    Thirty-five years old, fresh off the bus from New York City, and nursing a shattered heart, Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, she goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she’s simply moved on - her cabin is cleaned out and her things gone. Anna herself wakes up, trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of how she got into this situation. As she slowly pieces together her memory, it soon becomes clear that someone has trapped her there....

    For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates…. Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task.

    Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could've ever imagined - because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

    Ira says: "I'm Looking For Volume 2 Already"
    "Good story Line...but no wrap up..cliff hanging."

    Would you try another book from Dima Zales and Anna Zaires and/or Emily Durante?

    Maybe if she could develop the book with some kind of ending...even books in series have some kind of ending...wrapping up some things in a story.


    What three words best describe Emily Durante’s performance?

    Not a strong reader...very much like an unemotional read !

    Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth who, in the middle of class, takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential.

    What made the experience of listening to Ruby Red the most enjoyable?

    Love the idea of time travel!


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

    I felt the reader was good.


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

    Liked the end, surprised me, but it shouldn't have!


    Any additional comments?

    The mystery is still there, but somethings were cleared up and I enjoyed the characters! Will probably listen to the other two books in the series.

  • Black Magic Sanction: Rachel Morgan, Book 8

    Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter—and lived to tell the tale. But she’s never faced off against her own kind, until now. Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment-at worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery.

    What did you love best about Black Magic Sanction?

    Marguerite Gavin is a great reader, enjoyed listening to her.


    What other book might you compare Black Magic Sanction to and why?

    most of the vampire good "chick" books. They are all about the same type of thing, but interesting to listen too while doing cooking, cleaning, and mindless things!


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

    no

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.
