This gem is hidden so well, I can't find it anywhere. I need the audio book, of course. There are 4 books in the series, and I bought 3. I am now finishing #2, but #3 - Titus Alone - eludes me totally. Any help? I am not paying $35 for a CD. I'll just wait until I can find it at a reasonable price. Judye / maysied

Yes, Charles, there is a 4th book written mostly by his wife.  It's called Titus Awakes by Maeve Gilmore.  I had an extra copy, so it's on my bookshelf.  It is brand new, still in original wrap, and in CD format.  I found Titus Alone for $13, so I have it ordered.  I understand this book #3 is a disappointment, but I can suffer through it on audio.  I do want to read the final book, and leaving out #3 would probably be confusing.

I read the first book sometime back in the dim past. I enjoyed it but I have never been a big fan of fantasy so I didn't want to put in the time to read the rest of the books. I did the same thing with Harry Potter. I read the first one but never read any of the other books. I have never read the Lord of the Rings either. and no Hobbit.

Well, what do you read?  I do only fantasy and sometimes sci-fi.  I read historical romance for 20 years because that's what my mother liked.  We would buy 8-9 at the used book store and she'd take a few and then we'd swap.  I still occasionally read it if it's by a certain author I know and if it's not Harlequin or that type of book.  Recently I read Savannah and its sequel; I have 2 more in that series to read.   Oddly I also like anthropological pre-historical books/like the Gears.


 

TTYL,
