Separated from her ship, Major Trace Thakur is stranded on the reeh-occupied world of Rando. The native corbi have suffered beneath reeh tyranny for 800 years, and many have given up hope. But Trace needs the data stored in the reeh’s genetic technology and command center - the Rando Splicer - if she’s to learn how to save humanity from impending disaster, and is planning an assault against overwhelming odds. She’ll need help from the UFS Phoenix, though, which is caught in a ritual medieval battle to change the croma leadership that sees her crew embarking on a perilous journey across a warring desert continent. Should they fail, humanity could be just one of many species to die. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/032975/bk_adbl_032975_sample.mp3.

Without doubt the most unique U.S. unit to participate in the Vietnam War, the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam Studies and Observations Group (MACVSOG) was a highly-classified, U.S. joint-service organization consisting of Army Special Forces, Navy SEALs, Marine Force Reconnaissance units, the Air Force, and the CIA. Committed to action in Southeast Asia even before the major U.S. build-up in 1965, it also fielded a division-sized element of South Vietnamese military personnel, indigenous Montagnards, ethnic Chinese Nungs, and Taiwanese pilots. During its nine-year existence, MACVSOG participated in most of the significant operations of the conflict, including the Gulf of Tonkin incident, the Tet Offensive, the incursion into Cambodia, the Green Beret murder case, the Phoenix program, and the Son Tay POW raid. The story of this extraordinary unit has never before been told in full and comes as a timely blueprint for today's unconventional warfare. Published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army. The book is published by Naval Institute Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Heitsch.

They're powerless without her - she's powerless to resist. The list of reasons why Lexus Wren is the last girl any guy would be interested in is mercilessly long: Her dad's in prison for murder, her mom drowns her sorrows every night at Dave's Dive, and Lexus is just trying to survive the cruelties of high school as a painfully shy bookworm with a bad wardrobe, and a collection of nervous habits. Never, in a million years, did Lexus expect to draw the eyes of two hunky transfer students, Phoenix and Griffin Easton. The troubled brothers are haunted by their own demons, and don't seem bothered by Lexus' tarnished reputation. They're too busy trying to figure out why touching her makes them feel like electricity is frying their insides, and why they're compelled to obey her every command. You'd think having two hot guys vying for her would improve her reputation, but the bullying at home and school only gets worse. When Lexus' problems reach a critical tipping point, the boys are drawn to protect her, and the truth about their powerful connection is revealed in an explosive confrontation that will astound them all. If you like paranormal romance stories with supernatural magic, a love triangle hotter than Twilight, and John Green style teenage angst, you'll be captivated by Flightless Bird! 1.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES, THE GUARDIAN, AND SUSPENSE MAGAZINE • Stephen King calls Jack Reacher "the coolest continuing series character"-and now he's back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child. "Why is this town called Mother's Rest?" That's all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It's a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal. Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there's something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he's plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way-right back to where he started, in Mother's Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine. Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher's rule is: If you want me to stop, you're going to have to make me. Praise for Make Me "Child's Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee. Everything about it, starting with Reacher's nose for bad news, is as strong as ever. . . . The big guy's definitely on the upswing. The guy who writes about him is too."-Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Another winner . . .

Maybe there's something wrong with me. But I can't wait for the twenty-first."-Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker "[The Reacher series] is the current gold standard in the genre. . . . In Make Me Lee Child delivers another Jack Reacher specialty; the total knockout."-Dayton Daily News "Child serves up wingding plots, pithy dialogue, extraordinary background on intriguing topics, and cunningly constructed suspense. But what keeps us coming back-by the millions-is the chance to walk around in the skin of that big guy in the middle of everything."-The Oregonian "A dark thriller . . . Lee Child's Make Me, the twentieth in his wildly popular Jack Reacher series, delivers exactly what readers have come to expect from the perennial bestselling author: interesting characters, tight plots and page-turning action. . . . Readers won't be disappointed."-Minneapolis Star Tribune "Jack Reacher is back. . . . Readers new to this series will find this book a good starting point, and fans will be pleased to see Jack again."-LibraryReads (Top Ten Pick) "The reigning champ ups the ante."-Booklist (starred review)
