    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    The ending to this book was unnecessary. I am fine with a book ending in this fashion if it is warranted....but this wasn't. I can honestly say that I would not have read this series if I had known the ending. I feel bad for recommending this trilogy to all of my friends....Lesson learned finish series before giving recommendations. Ms. Roth could have changed a few minor things and made this series a smash hit. I will not even go watch the movie...OH maybe I will, I bet the screen writer will change the end!!!!!

    Narrators were great!!!!

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    I am a minority and enjoyed some of the old characters that returned. I didn't mind who she ended up with but felt that it wasn't planned well. I thought Eric and Sookie's relationship should have ended with more drama (they loved each other, and I have been team Eric for years!!!!). The plot was too elaborate and I found myself wishing I had kept notes from the previous books. I still enjoyed this book and if it wasn't the last would keep reading/listening. If you are a true sookie fan you will still love this book :)

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    If someone were to ask me who my favorite writer is I would respond "JK Rowling," with that said this book is Horrible. I only made it to chapter 8, could not make myself wast any more time I could spend listening to a book I enjoy. Definitly not in the league with Harry Potter. I knew it wasn't going to be fantasy but this book was just plain boring. Sorry JK :(

    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.

    The narration of this series of books is excellent!!!! The story was wonderful although sometimes confusing with all of the various names and new characters. My most favorite moments were while they were visiting Matthew's father and my least favorite moments were while they were in Prague. I will not include any spoilers about the end of the book just to say get some tissues and hope the last book comes quick :)

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Story

    While not as good as the first 5 or 6 books in this series I still enjoy the life of Sookie Stackhouse. I have always been team Eric but after the last book (and this book) I was a bit disappointed in Eric's character. I'm not sure where Charlaine Harris is going with this series....and I love the suspense of not knowing. I would recommend this book....it makes me want to start the series all over again!!!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    The story is fabulous...if this is the only way you can "read" this book than you must download because it is a must listen/read. With that said.....the narration of this series is not what I expected.

    I have read and listened to this entire series....I consider it one of my most favorite (among them HP, Twilight and Hunger Games). This series has just enough action, mystery and romance. I have also started the spin off series Bloodlines. I didn't care for the narration of the first few books in this series but they were still great. Emily Shaffer was wonderful!!!!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
