    Story

    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.

    Flavius says: "Hokey But Fun"
    "Painful to get through"
    Overall

    I'll start off by saying Ron Perlman is an enjoyable and greatly versatile actor who can bring about wit like none can. As a narrator however, it took sheer willpower to get through the book. The monotone, lack of audible inflections, and annoying music snippets did not create an enjoyable listen.
    The story itself had potential but, as fellow listeners noted, it quickly lost any depth and intrigue; becoming a run of the mill story with predictable directions.

    Story

    Saber Wynter is running from her past when she meets Jess Calhoun, an ex-Navy SEAL who is physically and emotionally compromised by his own mysterious and violent history as a GhostWalker. What Jess senses in Saber is a kindred spirit, a lost soul desperate for sanctuary. He offers her a home, a job, and a haven where she can safely reveal the secrets that shadow her. But danger follows her, too. Now, the riddles of both their pasts are about to collide.

    Ashley says: "An enjoyable listen"
    "Perhaps..."
    Overall

    I should have started with Book 1 of the GW series but for the infatuation/doubt between Jesse and Saber to be described for 6 hours+ is too much. This could easily pass a a romance novel instead of a thriller; the actual story seems secondary. The narrator however, does a superb job.

  • The Host: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (23 hrs and 5 mins)

    Story
    (2693)

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Sci-fi turned on its head"
    Overall

    Meyer takes the story of an alien invasion and presents it from the alien's POV and then some. You'll probably be turned off by the stiff narration in the beginning but give it a chance; there's a reason for it. My only annoyance is the character of the "soul". Meyer's premise is that a "soul" cannot be unkind, hence a maddeningly meek character but the story undermines this premise by the alien's basic plan.
