    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.

    Quickly join the ranks of the happiest, healthiest, wealthiest Top 2% in the world! Researchers have confirmed what many of us have intuitively known for most of our lives: the Top 2% of Americans set the trend for clothes, cars, entertainment, even food. But, more importantly, they are also healthier and happier (despite any myths you may have heard), and have greater control of their time.

    Story

    I have no idea how this book has the high ratings it does. It is absolutely the worst self help book I have ever come across. It's nauseating and reeks of infomercial snake oil scam. It is full of contradictions and nothing new. For example, it talks about finding your passion, which is a good thing. The issue is they claim to you can be passionate about anything if you learn more about it. They had the listener pick something they had no interest in and claimed if you knew more about it you would have more passion about it and that's what's needed. Interest and curiosity do not passion make. Most of the time while I listened to this book I wanted to track down the people who put it together and slap them repeatedly with a baseball bat. Don't waste the credit or the money because this book just sucks.

    Story

    In the beginning the story was good and the characters were interesting. The author does a great job of creating and describing the period. However, about mid way I kept hoping some higher power would strike everyone down so the book would just end. It was laborious and dragged out far too long. I hate abridged novels, but this book really needs to become one. It is 30 hours long and could easily have been condensed down to 15-17 hours without losing a thing. The narrator was great. The characters get to the point of being unbelievable and I lost interest in caring about them. Just to get through the book I listened at a higher speed and frankly the book got painful after hour 17.

    This was a good young adult novel. It was more unique than others. The writing was definitely young in style. The best thing about this book is its morals and how clean it was. It sets a great example for young adults in a romantic situation. I wouldn't waste a credit on it but a couple of bucks, sure.

    This was a really good book. It had a unique story line and the characters were good. The best part is it was a romance but didn't have all the gratuitous sex in it that so many do. The female narrator was not good at all. Flat and robotic much of the time. The male narrator was great. It did have several F bombs which weren't needed, but for $2.00 you it was well worth it.

    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.

    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.

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.
