    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

    In this 3rd installment of Dragonfury stories, Mac, is new to the dragonfuries. His story seems a little hollow...The 1st 2 stories with "B" & "Rycar" were unbelievable, but I felt I wanted to know more about MAC and his story...I do not regret spending my time to listen to it, and I am looking forward to the next stories of the other Dragon shifters - I just hope I have a chance to get to know them better...and when the story ends - it seems to end a little abrupt...Again, NOT a waste of my time, but I want more!!!

    Forced to ally, the world has gathered against the endless night. Numbering over a million souls, they are the survivors of nations. They have armed themselves with weapons and magic, and defend the strongest fortress every built. Led by a supreme strategic mind, the races have organized into battalions, designed unique tactics, and fortified their position beyond any conceivable need. But now their foe is at their gates, and to a man they cling to the same hope, to survive until Elseerian can defeat the source. The best they can last is Seven Days....

    Story

    Ben Hale did it again and even better with his 3rd book in The Chronicles of Lumineia. In this 3rd story about Lumineia and the The Second Draeken War, I have gotten to know some of the main Characters better like, Taryn, Liriana(Liri), Trin, Maemi(Mae)and Brayen, Jack & Ciara. I also get to meet some new ones and truly respect their willingness for sacrifice in order to save the RACE from becoming extinct. My favorites were Jack, Terran, & Leary. But each Character plays such an important part in helping. I Love all of the different races Ben has included in this story from the Dwarfs, Druids, Amazons, Dark Elves, and Giants. There is soooo much to take in with this story that I will want to listen to it again soon to just be able to sink it all in completely! This story brought out many emotions from happy, fear and sadness, but in the end I was THRILLED that I took the time to buy it from Audible.com because it was WELL worth my time!!!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    This series is one of my "TOP 3" favorite UF series EVER!!! the story continues to get better and better and the relationship with Aticus and his wolfhound and his new trainee to be a druid Granuale is top notch. When Cyottee comes back into Atticus's life it really stirs things up...The creatures and magic are very well described and feel like they are in the room with you...The morgan is as always Very important in the story...Hell is Gross But essential in the story and kinda sad...Love Kevin's work!!!

    Born of darkness, the ultimate army has been unleashed. The only hope lies in destroying the source - before all life is extinguished. Fate has chosen Elseerian for the impossible feat, but as he embarks on the harrowing journey the invasion must be delayed. With time as their only weapon against extinction, the elves issue a desperate call...for every race to ally. Facing annihilation, many will realize that survival lies in unity, courage sleeps in ordinary citizens, and average people can turn the tide of war. The Gathering has begun.

    Story

    Elseerian's develops even more in this 2nd book of the series. He is a very unlikely hero of this series, never wants to draw attention to himself and is now beginning to acknowledge he may have feelings for a fellow fighter. Ben Hale takes this story in a direction that gets the entire World ready for battle against a Very Evil Army threatening the extinction of all races. I personally LOVE the character Jack (a thief, but VERY needed in this fight) I love how Ben developed the "General" of the Army and how he comes to earn all of the races respect despite his age...and OH my, the Phoenix, is AMAZING=I am in love with this series-next to Kendall Grey's "Just Breathe" UF series and Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid" UF series - I have my top 3 UF series NOW!!!
    Warning though: I never like it when a main character is loss in any book and one of Fav's does loose his life - and I did cry....
    Listening to this book was like sitting down and watching a really good movie, thank you, Ben!!!

    The assassination of heroes was once a warning... for an invasion that nearly destroyed the world. Nations were slaughtered, cities were erased from existence, and defending armies were crushed into oblivion. In weeks, all life stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors... and rumors. As the centuries passed the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. Across the southern sea a gifted young man is completing his training.

    Story

    This is my 1st time listening/reading Ben Hale's work and I LOVED it!!! Very thorough and very captivating. I loved this 1st book getting to know the characters and not leaving me hanging too much at the end. It left me knowing there is more to come and that the characters have even more developing to do.
    I am an AVID fan of Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid" series...I did not think I would really want to read/listen to another "fantasy" type book of this sort, but after meeting Ben in Florida at Indie Book Fest and then deciding to give his books a try - I am definitely a FAN...
    GREAT story - interesting Characters and GREAT Villain...Perfect balance of human, magic & power...
    I plan to download the 2nd book right away!!!
    I look forward to finding out HOW it goes down...
    NOT a waste of time to check this one out...Worth every minute!!!

    Thank you Ben.

    Story VERY GOOD! and the Narrator was DEAD ON with the accents...he had to do many from male to female to scottish to british to back woods voice and it was extremely great to listen to someone that read with sooooo much emotion that maybe the characters did have per the author....Loved it and recommend all of Kresley Cole's stories...but this one was really different and good and NOT predictable...

    Not a bad story...I will continue to listen to Lynsay's Vamp stories because they are reliable in that I know I will overall enjoy the listen...good Narrators, decent story lines...but always a little preditable...but safe....meaning I know it won't be a wasted credit to use on one of her books...Usually aren't my favorite stories, but I enjoy them...

    The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy.… Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong. Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind. What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life....

    Anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon is NEVER a waste of time!

    All of her stories are different enought that you get succered in and see how different characters play into each others lives!

    I absolutely LOVE Nick Gautier in this book and can NEVER have enought of him in any of Kenyons stories!!!

    If you love Kenyon's stuff this story is different enough to be "fresh" material but with some of our favorite past characters!

    Love Stark - Love all the characters and how they are all playing into the story. It is amazing to me that after so many books the stories do NOT get tiring. The Author keeps us guessing and allows for some heartache but also for some forgivness and Love.

    I am looking forward to more stories about how the group carries on!
