    Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett thought she knew exactly where her life was going. But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone - including herself - when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own. Grabbing her purse and her cell phone, Camryn boards a Greyhound bus ready to find herself. Instead, she finds Andrew Parrish.

    This book is about living life to the fullest. It makes you smile, it will bring tears to your eyes and you will root for Cam and Andrew. Although I think this deals with the 20 something's, it will captivate even those older. Worth a credit!

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    I would have loved to listen to this book. The narration makes it unbearable. I am unclear why this narrator was chosen but listeners beware. I found it impossible to get through more than 2 chapters.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    What made the experience of listening to Reflected in You the most enjoyable?

    I fell in love with Gideon Cross and I found it wonderful to actually get more of a story, rather than all love scenes in this book. Please don't think that I don't love the hot and steam sex scenes...I do, but I also want a story. Reflected in you gave this in the second book. I don't want to compare 50 Shades to this book. I found that I could only handle so many "laters baby" and other ridiculous exclamations in the 50 Shades series. It was a turn off despite the love scenes. I enjoyed the story and am sad that the next installment will not be out until May of 2013.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Shadow of Night the most enjoyable?

    I am not a listener, or even a reader that enjoys books about vampires and witches...or so I thought. This book sucked me in. I could not wait to listen to this book after Discovery of Witches. The character development and detailed 16th century experience was enjoyable. I found the numerous characters performed by a talented narrator the most enjoyable part of this book. I would like to add that I find it offensive when reviewers come on to audible and leave reviews that outline the entire story and then remind us all that they are not"spoilers". Note to these reviewers. YOU ARE giving away spoilers if you are taking the time in multiple paragraphs to outline the entire purpose of the time travel or any other main parts in a story line and the like. I am grateful that I read reviews AFTER I wrote this review because why get the book if you are telling the reader what happens? Please stop this nonsense because it is a disappointment and it ruines the anticipation of the book for others. Moving on, Deborah Harkness is terrific at character development and detailing the period in this book. Jennifer Ikeda is a talented narrator and has the uncanny ability of bringing to life the many characters in this book. The book is lengthy but unlike others I found the detail wonderful in helping me bring myself to this period as if I was viewing this story unfolding from a window. I can't wait for the final book in this series and am hopeful that I will not find a review that answers all the questions that I am reading or listening to the book for. Listeners you will not be disappointed in the story that unfolds between Diana and Matthew. Don't miss this second book!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Story

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    If you could sum up Winter of the World in three words, what would they be?

    Ken Follett has done an amazing job in Winter of the World. Initially, I was not sure if I would purchase the second book... I am glad that I did. The second book captures time frames that most of us can relate to. Follett is a masterful writer and his ability to educate and entertain is refreshing. Readers will not be disappointed. John Lee gives another amazing performance and brings this book to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter of the World?

    I found the time leading up to and after the attack on Pearl Harbor a moment that I will not soon forget.


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

    John Lee gave another amazing performance. His voice is elegant and easy listening.


    If you could rename Winter of the World, what would you call it?

    A Time of Strength and Suffering
