    Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule - desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken.

    What did you love best about Atlantis Rising?

    Typical paranormal romance but I liked the Atlantis setting and the mythology involved.


    What other book might you compare Atlantis Rising to and why?

    Lara Adrian (Breed series) Wards (BBD series) Larrisa Ione (Demonica series) group of hot warriors saving the world with a fiesty human female in tow. Good dialogue with humor.


    What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

    I agree with other reviewers Swanson not a good choice so I decided to not buy the rest of series but about half way through his voice grew on me so I did purchase rest of series.


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

    no

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    What did you love best about Divergent?

    the story was so well written.. Roth drew me in from the first paragraph and kept me mesmorized till the last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the dystopian world Roth created


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin – was your favorite?

    Tris


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

    When Al tried to apologized for almost killing Tris. Galvin narrated to emotions of the scene perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the whole series and highly recommend. Galvin was perfect as narrator. If you like Galvin try Kresley Cole "Poison Princess" also a Dystopian world and Galvin is great.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Poison Princess to be better than the print version?

    As I have stated in previous reviews I only buy audios of books that I have read and really like. Reading the book kicks in my own imagination adding an element to the story that you cant get in audio format. This makes the "narration" so important in audiobooks. A bad narrator can destroy a great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack (so intense) and I cant quite figure him out,


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Evie takes off on her own to rescue Matthew and Jack follows her.


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

    Surprise!! at how much I enjoyed the book and the audio.


    Any additional comments?

    Emma Galvin did a great job with all the characters both male and female. The story line is like a cross between "The Hunger Games" series and Jennifer Armentrouts "Lux" series. Both of those series were great by the way.

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

    Yes. Why? Besides the fact that it is a well written contemporary romance, but the narrator was so good that I went looking for other audiobooks that she has done and was surprised to discover that this was her first and only one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Even though I am not a fan of contemporary romance there was nothing about this audiobook that I did not like.


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

    Ms. Costello did all voices perfectly both male and female and the Scottish accents were great. I was so impressed with her but could not find anything else by her. I m sure that will change. If only Ms. Costello had been the narrator for all the "Fifty Shades of Grey" books so many people would not have been so disappointed in the narration of them me included she would have been perfect.


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

    Before listening to this book have your airline ticket to Edingurgh ready cause you will want to go.

SINCE SHE DOES NOT HAVE MANY I DECIDED TO GIVER THE IRON DUKE A TRY EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT THINK I WOULD LIKE IT. L. O. V. E. D IT AND HAVE PURCHESSED THE REST OF THE AUDIOBOOKS .

    Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn - when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them - the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost. Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift - and even lethal - justice.

    Would you listen to Edge of Dawn again? Why?

    I DID LISTEN TO IT AGAIN. I LOVE THE WORLD ADRIAN BRINGS TO LIFE IN THIS SERIES. SHE FLAWLESSLY ENTERED INTO A NEW GENERATION OF THE BREED WITHOUT LEAVING THE CHARACTERS BEHIND THAT MADE THIS SERIES.


    What other book might you compare Edge of Dawn to and why?

    J R WARDS SERIES OR THE PHOENIX PACK SERIES. ALSO FOR THOSE WHO LIKE THIS GENRE AND STORY LINE TRY SUZANNE WRIGHT "HERE BE SEXIST VAMPIRE" GREAT SERIES OR TERESA GABLEMAN SERIES BOTH ARE GREAT.


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

    ACTUALLY I HAVE BOTH BOOK AND AUDIO AND THERE ARE VERY FEW TIMES THAT I LIKE AUDIO OVER BOOK EVEN THOUGH I HAVE OVER 700 AUDIOBOOKS. BUT MIRA WAS LESS WHINY AND LESS OF A DOORMAT FOR KELLAN.


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

    BOTH. ANGRY AND FRUSTRATED BECAUSE MIRA WAS SUPPOSE TO BE SUCH A BAD ASS BUT IS WAS ALL IN HER OWN MIND BECAUSE YOU NEVER REALLY SAW ANY OF THE BAD ASS IN HER AT ALL. SHE EITHER CRIED, WHINED OR BEGGED(SHE BEGGED A LOT FOR KELLAN TO CHOSE HER I WANTED TO JUMP THRU MY IPOD AND SMACK HER TELL HER TO HAVE SOME PRIDE).


    Any additional comments?

    EVEN THOUGH MIRA WAS MY LEAST FAVORED CHARACTER IN ANY OF THE BREED SERIES BOOKS(LOVED HER AS A CHILD IN PREVIOUS BOOKS THOUGH) I WOULD NEVER GIVE UP ON THIS SERIES AND ALL THE NEW GENERATION OF BREED WARRIORS AND THEIR POSSIBLE STORY LINES HAS ME THRILLED THAT THIS SERIES WILL CONTINUE. ADRIAN SURE LEFT A CLIFF HANGER ENDING. AND THE CARROT DANGLER POSSIBLE NEXT STORYLINE WITH NATHAN AND JORDANA. CANT WAIT.

Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners, in more places than just the bedroom. In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be.

    They call him the Devil Earl - a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything-even strike a bargain with the devil himself. Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy.

    What did you love best about In Bed with the Devil?

    Passionate romance with a gutsy heroine and sexy alpha hero for starters. Great twist on the "Oliver Twist" story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    ISo well written...but the "Oliver Twist" angle was brilliant. The romance was both sweet and hot.


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

    Both


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Julie Garwood or Marsha Canham you will love this series. Just as the "Robin Hood" trilogy by Canham put a different spin on a great romance this series has done the same with the "Oliver Twist" spin. I highly recommend this series in both book and audio book versions. The narrators were great.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Redemption?

    The first meeting.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Angela Dawe is one of the best narrators out there. She can do male, female brilliantly. No one is better at distinguishing the different characters voices than Angela Dawe.
