This book sucked me in right away and I was already preparing to buy the remaining books in the series from the first couple of hours. The story is about Mercy helping out the local Alpha when his daughter gets kidnapped. This is a clean cut book, no cursing or sex. I personally would have liked more romance in the story, but I have a feeling it may come later. I love Mercy and there is good development with all the characters. I didn't pay attention to the narrator until she started talking and I was happy. I think Lorelei King is awesome and have always enjoyed her work.
I read this book when I was a teen and I always thought it was one of Dean Koontz best books. Since this book was written quite a long time ago you can tell the story is dated written in the late 1980's, where there are no computer or cell phones. Still good after all this time, even if a story like this has been done many times by now. I would say this is one of Dean Koontz tamer books, not too much paranormal or sci-fi in the story. I have always been a fan of the narrator.
Pretty good for a short, short story. Is he schizo or is it real? Narrator sounds like Joe Pesci, which only adds to the crazy factor. For .36 cent it was a bargain.
Although it had some interesting points, and some good ideas to help with self-control I probably won't be using it much. I purchased this for my sister when it was on sale, since she has no self-control. I figured I would listen and see if it can give me pointers. I am basically happy with my life so that may be why I don't need willpower help. Only when it comes to buying audiobooks ha, ha. After three chapters, I really didn't want to finish it and that was after I only listened to one chapter a week. I'm not really into self-help books so take this review with a grain of salt. Every once in a while I get one such as Gretchen Rubin, Stephen Covey, and Dave Ramsey.
Thanks Audible for the freebie. Although sad the story is an okay listen. Story is from the grandfathers point of view after his daughter dies and he helps to raise his grandchildren. I don't usually go for the sob stories but I downloaded this story since it was free. This book takes you through day to day life without a love one. Easy to listen to, but I won't ever reread it.
Drizzt is having a hard time trying to acclimate above ground. Some of it is fun other times tragic. There are new friends and lots of enemies. This story has some of the formula characters such as humans, elves, dwarves but there are many new ones too. It does take a twist when you get dwarves that are dandies and not so much as miners. As usual with RA Salvatore he takes us on a vivid and grand adventure. Narrator is good.
What a hoot. If you like a good laugh and romp of a good time pick this book. I always love a main character who is a smart ass and can't always hold his tongue. I have read Jim Bermheimer Dead Eye series and really enjoyed them, so I figured I would try this story especially since it was on sale. This little story packs quite a punch for the short story. I wish there would be more books from this story line and think it would make a great series. Narrator did a good job, I just didn't like the narration change for the last 30 minutes of the book when it was from someone else's point of view. Also recommend Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia.
I have enjoyed Amanda Quick for some time now. I usually like her older work better and this book is one of her better attempts. If you have ever read Amanda Quick you know most of her books are similar to each other. This book has quirky characters, romance, some mystery, and of course a scandal. This is one of those books you read when you don't want anything too serious. Narrator isn't my favorite but she is better than a lot who try for Regency English accent.
The story line had potential, even if it took forever to get anywhere. The second half was way better than the first half. I debated giving up on the story, but I stuck in there and the story turned out to be okay. I couldn't get invested into the character, I knew some events that happened in her life but I felt like she was just going through the motions. I felt that the story was missing vital details such as when did the story take place, was this the future or an alternate time/place? If it was futuristic it should have explained how magic changed things to the current world better. I felt like the story line jump some and I was sitting there trying to figure out what was going on. The narrator sounded like she was forced to slow down and make her voice sultry/dangerous which was annoying. It didn't work out instead I was nodding off wishing I had a better book. In a way this book reminds me of Jennifer Estep Elemental Assassin series, so if you liked that one this series may be for you. The story was interesting enough that I will try the next book, especially since other reviewers say the series only gets better.
I hunger for more Tina Folsom books. I love the characters in her books. Tina Folsom manages to create a new crisis in her books and make it believable without over doing the story line. I did feel like Oliver and Ursula were more like children than adults which a little more off putting. It might have been because everyone was treating them like children. But overall I was very happy with this book. I'm curious to see how she will write Thomas's book. Not a whole lot of gay romance stories out there. Next I will try some of Tina Folsom's other series. Narrator was good.
Another great book for the Scanguards, although not my favorite of the series it is still very good. My favs are still Gabriel's Mate and Zane's Redemption. This series is very much a romance/vamp story so look somewhere else if you're looking for something hardcore fantasy. But if you like sexy men, smart women, and good sex this is your stop, start with Samson's Lovely Mortal. Narrator has changed from the first books, but I thought the new narrator did just as good of job as the last.
