    Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother.

    Would you listen to City of Heavenly Fire again? Why?

    I love these books but the narrators have been and are still HORRIBLE!! There are wonderful narrators available. Why can't this publisher hire them?? It sounds like amateurs reading a book out loud.

    I will not listen to any books listing these narrators. Better to read the books!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting concept and story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ?

    ANYONE BUT THE NARRATORS USED FOR THIS SERIES OF THESE BOOKS

  • First Grave on the Right: Charley Davidson, Book 1

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Ducky says: "GREAT 1ST BOOK IN A NEW-TO-ME, KEEPER SERIES!"

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    What did you like best about The Fiery Heart? What did you like least?

    I love the books and I've gotten very used to Emily Shaffer's narration. Why in the world did you use another voice with such a different inflection for Adrian. Leave well enough alone and please provide a redo of the narration for this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adrian is my favorite character and this narration ruined the experience for me.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Shaffer and Alden Ford ’s performance?

    All of a sudden Adrian no longer has a British accent and that great attitude so well narrated by Emily.
