    Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station---and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success.

    What disappointed you about Kitty and The Midnight Hour?

    I like the narrator and the author in her "Rachel Morgan: Hollows" books. However this book just wasn't for me. It was short, and not much content. There wasn't a lot of background given in the beginning, and the ending just like cut-off the story. I just didn't like it.

    An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right. Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

    What did you love best about Night Broken?

    I loved every single part about this book honestly. However I think the part I loved the MOST was Mercy and how she interacted with Christy.


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

    Most definitely! I didn't want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    I've always loved these books from the beginning. This book makes me want to go back and re-read (listen) to all of them again. The author makes things that happen in these books seem like normal life day-to-day happenings. I absolutely love these books, and can't wait for the next one. The author is great with details, because she really helps you imagine each scene as if you could really see it. Don't forget the narrator! She is great with all of her different characters.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? 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.

    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

    The writer in the first Book, and most of the 2nd was great. The narrators were awesome also. However in the last book it was just too much. I think the story should have ended after the 2nd if anything.


    Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but may have turned me off from the movie.

    Abby Cooper, the FBI's newest civilian profiler, is adding "spy" to her resume. The military's digital photography software that captures one's aura - just like Abby can - sits in a drone aircraft that's been stolen. It's a major breach in security, as every country's leader can be identified by their aura.... Abby springs into action to stop the criminals before they set their diabolical plan into motion, while making herself a prime target.

    What disappointed you about Vision Impossible?

    The story line was slow and boring. The narrator's voices are starting to get less and less different so as all the characters are beginning to sound alike. I'd also like to know when Milo began having that accent??!!


    What could Victoria Laurie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Gave it a better storyline. The CIA looking for a drone just wasn't thrilling.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next book is much better.

    I'm so hooked on this series! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes supernatural, fiction series.


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

    Her different voices for each character are great. All her different accents are even all on point. I get a kick out of hearing some of them.


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked it from the beginning keep on reading because they just keep coming back with more good stuff. I like how there's just enough romance, and not too much blood and gore. I just love it.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    I'm now addicted to this series. It's one of those things you don't want to stop listening to. The different voices for the characters is great. I love Jynx. The hyper quick talk is funny. I can't wait to read the next one! If you like fiction, supernatural and suspense/mystery this is for you!

    I am now addicted to this series! The narrator is great with the different characters, and not dull at all. I've noticed things I've read in other books lately are the same "myths" as in this book. I like being able to draw the line between backgrounds in fiction. If you like fiction, mysteries, and supernatural this IS for you.

    Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead---she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case.

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

    A different narrator (not so monotone) and a better story line. It doesn't even start off giving you any background to the story, it just dives right in. I'm completely lost. I think I've only gotten an hour in but it has yet to grab my attention. Even though I only paid $4.95 for the book I still feel ripped off.

    I was upset with one of the twists, so early in the series too. I just hope Patterson makes the outcome good in the next books. Not to big on the sound effects used, but other than that it was a good book. I like the reader, have listened to her on a few other books. Some people say she's monotone and doesn't change characters well, but in this book she did good. The story line was really good, with suspense. Like I said in the beginning, it has a few twists with one being very unexpected. All in all a good "read". Love the series.
