    In the third novel of the Liaden Universe, Priscilla Delacroix is betrayed and abandoned by her shipmates. But confronting the crew will be far easier - and safer - than confronting the demons of her past.

    What made the experience of listening to Conflict of Honors the most enjoyable?

    That I could listen to something I've read so many times the book is falling apart.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how this book ties in with all the rest so well, The different cultures in the worlds involved in the liaden series are not strangers to prejudice, cultural misunderstandings, religious zealots, vengence, and drug problems. Despite all that this is more of a romantic story, and not a negative one at all.


    What three words best describe Andy Caploe’s voice?

    Flat. (I wasn't a fan of his voice.)


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

    "Or a lesson in not angering dragons."


    Any additional comments?

    The entire series is well worth your time. Start with agent of change.

    With her phenomenal Mage Winds trilogy, bestselling author Mercedes Lackey captivated fans across the country. Now in the first volume of the series sequel, she continues the same storyline, returning readers to a war-torn Valdemar in preparation to confront an ancient Eastern Empire - ruled by a monarch whose magical tactics by be beyond any sorcery known to the western kingdoms.

    What did you love best about Storm Warning?

    I actually liked the narrator.


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

    ...what a silly question. This is book 1 of a trilogy that takes place directly after a trilogy that takes place a few years after a trilogy. There are endings?


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

    I can do the dishes while reading


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of people complain about this narrator but he's better than the one they got for the last herald Mage trilogy who mispronounced simple English words like bow. I could do without the raspy voice for some characters but otherwise I found him enjoyable to listen to.

    Skylar is used to the way people think of him as frightening, mean, and dangerous. Snakes are not the most popular shifters around and the fact he grew up wild doesn't help. He knows the way he's chosen to live alone in the woods only makes things worse, but he didn't think it meant people thought him capable of killing a couple of wolf puppies. Determined to find the real monster who left them to die, Skylar calls up the only wolf he knows, a man he always wished would see him as more than a snake…

    What made the experience of listening to Backwoods Asylum the most enjoyable?

    I liked the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that it's an enjoyable little story. It's about shapeshifters, but there isn't a bunch of running naked through the woods or fighting with their natures or any of that sort of overdone thing. Just a man that can be a snake rescuing some wolf-shifter puppies.


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

    His tone really set the easy going light feeling to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The small press this story comes from is for homosexual romances, so if that's not your thing, move right along.

    Also, this is a short story, and I'd advise buying it rather than using a credit due to it's length.

    Story

    The New York Times bestselling author of The Shattering and Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects delivers a sensational tie-in to the newest World of Warcraft game expansion. What does it take to turn the peacekeeper into a warmonger? Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War gives World of Warcraft fans the opportunity to see what happens when a beloved peacekeeper is pressed to the limit by an inconceivable horror. Will it change her forever? Break her? Or redefine her role on Azeroth?

    Gabriel Cersonsky says: "Enjoyable"

    Would you listen to World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War again? Why?

    Yes. Because audiobooks are expensive, the narrator's voice isn't bad, and the story is good.


    What other book might you compare World of Warcraft: Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War to and why?

    None, really I haven't listened to any of the other Warcraft audio books.


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

    Audio books in general are great because you can do other things while "reading." it also allows you to focus more in the story than if you are a speedy reader like I am. Justine does an acceptable job as a narrator, and I would definitely listen to her work again.


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

    ...no.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fantastic companion novel for those who play World of Warcraft. I picked it up because I'm the leader of a role-playing guild on WoW and the lore in it is practically essential to being able to understand the scope of Garrosh's actions.

    The story itself is good, the romance in it seemed vaguely forced, but I've never been a fan of that particular male character. The best parts to this horde player were the parts showing Baine and Vol'jin's unease with the entire situation. I most certainly will be buying an audio book version of the next novel when it is released.
