    Would you listen to Dark Needs at Night's Edge again? Why?

    Yes, just because I love the interaction of the Valkyries.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kresley Cole before, how does this one compare?

    I prefer the Growly Werewolves to the Vampires, but this one is a good entry in the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with the Valkyries.


    Any additional comments?

    Please please please produced these faster with Mr. Petkoff as the narrator!

    No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible....

    What did you like best about this story?

    What about MacLeod Andrews and Tara Sands ’s performance did you like?

    Teen love with issues.

    Where does Dark Desires After Dusk rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Out of all the IAD series, this is the one that I have loved the most so far.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The struggle the Hero had about what to do with his female vs. saving his brother's kingdom. His inner monologue was both touching and hilarious at the same time.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    Caedon Woede...I want a South African accented Rage Demon for my own.


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

    Romancing the Stone meets Supernatural


    Any additional comments?

    The series needs to be produced faster, with Mr. Petkoff narrating. He is phenomoninal!

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the authors pulled in multiple points of view to give the reader of a vastly divergent experience from the major players involved.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    What wasn't to like? His performance made me feel like I was listening to a multiple cast recording rather than a single narrator.

    Would you listen to Mistletoe and Margaritas again? Why?

    Yes. I love friends to lovers stories, and the narrator did a wonderful job.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Shannon Stacey? Why or why not?

    Yes, as I hope the characters would be more fleshed out in a longer novel.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Rich, deep baritone. His male characters had distinctive voices. His female characters I didn't hate, though they weren't feminine enough. I can over look that with a wonderful masculine narrator though.

    Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You've never heard of them, have you? These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.

    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    What's NOT to love about Mr. Pinchot's performance?!? His voices and narration kept me laughing out loud in some of the most inappropriate listening areas.


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

    The ending when the Princes visited Rapunzel.

    My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.
