    Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it’s a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don’t know all the terrors buried within its walls…

    I would not have purchased this book had I known it was part of a series. I only listened to about 5 minutes of it before I decided I was not interested. I only marked performance as 1 star because I had to rate it at something. I normally love Susan Ericksen I was just not interested in this series.

She - and her billionaire husband - are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, of gossip, of speculation. But now Eve has become the object of one person's obsession. Someone who finds her extraordinary, and thinks about her every hour of every day. Who believes the two of them have a special relationship. Who would kill for her - again and again....

    I love rhis series and really enjoyed this particular book. In book 40 of the series we were able to enjoy a look back at several of Eve's cases and her thoughts and interactions with the family she unwittingly created. I love her unique take on what constitutes friendship.

    JD Robb you and Susan Ericksen are an enjoyable combination. keep up the good work.

    Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest. Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list - plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.

    Story

    I have read a couple of reviews saying that the last couple of books have been flat. I am not sure what they are reading or expecting but any book that can take me from crying because of the sweetness of the Eve and Roarke to laughing at the outrageous antics of Mavis has not lost it's magic.
    The growth of characters is exactly what keeps me coming back and wanting more. I have read other series in which you have the same characters in each book and the lack of growth stifled my interest in the characters, book and author. The in Death series does not have that problem.
    The other complaint I have read says that someone else must be writing the books because the word choice shows a lack of futuristic tense. As we have been introduced to this world and time we have become knowledgeable about its language and terms so that may be what the other readers are seeing or maybe because we are getting closer to the time of this series our language is catching up. Either way I still enjoy a look to our close future.
    Should Eve be promoted/ have a baby. I think those to events would come hand in hand and add another dimension to the story. I know JD Robb has said the series would be over if they had a baby but I would be interested in learning how they both add that dimension to their lives and see how they would need to adjust to a new situation. If it coincided with a promotion for Eve that took her off the streets and used her intuition and people skills to manage others during an investigation it could work. I know I enjoy her kicking butt however as people grow and learn they figure out how to accomplish their goals using new skills and it would be interesting to see how they change and grow. It could also get Peabody out on her own more so she has a chance to do the butt kicking and add dimension to her relationship with Eve.

    Story

    I have listened to many books and many narrators. Some I absolutely love and will try an author just because I love the narrator, some are so so, I can overcome listening to them because I love the story and get familiar with their style and don't notice it anymore. With this book I had read the story and liked it so I thought I would give the audible version a try because sometimes listening to the story brings out even more detail. I could not finish listening to the book. In fact it put so on edge I stopped liking the story.

    I enjoy the story and the characters but strongly dislike the narrator. Her voice grates on my nerves and I find I have to take a break from listening to the story because I keep getting irritated and snapping at people around me. I am reading one of the books on my kindle and I am not finding the same problem with irritation so I have to put it down to the narrator. I think I will continue the series in the written version and give up on the audible version.

    Twenty months ago, Jamie and Lauren crashed a coven meeting in Chicago - a visit they barely remember. For Beth Landler, it was the moment that fractured her circle and awakened her need for an entirely different kind of magic. The kind only found in Witch Central. If she can dig up the courage to go.

    Story

    The gift of magic is not only the characters to own but also an author who understands how to be different and yet to be part of a whole. And a narrator who can carry the emotions and glory of being different by the inflections in her voice. Kudos to both for bringing Autism spectrum awareness to many who may not have been touched by it. And for showing to those of us who deal with it everyday the glory of being different but not less.

    What about Rebecca Soler’s performance did you like?

    very consistant reader


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, if time permited but I also want to break it up to make it last. I usually listen to books several times and this one will be going to the top of my favorites list.


    Any additional comments?

    Marissa Meyer is very creative in her story telling and Rebecca Soler adds to the soul of the characters.

    Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

    no!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    just aweful, I really cannot comment on the story because I could not get through 20 minutes of the narrator. This is the first book I have not been able to listen to and I have listened to hundreds of books

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Yes, love the whole sereis


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abby of course, how could you not love a psychic who can't see what is coming at her around the corner


    What about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance did you like?

    She takes a little time to get used to her voice but once you get aclimated she is awesome.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't believe in psychic abilities because I have never seen them except for on TV. But that does not mean I can not enjoy a story about one. Don't let skepticism keep you from listening to a great series.
