    In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it's her job to fulfill them. But she's playing a far more dangerous game - one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense. But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players - a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge.

    Robbie says: "Read the Ghostwalker Series. It Rocks!"

    Would you listen to Samurai Game again? Why?

    No, it takes a really intriguing story or an exceptionally written book for me to listen more than once.


    Would you recommend Samurai Game to your friends? Why or why not?

    only to follow in the series but I think its not required as this book doesn't take the series anywhere.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Stechschulte’s performances?

    I like Tom Stechschulte's performances in other series but this one ? not so much. he is too soft for this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very surprised by the sex scenes and thought some things are just better left to the imagination.

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pines?

    all of Pines was memorable because as it was unfolding I felt terrorized along side Ethan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    don't want to spoil anything….


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

    I don't know if I was moved but I sure was biting my nails and staying up way too late.


    Any additional comments?

    this is a gripping chilling novel. I've read Justin Cronin the 12 and passage and liked that futuristic tale and although this novel is much shorter and not as deep it is a great listen.I bought the second in the trilogy before I finished the first and would have bought the third if it were available. I will patiently wait. I wish Audible had an alert feature.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish.... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    What would have made The Last Boyfriend better?

    a bit of depth or a better narrator, sorry.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    yes, I truly love NR and am just disappointed by this series because combining the 3 would have made better sense story wise and dollar wise.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    dont really follow narrators much


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    maybe not the edge of my seat but I enjoyed the directional changes


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I almost always enjoy his ability to give a little more depth to a story with his "performance style"


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

    I would always want to listen at once, just like reading but its impossible of course.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Would you listen to The Passage again? Why?

    yes, it will probably be right before book 3 comes out though


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Passage?

    too many to count


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

    yes, I have listened to many of Scott Bricks performances. He can sometimes be over the top with the whiny adults or children's voices in other books but I have no complaint at all about this books reading. I really enjoyed his performance.


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

    it was sad in that I may not believe this experiment is possible but I don't think it is that far off base as and end of civilization as we know it.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    I think this series would be best sent to Harlequin and combined so as to save time and money. Something truly lacking in the story, no depth and the narration is as slow as frozen molasses.
    I am a Nora Roberts fan btw just not this series and certainly not for the cost.
