    After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy, and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

    This was a great way to end the series and I really enjoyed it! I wouldnt advise listening to the last hour in the car while driving though. Maybe Im too emotional, but I ended up crying like an idiot, and all the people stuck in rush hour around me must have thought I was nuts! lol

    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Darker?

    The characters, the writing, the storyline, the length


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    no


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

    She is fine


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

    boredom


    Any additional comments?

    It baffles me as to how this has become a bestselling series. Its just so damn boring. The author clearly has no idea how to build suspense or sustain a storyline, its all just minor conflicts and then too much sex. I was so bored after awhile I couldn't concentrate.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "Very disappointed"
    Overall

    I have loved the Outlander series so far, and even got a recorded books account just to listen to the unabridged two books that aren't on audible. I was extremely disappointed in this book. There were way too many characters that should either have their own series or be left out completely (Lord John already has his own series, we don't need to hear from him for half of this book too). And in the end almost nothing was tied up, so we are left completely hanging (unlike the other books, where the story lines were more completed). So now I guess we have to wait a long time for her to write another incredibly long book, where hopefully we wont be left hanging again.

    He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

    Karen says: "a little odd"
    "Fever is right"
    Overall

    The series is absolutely correctly named, as reading them leaves me feverish and wanting more. I have read each of these books more than once, and can't wait for the final book in the series to come out.

    Sweeping and accessible, The Ruin of the Roman Empire captures the richness of late antique life and the colorful characters of the age, while offering insight into today's debates about barbarism, religion, empires, and their threatened borders.

    Overall

    Very dry and boring. And I thought it skipped around a little too much. I have always loved learning about ancient history, and as a Classics major in college I spent 4 years in boring lectures, but this was just too much for me.
