She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend.

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

    I enjoyed the read and recommend it to anyone who enjoys alternate reality/urban fantasy. Using a different viewpoint character than stories to date was refreshing.


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    The current style is strong female lead characters and Gunmetal Magic fits this mold.


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

    Ms Raudman has good voice distinction between the characters in the book. If you listen to other titles in the series her male characters are similar sounding. The book was well read.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire series makes great light reading and is a good traveling companion.

  • SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper

    Story
    (1185)

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book is a first-person, dry, narrative of a series of training and mission events. It could be the "and this is the Seals" manual issued to prospective team members to discourage them from joining. The book is informative but lacks a sense of adventure. There is no suspense or building tension.


    What was most disappointing about Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin ’s story?

    This potentially fascinating series of stories are written like mission briefs. We rarely get any building suspense or sense of adventure.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    This is the story of the narrator's life and there are no other characters of consequence.


    Any additional comments?

    We normally use audio books as traveling entertainment. We lasted 6 hours waiting for him to get out of training and do something interesting. Never happened.
