  • Broken Mirrors: A Marla Mason Novel

    A Marla Mason novel! She's an ass-kicking sorcerer who doesn't wear a leather catsuit, doesn't suffer from low self-esteem, doesn't wallow in angst, and is almost always absolutely certain she's right... even when she's dead wrong. What about Broken Mirrors? It's got monsters. It's got sarcasm. It's got death, betrayal, ancient gods, dark doppelgangers, mirror worlds, wisecracks, artifacts, oracles, and magical daggers. Oh... and a cloak.

    Story

    I am only part way through this book but I am finding the latest annoying at best. Marla's Character seems to regress with each new book rather then grow. She comes across like a spoiled petulant child. I expected better. I enjoyed Jessica Almasy's narration of the first books but she seems to have changed her style in this book too and I am unclear as to why. For me a dissapointment so far hopefully the story improves.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    This series is absolutely incredible. Down load the first and don't stop till you listen to the last.

    Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia. To add insult to injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales.

    Overall

    ...for the entire series. Buy it Buy it Buy it!!!! Jacky Fabor is a character to end all characters. Pippi Longstocking, Anne of Green Gables and Huckleberry Finn all rolled into one. I must admit I was quite surprised to find the author was male. The entire series was swashbuckling fun from start to finish and pure joyful fanciful escapism. I hated to see the series come to an end.It is good to know there will be more and I can hardly wait. KUDO's to Katherine Kellgrin!! She is absolutely incredible what a talent!!! I truly believe her narration made for an incredible audio book. I am not surprised that two books from this series won 2010 Audie Awards.

    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    Heather says: "Rick Riordan does it again..."
    "One Narrator too many...."
    Overall

    I absolutely adore Katherine Kellgren! The producers should never have had Kevin Free narrate as Carter he sounds effeminate can not do an english accent to save his life and ought not to have tried. Katherine has such a wide and diverse vocal ability it would have been a joy to listen to her narrate the entire book. Good story that was spoiled slightly by a poor choice of male narrator.

    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Paul says: "Stunning Tale. Great Narration."
    "This is a wonderful book"
    Overall

    I just could NOT stop listening. Well written and very well narrated. I could almost feel the cold hear the snow crunching and smell the wood fires. I find it absolutely amazing to read that other reveiwers are so offended by the sexually explicit language. The words weren't expletives or there to shock or attract readers Why is it so hard to believe that two young man facing death around any corner would have these thoughts. And, so hard to conceive that a romantic, rather dramatic, slightly foolish young artist and the son of a great poet would speak in such terms. Go ahead and download this book and enjoy every word of it. I truly do not believe you will be dissapointed.

    Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with his whole life ahead of him. He has a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a young daughter he loves beyond measure.

    I really enjoyed this book. As usual Dick Hill was awesome. Greg Isles has the ability to make you really care about the characters in his books. The only thing missing was an epilogue. I wanted to know what happened to them all. But still a great listen.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"

    Overall

    I absolutely could not stop listening to this book. Dick Hill as the narrator was the icing on the cake. The combination was perfect. The book was far fetched yet chillingly realistic what more could you ask from fiction.Yep its fiction folks....if you want totally realistic read the paper there is enough out there to keep you happy. The characters were fun and I think I am in love with Nathan. Look out Jack Reacher you have competition. All I can say is. Bring on the next in the series I will be the first in line downloading it.

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    chigars4 says: "Best work yet!"
    "I think I might just be half in love with Jack"

    Gotta love a great book and a great character. I am not one of your jaded snooty listeners I just love a good yarn and anything Dick Hill reads comes to life before your very ears. I could listen to Jack Reacher novels every day and never get bored. Keep them coming.

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    Harlan Coben is a master story teller. I have listened to every one of his books from audible. Wether it is part of a series or stand alone like this one I have never been dissapointed. "Gone For Good" twists and it turns and actually stunned me at the end. Maybe I am gullible or maybe I just love a good story who knows. I don't think you will be dissapointed if you purchase this book.

    Detective Sergeant Michael McCabe moved from New York City to Portland, Maine, to escape a dark past: both the ex-wife who'd left him for an investment banker, and the tragic death of his brother, a hero cop gone bad. He sought to raise his young daughter away from the violence of the big city . . . so he's unprepared for the horrific killer he discovers, whose bloody trail may lead to Portland's social elite.

    Twist and turns to the very end. Couldn't stop listening yet didn't want it to end. Where has this author been?? Jonathan Davis as usual brings life to every novel he narrates. This newcomer is a rising star. Can't wait to listen to more.
