    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. 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 totally loved this book. This was the second series other than Outlander that I have listened to on audio. I am not sure if it is the characterization by Tavia Gilbert or the writing by Frost but as a team they are unstoppable. I have found new love. Cat is my kind of heroine. She is kick ass and bad tempered and doesn't let anything stand in her way. She takes charges, and shoots this s--tz and doesn't mind asking for forgiveness instead of permission from no one. Then Bones, my dearest sweet Bones. He is charming. He too being kick ass and alpha-type doesn't let up at all in his ruthlessness or persuasion to get exactly what he wants. Together they make a totally bad team. Although the book was average in length it was a very quick read. The chapters moved so freely that once I was at the end I was like noooooooo there has to be more. Some of the things I enjoyed about this pairing was how things were instantly attracted. While in some situation I do love the suddenness of how love falls upon the hero and heroine it would have been totally uncharacteristic to have befallen upon these two. Their first date is anything but romantic. I love how he is able to take control and be so demanding while still allowing her to be strong and fierce. He respects her strengths and loves her all the more for them. The side characters were also loveable in this one. Justine is my favorite. She is just type of person you love to hate. This was totally a loveable series with great characters and an even greater storyline. I see why the fan base for these guys is so huge. I am moving right along to book two.

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Although I must admit this wasn't my favorite book in the series but I enjoyed reading it. The narrator was wonderful and the story was endurable. By this time you are in such love with the characters and the stories that you still are not able to put it down.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    This was my very first audio book and to be honest I actually put off listening or reading this book due to length. At first I had thought about reading it leisurely however I am such an impatient reader that I didn't want to voluntary skip over the good parts so I then decided to listen to the book. OMG have I not ever made a better decision. I was going to write a review immediately following reading the book but I was too excited to stop and write so I decided to continue on and now that I am six books into the series. THIS IS MY FAVORITE. I am so hooked on Davina Porter she does an absolutely wonderful job playing James Fraser. I didn't think I would be able to really appreciate a male character narrated by a female narrator but boy was I wrong. This was a great first read and I definitely recommend it to the world.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

    If you could sum up Drums of Autumn in three words, what would they be?

    A great listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Drums of Autumn?

    When the miltia was camped out preparing to fight. The tension was so high you could literally feel it.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She is a great speaker and is able to change among characters brillantly.


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

    Yes, if possible.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this to everyone!
