    What made the experience of listening to Flutter the most enjoyable?

    It was a good series that I enjoyed. I have over 1400 Audible books and this one series has sadden me. Alice should be with Peter. Although Jack is a good person, He has stolen what was his brothers. Jack has an internal problem because he has been dead then brought back. Jack knew in given his blood to her would be a betrayel of his brother and the hate towards his brother is based on his own guilt. Alice should be told that he knew in given her his blood that it would break the bond between her and Peter. To me and most people I talk to about this series, that it is a series breach to your audience. I still Love the story but to hurt Peter further is cruel. And Jack is a coward to the first degree.

    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.

    Would you listen to Burn with Me again? Why?

    I already have.


    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.

    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

    Seven years have passed since Mordecai's battle with the Shining God, Celior, and since that time his control of his abilities has vastly improved. He has at last envisioned a use for the 'God-Stone,' but the gods want vengeance and now seek to destroy everything he has built. The secrets of the past threaten the future of his kingdom, his family, and perhaps humanity itself, unless Mordecai can discover the meaning of 'Illeniel's Doom.'

    Any additional comments?

    Just that there was a few scenes that made me scream with how it was written. The characters should have came to a different conclusion and the way the acted to me was unintelligent and at best, childish. Even though it was a good story, I had to give a bad mark against story.

    I never read the printed version but I wouldn't need to read it with the performance of Tim Bruce.


    What other book might you compare Hatch to and why?

    Well, I could have given it another book similar but it wouldn't do it justice. I believe Hatch would be a stand alone book. you can't compare the righteous hero in hatch with the selfishness of the other books character. even if the character in the other book finally coming around at the end.


    What does Tim Bruce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tim was perfect for this book. all characters were geared for his brand of action.


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

    nope but it raised my blood pressure of few times.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Do away with the flash backs. The decisions were bad for teenagers. Letting dragon get caught while they still had a chance in the open with TV cameras as well. It just didn't make any sense.


    What was most disappointing about Mari Mancusi’s story?

    That the decisions were bad and the choices the main character made were just plain bad. To let her bond get torn away by a guy she just met. to let her Dragon be taken by the bad guys. She had already made up her mind to put the dragon first but when it counted she acted as if it just happen and she's acting dumb make a decisions to let Conner kill Emmy is completely stupid.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A better reader that made more sense or a more believable reader. Taking the truck and running into the other one.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It moved the story because I knew they would have to fight the bad guys but with all the self sacrificing. and self loathing is just not what a teenagers do.


    Any additional comments?

    I hop the last book makes more sense. I hope Conner shows more redeeming qualities cause all he seems to be is a killer or labeled a killer. But he just wont seem to kill a bad guy at the least possible times.
