    With his auburn hair and lean build, Kierland Scott looks more man than lycan. But his wolf instincts are aroused by the gray-eyed Morgan Cantrell. Not because of her beauty, but because of her long-ago betrayal, a fateful choice that made their love impossible.

    Overall

    Awful! Both the story and reader. I love werewolf and vampire storis and enjoy a little romance added in to them. But, I could not even finish this book. This story is for the person who just wants back to back graphic sex scenes. You get about 2 minutes of story, then 10 minutes of sex. Again, 2 minutes of story and 10 minutes of sex just slightly different to the 20 times before. The sex really interferred with the story. It got to when I started hearing the all too predictable sex scene coming up, I found myself yelling, "Oh, come on! Not again!" I tried several times going back to the story, but it was the same thing. The reader's accents are horrific, too!!! I will never read another story by this author and will make sure I do not get any more books read by this reader.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    This is a good story, but I could not get past the reader. I did not even finish the audible version and went to strictly reading the story. My low rating is strictly due to the reader.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    I skipped through about the first 13 chapters and kept trying to hang in there, thinking others had thought it was a good book. There were some entertaining parts, but I regret having gotten this book. The reader is very good, but the story really dragged on and on for me.

    When a monk inadvertently discovers a lair of werewolf young, he unleashes what will become the Church’s most powerful and secret weapon. The werewolves are clandestinely raised by the Teutonic Order to serve as instruments of God against pagan unbelievers. Trained to slip into villages cloaked in human form, they are all but unstoppable. Only one, called Lilly, has cunningly fled her brutal master.

    Overall

    When this book was finished, I felt cheated. I didn't feel there was enough meat to the story. It was a bit strange in the beginning, but finally started rolling along. Then, all of a sudden, it was finished. I did enjoy seeing the female character grow and experience the world, but it wasn't enough for me. The reader was fair and I would have liked to hear more emotion from him with the characters.

    Overall

    Well, I must say that I warmed up to this story and even more to the reader. The reader does a great job at a southern drawl, which at first I could hardly tolerate. But, I got in to the character of Sookie and started enjoying the reader. The story is cute because of the Sookie character. At first I didn't think I would like the story and no way would go for the next one. But, after finishing, I am still a bit reserved, I think because of the strange relationship between a human and a vampire. I love vampire stories, but this one is very different. I'll try the next book and see....

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the USS Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians - a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik. The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle.

    Overall

    This is another great tale with Jane Yellowrock. The author creates a strong, female character, who also is vulnerable in some ways. There is enough intrique and action to keep you interested. The story is developed well. I enjoy the toughness and sometimes softness of the main character. I look forward to future stories with Jane Yellowrock.

    The dragon keepers and the fledgling dragons are forging a passage up the treacherous Rain Wild River. They are in search of the mythical Elderling city of Kelsingra and are accompanied by the liveship Tarman, its captain, Leftrin, and a group of hunters who must search the forests for game with which to keep the dragons fed. With them are Alise, who has escaped her cold marriage to the cruel libertine Hest Finbok in order to continue her study of dragons, and Hest's amanuensis, Bingtown dandy Sedric.

    "Dragon Haven"
    Overall

    This was a pretty good book and I found the characters were well developed. I wish the dragons were different, being a dragon lover. I was hoping the story was more about them, but it wasn't. It was a decent story and one I hope that will develop more about about the dragons in following books. The reader was good and was able to use different voices for different characters, which I like. The story did drag from time to time and I wish there was more action in it. If you have dragons in a story, there is usually action! Don't plan on too much with this story. The dragons were not very likeable at all, which disappointed me.

    Overall

    I kinda enjoyed the first book in this series and decided to try another one. I'm not sure if it was worth it or not. Some of it was fun, but I have trouble with the main character. I decided this is the last of the series I will read, since I just can't tolerate the story being wrapped around a spoiled brat. It's hard for me to believe the story when you have this loose cannon of a character that supposedly is extremely important, but who is allowed to misbehave and act so immature. If one grew up in this type of situation, I don't think they would turn out to be a flighty brat and I just can't listen to that character any more.

    Overall

    OK, I just didn't get it. Another book that I tried and tried to hang in there with. But, I grew so bored and lost. I finished it, but I now wish I hadn't wasted my time. The reader is excellent, as aways. Seeing that Simon Vance was the reader is what made me give this book a try. In quite a few instances, I found myself lost in the story and not following what was going on.
