I love Urban Fantasy, Paranormal romance and dystopian novels. I almost always have either a book in my hands, or an audiobook in my ear!

    It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed, and it's the worst day of her life....Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit. She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again.

    I have enjoyed work from both author Rachel Vincent and narrator Amanda Ronconi. So when I saw them together, I jumped for it. I plan on listening all of the books in this series. Plus it's free!! It is a full story...not just a piece of a book!! What do you have to loose, I wish you could get a 2 hour preview story on other series as well!!

    This book provides a much-needed resource for family and friends of the more than 5 million American adults suffering from bipolar disorder. From psychotic behavior that requires medication to milder mood swings with disturbing ups and down, this book offers a warm and often humorous user-friend guide for coping with bipolar loved ones, colleagues, and friends. This important book contains real-life illustrative examples and a wealth of helpful strategies and coping mechanisms that can be put into action immediately.

    After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend.

    If you love the Kate Daniels series, you have to listen to this one. In this book, Andrea is the main character and grows so much. It is funny, emotional, full of action and just one of thoes books you would want to listen to again and again.
    I love Renee Raudman as well. She is one of my favorites!! You can't go wrong with this book, or any of the Kate Daniels books!!

    It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death. Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

    Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least at first. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

    I really love this series. it is passionate and so well written.
    Start with Under the Nerer Sky (book 1) which is also brilliant! If you can read the novella 'Liv and Roar Under the Never Sky' I would read it first, but you don't have to read the novella to understand book 2 if you have read book 1. It is not on audible.com, but it is pretty short and it really gives you a nice background.
    I didn't love the narrator, but he wasn't distracting bad or anything.

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    I loved this book. I love the separation between Jane and Beast, two separate beings in one body, working for a common goal. I really liked getting to know both distinctive personalities. The narrator Khristine Hvam is great as well. And there is even a sample from book 2 at the end, which I am just about to buy!
    If you like the Spider (Elemental Assasin) series by Jennifer Estep, the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, or the Kate Daniels series by Illona Andrews you will like this...and if you haven't listened the above listed series they are all incredible as well!!
    Happy listenenig!!

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    Story

    I love this series. It is great for anyone who loves UF (urban fantasy) books. Some of you out there love UF, but are not into the x-rated love stories some UF books have. This series only has one or two love scenes inthe whole series, but all of the passion. The characters are so easy to relate to and absolutly loveable! Kim Harrison's books have never let me down!

    THe narrator, Marguerite Gavin is amazing! I listened to the Kitty Norville series (by Carrie Vaugn) mainly because Marguerite Gavin narrated it (it is also an must listen to series!!) You just can't go wrong with these books...If you have not read this series yet...start with the 1st book (Dead Witch Walking). You do need to read them in order, or else it won't make sense. But the growth of the characters is a great ride! I hope this helps and happy listening!!

    This is a great story of how Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Neverland came to be. It is narrated by Jim Dale, who is one of the best narrators in the universe!! Every time a new part of the Peter Pan story's oriigin is revealed I was amazed! It has sword fights, mermaids, pirarates, a fairy and wonderful characters who I both loved, and loved to hat! This story is for everyone.. boys, girls and adults and children alike.
    I plan on reading all of the books in this series! I cannot wait to be a part of Peter and Tinkerbell's adventures in the next 3 books!! Get this book...you will be glad you did!!

    I do rely on the reviews of fellow listeners. So when I saw a review that the MC was whiny I passed on it for a while. Then the 3 books for 2 credits deal came along, so I decided I was going to get it. I am so very glad I did...I love this book!
    Faythe is a 23 yr old, who wants nothing more than Independence from her pride. But the responsibilities that waits for her at home are massive. She needed to grieve for her "human" life that she had so wanted to live, she needed to be angry, and maybe even whine a little, wouldn't you? But she is not just anyone. She is brave, and stubborn and can kick butt like any guy. She is a female WereCat, and that makes her rare. there are only 8 female WereCats of child bearing age not already married in the entire USA. That means the tomcats of the pride with go to any length to protect her. But a tabby (female cat) has gone missing, one that Faythe knows and loves.
    But now what will she do when her family really needs her? Run to freedom and leave the problem to the pride, or stay and fight with the rest of her family?

    I love this series so much, but hands down Delilah, the were cat is my favorite Character. This book had me laughing out loud one minute and at the edge of my seat the next. The characters are so likable, and the growth (especially of Delilah) is incredible to see throughout the series. The narrator is perfect for this series as well. You must read the books in order since it is an ongoing story, and quite a ride! I love everything Yasmine Galenorn writes, pick up this series...I am so glad I did!
