    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    Would you try another book from Laurell K. Hamilton and/or Kimberly Alexis?

    I am done with books by Hamilton; I'm disgusted by the lack of story and the main character's idiocy


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton???s story?

    No plot, main character is a whiny nutcase; these used to be good books but are just awful now


    What didn???t you like about Kimberly Alexis???s performance?

    She was fine, but the sound effects added in (echo effect, gunshots) were awful and really destroyed the book environment


    Any additional comments?

    I took a chance and bought this latest one, even though I've been increasingly disappointed by the last few books. I wish I had saved my credit for something I could stand to listen to for more than three hours without deleting the book.

  • It Happens in the Dark: A Mallory Novel, Book 11

    The reviews called it "A Play to Die For" after the woman was found dead in the front row. It didn't seem so funny the next night, when another body was found - this time the playwright's, his throat slashed.

    Detective Kathy Mallory takes over, but no matter what she asks, no one seems to be giving her a straight answer. The only person - if "person" is the right word - who seems to be clear is the ghostwriter. Every night, an unseen backstage hand chalks up line changes and messages on a blackboard. And the ghostwriter is now writing Mallory into the play itself, a play about a long-ago massacre that may not be at all fictional.

    What would have made It Happens in the Dark better?

    I love the Mallory series, but really miss Alyssa Bresnahan. I enjoy Barbara Rosenblat very much in other books, but this is read in a cutesy/"acting the story way" that is not suitable to the more noir aspects of these books. I'm nearly an hour in, and not sure I can keep listening. I may just go buy the book in paper and read it that way; this is very disappointing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    Alyssa Bresnahan


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The stories in this series are always interesting, and I really recommend them.

    Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea - a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA - past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways - and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks. But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own?

    Michael says: "Don't let the narrator ruin it for you"
    "Good book, horrible narration"
    Overall

    This story is very interesting and well written; if I were reading the book it would get a higher rating. But this is the most awful narration I've heard in a long time. He sounds constantly bored by the material and annoyed at having to do this. It really detracts from the book. Too bad - this is an interesting story!
