    Surviving sixty thousand years takes cunning and more than a little luck. But in the twenty-first century, Adam confronts new dangers-someone has found out what he is, a demon is after him, and he has run out of places to hide. Worst of all, he has had entirely too much to drink. An artful blending of a first-person confessional, sci-fi, adventure, fantasy, and humor, Immortal introduces a world with vampires, demons and other “magical” creatures, yet a world without actual magic.

    I have to admit - I almost gave up on this one about 1/3 of the way through. But Im glad I stuck with it, because by the end I really liked it. The main character is an immortal who reminds me a lot of Duncan Mcleod of the Highlander TV series. The book has a nice plot and I really liked the characters. It's a little hard to follow at times because it jumps around in time so much, but it works. Jeff Steitzer does a really nice job with the audio.

    I recommend this book, and plan on purchasing the second book in the series when it becomes available on Audible.

    Daniel Faust, Las Vegas sorcerer and career criminal, has never pulled the trigger on an innocent man. When the infernal Prince Sitri challenges him to do just that, though, he can't walk away. His lover, Caitlin, is Sitri's right hand... and if Daniel refuses the job, he'll never see her again. While Daniel works to unravel Sitri's twisted game, putting his principles and his life on the line, Caitlin has problems of her own.

    This was an excellent follow up to the first book in this series. It's easy to fall in love with the characters and root for them.. the action is fun and its's a good paced story.. there is a lot of room for growth and development of these characters... I look forward to the next one in the series!

    Take three speedboats, a disgruntled ghostwriter, and a hit TV show starring a gorgeous but impossible diva and created by a driven genius who may be losing his marbles. Add a fearless and gleefully profane stuntwoman, an ancient Mafioso with a chihuahua, and a revenge-crazed blonde in gladiator sandals. Stir in a thug with a heart of gold and an inveterate slacker who yearns for glory.

    This book is kinda mediocre. It's OK.. nothing wrong with it. A nice story with fun characters. I just can't say it's great in any way. Not a lot of great action. Not a lot of laugh out loud moments. Not a brilliant story. The reader sounds like he is in his 60's.. he's not bad but not great. The best I can say is that there are a lot of plot twists. If you have read all the really great books and are just looking for something to pass the time, this might work for ya....

    Ever since Martin Banks and his fellow computer geeks discovered that reality is just a computer program to be happily hacked, they've been jaunting back and forth through time, posing as medieval wizards and having the epic adventures that other nerds can only dream of having. But even in their wildest fantasies, they never expected to end up at the mercy of the former apprentice whom they sent to prison for gross misuse of magic and all-around evil behavior.

    Story

    Like all Time Travel books, this story falls apart if you start poking at it. But the author knows that and admits it up front.

    That said, this series is very entertaining. The characters are lovable and that dialogue gave me a lot of chuckles and laughs. Luke Daniels is one of the elite book readers and he delivers his usual stellar performance.

    I recommend this book!

    Nobody knows the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas like Daniel Faust, a sorcerer for hire and ex-gangster who uses black magic and bullets to solve his clients' problems. When an old man comes seeking vengeance for his murdered granddaughter, what looks like a simple job quickly spirals out of control. Soon Daniel stands in the crossfire between a murderous porn director; a corrupt cop with a quick trigger finger; and his own former employer, a racket boss who isn't entirely human.

    Story

    The main question I ask myself about each book is: Did I become emotionally invested in the characters? So many books these days fail that test. I'm happy to say that this one meets that test with flying colors. Daniel Faust is a very likable protagonist.The book got me interested in the very beginning , and the story is riveting throughout..whatever the audible equivalent of "I couldn't put the book down" is, applies here.

    If you are a fan of the Harry Dresden books, you will love this book. I can't wait for the next one in the series! I give this book my highest recommendation.

Never mind law school or that degree; Serge becomes a freelance fixer - wildcat paralegal and pilgrim to the hallowed places where legal classics of the big screen such as Body Heat, Cool Hand Luke, and Absence of Malice were filmed practically in his own backyard.

    Christine Temetri is at her wits’ end. For years she’s covered the increasingly bizarre activities of End Times cults for the Banner, a religious news magazine. Yet Christine, who once dreamed of being a "real" writer, has nothing to show for the gig other than a regular paycheck and serious doubt that Armageddon will occur in time for her next deadline. But after a mysterious man entrusts her with a locked briefcase and orders to "take it to Mercury", Christine finds herself face-to-face with a ping-pong-playing angel by the name of Galileo Mercury.

    It's not a bad book, but it's just not a great book. I wanted to like it and stuck with it to about the 3/4 mark, but had to give up when I realized that I just don't care how it ends. The characters aren't really likable, the humor didn't make me laugh, there was no action, the back story was really boring. It just kinda wanders on and on. Others may like it but this book just didn't do it for me.

    At a high point in his career, Artie Lange performed a sold-out show in Carnegie Hall-and he did it with a pocketful of heroin. In the midst of a deep, self-destructive depression, addicted to heroin, cocaine, and prescription drugs, he lashed out at everyone around him-from his cohosts on The Howard Stern Show to celebrity guests and even his longtime friends. Then came his legendary meltdown on-air, with 6 million people listening, after which Lange pulled himself together enough to go to a buddy's bachelor party in Amsterdam.

    Story

    Artie's first book was pretty entertaining. His second book is just depressing and sad. He tells us that he was lying to us in the first book when he says he got his life together, but now he is telling the truth. But then at the end of the book he says he was lying earlier in the book.

    Artie did not narrate his own book , and that was part of the problem. If he had, I might have laughed more, or at least understand when he was being sarcastic vs when he was lying.

    The only value this book has it that it might help you understand the mind of any drug addict friends that you might have.

    I'm a fan of Howard Stern and was a fan of Artie Lange. Until I read this... not, not so much.

    Half-devil and miles from anything resembling heroic, perpetual underdog Frank "Triggaltheron" Trigg is the last man standing against Armageddon. As the favorite nephew of the Devil, Frank has led a troubled life, but he'd always had his uncle's influence to fall back on. Now, with God and Lucifer coming to terms and leaving existence to fend for itself, his once exalted status of Anti-Christ-to-be does little to endear him to the hordes of angels and demons running amok in the Godless world.

    Story

    You have to get past the amateur narration on this one to enjoy the story. There's a tiny bit of low hiss in the background - apparently they didn't have access to a soundproof studio, and the narrator has some odd long pauses and minor stumbles. Maybe I'm just spoiled, being used to pros like Luke Daniels and Oliver Wyman. Once you get past that, it's a mildly entertaining story. The Protagonist is interesting... a little like Kadrey's Sandman Slim. Only problem is that the author doesnt really give us any reason to like the Protagonist. That should be rule #1 of every book - give the readers a reason to root for your guy. If there's a second book in this series, I might check it out... If someone didn't talk me into giving Harry Dresden 4 books worth I might never had discovered the best series ever. I'll say this: this has potential to be something great.
