    Thomas Ward has spent two years as the Spook's apprentice. He's faced unimaginable peril, and survived. But a new danger has emerged: an ancient water witch, Bloodeye, is roaming the County intent on destroying everything in her path. To strengthen his skills, Tom is sent to the far north to train with the demanding Bill Arkwright. Will Tom's new bag of tricks be enough to overcome a critical mistake that leaves him confronting Bloodeye on his own?

    This was excellent! I have physically read the other "Last Apprentice" books and was hesitant to listen to this one but I am delighted with it. the author kept the listeners attention and the reader, Welch, did an excellent job narrating it. I will keep following this author via audiobooks rather than purchasing the physical copy. It is much more interesting.

    Kidwella Castle in northern Wales is rumored to be haunted by a deadly ghost - the Grim Widow, who allegedly drowns unsuspecting guests in the castle’s moat. Not long after M. J. and her crew arrive at the castle to film their ghost-hunting cable TV show, Ghoul Getters, two new victims are added to the Widow’s grisly roster. Fear ripples through the castle, especially when it’s discovered that the victims may have had help into their watery graves from the land of the living.

    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    I loved this story - it spoke to those of us who aren't blonde, gorgeous, thin and all that. It was carefree and entertaining - the gorgeous didn't get the guy for a change. The narration was excellent and easy to listen to. Well worth my credit!

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    G. House Sr. says: "Tedious Formulaic with same-old same-old"

    Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

    Mark says: "Not anywhere near as good as the zombie series"
    "Excellent - Highly recommend listening"

    Story

    This is an excellent series of books - Mark Tufo has joined the ranks of Brian Keene, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King in keeping the suspense. Character development is excellent and flow is smooth and easy - The narrator is excellent as well - he IS the voice of Michael Talbot.
    Dont' miss this first in a series - excellent!

    The story line was great - romance, action and supernatural all mixed in with a handful or two of comedy. The voices were great and kept up, fast paced story - it is awesome - of course Stephanie Plum is the best but the Full series take a close 2nd.

    "The Host"
    Overall

    I have read this book but was drawn to hearing it read to me. I was hoping that the audio would be as good as my actual reading of it. I found that Reading did an excellent job with narrating it and as usual Stephanie Meyer outdid herself in her first foray into adult writing. I used to be a big fan of Stephen King but when I heard him say Meyer could not write, I lost all respect for him as a writer and reviewer. Meyer has done an excellent job with writing about an old over done subject. Her new twists and plot were excellent. Great job!
