    Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage. But Annabelle’s most intriguing — and persistent — admirer, wealthy, powerful Simon Hunt, has made it clear that while he will introduce her to irresistible pleasure he will not offer marriage. Annabelle is determined to resist his unthinkable proposition…but it is impossible in the face of such skillful seduction.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, however as a hardback and not on audible. The narrator was inneffective. She would have done well to just read in her own voice and not try to act out the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I just finished reading/listening last week and do not remember any of the characters names.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rosalyn Landor?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I believe if there were another narrator this series would be better. But since the other books are with this narrator, I will not be buying them on Audible. I might by the books in a store if they are on sale just to see where it all ends.

  • Fablehaven, Book 1

    For centuries, mystical creatures of all description were gathered to a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic in a cynical world. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite... Kendra and her brother Seth have no idea their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who likes this narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator should have read the book before reading it to others. Worst performance ever heard on audible and I've heard a few. I couldn't take the story in because he made it unrealistic for me.


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

    Angry. Narrator made Seth actions with the fairy sem like he was enjoying it instead of feeling remorse. I know it's a kids book but the emotions were all the same when they should be scared or somber they were happy and excited.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have loved to finish this book and even keep buying the series but the narrator ruined it for me not even half way through. I think I will buy the actual books and read them because it seems like a good series. Narrator definitely needs to work on range of emotions because he portrayed Seth as a very annoying trouble maker instead of a curious young boy. I asked my niece to listen and she didn't like narrator either.

    In this suspenseful final installment in the acclaimed Underland Chronicles, Suzanne Collins unfolds the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor the Overlander, in a manner that can only be described as masterful.

    Where does Gregor and the Code of Claw rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the very top! I absolutely loved this series!


    What other book might you compare Gregor and the Code of Claw to and why?

    Harry Potter series since it is just as intriguing and I was not able to put the headphones down in either of them.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    He brought the characters to life and that is quite a feat.


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

    Throughout the books when he put his sister first above everything else. Even his own safety. However I did shed a few tears with him and Aries as well as the story between Ripred and Gregor.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is an absolute must have for kids and adults alike! This last book was the best and left me wanting more. I would like to see how Gregor and Boots grow up in the real world after all the adventures they had in the Underland.
