    Daniel Amen, M.D., one of the world's foremost authorities on the brain, has news for you: your brain is involved in everything you do; learn to care for it properly, and you will be smarter, healthier, and happier in as little as 15 days!

    Kenneth W. James says: "A large advertisement and excessive repetition"

    The books starts off slow and kills your interest before you have an opportunity to learn how to make your brain great. I already know how important it is to wear my seat belt, get enough sleep, and to protect my head. Really disappointing!!

    Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.

    Story

    I did not listen to the sample audio, and I did not check the narrators name before purchasing this book. That was a mistake.
    After a few minutes, I stopped the book. The reader and my ears are not in agreement.
    Cannot review the story; I am a Coben fan, but could not get past the performance.

    In The Dragon Factory, Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences square off against two separate groups of corrupt scientists. The beautiful but twisted Jakoby Twins are creating transgenic monsters and genetically enhanced mercenaries for sale to the highest bidder. Their father, who takes evil to an entirely new level, is using cutting-edge science to complete the Nazi master-race program.

    Story

    ...I was finally able to finish the book. It's any interesting story, but it did not catch and hold my attention. The performance is outstanding. Team shake ups are almost overshadowed by the other story revelations. This is an early hiccup. I'm not giving up on Maberry or Joe Ledger, there is too much promise in the series.

    Meet Mr. Grant - the is a wonderful series. The writing is funny, rich and exciting with characters that you will want to know more about. The story is compelling, and the author's use of London as a key character is beautifully executed.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Story

    It's easy to find yourself hooked on Joe Ledger and his team. He is a flawed hero with demons, both figurative and literal, dogging his heels. Trying to save the world from Walkers/zombies with a team of men you just wiped the floor with is a bit of a challenge. There is a little romance (nothing too graphic), the language is not too off color, lots of weapon lingo, and tons of gadgets for the geek squaders - so it's a good car listen with others. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    Story

    So, there I was, really enjoying this series when the writer insisted on giving me the Fox News bites of the world. Darn it!! I just wanted some shot-it-up-mind-numbing fun in a safe non-drink or think way and the constant Obama-bashing-come-get-my-gun-from-my-rotting-corpse-BS effn killed it. If I have to get the bites, I'm out. Enjoyed the series, and I love a good debate, but the didactic nature of this is a NOGO for me. If that does not deter you, you'll abosolutely love the book. As always the narrator is perfect.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Story

    Fortunately, I can hide the cover. There is know way you can convince anyone that the story is really good with the cheesy cover. Vlad is one of my favorite characters, and even an old master vampire can have trouble with the"L-word." If you enjoyed the first book, you'll enjoy this one. Leila's determination to get the guy, and on terms that she can thrive with make the story charming, heart breaking, and funny. The author continues to slowly bring bits of Vlad's story out. Leila is growing. She is gaining a better understanding of Vlad's world. Her family is back to drive her nuts, and love her. No, it's not Shakespeare, it's not supposed to be (look at the cover;-), it's just a fun story that makes you cheer for the lovers.

    I think this will have to be the end of the series for me...I just cannot take it. Rachel has outlasted my endurance for stupid. I enjoyed the storyline and the supporting cast of characters, but Rachel is like the talented kid in your family that decides to break the law for a living. At some point you turn away from the wreckage, this book is that point for me. :-(

    A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer - a woman - who travels with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the undead. She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren, the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived centuries without companionship or love.

    Mary says: "Loved it!!"
    "Did they pay the Editor??"
    Overall

    I enjoy the writer's play on the "two halves of one soul" concept; but the gawd awful rhyming must stop-it's painful. I've listened/read each of the books; I enjoyed Possession. Unlike Possession, Slayer does not show growth. The horrid rhyming makes it challenging to want to continue.While I get the excitement of developing your own language, the repetitive nature of the text is grating in English and just bleeping annoying in Carpathian. The writer has a great concept, and no one is better at love/sex scenes, but excise the terms "feminine sheaf," "molten ANYTHING," "fiery ANYTHING," and "wet channel" from the lexicon. The writer's editor is not helping her.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "Amazing, Painful, and Hilarious"

    I fell in love with this book. If you have ever lived with a dog, you will appreciate the narrators perspective. Enzo provides a beautiful insight into a dog's life. Well done!!
