    What did you love best about The Chamber?

    I like any book that can help us to see into another person. Even a fictional person. Racism and hate and understanding and forgiveness and tolerance. There are some very harsh elements, there would have to be for the story to take place primarily on death row. I felt for the characters. I like a book that may help me see the other side of an argument in a new light.


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

    The narrator was very good. I enjoyed his voice. I only once or twice thought his intonation was off and that is really nitpicking because he was good.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the first books that I got on my Audible acct. way back in 2002. It is now 2012. Ten years of listening and I thought I would listen to all of them over and write a quick review (finally) for each one. At the time that I got this book, I was also listening to Jonathan Kerlerman and Robert Ludlum. My tastes have changed, I do not like horrible killings and rapes that have a lot of details. I would rather have a light heart warming story. I have kids now and life is complicated enough. When I read I want to escape to a simple story with conflict that may be resolved. Though this book does not have a simple conflict, and the subject matter is hard, the story is still heart warming. There are harsh words and it is impossible to tell a story that includes racism with out using dialog that I would rather not hear but I'm glad I read the book 10 years ago, and I'm glad I read the book today.

    Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed - until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive. Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. Soon passion burns between them.

    Would you listen to Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night again? Why?

    Every time a new book in the series is about to come out I re-read from the first book through to the new book. I have re-read this one twice. This one has a strong female lead who does not want to settle though she does have abandonment issues.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    Robert Petkoff's versatility in the characters voices was wonderful, never destructing and the change from man to beast was even enhancing to the story, and of course I love accents!


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

    The lipstick in her backpack..
