    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    This book is so good it hurts. The story is so engaging and told so well that one has to hold on, white knuckled, until the end.

    Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She survived, saved by a stranger who witnessed her undergo a physical transformation. That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body. Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book was boring. She never really learned anything and never really illicited any empathy from me. Also the narration was unmoving. She barely emotes any emotion. I found myself listening on fast forward just so that I could get to the end.

    Ree Reyes’s life was easier when all she had to worry about was scraping together tips from her gig as a barista and comic shop slave to pursue her ambitions as a screenwriter. When a scruffy-looking guy storms into the shop looking for a comic like his life depends on it, Ree writes it off as just another day in the land of the geeks. Until a gigantic “BOOM!” echoes from the alley a minute later, and Ree follows the rabbit hole down into her town’s magical flip-side.

    Would you try another book from Michael R. Underwood and/or Julia Farhat?

    This book was just ok. I had to speed up the narrator because she spoke soo slooowly. If there was a rating, I would set it to, meh and shrug.

    Would you try another book from Jeanne C. Stein and/or Dina Pearlman?

    I've read all of the Anna Strong Books.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeanne C. Stein again?

    After this I don't know


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dina Pearlman’s performances?

    No, she sounds like an old person reading the newspaper


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The rest of the series is great, except for the narrator. This book was unnecessary as an ending.

    You Slay Me is a lusty romance novel with amusing supernatural undercurrents. When courier Aisling Grey is dispatched to Paris to deliver a priceless dragon statue to a rich and eccentric female collector, she finds the intended recipient the apparent victim of a demonic ritual. And that's just the beginning of Aisling's discoveries.

    I like the book, but the narrator sounds like she is sucking on a cough drop. I dunno, but something was making mouth noises. Overall, good story, beware the mouth noise.
