This book is better than the 2nd one for sure.... The plot is showing bit by bit.... but still... there are many episodes to go... lets see what the 4th one will bring
For every action there is a consequence, thats what Claire learned from her time with Anthony a self made billionaire ... Its starts simple, a guy meets a girl and asks her out, but here this guy is called Anthony, and he is evil and mental... He forces Claire into a sick and mental relationship with him and during that time Claire suffered through severe physical and mental abuse.
Anthony convinced her that she has entered a legal binding agreement to work for him until she pays off her debt to him, from car and bank loans which he paid off, and when the abuse starts she started falling into a severe case of stockholm syndrome.
One thing regarding this book, before i came to its ending, I thought it was too long for nothing, but when i got to its ending, i understood why Aleatha Romig made it this long... Halfway through Consequences you will think "Ahhh, this is whats going to happen in the end" believe me thats not it, its ending was an OHHHHHHHHHHH S%^T moment, I didn't think such thing could happen... am just amazed of its ending.
Lets talk about the therapy part now.. Many reviewers said they can't go to sleep and they need therapy now... I agree, I'm going now to book my appointment.. You have to understand one thing, you will reach a point saying "Whats waw about this?" I did, but when you get to its ending you will understand that every action has a consequence!!!
Narration was really good..
Already got the 2nd book and reading/listening to it right now. Would like to now the consequences of Consequences :D
This collection was very entertaining , from funny to thriller, from sadness to happiness.. Too much of mixed emotions here The following is a quick review for each book in this collection.. Its my longest review yet. :D
“Some Desperado” by Joe Abercrombie; Read by Stana Katic
This is the first book, it showed a woman's strength and her ability to lie and kill to survive the greed of men who are chasing her for the prize of coins. As it was the first book I didn't really understand whats going on, but slowly i understood that no introductions to characters and you get to know them and heir past while you are listening to the story. It was short, but it was good. 4 out of 5
“My Heart Is Either Broken” by Megan Abbott; Read by Jake Weber
Thrilling story about a father, a mother, and their little baby... One day someone steals the baby and the parents are worried sick about her.. The media started to attack the mother and the father doesn't know what to do.. The thrilling part in this story that you start to think that there is something wrong with the mother and you start asking yourself "Did she do something?"... I have really enjoyed it and its ending was perfect. 5 out of 5
“Nora’s Song” by Cecelia Holland; Read by Harriet Walter
In the year 1169, it talks about a dysfunctional royal family and how they treat each other.. Sad story about a little girl, named Nora, who has to face the truth in her young age that her parents (king and queen) are not perfect but also they lie, take, and threat each other.. Sadly she has to live with it and ignore... 3.5 out of 5
“The Hands That Are Not There” by Melinda Snodgrass; Read by Jonathan Frakes
This was a very interesting one , its based on space and humans are among many aliens... The woman in this story is a stripper, which a high official in the government fell in love with.. What she did then was unbelievable!! By the end of the book, I told myself "Be careful if you became a high government official" :D 4 out of 5
“Bombshells” by Jim Butcher; Read by Emily Rankin
I have never red Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, but after listening to this short story i immediately added the first book to my wish list to buy it soon and listen to this series. Am not going to talk much about this book as i don't know the series much, but i really liked it, and went through the book understanding everything very well. 5 out of 5!!!
“Raisa Stepanova” by Carrie Vaughn; Read by Inna Korobkina
This is about a female pilot in WW2 in the soviet union. It talks about her life in the war and how she and her other female pilots strived to become female fighter pilots in the soviet union.. She has a brother in the army as well and really cares about him. This story was simple and good, enjoyed listening to it. 3 out of 5.
“Wrestling Jesus” by Joe R. Lansdale; Read by Scott Brick
its about a teenager who befriends and old wrestler who started training him. The woman in this story is an old lover of the wrestler who left him for another wrestler named Jesus… and his dream is to get her back cause he can’t live without her. I have really enjoyed this story and I really felt bad for the wrestler... Its ending is a really good one.. 4 out of 5.
