    Sent to execute the king’s cryptic command to destroy an evil sorcerer, capture his castle, and take his daughter to wife, Alain De Crency expects a hard siege. Instead, the castle is undefended, the daughter vanished, and the sorcerer dead, shrouded in a purple cloak. Alain lays claim to the cloak and searches for the missing daughter. But soon he faces a new dilemma: How can he marry the missing lady when a beautiful, evasive servant has captured his desire?

    What would have made Fire Dance better?

    Another performer


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I have no idea... I didn't make it that far.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Page’s performance?

    He should work on his delivery. He reads very well and has a nice voice but he somehow manages to make the hero sound like a pompous a$$ and the heroine like a weak ninny. He completely fails to establish the hero's sense of humor or kindness. Don't even get me started on the heroin's voice!


    Any additional comments?

    I was a bit dissapointed. This might have been a good book had I been reading the paperback version.

    Paranormal romance authors Alexandra Ivy, Nina Bangs, Dianne Duvall, and Hannah Jayne present four original novellas in this exciting anthology.

    What would have made Predatory better?

    Better editing, maybe?


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Yes, I usually like stories by these authors. But either writting novellas isn't their forte, or someone did some major hacking in the editing department.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arika Rapson?

    She would actually be a decent narrator if she didnt make the characters sound like they were constantly whining. She sounded like she might have had some sinus issues going on.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I wasted a credit. I couldn't even finish. The narrator was whiney and there was hardly a distinction between charachters which made it difficult to follow at times. Not to mention the accents were pretty laughable.

    In an ancient cemetery, travel writer Jade MacGregor’s tour of a Scottish tomb is marred by a terrifying attack that leaves her surrounded by corpses drained of blood. A year later, back home on a shadowy French Quarter street, she glimpses the oddly compelling stranger she met that day. Coincidence - or is it something far more disturbing?

    What disappointed you about When Darkness Falls?

    The whole thing. I usually love Heather Graham's work but I couldn't even force myself to finish this one. I tried... I really did! But alas, I only completed about 2/3 of it. What a shame to waste all that time to not even finish the darn book.


    What could Heather Graham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I thought the charachters were poorly written. I could care less what happened to them. they were unlikable as well as a bit shallow and dull. The plot had no substance.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya Eby’s performances?

    Maybe.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy the occasional YA novel, but usually prefer more adult material like Kresley's IAD series. This story, however, completely blew me away! I didn't want to stop listening & whenever I had to I would find excuses to plug my headphones back in. Kresley Cole did another outstanding job with plot & character development. She really draws you in and you find yourself even caring about what happens to the not so nice people. I can't wait for Endless Knight to come out... I hope they keep Emma Galvin as the performer!
