    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.

    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.'

    I had none.

    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.

    She has been dealing with the demonic all her life, so when her brother gets tangled up with a demon named Sparkles, "Luna the Lunatic" rolls in on her motorcycle to save the day. Armed with the ability to harm demons, her scathing sarcasm, and a hefty chip on her shoulder, Luna gathers the most unusual of allies, teaming up with a green-eyed heroin addict and a snarky demon of "some import". After all, outcasts of a feather should stick together...even until the end.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hatch to be better than the print version?

    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.

    I would love to see a book two in this trilogy.

    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.

    Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He's the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised. His only real talent is his ability with a sword, and his only real chance at finding honor or a home is a desperate dream of joining the King's Guard. Then, Daven receives a new future when Master Claighan invites him to study magic at the Academy. The wizard offers to make him into a new kind of soldier: a swordsman equally skilled with forged blades and mystic forces.

    What made the experience of listening to Taming Fire the most enjoyable?

    The Reader was most unexpected. He took his time to give the words more mass and shape when he paused on certain words. He also made the story real to the imagination. When your involved in a book, you have to be able to match certain aspects with the rhythm of the story. For example (if she grabs his left hand, that means his right hand is free, but if he takes an arrow in his right while holding a sword, then when the writer say's he dropped his sword and shouldered her out of the way and she hurt herself while falling, then her left hip of left hand would hurt because he shoved her with his left and she fell on her left side). as small as this sounds, you have to be able to see it in your head as its being read or your mind would reject it.


    What other book might you compare Taming Fire to and why?

    Stormdancer -by Jay Kristoff.


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

    He really knew the function of the story and it's lead characters as if he talked to them everyday at work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when he finally confronted the King and his rabble.

    I am highly anticipating the next installment of this trilogy. It was a very good read.