“Neighbors” by Megan Lindholm; Read by Lee Meriwether
Its about an old woman named Sarah who lives in her house and everyone else from her old friends had either died or in nursing homes. she battles her son as she doesn't want to leave her home to a nursing home, and tries to prove that she can manage everything by herself... This book is a sad one, I really felt bad for Sarah and its ending was sad with a touch of weird. 4 out of 5
“I Know How to Pick ’Em” by Lawrence Block; Read by Jake Weber
A very thrilling story about a man... He had bad experience with his mother in the past and a woman tried to play with him in the present. This one was a bit disturbing, and its ending too.... Narration was really good as well.. There is 22 stories in this collection and this story was one of the ones which got stuck with me and didn't forget. 5 out of 5.
“Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell” by Brandon Sanderson; Read by Claudia Black
It talks about a world where evil spirits live in the forest and people are scared of them. A dangerous woman named Silence who owns an inn is being threaten by a man to pay more or he will take her inn and spill her secret that she is the "White Fox" bounty hunter. She goes to the forest to complete a bounty, but she runs through trouble.
Even though it was a short story, still Brandon Sanderson created a new world with its own evil spirits and you can easily understand whats going on. Brandon Sanderson is truly a gifted author. 5 out of 5.
“A Queen in Exile” by Sharon Kay Penman; Read by Harriet Walter
It was a book about a queen in the 12th century, she tried to protect her people and to do right by them. Her story is quite interesting.. It was an ok book, not my cup of tea.... but it was ok.. 3 out of 5.
“The Girl in the Mirror” by Lev Grossman; Read by Sophie Turner
It was about a group of wizards who one of them played a prank on another wizard... I didn't like this one that much... And its a bit short to write a proper review for why i didn't like it. Regarding the Narration, I think the narrator was the wrong one for this book. And its ending was rubbish. 1 out of 5.
“Second Arabesque, Very Slowly” by Nancy Kress; Read by Janis Ian
Its in a world where 99% of women in this world can’t have children, thus the world fell apart.. its a post apocalyptic world were there are packs and farms, and everyone wants to collect and treasure fertile women to have children .. The main character is an old nurse who lived her life in such pack, and you get to see how life is like in this world. Quite an interesting story, not the usual zombie apocalypse or nuclear ones, its an apocalypse but in a different way. Really enjoyed it. 5 out of 5.
“City Lazarus” by Diana Rowland; Read by Scott Brick
This is about a dirty cup in New Orleans who falls for a stripper ...but there is amother man, who the cup is working for, who wants her too.. I liked this story, and have enjoyed its ending as you wouldn't expect it. 4 out of 5.
“Virgins” by Diana Gabaldon; Read by Allan Scott-Douglas
Its about two Scottish men who work as mercenaries ... They take a job to ascot a lady to her soon-to-be husband in paris.. But she has other plans.
Interesting book this one was... I have really liked the narrator as well as he did the accents perfectly. 4.5 out of 5.
“Hell Hath No Fury” by Sherilynn Kenyon; Read by Jenna Lamia
A team who are looking for the supernatural.. They go to a cursed town to look for gold, but they find something else.. The story was short, shorter than the rest , but still it was good. The woman in this story is a psychic who get connected with the woman who cursed the town.. The narrator was good, but not for this book, as the team were men and women, but she gave them teenagers' voices, I thought it was a kid team until i red it again were it clearly pointed out that it was an adult team. 4 out of 5
“Pronouncing Doom” by S.M. Stirling; Read by Stana Katic
Fantastic book set in a time where electricity is gone and everyone went back to live the old way. People live in communities and everyone have their own tasks to do to keep the community going.. The woman in this story is the leader of one of these communities... And her task in this book is to give judgement regarding a man's criminal actions toward the community, its hard but it has to be done... I liked this book, its realistic and you can feel that such world did exist and it could exist if electricity ran out. 5 out of 5
“Name the Beast” by Sam Sykes; Read by Claudia Black
This book was confusing , something about hunting and stuff like that... Just too confusing.... I really got so confused, couldn't understand anything 1 out of 5.
