    Before she met Dragos, half-human half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now, she's mated, pregnant, and heading south to repair the Wyr's frayed relationship with the Elves. 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.

    Would you listen to Lord's Fall again? Why?

    GOOD STORY LINE AND I LOVE THE NARRATOR. LORDS FALL TAKES US BACK TO THE COUPLE IN FIRST BOOK (PIA AND DRAGOS).


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

    YES. EASLAKE DOES A EXCELLENT JOB ON BOTH MALE AND FEMALE VOICES. A MUST IF YOU ASK ME FOR ANY AUDIOBOOK THAT USES JUST ON NARRATOR.

    Meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he was the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

    Would you listen to Better When He's Bad again? Why?

    This is not my usual genre but I recently discovered Crownover's audiobooks and loved them. This one is darker but so well done I listened in one night and cant wait for the next one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Better When He's Bad?

    His reconnection with his brother.


    Have you listened to any of Mia Barron and Leland King ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No..But I thought they did an excellent job and hope they continue with this series.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have not read or listened to Crownover's other books..DO SO even if it is not your genre they are so well written that they are worth a try.."JET" is the first audiobook in her series.

    Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he'd give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it's too late.

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

    This is one of my favorite vampire series and I sincerely hope that audible will do the whole Vampire In America series on audiblebook..


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was NOTHING about this book that I did not like..Hot alpha male/feisty strong female. Great action and secondary characters.


    What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?

    Odom did a great job with narration..Both male and female voices plus all the secondary charcters were easily distinguishable.


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

    A vampire story for ADULTS....


    Any additional comments?

    Although Traci Odom would not have been my first choice for narration (Paula Costello, Angela Dawe or Hilary Huber would have been better) she did do a great job so I hope audile continues with the whole series and with Odom.

    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.

    I HAD LISTENED TO A LORRAINE HEATH BOOK NARRATED BY ADELE AND WAS SO IMPRESSED BY HER PERFORMANCE THAT FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN OVER 700 AUDIO BOOKS PURCHESED I WENT LOOKING FOR OTHER BOOKS BASED ON THE NARRATOR ALONE. 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 .


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

    THIS BOOK COVERED ALL EMOTIONAL REACTIONS THE ROMANCE WAS GREAT

    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.

    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.
