    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

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

    I have recommended this series to all my audible book friends. Nalini is one of the best writers I'v listened to and she made a good choice in narrators.


    What other book might you compare Angels' Blood to and why?

    none that I'v listened to so far, it is in a class of its own. I'm so glad there are 7 books in this series.


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

    no

    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

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

    The writer has a great story....but it is writen like a comic book or a immature writer...with way too may cliches and medtaphors..The mood of the story line was ruined by the lack of maturity in the verbiage.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Coreene Callahan again?

    This is my second book, unfortunately I bought it before I listen to the first one


    Would you be willing to try another one of Benjamin L. Darcie’s performances?

    No.....I do not like men narrators. They are not able to perform multiple characters or women very well.


    What character would you cut from Fury of Ice?

    none....I like the characters and the story line....just not the stupid filler works used, again its like listing to a comic book story line.

    Deep within the Wood, a young woman lies dead. Not a mark on her body. No trace of her murderer. Only her chipped glass slippers hint at her identity. The Woodcutter, keeper of the peace between the Twelve Kingdoms of Man and the Realm of the Faerie, must find the maiden’s killer before others share her fate. Guided by the wind and aided by three charmed axes won from the River God, the Woodcutter begins his hunt, searching for clues in the whispering dominions of the enchanted unknown. But quickly he finds that one murdered maiden is not the only nefarious mystery afoot....

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

    Whimsical, captivating, detailed


    What about Sarah Coomes’s performance did you like?

    It was Sarah's performance that kept me listening. Her many voices made you envision each character. She is one of my favorite narrater. I will try any book she has narrated

Will was her knight in shining armor until he broke her heart after their one and only kiss. On Lilly's first day of college, she meets Brand Cole. Intrigued by Brand, Lilly must decide whether or not she can give up her adolescent fantasy of being reunited with Will and allow Brand the opportunity to conqueror her heart.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No.....the store seemed mediocre I think because the narrator was so boring.


    Would you be willing to try another book from S.J. West? Why or why not?

    Yes with a different narrator


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christa Lewis?

    Becca Battoe.......Christa Lewis could not define any characters, they all sounded the same and her rendition of a British person sounded like a southern person with a bad accent. She was either speaking monoton or in a very loud voice when changing characters. Maybe the book is'nt boring but she makes it sound that way.


    Did Cursed inspire you to do anything?

    Yes....delete the book from my collection
