    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse - her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate, no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy.

    Would you listen to The Beautiful Ashes again? Why?

    I just finished hearing it and am going for a second round. I love Ivy & Adrian. I love the way Jeaniene Frost writes & have many of her books. I want the rest of the trilogy so please Jeaniene hurry up. Don't keep us waiting long because the excitement is killing me :)


    What other book might you compare The Beautiful Ashes to and why?

    Just like Jeaniene Frost’s other books - Night Huntress, Night Huntress World (Night Huntress Spin-Off), Broken Destiny is as exciting as they come.


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

    Tavia Gilbert has an amazing voice and I love the way she individualizes each character. You can tell that there are different people talking. Her voice is like Amanda Ronconi’s you never get tired of listening to them 


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

    Yes the moment when everything fell into place ans Ivy realized the true menaing of faith and love and the cute gargoile puppy :o


    Any additional comments?

    Please hurry & produce the others in this series. I already figured that there are at least 3 so I am anxious to get them all. Books like these are what make me want to read. Too bad they weren’t around when I was a kid & hated reading.

    What made the experience of listening to Vampire Sun the most enjoyable?

    Well, I have been enthrawled by the series ever since I read the first book.
    I love the way that Dina Pearlman Narrated it. I have laughed, cried ^ even been on the edge of my seat, litterally.
    I cant wait for Book 10 - Moon Dragon - Vampire for Hire !!!!!!!!!!!!


    What other book might you compare Vampire Sun to and why?

    Well I'm beginning to love all of J. R. Rain's books.Narrated by Dina Pearlman. No other should Narrate his books just like -
    The Nightwalkers, The World of Nightwalkers, The Shadowdwellers (Jacquelyn Frank) Narrated By Xe Sands, Dark (CARPATHIAN) Series (Christine Feehan) Narrated By Phil Gigante, Natalie Ross,
    Chicagoland Vampires (Chloe Neill) can only be Narrated by Cynthia Holloway,
    His Dark Materials (Philip Pullman) Narrated By Philip Pullman, Full Cast
    Immortals After Dark (Kresley Cole) Narrated By Robert Petkoff
    Jane Yellowrock (Faith Hunter) Narrated By Khristine Hvam, just like all of Molly Harper's books are Narrated By Amanda Ronconi,
    Anna Strong (Jeanne C. Stein) Narrated By Jeanne C. Stein, Midnight Liaisons (Jessica Sims) Narrated By Leah Mallach, and
    Kismet Knight, Vampire Psychologist (Lynda Hilburn) Narrated By Hillary Huber.
    These are just to name a few of my favs.
    They just truly bring the books to life.
    The way they are written & Narrated are what keep me coming back for more. The Narrators are a perfect marriage to these books any one else would have messed them up. These Narrators are so good that any one of them could have done all of these books and I would not have been disappointed :)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really don't have one because the whole book is my fav but if I must choose, then the one in the book where Sam has to pick up the kids from school late and the opening where she talks about her fav shoe Judge Judy :o


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

    Get ready for some kick ass action, family love, comedy and fear all mixed up in weird. You will never leave your home again !


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for more Sam and her family. A book basted on the kids and their powers would be cool too. I sometime imagine that Sam takes the kids on a holiday in bat form.
    Also, when are all of Vampire for Hire - Samantha Moon First 8 Short be in audible ?????????

    Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon. Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart. A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more power than almost anyone else.

    Who else but Geneva & Travis!!!!!!!!

    I love the different voices she makes. Sometimes it's hard to tell that only one persone is telling the story. She reminds me of Miss Ronconi they both have great vocal talent :)

    I have listened to it all in one sitting about twice already.

    Yeah! Don't leave me hanging!I am dying for the next book because I know that the story can't just end like that. They still have to stop the evil twin!!!!!

    Any additional comments?

    I read this one first because it was cheaper and I wanted to know what it was about. I am glad that they can be read out of order. BUT,,, know I am hooked and plan on getting them all especially book 5 since this book left me hang'n... I am desperate to find out how she gets out of the Demon realm.

    What other book might you compare Blood Bond to and why?

    That's easy, Jane Jameson, Kismet Knight, Vampire Psychologist, Parasol Protectorate, Phoenix Pack, Protector of the Small Quartet, Vampire for Hire, Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Series because the main characters or co-protagonists are all strong willed women like myself only prettier.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    Anna, Frey, John John, Culebra and Vlad and Max.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely, no matter how sleepy I was I couldn't rest until I reached the end!!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I feel satisfied in knowing this is the end and that I don't have to suffer waiting to see what happens next. Sad that Anna's mom is dying but glad that she got to live long enough to fix things between them and see a parents most cherished wish come true.If you haven't read any of Anna Strong's books your missing out on a great adventure.I am kinda sad to know that this is the end of the series but I will never get tired of reading it over and over and over again :)

    An exciting new tale set in the world of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials saga. Lyra's Oxford opens in the thrilling comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird (a witch's daemon, on its own) tumbles out of the sky. It is Ragi, daemon of Yelena Pazhets.

    Helen Feddema says: "Great story, great reading"
    "This book is fascinating;"

    Lyra's Oxford makes you wish you were a kid again!!!
    it is set between books 2 and 3. It shows Lyra at play and adventurous as ever.
    I recommend it to all!!!
