    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Scoundrels: Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    I don't know. Have not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Intricate plot.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    It felt like I was listening to a movie instead of a book narration. The different voices, the music and the sound effects added a lot of dimension to the story. It was a great experience!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane.

    What did you love best about Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet?

    There is no one thing to love best ... it is just all so fantastic. The protagonist is smart, sassy and sexy. The story is fast-paced and action-packed. The writing is smooth and witty. Darynda Jones is a master of her craft.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    The narration is very well done. Ms. King does a wonderful job of imbueing each of the characters she reads with their own personalities.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. Unfortunately I had to break it down into a two-day read.


    Any additional comments?

    If you've read the first three books in the series you won't be disappointed.

    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely recommended! The narrator did a commendable job adding different vocal nuances to the various characters, and the storyline is fantastic, especially if you have been following the entire series.
