    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    If you could sum up Gregor the Overlander in three words, what would they be?

    I loved it


    What other book might you compare Gregor the Overlander to and why?

    It was straight up schoolboys adventure, a bit of intrigue a bit of suspense... my boys just loved it


    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was a brilliant narrator - I will be looking for more of his work. H ebrought the characters to life

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but I can't imagine a better experience than hearing David Tennant reading this book


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stroy itself was profound and insightful. The eyes of a ten year old boy offer new insights into grief, racism and family struggles


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    He captured the heart and soul of the 10 year old boy, I loved it

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

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

    It's a perfectly good book for that genre - just not the genre for me.


    Has The Warlord Wants Forever turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Did Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    They were great narrators and I loved the dual narrating


    What character would you cut from The Warlord Wants Forever?

    none
