    After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents - until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. But when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

    I must say this is one of the best narrators I have heard. He does dialects extremely well. I also agree with another listener who pointed out that the woman, the main character, is very realistic. I also get tired of the whiney, tougher than nails, kick ass female that seems to pop up in a lot of books. No wonder most of these women can't keep their mates. This female, Emiline grows into her strength, little by little. If you like romance and werewolves, get this book. It's amazing. I loved it. Thank you audible listeners for recommending this one.

    Helene Wecker's dazzling debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures who appear mysteriously in 1899 New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a strange man who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York Harbor. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian Desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop.

    I could barely put this audio book down. I love Helene Wecker's writing and imagination. Wow! I believe she's right up there with Brian Sanderson and yes, MIchael J. Sullivan. Did I mention how much I loved this book? Yes, I guess I did. If you love fantasy and are looking for something different with a rich characters and a great storyline, this is it.

    When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport - twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia. Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone - a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable, and intensely passionate - and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else. However, Olivia is in for a surprise....

    Story

    It's not that the narrators were bad, it's just that the choices of whoever directed this audio book I beliee, made not so good production decisions. Imagine the voice of a young, early twenties character in the book sounding like an older, seasoned actor over fifty. It doesn't mean the narrator has to be old but at least they can sound younger. Also think of a book narrated in first person by each actor playing their role, male and female. Then when the narration turns to the woman's point of view, that same woman narrates the male character, you know the one in his early twenties who sounds over fifty, in a lower octive voice. If this sounds confusing, so was the narration and performance.

    A note to the author, please make sure you listen to who narrates your book. It truly makes a difference. Because of the confusing narration in two, make that three voices, I couldn't finish what was probably a good book. Maybe, I"ll read it, maybe.

But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    I absolutely love Michael J. Sullivan's writing. Tim Gerard Reynold's narration is perfect. He's is talented with the ability to make you hear each character's personality be them man or woman. I love the thieves and hope to hear another book from Michael J. Sullivan again. He is my favorite fantasy author. Thank you, Audible. I got the first sample of his writing through one of your Daily Deals and from there, kept buying.

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    I enjoyed this story. It gave me the opportunity to hear an author I've never heard before. Yes, I'm interested in hearing the rest of the story. The description describes it as blood and guts. This is not true in book one. There are no blood and guts ,just an introduction to characters and their dilemna. I say, try it, you'll really enjoy it.
