    Story

    Story was not what I expected. More a political battle between two communes/ cult that supposedly have big clout over the world. The chemistry between the two started off hot but there was no other action. The sparks were there, but I like more action between the sheets. The writing was good the story original but too short, I believe the story could have been extended for a better book. I didn't realize it was the beginning of a series until after I had listened to it, so I will be getting the rest. Narration was good. Defiantly worth the price.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Story

    This story had me in tears within the first few minutes, but not to worry the story is not that sad. Great character build up, the friendship that grows between Scott and Maggie is heartwarming. I loved Maggie. I liked how the book is partly from Maggie's point of view. I have two dogs and in the spirit of this book I let them walk me one day instead of me walking them. We didn't get far, mostly circles. Of course my dogs are not trained to do anything but eat and poop. Although the mystery was good, the parts I was mostly into was the nature of the dog and her training. Narrator does an excellent job.

    Shades of Twilight is the story of Roanna Davenport, who grows up in a wealthy southern family but never quite fits in. She isn't pretty or popular, and she has a real talent for saying the wrong thing at precisely the wrong moment. She's in love with a distant cousin, Webb Tallant. But Webb marries their cousin Jessie, the bane of Roanna's life. When Jessie is found murdered, Webb is blamed for her death, even though there isn't enough evidence to charge him.

    Story

    I wasn't a fan of any of the characters. The family was a bunch of bullies. The heroine was a weak, annoyingly desperate fool, that had no personality. I don't understand why she never left her horrible life. Webb was a controlling, arrogant ass that I couldn't find any redeeming qualities. I don't understand why Jessie was the favorite she was so nasty, looks aren't everything. On top of all that the graphic incest was just too gross between the daughter and father, it almost made me turn off the audiobook. This wasn't the first book I have read by Linda Howard so I continued on hoping for it to improve, the second half was a bit better. Some of my favorite books by Linda Howard are Cover of Night, Mr. Perfect, Open Season and To Die For. I would recommend those books but not this book. I almost can't believe this is Linda Howard's writing. Narrator is really good unfortunately she didn't have much to work with.

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

    Story

    Overall I liked this book, but there was some inconsistency that were glaringly obvious that annoyed me a bit. Such as Jacobs age. First he's 2 century's, then 400 years, then 6 century's, and on the summary it says 700 years, only towards the end did he settle on 600 years. But despite stupid details like that I really did enjoy the story. I was surprised that this book was quite funny. There was some action but mostly this is a romance. I do like the world that Jacquelyn Franks has built and I think there is lots of possibility for the series. I will give the author the benefit of being a new author for all the holes in this story, such as Bella just up an leaving her life without a thought. I mean did she have a job, friends, sister, or even bills?

    I have decided that I'm not a huge fan of Xe Sands, I have listened to many things read by her before and have the belief that I would have enjoyed the book better if someone else had read it. I don't understand why editors pick women to narrate a male part, when the books point of view is mostly from the male, or vice versa. Although this book is from both Jacob and Bella's point of views. This story is good enough that even with the mediocre narrator I am going to listen to the next book.

    Scanguards bodyguard Cain struggles with amnesia, however, the curtain to his past finally begins to lift when a mysterious stranger appears, revealing that Cain was the victim of an assassination attempt. It turns out that not only is Cain a powerful vampire king, he's also engaged to Faye Duvall, the female vampire who's been haunting his dreams. When Faye thinks Cain is dead, she's devastated and can only keep going because she knows her clan needs her. Out of loyalty and love for her fellow vampires, she agrees to marry Abel, Cain's brother, and is shocked when Cain returns to reclaim his throne. Cain is determined to recapture the love he once shared with Faye. But the assassin won't give up and his ruthlessness knows no limits. Backed up by his loyal friends from Scanguards, Cain suddenly finds himself in a fight to the death and confronted with a choice: to either save his kingdom or his queen.

    Story

    Another successful book by Tina Folsom. We finally get to figure out who Cain is and it took a twist I wasn't expecting. I enjoyed the "fake it until you make it" method that Cain took until he regained his memory. Although the mystery part wasn't all that mysterious, because you already can figure out who the bad guy is, the romance was off the chart. As usual in this series we get to see a lot of the old cast in this book. My favorites in this series still are Gabriel's Mate, Zane's Redemption and Thomas's Choice. Narrator does a great job as usual. Other vampire authors I recommend are Kresley Cole, Thea Harrison, Molly Harper, Charlaine Harris, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    Story

    The first 45 minutes is just a list of the characters and a recap of events from the other books. So if you have been reading this series at all you won't need to read it if you don't want to.

    This series need to be a TV series. I think Jessica Alba would make a perfect Kate Daniels. There is a lot that happens in this book. This series is full of great characters, action, adventure, romance and a touch of crazy. Thank God there will be at least 3 more books to come. I miss Marigold the mule and am glad we have another the crazy donkey Cuddles to entertain us. Narrator does such a great job she is now Kate Daniels in my eyes.

    Magic Test is a short bonus story at the end that is all about Julie starting a new school. 1 hr 15 mins.

    There is so much fun and adventure in this series I can't wait to read more. If you are a fan of children's book such as Harry Potter or Percy Jackson then you should get this series to try out. Although this book is not as long or intricate it is still totally worth reading, also the stories are totally different. Do read How to Train your Dragon books in order for max enjoyment. David Tennant is an awesome narrator. He really makes this already great book, ten times better.

    A fun adventure for all ages. My family listened to this while on a trip and the driving time just flew by. Hiccup and Toothless are defiantly the underdogs and have lots of adversity to overcome. I just love Gobber the Belch, he cracks me up. Dog Breathe, Snot Lout, Fish Legs, Warty Hog what crazy names. The narration is super funny, I like how it explains the book at odd times. I think they could have cut down on the sound in between chapters, but this one was better than the first in that respect. The narrator does an excellent job.

As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel's farm one autumn evening, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, an apparition said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper snuffed out by a stray cannonball.

    I have always like the story for the Headless Horseman. With this book being written quite some time ago it does show the type of writing for the time. Very descriptive and without much dialog, truthfully my least kind of writing. With it being so short it was a nice break from the norm. Narrator has British accent. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

    Story

    Don't read this book if language, talk of rape, torture or killing bothers you, it is very graphic. The content comes directly from serial killers and no punches are held back. Even I had a hard time with it and thought TMI was added. With that said the story was so engrossing. What does it say about me, when I have a fascination with serial killers. I don't know, but thankfully it is only a passing interest. The author mentions serial killers that I had not heard of both past and present ones. I happened to look the names up to find out what they had done. As morbid as it is, it was also fascinating. As for the story about Tony's tragedy it is amazing how people are able to overcome life, this part of the book was an emotional roller coaster. Narrator is a little monotone, but as you continue on with the story he really fits the part.

    Amanda Quick's books are all about the headstrong heroine and the dark, brooding hero although this one is a bit overbearing. There is always a mystery and a villain in the background. There is a formula that Amanda Quick uses when writing that is very predictable. What I like about these book is that they are good for a simple read and a quick getaway from everyday life. Narrator is okay, a little on the breathy side.
