    Even by vampire standards, Reaper is a loner, and his current mission to destroy a gang of rogue bloodsuckers is definitely a one-vamp job. Then fate takes a hand, and before he knows it, he's surrounded by a ragtag crew of misfit helpers: the newbie, the princess, the shape-shifter, and the human healer.

    Well writen, well read, but slightly predictable.

    What disappointed you about The Haunted Fixer-Upper?

    The characters and the writing style are all over the map. 1 minute the main character is intelligent and halfway savvy the next minute a complete moron. The main character's significant other is a poorly used plot device that is ignored by the author over half the time. The narrator is good.


    Has The Haunted Fixer-Upper turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I have read other books in this genre and thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank goodness this was not my 1st book of this genre. Had it been the 1st book in the genre I had read I probably would have been turned off completely.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Margie Lenhart?

    I enjoyed the narrator and she did the best she could with what she had to work with.


    What character would you cut from The Haunted Fixer-Upper?

    The character I would cut from this novel isn't in the novel it's the editor. Some authors need a good strong editorial hand to keep them on track, this is one of those writers.


    Any additional comments?

    If this is the 1st book you have read of this genre don't let it disappoint you too badly there are many good books and authors in this area. Please try again. I would recommend you try something from Molly Harper Juliet Blackwell. Both are good authors with a good sense of humor.

    The fight to free the Earth from alien domination began in Live Free or Die, and continued in Citadel. Now Tyler Vernon and his troops aboard the gigantic battle station Troy face a desperate battle with the forces of galactic tyranny. And the very survival of the Earth and its people is not all that is at stake. The galaxy itself must choose to live free or die - and if the tyrants win this battle, darkness will fall across the galaxy for millennia to come.

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

    Not only what I recommend this book to a friend, I have recommended it to all my friends. Each book is an enjoyable story unto itself but, it really should be read from first to last. Characters are well-developed the space battles are excellent and the humor is very entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is difficult to pick out single character as a favorite they all have their good points.


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

    The narrator is very good and I have enjoyed all of the books that I have listened to where he has narrated.


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

    Live free or die.
