They are the Lords of Deliverance, and they have the power to ward off Doomsday... or let it ride....

    Story

    Don't get me wrong, I liked the last book in Patricia Briggs' Mercy Series. It is just that for some reason or another, Mercy is always a little better when Adam and her are separated for some of the story. With this book you get it all. Mercy at her finest . Solving the most complex situations.
    My only complaint, is that I wish Adam and Mercy's sex scenes where a little more detailed. I would like to know what they were thinking. All and all great bool. Well worth the credit.

    The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia's savior doesn't turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.... When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen.

    Story

    I'm a fan of Jacquelyn Frank and of Xe Sands. So I'm a little disappointed that I couldn't get into Ms. Frank's latest Nightwalker branch-off series. I couldn't get over the whole one body, two souls concept.

    But from reading some of my fellow Audible Book Readers reviews. A lot of you like this series very much. I'll have to wait for the next book (which is already in print) and see if it is more appealing to me. You never know.

    I just wish she would write the 4th book in the Shadowdellers series. Now, that is a HOT & interesting series. One of my all time favorites.

    This best-selling thriller has captivated over 4.5 million readers of all ages; V.C. Andrews’ fans know her mixture of vivid characters and ominous moods is highly addictive. Flowers in the Attic is the first book in a gripping series featuring the Dollangagers - a family haunted by a remorseless, demonic history. This tale of obsession, also made into a haunting movie, has made V.C. Andrews’ name synonymous with the best in dark suspense.

    Story

    I have no idea, how at the age of 13, I managed to get my hands on this book. But I did, and I became completely obsessed with it.
    I read it so much, that my Mother took it away from me. She said "I acted different and strange" while I was reading it.

    She must not have read "Flowers" before me. Because there is NO WAY she would have allowed me anywhere near this book. What with the child abuse, the incestuous affair, the murdered child, not to mention, the poisoning of the three legged pet mouse . I wouldn't let my kids read it either.

    So, imagine my surprise to find "Flowers In The Attic" while checking out the New Release page on Audible. All those old, strange feelings came rushing back. So, of course, I bought the book, downloaded it, and began listening right there and then. All the while feeling the familiar naughtiness of my youth. Like sneaking to the candy store without telling anyone (which I did a lot) .

    What are my thoughts and reactions to "Flowers" after all the time that has passed? Well first, I can't believe how much I remember from the story. I can still picture the characters exactly how I saw them as my younger self. And second, I'm amazed how well this story, which was written in the late 70's, has held up to the test of time. It's still a sad and very interesting tale of love, loss, and the ultimate betrayal.

    Would I recommend it? Yes, it's credit worthy. Alyssa Bresnahan is an experienced and talented narrator. Which as fellow audiobook readers, we know, can make or break even the best written books out there.

    FYI : While listening to this book, I acted "different and strange ". But no one noticed. :)

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Story

    What can I say, this is one of the best series Audible has to offer. Each book is better than the last.
    The narration is PERFECT! Luke Daniel's performance, as the main character, Atticus, is right on. I swear, Author, Kevin Hearne and Mr. Daniels must be buddies. How else could Mr. Hearne 's wit, humor, and intensity be conveyed with such perfect pitch and play?

    I found myself lost in this book. Which is a very nice place to be. :)

    Worth the Credit? YES. I can not wait for the next book.

    HUMOUR. ACTION. DRUIDISM, AND SEXY.... EVERYTHING. What else can a girl ask for?!!!

    Magnus is a man of contradictions - a spiritual leader in a warrior's body. To him, laws are for enforcing and visions must be followed - even if that means freeing a beautiful slave and making her his reluctant handmaiden. Betrayed once before, Magnus can barely bring himself to trust another woman. Yet Daenaira's fiery innocence is drawing them both into a reckless inferno of desire. Daenaira grew up hearing tales of a fearsome priest who seemed more myth than reality. But Magnus is very real - every inch of him - and so is the treachery surrounding them.

    The Shadowdwellers Series by Jacquelyn Frank has everything an avid lover of paranormal romance could ask for.
    Ms. Frank paints a vivifying world of magic, wonder, and intrigue.
    What can I say, I love these books. I found the stories interesting, the sex scenes hot, and the narrator, Ms. Kirsten Potter, to be a great talent.

    I can recommend all three books in this series. I remain hopeful that a fourth book will be coming out in the future.

    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story

    Let me start by saying: This book is an emotional roller coaster. Through letters written to an unknown friend (literally), soon to be High School Freshman, Charlie is able to express, vent, and share his feelings and thoughts.

    Why do I think this book has the best narration of any other books that I have listened to before? It's simple, narrator, Noah Galvin, becomes Charlie. He managed to interpret Charlie's feelings with just the right change to his voice, with just the right amount of pause between words. What a talent he has.

    The material presented in this novel is sometimes hard to take. And I wouldn't recommend it to every reader. Even though the character's are under 18, they experience some very Adult Situations. Even though I'm an adult, I found myself having a difficult time dealing with emotions presented to me in this book.

    As a reader, I took a lot from this book. The music mentioned is phenomenal, the books Charlie's English teacher gives him to read, had me actually buying one or two of them, just to see what I was missing, and there is a poem that is so potent, it will be impossible to forget.
    I don't think this could have happened if Noah Galvin wasn't the narrator. I really don't. Hopefully, he will narrate more books in the future.

    Each book subject matter is different, which is refreshing, all the while he manages to convey a steady stream of self-deflecting observations. There is no way not to like this guy. Plus, you learn so much.

    Captured forever in a unique memoir, Frank Langella's myriad encounters with some of the past century's most famous human beings are profoundly affecting, funny, wicked, sometimes shocking, and utterly irresistible. With sharp wit and a perceptive eye, Mr. Langella takes us with him into the private worlds and privileged lives of movie stars, presidents, royalty, literary lions, the social elite, and the greats of the Broadway stage.

    Frank Langella's Name Dropping Memoir was Great!

    Yes, I am perfectly aware that all the persons mentioned in his book are dead (except one, the very rich, and recently in the news, Bunny) thus giving him the freedom to express his very detailed and mostly unflattering opinions of many of his past friends and fellow thespians.
    What can I say? I was completely HOOKED. Am I a little ashamed? Maybe. But, my fellow audio book listener, I dare you to buy this book and not become a fellow addict.
    IT'S ON! :)
