    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Would you listen to Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) again? Why?

    Yes! I had read the Heir to the Empire series ages ago when they were first released -- Marc Thompson brings the all ready known characters and story up to fantastic levels. The added sound effects are amazing and fun, they envelope the listener, including them in the story... like an old radio play. I recently gave this book series and audio book to my 13 year old, who also enjoyed them immensely.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All. Growing up a Star Wars fan and reader of related novels... this series is the best.


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

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    If you could sum up How to Run with a Naked Werewolf in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, sexy, even compelling!


    If you’ve listened to books by Molly Harper before, how does this one compare?

    Molly Harper's works are a fun and easy escape. Great stories with stimulating and amusing characters and plot lines.


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

    Amanda Ronconi's performance for the Naked Werewolf series is spot on! Each book takes on a different character from that universe, but Amanda brings each character their own unique voice and charm. She also brings just the right tension and suspense when appropriate.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third installment of the Naked Werewolf series. Each book follows different women in the NW universe, each telling their own captivating, fun and/or mysterious, and sexy stories. Not your typical romance/fantasy novel. Charming, humorous and great fun.

    For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning.

    After trudging through the last book/performance, I decided to give the next one a chance. Again, I don't know if it was the material itself or the somber performance of the reader or both -- but I could not finish listening. It was dull and tiresome to listen to. I couldn't finish it.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Would you try another book from Stephenie Meyer and/or Ilyana Kadushin?

    Maybe


    What three words best describe Ilyana Kadushin’s performance?

    I think Ilyanna was a good choice for the mood of the character. However, I don't know if it was material or the performer's voice, but it made me sleepy many times.


    Any additional comments?

    I decided to "read" the books after watching the movie series, of which the first Twilight I enjoyed the most. I thought it captured a unique mood and characters throughout that the rest of the films consistently lost. I was told by a family member who read the entire series that it was a decent read. Opting to listen to the audiobook, I found it a bit boring. I don't know if it was due to the somber voice of the reader or if it was the material or combination of both.

    Admit it. You want to BE William Shatner. This collection of rules, illustrated with stories from Bill’s illustrious life and career, will show you how Bill became WILLIAM SHATNER, larger than life and bigger than any role he ever played. Shatner Rules is your guide to becoming William Shatner. Or, more accurately, beautifully Shatneresque.

    What did you love best about Shatner Rules?

    I have followed Shatner's work since I became a Star Trek fan...but he's hasn't been my favorite. In recent years, however, he has become more and more entertaining and charming.

    This audiobook was a delight! Shatner tells a great, interesting and entertaining story with all his unique charm and style.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interesting story of his past to present adventures. It was fun to listen to and had recommended it to friends and family.


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

    Shatner's distinct voice, style and charisma

    Eight darkly erotic and horrifically delicious stories guaranteed to give you shivers, in more ways than one! All of the stories included: "Silent Night", "Mercy", "The Velvet Choker", "Pumpkin Eater", "The Ride", "Advent Calender", "The Laundry Chute", "The Gingerbread Man", and a bonus story: "Hunting Season", co-authored with Blake Crouch. Warning: This title contains graphic language, sex and elements of horror.

    Georgina Kincaid has had an eternity to figure out the opposite sex, but sometimes they still surprise her. Take Seth Mortensen. The man has risked his soul to become Georgina's boyfriend. Still, with Lucifer for a boss, Georgina can't just hang up her killer heels and settle down to domestic bliss. In fact, she's being forced to transfer operations...to Las Vegas.

    What did you love best about Succubus Revealed?

    I love the continuation of the Georgina Kincaid story.... it keeps the depth of characters and doesn't lose the mystery component or the great writing as some series do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Succubus Revealed?

    The main mystery/character arch throughout the series has a suspenseful, intriguing, and satisfying conclusion. The whole puzzle comes together in a captivating way. I wish the series didn't end, however, Richelle Mead found the recipe to write an enthralling, charming, sexy, and humorous entire series with a genuinely great ending.


    What about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance did you like?

    Elisabeth Rodgers has truly been fantastic throughout the series, bringing to life the wonderful words on the page. She echos the humanity, grace, sensuality and humor of Georgina in the book and injects a certain vitality and spirit in to, not only the hero, but to all the characters.


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

    Yes, if time could allow such a thing.
