I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it'll leave them both branded by fire.

    Story
    Would you listen to Branded by Fire again? Why?

    I would. Mercy is one of my favorite females in the series. I was hoping that there would be a story with her as the female lead. She shows that even a strong woman can find love and not be afraid to grab it and hold on to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Branded by Fire?

    When the matting bond snapped into place moments before there was suppose to be a bomb blowing up a building. I enjoyed how Riley described it has them being better than being drunk.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Riley realized that Mercy was his mate. And it just sat there stunned for a long time. It caught him off guard just like it did to Mercy.


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

    When Mercy went to the SnowDancer den and was told that Riley had a big heart and she should be careful. Because he didn't expect anyone to do anything special for him while he would do anything for those he loves.

    I honestly can't tell if this was bad because of the writing or because of the narrator. I think it must have some elements of both. It has taken me more than a week to get through the first part of the book. I just couldn't stand to listen to the story for more than an hour or so at a time.

    The main character; Claire, is supposed to be this strong independent woman but, she turns out to be a wimp at every turn. I'm not saying that the things she has faced are easy, fun, or a walk in the park but at times you just want to smack some sense into her.

    I don't know if I plan on continuing on with the series after this book it is too hard to finish and I don't want to waste my money or a credit. All I can say on this book in particular is to be patient. It will take some time to get through.

    This has to be one of my favorite highlander stories. It has love, time travel, thrills, tears, and, laughter. I really can't describe how great this story is. It also helps that the narrator is amazing. I find myself going back to this book when I'm looking for something to read.

    In my opinion this is one of the best written highland books on Audible. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys; highland books, time traveling romances and, the narration of Angela Dawe. This is a great read.

But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

    This is one of those books you can't hep but reread. It has it all. From suspense to tears. Even though it is a longer book you will be hooked from the moment you start. You won't want to put it down.

    Once you have finished the book you will find yourself going back to start over again. I really can't tell you how great this book is other than to recommend it to read.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…. A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    Story

    First let me say that I am a huge fan of the 'Night Huntress' novels. But this one just didn't hit the money for me. Everything in the book you could have predicted. There really wasn't too many surprises. Also it would be nice (not that audible has a say in it for us to get a look into what Bones is thinking instead of it being a first person narration.

    Unlike Jeaniene Frost's other books in the series, this one doesn't leave you with a sense that there is going to be a next book even though there is going to be more. This story isn't at tje sa,e standards as her previous books and it shows.

    Story

    I have always enjoyed long books. But not in this case. The book was just too long. I admit that I have forgotten details from the beginning of the book because the chapters were so long.

    Many of the references weren't adequately explained. The whole book in my opinion could have been about 2-3 hours shorter. There were no unnecessary details in the book but, it did seem to me that the book dragged on and on.

    The sample read that you listen to also isn't until the 10th chapter which is almost near the end of the first part. I didn't like that. Had I known that I wouldn't have bought it. This isn't a book that you can sit down and finish with minimum breaks. It is a tough read.

    The characters were.... they just seemed off to me. I can't put my finger on what was wrong with them other then they just didn't seem right. I will say that you should probably read the attached PDF if you want to understand some of the terms. They are pretty synonymous with what you would think they are but for reference it is a good idea.

    In Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In Dark Wolf, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death.

    This was another amazing book from Christine Feehan. I have to admit that when I found out that Phil Gigante was one of the Narrators I was even more eager to read this book. He is just amazing. Natalie Ross did an amazing job as well.

    This story was really good but, it wasn't as good as the previous books in the series. For me it took to long. And the ending just ended. Yes there is another book and there had to be some sort of cliff hanger but, nothing was resolved. You were left with more questions then answers. The ending was the most disappointing part of the whole book. Apart from the ending it was a very nice book. Something I would reread and recommend to friends.

    I loved this book. Christine Feehan was the main reason I bean reading paranormal romance novels and she hasn't lost her edge from "Dark Prince" to "Dark Lycan". This book was amazing. I would recommend it again and again. It is a book that you will go back to and want to reread. And the narrator was just fantastic as well. There just isn't enough good things I can say about this book.

    The series just gets better and better with each book and each read! I especially loved that in this book you get Adrian's point of view. It really brought the book up another level. I don't want to talk about the book or what goes on in it, I don't like doing that for good must read books like this one, but I will say even though I don't have a younger sibling I do have to say that Zoe is too clingy for a 15 year old girl. It is as if she hasn't don't anything on her own EVER! Maybe that is normal I don;t know but it as annoying, I wanted to reach into the book and smack some sense into her.

    The only downside to the book was the ending, you could tell that the book as coming to an end and it just felt rushed. The ending however was done brilliantly; with the betrayal, the love the devotion and the faith. It definitely leaves you wanting more. And on the edge of your seat for the next installment.

    This is one of those books you can't help but enjoy! It has it all, vampires, werewolves, angels oh and you can't forget the love the mind reading and the action. At first I wasn't sure about this book, I thought I would try it out and if I didn't like it wouldn't be too big of a deal. By the time I was half way through the first chapter I was hooked.

    Risa has to deal with so much and make so many hard decision that it is impressive especially since she is under so much pressure to let the problem she is investigating go. This is one of those series that you can't help but buy all the books at once and read them through.

    I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, action, mind-reading angels, and good sarcasm. You won't be disappointed.

    Story

    This is the first book in the "New Species" series and I have to say it is a wonderful start to the series. I was looking for a new series to start and from the moment I heard the sample I was hooked.

    When you start this book you will be more than a little freaked out at the beginning scene, I know I was, because of what it contains (no I won't give it away but, it is intense and be prepared), But that really dose set the tone for the rest of the book.

    Ellie is a great female lead in this book and her male counterpart Fury won't disappoint. This series can be read as stand alone titles, but I think that it is best to read them as a series because you ca see the characters in each book grow and evolve.

    This is a great new series and I'm really glad I stumbled upon it!
