    When her parents vanish, Cerise's clan's long-time rivals are suspects number one. But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge - and Cerise's life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation's spymaster. When William's and Cerise cross paths, sparks fly - but they'll have to work together if they want to succeed…and survive.

    Overall

    Although I really enjoy the Ilona Andrews books in general (and particularly liked The Edge, Book 1), I found this book incredibly boring. As another listener mentioned, the story was formulaic. It was also predictable and way too parallel to the story in the first Edge book. The fight scenes went on way too long and the monsters of the book were less than believable. A big disappointment - one of the few books that I have listed to that I was glad to be finished with.

    Story

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    Overall

    With so many "dark" stories (books and movies) out there in the world, I was unprepared for one that would really be DARK. I deeply regret listening to this book. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, and more than a year after listening to this book it still haunts me. I need to remind myself that the premise of the book is illogical, ingenerous and improbable. I wish mightily that someone had adequately warned me before I bought this book about the images that I was about to permanently put into my head. So consider yourself warned.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Overall

    This book was completely mesmerizing. The reading was absolutely fantastic and the story was captivating. I giggled, I cried, and I was desperately sorry when I had listened all the way to the end.

    The year is 1960, and, as it is every year, the Christmas pageant at St. John's Episcopal Church is a very big deal. Doug is a shepherd this year, which is better than being a "Three King", because, for one thing, you get to carry a stick.

    We stopped listening a little way in with our 6 year old as we heard a part that intimated that the parents of the child in the story were fixing up a bike in the basement that was supposed to be from Santa Claus....
