    "There are lots of reasons to raise the dead - some private, some public. In this case, the feds have a witness who died before he could speak on the record. They want him raised so his testimony can be taken. So here I am, on a plane to Philadelphia, flying off to do my job."

    Martin says: "Anita Blake As Read by Marge Simpson"
    "Narrator Awful...."
    Overall

    The book is a nice short read...very descriptive but not at the same time..

    Dissappointed with the narrator. She has no inflection, sounds like she is a "story time reader" for kids. My favorite is Kimberly Alexis...but I prefer Cynthia Halloway to Rey Colette...glad she only did one of Laurrel's books!

Who can be trusted when sin and salvation collide? Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

    Would you listen to City of Lost Souls again? Why?

    Yes, so much ground is covered in this book. My mind still feels like I missed something.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think the narrator for this book isn't as good as the person that did the first novel. She struggles with voice differentiation on the main characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending just made me flatly frustrated.....each novel the author lets you think the main characters get to be together....ah, but yet again NO! and the last book doesn't even come out until Sept. 2014! Disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of all of the books in the series. I would say this one by far has more almost erotica in it. I would caution parents of younger teens on this one. Read it first before you let your teen venture into this book.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunger Games to be better than the print version?

    I preferred the audio edition as the narrator paints a good picture of the story and surroundings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peeta - he is so caring of everyone


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Katniss takes care of Peeta in the cave. - Also, when the Capital takes Peeta away for surgery....you can tell that Katniss is not faking her feelings for him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES, made me cry with the deaths of the children.


    Any additional comments?

    Hard to believe this is a young adult novel. (mind you that 11-12 year olds are reading this. If you consider this for your kid, read (listen) same time they do so you can discuss it. Very moving topics for you and your kids.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    What did you love best about City of Bones?

    Overall story I thought was well developed. The characters were wonderful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was shocking and upsetting!


    Any additional comments?

    The story really captured you. Thought that some concepts too mature for a Young Adult reader. Meaning that under 16 would not be a good fit, especially the books later in this series.

    What made the experience of listening to Guilty Pleasures the most enjoyable?

    What other book might you compare Guilty Pleasures to and why?

    The level of character and story detail remind me of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Series. The story lines are not similar but the detail and characters are wonderful!


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

    Anita and Jean Claude...wait that is two......she does a wonderful job with both!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't stop listening when I got of the treadmill had to sit on the couch and keep listening! Wonderful!

    What happens when you can't say no? What happens when desire trumps restraint, and a seemingly innocent glance triggers a red-hot, clothes-in-a-heap quickie? Short in length but long on arousal, the stories in this collection take pace anywhere, any time the mood strikes. In Frenzy, editor Alison Tyler offers an unabashedly lustful selection of "brief encounters" of the sexual kind.

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

    Maybe with a warning!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oh, my....60 stories...too many to list. There were a couple of stories that creeped me out so I fast forwarded through them.


    What about Lucy Malone’s performance did you like?

    Lucy does a great job with tone of the story and draws you into the stories!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I did it piece meal as they are separate stories it makes it easier to take breaks.


    Any additional comments?

    This book provides wide variety of erotica. Only get this if you are open-minded.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    What made the experience of listening to Halfway to the Grave the most enjoyable?

    The narrators voice inflections for different characters was very entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A mix of intrigue, vampire and action! Great combination! One reviewer said that this story was for teens....no way!!! The series has erotica in it....if you don't like sex, intrigue and vampire then stay away....and it is definitely not Buffy (I loved that show too!)


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed all of them. I personally enjoyed Tavia's rendition of Bones. I picture him to look like James Marsters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series when he was blonde....but buffer!! Others that reviewed this book complained that it wasn't gentlemanly enough....Trust me Bones' background justifies the gritty british accent! I have listened to the entire series....she does Bones beautifully!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The narrator really pulled me into the story....I think she was able to make me laugh, cry and get ticked off at the right moments. Jeanine did a great job making the reader side with Cat in all ways!


    Any additional comments?

    Love Cat and Bones.....can't wait for more of this series!
