    You'll love this collection of three Anne Rice favorites at a bargain price. The Witching Hour: Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real a family of witches - a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being. Lasher: Now, Anne Rice brings us again - even more magically - into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The Witching Hour. Taltos: What can I confess? I'm Ashlar. I'm a Taltos.

    Nick has his driver's license and he's not afraid to use it. But turning 16 isn't what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he's been told will ultimately kill him. But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it.

    With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is free to roam across time and continents in pursuit of his insatiable desires. That is, until a curse strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible, a cruel fate for so irresistible a man.

    What did you love best about The Immortal Highlander?

    Adam Blacks appearance in the Highlander series gave him an uncaring attitude about everything. It was a delight to follow him develop feelings and fall in love with the only person that could see him and to be concerned about the human race if the barrier between the realms fell. This book is an excellent listen.


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His enthusiasm about what he was reading made me pay attention to every part of the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A lot of places in the book made me laugh out loud.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Star Trek the most enjoyable?

    This is the second part of the story Yesterday'Son in which Spock discovered he had a son in the past from the time he spent with zarabeth. Spock was using a disc that showed the past of the planet where his son is. That's a teaser you will have to buy the story to hear the rest. Believe me it is worth having.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zar was my favorite he developed into a responsible man


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he walked through the guardian and discovered he was bonded to his wife.

    What did you love best about Star Trek?

    What did you love best about Beyond the Highland Mist?

    This story is about love that was hard for the two lovers. It involves time travel which I love stories about and is why I bought the book. Once I got into the book it captured my attention and I had to listen to all of it. The story is about one of the lovers from modern day being thrown through time to find love in the past, that is all I am going to say about the story believe me it is worth having. I loved the fact that I could do everything I needed to do while I listened to it. The author is a best seller. This book is the first highland story in a series of highland stories. They all are worth having.

    That after all the twist and turns love won in the end,


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Hawk

    When they were on horseback together and she realized that she did love him and gave her heart to him

    This book is worth having and if you love it like I did buy all of them.
