    After the Iron Duke freed England from Horde control, he instantly became a national hero. Now Rhys Trahaearn has built a merchant empire on the power-and fear-of his name. And when a dead body is dropped from an airship onto his doorstep, bringing Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth into his dangerous world, he intends to make her his next possession. But when Mina uncovers the victim's identity, she stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens the lives of everyone in England.

    Story

    After reading the short story of “Here there be Monsters”, which is a prequel to this book, I was ready to consume all the steam punk that has been written in this series. I had never read steam punk before and didn’t have a clue what it means. So after looking it up it means in short using sci-fi technology, history, fantasy and combining them in a story. The story is a little confusing the first hour, but it prevailed and made a wonderfully fun adventure.

    Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.

    Story

    A typical Sandra Brown book, this mystery/romance was fairly good. If you’re a fan of SB you will like this book. My only complaint is that there is too much flashbacks in the story, which isn't my favorite style of writing. I would rather the character tell what happened than rehash it in flashbacks. Because of this I would give this book a 3.5 stars. There was not enough face time for the heroine and the hero, the back story was overwhelming for this book to really be enjoyable. The story does get better the second half of the book. My favorite book by Sandra Brown is "Envy." It was the first Sandra Brown book I read and I really enjoyed it. Narrator does a good job.

    Story

    The final book to the Hunger Games, I actually read this a while ago, just decided to listen to this series again. This is not my favorite book in the series, but at least it didn't bomb like the third book in the Divergent series. Katniss has a lot of PTSD in this book and while a bit annoying, it is good to see that real problems happen to Katniss. This one has some good parts to it, I really liked the Hanging Tree song (which Jennifer Lawrence butchered in the movie.) There is a version on You Tube that is really good. Unfortunately this book is a bit confusing when Katniss finally makes it to the Capital. This is a much darker book than the first two books. There are no fireworks at the end to celebrate their victory, there is too much loss and destruction for that. Only survival and endurance. I liked the narrator for this book.

A 26-year-old vixen with the intellect to match her beauty, Iphiginia descends on London society as the dazzling mistress of the missing Earl of Masters—another supposed victim of the blackmailer. But when the missing earl suddenly reappears at a ball, Iphiginia is caught in her own clever lie.

    Story

    If you have ever read an Amanda Quick book you know what you are getting into. She does romance, mystery, and quirky characters all in a regency setting. I actually prefer her older books over the newer books she has written. I did notice that there were pauses in between the chapters long enough I kept thinking my player shut itself off. Narrator does a good job, especially portraying individual characters. My only complaint is she sounds old when she reads the regular parts.

    Story

    3.5 stars overall. A fairly enjoyable book, I suspect as a girl I would have loved it. I picked this book up because I have enjoyed both the Dead Eye and the Supervillian Series by Jim Bernheimer, plus I like to read a good fantasy every once in a while. This book is from both Kayleigh's and Majherri's point of view. Majherri is one stubborn unicorn. Kayleigh is selected as a rider and then she goes through basic training with her unicorn. Since her unicorn has already been through this before, he gets up to trouble. I liked the characters but just barely, and I did see a lot of ideas that were in this book that have been done before. Which made me doubt if I would read the next book. Fortunately the last couple of hours in this book was full of action and magic, it started to get good and I will probably read the next book. Of course this book leaves you hanging, just like the end of TV season, trying to temp you to come back. Narrator is okay, she did have a bit of a monotone voice and a couple of character voices that were too screechy or just too high pitched.

    Another really good addition to the Edge series. Right off the bat I liked Audrey. She the type of character that has spunk and a great sense of humor, despite her having a horrible family and using her so much. I think that is one of the things I like most about Ilona Andrews is that there female heroines are all kick butt, smart ass gals, while still having some sensibility. They are women I really could like. Kalder was also fun, loyal and won't let anybody harm his family and get away with it. Super glad that Jack and George came back in the story, those are two characters that I would like to see more about. Plenty of action, fantasy, romance and humor to make this a nice rounded book. Narrator does a really good job as usual.

Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Story

    I enjoyed this book a lot. I will admit it isn't one of my favorites, but I will be continuing on with the next book. This is one of the better vampire series that I have read in a long time. The main characters defiantly have a good vibe going with each other. Cat was a bit immature, but you can see that she grows as the book goes on, and I like her even with her flaws. Bones is super sweet, but luckily has a filthy mouth to add humor to the story. Bones has a different sounding accent, he is British but more of a down by the docks low bred sound. Many reviewers have complained about it but I kind of liked it, although it took me a few to get used to it. I would classify this book more of a Sookie (fan of) type book versus Twilight (not a fan.) Narrator does an excellent job.

    At 17, Claire Trevelyan, daughter of Viscount St. Ives, was expected to do nothing more than pour an elegant cup of tea, sew a fine seam, and catch a rich husband. Unfortunately, Claire's talents lie not in the ballroom, but in the chemistry lab, where things have a regrettable habit of blowing up. When her father gambles the estate on the combustion engine and loses, Claire finds herself down and out on the mean streets of London. But being a young woman of resources and intellect, she turns fortune on its head. It's not long before a new leader rises in the underworld, known only as the Lady of Devices...

    Story

    While the story isn't bad and the characters being engaging it is only part of a book. This is one of those books that is only a part of a story and you have to purchase the rest to find out anything. I do like books that are a series but not at the expense of the story and you have to buy the next to complete a plot line. At which case the story lost a star for incompleteness. As a good clean steampunk story, this book would be it. It is geared more towards YA, so no sex (not really even a romance) and no bad language. I might be tempted to purchase the next in the series if there is a sale but I would not pay full price for part of a book. Narrator does an excellent job and is very clear and understandable.

    In 1914, the war which was to have been wrapped up by Christmas had - in reality - only just begun, as all sides entrenched themselves deeper into the Great War. Christmas Eve, 1914 follows one company of British officers as they rotate forward to spend their Christmas on the front lines, a mere 80 yards from the German guns. Upper- and working-class men and boys are thrown together into one trench and struggle to survive.

    Thanks Audible for the freebie. I passed this book forward for my father to listen to since he is a huge fan of war stories. Even after all the war stories my father put me through, this is still a new one for me. A very good dramatized production of Christmas Eve, 1914.

    In every generation, certain writers are chosen to be protectors of The Legendarium, a metaphysical library that exists at the nexus of the multiverse. Inside this library are doorways that lead to every world ever created in literature. There are forces of evil constantly at work to destroy the library and send the world back into an age of darkness. Now, in a time of growing illiteracy, two heroes are chosen to defend The Legendarium.

    Story

    Sorry I just couldn't get into it. I thought the concept would have made for a better story. I did not see the humor that everybody else did. The references to old literature was not clever or funny. After about an 1 hr 10 mins I was bored out of my mind with this book and gave up. The bickering between the nerdy professor and the slob of a writer also wasn't funny or clever. Glad I bought it on sale, so not worth more. Although I liked the sound of the narrators voice, it was too rumbly and blended together not good for audiobooks.
