    Beth Raymer arrived in Las Vegas in 2001, hoping to land a job as a cocktail waitress at one of the big casinos. In the meantime, she lived in a $17-a-night motel with her dog, Otis, and waited tables at a low-rent Thai restaurant. One day, one of her regular customers told her about a job she thought Beth would be perfect for and sent her to see Dink, of Dink Inc. Dink was a professional sports gambler looking for a right-hand man. She got the job.

    I normally stick to the few of my favorite authors but for once I decided to take a chance after hearing the little sound byte preview. I was blown away at the in-depth descriptiveness in the writing that Beth Raymer provides. I was immediately taken along with her as she basically, ???wings??? it in the high stress area of sports betting. I cannot wait for her to write another book. Thank you Beth!

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest - where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price.... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before - both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes.

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

    Story
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, except when I was driving, of course. the author has mastered the ability to build a story in between the scenes. This enables the reader to fully comprehend the story the putting the reader "there" in the scene.


    Did Gigi Bermingham do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Admittedly it took a few chapters to get use to the different narrator. Note to all narrators who have the unenviable task of narrating a book that another has been successful at. Listen to the previous book and know how to pronounce the names. She kept mispronouncing Piscary's name and I found myself yelling at her the correct pronunciation.Of course that's when i realized that besides that she did a good job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did find myself laughing quite a bit. Also saying "No,don't do it!" a lot.

    For once no one wants to kill Samantha Martin. She's free to do all the things a mischievous imp loves to do- like remove all the county speed limit signs, and wrap City Hall in crime scene tape. Her only worry beyond organizing the delivery of her boyfriend's birthday present, is writing those pesky four nine five reports for the Ruling Council of Angels. But imps can never stay out of trouble for long. Demon corpses have been found drained of all energy, their spirit selves ripped clean from their bodies.

    Where does Blood Wager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there in the top Eight authors, now keep in mind that I own close to 1000 books on tape not just on Audible but the CD's and actual tape too. Yes tape, that's how long I have been a fan of B-O-T.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Wager?

    When she tell the head of the werewolf clan that he has to tell his grand children about her


    Any additional comments?

    I find it hard to imagine that there are only two out of the seven books made into audible books. A series this good should be made into audible books in it's entirety

There's a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name "Burn" sums up the potent effect it has on its users.

    Where does Poison Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That is a hard question, simply due to the amount of a-books I have (over 380). I can say that it is up in the upper 20%


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gin (like the liquor) does not disappoint. The story with its subplots moves right along. I like how the author is able to keep her story lines fresh using the same characters. This is very smart writing and I am already waiting for the next release.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    She has a southern drawl down part, living in New England for the first part of my life then spending the last 30 years on the west coast of FL I've heard my share of accents. She can bring a character to life with the little nuances.

    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    Even though Shane has to be my least fav. character she does him well


    Any additional comments?

    Well it's an over all good series, but if I have to say "Don't do that!" one more time I'm ripping my ears off.
    Scene 1"Hey look! A dark scary room, let's not go in there!" Scene 2 Oh let's go in that room because we totally forgot what we said 3 minutes ago. Again!

    Things that make me say AAAggghhh for 100 Alex.

    What did you love best about Murder of Crows?

    This is a wonderfully written book. It moves right along without missing or skipping over any part of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, I wish the next part was out already.


    What does Alexandra Harris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Alexandra is spot on with this story. Understandably she has some difficulty with baritones but that is part of brilliantly spoken story.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    I gave this book a chance and did not write a review until I heard to whole thing. I now have to go buy the book so I can read it the way James Marsters would have. It would have to be one of the more important stories that this would have to happen to. I really enjoyed the writing but I am having a HARD time getting through the reader. It was a BAD choice. The man is a competent actor but he obviously does not know the story and how ???Dresden??? acts. If the powers to be, chose to use him again instead of James Marsters, I WILL no longer follow the story. Perhaps go so far as to no longer use Audible.com although I will be checking out the new series that James Marsters is doing, simply because he can act out a story with his voice and not minimally read it.
    It would have been better (scratching my head) to have waited for James Marsters to be available and put out first-class products then to do this. This is so frustrating to wait for this book, with such a cliffhanger, and to be given such great work in such an unfortunate way. Please, Please, Please is there someone out there with some money that can pay James Marsters to read this story and have them put it out so we can have ???Harry??? back! I am simply appalled.
