    Story
    (26)

    Hosted by the Contessa della Trieste, an opulent Carnevale ball in Venice takes a terrifying turn for American book critic Jordan Riley. As festivity turns into frenzy, Jordan is rescued by a powerful man disguised as a wolf. But was the mayhem she witnessed - the blood, the fangs, the screams - truly just entertainment, or something far more sinister?

    What disappointed you about Deep Midnight?

    CHARACTERS WERE UNAPPEALING & INCONSISTENT. STORY STRUCTURE WAS CHOPPY AND THE FLASHBACKS DID NOT HELP THE STORY LINE ...ONLY FILLED MORE PAGES.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    It will be a long while before I am willing to spend time on another story by this author.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

    Yes...her voice was the only good feature.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deep Midnight?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    One can only hope it was a shadow writer that can be fired. I have read other books by this author and find this story a severe disappointment.

    Story
    (7)

    He's a wolf… She's a jaguar…Raphael is a former agent of the shape shifter secret police, forced into retirement after a very public scandal. Now he's assigned to help the victim of a hideous crime - a woman who has been attacked by a serial killer, and accidentally turned into a were-jaguar.

    Worse yet, Catherine turns out to be Raphael's fated mate. But the serial killer is still on her trail, and perhaps even worse, Raphael's pack wants her dead.

    Barbara says: "TERRIBLE NARRATOR gets in way of good story!"

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

    Sorry, can not recommend to a friend because of the truely horrendous narration. But I will recommend the printed versions as the story was very enjoyable by itself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had complexity, good character development and an interesting romantic story line.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Epstein?

    I almost want to say anyone. His voices are awful and distract from enjoying the story. What a horrible mistake to have him do the whole series. It will impact on the purchase of further books in this series.


    Was Howling Moon worth the listening time?

    It was a struggle to finish even though the story was very good. Will not listen to another with this narrator.

    Story

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    "Best in Series but can stand alone"

    Would you listen to Affliction again? Why?

    Will listen again. It has almost all of the central chacters...the story is superb...action is great balancing with character development. Not a shorter tease like some of past books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You get to meet Micah's family...a unique experience!


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

    Always Anita but there was more time spent with Nicky that enriched his character.


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

    And there will be so much more to come...thank goodness!
