A 1 woman wreaking team who will not let anything stand in the way of justice. A gripping story of the few sent to protect the many and that is just the first half of the book and only the backstory for the second half of the book: the 1 woman meets 2 other ladies (using the term very loosely) and they are as exceptional as she. The bad guys have no idea what is heading their way.

A typical David Weber novel: lots of action held together by an excellent plot but also full of social, economic, cultural, and political issues that give his books such staying power and depth.

If you can put this down you're stronger than me. I was hooked up the start.

Great story and narration. I've got to see if there are more of this author / narrator combination audio books. I was hooked from the start and it didn't let go until the end.

You will never look at table salt the same ever again. I read this book years ago and the narrator does it justice. This is a look at humanity's history and the role salt and its uses in dried, pickled, fermented, and of course salted foods played in shaping that history. No dull history here but salty look at how our diet changed over time with wonderful side trips in recipes and menus. Definitely a fun listen.

The best part of CBC's Mercer Report always was the weekly rant. Good News! Their back and as relevant & insightful as they ever were. Rick brings Canada's worst to spotlight it and give us Canada's best social & political analysis. Long live the alley.

This is the first of 4 books and a powerful beginning to the story of a company from the Bronze Battalion as it tries to get Prince Roger safely home after being stranded on a hellish planet.

This is one fun ( and very thought provoking) short novel. Good cast of characters running wild through a fine plot. Expect the unexpected. Thank God it was short because it was hard to turn off.

Totally irrelevant & outrageous history

Love or hate history, you'll love these stories. Great history told with great humour and an out of control sound effects engineer.
