    Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.

    What did you love best about Flash and Bones?

    I always really enjoy the forensics and science behind the discoveries, as well as the depth of description and background that Reichs provides.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathy Reichs before, how does this one compare?

    This book is a bit weaker than some of her other books; it felt a bit rushed somehow. However, it's still the same old Brennan that we love.


    Any additional comments?

    Some people have complained about the abundance of NASCAR, and I was concerned that it would be to much. I didn't have a problem with it, however, and I am not a fan of the sport. It is well explained and relevant to the story, so for me it just became part of the background.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    What did you love best about Hexed?

    I really liked that the story was original and diverse.


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

    Luke has a good voice, and it is easy to hear the differences in all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The book has been compared to the Dresden files, and that is a good comparison. At times, the main character ends up with more power than it seems he should have, so there is a bit of

    What did you love best about Rider: Spirals of Destiny: Book 1?

    I enjoyed the story line, the premise behind the plot.


    What didn’t you like about Christine Padovan’s performance?

    I didn't like the accents, the changes in voice, and the overall tone of the performance. The pacing was bad, and there were often pauses in the wrong places.
