    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. I love the audio versions so much that I haven't picked up a print version since book 3


    Which character ??? as performed by Susan Ericksen ??? was your favorite?

    I love all the characterizations done by Susan Ericksen. It is so amazing to me that she can perform conversations between two or more women and never miss changing characters.


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

    I did cry during this book. It is very emotional with the revelations and the growth experienced by Eve during the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    It's been a long time since I listened to a book that I couldn't put down. I found myself putting my ipod in my ears during EVERY spare moment because I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. Loved the "science". Loved the characters and the narrator made them come alive! I will definitely look at other works by this author and this narrator!!

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    I got this book because it got great reviews and I had just listened to the Grimnoir chronicles by the same author (which I LOVED). This book was very disappointing!!!! I kept wondering if I was reading the same book as those that had done 5 star reviews. The story was flat, repetitive and predictable. The descriptions of weapons, ammunition, blood and monster gore got boring after two or three times of the same thing. The monsters were unoriginal. The characters were one dimensional. The dialogue was banal. The narration was done way too slowly and was monotone throughout much of the book. I only finished it because I kept thinking that it was going to pick up eventually, but it never did. I found myself just wishing for the end and didn't really care at all what happened to the characters. I have absolutely no desire to listen to any of the other books in the series and can't imagine how so many installations have been written and have sold so well.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    I really enjoyed this book! Excellent fantasy/magic however the characters were well developed. The good guys had darkness within them and, at time, some questionable motives and actions while the bad guys had some light and goodness within them. The relationships between characters was rich and well described. The magic was creative and well thought out. The plot was clever and detailed. All that being true the narration is what made the whole thing come together and come to life. I can't imagine enjoying reading the printed book nearly as much as listening to Bronson Pinchot perform each character's narration and voice with such genius! I bought the first two books and listened to them. Later, when the third book came out I went back and listened to the first two again before starting number 3. I could listen to them all again and enjoy it just as much!!
