    Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt.

    Story

    This is a story of redemption. You work out the past with Tony/Anthony through this book. The reader does a great job! All the different voices and attitudes. If you read/listened to the shack & enjoyed it then you will also enjoy this one. The emotion is so raw that I ened up wiping tears away at times. And I don't cry a lot ever, about anything. Not as sad as the Shack because it's not about a kidnapped, never found lil girl. But just as powerful in so many ways.

    I've read this and The Shack as well. I've bought extra copies just to give away. I buy audio books so my husband can enjoy the same books on trips. However, I find my self listen to books now more than music. Man I am getting old. If you read to escape you can listen to escape as well. We listen to audible books on our boat as we fish. It gives us other things to talk aboutthan our mundane ins & outs of each day. It's omething we can do together or apartand still have a common bond, topic, interest.

    These books are worth your money. They may even change your life, if you let them.

    When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

    I truly adore anything by Molly Harper. Seriously, what's not to love? This is another who-dun-it w/mystery, solid characters, a great story build. It'll keep you guessing. If you're into the serious mysteries than this may not be for you. This is a fun read, gal pals, wealthy friends & a past murder or was it? It's spooky but won't keep you up at night. I preordered this & will preorder anything by Molly.

    Between the author & narrator you can't go wrong.

    "Mountain Man" Augustus Berry is a survivor in undead suburbia. He scavenges what he can from what's left over. He is very careful in what he does and where he goes, taking no chances, no unnecessary risks, and weighing every choice...until he decides to visit the hospital at the edge of town, and experiences terror the likes he's never encountered before.

    Story

    If you like the concept of The Walking Dead you'll enjoy this book. Lots of funny toilet paper references. I say TWD concept because, at least in this short story, he's the only survivor we meet, aside from Alice (ahhh Alice). So while there may be others this is not a group of people surviving together. So it's completely one sided.

    Narration is perfect.

    Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories told from Tobias' point of view. Listeners first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Listeners will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection.

    Story

    I love the Divergent trilogy and this ad on book is no different. Thankfully if you listened to the series then you'll be pleased to know they kept the same narrator-yeah! There are a few discrepancies in each story. Obviously the same author wrote this, I know. I'm just unsure why Four would've done/said a few things written. Also some time lines seem off. But I enjoyed it.

    What happens when The Firm meets Anita Blake? You get the Halls of Power - our modern world, but twisted. Law, finance, the military, and politics are under the sway of long-lived vampires, werewolves, and the elven Alfar. Humans make the best of rule by “the Spooks”, and contend among themselves to affiliate with the powers-that-be, in order to avoid becoming their prey. Very loyal humans are rewarded with power over other women and men. Very lucky humans are selected to join the vampires.

    Great performance. As usual w/ Therese Plummer.
    I really enjoyed this story. It's fun. The concept of who can become a vampire grates on my nerves but I won't give it away. There's some great girl power moments midway through. Funny stuff. It's worth both your money and/or credit.

The immortal Magnus Bane is making the most of his time in the Roaring Twenties: He’s settled into New York society and is thriving among the fashionable jazz set. And there is nowhere better to see and be seen than the glamorous Hotel Dumort, a glittering new addition to the Manhattan landscape. But a different type of glamour may be at play…

    I enjoy any story about Magnus Bane.
    The narrator reads just fine but was a horrible Magnus Bane voice. Just sayin.

    I read this years ago. I was excited to get it on audio. Her other books were done well but this one is just, it sounds old. She did great, as always. But the sound is just, I can't put words to it other than it sounds old.

    Its a great book however, well worth your credit or cash.

    Its The Mortal Instruments book, of course it's awesome!

    The story is wrapped up well, some things I did not like but as a whole it was good. Not great, good. They've introduced a few characters that we will see down the road no doubt in a spin off of these books. Like how the Clockwork books were kinda of a prequel, these new characters will be the main characters of the books following Instruments.

    Looking forward to it Cassandra.
