    A tale of the distant future by the author of The Shape-Changer's Wife brings listeners to a world in which the fate of all life rests on the voice of an angel.

    Overall

    I loved this book and in fact the whole series, so much so that I listen to it often while waiting for my monthly credits to come. I find after listening to the whole series that I miss the characters. If you want to escape from reality for a bit this is the series to get. I wish Ms. Shinn would expand the series. I do find that the series jumps around a bit but if you get them all you can listen to them in the order of time in the story and not the order released. By this I mean that Angel Seeker which is her last book in the series actually takes place at the end of Gabriel's (Archangel) rein. I'm looking forward to Ms Shinn's other books!

    We’re the D’Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch with three sexy husbands. My sister Delilah is a two-faced werecat and Death Maiden. And me? I’m Menolly, a jian-tu turned vampire in love with a wildly hot werepuma. Unfortunately, life is about to get very, very nasty…

    What did you love best about Haunted Moon?

    Galenorn never fails to please in this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Smokey the Dragon. It is interesting how Galenorn has blended the human aspect with a mythical creature without losing the creature part. Even in his human form you can still see the dragon smoldering just beneath the surface.


    Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all the books in this series more than once! Ms. Campbell's performance just gets better as the series progresses.

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    Susan Ericksen makes the characters come alive! It is amazing how many voices she can do. No detail goes unnoticed by Susan Ericksen, right down to Roarke's accent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt that in the last two books Eve had become a little weaker than she was before. In this book she is back in full force. A force to be reckoned with!


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    I have to say I just love the voice of Roarke. If ever they put J. D. Robb's books into a movie or series I would have trouble hearing any voice but the one Ms. Ericksen has created!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I usually finish all of J. D. Robb's book in one, no more than two days. I constantly walk around all day with my Ipod on. Which causes me to constantly look for new authors!


    Any additional comments?

    The In Death books should really be listened to from the first on up in the series although you can follow along with any book you decide to listen to. You get a better idea of the characters' dynamics if you start with the first and work your way up. Wonderful series. J. D. Robb is a very fast writer compared to most but I wish she would write a little faster so I don't have to look for new authors.
    Thank you Ms. Robb/Roberts of the hours of pure entertainment you have given to the world of readers/listeners.

    Would you listen to The Iron Knight again? Why?

    I really can't wait for the new series to come out involving the brother! This is the last book in the series and I was so sad that it was over. I love the Young Adult books because it has much more story to it instead of the sex fillers. I also like that there is no cursing in them. When I tend to listen to something over and over (like bad words) I start using the words. Not even thinking about it. This book was the perfect ending to the series and I love the interview at the end between the reader and author. Very insightful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the Knight finally got what he wanted and wouldn't let anything stand in his way.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    MacLeod Andrews brings the characters alive! I used to read all the time but since my son introduced me to audible books I hardly ever pick up a tradition book. When I listen to these books it is like watching a scene in my head. The voices that MacLeod Andrews does is just perfect for each character. After the the other books the only character that was hard to get used to was the cat but the voice really was perfect for a cat LOL!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Iron will wins out!

    In a future world under attack from the undead, the powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing human liars and banishing the wicked dead.

    Would you try another book from Stacia Kane and/or Bahni Turpin?

    I think I am done with this author! If, in the sample, it was let known that the main character was a drug addict I would have never even entertained buying this book.


    Has Unholy Ghosts turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    amyjh98 says: "Not very exciting"
    "A must listen"
    Overall

    I almost did not get this book due to another review that said you must like dogs to enjoy the book. Very untrue! I am an avid Nora Roberts/JD Robb fan and have a hard time waiting for her books to be released. As long as you like her other mysteries you will love this one. It helps to like animals but it isn't a deal breaker. Ms. Roberts hit the target again and has not disappointed her fans. Waiting for her next book......

    Set in ninth-century England and Norway, Dream of Me tells the story of Wolf Hakonson, a fierce Norse chief who falls in love when he kidnaps the sister of his rival, Hawk, a prominent Saxon lord. Wolf marries the lovely Cymbra but their wedded bliss is short-lived. First the women of the settlement refuse to accept their Saxon mistress who turns out to have emphatic abilities, and then Wolf must face the wrath of his brother-in-law.

    Overall

    This was a great book! If you like Nora Roberts mystic books you will love this author. The narrator is one of the best I've listened to. I have listened to all of the books Ms Litton has on Audible and hope she does more soon. I am a very picky listener so it is hard to find things I like and narrators I can tolerate.

    When he was a kid singing in his church choir, Clay Aiken never dreamed of becoming a pop music star. His ambition was to be a teacher, maybe even a high school principal. But the music that was Clay's joy in life was destined to lead him to unexpected triumphs.

    Gerry says: "YES!"
    "Must read for every young person"
    Overall

    This book is very encouraging and uplifting. Mr Aiken is the best influence a young person can have. He is a very decent and moral person which in today's world is a very rare thing. This book is very entertaining and interesting. I hope at a future date Mr Aiken shares more of his writing ability.
