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

    It was ok and had some interesting story line to make you want to follow what happens I thing Beautiful Bastard was much better, but in this book the characters from that book are also in this one so there is carry over.

    In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    If you could sum up The Witch with No Name in three words, what would they be?

    Best ever ending to a series.....!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachel, with out a doubt, Jinx, and Al. The whole cast of characters are wonderful, if you've been following the series like I have since the start. Still my favorite three.


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

    Marguerite Gavin has been the voice of this series since the start. I love the way she's able to go from one character to another and you know who's speaking. Especially Jinx, Al and Ivy. She does an amazing job.


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

    I had many feelings about this book, for many reasons. 1st that it's the last book in the series and I truly will miss many of the characters. However so many series have gone on too long and when it came to ending them they were a major disappointment. Kim Harrison did a great job on this final episode and I know that I will listen to the entire series again over the next few years. So many scenes left me emotional about the characters, but the beauty of this final chapter of Rachel Morgan is it has a wonderful ending.....Any fan who's listened this far, you must add to your collection. .


    Any additional comments?

    I've enjoyed every book in this series and each one has gotten better. If Ms Harrison writes another about this "Witchy Witch" sometime in the future, I'm sure it too will be wonderful and I hope Marguerite Gavin does the narration. Way to go Harrison and Gavin. :)

    Would you listen to Change of Pace again? Why?

    Yes, I love all types of erotica, kinky, straight, gay, lesbian. Radclyffe writes great lesbian erotica, this is a group of her short stories that are all excellent. There are some better than others but in fact I really did enjoy every one. (some are really HOT)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a book of short stories so there isn't one character


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Many, it's hard to pick one but the last thee stories which link together Clinical Trial 1,2,3. Really was great


    Any additional comments?

    If you're into this genre this is not only loaded with great stories but Alexandra Wilde, is fantastic at narration. I've listened to her narrate several erotica books and she really get's into the emotion and passion of the characters. GREAT Narrator for this book. I usually check to see who is narrating certain erotica and Ms Wilde is one of the best.

    Would you listen to Rhythm and Bluegrass again? Why?

    I've listened to every Molly Harper audio book I have several times. I know I'll listen to this again. I don't know how she comes up with these bizarre story lines, but they are funny and always have an unusual twist. This BlueGrass series is fun. Jane Jamison, and Naked Werewolf, I've listened to them all several times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You get to know Bonnie and her background, but you still have the other characters from the first book in this story. I really did enjoy it and looking forward to listening to the next in the series.


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

    I've listened to Amanda Ronconi narrate all of Molly Harper's books and she is a natural. But I've listened to her narrate other books as well. She is a natural talent


    Who was the most memorable character of Rhythm and Bluegrass and why?

    Well this book is about Bonnie but there are so many people that are memorable in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the quirky story lines that Molly Harper comes up with. Looking forward to the third book in this series. I just wished this one was a bit longer but it was still worth it to listen to.

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

    Absolutely as a big Mercy Thompson fan this group of stories is a must.


    Any additional comments?

    Great collection of stories, however I would recommend that you check to make sure you don't own any of the short stories in different versions. I have to say that Audible did a nice job of listing the titles so you can figure out if you have already listened to in a previous book. IE; Alpha and Omega, for example is sold as a separate book. Many new stories that I never heard before and that was really good

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

    Very much so. I am not a big follower of the Joann Walker series, although I've listened to approximately three of the books. I have listened to all the Jane Yellowrock series and together they made a really good team in this story. I know I'll listen to again....


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the two women found each other and recognized the power that each had. How they knew how to work together so beautifully even though they had never seen or heard of each other before that day.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the beginning of the book where Jane and Jo come across a daemon, and Jane turns to her Beast and kills it. Jo finds that she can talk to Beast in her mind and to Jane. They come to an understanding that at some points are quite amusing.


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

    Jane and Jo meet a god


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see more like this, short novellas that have a beginning and an end. Not making it a series, but knowing the characters and what who they are and not sure how they would interact was really enjoyable.

There's a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name "Burn" sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight…

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

    I've followed this series since it started. Some of the books were kind of weak, and I didn't enjoy. Out of the 11, I returned two because the story line annoyed me, and I thought Gin was made to look stupid. This one was really good. Had many twists and turns and showed Gin's growth as a person and maybe it makes her weaker because she cares so much about those close to her, but it makes her stronger because of the bond she feels. I really think this was the best in the series so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gin of course. The way she interacts with her friends and relations, her growth and strength from learning to care and go the extra mile for the sake of being true to her feelings, and for what is right. (However she's still not afraid to kick some butt to show that she's still has it)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several, but the best was at the end when she meets the daughter of her nemesis M. Monroe.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to how Jennifer Estep will continue this story with this new group of villains, who are all related to Gin's past. They seem to be stronger and more powerful than the old ones, and I'm afraid that some of the people Gin knows will be eliminated in the next few installments. It was promised in this one and the only way to continue the story would be to make it happen. Who will be eliminated, or tortured by Gin's enemies? We'll have to wait and see.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Festive in Death to be better than the print version?

    Never read any of the print versions, only audio.


    What other book might you compare Festive in Death to and why?

    Since this is a series, I can only say each of the characters, especially Eve, has grown and matured in many ways since the start of this series. Since this is book number 39, a lot of situations and characters have had many things happen.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Ericksen is the voice of the "In Death" series. I can't imagine any other narrator doing this series. I've enjoyed every one of her narrations in this series. This was one of the best stories in my opinion. Touched on many issues with Eve's past (as always) since she had such a horrid childhood, which made her the "Cop" she is now.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that the characters continue to mature and grow as they have. Truly this book was one of my favorites in this series. Thank you Nora Roberts, aka J.D. Robb

She realizes he's hitting on her and she say's I have bra's that are older than you. I laughed so hard. Some funny moment and some touching ones.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    What did you love best about Shattered?

    Brought in new character, loved the old guy trying to get used to 2000 years of progress in just a few weeks.....but he's a druid, so it flies. People were complaining about too many characters to follow. I had no problem. The story was twisted and in the end you find out some things that I guess will take us into the next book. But it was pretty awesome


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always love Oboron the dog. He keeps everything real. REALLY.


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

    Yes, I love his narrations, he does voices and emotions wonderfully. One of my favorites is "600 hours of Edward" When I see him as narrator I always check out what the book is about.


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

    Actually I did it was the 4th weekend and I listened straight through with a few breaks for food and other breaks. Didn't want to let go until I knew what would happen.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book and I hope Luke Daniels Narrates that as well he's wonderful.

She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

    Amanda Ronconi is amazing, She did all the characters really great, sometimes I think she does the villeins too well.

    I did, I stayed up until it got to the very end. Couldn't help myself, I'm hooked on Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see what Molly Harper comes up with next. She's great with supernatural stories, and she really makes you laugh out loud at some of the situations.
