    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    Listing to this book was like being stuck in a B Private Eye movie and a badly written one. I gave it the first 1 1/2 hours and couldn't listen any longer. Too many snappy bad comparisom lines. Up there in my list of worse books I have read. Complete waste of a credit.

    Would you listen to The Cold, Cold Ground again? Why?

    Yes, I am re listening to it right now. Just too good to read once.


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    Doyle is an excellent narrator. I believe he really brought the story to life.


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

    Do not want to give away spoilers but I did nearly cry when one of the men is killed in and IRA attack. It is easy to get attached to McKinty"s characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the entire series and each book is better than the previous one.

    Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack. It's a relaxing break from her infernal home as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won't hesitate to execute her on sight. But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels.

    This book turned out to be much better than I expected. At first I felt that the narrators voice was too young for the character. As the story went on I didn't even notice it any longer. Angela Rysk does a great job with the various voices. The men sound like men. I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys PRN, or angel/demon books.You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to Debra Dunbar's next book.

    Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten-a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, not publish the book..


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alan Dean Foster again?

    Probably not.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oliver Wyman is a great narrator, he performed Monster Hunters Inc. and it is great.I think he has done a very good job with the material he was given.


    Was Lost and Found worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the audio version of this book. Part 1 was only ok. Part 2 I didn't get far into before quitting listening.Just too much back and forth boring chit chat, some "technical", seems to drag on.I noticed this in Part 1 but it wasn't too bad. A character is introduced near the end of Part 1. She is supposed to be some super brain, I got tired of listening to her go on and on.I am going to skip to the last chapter and see what happens. The premise is good unfortunately the story isn't so good.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones.

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    WOW this book is as good as the rest of the series. I thought it might not be as good, however it didn't disappoint. If you liked the other books you will like this one also.In the story we get a reunion with a lot of the characters from the past, most enjoyable.I want more of Cat and Bones books with Tavia Gilbert as narrator.

    Hugh and his men are faced with fighting creatures only thought to live in legend but which have been brought to Earth by evil bent on annihilating all the realms. That is Hugh's life - and he loves it. At least he did until he found himself staring into the angelic, innocent face of Lady Mina of Stone Crest. In all the time he has led the Shields Hugh has trusted his instinct to keep his men alive, yet now he doesn't know what to believe. Everything points to Mina as the evil summoning the creatures, but she proclaims her innocence. He should be able to see through her lies, if she is indeed lying, but his attraction to her blinds him to even that.

    This story is weak compared with her Immortal Guardians series. I could not get invested in the characters. It was more like a fairy tale "dragon slayer saves the princess" type of story.
    I will give the next book in the series a chance since I loved the Immortal Guardians.
    If Immortal Guardians was a dog I would say it was a German Shepard and Shields is a frou-frou lap dog.

    This is a great story that must be described as Thriller/Adventure/Science. At first I was not sure this book was for me but I kept listening and am glad I did. There is so much packed into this story that I cannot relate it without giving spoilers. I will say keep with it, don't give up. There is a great sea adventure/battle that lasts a long time but is really good. This is not my usual genre, PNR. However I still loved this book and can recommend it to all readers who enjoy a good suspense/action/thriller/science story and even PN fans.

    Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

    If you could sum up Kiss of the Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    Romance, Fantasy, Science


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrator. I enjoy listening to his voice, he puts so much feeling into each character they really come alive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but I would spoil the story for others is I were to explain it.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not want this to end. I was sad it did end and would love to see another book that continues on from this one. I know the author does not write sequels, but perhaps a future book about this family with flashbacks to the 15th century.

    Excellent voices for the women. A lot of times male readers do a bad job with the women's voices.

    Good read. Kept me interested and suspenseful.

    This Lovecraft classic is a must-have for every fan of classic terror. When a geologist leads an expedition to the Antarctic plateau, his aim is to find rock and plant specimens from deep within the continent. The barren landscape offers no evidence of any life form - until they stumble upon the ruins of a lost civilization. Strange fossils of creatures unknown to man lead the team deeper, where they find carved stones dating back millions of years. But it is their discovery of the terrifying city of the Old Ones that leads them to an encounter with an untold menace.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is like listening to a drooning prof at collage giving a boring lecture.
    It is told by one person in a monotone voice.
    If you are looking for a good story pass this up. I could not care about any
    of the characters, no development at all.
    Why this is considered a great book in the horror genre is beyond me.
    There isn't any thing even remotely exciting in this book.
