    "I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds. Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked."

    Overall

    There is really no middle ground on the revues of this book. I found the heroine to act a lot more like a teen aged brat than a woman in her early twenties. I read the reviews of the next books in the series and although the reviews do get better I suspect that is because quite a few people do not choose to read any more of the books.

    This book is actually a mediocre romance with a sprinkling of the paranormal. The romance was tepid and the paranormal aspect was pathetic.

    Story

    This book has a very unique plot and I will try the next book in the series, even though I found the reader to be a bit monotinous and jerky in her reading style. Even though this book was the first in a new series, I felt a bit like I was reading a book in the middle of a series and had missed out on some of the back story.

    Laurens, a New York Times best-selling author, thrills millions of fans with each book in her sensuous Bar Cynster series.

    Both beautiful and headstrong, Amelia Cynster has decided to marry the man of her dreams. Lucien Ashford is handsome and sexy - but Amelia is tired of waiting for him to make the first move. So slowly, carefully, she begins to lay her trap.

    N. Brooks says: "It was wicked!!"
    "not much of a plot"
    Overall

    On the positive side, the author has a wonderful vocabulary and the reader is capable. The book is way too long for the limited and predictable plot. I am glad I got it on sale and didnt waste a credit on it. I fell asleep several times and had trouble rewinding and finding my place since the same scenes seemed to keep repeating and the plot moves with all the speed of a soap opera.

    A ragtag band of humans from the Terravegan colonies fights the Rojok invaders and their ship is destroyed. Rescued by the Centaurian commander of the terror-inspiring Holconcom, the humans must learn to live with their hostile alien counterparts when they are captured by the Rojoks and thrown into the galaxy's most horrible prison camp. The female exobiologist has to save the life of the alien commander in order to save her captain, her comrades, and herself. This is a rocket ride full of action, humor, and sacrifice.

    Bruce says: "Pleasantly Surprised"
    "sci fi or romance"
    Overall

    This does resemble an old Star trek, but I cant make it past the first few chapters when Scotty got cycled out through the air lock. This is one of those futuristic romances written in the eighties by an author who should have stuck to plots in the twentieth century.

    I fell asleep several times while listening to this book, but it did not really matter since so little was happening with the plot. Fortunately, I got it off of a sale list and did not waste a credit on it.

    Ophelia Reid is an incomparable beauty with a reputation for starting rumors and spreading them. Having purposely wrecked her engagement to Duncan MacTavish, a future marquis, which her social-climbing father arranged, Ophelia wants to return to London's marriage mart and make her own choice of a wealthy husband. But on her journey home, something unexpected happens.

    Celia says: "The Devil Who Tamed Her"
    "glad it was on the sale table"
    Overall

    I used to enjoy this author so perhaps my taste has changed over the years. The reader made the mediocre story even worse by growling the male characters.

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    Jaclyn A Rupert says: "Narrrator: 1 star, Story 5 stars!"
    "great book, wrong reader"
    Overall

    It is very difficult to critique a great book that is difficult to listen to due to the wrong reader. Buy the book if you have any choice in this matter. Jenks sounds like a three year old girl and some of the other charactors are even worse.

    It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But that is the lot of young Khorii - daughter of the legendary Acorna and her lifemate Aari - who must now follow her own destiny through a fantastic universe of wonders and perils.

    Amazon Customer says: "High-pitched narrator, unique coming-of-age story"
    "is this a kids book"
    Overall

    I purchased this book thinking it was for an adult, but it seems to be written more for the kids market. I have enjoyed Ms Mccaffeys work for many years, but this is the last book of hers that I will purchase.

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Jake Williams says: "Altered Carbon"
    "very confusing"
    Overall

    After about two hours of listening, I found the plot to be very confusing. Unfortunately, I did not find either the characters or what plot I did understand to be interesting enough to continue listening to the book. The sexualcontent and violence seemed to interfere with the story line rather than enhance it. This book is getting filed in the once is enough file.
