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

    this is my favorite series by far, i am a 40 plus mother and i just love this series of books and i love how everything is wrapped in a non so perfect bow but still ends perfectlly


    What did you like best about this story?

    it finally ends the way i want it to end, it builds and so pleasantly surprised.


    What about Emily Shaffer’s performance did you like?

    i do like her voice and you are able to tell which character is who


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

    yes!!!!!with out spoiling the ending, when one of the main characters finally realizes his destiny.


    Any additional comments?

    if you are a fan of any vampire series, this is the series to read. It beats out the blue bloods by a long shot.

    I love the dynamics of the characters and the places these characters take you.

    I did not think i would like the story because it is set in the 1800's but it was fantastic and like a breath of fresh air it hasnt been done to death.

    I had never listened to Jennifer Ehle before on audio but i loved her and you could really tell which character she was speaking for. Great preformance

    Schuyler Van Alen is running out of time. The Dark Prince of Hell is storming the Gates of Paradise, intent on winning the heavenly throne for good. This time he has his greatest angels by his side, Abbadon and Azrael, or as they are known in the coven, Jack and Mimi Force. Will Bliss and the wolves she has recruited to join her win the battle for the vampires? Is Schuyler prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, the same one Michael was forced to make in Florence so long ago?

    What would have made The Gates of Paradise better?

    It was so hard to follow, and at the end their could have been a wonderful family reunion and nothing!


    Has The Gates of Paradise turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I dont think so, but very discouraged


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christina Moore?

    someone younger


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Gates of Paradise?

    I dont know about cutting scenes but would have added scenes, a better tie in with the wolves because unless you read that particular book,which is not a part of this series you were lost. I know that if i had never had seen my father and had the oppurtunity to see him, there would not have been just one line about it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book at the potential to be epic and tie up all loose ends and it did not. It gave you the ending that you expected.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Glass Houses to be better than the print version?

    it is similar to blue bloods but better, i feel you get to know the characters better in the morganville vampires.


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

    Morganville Texas, this small town has a dangerous secret!


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a teen and far from it, i did not know what to expect when i began reading the series, but now i am hooked and love these books.

    In Last Breath, the rain brought a new and dire threat to Morganville and its vampires...their ancient enemies, the draug. Now, the vampires are fighting a losing war, and it will fall to the residents of the Glass House - Michael, Eve, Shane, and Claire - to take the fight to an enemy who threatens to destroy the town, forever. Lovers of Morganville, rejoice: Black Dawn takes the intrigue, romance, and nail-biting suspense of the series to its highest level yet.

    What made the experience of listening to Black Dawn the most enjoyable?

    I absolutley love this book, i have read all the series and this is my favorite. I feel like you get to see the characters grow before your eyes. I however did not care for the new narrator. We have got to listen to the to the same person for the entire series until this one and really disapointed. I hope they change before the next book, but that being said, i cant wait for the next book.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Did not care for it at all, sorry

    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.

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

    I would recommend this book to all of the Sookie Followers, there is closure with several story lines


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadlocked?

    i feel you get a real sense of her family that she has missed out on, i feel that uncle durmont fully evolved and was a great part of the story line.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    I loved her accent and it is believable


    If you could take any character from Deadlocked out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    definatley Great Uncle Durmont, would love to here the stories of fairy
