    The Federal Reserve has never been robbed. FBI Special Agent Jack Miller, pulled into a high-profile case to mentor a new agent, finds himself in a clash with the toughest opponent of his career. The chase culminates in the bowels of the city, in the storm sewers and tunnels beneath The Ninth District Federal Reserve of Minneapolis.

    Story

    I really enjoyed The Ninth District. FBI agents Jack Miller and his rookie partner Ross "Junior" Fruen (?sp) are investigating a series of bank robberies. The clues lead them to the fact that someone is going to rob the Ninth District Federal Reserve. The story is fast paced and moves along without a hitch. I enjoyed finding out about areas of Minneapolis that I didn't know about. The narrator gave a nice performance and I would recommend this story to friends and family.

    The great cataclysm wiped almost all life from the face of planet Earth, but tiny pockets of survivors crawled from the ashes, with only one thought: survival, at any cost. But not all survivors were human. In the dark, militant society that has risen in the aftermath, vampires, once thought to be mythical, have been assimilated and enslaved. Used for blood sport their lives are allowed to continue only for the entertainment of the masses.

    If you could sum up Dissension in three words, what would they be?

    vampires, dystopia and species struggles


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mira ~ she was someone who was strong and knows how to play the game. She is a rebel trying to find her way to freedom.


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

    At a little over 4 hours, I would say that this would make a great lazy day listen. Ms. Kelly has a way of drawing you into the story and makes you want to keep listening. I am a fan of Ms. Kelly's work and she doesn't disappoint here.


    Any additional comments?

    Dissension is the first in a new series of books set in the future. After a great cataclysm destroys much of the Earth's population few people remain. The ones who do are now sharing resources with vampires who up until this point have kept themselves hidden. With the help of the vampires, humans are able to get back on their feet. Once that happens tho, the humans then turn the tables and enslave the vampires making some of the stronger ones fight for public spectacle as gladiators.

    Mira is one such gladiator. She has the desire to be free and tries to escape any chance she gets. A chance meeting with the local Regent Lucian Stavros puts her in a position to help change the plight of the vampires. Will it all work out? Don't know as we have to wait for the next book to see what happens.

    I look forward to listening to the next book when it becomes available. I would classify this as a YA/New Adult novel based on some of the fighting and violence.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Mia the best. She was thrown into a new situation and she was able to handle herself.


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

    I am a frequent listener of Ms. Kelly's work. I feel that she does well with many genres and absolutely shines in the romance genre. I always look forward to listening to her work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dominic realized that he truly cared for Mia. It was during that tense scene that you could see the light bulb 'click'.


    Any additional comments?

    Alpha Wolf's Pet, Hidden is a well thought out story. Its story line sets up this book to be the beginning of series. I look forward to seeing if this happens.

    When PI Quint Mitchell volunteered to help with an archaeological survey in St. Augustine, he didn't count on digging up a murder victim. In the nation's oldest city, Mitchell discovers links to ancient sins, comes face to face with his own past, and unleashes powerful forces that will do anything to keep their secrets--even if it means taking his life.

    What did you love best about Matanzas Bay?

    I liked the way the author was able to give some of Saint Augustine's history along with the story. Having one of the main characters being an archaeologist really helped with the telling of this story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I was very interested in seeing how the story played out. There were some plot twists that I didn't see coming (and one that I kind of did) and that made for an interesting story. Mr. Francis wrote a great mystery.


    What about Mike Dennis’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Dennis has a great way of giving each character their own voice. That along with great pacing made this for a very enjoyable listen.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I have listened to the previous 3 books in the Raveneau series and I enjoyed this one also. The story has jumped about 90 years from the last book so we have moved into the early 1900's. I liked how, while we have moved ahead, we also learned some more about the characters that we have come to love in the earlier books. I liked hearing about Andre, Devon, Nathan and especially Adrienne.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Adam took Cathy on their adventure to search for the treasure.


    Any additional comments?

    The Tempest is a nice addition to the Raveneau family saga. While I'm not the biggest fan of historical romance stories Ms. Wright has done a wonderful job of keeping my interest thru out the entire series. I enjoyed the spirited independence of Cathy once she realized that she had a voice. I liked her way of standing up for herself against her controlling mother. I think Cathy is ahead of her time.

    Ms. Beresford has made this series a joy to listen to. She has consistently kept my attention through out. I would love to hear what comes next for the Raveneaus.

    Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm), is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.

    Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex.

    I liked Lady Thomasina. She was an eccentric old lady that made you root for her. Ms. Beresford continues to impress me as a gifted narrator. She makes the story come to life. I will continue to search out her work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Nathan and Adrienne realized that they are meant for each other. I loved their story.


    Any additional comments?

    His Reckless Bargain continues the saga of the Raveneau family. Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre and Devon, is a sea captain that is spending some time in London. After an chance meeting with a family friend, he agrees to watch over his independent minded daughter Adrienne. This starts an adventure that will eventually take Nathan and Adrienne to Barbados.

    I love the adventure in this story and the continuing saga of the Raveneaus. I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy historical romance and adventure.

    As a fan of Ms. Beresford's I have found her work to be consistently good. She has a flair for accents and the ability to give each character their own unique traits.


    Any additional comments?

    Surrender the Stars continues the Raveneau family saga. This time the story is centered on Lindsey Raveneau the youngest of Andre and Devon Raveneau's children. As a young school teacher, Lindsey's life is centered around books and therefore she isn't a 'lady about town'. This all changes when the senior Raveneaus are asked by the President to go to London to see who might be giving away the American's war secrets to the British. Helping out in this endeavor is sea captain Ryan Coleraine, one of Andre's ship's captains. By impersonating Nathan Raveneau, Ryan is able to get into the inner circles of London and gather information.

    This is a book that I would listen to again and would recommend to others.

    I am a great fan of Ms. Beresford and this is one of her best. I like the way that she makes each character unique with their own voice, accent and pacing. She really brings a book to life.

    Ms. Wright is a gifted author bringing the colonial time to life interweaving a fictional love story with real historical events. I must admit that while I'm not a fan of a historical romance per se, I was entertained and drawn in to the story by Ms. Wright's story and Ms. Beresford's narration.

    I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy a sweet romance.

    Hunter's Moon is the first in a 5 part series about the Arthurian legends and mixed with some paranormal ... vampires and the like. Victoria believes in and sees the Fae, something her mother and sister can't. After her sister is injured, Victoria is sent to live with her Aunt and Uncle, who are horrible people. As Victoria grows up, she finds that she has a connection to the Fae and we in turn see what happens when she is forced to summon them.

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

    One of the best. Ms. Benson's narration kept me in the story and I was wanting to see what happened next.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I was wondering what would happen next to Seychelle and especially Solange.


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

    The emotion that Ms. Benson brings to the story was amazing. I also enjoyed the Creole in the book. She made it sound real and not just a stereotype. I was wanting the story to go on.


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

    Yes, I was worried for Seychelle after leaving the Bimini Islands.


    Any additional comments?

    Seychelle Sullivan is a tug boat captain. While on a job to tow in a stranded boat, she comes across a small dingy afloat in the ocean. In the dingy is a small child and a dead woman. Seychelle is determined not to let the girl be sent back to Haiti. This is a face paced, suspenseful thriller with a light touch of romance thrown in.

    I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy a good solid mystery/thriller. I will definitely listen to more of both Ms. King's and Ms. Benson's work.
