  • "Good book for Neil Gaiman fans."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book has a lot in common with the Neverwhere novel from Neil Gaiman. If you liked Neverwhere you will like this novel as well. The world is dark and rich. I am not a fan of books about faeries but in this case the author makes it fun and interesting.

    It is a novel that is operating on two levels at once. On one hand you have the protagonist trying to deal with all this life changing supernatural drama while dealing with mundane problems such as a shrill ex-wife and a teenage daughter. This is much the same way the supernatural world works alongside and under the real world of London.

    There is also a nice romance that occurs throughout the novel. It is well done and adds to the story rather than taking away from it. The narrarator has a pleasing voice and a decent range, but he over emotes a good bit and thus 3 stars instead of four for the narraration. It really doesn't harm the experience and it is more of a personal pet peve more than anything.

    One thing to note is that this is the first of several books in this series. The problem is that currently the number 3 book is due for release in audio format soon but the second novel is nowhere in sight. This is a good series, but if you want to listen to this one rather than read I would wait until the second novel is on audio as the books build on each other and should be read in order.

  • "A must for fans of the Night Watch ..."

    Story

    This is the 5th book in the night watch series. If you are a fan you definitely want to spend a credit on this one. While not as epic in scope as the previous books, it is a solid read that is thoroughly enjoyable.

    You can really tell the difference that this is a Russian author as opposed to the British and American authors I normally read. The book and series is quite dark in places, often with a strong streak of nihilism included. The endings in this series are usually not "happy" but are satisfying.

    The world and characters are well developed to the point you almost feel like if you were in Russia you might run into them. The stories in this series are compared to chess matches between the higher powers with the protagonist trying to find his way through and survive. He never really knows what is going on for certain until the endgame. I really like that level of mystery.

    The narrarator does a great job, but moves between Russian accents in conversation and a standard almost monotone English even though all the characters are Russian. This takes a bit of getting used to and leads to adding and dropping of accents at times. It doesn't impact the performance but it was noticable to me.

    This novel could be read stand-alone but the reader will enjoy it much more and get a fuller experience by listening to the books in order. This one is definitely worth spending a credit on and I hope the author keeps the series going.

    Story

    This book is to urban fantasy what Lord of the Rings is to epic fantasy in my opinion. I defy you to read this one and not note at least a dozen ways other urban fantasy authors have lifted from Gaiman. This is a great fantasy world and an excellent read. The amazing thing is the author reads this one himself and does a great job. Usually, the author reading his own work is the kiss of death but Gaiman pulls it off. This one is definitely worth spending a credit.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

  • Primal Law: Alpha Pack Series #1

    "Mediocre shifter story."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Unfortunately this was one of those books that just didn't float my boat. I like the background that was created, but the characters just didn't get me all that excited. Although I didn't hate the characters, I just didn't like them overly and was debating to even finish the book. I mean the first sex scene had Jax smelling of another woman, and like an idiot Kiara didn't even blink an eye when she jumped into bed with him. It didn't feel sexy to me, but a wham, bam thank you ma'am. The second half of the book was an improvement and I might be willing to try the next book, but I will probably wait for a sale. Of course I have read/listen to much worse and stayed the course. The narrator was wrong for the part, although she did a good job it just seemed like she wasn't the right fit for these characters. I do like shifter books and I recommend Suzanne Wright, Thea Harrison and Nalini Singh.

  • Rogue Rider

    Story

    I have really enjoyed this series. Don't start with this one though, start with the Demonica series first. I wasn't sure how this one was going to end up and was pleasantly surprised how well it work out. Now I am impatiently waiting for Reaver's book which I am hoping isn't going to be the last. Narrator is good. Other series to consider if you like this one is Gena Showalters Lord of the Underworld series.

  • Monster in My Closet

    "Quirky with Unusual Characters."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Right away I knew this would be a good book. I was engaged with the silliness right from the beginning. I loved finding out what monster was coming next in the story. There are both good monsters and evil monsters, the trick is to figure out who is who. There's also a sexy guy that is all kinds of delish and I think there is promise there. Overall a fluffy story. ***spoiler*** there was a rape scene at the end that was a bit disturbing and then glossed over a little too much. I did think the heroine was a little naïve, not to check on her friends when she knew a monster was targeting them. A fast pasted audio that made the day go by super-fast. Narrator is good and I will be defiantly getting the next book in this series.

  • Secondhand Spirits: A Witchcraft Mystery, Book 1

    "I laugh that the 80's is now vintage."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was a good book. I wouldn't say fun per say, but defiantly left you with a good feeling. The characters were just good people who made you want to cheer for the underdogs. I love going to yard sales, secondhand stores, estates sales and now that it is spring this book only intensified my need to find the perfect bargain. Plus I love reading stories from San Francisco, it is such a colorful place. There is a slight male interest that I believe will be interesting to follow in the remaining series, no sex. Narrator was slow and raspy, this was distracting and I felt she made the book darker than the author intended. I will be continuing on with the next book and see how it fairs.

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    This is a really nice continuation of this series. When the author does a good job, the first in the series becomes my favorite in said series because it's the introduction to a brand new world. It isn't often for me that the second in the series is better than the first. This is one of those rare cases. The story was interesting though I missed Marcus since he didn't play as big of a role in this one. Hvam does a great job with voices. It's amazing how so many voices come from one woman.

He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.
