    What did you love best about Days of Blood & Starlight?

    I loved it ALL! It was beautifully written, beautifully narrated...most of it was quite tragic, but described in such poetic words....just WOW!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    there are many, But I do love Karou....she strives for a better world, and with such young hope and brutal strength....you can not help but love her...I wanted to reach into the book and take her in my arms and just tell her that it would be ok,,,,but will it?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked many, or loved to be specific, but I think when she teaches her friends to become invisible was one of my faves....


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

    SOOOOOOOO MANY! But the ending, the last hour or so, made me weep,,,


    Any additional comments?

    Laini Taylor is so talented, she writes with such an open heart,,,I can not wait for the next book!! OMG! WOW! Tears......such a beautifully tragic tale...I will read it again....

    In Kami Garcia's "Burn 3", Phoenix lives in a post-apocalyptic world where the sun kills. In Melissa Marr's "Corpse Eaters", Harmony and Chris live in a world where religion spiraled out of control. The sick or disobedient are gathered to feed the corpse-eating god. In Carrie Ryan's "Miasma", Frankie lives in a world in which disease is spread not through germs but rather through "bad air" - miasma. When a deadly plague breaks out in her town, Frankie will do anything keep her sick sister from being taken by the beaked doctors who use monstrous beasts to weed out the ill.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Futures the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narration and all 3 stories were good....All of them had a lot of heart and very likable strong female characters....I love short stories....and this book did not disappoint!

    Ok I want to lay it out a bit for you guys....first story...Burn 3...Its about a girl and her sister in a post apocalyptic world...its touching, and shows the bonds of love and struggle in a harsh world....liked it a lot...give it a thumbs up...I like Kami Garcia in general and this was a nice change of pace for her...5 stars!

    Second story...Corpse eaters....This is a story of avenging your family...a young girl and her partner a little older guy...go out to kill these flesh eating beasts..and avenge her sisters death, but theres a little twist in there that will make you say wow!! I liked it...and give it 4.5 stars!

    Now story three was my fave...Miasma...A 16 year old girl cares for her sister after her mom was taken away because she has the plague....the swamps are making the poor sector sick...and there are Bone Drs and beasts that come every night to detect the sick and drag them away....There is a bit of a love story...and a family bond that makes this story wonderful...and makes you want more of these characters...this one gets 2 huge thumbs up and a highly recommend!! 5 stars!! I now want to read more From Carrie Ryan!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    What other book might you compare Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile to and why?

    This is a very serious book...I cant compare it to the other zombie books I have read,,,


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    I love him...I have listened to him in other series and he is a very good narrator...


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

    Theres not much to laugh at here...but there is some dry humor...and a lot of sadness..this is a difficult world to live in....and its a shame when your own government turns on you.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this series...its an interesting story and it will keep you interested..I enjoyed this book very much,,,,and would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a haunting zombie tale....2 thumbs up and a recommend from me!

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away - especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her. Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone.

    I hate this question...but this would make a cute movie, if they didn't ruin it like they did beautiful creatures!

    I like this book and hope they continue the series....Ridley is a very complex and interesting character and Link makes me laugh....this whole book kept e interested from beginning to end....and the cliffhanger it ended on has me dying for more...2 thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!

    From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.

    The way Winter sacrifices herself for her friends at the end...she was so brave and a very noble girl....I am very impressed with Winter...and cant wait for book 2...to see where this story goes...I gave it a 4 star...but really more like 4.5 after you get about 3 chapters in...


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    She is an excellent little narrator...I would listen to her anytime!!

    I love Mark Tufo's writing as a whole...he adds a bit of humor to even the most dire consequences and situations..this is going to be a great series...and hope there is a 2nd one soon....like I said I gave this story 4 stars...but it is really more like 4.5...It is a great story of bravery, courage and friendship...and you will love it!!!

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case.

Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.
