Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

The year is A.D. 922. A refined Arab courtier, representative of the powerful Caliph of Baghdad, encounters a party of Viking warriors who are journeying to the barbaric North. He is appalled by their Viking customs - the wanton sexuality of their pale, angular women, their disregard for cleanliness...their cold-blooded human sacrifices. But it is not until they reach the depths of the Northland that the courtier learns the horrifying and inescapable truth.

#Audible1 This book is the very story that i first saw as the movie, the 13th Warrior. I originally filmed in the wilds around where I currently live, this story attracted me as it was one of the first movies I had seen on the Norse. The movie led me to the book and the book made me a lifelong fan of it. This book is a great story by Michael Crichton and because of the way its written and in the end, the reveal of why it was written, makes it all that much better when you realize what the story is all about

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off.

#Audible1 If you haven't heard of the Witcher Saga then you are missing out. This series follows the main character Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher, in his travels across the Continent in search of employment in his trade; that of hunting and slaying dangerous monsters that prey upon humans. This polish masterpiece was written by Andrzej Sapkowski and is the inspiration behind the three internationally acclaimed Witcher Games and the impending Netflix series. The books are heavily steeped in Slavic lore and are offer a startling insight into the human condition making us ask who the true monsters are and who are the ones who need saving. The world doesn't need a hero. It needs a professional. WORTH THE LISTEN/READ

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin. And a cold-blooded killer. His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil, and not everything fair is good...and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
