    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    If you could sum up Theft of Swords in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, thrilling, and adventurous


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's difficult to pick only one,but I'll choose the protaganist Hadrian Blackwater, 95% of the time he found the silver lining and he was a hero to the end.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynolds’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first listen and I really enjoy his writing talent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely, but too many hours to pull off that goal.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Tim Gerard Reynolds, I hope you will permit Audible to release your final book of the trilogy: HEIR OF NOVRON. I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I look forward to the audio version. The narrator does a teriffic job.

    Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendent. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives - a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for. Fenris Dalka has returned to the Carpathian Mountains after a long absence to be with his brother. He is scarred by centuries of battle, and every hard-won victory.

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

    In audio version with Mr. Sarkus narrating, awful. I couldn't listen beyond the first chapter. I did enjoy reading the Kindle version.


    What didn’t you like about Robert Sarkus’s performance?

    High pitched, whiney voice which doesn't fit the Carpathian males at all!

    Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels - and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell - he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before…to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself….

    Story
    Would you listen to Reaver again? Why?

    Grudgingly because I love this story but don't like the narrator


    What other book might you compare Reaver to and why?

    That's a tough choice to make. If you like paranormal romance such as the Black Dagger Brotherhood series it would be a good comparison. There's grit, angst, humor and hot n steamy romance


    What didn’t you like about Helen Wick’s performance?

    I really didn't like her portrayal of the Sem Brothers (Eidolon, Shade n Wraith) who sound like prepubescent boys, Runa whose Bronx accent doesn't fit her character and Ares whose given some bizarre accent. It's very distracting and disappointing as I truly like these characters from her books in the Demonica series.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last few scenes with Reaver and Harvester escaping from Sheol. The emotional bonds formed as they face off against past hurts, choose forgiveness and follow the path of love which helps them face dire conflicts ahead.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't purchased this audio version, I would simply read it, the story is very good and was worth the wait. I look forward to the next book in the series: Revenant, my only hope is Helen Wick WILL NOT be its narrator.

    If you could sum up Dark Lover in three words, what would they be?

    Erotic paranormal fantasy


    What other book might you compare Dark Lover to and why?

    Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series book one: Angel's Blood. The three word summation for Dark Lover also applies.


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

    The BDB series is the first time I had heard Mr. Frangione's narration. He is fantastic for this series and a great talent.


    If you could rename Dark Lover, what would you call it?

    Beth's Troubled Warrior, but Dark Lover is so much better.


    Any additional comments?

    I had never listened to nor read any paranormal fantasy books until Dark Lover. I became instantly enthralled and have purchased all the books in the series through Audible. Now I'm a paranormal fan of authors such as Nalini Singh, Christine Feehan, Jeanine Frost, Lynsay Sands,and Katie MacAllister.

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

    Yes. Readers/listeners need to schew their perspectives on the afterlife and the battle strategies between angels n demons. JRWard puts an interesting twist in the Fallen Angel series. Jim Heron and his duo kick-ass angel buddies bring a lot of color into this story. Without giving away the plot, I will only say if you've enjoyed Ward's BDB series, this one won't disappoint. Ward even weaves in characters from her BDB into this one. Since this series also revolves around Caldwell, NY, it makes sense. 5 stars for another entertaining series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels?

    When Jim took the bullet meant for the hero n heroine.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But I like his voice n style


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. Just amused by the author's take on the heavenly/hell warfare tactics

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    To have the unabridged recording of this story. The Amelia Peabody Series should never be abridged!! Please audible, release the unabridged version!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The entire Peabody/Emerson family. I cannot choose only one.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Ms. Rosenblat's talent makes each book in the series a delight. EXCEPT the abridged versions, which really aren't a reflection on her abilities, but even her talented narration cannot mask the disappointment in the abridged version.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Falcon at the Portal?

    NONE. Please release an unabridged version of this book. Hey Audible, catch on to my recurring theme?


    Any additional comments?

    I hope more audible listeners will also request this series to be released in its entirity unabridged. Thank you

    Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men - a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be. Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess.

    Would you listen to Under a Vampire Moon again? Why?

    Yes. I love all the Argeneau novels and this last one doesn't disappoint.


    What other book might you compare Under a Vampire Moon to and why?

    For it's paranormal querkiness and humor I would compare it to Jeanine Frost's "Bones and Cat Series" (The Grave...) You love all the characters and how you are drawn into all the various plots and the subtle humor is a delight.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Oh I cannot pin one down as I always love the Argeneau family interaction and there were many in this one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Christian tells Christiana his history and true sexual nature, then demonstrates...phew!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly reccomend the entire Argeneau Series by Lynsay Sands. There are various narrators but they all are wonderful to listen too.