“Caregivers” by Pat Cadigan; Read by Janis Ian
Its about two middle aged women who their mom is in a home... The younger sister volunteers in the home to help and assist the residence ... But during that time the older sister started to notice that some odd things are happening in the home. I have enjoyed this book as its ending was satisfying and there were few funny jokes too.. 4 out of 5
“Lies My Mother Told Me” by Caroline Spector; Read by Maggi-Meg Reed
A really good book… I have really enjoyed it.. Its about people called Aces, and Jokers.. They have supernatural powers… A superhero woman named bubbles (Ya!! Thats her name, and she kill with bubbles) is under attack from an unknown organisation who their goal is to control her by attacking her friends… although its a short story, still its a fantastic one… characters were good, plenty of back story and action…. I have really enjoyed listening to this book. 5 out of 5
“The Princess and the Queen” by George R. R. Martin; Read by Iain Glen
I think most of the readers who will buy and bought this book was for this part by George R. R. Martin.. If you are A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire series fan, you will get to know the history of the world you are reading/listening to, and how did the dragons die.. There were too many wars in this book and too many events.. and i think it would have been better if this book was a bit longer as i kept on jumping from war to war, and i got confused for a bit... But still it was amazing and its ending was good.. 5 out of 5.
I just finished reading/listening to "How to flirt with a naked werewolf" and before i finished it i already had this book downloading into my iPhone to have a listen to it. Just finished it and i loved it. One of my favourite things in a series is having every book talking from the perspective of a new character, and this is what Molly did, she took Maggie, the alpha werewolf, and made her the main character in this book and that was a good choice.
The sisterhood thingy between Maggie and Mo is hilarious, and the new guy Maggie meets .... well you have to get the book to know, but he is a good character in this book..
Have a listen, you will love it.
I'm a regular, i tend to see and read about many books here at audible.com... i kept on seeing this book, and i knew it was a best seller at audible, but for some weird reason i didn't even stop to read its summary.... i just red it the day before i wrote the review, and i loved it.. it was funny, it was engaging and i couldn't stop listening to it...
This is the first time i listen to a Molly Harper book, and i can see/hear/read her talent and why she is a good author.
What i like about this book that werewolves are big deal, but the main character doesn't really give a damn about that.. you get plenty of jokes and its ending was very good.
Basically its damn good, damn funny, and you get to like these characters.
Already bought the 2nd book, reading it right now.. and will pre order the 3rd one soon.
After putting off reading Jane Yellowrock first book, I immediately started reading the 2nd book.. and soon will start with the 3rd one too.. You meet Molly (Jane's best friend) and her kids, and you will love them....
The hunt goes on for the vamp maker and it gets really interesting. You learn more about vamps and very interesting and OMG moments you get while reading this book.
Larson started a new series and i do like it... This new series is set where earth has joined the Galactic and offer their soldiers for credits. This one had plenty of action as well.. But what i liked the most here is that there is a unique idea here which is not in any other series .. But i can't say, i will spoil the book to you guys...
If you liked Larson's Star Force series, chances are you will enjoy this one too.
Narration is good, but for Star Force fans, you will easily otic the narrator making the same voices for characters in star force series here ini Steel World, which i found confusing a bit.
Sadly I bought this book last year, but I wasn't in the mind set to read it at the time.. But now I'm kicking myself for not reading it at the time.. This is a really good book and a good series, just got the 2nd and 3rd, and will get the rest afterwards.
Jane is hired by vampires to kill a crazy vampire who is killing vampires and humans , no one knows who is it and she starts investigating. I kept on thinking that it will be a simple plot nothing wow about it and no twists, but I was wrong, too many interesting twists happen in this book and its ending is good. And during this book and I assume the rest of the series, Jane gets to know more and more about her past and who she is, its always to discover who is the main character when she doesn't know her past that well.
Pick it up, you will like it.
If you are a Mark Tufo fan, you most probably already know the fallout zombie series.. In this book its the other way around, you are not listening to the survivors, you are listening to one zombie's experience!!!!! Creepy!!!!!!
I loved the book, it was fantastic, and our friend Mike is there somewhere in the book, but its just too bloody... i got to some points where i felt evil and horror coming out from my headphones, which made me take a break..... Its too bloody!!!!
But even though, you have to get it and read it.
Enjoy!!!! As much as you can..
In this Volume there is 2 books, the first book was amazing and too many changes, and the last book was a fantastic finishing to a fantastic series.. Honestly I was shocked with its ending and loved it.
I can't give a detailed review as others can for this series, but honestly in my opinion it had a good start and it had a great finish..
Another good zombie series,, not all zombie books are good, specially when they are realistic a bit, but this one is fantastic!!!!
i liked the plot, I liked the story, and I liked the main character... The challenges are good, and the twists too.
For those who like Zombie books you will like this one.
