I always like visiting the world of Dallas and Rourke. The mystery here was pretty good, though I thought as we went along there were too many coincidences to actually be coincidence. I knew they would all pull together in the end wrapped in a neat bow. I always love the interactions between Eve and Rourke. Even when they're pissed at each other they help one another. It was nice to meet a member of Peabody's family and I loved the fact that she and McNab finally got together. It's been a while in coming. The cameo by Mavis was nice but I did miss her throughout most of the book. She's such a colorful character. Susan Ericksen as narrator did fabulously well, as always. Her voices are so consistent for the characters from book to book. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
This book was a quick listen, was very sweet and utterly predictable. As it was written in 1988 the references to technology was very dated but it doesn't really detract much from the story. I liked the family that the book introduces and am curious about the next books but not enough to immediately purchase the next book. The narrator was perfectly adequate and I found her voice a little sweet.
I liked this book. It reminded me of the Gail Carriger Soulless books set in the present instead of the past. The idea of a null is very interesting. The storyline was well thought out and I enjoyed listening to the world unfold. I liked the characters and enjoyed the romantic triangle that is setting up. I hope that Melissa Olson turns this into a series. I thought Amy McFadden was a fantastic narrator. This is the first time I've listened to anything she narrated and I would definitely listen to her again.
This was a great ending to a fabulous trilogy. There are enough minor threads left that I think she could definitely write more in this world but all of the major plotlines are answered. This was a new take on the zombie idea and I really enjoyed it. I liked that the two main characters can stand on their own apart from each other and aren't dependent on the other for everything. I did see the major plot twist coming but I didn't see how it came about and the way it was done really surprised me. I loved all of the characters in the whole trilogy and I liked the new ones we got to see here. I would definitely read the next thing Amy Plum writes. I thought Julia Whelan did a great job as a narrator. Her French pronunciation sounded great to me (although how would I really know) and I could always tell who was speaking. I'm a little sad that the trilogy is finished. I would like to know what happens next.
I think these books are really hitting their stride. I enjoyed this book immensely. There was tons of action between the vampires and the shifters and I really didn't see the villain coming which always makes me enjoy a book more. I loved the advancement of the relationship between Merit and Ethan. I did miss Mallory and Catcher as they didn't seem to be around quite as much as in the previous books. I'm really enjoying this book series and can't wait to listen to the next one. As a narrator, I like Cynthia Holloway and think she does an ok job though she doesn't differentiate between the characters as much as I like.
I actually enjoyed the first book in the series but I think this one was better. It built upon the building blocks of the first book to make this one more in depth. We get to see more about Merit's family and the way she grew up as well as advancing her relationships with Morgan, Ethan, Catcher and others in the house. She makes some more friends and seems to make peace with her unexpected change into a vampire. I like that Merit is snarky and doesn't take herself too seriously. I like Cynthia Holloway as a narrator but I do think she could differentiate between the voices a little more.
I liked the book. The premise was interesting with a few changes from the regular 'vampire' mythos and I liked the characters. I would have enjoyed seeing a little more of the material Merit was studying as a grad student but that's just personal preference. I didn't guess who the bad guy was until the very end and I'm looking forward to listening to the next book. I always enjoy listening to Cynthia Holloway as a narrator.
I thought this book was good enough to warrant wanting to listen to the second one but not right away. It was a decent mystery but I think I was expecting it to be funnier. The back and forth between the narrator and the killer was interesting but I'm not sure it really added much to the story. As for the narration, I didn't like the two narrators. It took a lot of getting used to and was a bit jarring. Separately I think they both did a good job but I didn't care for the way they were melded together with the sound effects. Susie Breck's voice also took a bit to get used to but after a bit I enjoyed her.
While this book had Honor Harrington as the main character she isn't in most of the book. This book was mostly layer upon layer of politics and how exactly the breakdown in communication came at the negotiating table. Some characters I feel badly for and others I just hate more and more. While some of the book seemed to drag a bit and I admit that I took several breaks to listen to other books, it was actually really fascinating. This is not however one of my favorite books of the series. It felt more like the whole books was setting up the next book in which the war must actively resumes. I wouldn't recommend reading this book without reading the books that have come before, starting with On Basilisk Station. I do like Allyson Johnson as a narrator and I like how she tries to keep the accents consistent between people of the same star nation. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series.
Well, I didn't see the ending coming. There was plenty of action and quite a bit more information of exactly what the rules of the revenant are. I enjoyed the extra information and still find the idea of revenant very interesting. The new characters of Violette and Arthur are an interesting addition but I missed more of Charlotte. I can't wait for the next book to come out. I thought Julia Whelan did a good job narrating and pronouncing the french names.
I enjoyed this. The beginning was horrifying but Lacey's actions were funny. I enjoyed the story but it wasn't my favorite book of Molly Harpers. Lacey's family was very interesting and I abhor her husband but I did enjoy Lacey's journey of growing up. I liked the way the story wrapped up and it wasn't something I really saw coming. Amanda Ronconi did a very good job narrating and breathing life into the story.
