    Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her wolf pack, but the petite redhead refuses to let an Alpha male interfere in her life. Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you enjoyed the first two audio books in this series you will like this book as well. Of course book 1 is my favorite, but I think I like this one more than book 2.

    (Unlike other reviewers I won't spoil the plot with a long winded review.)


    Who was your favorite character and why?


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

    There were times that Nick's voice reminded my of Trey, but when they were in the same scene you could definitely tell the difference. Props to the narrator on her many voices!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh and found myself smiling a lot as I listened to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Is it weird that I finished the book today and want to listen to the story all over again?

    Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives. When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals - unaware that he belongs to their world.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book should be read as part of the continuing story arc, but I did find myself skipping over scenes where Chase was alone with his own thoughts, because he kept thinking the same things again & again.


    What was most disappointing about Kresley Cole’s story?

    It seemed like 3/4 of this book was pretty depressing. I haven't finished the series yet, but so far this has been my least favorite.


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

    I usually like the narrator's male voices, not so much his female voices. Chase had 2 accents, his natural irish one and then his more modern angry voice. I didn't like either.


    Did Dreams of a Dark Warrior inspire you to do anything?

    I was inspired to create lots of bookmarks so I could skip to the parts I like if I ever re-listen to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The occasional scenes with Nix and Regin's humor helps the story along. I was glad to see Lothaire was active in this book.

    In 2006, Nalini Singh introduced the beguiling and sensual Psy-Changeling world in Slave to Sensation, which spawned a series that has had readers and critics cheering. Throughout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini's legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly awaited 12th book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy-Changeling mystery - an answer so surprising we wouldn't dare spoil it. Even if we knew.

    Would you listen to Heart of Obsidian again? Why?

    I have listened to this book too many times to admit.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Poor murderous Kaleb, how my heart broke for you. I thought his history with Sahara was wonderful. His actions spoke so much regarding: Sahara, Judd & the priest, the net, the world, etc.


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

    Whenever Kaleb confessed to Sahara (about anything & everything.)


    Any additional comments?

    Do not start the series with this book. You should not read these books out of order. There is a huge story arc spanning many books and you will spoil it for yourself if you don't begin with the first book.

    What do you do when you wake up to a whole new life…with dangerous urges you can't control? Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn't think twice about rendering emergency care when a teenager's life is at stake - even if the young girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better. It isn't the bright shining pain of the bite or even the wrenching agonies of the fever that convinces Drake everything in her life has changed.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who like to hear the main character thinking about how "hard up" she is from the moment the book begins.


    What could L. L. Raand have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe not have the main character thinking about sex constantly in the first 10 minutes of the book. I got it lady, you want sex, but you're in an important meeting, get your hormones under control.

    Had this book been about a hetero couple I would have felt the same way. Be the main character male or female, it wouldn't matter.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Maxine Mitchell?

    I only listened to ten minutes, but I didn't find anything wrong with the narrator during that time.

    There's always one more grave to dig. Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…. A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The very beginning of this book spoiled it for me. It allowed me to instantly know where this book was headed. Normally, I am horrible at predicting a plot line and I'm oblivious to foreshadowing, but the author made many things blatantly obvious.

    Why add Vladd and Leila's wedding to this book? It didn't add to the story. Instead it distracted from the story and made me wonder if the author was trying to increase her sales of the 3rd Vladd & Leila book. Even though I love Vladd it felt like filler and a sales pitch combined.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeaniene Frost again?

    I'm not sure. I love the Night Huntress series, but the story lines went down hill in later books and this last book really wasn't that great. ...It could have been a great story. There are many ways that the author could have improved this book.


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    A better question would be: Why does Bones' voice change from book to book? In book one Bones reminded me of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. I was content with his voice in books 2-6. Then the Christmas novella came out and I assumed Bone's voice was weird because he was possessed by a demon for most of the story, but he has the same weird voice for book 7 too.


    Was Up from the Grave worth the listening time?

    Normally after listening to a brand new story about Cat & Bones, I want to listen to the story again. Not this time. Maybe not for a long, long time.


    Any additional comments?

    Tate? Really? Bones is stuck with Tate on a daily basis? I would have preferred that anonymous sperm had been used or that Cat had kept her mouth shut and told Tate nothing. Or better yet, even if they told Tate the truth, if Cat & Bones had told him to get lost. Tate chose to become a vampire & had every opportunity to freeze his sperm ahead of time if had wanted the chance to be a parent. Cat never felt she a choice to have children and unlike Tate she didn't have time to plan before she became a vampire. Which one of the males is Katie to consider her Dad? Does she now have two fathers? Is Bones more of a step-parent?

    What disappointed you about Pretty When She Dies?

    Listen to the sample before purchasing this book. I have tried to listen to this book four times, but I can't seem to get past the first 20 minutes. I thought it was the narrator's voice that was rubbed me wrong, but this time I paid close attention to the author's words and I realized that part of the problem is that the beginning of this book is boring. Maybe the story gets better, but I doubt I'll give it a 5th try.


    What could Rhiannon Frater have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kristin Allison’s performances?

    Highly doubtful.

But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I might have enjoyed the parts where the beast took over if the story was still told form Jane's pov (even if the animal was in control.) I ended up skipping over the beast's bits of the story.


    Do you think Skinwalker needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    That depends on how often the beast's pov appears in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the world building and the characters. I would be tempted to buy more from this series if it weren't for the beast's pov.
