    "Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I'm Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I'm retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren't aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox."

    Just because she has wings, doesn't mean she's an Angel... It's front page news on every Angel gossip rag: "Marcus & Ameana: Gone the Way of Brad & Jennifer". So, Who Is the "Angelina"? Emmy Baxter - a mere mortal! Ameana tries to avoid her ex and his new love by focusing on the other evil out to destroy the team. But soon her pain turns to fury. And before the end... a girl plots revenge, a leader is on the edge, and an Angel falls.

    Story

    I don't understand the reviews from people but I guess I'm not them. I know a great story when I listen to it and maybe those reviewers should take up listening if they cant understand what a good story is by reading it. When you listen it takes on another world as if you're really there. I just don't get it because we definitely cant be reviewing the same story.

    Lola StVil created another wonderful story and its written to pure perfection. I feel its somewhat original because of the human and even the angels somewhat human feelings. I love that and its nice to relate to. The characters in the Fallout makes me love them even more. I still am having trouble liking Ameana and her tendacies. Yes, she's hurting but she's still being mean of loosing Marcus to a human. Emmy is still being protected by the guardians and she is strong minded and overall strong for a young human girl, Overall, Emmy is strong and loveable.

    Lola creates a hide and seek sort of story with good vs. evil. The Guardians are sent there to look for something called the triplex and prevent humanity from being destroyed and Emmerson plays a huge part in this much larger than anyone knows. Marcus is still being told by the Sage that he has to leave Emmy alone because if he doesn't they would fail their mission. Marcus and Emmy continue their relationship. I can understand why Ameana acts the way she does because she's with them daily and even has to guard Emmy.

    This story left me with my heart aching, jaw dropped, and immediately downloading the third audio. Lola absolutely left me an emotional wreck with this story. Trust me, it was magnificent because that's how real her writing feels. She's an excellent author and she picked a great narrator to tell her story. Lola has such a vivid imagination and amazing talent that shows in her writing and someone should take notice.

    When it comes to narrator Jennifer O'Donnell I must say she's extremely gifted and I'm sorry to say she doesn't need another narrator working with her because she's that darn good. You don't need a male for the male characters or vise versa. If the narrator is talented enough they can distinguish each character and Jennifer does an amazing job doing this. Jennifer kept me immersed in this story and on the edge of my seat. Wonderfully written and perfectly performed. You cant go wrong with these stories and the audio versions are mind blowing, I highly recommend you get these audios today!

    Story

    I really love stories about angels and demons. I can remember one year looking for every angel/demon audiobook I could find. At the time I found everyone I could and went on an angel and demon binge. Then I couldn't find anymore and I felt as if I was going through withdrawals. I wish this story had been available at that time. I was fortunate to have stumbled across this audio and the others that go with this story. I absolutely LOVE this story!

    Author Lola StVil has written a brilliant an absolutely a wonderful story. The characters are fun, and you find yourself bonding with them almost immediately. I love all the details she included in this story like snaps, ports, Samson string, holders, and so much more. Lola did a perfect job planning what she wanted the readers/listeners to read or hear. The story is especially fascinating and you cant help but become immersed in the story.

    Emmy Baxter is a fifteen year old girl, a mortal girl. She lives in New York City and believes she's a product of rape. She attends the Luingston Academy on a partial scholarship. My heart aches for Emmy but others as well. Emmy ends up falling in love with Marcus, the head guardian angel. Lola has written the story to where Emmy never seems to get what she wants. Emmy does have a lot of pressure and commitments she has to uphold as do the angels.

    I also love the demon angels, such as Rage, Chaos, and the others even if they are trying to kill the guardians, the humans, and Emmy. Don't get me wrong I do feel Emmy is extremely strong for a fifteen year old mortal girl. I do think she does ask too many questions, puts her self at risk, and causes problems for the guardians. I love the teenage angels, Marcus, Rio, Jay, Ameana, who can be a real b.... most of the time but she has her reasons and then there's Miku, who we find out more about in book 3. Miku and Rio are twins, teenagers, and also guardian angels. They love each other because they're twins and among other reasons. Once again, Lola StVil has created a wonderful series about angels, demons, a sage, and wow, so much details that you cant stop until you finish the story but then you'll immediately start book two.

