    Like sand through an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn't know if he can do this: live only to lose Luce again and again. Yet together they face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies ... and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen, for she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel.

    What did you love best about Rapture?

    I loved the ending! It was perfect


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

    I listened to The Fallen and loved it. Justine Eyre did a masterful job telling the story.


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

    The ending. Throughout the series I wondered how it would come together. Lauren Kate wrote a perfect ending - in itself a new beginning. Her characters are amazing. I loved them all.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for her next book. Luce is a strong young woman, smart, athletic, thoughtful, smart and able to stand on her own. Sometimes when the male characters are so charismatic the heroine is diminished. Luce was surrounded by gorgeous, charismatic angels and stood toe to toe with all of them.

    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.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."
    "Fast paced, a page turner!"

    What did you love best about Divergent?

    Tris is a strong, smart, fearless character who tends to act first, think about it later. Four is exciting and a perfect match for Tris.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fast paced action, characters you care about


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

    Insurgent. She does a great job


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

    Yes! The pacing makes you hungry for more

    It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive. Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them - not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain.

    C. ALLINGER says: "Stiefvater does it again!"
    "The Raven Boys is exceptional!"

    Where does The Raven Boys rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top! Nabokov said a great writer must be an enchanter and Maggie Stiefvater gets better with every book. She creates a world and pulls her reader in. I love her!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like Blue but Gansey and his quest is irresistable


    Which character – as performed by Will Patton – was your favorite?

    Will Patton's reading is mesmerizing! His southern storyteller's voice is perfect for the story. I hope he reads the entire series.


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

    I was so caught up in the story. It made me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the rest. Read this book.

    There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori. Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
