    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Kristen Ashley can tell a story. I like that there is always something going on in her stories. I also like the danger level of her stories. I enjoy guns and mayhem as much as a romance.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story, the language of the story got on my nerves after a while, too many "Baby" lines and seriously, nobody should ever use that many F-bombs in their everyday speech.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sandman Slim to be better than the print version?

    I really like audio books as I can move around and get work done around the house, so yes, I like the audio version better than print.


    What other book might you compare Sandman Slim to and why?

    Sandman Slim is a different kind of hero, he's the "good guy" (hero) but he's really fantastic at being "bad". He is a survivor, so he's done what he has had to do to, and they aren't necessarily good things. Bottom line, I don't know who I would compare to, but I really like him.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Sandman Slim was my favorite character.

    The first book of best-selling sci-fi author Jack Campbell’s new series Beyond the Frontier returns to find Captain John “Black Jack" Geary, the hero of the Lost Fleet series, awoken from cryogenic sleep to take command of the fleet. Geary’s legendary exploits have earned him the adoration of the people—and the enmity of politicians convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing.

    What did you love best about Dreadnaught?

    The story continues from The Lost Fleet, but isn't the same. It never lost my interest.


    Any additional comments?

    I would never have picked this book for myself, I got it for my husband to listen to. We ended up listening to The Lost Fleet series together and then we wanted more... I wanted more. This is a really great series.

    Where does Mercy Blade rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Mercy Blade ranks very high on my list of favorites. Khristine Hvam is one awesome narrator. She ranks as one of the best in my listens also. This book has a strong female lead character along the lines of the Mercy Thompson series.

    This narrator is flawless in my estimation. Love her.

    What did you love best about Her Royal Spyness?

    I really love that you just can't keep Georgie down.


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

    Rhys Bowen does a great job of revealing just enough to let you think you have it all figured out and then pulling the rug out from under you. Although, I don't try really hard to figure it out because I like to be surprised at the endings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the scenes with Georgie and Belinda.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked this book and will definitely listen to more of them. The narrator is absolutely fabulous.

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

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

    It did keep me on the edge of my seat, because I wasn't sure where it was going to go. I would think I has it figured out and then someone else would die and I had to try again.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    I can't really pick a favorite because Katherine Kellgren is so good I love them all.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and I love, love, love the narrator. These stories help me get a lot of housework done.
