    How could the performance have been better?

    I'm personally not done with this book but i can not believe no one has mentioned the lack of Adrain's accent?! Hello that is part of what makes listening to this book the best! I am really trying to "hear" past it and so far enjoying the story but whoever made the decision to change that was stupid! ~ Will update review when I'm done with book. But again can't believe I'm the only one this is bothering!

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    Didn't mind the male narrator but to totally remove the accent! That is what makes Adrain....well ADRAIN. I'm so disappointed - who and why would that decision have been made to remove such a key part of the character! Bad call just bad... story seems pretty good but this is a major piece missing that would have made the book more enjoyable!


    Do you think The Fiery Heart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Any follow up book will have to have the accent back in where it's just Emily Shafer or the male narrator but that HAS to be put back in.

    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students - children of the wealthy and powerful - carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    Where does The Golden Lily rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Within it's own genre, of teen vampire stories. I would give it 8 out 10.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Golden Lily?

    I love the way Sydney interaction with how Adrian responses. :)


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

    I've only listened her do the Vampire Academy Series and this series, Bloodlines.

    As usual Richelle Mead does not disappoint. It was a smooth transition from the last book and she left me wanting more and more... Ah how long before the next book!!!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    I can truly say that I have not listen/read a better then this in years!!! WOW. I'm now on a campaign to force all my friends and family to pick this up!!! Can't wait listen to the rest of the books. And the narrator was excellent!
