    Devyn Kell spent his life in service to the League until he learned of the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner - someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive.

    The American pianist Jonathan Biss is known to audiences throughout the world for his artistry, musical intelligence, and deeply felt interpretations. What is less known until now is that Jonathan Biss writes about music in a most compelling and engaging way. For anyone who has ever enjoyed a Beethoven concert or a Beethoven recording, or one of the many films about Beethoven, this audiobook is an inspiring listening experience.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It took me a bit to get into this book because the subject is not one I am drawn to. However if you are a fan of music particularly classical music I think you would quite enjoy this work. It's well preformed and composed. Even I found it fascinating once I got into it. I never realized how much work and thought was put into playing just one piece of music.


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

    This book did not spark any large emotions in me, but it did make me think about the artistic possess and made me realized that how people interact with a piece after it is completed is just as important (if not more so) than the making of that piece of art, regardless of what kind of art it is.

    Elena Klovis was supposed to be her kingdom's Cinderella - until an accident of fate left her with a completely inappropriate prince! Determined not to remain with her stepfamily, Elena set out to get a new job - and ended up becoming the Fairy Godmother for the land. But "Breaking with Tradition" was no easy matter. True, she didn't have to sleep in the chimney, but she had to deal with arrogant, stuffed-shirt princes who kept trying to rise above their place in the tale.

    Captain Skurvy says: "An excellent start to a new series"

    If you could sum up The Fairy Godmother in three words, what would they be?

    Cinderella becomes Godmother


    What other book might you compare The Fairy Godmother to and why?

    I don't know of another book that I could compare it to but, I was put in mind of the movie "Ever After". Both story's put a twist on the traditional Cinderella tail, where the maiden is empowered. However this tail takes that twist much further and adds a lot more twists and turns to the point that it completely deviates from that tail for most of the story, but comes nicely back to it at the end.


    What does Gabra Zackman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was a wonderful reader. Each character had it's own distinct voice, but it was not overly dramatized.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh This book was lovely! I laughed most of my way through it. I could not point to only one part of the book because that would require me picking a favorite part. This is a book that I know I will be able to come back to time and again and find enjoyable each time.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this book you'll be happy you spent the credit.

    Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding... and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human - as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion - the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco.

    What did you like best about Lair of the Lion? What did you like least?

    I can't say what I liked best or least about this book. The reader was so bad that I could not keep track of what was going on. The sex was good, but the reader read everything like a moment of tension witch made it hard to understand and keep up with the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?

    NO defiantly not, she tries to hard. Everything... is... said.... with... breathless... anticipation.

    Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her - silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view: her own, as she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world.

    If you like introspection (A LOT), then you would really get a kick out of this story. If you like Victorian style writing you will most likely enjoy this story as well. If you like things to get to the point then stay away it will drive you slowly mad.

    This was a cute love story. Not much in the way of thinking and more angst than I normally like, but it was sweet and good for a short drive (3 hours or less).

    Would you consider the audio edition of Born of Night to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version so I cant say, but I have listen to this one several times already.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The strong sassy characters. Also that they where flawed and had difficult background that affected their actions and reactions, but the angst level was very low.


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

    Oh Yes! I could not turn it off, but if I wanted to sleep I had to (sob).
