    Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern...until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

    Overall

    Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers, so he swears off women only concentrating on fighing the hunters, until he mets Gwen, an immortal herself, who always thought she'd fall for a kind human who wouldn't rouse her darker side. Through each other they both learn to embrace their darker side and learn to trust each other and then love each other. this was one of the best books yet and I can not wait until the next book. I have to say that Max Bellmore is one of the best narrator's I have ever had the pleasure of listening too and he makes each character stand out on their own with their own voices. He even does the women's voices great. I really hope he continues to be the narrator for the rest of the books.

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

    yes if they enjoy a great action packed edge of your seat romantic story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Indigo Spell?

    Sidney and Adrian, the chemestry these two exhibit in this book is astounding and I couldn't have been happier.


    What about Emily Shaffer’s performance did you like?

    Everything. You can always tell the difference of who is speaking, male or female. the different, tones, inflections and accents she gives each character is perfect. I love the voice she gave Adrian. I will happily listen to books read by Emily Shaffer as her performance is always spot on and a narrator can make or break an audiobook, Emily shaffer makes it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Adventures, mysterious and action packed


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Bloodlines Series and can't wait for the next book to come out!

    The book started off good in book 1 and downhill after that. I couldn't stand Ever by the last book. How many times can she shrug, roll her eyes or nibble her lip? I'm glad the series is finished. Katie Schorr did a great job as the narrator.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Story

    Character development, magic, action, comedy, drama, romance--these elements have been what keeps the storyline going and makes it so special for fans of this series. Harrison hits all of that in her writing. She addresses several particular issues when it comes to Rachel's relationships, as well as the relationships between the people around her. While I've been a card-carrying Trent and Rachel supporter since Book 1, there's attention given to her relationships with him, Pierce, Ivy, and Al too. Like any fan, of course I have certain hopes.
    I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one out. As usual Marguerite Gavin is a wonderful Narrator.

    I was very excited to find that in River Marked we get to see a more romantic side of Mercy as she and Adam take their relationship to a whole new level. While River Marked is a bit different from the previous books in that there is more romance which I loved. There is still gritty violence and some intense action and Mercy is still the star of the show. This series continues to be a favorite and Lorelei King an amazing narrator.

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Story

    This book felt tired to me. Loved the original trilogy--Clary comes across powerful, even in her most insecure moments. In this latest installment she is pathetic. Her and Jace's actions are reduced to mad making out and Clary chasing, while Jace evades her...and really, that's it until the big somewhat climactic ending. I was sort of disappointed in this book.

Delilah's a werecat and blossoming Death Maiden. And as for me? I'm Menolly, acrobat-extraordinaire-turned-vampire. But being a vamp isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when the Godfather of all vampires decides to play Prince Charming.... Plus, a vampire serial killer is on the loose. Hungry ghosts are tearing up the town, and people are running scared."

    Blood Wyne has to be the best Menolly book so far in this series. I enjoyed getting a deeper look into her personality beyond her being brutalized & turned. There is quite a bit of character growth in this book for her- and the rest of the extended "family", I am still enjoying the books with the middle sister being my favorite.

    Overall

    Harvest Hunting continues Delilahs Story. I enjoyed Delilah's POV ..The plots are weaved together creating a series of events that keeps the pace flowing really well. Delilah as we know is a werecat shifter that is usually very emotional and gets overwhelmed very quickly, Well she totally comes out of her shell in Harvest Hunting. Not only is there tons of action there is tons of change. Delilah finally starts training to be a death maiden and she also gets a great look into her destiny with the Death Maidens and the Autumn lord and comes to terms with it. In the previous book, after a huge battle with their enemies, the girls had to give Chase, Delilah's human love interest, the Nectar of Life to save his life. Unfortunately, it also made him not-so-human, adding hundreds of years to his lifespan and sparking his latent psychic powers. He's not dealing so well with the sudden changes and breaks it off with Delilah. I was sad Chase and Delilah broke up, but by the end of the book it was put to rights. Shade, a shadow dragon, comes to be Delilah's new love interest, sent by the Autumn Lord. I loved Shade and can't wait to find out more about him. I have enjoyed reading all the stories of the D'Artigo sisters and am looking forward to what comes next.

    Five years ago, Dru Rayne and her uncle fled from Louisiana to Los Angeles after Hurricane Katrina hit, but now they face a different kind of danger. A neighborhood protection gang savagely beats Dru’s uncle, but Pike witnesses it and offers his own brand of protection. Oddly enough, neither of them seems to want it — and neither do the federal agents mysteriously watching their storefront, men who appear quite willing to let the gang have its way.

    S. Harvey says: "Vintage Crais"
    "I love Joe Pike and Elvis Cole!!"
    Overall

    Reading a Robert Crais hard-boiled novel is always a cinematic experience, and The Sentry follows that tradition seamlessly with a compelling list of zany characters all depicted with wonderful vividness. The dialogue is bullet-fast, witty, and never flags, culminating in a story both riveting and original. It really doesn't get much better in meaty thrillers than this. The audio production adds a special dimension akin to sitting and listening to a great old storyteller, who knows how to make the characters come alive. Luke Daniels does a specular job as the narrator. Well produced and performed masterfully. Joe Pike and Elvis Cole keep me coming back for more.
