    Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom - all because of a reckless bargain her father struck. And since birth, she has been training to kill him. Betrayed by her family yet bound to obey, Nyx rails against her fate. Still, on her 17th birthday, she abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, disarm him, and break the 900-year-old curse he put on her people. But Ignifex is not what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle - a shifting maze of magical rooms - enthralls her.

  • Gardens of the Moon: The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Book 1

    The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting, and bloody confrontations with ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen’s rule remains absolute, enforced by her dreaded Claw assassins. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, their lone surviving mage, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities, yet holds out.

    What aspect of Ralph Lister’s performance would you have changed?

    I don't think changing his performance would of made a difference. This book is just very complicate.


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't a book where you can listen to while driving, cleaning, or doing other activities. Every sentence is important so if you passively listen, it will confuse you later on. You have to really give it your full attention, or you'll have to keep rewinding it to catch back on.

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

    At the very top! My number one favorite book!


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    I love how he changes his voice and keeps it the same throughout each short story. He's very consistent, and gives life to all the characters.
