    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

    Would you try another book from Ilona Andrews and/or Renée Raudman?

    I would never listen to another book read by Renee Raudman, I could barely listen to the first chapter and had to stop.


    What was most disappointing about Ilona Andrews’s story?

    I can't comment since I couldn't get through the bad narration to listen to the story. I may eventually try to read the book but it's not likely after this experience.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renée Raudman?

    Cynthia Halloway, Johanna Parker or maybe Gabra Zachman would work better as a narrator

    Story

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    What made the experience of listening to Touch the Dark the most enjoyable?

    The narration added to the story and brought it to life


    What did you like best about this story?

    Cassie Palmer is likable and relate-able with a good balance of strengths and weaknesses to be a heroine without being unbelievable due to perfection at all times.


    What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

    She's great at distinctive voice/tone for each character in a story populated by a multitude. She strikes the right tone throughout her performance.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series of books is very good so far, it has not flagged through book 5

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

    I would recommend this audiobook because the story is interesting, unique and the characters are vivid.

    Perhaps Karen Chance's Cassandra Palmer series with another strong female lead who isn't perfect but a true heroine


    Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

    Valek


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Is the promise of death by poison better than the noose?

  • Nice Girls Don't Live Forever: Jane Jameson, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 4 mins)

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nice Girls Don't Live Forever to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrator is perfect for the tone of this story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nice Girls Don't Live Forever?

    The humor for a subject that's usually treated so seriously was great. From beginning to end it's entertaining and witty.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She does great character voices and hits the right tone throughout the performance. It's terrific, one of my favorite narrators.


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

    Yes, and I listen to it repeatedly
