The future of the Ashaiian haven, the newly founded Kingdom of Cael, is anything but secured. Rezkin must seek recognition from the King of Gendishen if his people are to maintain possession of their island home and the enchanted secret it contains. In an unexpected twist, events overtake Rezkin, and he is thrust into a frustrating adventure to seek a worthless prize. He finds that his carefully constructed reputation as an indomitable foe has consequences as others seek to use his strengths for their own gain.

No one is born a leader. But through sheer determination and by confronting life’s challenges, Ant Middleton has come to know the meaning of true leadership. In First Man In, he shares the core lessons he’s learned over the course of his fascinating, exhilarating life. Special forces training is no walk in the park. The rules are strict, and they make sure you learn the hard way, pushing you beyond the limits of what is physically possible. There is no mercy. Even when you are bleeding and broken, to admit defeat is failure.

I listen to all kinds of books, fiction, non fiction, biographies, teachings, historical, fantasy etc. This book covers so many bases! It's a biography of an amazing man, but also some amazing points on leadership, management and above all mindset. I can't recommend this book enough and have a slight bit of a man crush on Ant! Don't hesitate, download it now!

This book explains how money works, how to understand it better and how to protect it once your bank balance starts growing

Starting listening to Rob and Progressive Property a short while ago. Having listened to the likes of Robert Kiyosaki and T Harv Eker (which I adore), I was looking for a British book that I could relate to some of the finer points and tips. Boy, did I find it with Rob's Money book. It has helped change my thinking and outlook, and given me crucial UK relative (don't be put off as all world listeners can learn alot!) strategies that I'm am starting to implement. Straight onto the next book without the usual break for a bit of fiction. I just can't get enough or recommend highly enough! Sam Lee

Druss, Captain of the Axe: the stories of his life were told everywhere. Instead of the wealth and fame he could have claimed, he had chosen a mountain lair, high in the lonely country bordering on the clouds. There the grizzled old warrior kept company with snow leopards and awaited his old enemy, death.

The book that captured my imagination was once again new to me all these years later. The narration is perfect, the story flowing the characters vivid. I had some real moments with this book. Cannot recommend this enough.

Welcome to New York Times and Sunday Times best seller Brandon Sanderson's first collection of short fiction. These wonderful works, originally published individually, have been collected for the first time and convey the true expanse of the Cosmere.

Colonel Joe Bishop made a promise, and he's going to keep it: taking the captured alien starship Flying Dutchman back out. He doesn't agree when the UN decides to send almost 70 elite Special Operations troops, hotshot pilots, and scientists with him; the mission is a fool's errand he doesn't expect to ever return from. At least this time, the Earth is safe, right? Not so much.

Once again a fantastic book, listened to it too quickly and now feel lost without it. Very well paced, full of ups and downs and the witty banter is tear inducing. Can't recommend enough!

Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

I have been an avid audible listener for some years now, with my focus on heroic fantasy (LoTR started it). I have listened to all of Sandersons, Rothfuss, George RR Martin, Anthony Ryan, Joe Abercrombie etc and this one came out of nowhere like The Name of The Wind or The Blade Itself. If you like this genre, give this a listen. A different writing approach to the others but thoroughly enjoyed it. I was gripped from the start and used every moment I could to listen to that extra little bit. The narration of this story is one of the best yet, the characters are clear and concise and you know exactly who is talking. I wish someone had put me onto this series before, I'm going straight onto Book 3!
