    Just after a man falls in the snow and hits his head on a stone curb, a ghost arrives to take his soul to the afterlife. But something strange occurs: the man doesn't die. Flabbergasted, the ghost appeals to his boss for further direction and is instructed to stay with the man until the strange "problem" is worked out.

    Brien says: "Interesting writing style, complex story"
    "intriguing plot, great read"
    Overall

    What a rare treat to read a story that does not follow a formulaic plot. This book was intriguing, with twists and turns on every page. I found it fascinating. It was both a love story and an interesting and plausible consideration of our inner selves. The narration was excellent and the story meaningful.

    Twenty-five-year-old Julie Jacobs is heartbroken over the death of her beloved aunt Rose. But the shock goes even deeper when she learns that the woman who has been like a mother to her has left her entire estate to Julie’s twin sister. The only thing Julie receives is a key—one carried by her mother on the day she herself died—to a safety-deposit box in Siena, Italy.

    Glory says: "Excellent! Merits 20 hours"
    "Well written, captivating"
    Overall

    This was a GREAT BOOK, from the first sentence to the last. I found myself captivated at the weaving of stories, past and present. Full of twists, turns and surpirses, the writing never failed to keep me intrigued. The narration was excellent. At the end, I was crying and laughing and full of that feeling that only comes from a truly satisfying book.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    AMC says: "Promising New Series"
    "Loved It!"
    Overall

    I have loved the Black Dagger series and passed over this novel time and again. Finally, when I thought I had run out of good books, I decided to give this one a listen. I loved it from the moment I started listening. Good narration, great story. I can't wait for more Fallen Angels to appear.

    Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power-amnesia. No one who meets him in person can remember him 5 minutes later. It makes it easy to have one-night stands, but hard to have a meaningful relationship, and without true love he can never regain his soul. When he finally meets Cassandra, the one woman who can remember him, she turns out to be the princess of the cursed race he's sworn to hunt - and is forbidden to him.

    Jeanie Jenkins says: "Give me more"
    "A disappointment"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to Dance with the Devil so much I thought this book would match my enjoyment. I was sorely disappointed. The characters lacked depth, the plot wavered. It seemed like every time there was a "tense" moment, a new character would be introduced to veer the plot in a new direction. Good narration but still...

    "They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?"

    Stacy says: "Dance With the Devil"
    "Loved This!"
    Overall

    I loved this audiobook! The characters were rich and complex, the narration was fantastic. I even started it over the minute I was done. A good read for those who like the hot-sexy fantasy genre.

    Boy, I read the whole Incarnations of Immortality series and loved it! What rich writing! I expected more of the same from this series but could not even get through Part 1. It just ho-hummed along. The narration was flat, the story was flat. Flat, flat, flat. Narration was like listening to the reading of an instructional manual.

    The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that 18-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life.

    Susan says: "Plain good!"
    "Fascinating!"
    Overall

    Fascinating story! Felt like I was immersed in the Amish culture. Characters were interesting, story was well thought out and unique, narration was good. Kept me enthralled throughout.

    With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

    Kestrel says: "As good as Poison Study, perhaps better"
    "lacks depth"
    Overall

    I loved the first book - Poison Study - but this one left me cold. Story lacks depth. Narrator reads like she is reading a technical manual. I never felt compelled, enthralled, on the edge of my seat...it was more like, "Oh, now Yelena is in this mess, now she is in this one." I hope the author re-groups for the next book.

    A good read for a summer day. I'm hooked on this series! The narration was excellent, the story quirky and unique. I want to read ALL of this author's fun series.
