Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Poison Princess to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print book but I think the audio would be better b/c of the accents and french words.

    The ending :*

    So many scenes I loved. I would have to say that Jackson talking are my favorites :)

    In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles. With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals

    I think Poison Princess help my attention a bit more but I am still very curious to see what book 3 brings. I am still very much so interested in this series. I think book 2 took a very different turn than I expected so that is a great thing.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…. A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    Another AMAZING story. Cat and Bones have to be one of my all time favorite book couples. I just adore these stories. There are some series that I have just gotten tired of as they just seem to be the same thing over and over again. NOT THIS SERIES! Jeaniene Frost has a magical talent of turning Kat and Bones into real people in my head. They are just amazing characters. The storyline comes to life and lives and breathes throughout the whole book. I am SO FREAKING EXCITED to read what Jeaniene comes up with next!

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this series. When book 3, Allegiant came out, there was CHAOS everywhere. So many people on Facebook were trashing this book. Apparently the book did not go the way they wanted it to. So many people were talking really badly about it, refusing to read it, posting spoilers and just plain being rude.

    I AM SO GLAD I AVOIDED ALL THE SPOILERS! I am so glad I waited for all the hype to wear off before I listened to this book. I read book 1 and listened to book 2 on audio. I was really looking forward to book 3 and I was not disappointed by book 3. I love how author Veronica Roth ended the series and love how she followed her heart. Even though she may have not appealled to all of her readers, she did what she felt was best for her storyline and her characters.

    I am not going to go into any detail of the book as I refuse to post any spoilers. I was hanging on every word of this book. I absolutly loved it and to be honest with you, I cried in more than one part of this book. Some of the times were not even parts one would expect!

    Congrats Author Veronica Roth on an AMAZING series!!!!!

    What made the experience of listening to Save My Soul the most enjoyable?

    What did you like best about this story?

    I don't like to choose 'best" parts. The whole book together was my favorite.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't like to choose 'best" parts. The whole book together was my favorite.


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

    Yes I wish I could listen to it all in one sitting. It def keeps you wondering about the story line and the characters until you are able to sit down and listen to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    What would you do to get it back? That is the dilemma Kendra finds herself in after an accidental fall leaves her fighting for her life. Viewing her body from "above", she sees a very handsome doctor working like mad to save her broken body. When she fully recovers and finds out the truth of her recovery, she is suddenly stricken with the truth: she either has to do what is being asked of her or lose her soul forever. She did not sign up for this. How is she going to do what they ask of her? There is no way she can do what they ask. Her soul is going to be trapped in hell for eternity with a Guardian Demon that is going to enjoy every second of her. How in the world is she going to pull this off?

    THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! It really truly is. I was blown away by the originality of it. I was blown away by this book when I first saw the cover. Life had gotten in my way and I had not had the chance to read it yet. When I found out it was available on audible.com, I immediately downloaded it. I was so happy to have this on audio. I am a HUGE audio fan and this book did not disappoint! If you are a fan of K. S. Haigwood, I highly suggest listening to this book on audio even if you have already read it. The experience is amazing!!!

    What made the experience of listening to Kiss of a Demon King the most enjoyable?

    As with all Kressley Cole's books, the narrator Robert Petkoff makes each character come to life with the amazing distinct voices of each character.


    What other book might you compare Kiss of a Demon King to and why?

    I would not do that. this book is not comparable. This series is amazing and with each book I "read" on audible, the more I fall in love with this world.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    FABULOUS as with all the others


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love the AHA moment with a book ties with the previous book. That is ALWAYS my aha moment! I love it. The other AHA moments are too spoilerish so I will keep them to myself and let you enjoy them all on your own.


    Any additional comments?

    As long as Kressley Cole keeps writing adn Robert Petkoff keeps reading, i will keep on buying every audio book Kressley cole has!!!

    Not fair to do so

    I would not curse this book to a film, Just my opinion.

The story lines are so good you hang on every word and then to have Tavia bringing each character to life even more by their voice makes this a truly enjoyable experience!!!

    Ok and one other part made me cry. They all had to do with Qhuinn!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book wsa a little long in the fact that it seemed to repeat itself a lot. The secondary stories and characters were not as gripping as books past. Half the time, I had no clue who they were talking about b/c i was so focused on the main characters. This is very unusaly for JR Warden books in this series. I love this series and do not mean to take anything away from this book. it was still amazing.
