    Alex Cooper awakens one morning to news of her own brutal murder. Soon, Manhattan's top sex-crimes prosecutor discovers that the actual victim is film star Isabella Lascar, who had sought refuge at Alex's private retreat. Now it is up to Alex to find the killer before another victim surfaces.

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator is a bit irritating at first but after a while you don't even notice it. Good book, I figured out who did it early on, but I don't think it was the writing at all. It was pretty good book

    The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case.

    My local book store, Murder by the book recommended this book to me and I have to say It was excellent. I was hooked from the very beginning and it kept me hooked through the whole book. It was one of those books you start listening to and don't want to stop. There were a few twists that I did not see coming and that made it all the better. An excellent book. The only problem is now I have to wait for the 2nd one to come out. Glad I found this author.

    Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O'Hare. Together they'll go undercover to swindle and catch the world's most wanted - and untouchable - criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency.

    The first book in an original mystery series featuring 28-year-old Veronica Mars, back in action after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    I was skeptical about a book that continued a series and movie but this book was amazing and the thing that made it great was that Kristen Bell actually reading the book. It's just like watching a show but it's a book. And an amazing book at that. I am going to listen to it again right before the next one comes out. I hope Rob Thomas makes this a continuing thing. I love these books!!!

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    What made the experience of listening to Allegiant the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the two speakers


    Would you recommend Allegiant to your friends? Why or why not?

    no the first two books were amazing but it's like the third book needed an ending and the author just came up with one. It does not make sense at all and I can't even finish it.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, they were as good as always


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

    Yes, ***SPOILER ALERT***. The ending did not have to happen that way and I hate authors that do that.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    What other book might you compare Soulless to and why?

    a mixture of janet evanovich and the twilight series


    Have you listened to any of Emily Gray???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    not that I know of


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

    made me laugh out loud

    This book was fantastic and I am so sad to see the series come to an end.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Michael says: "Mr Moore does it again."
    "This was one of the best books ever"

    As long as you don't mind the "F" bomb every other word and lots of sexual humor, this is the book for you. I laughed out loud so many times, I scared my dogs.

    I forgot how wonderful this book was. I am so glad that Audible decided to get it. I only hope they get the 2nd one Seize the Night. It's even better the 2nd time I read it.
