    As the Resistance leader, Zarya Starska's only goal is to topple the government that destroyed her entire family and left her penniless. Her biggest asset is a mysterious man known only as Kere. But Kere has a dark secret. Born into a world that is as privileged as it is corrupt, his real name is Darling Cruel - and he is heir to the government Zarya wants to overthrow. No one has ever seen the real man behind the legend - no one except Zarya. But when she allows a weapon he designed to be used against his beloved sister, all bets are off.

    The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy.… Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong. Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind. What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life....

    Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard?

    Where does Infamous rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoy so many. Holter brings the story to life. He can make me feel the emotions the writer is trying to convey.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Infamous?

    For me its the unknown with his relationship to Acheron, they have been thru alot together in the discovering of who the other is.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If I had only these two choices then I would say not well spent. The story line is really hard to follow at times, not sure what she is really after.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

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

    The narrator can make a story come to life or not. Llyana does that.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jacob, because I am a Native American, but mostly because I think most people have been in love and lost that person.


    What about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance did you like?

    She brought this story to life.


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

    I wanted to. I would find myself listening in my car then putting headphones on continue listeing.

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

    Yes in some aspects. Ms. Meyer is an awsoe writer, but when you put an Awsome narrator, they have the ability to really bring the story to life.


    What other book might you compare New Moon to and why?

    There are just to many to think about.


    Have you listened to any of Ilyana Kadushin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listen to the whole Twilight Series and currently relistening to them.


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

    I did laugh and cry. I know drivers in othervehicles must of thought I was a nut case.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
