    Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels. Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty who has left a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash’s death even as his passion demands her surrender.

    Story
    Would you listen to A Hunger So Wild again? Why?

    Not particularly. I liked the story, not so the narrator. First, I really preferred the narrator from the first book, and this was a negative change. I don't think Rachel Vivette differentiated the characters enough, or gave them their own voice. In particular, Vashti is a vary strong female, and this narrator made her sound whiney weaker than I think she was.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Vashti and the strong woman who could hold her own.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rachel Vivette’s performances?

    On the fence here, I might try another but only if there were positive ratings.


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

    I enjoyed the story. While this is certainly no epic saga, I did enjoy it and I am waiting for the third.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Primal Law to be better than the print version?

    I can't truthfully answer this because I have not read the print. However - I can say definitely that the narrator didn't serve this one well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the story line. Sure, it's very stereotypical - they are shifters, each has some kind of psy power... But the twist is that there seems to be a conspiracy somewhere (I won't give any spoilers) and there are consequences for actions taken - for using those powers. I think for a first book in a series, this is a very nice setup for the series - for many stories of the other team members and what they are fighting.


    What didn’t you like about Kirsten Potter’s performance?

    I did not like that there didn't seem to be much differentiation between the voices. All the men sounded about the same flatness, and the women sounded like softer man.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Big Dawgs


    Any additional comments?

    Best line: "I'll do a lot of things on command, but I don't roll over for anyone, sweetheart"

    As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut - a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really loved this book, probably more than I expected. It was lighter than what Anne Bishop has written, but definitely just as rich. The world and characters she creates are unique and have their own personalities, and Ms. Bishop builds relationships between Meg and the characters - it's definitely not love at first sight. I like how the relationships are tenuous at first,


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Written in Red?

    The interactions with Meg and Sam were probably some of the best in the book. When Elliot slapped Meg and Simon had to intervene about the leash, well, that's about all I should say without spoilers :) There were several moments that had me laughing out loud.


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

    No, but I'm tempted to get another book just for Ms. Harris's performance. I really loved how she gave the characters their own voice. I found this easy to listen to because of Ms. Harris, the pace was right, the characters and story flowed, and she brought depth and emotion to the characters. I felt Ms. Harris really understood the characters and did a fantastic job translating their personality to voice. Especially Simon, his gruff, often cranky personality, was a pleasure to listen to!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge Anne Bishop fan and this did not disappoint. I didn't want this one to end and I've already pre-ordered the second.

    An angel with immense power and insatiable desire, Adrian Mitchell leads an elite Special Ops unit of the seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen - angels who have become vampires - and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn’t remember him. This time he won’t let her go.

    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Luke Daniels's performance. I liked how he distinguished between narration and characters, and his differentiation in the characters. Generally also, I liked his voice in this. I would look for Luke Daniels narration in other audio books.


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely would not call this an epic saga by any means, but I did enjoy this story and I'm looking forward to the next two books. This book handled angels and vampires and lycans a bit differently and kept me interested. This book builds the characters nicely for the next books and makes you interested in what happens with them - although I'm disappointed in the change of narrator.

    Once there were great magicians born to the Maghuin Dhonn, the folk of the Brown Bear, the oldest tribe in Alba. But generations ago, the greatest of them all broke a sacred oath sworn in the name of all his people. Now, only small gifts remain to them. Through her lineage, Moirin possesses such gifts---the ability to summon the twilight and conceal herself, and the skill to coax plants to grow.

    Would you try another book from Jacqueline Carey and/or Anne Flosnik?

    Oh definitely! I love most of Jacqueline Carey's writings, and I think Anne Flosnik is an excellent narrator.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I can't really answer that, changing one thing would change too many others.


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    I like her separation of the characters. She gives each character their own "voice" and that doesn't just mean the voice tone. She brings accents, accentuation, and style to each character that really brings the story alive.


    Could you see Naamah's Kiss being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.
