    When I purchased this book it was on sale and I didn't realize it was a series. After listening to it I became a Phillips fan and starting to listen to her other books. She has a way of making her characters real.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Story

    This book is the most boring and trite of stories. There was no romance and no agenda for the heroine to go home only lots of attempted rapes and stories of rape. I would have even been happy if it was a bodice ripper book but by the time the bodice ripping part actually came it was very disappointing. Then there was lots and lots of crappy sex scenes including abuse not romance/love. I don't get all the great reviews. This book is defiantly not a five star review with 8 additional books later worthy kind of book as many of the other reviewer seem to think.

    There is a lot to be said about the details in books. This book is trying to be realistic by showing how awful life is back in the day, but the details are only good until the author decides to leave out obvious ones or change them to fit her story. It's amazing that everything that is written back in Scotland was in English. Claire seemed to be able to read everything and nobody commented on the fact that first she can read and second it is all in English. She also acts ignorant of medical procedures that were used back in the day, but claimed she is a nurse. Even I know about most of it.

    Not to mention the heroine doesn't act like she has any desire to return home she goes about it only as an afterthought. I also don't get why she said she was a widow and that she believed it. She was supposedly in love with her husband Frank and instead of trying to get back, she settles in and tells everybody she's a widow. Now I understand she is in a difficult situation but back in those days it would have been safer to say you were married. This made it convenient for the story line that she wasn't married but to me it was a big fat lie. Another thing that bugs me is that she doesn't have any problems with the way life was lived, I would think that since she came from the future she would have had difficulties adjusting to it. Claire didn't act like she actual had any real emotion over the events that were happening to her.

    These are just a few of the problems I had with this book, there were more. Narrator was okay, maybe a bit boring. She did mispronounce several words which was annoying. I defiantly will not be continuing with this series.

    This series is like a song that you like really well the first couple of times you hear it, but it gets old fast the more you hear. Don't get me wrong I like this series, but maybe it should have ended a book back or so. I probably will continue to read as long as I put some time in between listening to the books in this series and I get it on sale. Overall I would give this book a 3.5 rating. I'm not a huge fan of the narrator, she is just too slow and I ended up listening to this on fast speed.

    Homicide Detective David Bagini awakens in a strange world only to discover that he is, in fact, the 42nd clone of the Bagini line. With no memories of why his Prime entered into a clone contract, he wants answers. The first problem is his Prime is dead and Bagini 42 is in charge of the investigation. The second problem is all the clues point at a clone from his line and they already know all his tricks. How can he solve his own murder when every suspect has his name and face?

    I really liked Confessions of a D-list Super Villain and the Dead Eye series so I went ahead and took a chance on this book. While good, detective stories are just not my thing. Mostly this is about coming to term with being a clone. I was hoping it would be funnier, in which case I wouldn't have cared what the main story line was about. There is no humor in this book. Only me, myself, 42 and a bunch of other clones that have vastly different personalities. Narrator was a little dry, but overall he was okay.

    While this book is slightly funny it tends to jump from characters to character without the benefit of letting us know it is from a different point of view. There was also a lot of out of the blue additions to the story without much explanation. This might be due to the transition to audiobook. I like to get short stories sometimes to break up the long audiobooks. While this book did the job it was only a filler book and I see there is more to this series, I won't be getting them. Narrator is slightly high pitched.

    When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is way better than the first book and I'm glad I gave this series another chance. I bet there was a new editor because this book flowed much better than the first. I only liked the first book okay, which got better toward the end which was why I gave this series another chance. Magic Burns on the other hand was good and makes me want to read more of Kate Daniels. I like a strong heroine who doesn't think she is the best at what she does so when she gets hurt it isn't shocking and annoying. I also like to see characters who care about others. Kate taught Bran how to be a real hero, which was cool in my book. I'm also intrigued with how the relationship with Kate and Curran might develop. This book had me laughing out loud several times. Narrator was okay, she was a little over dramatic at the end.

    I recommend reading this book after Lothaire but before Macrieve. Yes it is an spin off of IAD series but really it is a continuation of the series, just with different characters and location. Which to be truthful that is how all the books are in this series. For me Shadow's Claim was another wonderful addition to the series and Kresley Cole cannot write fast enough to satisfy me. This wasn't my favorite book from KC, but I still gobbled it up. My only complaint was that Bettina drove me crazy with her obsession of her childhood friend. Who in my opinion wasn't that great of a friend. Luckily like me she couldn't resist a sexy vamp who would do anything for her. Robert Petkoff was drool worthy as usual.

    I just recently started and finished this series and I loved it. I read the books back to back which I hardly ever do because I tend to get bored of a series if I do that, well not with this one. Each story is awesome they have different characters, different adventures, different trials and tribulations to conquer. Lanthe and Thronos story is another incredible addition and I never want this series to end. Not to mention the hot romance going on that is only emphasized by the one and only sexy reading of Robert Petkoff. I recommend reading Shadow's Claim before this book since it has references in Dark Skye from Shadow's Claim.

    My son and I love the movie so much that we decided to get the book and give it a try on our car trip. First off the book is nothing like the movie. Second off it is still really good. This book was hilarious with just the right amount of goofy. I loved all the names and the description of events, driving by us in the car all you would see is a bunch of crazy people laughing there fool heads off. I do still like the movie better only because I liked Toothless's character better in the movie. I loved the narrator and I hope to see him do more audible works. The only thing I wish wasn't in the book was the music and growling noises that were added in between chapters.

His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    I tried to like this series, but I just couldn't it was only a mediocre story. I just don't understand how this series gets so many 5 star reviews. I am not a fan of Harry Dresden he is such a whining bore and always saying one thing and doing something different, usually something dumb. I'm sick of his complaining that he has no money, most people get another job that pays if they are going hungry. I'm also not a fan of Murphy she is over the top supposed bad ass, but instead it seems like she is throwing a tantrum instead. What this book does have going for it is that there is lots of supernatural lore that has an interesting take on it. There is lots of action and mayhem that also improve the book some. Unfortunately the narrator is sleep inducing with a touch of a saliva swallowing problem. I solved that problem by putting on the fast speed for listening. I gave Storm Front the first book a better review thinking I would like this book better, but this book just make me like the first book less but admittedly it wasn't terrible. Although I think I will skip the rest of this series.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    Another enjoyable listen. I'm glad to see that Molly Harper finally came out with another werewolf story. I like this series better than the Nice Girl series. As usually Molly Harper brings lots of humor to her stories. Being more of an Alpha female myself, I have a hard time understanding why women let this happen to them. I know if some man abused me like that, I would find a way to hide the body. I realize I'm not as sensitive to this subject matter as I should be, which could be why I tend to identify with with Maggie the most. Amanda Ronconi is an excellent narrator.