    The narrators Jennifer O'Donnell and Adam Chase did an outstanding job with their performance of this story. Although, there are times that I feel Ameana's voice is to deep, sort of manly but other than that, it's perfect. The two worked great together and you can tell when you listen. You really will enjoy listening to this story and you're definitely missing out if you don't. The two narrators really shine with this story and the accents of all the characters are extremely enjoyable to listen to.

    For Lola, I hope one day you get a chance to read this. I want to tell you to reach high because your stories are worthy of a great publisher, maybe Harper Collins. I think that publishing company is a great one. I've listened to the first three audios that you've written. I must say they are worthy of being published. I can't wait to listen to book four. I am looking forward to it and I cant wait.

    Paul Cameron heard voices. There were two of them. They were whispering to each other in the bones of his skull, wearily, interminably, making monstrous plans to conquer the Earth.... Cameron was an educated man, an English professor at a leading university. Was he going insane? Or was he really tuned in somehow on the telepathic conversations of a recon patrol for a terrible Martian invasion? He tried warning the others, but nobody believed him.

    Story

    This story is over fifty years old and the book cover isn't really appealing but you can't judge a book by its cover, so don't. Even though its that old there's only some parts that let you know its that old. The story was published in 1960. Although the story is this old its still written extremely well. This is the first story I've read/listened to by author Louis Charbonneau.

    Basically the story's about a man who's an English professor. Cameron works at a leading university and he's a well educated man. He believes he could be going insane because he's having a difficult time believing he's telepathic. He is hearing about an invasion from martians and no one believes him. He's told or rather hears that he needs to kill the listener.

    Narrator Paul Heitsch does another exceptional job with his performance of this story. I love listening to audiobooks that are narrated by him. Honestly, authors, he's extremely talented and I would love to hear some more fantasy genres narrated by him. I know he'd blow me away because even stories that were written fifty years ago, Paul can still knock me off my feet. I love the way he seems to make the characters him, if that makes any sense. The accents are performed to perfection. I highly recommend that you give this audio a try because it's really good and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Story

    Debra Holland is an amazing author. She fascinates me, mesmerizes me, and even inspires me. I've listened to all the Montana Sky audio that's available on Audible and I thought her writing couldn't be any better. But, the day I listened to Sower of Dreams I realized she's a brilliant writer. She's really one of those unique authors that should have a publisher but I realize that not all authors care to be published but she definitely should. Honestly, Debra's Montana Sky stories are really good and I don't care much for that genre but I found myself really enjoying it. The day I listened to Sower of Dreams I realized what a brilliant writer she is. But once you think Debra's writing doesn't get any better it does, as I realized when I listened to Reaper of Dreams, the second book in the God Dream Trilogy series.

    Debra creates one of the most fascinating stories that I've ever found. The world she created, the Gods, and the animals are unlike anything I've ever heard of. The world feels so real and the characters make the story come alive. She creates a world with complex cultures, language, and feuding Gods. I love how Debra also created a wonderful fantasy with a little romance. I guarantee once you listen to Sower of Dreams you will immediately have to find out what happens in Reaper of Dreams.

    Reaper picks up right where Sower of Dreams ends. It's a fantastic addition to the God Dream Trilogy. It's filled with magic, scifii, war, a little romance and so much more. I discovered it's not necessary to re-read/re-listen to Sower before starting Reaper because Debra includes flashbacks of the first story and I found that made it more intriguing. There are some sensitive subjects included but it's not too bad. I'm not going to give the story a way and include spoilers. All I know is this story along with Sower of Dreams is a must! To be honest, this is a very enjoyable audiobook and you would love it if you were to listen to the two stories. Debra did a great job wrapping this story up and she ended it in a good way. She lets you know that there will be a third book maybe sometime in January, yet she doesn't leave those horrific cliffhangers that make you want to throw things.

    Narrator Noah Michael Levine is the perfect voice for these two stories. I find his voice to be seductive and he pulls you in with his seductively smooth voice. Noah's voice is pure perfection and I'm surprised authors like J.R. Ward hasn't grabbed him up. I guarantee his voice would've been perfect for Wards Fallen Angel series because sorry to say but Eric G. Dove doesn't do it for me and I have them all that's available on Audible but I can't listen to him, it's just not good. Noah can speak like a woman in a way that you would never expect a man to be doing the female voices. He truly is a very talented performer and Debra is lucky to have him narrating her audios. If I were here I would get a contract set up and have him do all the audiobooks that she'll put on Audible but I'm not her. I'm sure that she has everything the way she wants them. He brings her story to life and gets the emotions of each character exactly as they would be in the real world. I highly, highly recommend this series. It's a definite must!!

