    With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa Grant takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family — father, mother, and two children — disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that’s not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It should either be a little more thought provoking or move a little faster.


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

    Saw it coming a mile away & kept waiting for the wrap up.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Scott


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More suspense, instead of everything being more-than-hinted at. And a more drawn out story for Scott & Lisa...that was too ”we're fighting, now we're in love” without a lot in between.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a really good concept for a story, but the author missed the subtleties and suspense nuances that would have fleshed it out into a great story.

    Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act, and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state. Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

    Story
    Where does Dark Edge of Honor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a very erotic & emotional story of struggles, both inside and out. Very thrilling and engrossing.


    Would you recommend Dark Edge of Honor to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, the internal and external struggles based on duty, upbringing & loyalties span many prejudices and are relatable for many timeframes. Thoughtful & eyeopening.


    What about Jack LeFleur’s performance did you like?

    Amazing! He has the best voice! Low, sexy, enthralling...and that accent!! Yum!


    If you could take any character from Dark Edge of Honor out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Do I really have to choose? A ”Mike/Sergei sandwich” would be yummy!


    Any additional comments?

    I think it's wonderful to explore new genres and subject matter to expand your mind and enhance your experiences.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    "Amazing Continuation of a Wonderful Story!"

    Where does Shadow of Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Picks up right where A Discovery of Witches left of and jumps into a whole new world of historical people, places and new obstacles for Matthew & Diana to overcome. Contains some of the most descriptive and interesting nuances of any book I've ever read or listened to.


    What other book might you compare Shadow of Night to and why?

    This book is like nothing else...with the exception of its predecessor, A Discovery of Witches. There are so many real life people, places, historical events and opportunities for research-linking so much together you just can't even fathom! But even without knowing anything about those elaborate intricacies, it's a wonderfully fun and exciting experience. The first book seemed to be more about Diana, and from her point of view. This book seems to concentrate mire on Matthew, an his point of view. But don't worry, neither is left out of either book. In each, they both discover a great deal about each other...and themselves.


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    Jennifer Ikeda is a wonderful narrator and does an amazing job capturing all the accents, inflections and nuances of each character! It's simply unbelievable to me how she can come up with so many different voices for so many different characters, making each one completely separate and distinct!


    If you could take any character from Shadow of Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Obviously, I would take Matthew out! He's the quintessentially perfect man-in my opinion! I'd love to try all the wines he loves & watch him savor their scents and tastes! And then, of course, there's the incredible vampire stamina and inventiveness in the bedroom I'd LOVE to experience! :°)
