    MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator for this book is horrible. It's hard to get into a story when you can't get passed horrible accents. Every body in this book sounds either like a leprachaun or an idiot.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Darkfever?

    this is an awesome series and I revisit it frequently (reading my copies) Although the last few books are read by a really good narrator...the first few are not!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    hugely

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

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

    I actually prefer to listen to this on audio book, but the narrator sucks on books 1-3


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrators really brought it to life


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

    Definitely a book you could listen to in one sitting!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    What disappointed you about Captured by the Highlander?

    I'm all for a good cheesy romance, but this was endlessly stupid


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julianne MacLean again?

    Nope!


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

    The narrator was good, although it might've been better to have a woman reading the woman part. Dude has a deep voice.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    All the characters were worth hearing about/from

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the world of the Fae and of Man.

    Would you try another book from Karen Marie Moning and/or Joyce Bean?

    I LOVE karen marie moning; Joyce Bean is a horrible narrator. She makes the main character sound like a complete idiot, and all the men sound like leprachauns.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself is good


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Like I said...leprachauns. Even the one's whose accent the main character couldn't identify


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator in the last two books of this series is pretty darn good. And it probably helps that they got a man to do the man's voice. It really brings the story out a lot better when you're not super focused on a woman trying to sound like a man.