But 10 blocks from the White House, on the notorious 14th Street strip, a war is raging over deviant behavior. And Seede is on the front lines, deep into a secret freelance project that’s taking him to places where most people would never dare to go.

    Story

    I feel as if I write this so much but this is the first time I've listened to anything by this author. I'm not exactly sure what to think about this story. I find that Paul Heitsch did his job and kept me engrossed.

    Mike Sager added so many characters to this story, a reporter, a gay activist, law enforcers, teenage runaway, a billionaire, pimps, hookers, drug dealer, and so many more characters. The story was good but I thought it had too many characters.

    Jonathon Seede is a respectable man, with a pretty wife, a new baby, and a job at the town's esteemed newspaper company. But a war is raging blocks over from the White House, deviant behavior. Seede finds himself right on the front line by taking on a freelance project and it's taking him to places where most would never dare go.

    I've heard that Mike Sager does a perfect job writing non fiction and even winning awards for his stories. This story is just as good as his other non fiction stories. However, I feel Mike lacks in places. Mike does create some humor and the characters are superb. It's one hell of a page turner if you read.

    I've listened to Paul Heitsch narration of stories before and I really enjoy his narrating skills. I honestly don't think I would've enjoyed this story as much as I did if not for Paul's narration of the story. Paul does an excellent job with his performance of this story. Every time I listen to something that Paul has narrated he takes my breath away. He does a superb job changing accents. He makes you feel as if you're there watching the story unfold. I really enjoy Paul's narrative skills. I highly recommend that you give this story a chance. I think you'll enjoy it as much as I have.

    Wow, another excellent story by author Jen Minkman! I absolutely loved it from beginning to the very end. This story was different than the other stories that Jen has written. She did a superb job at creating this new story. I find Jen's writing to be a work of art. She continues to blow me away and she surprises me with every new story she writes. I felt as if Jen stepped out of her "comfort zone" but she succeeded at writing a wonderful story that I'll definitely listen to again. I'm not going to give anything away with this one. I will tell you that it's a must read/listen to. This was a really wonderful story and brought together in a perfect package because it has all you want in a story. Jen wrote in supernatural creatures, like skinwalkers and supernatural animals, she also included romance, reincarnation, Indian folklore, and even history.

    The narrator Coco Bell did a great job with her performance of this story. It was easy to understand and I was able to distinguish each and every character. I've listened to other stories that Coco has narrated and I can honestly say that her performance improves with every book she narrates. I will be looking for more stories that Coco Bell has narrated.

    Jen Minkman as I mentioned above is an exceptional author. I feel as if she can write anything and make it enjoyable. She's an author that everyone should check out and watch for. She's certainly good enough to have a publisher. I highly recommend that you check out all of Jen's stories. I have and I've given them all five star ratings because I feel she's just that damn good, PERIOD.

    Story

    This story is filled with everything that you want in a story. However, I did check out some of her books and discovered she wrote a book that goes with this one. But, this story is a standalone and can be read by itself. The name of the other story that goes with this one is called Anessia's Quest incase you might want to read it as well.

    I don't want to give too much away about the story so there's no spoilers and it will be a short review. Honestly, there's a lot about God and Christianity in the story that I don't normally care to listen or read about but this was surprisingly good. I was gifted the audiobook so I listened to it and I'm thankful that I received it and I listened to the story. I did listen, I found it to be extremely enjoyable.

    Raider takes an older woman named Charley as a hostage after he robbed a bank. He just didn't realize that the woman he takes as a hostage is a Christian and all she does is drive him crazy with all her praying. He's determined to show her that God doesn't exist. Raider believes that if there was a God that he'd never would've gone through the things he has dealt with in his life.

    Michael A. Smith does an exceptional job with his narration of the story. I listened to the audio and I didn't have any trouble identifying characters. After Raider takes Charley as a hostage there's not many characters left for Michael to narrate but he still does a superb job with distinguishing the characters voices. I felt the author picked the right person for the story. He really helped me with identifying every character and keeping myself immersed in the story.

