New to the audiobook thing, but I like it! I'm a huge Stephen King fan... Along with the spy/military type books by Brad Thor, Vince Flynn

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a rough start.... But if you are willing to stick with it, it ends up being a pretty good story.


    Was Skinwalker worth the listening time?

    This was the first book I have listen to by Faith Hunter, usually when I come across a good series I can't stop at the first book. I'm on the fence whether or not to get the next book.

    How can she dare to imagine he loves her... when all London calls her The Ugly Duchess? Theodora Saxby is the last woman anyone expects the gorgeous James Ryburn, heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook, to marry. But after a romantic proposal before the prince himself, even practical Theo finds herself convinced of her soon-to-be duke's passion. Still, the tabloids give the marriage six months. Theo would have given it a lifetime... until she discovers that James desired not her heart, and certainly not her countenance, but her dowry.

    Would you listen to Haunted again? Why?

    Yes, I have the entire series and had to listen to them all right before this one came out. When I find a series I enjoy I will listen to it often, and this is one of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Ana continues to grow into her powers and into the person she will become. I truly have enjoyed all the different paths her life has taken through out each story, and am looking forward to the next story.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely, my husband got me hooked with her first book "Discovery of Witches". As soon as I finished it this one came out the next day.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is very detailed along with the characters. A lot of care was taken in the development of the story with all the detailed history built into it.


    Any additional comments?

    My only disappointment was that I have to wait for the next book. This is a great addition to anyone library. No matter what genre you like this is a must have.

    I have fell in Love with series, this book leaves you on the edge. I have just finished it and am starting the next book tonight. If you are thinking about starting this series you must start with the first book. They have a little of everything... Action, love, adventure, and something different at every turn. The narrator is great also.

    What made the experience of listening to Mercy Blade the most enjoyable?

    The narrator Khristine is great, she definitely makes the story happen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You just don't know what's going to happen, or what to expect. There are so many stories that are predictable, this one keeps you wondering.


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

    My first experience was with the first book in this series, I love her story telling abilities.


    Any additional comments?

    I am hooked on Jane Yellowrock, I have already down loaded the next book to start listen now.

    What did you love best about Blood Cross?

    Jane was fighting death at every turn. The story had a good pace, with lots of action.


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

    She does a great job with the different voices, and brings them to life for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I was unsure about whether I liked this series when I finished the first book. But I'm so glad that I decided to get the second, I could not put it down. I have definitely become a fan of both Faith and Khristine, can't wait to start the next book. My only complaint is that it is PG-13, I would like it a little bit more steamy.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Like all of Molly's books, it's fun and a breath of fresh air. I didn't want the story to end. The characters inner monologs are always a hoot, you never know what she's going to say.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I love listening to Amanda Ronconi, she brings the characters to life. I especially like how she has done all of Molly's books. Can't wait for the next they do together


    Do you have any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed this book you must listen to the rest of Molly Harpers collection, they will make you laugh your ass off and you will listen to them over and over again.

For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.
