    With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now they're causing him all kinds of trouble. Like, he'll blink and suddenly he's a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he'll change the future. Or he'll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she's going to die. He's so over it. All he wants is peace. And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, as long as he's near her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite.

    What did you love best about Intertwined?

    I liked the characters, (there's a lot of them). The interaction of the various personalities and the new way of approaching the paranormal is interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters in Aden's head.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Absolutely! I think action is difficult to perform but she was hard to listen to because she over-emphasized. It was like listening to a 7 year old tell you about a fight scene in a movie.POW! BAM!


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

    I hate this kind of question


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good novel and I bought the next book in the story to read. This is a book you should read, not listen to.

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I like this series but would recommend reading as opposed to listening to the book. If the narrator is the same for the next book I will not buy it.


    What other book might you compare Shadow Spell to and why?

    Nora Roberts has other books she's written about Ireland. She does a good job capturing the culture.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Smyth’s performances?

    No way.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.

    What made the experience of listening to Blood Oath the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is very good at the various character's voices.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I purchase audio books so that I can do other things at the same time that I listen, (pay bills, check email, do things around the house). I got nothing done, I just listened to the book.


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

    No I haven't but I am impressed with him.


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

    When Cane fought the order to drink human blood. It was sad.

    What did you love best about Dead In the Family?

    The narrator's voice captured Sookie Stackhouse perfectly. This is a great series and I've read some it and listened to some of it. I actually think I'll listen to the rest of the series because it's just such a good listen. I've already bought the next one.


    What other book might you compare Dead In the Family to and why?

    My mind's a blank on this question


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

    She takes a good book and makes it excellent. She doesn't over-due the southern voice, she keeps it soft and knows how to nuance the words.


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

    "Moved" isn't a word I'd use for this kind of book.

    Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the French Pyrenees; the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, her version of the life of Jesus and the events of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of L'Attendu, the Expected One.

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from The Expected One?

    I don't know, couldn't relate to any of them


    Any additional comments?

    Boring and irritating

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness to be better than the print version?

    I love to read but I listen to audio books while I'm busy with other things. I don't know if it's better than the written book but it was certainly as good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I couldn't stop listening to this book even when I wasn't busy with other things.


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

    No


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

    No

    Good book, good performance... Get it!
