    Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley.But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gil's All Fright Diner to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print edition but t he audio edition was pretty fantastic!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Duke. The Werewolf. He just was. Noble, fierce, passive, powerful, discerning, smart and yet just a country bumpkin (if I can use that word).


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Just finished Divine Misfortune! Fred is one of the greatest!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just "Duke and Earl."


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of cursing, but I do understand the nature of the setting of the novel. I wanted to listen to this with my children but too much cursing.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    What did you love best about Shattered?

    Written from three different view points. I love Owen Kennedy!!!! Ovenue Ka Nae Dee!! So phenomenally written interlude to the confrontation with Loki!! Every chapter is fulfilling, real, "awesome!!"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shattered?

    The last chapter with Granuiel where he says "Let him come!" Referring to Loki and preferring death over separation from Granuiel! A true hero. He lives, truly lives at that moment. . . (tears) Here he becomes the center of the universe for all, the piece that binds the whole puzzle, the glue between broken pages, solidifying his existence in the universe as the hope of all . . . a true hero.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Iron Druid!

    MOST DEFINITELY. . ..EXCEPT I HAVENT READ THE PRINT VERSION, BUT THE AUDIO PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP CHARACTER IDENTITY BY VOICE, ACCENTS, (IE RILEY AND DATU)!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of We’re Alive?

    I LISTENED TO ALL THREE (AND IMPATIENTLY WAITING FOR SERIES 4) BUT THE MOST MEMORABLE IS DATU'S CAPTURE IN THE STADIUM AND THE DEATH OF SAMANTHA. SHE PLAYS SUCH A SHORT ROLE, BUT IMMEDIATELY SHE CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE WHOLE BOOK!


    Have you listened to any of Blackstone Audiobooks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    THIS IS THE FIRST AND THIS ONE INSPIRED ME TO PURCHASE MORE DRAMATIZED!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    DON'T KNOW BUT SOMETHING ABOUT SAUL!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    SAUL IS STUBBORN, DOESN'T LISTEN, HEAD STRONG, YET HE IS A SUPER SOLDIER! I TOO SERVED OVERSEAS AND LOVE HIS CHARACTER! NOW ON THE BATTLEFIELD WITH A SOLDIER LIKE THAT I WOULD PROBABLY PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE, BUT HE GETS THE JOB DONE AND DOES NOT OVERTHINK IT! SKILLzzz!

But in her rise to power, she finds herself hunted by the brotherhood, and flees to a land where spells are warped by a fatal curse. It is a land that even Magisters fear.

    Would you listen to Wings of Wrath again? Why?

    Yes. Except, there were so many juxtaposing storylines that I was hoping to hear more of the main character development.


    What other book might you compare Wings of Wrath to and why?

    None. It has its own life unlike the other books I have listened to.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Elisabeth Rodgers?

    Yes. She is a good reader.


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

    For the most part, Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The recording of the chapters kept cutting short. Many of the chapters ended before the reader stopped reading causing the listener to not hear the final words of those chapters. That was unnerving!

    What did you like best about this story?

    That I did not like the main character! Its a good thing when the characters are either loved or hated. The writer has done their job! I hated the main character for being rebellious, whiny, foolish, and troublesome.


    What about Piper Goodeve’s performance did you like?

    Good job!


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

    Neither! No extreme reaction, except to the ending when the "judge" shows up! Sequel?

    Homicide Detective David Bagini awakens in a strange world only to discover that he is, in fact, the 42nd clone of the Bagini line. With no memories of why his Prime entered into a clone contract, he wants answers. The first problem is his Prime is dead and Bagini 42 is in charge of the investigation. The second problem is all the clues point at a clone from his line and they already know all his tricks. How can he solve his own murder when every suspect has his name and face?

    What did you love best about Prime Suspects?

    The concept alone. A clone trying to find the killer of its prime. Not to mention the subtle twist that could throw you off of the plot!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Number 11! He was interesting!


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    His voice. Rough. Like the voice of a 1980's private investigator. The Dick Tracy, Magnum P.I. feel to his voice!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Number 42's epiphany and transformation.

    In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible. They’re called "brilliants," and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in.

    In this second in a series, The Via Advent, Shawn Small's creative and unique retelling of the familiar story of the birth of Christ into our world captures anew the profound mystery of Christ's incarnation. The Via Advent is a celebration both of the birth of Christ and of those individuals whose faithfulness, patient supplication, and obedience to the high calling of God was so wonderfully and faithfully rewarded. Presented in the context of their history and in the fullness of their humanity, Shawn invites the reader to participate in the discovery of the Messiah through the lens of those whose lives intersected so dramatically with the great unveiling.

    Where does The Via Advent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far, I would say near the bottom, but every book I listened to so far has been PHENOMENAL! Via Crucis ranks at the top!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I like the concept of the Angel in Heaven getting ready to record the birth of Christ, but a lot of readers who are "religious" and not spiritual would have been confused by this notion. But, as a reader, we must also understand our author is catholic.


    Have you listened to any of Shawn Small’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Via Crucis!! Via Crucis cannot be compared to!


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

    Hmmmmmm. .. not sure.

    A Roman soldier. An anguished mother. A death-row prisoner. An unsuspecting pilgrim. A treacherous friend. Jesus touches each of these and many others seen and unseen on his agony-filled way to the cross. Combining sacred scripture, storytelling, and personal reflection, The Via Crucis draws readers into a heartfelt and inspiring contemplation of Jesus' sacrifice and his triumphant victory over death. Raw, vivid stories voiced by those present at Christ's trials and crucifixion capture the pain, power, and passion of the Savior's suffering on humanity's behalf.

    Yes! But have not read the print edition. I would assume the same except with the print, I can highlight!


    What other book might you compare The Via Crucis to and why?

    None. Not even the Via Advent. The crucis is phenomenal spiritual insight.


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

    He wrote it. So he read it how he heard it in his head. He brought to life his vision.


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

    Tears of joy. I played over and over to mark to memory these wonderful insights. Especially the insight about the three hours of darkness at the cross and all sins, past, present, and future blotting out the sun! Wow! Thank you Jesus!

    Teri and Phil had never needed their own personal god. But when Phil is passed up for a promotion - again - it's time to take matters into their own hands. And look online. Choosing a god isn't as simple as you would think. There are too many choices; and they often have very hefty prices for their eternal devotion: blood, money, sacrifices, and vows of chastity. But then they find Luka, raccoon god of prosperity. All he wants is a small cut of their good fortune. Oh - and to crash on their couch for a few days.

    The concept of the universe in this novel with gods living among mortals and it is a way of life. Didn't like gorgos defeating thor though! Lol!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Divine Misfortune?

    LOL!! The god of the wind sucking gorgos into a bag and kicking and stomping him! The god of deaths displeasure and the god of the wind retorting "What?!? It gets the job done!" Then the god of death joining him . .. . awesome.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Fred Berman is only matched by Chris Aiello! I now choose books not only by author but also by reader. these two are my favorites!


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

    I laughed hysterically for about 20 minutes at 1:00 am (ish). My wife woke up and looked at me but I couldn't stop laughing so I went downstairs to finish laughing. I wish there was possibly a drawing of lucky.
