    Newly undead shifter-turned-vampire Kita Nekai is coming to grips with the reality that her cat has not awakened since her change. What she needs is a little time to adjust to her new liquid diet and the increasingly complex attraction to her sire, Nathanial. What she gets is a headless harlequin.

    Story
    Where does Twice Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Twice Dead has another world whence come the shifters and this adds a good bit to this story. Kalayna Price is a top notch author in this fantasy genre and I like all of her books. This book is one of my top ten from Audible especially in the fantasy genre.
    Piper Goodeve is excellent narrating this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kita is a very interesting character she is a shapeshifting cat before Nathaniel turns her into a vampire to save her life. She HATES being a bloodsucker and tries to survive by living off wild animals. It doesn't work because she needs a base level of "master" vamp blood and she finds drinking from Nathaniel too intimate. Nathaniel defies the "master of the city" (his brother) for Kita because he obviously loves her. There is a group of scholar magic wielders, necromancers, and everything else you can imagine. You would think it would be confusing but the author works them all in story well.


    Which character – as performed by Piper Goodeve – was your favorite?

    Kita


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time and money if you like fantasy genre.

    Story

    Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye - and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing - among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey.

    The eighth entry in Charlaine Harris' New York Times best selling, Anthony Award-winning series finds Sookie reeling from an explosive attack on the previous month's vampire summit. Many vampires were killed, including several of Sookie's friends. But most pressing for Sookie is the unknown status of her weretiger boyfriend Quinn. Like it or not, everything is changing in the supernatural world - and Sookie is caught in the middle.

  • Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Story
    Would you listen to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs again? Why?

    Yes, it's a humorous and quick moving story with vampires, werewolves, humans, etc trying to survive love, murder, betrayal and all the other stuff that makes life worthwhile.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It doesn't get you wound around the supernatural axle and presents characters that could just be real (if there really was vampires and werewolves) and the narrator makes the funny even funnier.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Her interpretation of the voices is fantastic, I love her Dick Cheney. Her Jane Jameson voice is even better than I imagined Jane when I read the book in paperback.


    Any additional comments?

    Great voice actor, narrator or whatever you call the reader.
