    Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

    Overall

    What a great time!

    A fast-paced, really interesting plot and a great narration. I listen on the way to work, and found myself circling the parking lot because I didn't want to stop listening!

    It's got everything--the beautiful, spunky heroine, the ex-badboy cop, a small town with evil lurking around every corner. . .who could ask for more?

    Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck..

    Story

    This was a total waste of time--not at ALL like the other Stephanie Plum books! The plot was really bad and didn't really resolve at the end. It took me a LONG time to get through this one, my attention kept wandering because the story was so dull. I was expecting the normal fun, funny action packed life of Stephanie Plum, but instead got a mishmosh of bad attempted humor and a story that didn't make sense.

    Save your credits--this is NOT worth the listen. Lorelei King was great, she's wonderful at characterization, but even she couldn't save this one.

    Against a teeming canvas of Borgia politics, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci come together to unmask an enigmatic serial killer, as we learn the secret history behind one of the most controversial works in the western canon, The Prince. Traveling across an Italy torn apart by war, they will enter a labyrinth of ancient superstition and erotic obsession to discover at its center a new face of evil - and a truth that will shake the foundations of western civilization.

    Molly Gordon says: "Female narrator is impossible to listen to."

    Story

    I was really looking forward to this book--and was really disappointed! The narrator sounds like she's a non-English speaker reading phonectically. No emotion, no excitement. Sounds like she's reading a grocery list.

    I still wanted to try to get through the story, but just couldn't get through the lackluster performance of that female narrator.

    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

    Story

    This combines my love of a good vampire villain with my love of warrior angels. . .in such an interesting way. It's a really great story, packed with action, makes it really hard to stop listening because you don't want to miss a good part!

    I could have done without all the heavy duty "hot" stuff, Hot stuff is okay if it's part of the story, but bending the plot so that there can be hot stuff gets tiresome. I want to know what happens next, not who happens naked.

    The link between angels and vampires was really, really interesting, and it's what makes this book stand out from other stories.

    The narrator is excellent. She creates characters by voice alone--you don't need "Mr X Said" to understand which character is speaking. Her inflections and intonations are just fabulous. I'll be looking for other books narrated by her, she's that good.

    The ending. . . well. . . just okay. The story built up and concluded, then there's an epilogue-like addition. . .could have done without it!

    But, it was a really fun story, I will be listening to the next book in the series!

    Story

    I love a mystery. . .but in this story, it's mystery after mystery after mystery. Characters are continually being shocked by something the reader isn't told of. By the time you're halfway through the book, you really have NO idea what's going on and are starting not to care. Normally I listen as often as I can, finishing a 12 hour book in about week. This one? Not so much.

    By the time the mystery is revealed, you've forgotten what was relevant and what wasn't.

    Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    "Really Good"
    Overall

    Great story!!

    I read the reviews before purchasing, and they were right on the money. A solid story with GREAT narration. I do wish it had ended a bit cleaner, but I still enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times best-selling author Larry McMurtry is one of America's best novelists. Several of his books are modern classics, including Lonesome Dove and Terms of Endearment, which was adapted into an Academy Award-winning motion picture. Now McMurtry delivers a funny yet sobering road trip novel reminiscent of Thelma and Louise and featuring two of the most original women to appear in fiction for quite some time.

    Markie Ross says: "Yikes"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was looking forward to this one. . .and what a disappointment! CJ Critt, a narrator I normally enjoy, is really off her game in this recording. Odd phrasing, extra long pauses--no wonder it comes in three parts--a good 2 hours of it is silence.

    And the story--in a word--boring.

    Save your credits--this audiobook wasn't worth the download.
