    Would you listen to The Indigo Spell again? Why?

    I have listened to it more than once and got my husband listening to Bloodlines because he became curious why I am re-listening to this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Indigo Spell?

    Are you kidding me? The Dream scene. You know the one I am talking about if you have listened to the book...


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

    She has been great in the series.


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

    The time has come for one winner to be crowned. When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown - or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

    Where does The One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites, I listened to it all day at work and then went home and finished in 2 days.


    What other book might you compare The One to and why?

    The protagonist reminds me of Clary (Mortal Instruments) in the sense that she is a quiet girl who finds her voice when needed to protect others.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    She was great, you could tell who was speaking and you felt like you were inside the novel.


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

    All is fair in love and war...


    Any additional comments?

    I found that people either love or hate this series with no in between. I had a blast reading it because not everything you read has to change the world, sometimes you need a fairy-tail.

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Where does Endlessly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the series because it introduced some paranormal creatures that I had never heard about and a new perspective in the ones we are so used to, however I must say that I thought it would never end. It was dragging a bit. I wish we had learned more about the Queens but it was ok.

    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was wonderful and my husband was a bit jealous of Adrian.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has mystery, drama and lots of swooning moments.


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

    I hadn't been this pleased with a narrator ever since the Harry Potter series.

    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Lost Souls to be better than the print version?

    Well, the complete series is wonderful. I love that even when you are chewing your nails about the latest event, Simon can make you laugh out loud in the very next scene. Great Job Cassie.Molly dear, I love you in Castle but if you are going to continue to read these books, you need to learn how to pronounce the words correctly or the fans are going to cry.


    What about Molly C. Quinn’s performance did you like?

    Not much
