    January 1937. Jack Miller has just about run out of options. His shoes have worn through, he can't afford to heat his rented room in Tooting, and he longs to use his training as an specialist wireless operator instead of working in his dead-end job. When he is given the chance to join an arctic expedition, as communications expert, by a group of elite Oxbridge graduates, he brushes off his apprehensions and convinces himself to join them.

    The entire story seemed as something of an intro to a great horror story. The narrator is what held my interest, as the story although short was a bit slow.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Desert Spear to be better than the print version?

    Not sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Desert Spear?

    There were many.


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

    Pete is a great narrator, however I listen versus read based on my schedule. What a bad narrator can do is dull my interest in a story. Pete was captivating!

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    What made the experience of listening to The Warded Man the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's skill in distinguishing each character and making their experiences memorable. As there are a lot characters and a lot going on with each one, making the story great because it isn't centered around just one hero.

    Horror novelist Michael Anthony decides to move his family from New York City to the small Missouri town where he was raised by his eccentric grandmother. Moving into the old house left to him in her will, the Anthonys find something already residing in the walls, under the floors, and in the darkest corners.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Disappointed. The ending seemed rushed and was too typical like a made for TV horror movie.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    His voice was a bit mechanical.


    Any additional comments?

    It starts off very interesting, but when the opportunity for true horror arrives the story rushes passed the moment. Until the rushed ending I did enjoy it.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What disappointed you about A Discovery of Witches?

    Narrator is one dimensional. No range, or depth to distinguish characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Deborah Harkness again?

    Nope.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Ikeda?

    Robin Miles, Peter Bradbury, Stephen King


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

    Maybe it was a good story, but the Narrator killed it.


    Any additional comments?

    I really regretted this purchase.
