    In financial straits and on a sure path to spinsterhood, Venetia Milton thought her stay at the remote, ramshackle Arcane House, far from society's prying eyes, would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engineer her own ravishment. She was there to photograph the relics and artifacts collected by a highly secretive organization, founded two centuries earlier by an eccentric alchemist.

    Susan says: "Great storyline, too!!"
    "Entertaining and intriguing"
    Overall

    This story was fun. The story moves along at a nice pace, the characters are well developed, and the plot is interesting. I found the narrator did a very good job creating a voice that lent an "image" to each character. I was a little disappointed at the start, thinking she had erred with one character, but as the story unfolded I found she had used precisely the right voice. I'll be listening to the subsequent titles in this group, and if they are similar to this one, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

    Edmund says: "THE edition of the book to hear"
    "A fun read"
    Overall

    This is another fun read by Elizabeth Peters. As usual, I found Ms. Peters' characters well developed, and the story moves along well enough. Ms. Rosenblatt is a wonderful narrator who infuses each character with personality and color, so that even in an audible version, one can see the story as it unfolds. If you are looking to escape and be entertained, this is a good choice. I will be reading the rest of the Vicky Bliss series after this.

    When her daddy is tortured and murdered by two women with no discernible motivation, Calley and her mother find themselves caught up in inexplicable events that exile them to Pensacola Beach. There, another woman awaits their presence, a woman who knows what Calley is and who seeks to control her. For Calley is no ordinary little girl.

    "A bit of a letdown"
    Overall

    The narrator is top-notch, and suits the ambience of the book very well. The story is interesting, but once it was finished I found myself rather disappointed and unsatisfied. The ending seemed rather contrived, and just did not seem worthy of how the story began.

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    Lesley says: "Yikes! Five stars for fright"
    "A Worthy Read"
    Overall

    From the very beginning this book captivated me. I was hesitant to read this because I enjoy Stephen King's writing so much, and I was afraid I would find myself comparing son to father. After a short time it was apparent to me that no comparisons were necessary. The story is intriguing, the characters well developed, and the pace just right.
    A tip of the hat for the several references to Stephen King titles through character dialogue. I look forward to a long reader relationship with Joe Hill. This is certainly a worthy debut.
