    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    This book was predictable. The main character was an airhead and selfish and just plain boring. There was just too much going on and too many loose ends not tied. The ending could have ended so much better.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Any additional comments?

    First let me state that I know that JM is definitely Harry Dresden. He is why I fell in love witth the series in the firstt place. It is always tricky when a new reader comes in for a new book that has been read uniquely and strongly by another from the beginning of a series.

    This book was read by John Glover and I believe he did a great job. His take on the characters was awesome. The voices was distinct for each character and gave each one personailitty and humour. It was annoying in the beginning because I was used to James reading but after accepting the fact its a new reader and after a few paragraphs and I was hooked once again into the book despite the narration change. I thiink John Glover's performance was spot on with Jim Butcher writtiings. And of course this is a Jim Butcher book so you already know how great this book going to be. If you are a die hard fan of this series as I am, you know how Harry is always getting into trouble and ready to hear more about his latest adventures regardless who reads it.

    Yes both narrators have their strengths and weakness, but for a subsititue for a great narrator as James Marsters, John Glover did a great job gets a thumbs up from me.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Overall

    This book has it all. Intrigue, drama, heros, heroines, sword fights, love, betrayal, spies, sex, buffoons, magic and so much more. And best of all a great narrator. Bravo to Roy Dotrice. He allows the characters to come alive and because there are so many characters he is able to give each one their own voice. A rare talent indeed! I got this book during the one credit special and wish the others in this series were for one credit too but this book is sooo worth the 2 credits that Audible charges.

    Conducting a strange and urgent experiment on the Artic ice field, a team of scientists has planted 60 powerful explosive charges that will detonate at midnight. But before they can withdraw to the safety of their base camp, a shattering tidal wave breaks loose the ice on which they are working. Now they are hopelessly marooned on an iceberg during a violent winter storm. The bombs beneath them are buried irretrievably deep...and ticking.

    Overall

    This was an ok book but it started out quite boring. Even thou at the beginning of the book it fast forwarded itself thru a lot facts and data, more could have been left out. This is not the best Dean Koontz book that I have read. It left a whole lot to be desired. There was just too much flashback of each and every character especially toward the end of the book which prolonged the ending by more painful and angonizing minutes. I had to fast forward a lot at the end because of endless flashbacks. But once at the end I was still let down. It could have been better. I give 3 stars for good effort.

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    This was a great book and wonderful to finally see Peabody lead an investigation. This was a great storyline to read to see how well Eve's aide has turned into a true Detective even thou she finds herself in a life batlle of the good cop vs bad cop. How things can go from very bad to down right insane.

    Once again this is an outstanding book by jd robb. I love this entire series and have alwasys been a true fan. I really love the fact that the auther choosed to keep the same narrator for all the in death series which makes it so much better to continue to follow the story line as the powerful, passionate couple of Roake and Eve progress onward. I recommend this book and the whole in death series!

    Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he’s sold his startup company to a giant Boston firm, where he’s now a senior director. With his dog, Monte, at his side, Charlie is treated like a VIP everywhere he goes. Then one day, everything in Charlie’s neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong. His prestigious job and his inventions are wrenched away from him. His family is targeted, and his former employers are dying gruesomely, picked off one by one. Every sign, every shred of evidence, points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer.

    This was a good read. It did start off very slow. A lot of details and spending a lot of time on too much mental stuff. But it all played together well and the ending was quite good. A very good twist that was surprising. The narrator did a very good job also.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends - until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

    This was a great book! Sherilyn has done it again! I love and enjoyed the humor and wit of all the characters especially of (believe it or not) Bubba. Could not put book down! Holter Graham should always read all of dark hunters books. He brings each character to life with their own quirks. Great Narrator!!!

    Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires. Yeah, just another day in her life.

    This book was the first one that I have ever listened to in this series and now I have to start at 1. I am hooked!!! Where is the unabridged version? This was too short but it was an excellent listen and the narrator was perfect.
