    The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future. Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders...and six lives will be changed forever.

    Get ready to lose yourself inside the enchanted world of Galdrilene, full of magic, dragons and engaging characters.

    I am not a lover of fantasy books, however, this audio version captivated me from the minute I began to listen. The narrator does a fantastic job of bringing to life all the characters and describes the make-believe world in such a fashion that you can’t help but find yourself immersed inside the story.

    A land full of people of who for the last 500 hundred years, have been taught lies about their world, handed down from the ruling powers, bent on keeping the knowledge of magic and dragons hidden. Magic is forbidden and punishable by death and the fear of going insane if magic is used or cultivated by a user is drilled into the minds of the masses.

    But six people from various regions cannot quell the hum that pounds in their heads. A pull to head east gnaws at them though none of them understand why or where it comes from. It isn’t until the appearance of a strange woman who offers each of them a chance to journey with her that they will all understand what calls to them, and why.

    Full of vivid descriptions and enjoyable dialogue, this book by A.D. Trosper will appeal to lovers of fantasy as well as those who normally don’t read (or listen) to this particular genre. I found myself eager to be in the car listening to the magical tale unfold.

    The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be set free. Twenty years ago, Blondell O’Henry was convicted of murdering her eldest daughter and wounding her two other children. The prosecution argued that beautiful, selfish Blondell wanted to be rid of them to be with her lover. Now Blondell’s son, Niall, has recanted his testimony and demolished the case in the process. Reporter Nikki Gillette is determined to get the true story, and not just for professional reasons. Blondell’s murdered daughter, Amity, was Nikki’s childhood friend.

    Where does Tell Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top. Lisa Jackson is one of my favorite authors and the narrator brought the story to life perfectly.


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

    I loved the addition of the prison interviews. The reader had the chance to see inside the mind of the woman behind bars. What was going on in her head while being interviewed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The climactic ending! I was driving home and noticed my speed was increasing with each sentence. Next time I listen to another Lisa Jackson bestseller, I will do so while walking around the block.


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

    A few of the less than stellar characters made me angry enough that, if they were real and close to me, I would enjoy giving them a punch in the throat.
