    King Boric the Implacable knows death comes to all great warriors. He just didn't expect it to be so damn fickle. Felled by an assassin's blade, he should be spending eternity carousing in the Hall of Avandoor. Instead, his spirit is bound to his decaying body by the enchanted sword of Brakslaagt. And unless he can hunt down the mysterious Lord Brand, who gave him the weapon so long ago, he is cursed to wander the earth forever as an undead wraith.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Disenchanted to be better than the print version?

    Two words Phil Gigante!


    What other book might you compare Disenchanted to and why?

    Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy meets Lord of the Rings, writing with a Monty Python flare.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    suicidal sheep


    Any additional comments?

    This writer is wonderful and so funny!! Having Phil read it was magic, and I couldn't imagine it any other way. He read it with such seriousness and I can't think how someone else could pull it off. Just don't read it in public or while running. The first will get you really weird looks, the latter will make it hard to breath through all the giggling! What a great fun book! I would recomend to any age, any gender. My 15 year old son loved it too!

    Where does Written in My Own Heart's Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was Outlander, the first book, now it might be this one! It exceeding all my expectations and I was so sad to be finished!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Its easy to say Claire and Jamie and they were, but Jermaine is my stand out character in this book.


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

    You know every character is with out having the author say the name, she brings each one their own life, and displays the emotion with out it seeming over done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to add spoilers to this, so I will say the passing of two beloved characters... Diana, you and George are not longer allowed to play with each other!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't say enough of how much this book!! All of the books in this series were fantastic, but some did seem to drag in spots... I felt like a 1/4 of Echo was William in the great dismal for example, but this was wonderful. It flowed, it moved, and it made you angry that it wasn't getting there fast enough, but it was the way it should be. It amazes me what a wonderful writer Diana Gabaldon is and I will be her personal slave if that means we can get book 9 sooner!

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Quick Bite to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audiobooks. I enjoy the freedom of being able to work out or do chores while getting in a good read. I enjoy the acting involved with a good narrator. This one actually takes away from the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Victoria McGee’s performances?

    Only if it is the only way to get the audio version of a story, but mostly, I would rather read it myself. I do not need to make it extra breathy to help the author tell a story.


    Any additional comments?

    Please Ms McGee take some acting lessons, or listen to other narrators. Susan Ericksen is a huge reason why listen to the JD Robb series.

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Amy Huber says: "Susan Ericksen is amazing!"
    "Go Peabody!! Another great one!"

    What made the experience of listening to Celebrity in Death the most enjoyable?

    Susan Ericksen is so talented, and JD Robb is magic! Between the two of them, I loved all of it, and especially enjoyed Peabody's story, her strengths and her humor. Of course Eve and Rouke, but Peabody was a stand out in this one!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Celebrity in Death?

    somewhat of a SPOILER but Peabody's interview of the


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    You know who is who with out of the writer telling you so, Susan give each person their own personality!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Peabody chat with Eve about her trip to Dallas and how she handled it.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy this series so much!! I hope that Nora, umm, I mean JD Robb doesn't stop writing them, and that Susan will always be the Narrator, can't imagine ANYONE else doing them!
