    Anthony Award-winning author Charlaine Harris has earned a devoted fan base with her USA Today and New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. All Together Dead features more dark but frequently hilarious adventures of buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie, who prefers the company of vampires to that of the living.

    They are making a pilot out of this series called True Blood on HBO. It is a light and funny series with a lot of adventure that I started listening to in the middle with Dead as a Doornail with Audible. I did go out and get the earlier books to read to bring myself up to date. I would love to have the entire series available on Audible. Even though each book stands on its own it is better starting at the beginning, you get more of a feel on the history of the characters. If you are looking for something entertaining you will enjoy this series.

    Katie Woods never thought that she'd be forty-one, divorced, and thrust back into the dating world. To start fresh, Katie uproots her veterinary practice to upstate New York - not exactly the hottest dating scene on the planet. But when an unconscious cougar appears at her clinic, Katie's newly single life gets a much needed jolt of the supernatural kind. After Katie examines the cougar and leaves him caged overnight, she's shocked to find a big strapping specimen of young, hot man in its place.

    Would you try another book from Dakota Cassidy and/or Meredith Mitchell?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    I could not decide if it was the terrible narrator who talked voices in monotone without inflection or the really bad writing and language. I don't mean swearing I mean slang. I did not even last two chapters.


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

    Disgust. I had just listened to a five star book that cost as much as this one, by Diana Gabaldon.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy a good paranormal book. This isn't one.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    Where does Feral Sins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I usually follow authors. I chose this one thinking well.. if I hate it I can return it. I do not give five stars usually. I gave this one five because I laughed out loud several times during the story.


    What other book might you compare Feral Sins to and why?

    I thought this was a light fun read. Maybe I felt the same with the first Sookie Stackhouse book. A different idea.


    Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

    The reader was very good, did several characters with different voices and was easy to tell one from another while they were talking in a group. I thought she was outstanding.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is one of shapeshifting wolves. Not people that were bitten. So the sex in it was a bit different and graphic and I can see how it could upset some people. My thought was, if I can get through three books of 50 Shades, how bad could this be :)

    Perhaps I have a twisted sense of humor but I enjoyed the sarcastic wit and I look forward to the next book in the series.

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Parusski says: "Eerie, honest, frightening!"
    "No thanks"
    Overall

    I am wondering if Mr. King is having problems with his women. A story of a man who murders his wife, which isn't anything but gross and corrupts his son into helping him do it, which is sad and sick. The next one a detailed story of a woman getting raped and beaten. Oh yeah that is what women want to read. I quit. Nothing spooky, nothing that goes bump in the night or makes you wonder what is happening. The third story is about a man who wants to transfer his cancer to his best friend. Why? Because he is jealous. After doing a deal with the devil his friend's wife gets it instead and dies. It then goes on to tell how the friends entire family gets destroyed, while the man watches and enjoys. No moral here, no story here. The last story is about a woman with a dark side... what a surprise.

Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me. And now he has branded my guards as a threat to my unborn children."

    If you have been listening to Laural Merlington narrate the series this book will be a hard listen. She is good but she doesn't do different voices and it is easy to mistake which person is talking. I think I will probably buy the book, I feel like I missed a lot.

    Lara Calladine is haunted by childhood memories of being held prisoner in an ice cave and kept sane by the whispered stories told to her by her imprisoned aunts. They instilled mage and Carpathian magic deep within her and then helped her escape.

    Overall

    The male narration made me want to barf, the story included a lot of descriptive child abuse, and in my opinion probably the worst book of the series. For those of us who followed the series this was just...disappointing. For some reason the series now has it's own language and I moaned when the terrible narrator started singing, to me it has all made the series into a joke.

    I actually liked this story. It was entertaining and moved along quickly. However I think it would be a better read. The narrator was so irritating. She read well, changed voices well however has a habit of lowering the tone of her voice at the end of her sentences. As if she was reading poetry. If it had a better narrator I would have given it four stars.

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Kathy says: "Hurry up! I want them all!"
    "Another great book!"

    One of my favorite books! If you have been reading this series you will love this one. If you haven't, start with Outlander.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Shelley says: "I ADORE this series!"
    "Unabridged only please"
    Overall

    This series starts with Outlander when the main character Clare is in her 20s. The series continues in time and in the last one written to date she is in her 50s. It is hard to identify this series but is definitely a descriptive romance with a lot of adventure, with a touch of SciFi. My favorite books in this series so far are The Outlander and the next one called The Voyager. For all of you who loved Outlander the best is yet to come, just don't buy the unabridged. It is like listening to half of the story. Dragonfly In Amber is not the end of the story just setting up the future stories. Enjoy.
