I love Sci Fi/Fantasy books. The very first author I listened to was Laurell K Hamilton. I love audiobooks they allow me the luxury of books without reading since I don't see well at all.

    While on patrol, werewolf Seth comes across a group of people under attack. The one woman brave enough to take a stand against the zombies catches his eye - and not just because of her way with a gun. Learning the beautiful woman is homeless and fends for herself only intensifies his urge to protect and care for her. Maisie can't help but admit that she's attracted to her werewolf rescuer. But she doesn't want another person to get hurt - or die - for her sake. But when Seth realizes something is drawing the zombies to Maisie, there may be nothing he can do to save her....

    What disappointed you about Bite Me?

    The story was too short, it was boring and it left you hanging .


    What was most disappointing about PJ Schnyder’s story?

    the story seemed to be thrown together and it just left you with no answers to anything so you have to buy the next book,,This was dissappointing


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    To me she wasnt able to personalize the characters..Everyone sounded the same to me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    this book was a waste of time and a waste of a credit..Im really sad because I really love these types of books

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    What disappointed you about Vampire Dynasty and Werewolves Lair?

    the story was very week. I couldnt connect with any of the characters and it seems as though things just began to happen without me knowing why.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vianka Van Bokkem again?

    no I will never listen to this author again. If this is the level of work she produces I'll pass,


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ali Cheff?

    the narrator was terrible. she kept repeating sentences and her voice didnt do it for me. the narrator had one drab tone the whole time I listened to this book. IT WAS UNBEARABLE!!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed with this book Im glad I didnt pay much for it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be removed from the library all together its simply terrible

    C.S. Friedman, acclaimed author of The Coldfire Trilogy, returns to the epic style which has made her one of the most popular fantasy writers in the genre. In this first book of the trilogy, Friedman introduces listeners to a world of high fantasy, replete with vampire-like magical powers, erotic interludes, treachery, war, sorcery, and a draconic creature of horrific power and evil that will have listeners eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series.

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

    No, this book wasnt for me but I think person that would like it more would be someone who likes long slower books or maybe someone who already likes this author


    Has Feast of Souls turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO I still like this genre of books however I dont think this is a series I will continue on with.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes the narration did match the story long and slow.


    What character would you cut from Feast of Souls?

    I would cut Camalla she never really developed for me.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Needs at Night's Edge to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of this book but I believe the audio version is the best because the narrator did voices that I thought were perfect and the emotions that he used for the characters were AWESOME.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Conrad Roth. He is my favorite due to the fact we got to see his transformation from fallen Vampire to a feeling, caring, virgin lover. It was so exciting.


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

    I have heard almost all of the books in this series and I think he is a great performer. he makes the characters come to life and he makes sure you know the differences between male and female which I think is really important.


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

    yes, I wish I could have listened to this book in one sitting. However I just would have angered myself because it would have ended quicker

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Campbell Scott?

    I would listen to another Stephen King book however I hope that he gets some help on how to end a book properly.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The book itself I think was good but he leaves you hanging in the end after 12:24:49 of listening I wanted a conclusion to the story.


    Did Campbell Scott do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think he only did a satifactory job. He could have done much more than he did. Maybe Phil Gigante should have narrated this story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed with the ending. The overall story was good but the ending was substandard

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book had no chance of being a 4 or 5 star experience for me ever! This book did not connect me with the main characters nor did I even care what happened to them. The author's writing in this book just didn't flow well at all, it seems as though a bunch of events where just taking place and not being tied together well.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am not sure at this point what my next book will be however it wont be book 2 in this series!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Oliver Wyman?

    As far as this book was concerned I don't think even Phil Gigante could have saved it for me so I would say I would say Oliver is the best choice.


    What character would you cut from Plague of the Dead?

    I would cut this whole book not just a character here and there

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    If you could sum up Hounded in three words, what would they be?

    This story was action packed and I liked the fact that the story was very easy to follow. The main character Aticus I connected with him right away along with his wolfhound Oberon.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the plot of the story and the fact that the author gave you enough about Aticus to keep the story going and you never get confused about what is going on.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He is a great reader. The only thing is in my mind Aticus has a Irish accent..lol


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    not sure
