    If you could sum up Night Reigns in three words, what would they be?

    Even though it sometimes seems as if I am missing information, what I am seeking shows up eventually. It was the same with the first book as well. I felt like I had the story, but not the explanation until later in the book. I love that about them. It's like your waiting for a surprise gift, wondering when it will arrive. A nice stay at home winter read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Reigns?

    Finding out about Amy was a surprise.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Seth because I can't wait to hear about him.


    Any additional comments?

    Kirstin Potter does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. Her voice is easy to listen to. I can easily differentiate between the characters without thinking about it and her voice is very clear on my ipod.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    Where does Feral Sins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks rather high. I was skeptical about this book, but right after I started listening to it, I was hooked. I always try to figure out where the story will go, but each time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was surprised. The narrator was wonderful. I especially loved Taryn's sense of humor and her relationship with Grandmother Gretta. A good love story which included some great laughs, great comebacks, some tears and sexy steamy content. Loved it and looking forward to book 2 Wicked Cravings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Taryn's comebacks. Narrator Jill Redfield knows how to deliver a line.


    Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed Taryn's sense of humor, Trey, but Grandmother Gretta is a kick.


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

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to those who love paranormal romance and like to laugh and cry while listening to a book.

    Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.

    I would listen to the book again because I enjoyed the narration, the characters and the story.

    The smooth timber of their voices, the accents, I just loved everything about how this book was narrated.


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

    Any additional comments?

    It has been a while so I re-listened to the first 22 books in the Dark Hunter series to become familiar with all the characters. After listening to all of them non stop, I realized the stories were so similar in the way they flowed. This book seemed to be different from the first 22 books in the series. The first 22 books were boy meets life mate, boy converts life mate and then boy fights battle. This story seemed to evolve with time. There was a lot of substance to the story and the way the story flowed was a nice change to the previous books.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    What made the experience of listening to An Echo in the Bone the most enjoyable?

    Diana Gabaldon never fails to captivate. This is my all time favorite series. I have read the series five times and I never fail to be thoroughly involved.


    What other book might you compare An Echo in the Bone to and why?

    I would compare the entire series to Sara Donati's Wilderness series. In fact, I love the cross over characters with an entirely different story.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She makes me feel, see and smell the story. I love everything she performs.


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

    Can't wait for the next book!

    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    Overall

    I was fortunate to have Jean Auel's previous books in audio, so I was able to listen to those first before jumping into Land of Painted Caves. Had I not done that, my opinions may be much different. The cadence in this book was pretty much the same as the previous books. I think Jean Auels books are more about the anthropology, archaeology and evolution of the people of that time period as opposed to the life and love story of Ayla. I enjoyed the book much like I did her previous novels. I have read much better books but what can I say, I am a fan. I am glad I purchased Land of Painted Caves as I intend to return to the series someday. Regardless, without giving too much away, it left me with more questions than I had at the end of the last book. This is one you will need to judge for yourselves.
