    Beth Raymer arrived in Las Vegas in 2001, hoping to land a job as a cocktail waitress at one of the big casinos. In the meantime, she lived in a $17-a-night motel with her dog, Otis, and waited tables at a low-rent Thai restaurant. One day, one of her regular customers told her about a job she thought Beth would be perfect for and sent her to see Dink, of Dink Inc. Dink was a professional sports gambler looking for a right-hand man. She got the job.

    Story

    I normally stick to the few of my favorite authors but for once I decided to take a chance after hearing the little sound byte preview. I was blown away at the in-depth descriptiveness in the writing that Beth Raymer provides. I was immediately taken along with her as she basically, ???wings??? it in the high stress area of sports betting. I cannot wait for her to write another book. Thank you Beth!

    Gin Blanco is hard-nosed, sexy, and lethal. Nicknamed "The Spider," she's a stone elemental assassin who brings her unique mix of magic and tact to every assignment, no matter the target. There's a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name "Burn" sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight…

    Where does Poison Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That is a hard question, simply due to the amount of a-books I have (over 380). I can say that it is up in the upper 20%


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gin (like the liquor) does not disappoint. The story with its subplots moves right along. I like how the author is able to keep her story lines fresh using the same characters. This is very smart writing and I am already waiting for the next release.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    She has a southern drawl down part, living in New England for the first part of my life then spending the last 30 years on the west coast of FL I've heard my share of accents. She can bring a character to life with the little nuances.

    Where does Midnight Alley rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up in the top 100. Please remember I own over 600 audiobooks


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    Even though Shane has to be my least fav. character she does him well


    Any additional comments?

    Well it's an over all good series, but if I have to say "Don't do that!" one more time I'm ripping my ears off.
    Scene 1"Hey look! A dark scary room, let's not go in there!" Scene 2 Oh let's go in that room because we totally forgot what we said 3 minutes ago. Again!

    Things that make me say AAAggghhh for 100 Alex.

    What did you love best about Murder of Crows?

    This is a wonderfully written book. It moves right along without missing or skipping over any part of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything, I wish the next part was out already.


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

    Alexandra is spot on with this story. Understandably she has some difficulty with baritones but that is part of brilliantly spoken story.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    I gave this book a chance and did not write a review until I heard to whole thing. I now have to go buy the book so I can read it the way James Marsters would have. It would have to be one of the more important stories that this would have to happen to. I really enjoyed the writing but I am having a HARD time getting through the reader. It was a BAD choice. The man is a competent actor but he obviously does not know the story and how ???Dresden??? acts. If the powers to be, chose to use him again instead of James Marsters, I WILL no longer follow the story. Perhaps go so far as to no longer use Audible.com although I will be checking out the new series that James Marsters is doing, simply because he can act out a story with his voice and not minimally read it.
    It would have been better (scratching my head) to have waited for James Marsters to be available and put out first-class products then to do this. This is so frustrating to wait for this book, with such a cliffhanger, and to be given such great work in such an unfortunate way. Please, Please, Please is there someone out there with some money that can pay James Marsters to read this story and have them put it out so we can have ???Harry??? back! I am simply appalled.

  • Blood Noir: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Book 16

    Jason Schuyler is a werewolf. He's also one of Anita Blake's best friends, and sometimes her lover. And right now he needs her - not to be a vampire hunter, or a federal marshal, or a necromancer, or even for her rank in the werewolf pack, but because his father is dying. He needs Anita because she's a pretty woman who loves him, who can make him look like an everyday guy.

    Katheryne says: "Zero stars"
    "Fresh Meat for my ears..."
    Overall

    L. K. Hamilton has been able to keep Anita Blake interesting and constantly flowing into a new plateau and beyond to the next. She has a knack of involving new personalities and showing new sides to older characters in a refreshing way that keeps such series from getting monotonous. She steps out and away from the past few books and focuses on just a few characters in this novel. Anita gets down and dirty in this book; Hamilton delves deep into each ones psyche in Blood Noir, pushes her way through and pulls no punches. This is one of my top choices from this series.
