    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    the charters were just bad. i like Nalini Singh as on author, so i thought this would be a good read, but god, the book just wouldn't end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    i think somthing for Sherrilyn Kenyon.


    What didn’t you like about Isabelle Gordon’s performance?

    Gordon's performance was ok, but i dont think that there was much more she could do.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lord of the Abyss?

    if i was the editor i would have ask singh to rewrite almost all of it

    Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard?

    Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.

    What would have made Dragons of the Dwarven Depths better?

    there is nothing that would make this book better. the only character that i liked tasslehoff. the plot was poor and went on forever and went no were. after an hour all i wanted was for it to end. the only reason purchase this book was because it was on sale (under $5) and i over payed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    some thing that i know will be good, something by patricia briggs, jeaniene frost, sherrilyn kenyon, laurellk hamilton, jenna black, or michelle sagara.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sandra Burr’s performances?

    i dont know if burr's performance was really bad of if this book was just that back, so i would listen to sample of another performance, but i wouldn't just buy it.

    Patricia Briggs' "unique" (Kliatt) novel of a slave, swordwielder, and spy gets a second life with an exciting new package to attract the fans that made her Mercy Thompson novels bestsellers.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Steal the Dragon to be better than the print version?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another book from Patricia Briggs? Why or why not?

    i love patricia briggs, and i love most of her books (the Mercy Thompson Series is a must read), so i had high hope for this book (i loved masques) but i didn't fall in love with any for the charaters (like i did with wolf).


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer James Bradshaw’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    i have heard her in The hob's Bargan and it was ok, but i would have had Katherine Kellgren read all of the Sianim Series.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    dont think of it as part of Sianim Series (Masques and Wolfsbane) think of it as its own book.
