    As Clayton grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics - including showing his brutal archnemesis who the real Alpha is.

    Amazon Customer says: "Excellent backstory, but not a prequel"
    "Great Background for the series!"
    Overall

    Loved the narrator on this book. His voices really lend to the story. I actually wondered if there was more than one narrator. The story really built the background for the other stories and gave you an interesting look at Clayton and Jeremy.

    Just out of the service, Dave Henderson is home and ready to enjoy the sexual freedom he didn’t have in the Marine Corps. When he meets Jack Stonner at a party thrown by a neighbor, Dave is immediately attracted to him and launches a seduction, one that starts with sex but soon grows into love.

    A. Mattison says: "horrible narrator"
    "Good story, bad sound"
    Overall

    Both of the books I have gotten by John Simpson have good stories but it sounds like they are recorded in an echo chamber. I wish they would be recorded under better circumstances!

    When the managing director of Wainwright Enterprises dies everyone is amazed to find he was far richer than they supposed, and that he's left his estate to his nephew Alex and his wife Sally. She uncovers accounting irregularities within the company, but resists involving the police - until the firm's accountant is murdered. But DCI Andrew Fenwick's investigation reveals a web of corruption reaching the highest levels of the local community that puts his own child's life in peril.

    Douglas says: "Great police drama"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    It took me about a chapter to start really understanding the character dynamics and I was hooked! This book rocks and I am only disappointed that I can't listen to the others.

When newcomer Chris makes a mental connection, Vance is intrigued and soon wants more than just conversation. Chris and Vance seek comfort with each other, and with Simon - the only staff member who's shown them a hint of compassion.

    In New York, there's a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, but Cal Leandros is only half-human. His father's dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares - and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal.

    Overall

    I was introduced to the series by my younger sister who was right when she said I would love it. I was thrilled to see it on audio and although it was bittersweet as my sister has since lost her battle with breast cancer, I decided I would listen to it in her honor! I am so glad I did. Patrick Lawlor did a fabulous job with the embattled brothers. I can only hope that we see more! Not only do you get the love of two brothers but a battle between the good and bad, made more difficult when one of the brothers teeters on both sides! You won't regret listening!

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    I really debated this one! I am so glad I decided yes. First, I understood going in that it would be one of three so knew I would be left hanging. The length was well worth it. You get to love, hate, and understand the characters in the novel. You realize that, like real life, you never know for sure who will live and die and you come to understand that it makes this story as compelling as it is. It was so incredibly worth it. Can't wait for more.

    Deep in the isolated Northwest Territories, four friends are on the trip of a lifetime. Dropped by helicopter into the remote Canadian wilderness, Hutch, Terry, Phil, and David are looking to escape the events of a tumultuous year - a bitter divorce, bankruptcy, depression, and job loss - for two weeks of hunting, fishing, and camping. They quickly discover that another group has targeted the region and the hamlet of Fiddler Falls for a more menacing purpose: to field-test the ultimate weapon.

    Brenda says: "A pageturner every page....."
    "Really enjoyed this book."

    I really liked this book. It was worth the credit. It was a little out there for the premise but it made for a great story that kept me listening to the end. I actually wished that I could learn more about the outcome when I was done. Made me want more.

    Gary Keller is enjoying a cruise with new friends when he meets Scott Haworth, and unexpected attraction flares between them. But Scott has a past he's trying to leave behind; nine months earlier he was released from prison after almost a decade. The Innocence Project and DNA evidence exonerated him of the crime, but the victim’s brother still holds him responsible.

    Miss ReadsALot says: "DO NOT BUY THIS COPY!"
    "great book bad narration"
    Overall

    I have listened to all of Andrew Grey's books and really love them but this time the narrator struggled often and nothing was fixed. He repeated himself often and even coughed and cleared his nose. It was irritating. It was like the narrator didn't care how bad he did. This is really a shame because the story is better than that.

    Stefan Joss just can't win. Not only does he have to go to Texas in the middle of summer to be the man of honor in his best friend Charlotte's wedding, but he's expected to negotiate a million-dollar business deal at the same time. Worst of all, he’s thrown for a loop when he arrives to see the one man Charlotte promised wouldn’t be there: her brother, Rand Holloway.

    I loved this story. Even with the "muppet" voice for some of the side characters, this book was funny and tender. I loved both the main characters. I have another audio by Mary Calmes and cant wait to hear more from her.

    In the aftermath of the apocalypse, America has been reborn as the Tri-States. Now, a new breed of anarchists and malcontents have banded together to destroy everything Ben Raines and his new army have risked their lives - and the future of a new America - to build. As devastating civil war rages across the land, it's up to Raines to put America back into business, before the red dawn of Armageddon.

    Ric says: "Not for the Thin Shinned"
    "I wish I could rate this less!"
    Overall

    Of all the books I have purchased, this is the absolute worst. I am a "bleeding heart liberal" but I have no trouble reading a book with a right wing view. This book was so prejudiced with a survivalist point of view that I couldn't get past the politics to find the story. If you aren't a survivalist, you probably won't find much to enjoy with this book. The author seems to hate left wing, right wing, everyone but the wonderful survivalist who live in an ideal world that suits gun-carrying moral survivalists who all believe that the rest of the world is wrong. Don't bother!

    "Don't ignore because of reviews"
    Overall

    I put off buying this book because of the reviews saying the narration was terrible. I disagree. I didn't find it distracting at all. Some of the voices weren't great but I thought the author did a good job with it. If you like this genre, get this book because it is worth it.
