    Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.

    This book was well worth the wait, I believe this book is one of her best. The narrators did a wonderful job! The story is one that draws you in and keeps you wanting more and the narrators make the characters come to life. It's the perfect combination! All I can say is I love this book and I'm glad I went with my instincts, I'm glad I didn't get discouraged by bad reviews. I'm happy I took a chance and spent the credit, it was well worth it!!!!
    Way to go Christine Feehan!!!!! I'll patiently wait for the next Dark Series Book.

    Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world's most powerful elite organizations - the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is 23 and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige's wildest antics can't hold a candle to those of her new charge - an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil.

    Would you try another book from Kelley Armstrong and/or Laural Merlington?

    I don't know? I've liked a couple of her books, but this book was such a huge disapointment that I don't know if I want to waste more time and energy on a bad book.


    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    She made the book boring.


    Any additional comments?

    You need a better narrator for your books.

    Being a psychic detective who can channel only negative emotions makes Kent Raef good at catching murderers, but bad at maintaining relationships. Then Lauren Wilcox arrives with a most intriguing case: her twin sister has been murdered and is communing with Lauren's spirit—and sharing her body. Raef's the only one who can track the killer and free the spirit. But soon he begins to wonder just which twin he wants to save…and why.

    Would you try another book from P.C. Cast and Gena Showalter and/or Isabelle Gordon and Liz Chastain ?

    I love Gena Showalter that's why I got this book, but I don't think this is one of Gena's or P.C. Cast's best work. I regret wasting a credit on such a terrible book.


    What could P.C. Cast and Gena Showalter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not sure??? Maybe hit the delete key and try to write it all over again.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Isabelle Gordon and Liz Chastain ?

    The narrators are not the problem, they are actually good. It's the story that is the problem here. It's boring, it's missing something... you are left with an empty feeling/wanting more from the story.


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

    not at all.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina - stripped of his precious timepiece andhis memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who could help him. In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

    Story

    I don't know what everyone is complaining about? We are well aware that these stories are not literary works of art. These are stories we listen to just for fun. Since I listen to these stories for "FUN" I say job well done! Very entertaining. I do like other narrators mu ch better, but this narrator didn't ruin the story for me.

    Kelly was damaged goods, both from the auto accident, and fiancé Derek’s reaction to her injuries. Would Derek want her, and if he didn’t, who would? It would be up to Dr. Mitchell Scott to deliver the ultimate, in The Christmas Gift.

    Story

    I have been an Audible member for a very long time. I have loved every single book I have purchased with a few exceptions, I'm very sad to say that this is one of those books I have hated.
    It was a combo thing... The book was terrible and the narrators were awful!!! I don't know what type of budget the narrators had, but I believe an eight year old could have done a better job reading the material. I have no words to explain how bad this book is, all I can say is... Trust me don't waste your credits on something this bad!!!!!
