    The year is 1859 and Hero Hollis, beautiful and headstrong niece of the American consul, arrives in Zanzibar. It is an earthly paradise; it is also the last outpost of the Slave Trade. A passionate opponent of slavery, Hero is swept into a turmoil of royal intrigue, abduction, piracy, smuggling, and a virulent cholera epidemic. There in Zanzibar, the most cruelly beautiful island of the Southern Seas, she must choose her love and unravel her destiny.

    Well written and gripping, the female character can get on your nerves at times but you also have to realize we are speaking about the 1800's. An interesting history of another culture and time. I found it very absorbing, With a nice twist.

    Each book in this series just got better and better. Always action packed and many twists and turns. Richard Kadrey knows how to spin a story and keep his reader entertained from the very start. MacLeod Andrews is the perfect narrator for this series. His voices and attitude were perfect. There were moments in this series that were really funny, if it weren't so brutal. This is a true trilogy If you like urban fantasy this is for you. True cutting edge. I hope Richard Kadrey will be writing more novels.

    This is the incredible story of the world's greatest conqueror, a man who single handedly changed the course of history...and who was worshipped as a god. There have been many attempts in the 2,300 years since Alexander's death to tell the epic story of this enigmatic soldier. His deeds read like the stuff of legends. Of all the chroniclers of Alexander, and there have been many famous ones, including Plutarch and Ptolemy, none have given us a clearer and truer account than the one by Arrian.

    I enjoy anything about Alexander, and especially excellent books. This one falls into that category. The narrator Charlton Griffin did and excellent job with the interpretation. I also suggest Alexander by Harold Lamb, it is also narrated by Charlton Griffin. If you are into historical fiction I would also recommend The Virtues of War by Steven Pressfield, narrated by John Lee. I have all three in my library and have listened to them more than once. You will not be wasting your points on any of these books. However this one is a MUST.

    Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.) ascended to the throne of Macedon at the age of 20. He fought his greatest battles, including the conquest of the mighty Persian Empire, before he was 25, and died at the age of 33, still undefeated by any enemy. His reputation as a supreme warrior and leader of men is unsurpassed in the annals of history.

    This is a wonderful interpretation of the story of Alexander the Great. It is a historical novel, and it does take license, on many things. However John Lee does a wonderful narration and if you are truly an "Alexander' enthusiast, this book, along with "Alexander the Great" by Arrian, and "Alexander" by Harold Lamb these two books are narrated by Charlton Griffin, who like John Lee is a wonderful narrator. Your points will not be wasted on any of these books I promise.

    Fresh from his trip to Britain, Falco needs to re-establish his presence in Rome. A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of Silius Italicus and Paccius Africanus, two real-life lawyers at the top of their trade. These notorious ex-consuls play a dangerous game, where success brings rich pickings but a mistrial or a wrong verdict entails huge financial penalties.

    Let’s face it - the holidays can bring out the beast in anyone. They are particularly hard if you’re a lycanthrope. Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner have harvested the scariest, funniest, saddest werewolf tales, by an outstanding pack of authors, best heard by the light of a full moon and with a silver bullet close at hand.

    In Ghost of a Smile, the Ghost Finders answer a desperate call for help from one of the world’s biggest drug companies. A team of police enforcement agents has already disappeared, and the Ghost Finders have no idea how to proceed. But they’d better figure something out fast, because time is running out—and failure means an entire building full of innocent victims will cease to exist.

    Story

    If you are too, you won't be disappointed, there is some dry humor, and some really nasty scary situations, that the ghost hunters endure. I'm enjoying this series (this is book 2) can't wait for the next installment. I think the narrator does a fine job with the voice inflections, so I find it easy to follow who's talking. If you are a SRG fan I thing it's well worth a listen.

    Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. They had to leave immediately. So begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture, complete with its own folk history and mythos.

    B. Cable says: "Still one of the best!"
    "Don't know why I never read this before now."
    Overall

    First I have to say the narration by Ralph Cosham is just perfect. The interpretation and expressions in this story remind me a bit of "Animal Farm" but much more intense. I never would have thought I would be so moved by a so called "Young Persons Book". However being an adult I would imagine I see so much more, than a 12 or 13 year old would see. My feelings are that yes every day life is a struggle, regardless if you're a human being or a rabbit. Wonderful book beautifully read.

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    Carlie says: "LOVE THIS SERIES"

    this is fifth book in series and I really loved it, Tavia Gilbert does a great job with the narration. I have to say each book gets better and better. Some authors really know how to develop a story. Jeniene Frost is one of them.

    Overall

    The first book was pretty good for an urban fantasy. I liked the narrator as well. I always listen to the free listen before I purchase a title, especially if I don't know the narrator. I enjoyed this book more than the first, possibly because I already had a background of some of the characters and this had more twists and turns in the story line. Like I've said not a Loral Hamilton, nor Kim Harrison, but something enjoyable and different none the less.
