    "The Narrator Makes the Story Come Alive"
    Overall

    This is the fourth book I've read of C.E. Murphy's and this series looks to be as good as her Negotiator series. The narrator, Christine Carroll is absolutely fabulous, making the characters come to life! I look forward to listening to more books narrated by her!

    War has erupted among the five Old Races, and Margrit is responsible for the death that caused it. Now New York City's most unusual lawyer finds herself facing her toughest negotiation yet. And with her gargoyle lover, Alban, taken prisoner, Margrit's only allies have demands of their own.

    Overall

    Wow! What a wonderful series! And Eve Bianco was a great narrator! Really made the excellent writing of C.E. Murphy come alive. Her accents stayed consistent for each character and added so much to the readings! Can't wait to read her other series but unfortunately Ms. Bianco doesn't narrate this one. Hope the other narrator is as good! Thank you for making my listening pleasure a great experience!

    New York City's only legal counsel to the fabled Old Races, Margrit Knight is levelheaded in all matters extraordinary. But when she's summoned to negotiate a peace treaty among rival factions, her own mortal world threatens to fall apart. Margrit's been in hot water before, but reentering the underworld brings a new set of problems.

    Daniel S. Palter says: "Strong middle book for the trilogy."
    "Delightful 2nd in Negotiator Trilogy"
    Overall

    Contrary to what others have written, I find the second book in this trilogy just as enjoyable as the first. And the narrator is a delight to listen to. I have no problem distinguishing the players because she effectively stays consistent in her dialects. I look forward to the third book. The author is an excellent writer and it will be like saying goodbye to good friends when I finish the trilogy. Thank you for making my travel hours so enjoyable.

    Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings, not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real, but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.

    Deborah says: "Entertaining if formulaic"
    "Pleased and delighted with narrator and author"
    Overall

    I read some of the reviews after I read this book and contrary to some reviewers, I found the narrator delightful. All of her accents were different and I had NO problem differentiating her characters. She made the book come alive. The author is new to me and I found her writing style extemely enjoyable and down-to-earth. I look forward to listening to more in this series. I highly recommend her work and the narrator.

    We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.

    Pam says: "Loved this book!"
    "Delightful and entertaining!"
    Overall

    This is my first book written by this author and I enjoyed it immensely. Can't wait for Book 2!

Now, in Enchantment, Card works his magic as never before, transforming the timeless story of Sleeping Beauty into an original fantasy brimming with romance and adventure.
