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

    I would recommend this my friends. Ms. Cole does a great job of world building so that you are easily immersed. Robert Petkoff is also amazing.

    I loved Conrad. He's a bad guy who is impossible to write off as just being evil.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene where Conrad gathered the newspapers for Noemi.


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

    Yes!

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Where does The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would be in the top 15.


    What other book might you compare The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires to and why?

    I would say that this book is very comparable to How to Seduce a Naked Werewolf in that the heroine was feisty and maybe a bit over her head and the hero is a bit troubled and a bit sweet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning did a great job of sucking me in.


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

    This book was very funny.


    Any additional comments?

    It is definitely worth a credit.

    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    Fair warning, this is not an uplifting book. However, the characters are rich and their storylines are complex and messy, in the way that families often are. This was one that I could not turn off. It is definitely worth your credit.

Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago.

    This book was a fresh take on vampire lore. It had a good mix of action and romance. I did feel that the pacing was a bit off - at times it felt that the story was rushed. I also found some of the dialogue to be a bit over the top. Overall, however, I enjoyed the book and would definitely try another in the series.

    Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless - and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost…until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before. Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival.

    Story

    This book was very enjoyable but I felt that the performance was a bit flat. This was surprising to me because I have listened to other books narrated by Mr. Bellmore that were quite good. While the performance was flat in my opinion, it was not ruinous.

    As for the book, it was fast-paced with a twist that I was not expecting. I enjoyed how the romance developed between Zacharel and Annabelle and the changes that we got to see in Zacharel. This was a book where I had trouble turning it off.

    This book is worth a credit.

    A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America's story from the bottom up - from the point of view of, and in the words of, America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers.

    I enjoyed Ria's personality.

    Yes, something about her characterization of Ria was off to me.

So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six-and-a-half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.

    Where does Spell of the Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the ending was not predictable. The major conflict was set up in a way that I thought I knew what was going to happen but it ended up going another way. I enjoyed the twist.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to other work by Mr. Gigante and I would say that this performance is on par with his other good work.
