    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    What made the experience of listening to The Overton Window the most enjoyable?

    The combination of fact and fiction kept my attention throughout.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author (can you believe it was Glenn Beck) wove together the essentials of any good book, romance, intrigue and familial conflict. No humor, of course, but none was required.


    What about James Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I haven't heard this narrator before, so I was prepared to be put off, but another surprise, he was great. He seemed involved in the telling of the story and never sounded canned. Congrats to James Daniel!


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

    I should have cried, but it makes me stand a little straighter, take more seriously the small things I can do and to feel a little less helpless in this America that has already destroyed 70% of what I trusted and loved about our country.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Glenn for bringing to life the real potential if all Americans do not take more seriously their role in sustaining our Constitutional Rights. You are a God gifted man and a man given a mission for these times. You have brought it down to common man to really

    Merry Gentry pretends to be human. She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency. But all of this is just a disguise; in fact she is a princess of faerie, her real name is Meredith Nic Essus, and she had to flee the Dark Court of Faerie because of attempts on her life. In order to inherit her rightful crown, Merry needed to conceive an heir, a notoriously difficult task for the slow-reproducing Fey. In the 2009 novel Divine Misdemeanors, Merry had finally achieved that goal - and fans have been kept waiting all this time to find out what happens!

    Story

    I read a lot of negative reviews on this book, however, because I am a fan of Laurell Hamilton's writing, I pushed ahead and read it. Let me say this to all of those negative folks ... this book is what we call a "transition" novel in a "series" setting. We are introduced to the babies, in detail, and we are called to see the world and the people they will rule and live with in their life to come. All these details were necessary to go forward into the next book in this "Series".

    If you are looking for stand alone novels, this is not the place. I am a lover of the "series", therefore, I love Laurell Hamilton and her series. I also love Karen Moning and her series. So, it was easy for me to see this last book for what it was and it really set us up for some very exciting books in the future. Can't Wait. Anyone who loves this series, will love Book 9, A Shiver of Light.

    By the way, the narrator was fine. Buy it, you will love it.

    Story

    I thought with just one narrator, this book would be a bit weaker than the others, but I was wrong. This author's ability to build the mystery one brick at a time, until you really just want to read the last page first, holds steady in all of her novels and this one is no different. Very romantic, but still most strongly a mystery. Before you start make sure you have plenty of time because you will not want to be interrupted in the middle. I recommend this to any of KMM's fans. If you are not a fan, read this one and you will become one.

Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the few humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

    These Narrators keep you locked in until the end and you never want it to end! Of course, the story line draws you relentlessly. My family just groans when they see another Karen Marie Moning book in my Kindle. They know "take out" is coming and I guess they can do their own errands until I finish this book. Can't put it down. You will love it, just be sure you clear your calendar before you begin or someone will be real disappointed.

    Story

    My family thought I had just disappeared for a week inside the world of Robert McCammon. Couldn't put it down. Make sure you are on vacation before starting this one because if not work somewhere will be left undone. This story sends you twisting and turning every moment, captured completely by the desire to see the end of it, but dreading to see it end because it has so captured your imagination. Read it at your own peril. I am enraptured now and must read the series.

    The narrator played an enormous part in my delight over this book. He brought each character alive with his creative genius and use of dialects, etc. Between the narrator and the genius of the author in creating word pictures of the characters, i thought I was listening to a movie.

    Story

    Well, I just finished it and it was worth being patient. The beginning was a bit confusing and then slow moving, but I really like all of the details, much like a John Grisham novel. The characters were well developed and in the middle it seemed to pick up speed and kind of skipped over details you might like to hear, only to be clearly expounded on at the end. So, be patient, great read!

    Detroit artist Meagan Kelly has had a strong sixth sense all her life, but that doesn’t mean the gorgeous stranger’s crazy story—that she’s a half-elf, half human heiress—is true. But Meagan can’t deny the evidence of her own eyes—he’s Fae. A tall, blond, handsome, pointy-eared elf—and a man she just can’t get enough of.

    What a cast of narrators ... it brings broadway to you ... entertainment in your pocket.

    I read this many years ago and was so pleasantly surprised to find it still so intriguing and captivating. It's so nice to listen to a classic, without the violence, sexual perversion and most especially filthy language. You can listen to it anywhere and not feel like "ops ... should have turned it off before this scene came up". Thanks Audible for including so many great classics.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Story

    Was it the story or the story tellers that drew you in and wouldn't let you go until the last word was spoken and/or written? It doesn't really matter because the end result was the same, you couldn't stop listening. Each book was more compelling than the previous one. Buy all five and go on vacation ... sit by the ocean and just let the story play out. But be sure you have all five because when the book ends you will need to have the next one right there to continue the story. You might find yourself in a "no wi-fi" zone and have to suffer until you can get the next book, if you don't have all five just waiting to be experienced.
