    In the Micronesian Islands, a top secret, U.S. government- sponsored undersea lab conducting vital biomedical research on a rare jellyfish known as the Blue Medusa suddenly disappears. At the same time, off Bermuda, a bathysphere is attacked by an underwater vehicle and left helpless a half mile below the surface, its passengers -i ncluding Zavala - left to die. Only Kurt Austin's heroic measures save them, but, suspecting a connection, Austin puts the NUMA(r) team on the case.

    Overall

    As a long time fan of Clive Cussler, I eagerly await each new novel. When he was writing on his own sometimes it was a long wait. When Kemprecos signed on to write with Cussler, I was impressed with the joint writing style and the way the plot story lines came together.
    No matter who Clive Cussler writes with I look forward to each new novel, and I have never been disappointed. Scott Brick rules as the narrator, his is a voice easy to listen to, and his character styling is great.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story

    I've run across a couple of these books in the last little while. All bought on a whim, basically from the descriptions listed when you run your cursor over the picture.

    The descriptions are fine, but should be marked with "explicit sexual content."

    Truly I don't understand why the sexual act should be described with such graphic, mostly vulgar terminology. Silvia Day could certainly take a page from Nora Roberts books when she writes as J.D. Robb. In her novels the sex is hot and steamy without being described in such vulgar terms.

    The way Silvia writes about sex, you'd think that the only sex she has ever had, has been violent and brutal with no love involved, ever.

    The mind is a funny thing, and can experience the lushness of the sexual act without all the graphic details, just by being led down the proverbial garden path. Most of the time it's hotter to be led than be told in vulgar terms.

    The fact that this is the way that she writes has certainly put me off purchasing any more of her novels, and makes me want to stay with the authors that I know and enjoy. And that is a shame, because new authors deserve a chance to show their stuff just as the tried and true authors can and do.

    Audible, you should clearly mark any of this type of novel, so the listeners can make an informed choice as to whether they want to purchase these books or not.

    Story

    I have read Christine Feehan before, and I completely enjoyed her series about the seven sisters. And yes there were some sexy scenes in those books, but this particular book left much to be desired.
    The only thing this book has, is sex, lots of sex, and more lots of sex. If this book was made into a movie, it would be considered hard core pornography. The plot was non-existant and when mentioned it was only for a paragraph, and then it was back to the sex again.
    This book really turned me off, and the narrator didn't help matters either.
    Would I read any of the other books in this series? NO. Save your money, and your time.

    Story

    I don't know what Ms. Krentz was thinking when she put out this series of books. Did she need an extra few dollars?
    So far I've read 2 of the 4 books I bought on sale, and have been very disappointed with the plotline and the characters.
    The story drags and the characters are somewhat emotionless, definitely not up to Ms. Krentz's usual high standards. Makes me think that she had a ghost writer do them or that they were written back in the late 70's or early 80's. Even the office equipment is antiquated using an electric typewriter in Ms. Jones office.
    Save your money wait until these go on sale, or buy the paperbacks.

    Story

    As a long time reader of the "Jayne Castle" pen name of Ms. Krentz, this particular book has certainly left me wanting more.
    When I saw this set of 4 books on the Audible site, I was excited to make their purchase, expecting that a character with the last name Jones, would provide an entertaining read, as all of Ms. Krentz's other novels have.
    This story is lackluster, dragging at times, the romance almost non-existent.
    The narrator reads well, but can not seem to give her character's voices any depth or emotion.
    The only saving grace on the purchase of these books was that I got them on sale.

    I wish I had started reading Ms. Moning's Highland series first but I started with her Fae series and then came back to this one, and am I glad I did.

    Picture the smooth Scottish brogue of Sean Connery, add some magic, and then a time travelling hero/heroine. Picture being read to by Sean Connery, if that doesn't spike your heart, and make it race, then you must be on your last legs.

    Phil Gigante SHINES as the narrator and has that same smooth as a glass of good Scotch
    whiskey voice that just makes you want to listen forever.

    I hope that Ms Moning is dreaming up some more Highland Warriors and a few more Fae for a new series!!! I'll listen for sure.

    Nora Roberts really knows how to craft a smart thriller.

    Her character development in this book is well done. From an emotionally stunted and soon to be rebellious 16 year old to a smart savvy always watchful computer genius who can take down the bad guys with a few computer strokes.
    This one is one you can't stop listening to, so be prepared to lose some sleep with this one.

    The narrator is well chosen, her voice well modulated, and her vocal characterizations well done.

    I picked this book up on the recommendation of James Rollins. He mentioned that he had read this one and really liked it so I thought I'd give it a try.
    I was not disappointed. Talk about freezing you to your seat. I couldn't stop listening.
    This book has just the right amount of technology, "save our world" issues, and believeable characters, delivering a solid, fast paced, at times gruesome, story line.
    With our resources of fresh water dwindling rapidly, could the technology in this book provide a possible solution?
    If you like adventure, this is one for you!!!!

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Story

    I've been a big fan of Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Robb from the very first "In Death" novel.

    She's chosen over time to make Eve just a little more vulnerable, just a touch softer in her relationship with Rourke, and has added more more dimension to her characters in this novel.

    Eve and her partner Delia have grown and have become much more than just a working relationship.

    Another great novel in the best detective series out there. Can't wait for the next one.

    When are they going to make these novels into either a TV series or movies?

    If you have been struggling with weight loss issues and have tried every single diet known to man or woman, this book is for you.
    This is not a "DIET" diets don't work, and set you up for failure.
    This book is about making small changes, one step at a time, and as you make these small changes, you begin to "spark" other changes.
    I personally had given up, and taken a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) attitude. I was observing life from the sidelines, and after reading this book, so far I've lost 70 pounds in 14 months, and I am now enjoying participating in life.
    If I can do this, so can you.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Story

    Another great book in another great series.
    I was a little surprised by the use of a male narrator, with no female counterpart to give the story some flare.
    Great premise for the 3 male characters, somewhat along the lines of the 4 gal pals who ran the wedding business, only these guys run a construction company. Ryder sure could have used a little tweaking in his attitude, but that surly type does appeal to some women.
    Beckett is the type of guy that every girl longs to find, and Owen well he's just too busy managing everything else to have time to manage his own love life.
    I'm certainly looking forward to the next book in this series. Now that I've gotten used to the narrator, who by the way has a very nice voice, I hope they'll use him again next time around.
