    Ethan Wate has spent most of his life longing to escape the stiflingly small Southern town of Gatlin. He never thought he would meet the girl of his dreams, Lena Duchannes, who unveiled a secretive, powerful, and cursed side of Gatlin, hidden in plain sight. And he never could have expected that he would be forced to leave behind everyone and everything he cares about. So when Ethan awakes after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, he has only one goal: to find a way to return to Lena and the ones he loves.

    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Redemption the most enjoyable?

    Great story, well written.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Kevin T. Collins was my favorite reader. I was used to all the voices he did in the series and didn't like the change.


    Any additional comments?

    So sad this is the last book. I wish she would do a spin off with Link.

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

  • Sucking in San Francisco: Lily Goodwill's Story, Volume 1

    Working at a Suicide Prevention Center in San Francisco, Lily Goodwill thinks she's heard it all - then she gets a call from a man about to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. Something about the caller, maybe his yummy British accent or Lily's ability to understand his crushing ennui, makes her break all the rules and rush to meet him. After all, she is a vampire and if she can't talk him down she can glamour him. But things don't go according to plan.

    What did you love best about Sucking in San Francisco?

    I loved the story. It was interesting and a quick listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked her "family".


    Would you be willing to try another one of Valerie Gilbert’s performances?

    Maybe if she didn't whisper. It is so hard to hear on an audio book. I kept having to crank up the speakers only to be blown out of the car when she went back to normal.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, but either have Lilly stop talking to herself, or please ask the reader to speak up. Please put out part 2 soon!

    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    What did you love best about Shadow of Night?

    The main couple were great, but I really liked all the extras. After the story really got started the 25 hours was over in a flash.


    Any additional comments?

    Her books are very long and slow to start, but once she really starts going the story is great.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    As a mother of a teenager I was able to relate to her issues with Jamie.
