    Looking for a tattoo - and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop of true love, or even a hex on an ex? Head to the quiet and mysterious Gage, the best skin artist in town. Using unique potions - a blend of extraordinary ingredients and special inks - to etch the right symbol, he can fulfill any heart's desire. But in a place like Low Town, where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires happily walk among humanity, everything has its price. No one knows that better than Gage.

    Which character – as performed by Michael Urie – was your favorite?

    Gage was my favorite character narrated by Michael Urie. I love the sarcasm.


    Any additional comments?

    What I loved most about this was the narration. The story was a pretty good one, but I felt it dragged on at times. But, I really liked the narration by Michael Urie. I thought the female voice of Trixie sounded like Adam Sandler in the movie Jack and Jill and it made me giggle. And the character Gideon sounded like Clint Eastwood, but I loved loved loved the sarcasm of Gage that was captured. I was pleasantly surprised when I googled Michael Urie and saw it was the guy from Ugly Betty. I loved that show and him on it, and I love his narration. I will buy any book he narrates.

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

    She brings the book to life!


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

    This book has an amazing cliffhanger, which I LOVE in a book. It left me wanting more!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope they release the 4th book soon because I am so fascinated to see where things go from here. Book 3 ended on such a pivotal scene that I must know what's going to happen next!!!

    Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

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

    Yes I would recommend this to a friend because it was an awesome book. I loved the storyline, the characters, the narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked everything about this book! But I think I liked the storyline and the chemisty between Braith and Aria best. Although there are more vampire books out there than I can count, this story was not another regurgitated book. It was original and fantastic!


    What about Luci Christian’s performance did you like?

    I loved it all! I especially loved how she sort of used Braiths voice as the narration voice during his POV scenes and Aria's voice as the narration voice during her POV scenes. That probably makes no sense, but it will when you listen.


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

    It made me fall in love with the characters and it left me wanting more!


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book completely by accident and I am so happy I did. It's such a good story and if you love paranormal book, especially vampire books, you will love this story!

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Did Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    They did fine. I didn't have a problem with the narration. It was the book/ending that sucked! I really think the author lost a lot of her readers after this.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't read anything else from this author. So disappointing. There could have been at least 3 other options for the ending. Just stupid.

Who can be trusted when sin and salvation collide? Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Was it too long between books and the narrator sort of forgot how some of the characters sounded previously? I thought the previous books sounded better and more consistant.


    What character would you cut from The Undead Pool?

    Ivy


    Any additional comments?

    I had much higher hopes for this book. I have them all and was looking forward to a romance with Trent. The first sexual encounter they shared was a HUGE let down. The story line was weird and sometimes hard to comprehend. At times I found myself zoning out just waiting for something interesting to happen. I loved the 11 other books. This one not so much, sadly.

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    If you’ve listened to books by Kresley Cole before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to almost every single book by Kresley Cole and I have to say how disappointing this narration was. I'm not sure why Robert Petkoff didn't narrate this book but it's a shame because his narration is amazing.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ’s performances?

    NO! The male narrator was not too bad but the female narrator was terrible. She didn't even really try to change her voice when speaking all the different female voices. It seemed rather lazy on her behalf.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom. I am sure I would have enjoyed the book more if the female narrator wasn't a part of it. I would have really enjoyed it if Robert Petkoff narrated it.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole reason why I buy audio books is for the performance. I just wasnt feeling these narrators. I don't mean to be rude, I truly do not, but I just wish they would have stuck with Robert Petkoff. His characters come to life.

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.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Jackson telling Evie he is home.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was not quite as good as the first one but it was still a VERY GOOD BOOK. I like the girl who narrates, but she didn't do Jackson's accent as strong as she did in the last book. At some points I was not clear when it was Jackson speaking or Evie. Also, Jackson is in this book much less than the last one. And he's my favorite character so it was a shame. This is a book I would recommend because it was very good. I do wish it had more Jackson and his accent was stronger but other than that, it's worth the money and time. I'm just bummed I have to wait an entire year to see what happens...the end is a cliffhanger!!

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.
