    As Denver adjusts to a new master vampire, Kitty gets word of an intruder in the Denver werewolf pack's territory, and she investigates the challenge to her authority. She follows the scent of the lycanthrope through the mountains where she is lured into a trap, tranquilized, and captured. When she wakes up, she finds herself in a defunct silver mine: the perfect cage for a werewolf.

    Tracey says: "Kitty lite - might have worked better as a novella"

    Would you listen to Kitty in the Underworld again? Why?

    Meh....maybe...but its a slow starter.


    What other book might you compare Kitty in the Underworld to and why?

    Kitty is unique...but her series reminds me of the Cat and Bones series...but werewolves instead of vamps!


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

    MG is AWESOME!! she is one of my most fave narrators..


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

    this book would not be a good movie...but this series would be a great tv show!


    Any additional comments?

    Least fave of the 12...but I still love Kitty and cant wait till the next one...if you are a Kitty fan...you will appreciate it...Kitty will always Rock in my book!! :)

    When Earth didn't keep ts deal with the Ngirozi people....I was so mad!

    Ash had promised himself into servitude with a demon when he was only a child. He spent his life killing for the demon, and he was good at his job. It was the only way to ensure the safety of his sister. When a brush with death brings Dr. Elizabeth Rone into his life, things change. The demon wants her dead. And for Ash, that's a deal-breaker.

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

    I listen to A LOT of books...it doesn't make my top ten, but I enjoyed it...and will definitely continue the series!


    What other book might you compare Savior to and why?

    It kind of reminded me of Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid series...definitely that vibe!


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

    He is a decent narrator, he is good for male voices, his female voices are not great...he is definitely not in touch with his feminine side...lol But pleasant to listen to!


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

    The end...Ash has a great heart!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I was given a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review....and I did like it! Ash is an interesting character that I definitely want to know more about! I think this series has great potential and cant waif to see where it goes...From demon hunter servitude to angel...that is something cool...Ash is also unselfish and decent in a bad boy sort of way that makes you want to know him...its always those dark and mysterious types that suck a girl in and leave you wanting more....I will continue this series....and this story is well worth a listen!

    While Layla Petrovich returns home to rural Hamletville after a desperate call from her psychic grandmother, she never could have anticipated the horror of what Grandma Petrovich has foreseen. The residents of Hamletville will need Layla's cool head, fast blade, and itchy trigger finger to survive the undead apocalypse that's upon them. But even that may not be enough. With mankind silenced, it soon becomes apparent that we were never alone.

    This was a bit of a slow starter for me...but once the action started rolling it was hard to put down....I would rate it overall really a 4.5...and I loved the last 2hrs.....super exciting!! Layla is one of those strong female characters that deserves her own series....and I absolutely adore all the supernatural elements of this story...Vampires, shape shifters...ghosts..fairy like people..zombies...YES PLEASE!! Mix in a little bit of humor and snark and some romance..it was great!!!! Cant wait for #2 and to see how Crickets crew ties in with this one...This series is a winner!!!

    When the zombie apocalypse strikes without warning one dog will hold the fate of her pack in her paws. This is the story of Riley, an American bulldog. Follow along as she tries to keep her pack safe from a zombie apocalypse. Traveling with her are Ben-Ben the high-strung Yorkie; her favorite two-legger, Jessie; Jessie's younger brother, Zachary; and Riley's archenemy, Patches the cat.

    I laughed a LOT!!! I cried a little, and I screamed and cussed Beth and Paul a ton!!!! lol

    Ok I have to say it...Beth has GOTTA GO!!! And I wont cry if Paul does too....This was the best book of this series so far...I have liked them all, but this one just hit the right pitch finally and flowed like a Mike book should, I think its because Mikes character has grown into the Michael Talbot us readers are familiar with, and when he is with Tracy its just right...I love D, I want to be his friend, he is the coolest Alien I have ever read...and now BT! Woohoo!! All we need now is a Trip appearance and I will feel complete...I could not put this book down...I want and need more...good thing its less than a month till #5!! 2 huge thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!!!!
