    On the far side of the world, deep in former Soviet Central Asia, lies a stronghold called the Crossroads. It is run with an iron fist by a brutal warlord calling himself Sala Jihan. He is far more than a petty dictator, for Jihan holds the fate of nations in his grasp. To save a world slipping into chaos, Jihan must either fall or be controlled.

    I never would have thought I'd enjoy a series like this. Based on the premise, it sounds like a 'guy' book. I love Larry Correia's writing though, so I thought I'd give the Dead Six books a listen. The character development, story, descriptions, and narration are PHENOMENAL!! I LOVE these books!! It's like the best action movie EVER unfolding in your head. Also, Balki (Bronson Pinchot) is quite possibly the most fantastic audiobook narrator in history. More Dead Six books please!!

It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life.

    The narrator is quite talented, but her faux French accent was a little annoying in this. That's my only real complaint. I enjoyed this story, but not quite as much as the first in the series. I think it had to do with the accent that annoyed me, but I'm a weirdo in that sense. :)

    I didn't know what to expect when I chose this book, but I thought the plot sounded interesting. After listening to it, I have to say this is the most clever twist on Cinderella I've ever heard! I really liked the futuristic setting, and the narrator did a great job of conveying all the different emotions. Listening to the 2nd book in the series already! Can't wait to find out what happens to Cinder!

    Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station---and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I couldn't "like" the main character so the whole story was kind of a let down for me. I love supernatural stories especially with the characters being set in normal society, but Kitty was just kind of a wuss to me. I couldn't finish the book cause I got frustrated waiting for her to not be such a sissy.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a terrible story, but it's not up to par with other books in this genre that I enjoy. It was too much "real life and feeeeeelings" and not enough "I'm a werewolf and can eat your face off"
