    He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

    Overall

    I wanted to like this book, as I have loved Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series (and have reread them over and over) But, this was such a ridiclous book. Over the top corny, predicable cheap thrill romance. I was hugely diapponited.

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    I hope those considering this book have already read/listened to Twilight (book 1) and New Moon (book 2). Even at 42 years of age I am a huge fan. Breaking Dawn (book 4) is due to be released in 2 days (actually 1.25 days) and I am hoping that it is available on Audible immeditely (Like most of you, I prefer to listen instead of read (I drive all day)). What a truly captivating story.
    ps: I also love the young lady reading. It is consistent throughout the three books (soon to be four). and she really brings more dimension to Bella.

    For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning.

    "Heartwrenching yet fantastic"
    Overall

    Wow! I could really feel Bella's pain. This was a very emotional sequel to Twilight. (I must say that I am not on team Jacob though... I love Edward!) I have finished all three of the four books (Book one is Twilight and book three is Eclipse... listen to them in order) and am counting down the hours until Breaking Dawn! At 42, I found that this series isn't just for teens/young adults.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I am 42 and still found the story very enjoyable. I didn't want to stop listening. Sure, I would have prefered that things got a little more... adult. However, I enjoyed it so much that I am moving on to the second book in the saga and happily anticipting Bella's story to continue to unfold. Oh! I am not sure why one reviewer found the narrators voice unpleasant. I happened to LOVE the narrators voice.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    "Such a great tale"
    Overall

    Awesome book. I am not usually one for romance novels, but there is the perfect mix of romance, history and science fiction (time travel) to keep me hooked. I have read the series. Loved all 6. But this one is the best!

    The inspiration for the hit television series Medium, Allison DuBois now brings listeners into her psychic experiences in We Are Their Heaven. Recalling her communication with spirits who have touched her over the years, she reveals that the dead are trying to reach their loved ones all the time, not because they're bound to us, but because we are their happiness, we are their heaven.

    Geff says: "The real thing"
    "Very comforting"
    Overall

    A very enjoyable book that provides great comfort to those who believe or simply have an open mind.
