I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.

    "I thought things would change when I found the others. We would stop running. We would fight the Mogadorians. And we would win. But I was wrong. Even though we have come together, we barely escaped from the Mogadorians with our lives. And now we're in hiding, trying to figure out our next move. The six of us are powerful - but we're not yet strong enough to take on their entire army. We haven't discovered the full extent of our Legacies. We haven't learned to work together. And there's still so much that we don't know about the Elders or their plan for us."

    What disappointed you about CRUSH?

    The book sucks! I think a five-year-old to come up with a better story!
    I could not make it to the whole book! Narrator sucks to! Drop the mic a couple of time! Better several times missed several places there's absent spots in the narration! All the books sucks!

    Kaylin returned from the West March in one piece. Now that piece is fraying. She's not at home in the Imperial Palace - and she never intends to be. All she wants is normal garden-variety criminals and a place of her own. Of course, normal in her new life involves a dragon as a roommate, but she can handle that. Kaylin can't as easily handle the new residents to the city she polices, because one of them is Nightshade's younger brother. On a night when she should be talking to landlords in perfectly normal buildings, she's called to the fief - by Teela.

    What disappointed you about Cast in Flame?

    This is not a bad book , just one the author has written before. There's no romance in this whole book, Homes need love friends need love, families need love, dragons need love - even enemies need love. Kaylin has no love. In the story goes around in circles. It's the same thing if so just a little different. Getting really repetitive!

    When Ruby woke up on her 10th birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

    Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat, and a quirky best friend. Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!

    If you like your books steamy (this is a paranormal romance series for adults, not for kids or teens!) and you appreciate a good witch, warlock and vampire romance triangle, listen on! Toil And Trouble is the second book in the Jolie Wilkins series (witch romance books). The Underworld in civil war. The cause? A witch who can reanimate the dead. A sexy as sin vampire determined to claim her. An infuriatingly handsome warlock torn between duty and love. Who says blonds have more fun?

    For smart and sexy witch Jolie Wilkins, being Queen of the Underworld is a royal pain. Back from a round of time travel, Jolie must now protect her realm from the sinister Lurkers - a powerful breed of half-humans bent on conquering the undead. And if there's one thing she knows, it's that the supernatural never go down without a fight. At least Jolie has her soul mate (and finally official boyfriend), warlock Rand Balfour, by her side. Honorable, brave, and unbelievably handsome, Rand is everything Jolie wants in a man. So why can't she forget the dangerously alluring vampire, Sinjin Sinclair?

    Funny and feisty witch Jolie Wilkins is back - or rather, she's back to her humble beginnings. Propelled into the past to her old Los Angeles fortune-telling shop, Jolie has no idea she possesses extraordinary powers, and she definitely doesn't remember becoming Queen of the Underworld. But at least she has two incredibly sexy men vying for her affection. Yet despite her steamy love life, Jolie can't shake the sense that something is not quite right....
