    New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.

    Story

    The endings are still a little abrupt but they end with the fact that the story will pick up where it left off in the next book. It gets a little mushy silly in the love and sex department but it has a good story and I can't wait for the next one. I like the fact that it has so much humor and comradery.

    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

    OMG, this was such a good book. I was screaming at Brian to hurry up and do all this saving he needed to do. I couldn't stop listening, Phil Giganti you are the bomb, I love listening to your narrations. I knew that kid was going to get stabbed in the back by snake. Hope there is a book 2.

    Story

    The story is great, but killing off all of the good guys and their family wasn't cool. I know the bad guy will get his just like the inn keepers husband, and Vadeer, but to kill Griffin, I would have like to see him get his brother later in the next book. To get rid of the good characters in the first book makes the second book that's coming not as worth waiting for. So I hope the second book is just as good but maybe isn't so drawn out as this one was.

    The evil sorcerer Arunis is dead, yet the danger has not ended. For as he fell, beheaded by the young warrior-woman Thasha Isiq, Arunis summoned the Swarm of Night, a demonic entity that feasts on death and grows like a plague. If the Swarm is not destroyed, the world of Alifros will become a vast graveyard. Now Thasha and her comrades - the tarboy Pazel Pathkendle and the mysterious wizard Ramachni - begin a quest that seems all but impossible. Yet there is hope: One person has the power to stand against the Swarm: the great mage Erithusmé.

    I have listened to these books for hours, and they have kept my interest every second, the characters were great and the bad guys get killed. But the ending was the worst, I kept waiting for Thasha to show up and instead Pazel ends up in the sea with the fish chick!! What the hell!! His friends don't remember him, only the rat!! Wow I can't believe how disappointed I am. The narration was great, Michael Page is terrific, I buy almost everything he narrates.

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Not much different from Acheron the hours of beatings, sexual abuse and constant whining of no body loves me just had to be overlooked because the narration alone was worth it. I have been a fan of Kenyon for many years and am a loyal reader of the dark hunters. She can really write a book full of hate and betrayal.

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    Steven Pacey I could listen to you read for the rest of my life. The story was great, the narrating was even more so, Mr. Pacey made these books such a success. I have just started listening to epic scyfy books and everyone I have chosen has been great. So much more depth to these types of books and this one is top of my list. I hope to read and or listen to more from Joe.

    Aided by the powerful magic of Vagel, the evil Arch-Imager, the merciless armies are marching against the kingdom of Mordant. In its hour of greatest need, two unlikely champions emerge. One is Geraden, whose inability to master the simplest skills of Imagery has made him a laughingstock. The other is Terisa Morgan, transferred to Mordant from a Manhattan apartment by Geraden’s faulty magic. Together, Geraden and Terisa discover undreamed-of talents within themselves—talents that make them more than a match for any Imager... including Vagel himself. Unfortunately, those talents also mark them for death.

    Story

    I had bought the Mirror in Her Dreams so many years ago I can't remember, and it sat in my book case and I never read it. Once the books came out in audible I listen to them and kicked myself for not reading it way back when. I am a big fan of Stephen R. Donaldson and am very glad that I listened to this story. Very imaginative, like my review in the first book I would have like to see the two main characters have more fight in them. But in the end they kicked butt.

    I really wish they would hurry up and put Thomas Covenant first two adventures in Audible, I don't want to listen to the last three books until I can listen to them.

    Story

    The story is good, I'm still interested in finishing the first book and then the second, but the constanct changing of the narrator for the same character makes the listening not so fun. If it had been read by Stefan Rudnicki throughout the entire books I would have been much happier, or Scott Brick but not both and definately not the others. All in all I will finish them because I actually like the story.

    Story

    I have listened to every one of these in the series and loved everyone but this one. Since I am not a homosexual I'm sure that could be why. The black dagger brotherhood is about a league of superhuman vampires that kick demon butt, and find love along the way, no problem with that, but this book was nothing but two men having sex most of the time, or brooding about not being able to have sex with each other. I was glad when it was over, I hope that more books will come out so that I can listen to or read how the King kicks Scores butt and gets his kingdom on the right path. Plus we now have a new Vamp in the mix and he is falling for a human.

    J.R. I'm not going to give up on this series, but I do hope you don't write another one like this one.
