    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Hugh Howey and/or Minnie Goode?

    I couldn't stand more than two hours, it was depressing and boring.


    What could Hugh Howey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    An explaination of the society up front instead of starting off with a confusing monologue from a suicidal guy.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He sounded as bored as I was.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not that I got to.


    Any additional comments?

    I am an avid fan of post-apopolytic stories but the lead guy was so depressing I wanted to end it for him to put me out of his misery.

    "I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. Now there are those among us who whisper I am more. And who can blame them? I've awakened the dazzling magic that's slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can't figure out why."

    Laura says: "Narrator is inconsistent."

    Story
    Would you listen to Seduced by Moonlight again? Why?

    No. The lady reading the book didn't manage the male voices very well, and when it came to sex scenes involving the smaller fae the voices she used were child-like and thus uber-creepy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Darkness. He is cool, calm and dangerous.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

    No, she has ruined all the Hamilton books.


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

    I love the book itself but could not make it through this performance.

  • Retribution: A Dark-Hunter Novel

    Story

    A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.

    Liz says: "Was left hanging ..."

    Story
    What disappointed you about Retribution?

    I have loved all of Sherilyn's books, but this one missed the mark. The lead woman kills a bunch of dark-hunters, is a total bad-ass, and then turns into a whiny little helpless girl when Sundown comes along? I want my ladies to have more fight, even when they are wrong. She should have tried to kill him more often and with more success. She should have left him hating himself for wanting her instead of her climbing into his lap with barely a whimper. This made this book too boring and sappy to finish.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will have to wait for the next book to see if it is better.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    I usuall like Mr. Graham, but not even he could save this book.


    What character would you cut from Retribution?

    I want fond of any of them. No spine or grit.
