    Mags was a Trainee in the Heraldic Collegium in Haven, Valdemar’s capital city. Though his background of poverty and abuse at Cole Pieters’ gem mine set him apart from most other trainees, nonetheless he had found his own group of friends. Bear, Lena, and Amily were all students whose situations in life set them apart from more usual Trainees. The four of them had found mutual support in their shared misfortunes, and together struggled to help one another find solutions to their individual problems.

    What did you love best about Changes: Collegium Chronicles, Book 3?

    I loved that there was a part 1 & 2


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mags grew and matured, but his core character stayed true and strong.


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

    Nothing. What he did was create wonderful voices for each character which made the stories an extremely pleasurable listen


    Any additional comments?

    I passed the series on to my mother (69yrs) and when at the library with my grand daughter (13yrs) checked out the 1st book in series (my recommendation). They both loved it as much as i (49yrs) did. Excellent story for bedtime with children.

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy. When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade - he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost.

    I waited and waited for this book to come out. It did not disappoint. This story has everything you want and some that drive you crazy. People probably thought I was crazy talking to myself when in reality I was talking to the characters in this story. I loved it and will listen again. Once again J R Ward has me in the waiting place for the next book.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I read so many negative reviews about the narrator that I almost didn't purchase this audiobook. Then I listened to the sample and realized that the reviews of Becca Battoe's childlike voice was utter hogwash. I am not finished with the first book, but will definitely get the next two.
    To everyone reading the reviews and not purchasing the book, listen to the sample and judge for yourself. This book read by this narrator is excellent.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    Forget the favorite performance she needs to change the voice of Bones. He sounds like a wimp which does not fit the character. His voice almost made me stop listening and purchase the book to read.


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

    Always

    As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

    All the Dark Series books have the same theme ie looking for lifemate. The claiming is so beautiful. Otherwise is the same story with different characters. Kind of like reading different versions of Cinderella. Either you like them or you don't.
