Russia's Ural Mountains hide a deadly secret: a supernatural portal to the country of the vampires. Soviet scientists and ESP-powered spies, in a secret military base, study the portal - and the powerfully evil creatures that emerge from it, intent on ravaging mankind. When Jazz Simmons, a British agent sent to infiltrate the base, is captured by the KGB espionage squad and forced through the portal, his last message tells Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, that the vampires are preparing for a mass invasion.

Loved this books the first and second time and now listening to them is every bit as good. Hope they continue making the rest of the series. This book is just the start of the next stage of the epic saga.

It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.

Very short chapters made it a struggle to get into at first but once the main plot gets going and plagueis and sidius appear it starts to change get gear and turn into a very good listen. Although it sheds very little more of mauls charector that we hadn't seen in the cartoons or comics it does have a few interesting canon points if you can spot them.

The Empire's master plan is under way. The New Republic is on the verge of civil war and the rumor that the legendary Admiral Thrawn has returned from the dead is rallying the Imperial forces. Now Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and their allies face the challenge of their lives. They must infiltrate a hidden fortress filled with Imperial fanatics, rendezvous with a double-dealing Imperial commander, and journey into enemy territory to learn the identity of those responsible for an act of unthinkable genocide. But most important of all is the truth about Thrawn.

After the original Thrawn trilogy being so brilliant I was a little dubious about another story involving the blue genius. Well I couldn't be happier for diving in. Possibly the best in the series. So much going on, so many angles, so many new arcs not explored before. The only problem I have now, is where do I go from here. There are so many books I've not read or heard yet now I know roughly how it all ends for the old EU (now non canon).
