    I actually read this book some time ago before I listened to the remaining series and loved the entire series. So far all have been one great adventure after another with just the right amount of romance included. Meljean Brooks will be an automatic purchase for me now. I even liked the narrator, the story sucked me in that I didn't even notice the pauses the other critic was complaining about. I recommend this series to those who love romance, fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure all wrapped up in one.

    When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

    Okay book, personally I like the Naked Werewolf series the best. This book seemed to have to many points of views from different characters. This made it hard to really connect with any one of them. Also the clues came to easy and seemed unrealistic where they were found. Plus it was easy to figure out the mystery behind the house. Even with the few problems the story was still an overall enjoyable book. It was basically a light easy to read romance. Narrator is awesome as usual, I really like Amanda Ronconi.

    In this brand-new Grimnoir Chronicles story written exclusively for Audible, it's 1937 - four years after the Grimnoir Society defeated the magical alien force known as The Power. "Heavy" Jake Sullivan is summoned by his oddest ally, Dr. Wells, to stop the bombing of a new ultra-luxury airship. Amid the glitz, the gambling, and the high-society types, Sullivan races time to hunt for the saboteur. But surrounded by a blimp-full of Germans, Russians, Imperium Iron Guard, and other magical enemies - where can he even begin?

    An enjoyable short story. It makes me want to go back and read the rest of the series again. Jake is recruited to find a saboteur for an elite airship. With is wit and dry humor this makes for a fun little story. There is new magic in this story, so it makes me hopeful there will be more for this series in the future. I recommend listening to the other books first, there is a lot of references to them. As usual the narrator rocks.

    Everybody says this series is perfect for boys between 8-12 years old. But I'm here to tell you that adult woman can like them too. I did start this series with my 10 year old but quickly grew tired of waiting for him and continued on listening to them by myself. I will be happy to go back and listen to them again, they were that much fun. I just love Stoak and Fishlegs they are always good for a laugh. I love the narrator, he makes these book that much more awesome.

    The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Wal-Mart and magic is a fairy tale—and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…Charlotte de Ney is as noble as they come, a blueblood straight out of the Weird. But even though she possesses rare magical healing abilities, her life has brought her nothing but pain.

    Story

    Another hit for the Edger's series. Like the last two books George and Jack stole the show, and now Sophie too. I would like to see all three have their own story as adults. Richard is different than you expect him to be, and in this instance that is a good thing. There were a few storyline discrepancy with Richard's back ground and a few of the other books, overall they were easy to ignore but still there. This may be the last book in the series, but it is left in a way that Ilona Andrews can easily decide to write more. I will admit that this book felt long, even though it wasn't any longer than the last two. I recommend the Kate Daniels series if you haven't read it yet. Narrator does an excellent job.

    Admittedly I'm just not into poetry, but it was free so I thought what the heck. I know I'm so refined, not. Now I can see if you like this type of writing this would really work for you, classic poems told by a narrator that hits the right peaks. As for me it passed the time, but I didn't see any big revelation. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

    Even D-list supervillains have to start somewhere. Follow Cal Stringel's misadventures as he climbs to the lowest levels of supervillany in the prequel to the smash hit, Confessions of a D-List Supervillain. Angry that he wouldn't be known as the engineer who made Ultraweapon's force blasters, Cal resigns to chase after a bigger, better paycheck. However, the Promethia Corporation isn't going to let him go that easily and sets out to make his life a living hell.

    I like how Cal thinks, he is devious and sarcastic, makes me laugh. While this book has funny parts the main emphasis is showing how Cal managed to have his life trashed so much that he became a D list supervillain. This book leaves you right where the Confessions of a D list Supervillain starts off. I had read Confessions quite some time ago and after listening to this book I went ahead and listened to it again. It was just as fun the second time around. If you’re a fan of the internet show of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along, you will like this. Narrator is perfect for the character Cal, shows his dry sense of humor.

    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    Story

    I like children's book, especially if it is done correctly. This started off good with a lot of world building, but nothing that really caught my attention. The longer I listened to it, the more I started to enjoy it. The second half was fun and adventurous. I laugh when they were negotiating with the Troll. Admittedly there was a few parts to the book that annoyed me a bit, such as Seth always disobey, it was so bad that you couldn't believe a word he said. I did like that he was willing to try everything whereas Kendra as scared of her own shadow. I will probably read the remaining books in the series, but I might wait for a sale. I recommend The Spiderwick Chronicles if you like this book. Narrator was okay, although he was mostly easy to listen to, his voice was a bit to whispery and childlike.

    A former smuggler and thief, Ariq--better known as the Kraken King--doesn't know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she's a spy or a pawn in someone else's game, Ariq isn't about to let her out of his sight until he finds out.

    Another hit for the Iron Seas series. As per the series there is lots of adventure, fantasy, and romance. Ariq and Zenobia make for a steamy couple. I love the steampunk aspect of this series, it is quite imaginative. I went back and reread the other four books in this series because it had been a while since I read them and I was glad I did. The first three books were by a different narrator than the last two. While I didn't mind Alison Larkin as the narrator, I did think that Faye Adele did a better job. Mind you that I don't usually get to annoyed by the narrator as long as the author rocks. I'm hoping there will be more to this series. Start with the prequel Here There Be Monsters if you are interested in this series.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    I liked this book better than the first book. I even like the narrator and her quirky accents. Bones and Cat have an electric relationship, they are perfect for each other. Cat has really come into her own since the last book. The way the author wrote this book it almost seemed like this was the first book. There is plenty of action and I like the new friends that Cat acquired. Jeanniene Frost really has a way of creating awkward situations and then finding ways to smooth it out when I thought it might be impossible. She often goes into directions with the story that I don't particular like and I wonder if she will be able to write her way out and be able to make me like it. Amazingly she somehow does. I will be continuing onto the next book soon.

    Another hit from Kresley Cole. Yes there is a triangle in this book, but in my opinion why does she have to choose. I certainly wouldn't want to, both Arik and Jack are something special and I wouldn't want to give up either one. I love the tarot card aspect of this series, I secretly think that Jack is the hidden card, and have my suspicions as to which one he is. To me Jack has aspects of John Conner from Terminator. This book went by so fast, that's usually a good sign of a great book. I recommended this series to many of my friends, I needed someone to talk to about it, badly. I can't wait until the next book comes out, I will defiantly snatch it up as soon as it comes out and anything else Kresley Cole comes up with. Narrator does a great job.
