Waking Dream is the fifth book in the Dream series. Sara is back with her husband Brian the kids and a new foe.
She also has a new narrator Pam Dougherty. Pam keeps the tone and pace of previous narrators. Her voice was close to other narrators so I easily heard Sara's voice in Pam's performance.
JJ DiBenedetto writes a story that can stand alone but also is part of bigger picture. So many authors retell previous books to catch a reader up and add chapters to the book, JJ does it gracefully and with just enough backstory to please both new and old readers.
Sara is faced with a new discovery about here dreams. This ability can influence people to act in the real world. Although Sara would never harm anyone she finds another dreamer who does. This person is out for blood and money. Will Sara find out who this second dreamer is? Can she stop them before they harm someone. The hunt is on as Sara keeps up her regular life and her dream life. Can she keep both on track and safe.
Read Waking Dream to find out what's next for Sara and her family. This Dream Series Book will not disappoint and is a great listen. I received this book as a gift for an honest review.
Narrated by Dick Hill in the same tone and professional manner of all his work, he brings Nathan McBride to life. You listen and think Nathan himself is recalling the story. I have review the first two McBride novels and feel Andrew Petetson has produced his best work to date. I love seeing Nathan's human side opposed to his Marine/CIA side that really can't be separated.
When young Lauren texts Nathan saying she has been kidnapped he knows it's no hoax. Lauren gets his attention by using his secret CIA code name. Nathan leaps into action trying to find and protect Lauren. He immediately finds himself in the middle of a situation he doesn't fully understand. But as McBride is never in over his head he heeds the call and the thrill commences.
Option to Kill is the Best McBride book to date. It is a great listen and makes you want more.
This book was purchased with my own money for review.
W.E.B. Griffin is a masterful author of military historical fiction. He has covered WWII, the Marines, The Police , and Now the Cold War. Alexander Cendese narrated the first book in this new series with the care of other noteable narrators in W.E.B. Griffin series such as Dick Hill.
Listening to books the length of most Griffin series can be difficult because of the precise detail he puts into his books. Cendese reads Top Secret like an old fashion radio play. Every Character is unique and precise. I know who is talking each and every time . There are 20 plus different character voices and each is unique.
The story itself covers a secret US program to smuggle high ranking Nazi's out of Germany and too Argentina, as well as setting up listening posts to monitor Russian activity in the East. This was a tricky operation because the Russians were our alli.
After WWII Germans would rather die then be captured or turned over to the Russians who would torture and kill them. The US provided them safe passage to Argentina for information. This series will discuss the Cold Was from the end of WWII to the End of the Cold War. I highly recommend this AudioBook as it is a great Listen and a great story.

This book keeps Isabel's attention as she flips page after page until she reaches the end. This book is a masterpiece. A book that will take her to the top of her profession. If only she can stay alive long enough to have it published.

Robby's Quest for Seed is a color illustrated book and is also available on Audible.com as an audiobook. The book is self published by the authors through DCRushBooks. This children's book is beautifully narrated by Tracy Elman. Her voice is soft and soothing with emotion and love and feels like story time at the local library.
Robby's Quest for speed is an adorable children's book. It has a good story about adventure, danger, teamwork, protecting children, and promotion for good work.
I have to say some of the word choices seemed a bit advanced for the reading level of the book. This book will expand your child's vocabulary but young readers may need mom and dad's help with larger words with three and four syllables.
This book was gifted to me for an honest review.

Theresa Kay's 1st book in Broken Skies series is narrated by 1st time narrator Andrea Emmes. Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 1 edition (March 10, 2014)
Andrea has the perfect voice for the lead character and voices the other characters from old to the very young both male and female very well. Theresa Kay has given proper respect to each genre in this Science Fiction, Young Adult, and Dystopia collaboration.
The story starts off quickly and catches you up along the way with details as needed in this fast passed audiobook. Jax Mitchell's world has been a little crazy. Her mom died at the birth of her and her twin brother and their father died after raising them through their early teens.

Davis Bunn's second book in Marc Royce series is another hit. Published by Brilliance Audio and Bethany House in book and digital format.
New narrator, Phil Gigante, doesn't miss a step as this time we find Marc in Africa where volcano caused drought has deveststed this once rich farm land.
As an accountant Marc is auditing a relief agencies books, while undercover he is looking for a missing aid worker. The relief agency is just one arm of a private security company and they don't want Marc asking any questions.
As Marc quickly gets relief supplies from the tents to the needy he is given more responsibility by a local leader who gives him a blank check to get food and medical supplies into the refuge camps.

Pressure rises fast as the truth comes to light as too why the aid worker has disappeared, and no one wants Marc to solve the problem.
