    Scott Crane abandoned his career as a professional poker player 20 years ago and hasn’t returned to Las Vegas, or held a hand of cards, in 10 years. But troubling nightmares about a strange poker game he once attended on a houseboat on Lake Mead are drawing him back to the magical city. For the mythic game he believed he won did not end that night in 1969—and the price of his winnings was his soul. Now, a pot far more strange and perilous than he ever could imagine depends on the turning of a card.

    It seems to be a decent story... the reader is not the best and that always makes it hard to get thru a book... The story has many twists and turns and not all of them come clear (at least to me)... very interesting take on cards and I would never have thought of it.. so very interesting wish the reader was better... decent book

    Half human and half Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful---and passionate---of the Elder Races.

    Story

    I am not a "romance" fan, I do enjoy fantasy though so I thought this book may be an OK one. for me it was far to "X" rated when it could have easily been "R" but that is my opinion about all romances so I did not hold it against the book. Personally I think there was to much description here (in the sex arena) and not enough elsewhere (in all other arenas).

    I liked the characters and the interaction with them was good at times and predictable more.

    the Premise for the story is WONDERFUL... I think it held sooooo much promise... I do not think the promise got delivered at least not in full... I really enjoy getting lost in a story... this one doesn't give you time... the writer goes from 0 to 60 in no time flat... it didn't give me any time to enjoy the ride..."easing" into something is apparently not this writers style... it is to much like "DAMN THE TORPEDOES---" you know the rest... just zip here zip there...

    the last 5-10 chapters I knew exactly what was going to happen.. and it did... The story line was really promising... but I just don't think it delivered what it promised!

    The reader was good, not the best but certainly not the worst I have ever heard... but for this story you needed to have 2 readers, a man and a woman... the girl trying to do this particular male... really didn't get it for me... and I do not believe any woman could have. This man's voice should be a very deep baritone... just for what and who he is. (of course that is not the writers fault... )

    All in All... a FANTASTIC idea... Unrealized for me... a GREAT story line... that never really gets found all the way.... FAST AND FURIOUS ... when it should have stopped and smelled the roses a little bit.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    I think George kinda gave up... he is making money elsewhere and he deserted this story... I am not sure I even care when the next book comes out!!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Overall

    I am not into romance novels at all, and so with this book I had a few eye rolls and hurumphs but all in all the story is solid, I like the premise and yes at times it goes a bit to slow and at other times zooms forward. I am not into the whole vampire craze but in this particular book it works... at least in my opinion. The romance wasn't really over the top, but I hate when writers make woman out to be devoted dogs and there were at least 2 spots that my eye rolls were because of that...
    All in all I liked it and will listen to the next installment... so if the writer is reading this... GET BUSY MISSY!!! (I'm pretty old so I say that confidently...LOL)

    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    I had never heard of this trilogy, but I like it so far. The reader is really bad. Her inflection is enough to drive you batty, but the book itself is REALLY GOOD.
    I hope that they put the rest of these books on audible ... WITH A DIFFERENT READER!!!!!!!

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    EXTREMELY 'good' book does not come close to HOW 'good' this book is...great doesn't work either, so, suffice it to say...Its IS worth your time!!!!!
    GIVE A LISTEN, PICK IT UP AND READ IT... Join the crowd!!!!!!
    The Reader is Fantastic and the story leaves you wanting MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!
