    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    If you could sum up Covet in three words, what would they be?

    Read the Series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None,takes a cast to make it good!.


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Half the experience!


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

    Well,if you consider spending credits on the others in the series "extreme", then yes. No strong emotion of any degree,just a decent Listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish J.R Ward would continue the series.

Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    What made the experience of listening to Storm Front the most enjoyable?

    Jim Butchers style of writing,James Marsters narration!,wonder why it never stayed on the air!(only 1 season??). Remembering this was the book that started my "addiction" to the Dresden Files,(Harry) in the first place.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry,& "Murphy",( & too many well written therein).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Didn't have a Favorite!,( all give character to the others!)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Too Good to Leave out of Life's Experiences!" ( as a series!). Like 3 hours a night for two weeks on TV kinda thing. Then go to DVD.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't deprive yourself of the series & Experience of the team of Characters!.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

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

    Yes!,Luke Daniels deserves a raise for his contribution to All the Audio book reads he has Done. To be honest I only visually read some of the book & decided to just Remeber the Audio versions rewards,& continued on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounded?

    Oberon,Aticus's Logic & Diplomacy.Too many to remember!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them!


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

    Yes!,Definately.

    Looking (with Great anticipation!), for "Tricked",to come out!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends on the "Friend" lol, I would probably say wait untill it's on the $4.95 list,or "it's Not Life Changing",(then Again I went through the following two Books in the series!). It's a Valley Girls Meets her deeply Troubled Fantasy White Prince Story!. A lot of of Eye rolling ( good grief!),on my part,& I was alone!.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jim Butcher,Kevin Herne,Orson Cott Card, too many to choose,I'm not sure. So many Great authors!.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    Not if given a choice,maybe in a different context of material,(like a Ferry in the Thea Harrison,Elder Races series books).


    Did Fifty Shades of Grey inspire you to do anything?

    Yes!, Move on to a completely different style of Book!


    Any additional comments?

    I bought it for the Hype!,continued for the desperate hope I would find out why it was so popular.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.
