    Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life....

    I liked how the book did a recap without being overwhelming. The author did a good job throughout. Kalen's involvement was minimal and I was surprised by that. I thought he would have had a bigger role but it was not disappointing. And yes I would recommend this book along with the other books in the series.

    As a love slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and, most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and into the world. She taught me to love again. But I was not born to love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone.

    In the Dark Hunter series Sherrilyn Kenyon stories seemed to me to follow a generic pattern when it came to the main characters. Their backgrounds and faults seemed to mirror each other. I was presently surprised with the flow of the story because although the generic pattern was still present I was really impressed with the twists added to the story that made it more interesting and exciting! I was ready for something different because I love the series but I was getting a little disappointed about the predictability of

    Skye Morrison has a lot in common with today's college graduates: she's neck deep in student loan debt and desperate for a better-paying job. For four years the nightlife of Austin, Texas (home of Skye's alma mater), has satiated her thirst for good music, a revamp in fashion, and men - especially local musician Jameson Doyle, but her spot as a waitress at Drop Kick Dan's bar isn't going to cut the slack. A personal life troubled by a hounding ex only makes matters worse.

    First off the narrator was awful! I kept listening waiting for the plot to reveal itself and it never came! I've listened to a lot of books and I tell you this is the worst book I've ever read! It lacked background and explanation of actions. The love triangle it created was strange to say the least. It made the character seem like a strumpet! And worst of all it ended like a cliffhanger! Every series book I've read has had a tidy ending with a smooth transition to the following book or plot. This book did not!

    Traumatized by her past and struggling to move on from it, Sera has spent the past three years of college hiding herself from the world and content to stay that way. A chance encounter with Liam shatters her sheltered world, leaving her stunned and shaken by the strange feelings and emotions he arouses in her, feelings she never thought she would experience and that frighten her in their intensity.

    The book was good and Tavia Gilbert is always good. But I didn't like the patchy job with the explanation and description of the super natural powers. And think there wasn't a strong background for how the characters came to be. Overall the story was good. I would definitely recommend this book to someone and I would let the reader decide what to think about it. I especially LOVED the ending!!!!

    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's hard to say. I would maybe recommend as a hardcover read but not in audio format. If I recommended this book I would encourage a friend to start at the beginning of the series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Christine Feehan before, how does this one compare?

    It does not compare to any of the previous Dark Series books. The storyline was shaky and the wording she used didn't seem like her usual style of writing. Phil Gigante was an excellent narrator and Robert Sarkus's narration seems suitable for children's books but not this genre.


    What didn’t you like about Robert Sarkus’s performance?

    I didn't like his pronunciation of some of the wording. His voice wasn't smoky or sensual. I know very little about the Romanian dialect but I know for certain his mispronounced some of the terminology.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it was not.

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I know that some books may start off slow, but I listened to this book for about 2 or 3 hours and I couldn't endure it much longer.


    What was most disappointing about Seth Grahame-Smith’s story?

    The story drags and it doesn't peak curiousity.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Addition to the slow start of the story, the narrator added to the displeasure. He just didn't fit. A narrator with a deeper voice like Phil Gigante may have been a better fit.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I just can't answer that question due to brevity in which I listened.

Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is free to roam across time and continents in pursuit of his insatiable desires. That is, until a curse strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible, a cruel fate for so irresistible a man.

    Where does The Immortal Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a great book. I rate it one of my top 10 audiobooks!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adam was my favorite character because he remained true to his character while at the same time becoming more.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    The ease in which he can switch dialects.


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

    The very end in the prolouge when Adam finds out he has a soul.
