    So far, in this series, this book is the best one. I am looking forward to the next book. The characters are very life like, with their faults and all. This is a heartwarming story about moving on after losing your dreams and doing the best that you can.

    We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.

    This is the third book in a row, where the characters in a book just didn't excite me. I must be on a roll. I didn't care for the romance in this book either, well if you can call it that. There was more than one man involved with the heroine and they all seemed okay with it. I won't be continuing on with this series. I had hoped it would be funnier, but it wasn't. What the story had going for it was there was some action and a lot of Lore. Unfortunately the story seemed a bit choppy, this didn't bother me too bad if only I had actually cared for the characters I might have continue with the series. Narrator was good, I have enjoyed her work in the past.

    For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

    Story

    This book was soooooo sloowwwww. Between nothing happening and the narrator I did the head bob several times. The story was okay but I couldn't get sucked in and found myself pausing it often because my mind would wonder. The romance was sadly lacking passion and the book had no action, it was a boring book. I didn't get any sparks from the characters and could have cared less what happened to them. I also have a hard time believing the sex due to the heroine having uterine cancer. Oh and it mention she was dying almost every chapter. When I started this book, I did not expect the book to be set in 1899. I had assumed it was a modern day story. This wouldn't have bothered me if something had actually happened. Narrator sounded like an old smoker that did not have any inflection in her voice.

    It was okay for a second book, but I didn't quite like it as well as the first book. There was a little bit too much teenage angst for me. I didn't like the way the relationship went with Lela and Malaki, it eventually resolved itself, sorta. I don't mind teenage stories, but sometimes they are just a little to juvenile for me. I feel that if the author had not focused so much effort on the high school part of the book the story would have been much better. First book was way better and I suspect the third book will be too. I like the creativity with the different versions of hell and I probably will listen to the next book. Narrator is good.

    Story

    One of my favorite books as a teenager. Yes, Sara is a naïve girl, but she is so good natured and makes me laugh at her antics you gotta love her. Sometimes you don't always want to read the same type of character in books and Sara is different. To me this a warm hearted romance and if you are looking for a light adventure this could be for you. Of course this is the third book in the series so you may want to read the other two books first, but I think it can be read as a stand alone. Narrator is okay, I will admit she is not my favorite but she does a better job in this book than the last two book in the series.

    Story

    Andrea Nash's story is a great addition to Kate Daniel's series. I recommend reading Kate Daniel's series first, there is a lot of references from that book. This book is equally as good as Kate's story. I hope there are more side books with stories from other characters soon. But I am happy with Kate's. Andrea is a little more high maintenance and has to overcome herself a bit in this book. We do get to see more of her background and to figure out how she became who she is. Rafael is a pill at first, but he doesn't know what to do with a woman quite like Andrea. It was good to see all the other characters from another point of view; it makes the book all the more interesting. Narrator does a good job; the more I listen to her the better she is for the part.

    Miss Honaria Honeyford was sent to London to save the family fortune by hunting a wealthy husband - and being a loving (if not entirely dutiful) daughter, she obeyed. But if she was reluctantly willing to surrender her hand, this beautiful young lady who could ride, shoot, and argue with any man was not about to lose her head or heart to the dismal dandies of the Marriage Mart. First she met the arrogantly attractive Lord Alistair Stewart, who treated her infuriatingly like a little girl. And then she met the skillfully seductive Lord Channington, who treated her intoxicatingly like a desirable woman....

    Story

    Miss Honeyford was a quick and easy regency read, no sex for those who don't like it. It had potential while some parts were good, others bugged me. I did liked the tension and interactions that was between Lord Alistair and Honey, before they fell in love. While this book is not a laugh out loud kind of book, there were a couple of amusing parts. What bugged me was that Honey started out with a strong personality then basically became a regular debutant. She does eventually come back to herself, but with such a short book it didn't work as well. I felt like the main characters needed a little more time to fall in love. Honey and Alistair seemed to hate each other until they were in love, without much reasoning. I almost thought I missed a part when it happened. While this is a good book for a sale I wouldn't use a credit on it. Narrator was good.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Story

    This book was a selection for my book club. I have always wanted to read this book, so I was excited to have this book selected, I just wish it had lived up to the hype. I know this book is widely loved but it just wasn't for me. I liked the world that has been built in the book, unfortunately the story line was mostly boring. Frank Herbert is defiantly a pioneer for fantasy/sci-fi. I see his influence in many things, but having an idea and pulling it off are completely different things. I am a fan of fantasy and I know I am in the minority here but I couldn't get excited for this book once I started reading.

    It was a bit slow at first and it took me some time to get through it, although it does pick up slightly about 7 hours into the book. My biggest complaint was the beginning of chapters sometimes summarized the story so there was no surprises. It felt like reading pages from the back of the book, which annoys me. There was lots of build up for action but ultimately it was anticlimactic. There was a little too much politics, which may be great for some but I tended to zone out at those times. Sorry but I don't like politics, poetry, or drawn out epic stories that are snooze worthy. There needed to be a better balance for politics, action and character development.

    The characters are mostly unlikeable. Jessica did seem a bit self-righteous and I wasn't a fan of hers. Her character seemed to switch back and forth from strong willed to weakling. I could not see Paul as a great prophet. I'm still not sure what it is that bugs me about him, I just know I didn't like him. He was almost an anti-dooms day messiah not one who is supposed to save the world. To me the best character in the book was Paul's sister Alia, she had spunk. Unfortunately she was only in it the last two hours or so.

    I did enjoy the narrations, which to me helped keep me focused on the story. The back ground noise was subtle and added depth to the audio. I personally don't like dual or multiple narration, so I don't get why there is so many complaints about in for this audio. My only complaint would be that sometimes the voices would be out of character, like the narrator forgot to change their voices for a specific person.

    Anyway if you are a die-hard fantasy/sci-fi fan this book may be for you. I think the vast majority of fans for this book are those who read this book at a young age. As for me I won't be continuing on with the series. The buck stops here.

When the mortal Sophia - recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind - needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home.

    I'm a huge fan of the Scanguards series so I went ahead and gave this book a try. I did enjoy this book it is a nice piece of romantic fluff, although I like the other series better. I am also a fan of stories with the Greek mythology included, my favorite being Sherrilyn Kenyon for romance and Percy Jackson for kids. The story line wouldn't have been my first pick, but since it was Tina Folsom I gave it a try. With that in mind I wasn't a huge fan of Triton, he does improve immensely which is why I continued on with the story. Overall a 3.5 rating. I will probably read the remaining books eventually, but I might wait for a sale. Narrator is good, he has a nice sexy voice.

    An enjoyable romantic tale of time travel. I would have like to have seen more length to the story for I believe there was more to be told. I liked the characters and the world building was good for the length. The narrator does a great job reading. I did pick this up with the 25% off semiannual sale and it was worth the price.

    Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job. Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she's still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be - now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate's mate.

    Another great addition to the Kate Daniels series. I love Kate's smart ass, kick butt character and Curran's alpha nature. Life after mating isn't all chocolate and roses, sometimes you have to save the city in between. I appreciate that there is a good supernatural mystery going on in the story even if sometimes it was a bit confusing. I will say this isn't my favorite book in this series, but all are good and I plan on reading all the books in the series. It did throw me off for a sec when the audio stated that "this is the end of the cd." I imagine it was missed when editing the audio. Narrator was great and has a perfect tone for Kate's dry wit.
