    He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty.

    This one was better than the first two books. The narrator for the men was fantastic. Not so great for the women, but not horrid. The story was fun and sexy. I felt the author did a good job of merging fantasy and reality. This is one I would definately recommend.

    Story

    This new narrator is horrible for the voice of the main character and the women. His voice made most of the characters sound like depressed wimps; very monotone and just horrible. The story continued and was as good as the first 2, but I almost had to return the book because of the narrator. If the mistake of keeping this guy as the narrator had continued to book 4 I would have returned the whole series and gotten them on kindle.

    Story

    This was a horrible book that I find difficult to believe was written by experienced authors. Add the abominable narration and the booked was a waste of a credit. The story was far fetched and glib and the narration was practically robotic. This is the first audio book that I couldn't force myself to finish it was so bad.

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    Story

    It would be hard to express in words my disappointment in this book. I love Dean Koontz, he is my all time favorite author, but this is the slowest and most boring book I have ever read. I kept waiting for the book to get going and have a something of a climax but it never happened. It's as if Koontz has been abducted by alien or demonic body snatchers the book was that bad. So while I love all other Koontz books don't get this one; it was painful to listen to and I couldn't wait for it to end. If you don't want to know what happens read no further. The story is told in first person by a young African American boy who comes from a musical family and wants to be a piano man. His father is a dead beat looser who leaves his wife and kid and then hooks up with bad people who in the end make a bomb to blow up a bank so they can steal money. The boy, his son, is in the bank with friends when it blows. His best friend's sister dies and he becomes paralyzed from the waist down. Because he can identify the bad guys to the cops they come for him a few months later and his grandfather beats them with a baseball bat and the cops come to arrest them. All of that took nearly 13 hours. Do not get this book.

    Koontz - please don't write another one like this. It sucked and is not nearly as great of story as you have produced in the past.

    Daniel Byrne is an investigator for the Vatican’s secretive Office of the Devil’s Advocate - the department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over 10 years and 721 cases, not one miracle he tested has proved true. But case #722 is different; Daniel’s estranged uncle, a crooked TV evangelist, has started speaking in tongues - and accurately predicting the future. Daniel knows Reverend Tim Trinity is a con man. Could Trinity also be something more? The evangelist himself is baffled by his newfound power.

    It's rare for me to give 5 stars for everything, but this book deserved it. The narrator was amazing and absolutely made the book. Any short comings in the story were completely overcome by the narrator who was fabulous. The story was really good and thoroughly enjoyable. Good character development and plenty of twists. Definitely recommend it.

    On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East - the Fatah Revolutionary Council. But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack.

    The story was just okay. The story wasn't original and the characters were not that memorable, but it wasn't bad. There were a lot, and I mean a lot, of F*** bombs which I didn't like. There were also a lot of incorrect details regarding the mentioned religion and area. The author got far more wrong than right, so be careful not to believe everything you hear; especially in regards to the religion.

    Story

    The narrator is fantastic. The story is just okay, not great but not horrible. However, I don't appreciate a lot of foul language in my books, especially unnecessary bad language and this books has a lot of "F___" bombs in it that don't fit. So because the story was just barely okay and had really bad language I would recommend skipping this one.

    Steven James' Christy Award-nominated crime thriller pits FBI Special Agent Bowers against a serial killer who enjoys torturing women. After visiting the mountain vistas where the murderer posed his dead victims, Bowers receives a taunting call from the "Illusionist." Although Bowers gets close, his insidious foe continues to elude him.

    Story

    The book is a 3/4. It has great villains and the cops are decent. The story developed well with some great twists and wasn't totally predictable. The writer couldn't pull off the heroes humor or coffee quirk though. If it had a better narrator it would have ranked higher. Its not that the narrator did a horrible job, its just that his voice was perfect for the villain who had very few lines, but retched for the hero. The narrators voice turned the image of the hero into a pathetic loser.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. For Emma, life had stopped with Nathan’s death. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there - Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags.

    Story

    I admire anyone who can write a book; however, this one was not only written for young teenagers, but comes across as written by one. Everything, and I mean everything, about this book screams "I was written by a 14 year old;" a novice 14 year old with delusions at that. The book also has horrible language. The plot, the characters, the overall story was very immature, and poorly developed. The narrator was awful and flat as well. I enjoy well written young adult books, but this was not well written. No redeemable qualities in this book.
