    This Christmas isn't so merry for Toni. Her best friend's been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacked by vampires, and the only way for Toni to get her out is to prove that bloodsuckers really do exist. So she's taken a job as a bodyguard for the Undead, but she gets more than she bargained for, especially when she meets Ian MacPhie, a Scottish rascal looking for Ms. Right.

    Would you try another book from Kerrelyn Sparks and/or Coleen Marlo?

    The story itself was just so-so, but the reader was reasonable. I would be persueded to try another book by the reader before I would buy a book by the author. Author was too repetitive with the dialog - couldn't get past that.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable


    What three words best describe Coleen Marlo’s performance?

    Needs more energy


    Did All I Want for Christmas Is a Vampire inspire you to do anything?

    no

  • The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break: A Novel

    Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.

    Cathy says: "Full of surprises, delightfully unexpected"

    Story

    I thought the narration was great and would listen to more books by Graham. The story was very different, with great detail about a small slice in the life of the Minotaur in modern times. I would only say I expected a different ending and frankly have not decided how I feel about it - not necessarily a bad thing - I just had a very different ending imagined.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    Last book and this book have been a disappointing time vampire. After book 3, I had looked forward to more plot twists and reasonable story movement. Instead, separation of characters so completely from each other that I felt the momentum was completely lost. Who edits these books and where were they?

He says he can bring her wolf, but she'll have to submit to him in ways she never imagined. Their union is rough and savage - Jackson is a wolf on a mission: He will make her howl...one way or another.

    Would you try another book from Michelle Fox and/or Rose Caraway?

    No way.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rose Caraway’s performances?

    Definately not - horrible reader. No effort put into trying to sound passionate or like it was more than a 50minute paid gig. If audible is going to pay for narration in this genre, find somebody who at least is a good voice actor!!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    run away from this narrator and author.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Shadowfever the most enjoyable?

    Actor's voices matched their characters and they were very expressive - seemed like they actually read the story before being asked to perform it out loud. Very believable interplay between MacKayla and Jericho - caught the humor and nuance beautifully. When they argued I swear you'd think you were listening to a real couple!! Others I have listened to have sounded wooden and can't even read sarcasm correctly! Natalie and Phil must have also had superior direction.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Jericho and MacKayla.


    What does Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They make the relationship seem real - again, I love their interplay - they really capture a lot of what couples go through when they are finding themselves getting deeper into a relationship that they aren't quite sure they want or that can't be denied due to underlying passion - the kind you don't think is really good for you!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't know - so hard to get it down to one line.

    As Druids, Sidhe Seers, Unseelie and Seelie alike are locked in battle to control "the book", can the mysterious Jericho Barrons perform the impossible and seduce Priya struck MacKayla back from the brink of insanity, in time to save the world and in so doing , himself?


    Any additional comments?

    I think the series is one of the best I have read in a long time with great story line, fantastic imaginative monsters, and great tension between Jericho and MacKayla. I liked the witty repartee , arguments and regular conversations and of course the sex scenes. The series kept you guessing even though I of course kept hoping for Jericho and Mac to get together in the end. I think the first three books read by the other actress were good, but did not compare to the last two books - I wish the whole series had been done with Natalie and Phil. I would buy the first three books again if Natalie and Phil were doing them. I plan to look and see what other books both Phil and Natalie have read for audible and will most likely buy them based on my experience with the fever series.
