    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    The book was good, however a little confusing for me when it went from one time to another, however once I got the story line I was glad to see how it started. Oliver Wyman was great.

    Overall I loved it.

    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    Shelly Manus says: "A very satisfying *almost* conclusion to the story"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I think Sherrilyn Kenyon is a great writer and I intend to read all of her books myself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    I love Acheron so I guess that it would be when Acheron rocked the baby while the parents slept.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Same as above


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

    All of these books make me laugh, cry, and shout out with anger.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    It tells us that God takes care of those who leave us.


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

    The characters become more alive.


    If you could take any character from The Shack out to dinner, who would it be and why?
