  • Undead and Unwed: Queen Betsy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By MaryJanice Davidson
    • Narrated By Nancy Wu
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

    Book Professor says: "Such a fun book!"
    "Lighthearted Dark Fantasy"

    I have to admit I really loved the lighthearted sillyness of a shoe loving queen of the vampires. I'm personally not a big fan of dark brooding vampires, so this was really a lot of fun.

    My only gripe is that it's a little more sexual than I would have liked, not that I mind a little bit but the author can be very explicit which is a little wierd for me since I like to listen to my books at work (with headphones but still...).

    Otherwise I'm really enjoying the series and I can't help spending all my credits so I can read the rest of them.

  • Bending Adversity: Japan and the Art of Survival

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By David Pilling
    • Narrated By Tim Andes Pabon

    In Bending Adversity, Financial Times Asia editor David Pilling presents a fresh vision of Japan, drawing on his own deep experience, as well as observations from a cross section of Japanese citizenry, including novelist Haruki Murakami, former prime minister Junichiro Koizumi, industrialists and bankers, activists and artists, teenagers and octogenarians. Through their voices, Pilling captures the dynamism and diversity of contemporary Japan.

    Kallan Resnick says: "Good book, but terribly read"
    "Great Japan info"

    This book was well written and informative about non pop culture Japan and the issues it's facing. It was a fairly objective view of history, crisis and current issues.

  • The Iron King: The Iron Fey, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Julie Kagawa
    • Narrated By Khristine Hvam

    Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.

    Arwen says: "I found this mediocre"

    This book was fantastic, it was a wonderful blend of traditional Faerie elements (Oberon and Titania, Seelie and Unseelie Fae etc.) But also adds some suprisingly modern twists on the folklore. It has a wonderful romance and the characters are interesting and deep. I found it very easy to relate to the main character, a teen girl with typical teen troubles embarking on a fantastic quest and growing as a person. I can't wait for a sequel to come out because I could not stop listening to this one.

  • Od Magic

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Patricia A. McKillip
    • Narrated By Gabrielle de Cuir
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Brenden Vetch has a gift. With an innate sense he cannot explain to himself or describe to others, he is able to connect to the agricultural world, nurturing gardens to flourish and instinctively knowing the healing properties each plant and herb has to offer. But Brenden's gift isolates him from people and from becoming part of a community - until the day he receives a personal invitation from the Wizard Od.

    Carol says: "Magic and mystery"

    I really loved this book, it was wonderfully enchanting. This author is very descriptive and it isn't very difficult to picture exactly what she's describing. She also has very interesting and in depth characters without being to overwhelming. I also really liked the resolution at the end.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Stefan Rudnicki, Harlan Ellison, Gabrielle de Cuir
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"

    I picked this book up in high school and never finished it for some reason, but this time I couldn't stop listening. I really like how he made his super smart character feel so very relatable. Very interesting story.

  • Moonheart

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Charles de Lint
    • Narrated By Paul Michael Garcia

    When Sara and Jamie discovered the artifacts, they sensed the pull of a dim, distant place, a world of misty forests, ancient magics, mythical beings, ageless bards...and restless evil.

    Vava says: "Enjoyable, different storyline"
    "Really Enjoyed It"

    I was really captivated by this book. I absolutely love the twist on Welsh mythology and giving mythological characters a new life. I also love how relatable every character is, they all have strengths as well as flaws. Although I did find it really obvious which characters he was going to kill off, it was always the ones you weren't very attached to. I also loved the crossover between Welsh and Native American with a time travel twist, really interesting.

  • The Illuminator

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Brenda Rickman Vantrease
    • Narrated By Simon Jones
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It is England, in the 14th century, a time of plague, political unrest, and the earliest stirrings of the Reformation. The printing press had yet to be invented, and books were rare and costly, painstakingly lettered by hand and illuminated with exquisite paintings. Finn is a master illuminator who works not only for the Church but also, in secret, for John Wycliffe of Oxford, who professes the radical idea that the Bible should be translated into English for everyone to read.

    Taddea says: "Historical Disaster"
    "Very Interesting"

    I picked this book because I really like Simon Jones as a narrator but I really liked the book in it's own right. It had a really great historical feeling with just a slight bit of the mystical. Vantrease was really good at really fleshing out all of her characters, although there were a couple that I just wanted to smack sometimes. She also really captured the way classes and social status worked in the dark ages.

  • The Forgotten Garden

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Kate Morton
    • Narrated By Caroline Lee
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    Robert says: "Six stars if I could"
    "A pleasure to listen to"

    I have to say I really loved this book. I usually read fantasy and I have a passion for fairy tales. I'm not sure what lead me to this book but I'm really glad I got it.

    I was a little worried at first about how I would be able to follow a book with so many twists and turns and points of view, but this author is a master storyteller and I was enthralled from the very start.

    The narrators voice is very pleasant and I had no trouble distinguishing between the characters. I'm sad now that I am finished, but look forward to reading more books by this author.
