    Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. He lives alone. He operates alone. He's given a job; he takes out the target; he gets paid. He's The Killer. Victor arrives in Paris to perform a standard kill and collect for an anonymous client. He completes it with trademark efficiency - only to find himself in the middle of an ambush and fighting for his life.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is hard to find good books and I have listen to all three in this series and would recommend it to anyone wanting to be entertained for hours.... When I do a review I like to name some of my favorite authors to explain the type of books I enjoy , Vince Flynn, Lee Childs, Barry Eisler, Jack Campbell, and John Ringo to name a few....


    What did you like best about this story?

    It pulls you in from the start and doesn't let you go....


    What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rob Shapiro brings Victor and the other characters to life. I will now use his name to search and see what else might be interesting...

    Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick's Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely "coincidences," he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery.

    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Great reader...


    Any additional comments?

    I will say this again. The First six minutes of the book tells you about a part that is 2/3 of the way through the book. It was very distracting to me to know that part was coming up. I enjoy the book but it would of been better not knowing where it was all going.. I will skip the pro-log on book 2.

    When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy - one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

    Where does The Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I gave up on Romance novels years ago. I got this one on a special deal and will look at some of Nora Roberts other book now...


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was a well written story, with lots of emotion.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    I enjoy all of the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did make me tear up a little and smile a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    I find it very helpful when people who write reviews name the authors that they enjoy . Some of my favorite female authors are Tanya Huff, Jennifer Estep , Laurell Hanilton, Patricia Briggs, Dana Stabenow , Carrie Vaughn and Kim Harrison.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Would you listen to Ender's Shadow again? Why?

    I've already listened to this book twice and will listen to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ender's Shadow?

    The whole story is great.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the different readers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm not sure how this could be a movie


    Any additional comments?

    I have told my family and friends about this book. I have listen to " Ender's Game" after Enders Shadow and I enjoyed the Enders Shadow series better. I think the author became a better writer.

    It’s Gin Blanco's party - and you’ll cry if she wants you to. Against her better judgment, Gin is coerced into attending a high-society gala with the rest of Ashland's elite underworld. On display: the priceless art collection of her deceased nemesis, Mab Monroe, and an excess of crime-boss swagger. While not comfortable in her fancy attire, Gin gets vastly more interested in the evening’s events when a group of thieves bursts in and tries to seize the valuable, dangerous gems.

    Would you listen to Deadly Sting again? Why?

    Maybe


    Would you recommend Deadly Sting to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure but, I would tell them that I felt the book was lacking alittle.. But I love Gin and her family...


    What does Lauren Fortgang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She always brings the story to life... If they change the reader I would not listen to another book in this series.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was lacking in moments for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I have seen where others have left the names of authors they enjoy and I have found this helpful. So here are some of my favorites...Charlaine Harris, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Stacia Kane, Kelly Meding, Tanya Huff, Patricia Briggs, Carrie Vaughn, Cat Adams, Kelly Armstrong, Laurel Hamiton and Kim Harrison.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ever After to be better than the print version?

    I am addicted to audible. I read the first few books of this series and when I discovered audible I down loaded several of them... The reader takes you away and into the story... I will listen to these stories over and over...


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A Great Reader.....

    I'll be waiting for the next one to come out.....
