Christopher Rowe is back and there are more puzzles, riddles, and secrets to uncover in this third novel of the award-winning Blackthorn Key series. Wherever Christopher Rowe goes, adventure - and murder - follows. Even a chance to meet King Charles ends in a brush with an assassin. All that's recovered from the killer is a coded message with an ominous sign-off: more attempts are coming. So when Christopher's code-breaking discovers the attack's true target, he and his friends are ordered to Paris to investigate a centuries-old curse on the French throne.
And when they learn an ancient treasure is promised to any assassin who succeeds, they realize the entire royal family is at stake - as well as their own lives. In the third heart-pounding installment of the award-winning Blackthorn Key series, Christopher, Tom, and Sally face new codes, puzzles, and traps as they race to find the hidden treasure before someone else is murdered. Ray Panthaki was perfect Ray Panthaki was perfect; this seems like an extended audio version of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" as presented by Robin Leach.
It's highly unlikely I will get the next audiobook if Napolean Ryan is reading: I'd prefer Ray Panthaki, but even if he's not on it, I can't keep wondering if the narrator is about to say something about "Champagne wishes", so no Ryan. The first two in the series were very gripping and the narrator brought the characters to life.
This narrator does not. Napoleon Ryan is fantastic.
2 1/2 stars. So, I finally tried the much-recommended The Assassin's Curse after all this time. I recently tried Clarke's adult novel - Our Lady of the Ice - and found. The Witch's Betrayal (The Assassin's Curse #), The Aut Book 1. The Assassin's Curse. by Cassandra Rose Clarke. · 17, Ratings · 2, Reviews.
Author was very lucky to have Napoleon Ryan narrate the story. This book was amazing.
I love the whole book series it is awesome. I have yet to get through this book from the series due to the terrible narration. The first two books were so fun and well narrated by Tom P.
