It’s been 120 years since the 50 or so worldships containing the few million survivors of the human species set off after the planet Earth was destroyed by a meteor. On the Worldship Humility, Sam, a 30-year-old Airlock Operative, is bored. Living in space should be exciting and full of adventure, except it isn’t, and he fills his time hacking 3-D movie posters and holographic adverts outside the stores in the retail zone. Petty thief Yasmine Emile Dufont is also from the WS Humility, but she is not bored....

I like the book a lot and will buy another but the battle scenes. They were too long and detailed. Ugh. I found myself fast forwarding through them. It was still a little slow but well written. Overall... I enjoyed it.

So keeping in mind that I didn’t finish it, it made its point in the first few minutes and didn’t really go anywhere after that. At least for the third or so that I listened to.

Here it is: “Get your kids outside. It is good for them and the environment.” It portrayed an idyllic Swedish culture against a *shocking* American one. <gasp> I am not saying she is wrong but it’s so biased that I was getting more sceptical rather than convinced. I totally agree with the premise of the book but I didn’t have to read a book to agree. So I didn’t learn anything very useful. Meh. Maybe I should have read more.

The new novel by the author of the best-selling The World Walker series. 'My name is Daniel Harbin, and I'm a child of The Deterrent.' What if a superhuman turned out not to be so super...or even human? Britain's superhero, The Deterrent, was unveiled to the world in 1979 and disappeared two years later. The truth about his origins has never been revealed. The rumours about his children - those that survived - and their mysterious abilities have never been confirmed. Until now....

This book started slow and ended great. I almost ‘put it down’ but kept listening. It progressively got more intriguing until I couldn’t put it down. It was mostly unpredictable and didn’t resort to cliches. Yay! A good find. :)

The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it. But when his father and three sons in line for the throne are killed in an "accident," he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving rightful heir. Entirely unschooled in the art of court politics, he has no friends, no advisors, and the sure knowledge that whoever assassinated his father and brothers could make an attempt on his life at any moment.

After a year of fighting across three different lands, Dante and Blays have finally brought Gladdic to justice - and in the process, they've unleashed a horror beyond all reckoning. The enemy is known as the White Lich. He is ancient. He is immensely powerful. And Gladdic believes he will soon enslave all of Tanar Atain. Their only chance to defeat him is to strike fast, before the lich has regained his power. But attacking him directly would be suicide.

So the main things this had going for it were creativity, length and Nicholas Podehl. Otherwise... her female characters were so pathetic. There is gross overuse of alliteration. And some words were used over and over, but shouldn’t have been used at all. Eg “echoic” (a hundred instances of “echoic of a growl”), dubiety, verily, thrice and sanguineous. I won’t be buying the next one.
