    Story
    Would you listen to Bloodline again? Why?

    Yes, because you always discover something you missed the first time around.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction of the team. I also really enjoyed the two newest members, especially Kane.


    What does Peter Jay Fernandez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He helps with keeping the pace and brings energy to the performance.


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

    Yes it made me laugh in several places because I know the characters from previous books. It also made me hold my breath more than once.


    Any additional comments?

    The author writes in such a way as to pull you in to the story. I always look forward to a new book by him. In fact, I have gone back and bought many of his other books before the Sigma team started. The only dismay I feel right now, is knowing I have to wait a long time for the next book!

    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

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

    Absolutely! This book has it all. Suspense, Intrigue, Action, Excitement, with just a tiny bit of romance thrown in.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Certainly! I could hardly wait to hear what would happen next!


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

    The voices were spot on and I had no trouble differentiating the different characters. He definitely allowed the suspense to flow as the author intended!


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

    Yes but I can't say it on without spoiling it for someone else. Also the end of the book. Just knowing I have to wait for the next one! Come on James write FASTER!


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely be listening to this book again as life has a way of intruding and I may have missed something! :)

    Story

    Tananarive Due, author of The Living Blood won the American Book Award and is praised as Stephen King's equal by Publishers Weekly. In The Good House, Due sets a story of ancient powers and modern retribution in a small Pacific Northwest town. When a young woman returns to her grandmother's empty mansion, she is pitted against demonic forces that have poisoned her family for generations.

    Rebecca says: "FABULOUS!"
    "A good read."
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book and the narration but sometimes I would get confused if I stopped the book in the wrong place. I would figure it out fairly quickly but the way the author kept switching between the people and the times the book was set in caused me to have to stop and figure it out. By the time I reached the end, I was glad for it. I felt the book dragged in a few places. The ending wasn't quite what I was expecting but was close. Still overall a good book and I am glad I read it.

    Story

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Barbara says: "A feast for the mind and imagination"
    "Different twist on vampires, witches, and demons"
    Overall

    I throughly enjoyed the book and the narration. I just finished the book and checked to make sure the next book isn't available yet. It is a different twist on vampires, witches, and demons. I am looking forward to the next book with great anticipation! That said, I don't feel this type of book is for everyone. You have to enjoy reading/listening to Fantasy genre and have a good imagination to really enjoy this type of book.
