    The wizard Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, he transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. It's Nessy's duty to tend this castle. Its a lot of work, but she manages, taking pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel.

    Story

    It seems very cute, likable characters, seems like a good story, but it has more of a older juvenile/young adult feel to it than I was looking for. I plan on handing it off to my daughter. I bet she will like it more than I did.

    Dani "Mega" O’Malley plays by her own set of rules - and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. 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.

    Story

    The performance was very well done, however the story was... Who is this written for? The main character is a 14 yr old girl, surrounded by "death by sex fae" How is this appropriate? I didn't realize the main character was 14 when I purchased it, but kept listening thinking my daughter might like it, I will not give it to her. If you want to write Fairy Porn, write Fairy Porn, I have no bones with Meredith Gentry, but 14? Are you kidding me?

    Six months ago, the world ended. The Baugh Contagion swept across the planet. Its victims were left twitching, adrenalized cannibals that quickly became know as Junkies. Civilization crumbled as people created isolated safe havens to hide from the infected... and the possibly infected. Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city.

    Story

    Don't get me wrong the story is good, and I love Peter Clines, but the problem is that it is one short story ( like the beginning chapter or so of a novel) told in shorter stories in four points of view. I want to hear more of the story. Also, I have bought everything he has on Audible, and 2 of these shorter stories, the better ones actually, are included at the end of other works. So I think I would have been happier buying this if it was like, $5 or $6 as opposed to $11. Just sayin.

    The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

    "I really wanted to like it"
    Overall

    I really really wanted to like it. I love zombie stories, but I fell into the classic "judging a book by it's cover" thing here. Great title, great cover, it MAY even be a great story, but the narrator is so boring I just can't get into it at all, which I think is terrible because zombies should never be boring. I should be afraid to go to sleep during a zombie story, not dozing off after 20 mins or so.

    "Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. Assignment: Joanna Barrett hires me to track down her teenage daughter, who decided to forgo the circus and run away to the Nightside."

    I loved this, it is not your typical any kind of story, it is different and very entertaining. I'm definitely going after the whole series!

    MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.

    "Story vs Narrator"
    Overall

    I could not tell you if the story or the narrator was the problem, but I just could not listen to this. I'm going to try again, maybe in actual paperback, because it seems like a popular series so people must like it. Maybe I will find it is the narrator that could not keep my interest that way? Whatever the case, it was disappointing to not be able to get through an hour of it :/

    The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

    I loved this!!! The narrator was great, the details were awesome, this audiobook sucked me in completely. I was actually scared by the end of it, and avoided the second one until I went through some lighter stuff first. It has been a while since something like that has happened!

    When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.

    I'm going to agree with Josaphine's review. The narrator was just not capable of keeping me interested in the story. Though she got through an hour of it, I lasted only about 20 mins. Purchase this one at your own risk my friends.

    From the Battery to the Bronx, Manhattan is crawling with Vampyres. Joe Pitt is one of them, and he's not happy about it. Yeah, he gets to be tough as nails and hard to kill. But spending his nights trying to score a pint of blood to feed the Vyrus that's eating at him isn't his idea of a good time.

    Flavius says: "A Pleasant Surprise"
    "A MUST Listen"
    Overall

    Great book, fantastic narrator! After listening to this book, I could not imagine reading the rest of the series myself. Scott Brick just gave Joe the perfect voice. I recommend the entire body of work. It's amazing, something I can and will listen to again.

    When her parents vanish, Cerise's clan's long-time rivals are suspects number one. But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge - and Cerise's life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation's spymaster. When William's and Cerise cross paths, sparks fly - but they'll have to work together if they want to succeed…and survive.

    "Need new characters"
    Overall

    While I LOVE the narrator, the book needs new characters. The names have been changed, and the location is different, but the main characters are the same as in her other books. Uber powerful, I can take care of myself, nasty beyond belief woman meets a man who is equally if differently as powerful who is completely smitten and patiently waits for her to realize she loves him. I was disappointed.
