    Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu Chang - a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now she is known as one of their most effective operatives.

    Where does What Doesn't Kill You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Midway


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot was fast and entertaining.


    What three words best describe Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

    Wrong for this story - why not find a Chinese narrator as the two main characters are Chinese?


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    It took time to get into this book due to the narrator - she isn't bad - just wrong for the characters.

    In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street - and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends. The special Collector’s First Edition will include a never-before-seen letter from Will to his family!

    Aimee says: "Beautifully Written."

    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Prince the most enjoyable?

    Overall, the audio version of the Clockwork Prince is excellent. Narrators are quite suited to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The singing was almost unbearable. I'm glad the singing periods were rare, because they could have destroyed a fine audio book.
