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

    Yes. The story itself was good but I think it took to long to actually get to the story. I understand how one must set the stage (sort a speak) but to shorten the beginning would have given us more to go on. I f she went back to actually set her original antagonists straight. The vice principle and the girl in her class. I would have understood.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Radiance?

    when she beat her feathered antagonist.


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    Hollie was fantastic!


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

    The Birth of Wings.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that getting to the point of the story quicker. To set a foreground and not finish the resolve before moving on to the second part of the story.

    Aziza Jane Stewart is living on borrowed time, and making a few mistakes in London seems like a good way to go out with a bang. But when two compelling strangers draw her into an ancient conflict, she realizes her curse isn't about death at all...it's about the power within her. The sexy giant following her says he can smell trouble on her skin, the smokeless fire and magic of the demons he was born and bred to hunt. Brandon may be an enforcer, but his reaction to her is anything but adversarial.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aziza was a great new character to the supernatural world. She is the sexiest character that hit the scene in a while.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes and know. He presented it well to me because I'm involved in the supernatural doctrine but for the new reader, he had to describe the same thing twice, which was good, but he just can't do it thin the same paragraph or chapter. I'm glad he didn't.


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

    I'm a stickler for the small things, so, when I heard two re-peats, I was a little annoyed with the technicians slip. It wasn't the reader or the writer. There was a cut to be reread and they didn't space it out far enough. I caught it but the lay listener would not have. so we're good!


    Any additional comments?

    this first installment of heat, sex and power was daring and good as hell... Keep it up my brother. just don't wait so long in-between books.

But when a mysterious plane crash kills off the heir presumptive of the Sandersville coven she has no choice. After stepping in to fill her sister’s shoes, Katherine realizes she didn’t have a clue - faery wars, depressed trolls and angry unicorns are just the beginning.

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

    absolutely. The only thing that is disappointing is the waiting. I now understand the reason why my friends, family and readers of my first book, tell me their going to have to reread the first book to remember why they liked it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the continuity between the writer and reader. The character differences was pronounced by the reader and that means a lot when audio is involved.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes she did. It was interesting how it was done actually. How she realized the differences between her mothers actual faces. She knew of the motherly side but the queenly side was eye opening.


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

    I found just bright spots in this articular reading. She was very thorough and she took her time. so, no I didn't find anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. However long it takes to write the next installment. Please let us know at the end of each book how long it will be for the next one. LOL