    I don't think it matters if you enjoy listening to anything with Christianity or not because it's still a fantasy and it's a well written story that pulls you in. For those that love listening or reading stories about faith then you'll love this story.

    Story

    This is a crazy, even absurd take on zombies but it's fascinating. Every zombie book you read or movie you watch make zombies dumb, brain dead, and love to eat the living. This story is nothing like your typical zombie story. When Jones wakes up without a memory of his life, how he died, and even how he's now a zombie he's determined to find answers. Author Stephen Kozeniewski has written a wonderful story that's unique and mesmerizing. I would love to watch this story on the big screen. I do feel it would make a wonderful movie with the authors different take on zombies. It's filled with humor, mystery, and believe it, even a sex scene. It was funny and I often caught myself laughing out loud. There are some gross moments but what zombie story doesn't have them? But, I was happy that the story wasn't filled with gross scenes. These zombies don't really wake up dead, rather they wake as if they're still alive. The author really created a superb story with twists, humor, and intrigue.

    I felt narrator Steve Rimpici blew me away. He is a very talented narrator and his performance of Braineater Jones was brilliant. Steve's accents for the characters is perfect. He mesmerized me with his voices of the minion, the Boss, and especially Jones. Even though his performance of the Alcibe was breathtaking his accent on Kumarie simply was brilliant. Steve's voice is amazing and incredibly talented. His range of voices with this story is breathtaking. Any narrator that makes you feel like you're in the story, bond with the characters, and bring those characters to life is extremely talented. Steve Rimpici blew me away and I would love to hear more stories that he narrates and I'm sure that I will.

    Author Stephen Kozeniewski didn't go wrong when he chose Steve Rimpici to narrate his story. He made the right decision when he choosing Steve. Both author and narrator did an excellent job. One created a wonderful story the other did a superb job with his performance of this story. I highly, highly recommend this story. I know anyone who gets this story will love it as much as I have. Give it a try and if you don't like it, remember Audible's warranty. What do you have to lose? You can't go wrong with this purchase. I know I loved this story and I hope there will be another story about Braineater Jones.

    In the Heart of a Dragon we learned about Donovan DeChance and how's he a collector of ancient books and manuscripts. He's also a practicing mage and a private investigator. When a three hundred year old female vampire is kidnapped Donovan is called in to investigate. Donovan soon believes this is not a simple abduction, it goes much, much deeper than that.

    Corey Snow has done another stellar performance with Vintage Soul. He also narrated the first book to the series and he did a wonderful job on that story as well. I think Corey is a very talented narrator. I enjoy a narrator that changes their voice to make each characters identity known. I love being able to listen to a story and being able to recognize each person speaking. Corey does an exceptional job with distinguishing accents. I've listened to other stories that Corey's narrated and I highly recommend that you give one of the stories he narrates a try and David Wilson's The DeChance Chronicles is a great start.

    Wow, what can I say about author David Niall Wilson that hasn't been said before? David created another extraordinary story and all the twist leave you guessing throughout. David used a great deal of detail when writing this story. David's writing style is solid and he makes sure to include all the details that are accentual to keeping your interest. I highly recommend The DeChance Chronicles or any of his other stories. I really recommend this series and I bet you'll love it as much as I have and if not remember Audibles return policy.

    Story

    This story is about reincarnation. I felt the story too short and if it had been longer it would've made this story incredible. It's about a boy that is called Uruk. Uruk has begged Ari to teach him to be a holy man. Ari refuses to do this. The story starts in 1706 BC. and these individuals continue throughout the story until the year 2091 AD. It really would make for a wonderful lengthier book.

    The narrator Steven Jay Cohen did a fantastic job with his narration of this short story. At first I thought it was about a female but as I listened that's when I learned he was Uruk in the story.The boy was the one telling the story and that's why Steven used the accent so much. Steven also did an exceptional job with the other characters accents.

    This was my first story I listened to that was written by author JC Andrijeski and the first story I've heard by narrator Steven Cohen as well. The author has written a great story even if it was a short story. It shows imagination and the author and the narrator took me to that time. I felt I was there and going through reincarnation as the story took me there. A wonderful take on Hitler and Churchill as the author tells a tale about an age old feud between two rivals. A short story but definitely worth the listen and I think you'll find this story as enjoyable as I did. I highly recommend this story.
