    It's tough being a faery in New Orleans, a city fraught with vampires...especially when their very existence drains your life force. Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother's mysterious death, Willow's life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner-her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he's turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not at all. To me it was all over the place. I couldn't get the characters straight while listening. Everyone sounded pretty much the same to me.


    What was most disappointing about Deanna Chase’s story?

    I liked her other books but the main character in this story just annoys me to death. She is whiny and comes to too many WRONG conclusions about situations. I gritted my teeth during the first hour and I had to stop.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voices she did were horrible. It was very annoying. Half the time I couldn't distiguish what character she was. She was very boring, slow, and monitone.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book when it was on sale for 1.99. To me it was way to much for it. Dont waste your time buying this book.

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    Would you try another book from Richelle Mead and/or Emily Shaffer and Alden Ford ?

    I love love loved Adrian in the books from Vampire Acadamey into the 3rd book into the Bloodlines book. I thought Emily did a FANTASTIC job on his voice. But to listen to this book and to have them bring in some guy to do Adrians voice?! No. It totally messed it up for me. Adrian is meant to have a british accent not some flat dull voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm still listening to it but it's really hard for me to get into it since the voices are all messed up.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Shaffer and Alden Ford ’s performances?

    I love Emily Shaffer. I think she does a faboulous job on reading. Alden? I'm sure he tried his hardest but I couldn't listen to him. I hope the next book that comes out is JUST Emily!


    Was The Fiery Heart worth the listening time?

    I couldn't fairly answer this yet. I just started it. Though it is hard for me to get through it since it's so confusing for Adrian to sound so different.


    Any additional comments?

    Please consider re-doing this book with JUST EMILY. Shes done a fantastic job on all the books and I think it would be perfect just to leave her as the ONLY narrator.

  • Tempted: House of Night Series, Book 6

    So...you'd think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark's life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions.

    Would you try another book from P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast and/or Cassandra Morris?

    I love the books by them but for this title i'm going to just have to buy the book itself.


    What was most disappointing about P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast ’s story?

    The narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Ugh where do I begin? It sounded like she was in a tunnel. She is too rushed. Can't pronounce half the names right. The way she ends each and every sentence annoys me because it seems like she is about to continue the sentence instead of stopping at the end. Everything is a run on. I can't even tell what character is talking because they all sound the same and they all sound so evil. I had to stop listening to this book all together. I stopped listening after she entered chapter 3. I had hoped it would get better but I just couldn't tollerate it anymore.


    What character would you cut from Tempted?

    The narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest just getting the physical book of this one. Unless you can tollerate her ramblings for 11 hours.

    Sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird has just been Marked as a fledgling vampire and joins the House of Night, a school where she will train to become an adult vampire. That is, if she makes it through the Change - and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends, and on top of that, Zoey is no ordinary fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the vampire Goddess Nyx.

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

    I think most of my friends have read this series! They kept trying to get me to read them all but never found the time. Finally I gave in. I would definitely recommend this book to others. Such a great story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Stevie Ray. I just love how laid back she is and how true she is.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Backed away from the Mic when swallowing. It really started to get on my nerves after awhile.
