Dragon's Fire

Dragon's Fire by Anne & Todd McCaffrey

Unabridged audio 10 CDs
Anne McCaffrey's fantasy world of Pern is one of my favorite places. I am so happy to see that her son is now writing with her and the stories are still just as magical and exciting as always. Loved this one

Faerie Path

The Faerie Path (Faerie Path series #1) by Frewin Jones

This book was really a very slow starter. The story did not really get going until two thirds of the way. Normally, I would not wait that long for a book to get my attention, but I'd wanted to read this one for so long, I wanted to give it full consideration. I was glad I read it all the way through. It did leave you hanging, so you knew there would definitely be a book two. I will probably read it, but not go out of my way to hurry and buy it.

Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn - Book #4 Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

I was really curious to see how Stephenie Meyer would end this series. I have thought all along that she was writting herself into a corner and could not imagine how she would resolve everything. Though the story was pretty good, I found several faults with this one. But there were also a few very nice surprises. All in all, I think this is probably the weakest book of the series, but a relatively good ending.
