    Economies have fallen, freedom has been suppressed, and peace is a distant memory. The world is falling apart. Joshua Jordan's protege Ethan March, along with Jimmy Louder and Rivka Reuban have been left behind in a world that is rapidly coming under the complete influence of the Antichrist. Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, with BID-Tag implants, robotic police units, and drone-bots flying overhead...all designed to control and dominate those who resist the Antichrist's reign of evil.

    What disappointed you about Mark of Evil?

    I just got this today and listened while working. I was looking forward to this book because I listened to the first three, I had it pre-ordered and did not realize they changed the narrator. So at first I was disappointed but rather than be a snob - I kept listening. It just gets worse! I have listened to hundreds of books, his narration style is so slow and irritating you can't even follow the story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The narration just kills the story.


    What didn’t you like about Daniel Butler’s performance?

    His accent is not for this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can't get past the bad narration, somebody please tell them they blew it by changing the narrator.

    The newest novel from #1 New York Times best-selling author and "queen of royal fiction" (USA Today) Philippa Gregory tells the passionate story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, who gets caught in the middle of a battle for the crown of England. A princess from birth, Elizabeth fell in love with Richard III, though her mother made an arranged betrothal for her with the pretender to the throne: Henry Tudor. When Henry defeats Richard against all odds, Elizabeth has to marry the man who murdered her lover in battle.

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

    If you have listened to the series and you enjoyed it you will like this book. Do not be scared off by the horrible reviews. Yes "THE BOY" thing is annoying and Henry is portrayed as a selfish crackpot but that is at the end.


    What other book might you compare The White Princess to and why?

    I would compare this to "The Kingmakers Daughter" she is kind of an ambitious "victim" too.


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

    I really enjoy the continuity in the series of her reading. Well done, she make these interesting.


    If you could take any character from The White Princess out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elizabeth Woodville the Queen Mother.


    Any additional comments?

    This book will get you looking up the history of the family!

    Spencer Grant had no idea what drew him to the bar with the red door. He thought he would just sit down, have a slow beer or two, and talk to a stranger. He couldn't know that it would lead to a narrow escape from a bungalow targeted by a SWAT team. Or that it would leave him a wanted man. Now he is on the run from mysterious and ruthless men. He is in love with a woman he knows next to nothing about. And he is hiding from a past he can't fully remember.

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

    No, Koontz has other books that are much better


    If you’ve listened to books by Dean Koontz before, how does this one compare?

    This one is on the low end


    What three words best describe Anthony Heald’s voice?

    She was okay


    Do you think Dark Rivers of the Heart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this book is boring to a degree


    Any additional comments?

    This book just goes on and on plus the pervs make it gross.
    I have listened to almost every Koontz book. My favorites would be Watchers, Lightening, Seize the Night, Fear Nothing, Velocity, Life Expectancy, From the Corner of His Eye, The Bad Place, The Face, Trixie the Big Life of a Little Dog, The Husband, By the Light of the Moon just to name a few

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Did The Harbinger inspire you to do anything?

    YES REPENT!


    Any additional comments?

    This is an amazing relevant prophetic book. The information is on point with Biblical accuracy yet he would of benefited from an experienced writer editing the dialogue and brainstorming a more interesting framework for the story. The conversations sound like...you mean what do the conversations sound like...they sound like this. Do you mean they sound like this. Yes, they sound like this. Very juvenile and annoying.

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

    I have listened to all of Frank Peretti's novels, this is right along the line of them. It is riveting and if you are a fan - you will like this book


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting part of this story is the use of physics, linear time and space. It attempts to show we live in a larger picture.

    The least interesting part is how the book tries to explain it. The characters are unable to communicate the principle in a precise manor. That lack of clarity, could cause an uninformed person to think the book is fantasy/occult rather than actually relating to unexplored science and Christian worldviews. It could of been sharpened by mentioning some of the time travel in the Bible. For instance, Enoch - the transfiguration the return of Christ.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Peretti – was your favorite?

    He did a good job.
