    When the goddess of magic was murdered, Elminster’s world shattered. Once the most powerful wizard in the world, immortal, beloved of the goddess of magic, and the bane of villainy, he is now a tired old man. He is powerful but mortal, and with all the enemies a man who makes a habit of saving the world tends to accumulate. To make matters worse, Elminster has needs - feeding powerful magic items to the Simbul, his lover, is the only thing that keeps her sane - but their increasingly risky collection leads his enemies right to him.

    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombian drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong… and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home. Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years, having no idea that he was still alive....

    Where does Wild Card rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best of the 57 I have purchased this year!


    What other book might you compare Wild Card to and why?

    No this one was unique - hit too close to home -


    What about Clarissa Knightly’s performance did you like?

    Kept it flowing


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

    yes - my fiance was killed in the line of duty - Bella's character captures the loss, the nightmares, the disbelief, the sorrow, the unwillingness to move on despite the world moving forward, Bella's is left in that house alone - most of his family forgets her - but she has to survive or she will lose what possessions she has - so she makes herself go through the motions but is never really living without him. SO CLOSE TO THE REAL THING - mear words from me can not express how this book made me feel.


    Any additional comments?

    YES - right a non-fiction book just like this one and modify itI am more of a technical writer - journaled but can not make a story!!!
