    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Big magic and over the top fights. This book kept me interested from beginning to end. I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of the chapters it really showed the difference between our reality and the book. I can't wait for the next book and if your smart you will definitely keep the narrator he rocks!

    Jessica is invited to join other crime writers at an interactive murder mystery weekend in a historic mansion turned resort. A theatrical troupe presents a play for the paying guests, but a young actor's death during the actual performance isn't part of the script. The local sheriff has never investigated a murder before and enlists Jessica's help and expertise. As she begins to put the pieces together in her folksy fashion, Jessica recognizes that this could well be her last performance.

    The narrator's accents were all over the place which distracted from the story. Other than that story was just okay.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this story I will be listening to the entire series. It deals of course with friendship and with each person's character. What I found most interesting was the intellect of the main characters to survive the jester's trap. I definitely recommend.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    I liked the story but the were some loose ends and Matthew leaving for New Orleans seemed contrived. My biggest disappointment was with the narration why the changes of voices for some of the characters. Overall I gave it 4 stars because it was still a good storyline.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Shadow of Night was slowed down by the historical meandering so it was not as interesting as Discovery of Witches but I can see where some of this information was necessary. I did miss the quick witted conversation between Dianna and Matthew but the introduction of some of the new characters made up for it. I would recommend this book it was a continuation and pick up exactly where the first book ended.

    Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mind reader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf.

    As the new story begins, Leeds and his "aspects" are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there's a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous.

    I thought the first book Legion was fantastic and was hoping for another installment and boy this sequel did not disappoint! It may have been only 4 hours 23 minutes long but there was a lot of action, technology, and some fun thrown in to make this a very exciting sequel. The interaction between Leeds and his aspects keep the plot moving but also the interaction with the aspects and other characters in the story makes for a very entertaining story. I throughly enjoyed J C's time ranger theory explaining his presence among the aspects. I am certainly a fan of Brandon Sanderson and Oliver Wyman and together they make a kick butt team keep up the good work. Once again I am hoping and praying for another installment. Thanks audible for the wonderful price FREE!

    Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one - and it happens to be government-sanctioned. But Donna earned it the hard way: Her husband was killed the day she delivered their third child. To avenge her husband's murder, Donna leads a secret life as an assassin. But espionage makes for strange bedfellows, and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home...."

    Yes, I would recommend this story it may be hard to believe but this was a lighthearted story with some funny scenes and some slapstick thrown in for good measure. Don't get me wrong there were some very dark moments in the book which should be expected because of the subject matter but they do not detract from the story. The plot twist changes the story dramatically and leads right into the next book. As the story progressed I really became interested in what happened to Donna and her kids. I liked the music and helpful hints at the beginning of each chalpter. I enjoyed the narrator I think she added to the lightheartedness of the audio. I am eagerly awaiting the entire series on audible. Sorry for the briefness of this review but it was hard to write without including any spoilers.

    At first I was not sure how I felt about the story at times it was repetitive and predictable. I stuck with it and now I am looking forward to hearing the next book. It ended at a place where I was so into the storyline that it left me wanting to know what happens next and to me that makes for a good book. At first I thought the book was good against evel but that is not the whole of it. It's also about trust and love and what you would sacrific for it. I did like the fact that the story was not filled with a lot of descriptive sex scenes. I liked both narrators and how they brought a good first person perspective to the storyline, please keep them.

    For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.
