  • First Meetings: In the Enderverse

    First Meetings is a collection of three novellas (plus the original "Ender's Game") that journey into the origins and the destiny of one Ender Wiggin.

    Erik K says: "Great for fans (please stop the music)"
    "Was good, but the music..."
    Overall

    ...in a few parts, the music was overpowering the voices, you could hardly hear the reader and when they spoke low, impossible. Who ever put this book and music to audible did a poor job.

    If you (audible.com) want better reviews on this one, redo the sound or take the music out.

    Other then that, I liked it. Gave an insight into a few areas I didn't know about. Such as where Jane came from, and Enders parents meeting.

    In wintry Wisconsin, occult bookseller - and witch - Garnet Lacey isn't immune to the cold. But even though her new vampire husband doesn't actually have a pulse, love will keep them warm - if the honeymoon doesn't drive them apart. Thanks to a vengeful frost demon, instead of a gothic honeymoon in Transylvania, Garnet and Sebastian are stuck in exotic Minneapolis, Minnesota. And with gods and goddesses running amok all over town, Garnet can't seem to find much quality time for her new hubby....

    Story

    ... The books take lean a bit to much to the political left in my view. Yes yes I know that's trivial but when there is so much mention about global warming, being a veggin, saving the planet from evil man kind it gets boring. I don't blame this on Amanda Ronconi because she's the only reason I bought the books, she's a great reader and I have many of the books she's narrated.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    I've listened to the entire series of Molly Harpers books on these characters and loved them all,
    I'm hoping for books on Zeb and his wife, or more about Jamie. I have not found any faults with her books so far.

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can't tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal-registration act, times haven't been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay for a bit, and let the mortals calm down. But that's when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black - and things really start getting ugly.

    Because the author, or who ever, changed the reader... I refuse to continue "listing" to any book who changes narrators in the middle of a series.

    I've given this book, number 5, low ratings simply because I'm not buying the rest. I'm sure its good, not heard it yet, but thats it.

    Not sure who changed it, the author or the reader, but I'm done with this series.

    Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals---and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan, are tense.

    I look forward to book 5, but that will be my last one in the series because I've gotten to like Cynthia Holloway narrating.

    To change a reader in any series is stupid, in my view, and makes it hard at least for me, to finish a series.

    The series so far is good. I'm on book 3, towards the end as of this review and getting ready to get book4.

    The reader is fine, to me she can change voice and pitch enough I know who's shes talking about. Story line is good, leaves you wondering what will happen next, least it does to me.

    Over all, yes, I'd recommend the books.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Like all of Molly's books, they are fantastic. This one could of been longer compared to others for the price. Amanda Ronconi again hits out of park. Amanda does a PERFECT job at narrating all of Molly's books and I hope she continues doing so.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.
