    He bursts into the battle, his leather jacket billowing and his huge silver sword flashing. Amber has no idea why this windswept warrior would rescue her, but there he is... fighting the same demon who’d killed her sister. Though he is a stranger, she immediately senses he’s come to protect her. And with the first touch of his lips on hers, she knows he is bound to her, his body meant for her. Yet the shadow of evil is spreading quickly....

    Would you try another book from Jennifer Ashley and/or Rebecca Cook?

    Jennifer No. Rebecca yes.


    What could Jennifer Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    plot.. story... anything.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Immortals: The Calling?

    I would have cut just about every other page. I'm no prude, but sex without a story line is is just bad porn. I don't think she even tried to create a good work of fiction. The even sadder thing is that there are so many books in the series. What does that say about women in our culture today? Just sad.


    Any additional comments?

    If it seems like I didn't say much here its because I thought I would stay with the authors theme. Oh.. minus the bad porn.

    Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them. Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have been thinking about listening to this book for a long time. I had it in my wish list for over a year. I should have left it there. There is something about the reader that makes the main character sound about 13 years old instead of an adult who is living on her own in New York. It's more like a high school cafeteria. I feel bad for the author. Sorry Meg.


    Would you recommend Insatiable to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I just couldn't take her seriously.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Bauer?

    Anyone. Maybe even Emily, if she had used a different voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. but I might buy it in book form.

  • Touch the Dark: Cassandra Palmer, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 5 mins)

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There could have been some cohesion in the story line.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I just couldn't get past the readers voice, she sounds bored or half asleep. There was no change in her tempo with the action in the story.


    Do you think Touch the Dark needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know there are follow up books. I doubt I will listen because the reader is the same.


    Any additional comments?

    As I started the book I realized this was the second time I had tried to listen to it. I just couldn't do it.

    The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good...and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.

    Overall

    I was very disappointed in this book. I have to admit I was moved by the fact that it was a long novel, and that it was an extensive series. I never want a good book to end. The small amount that I listened to here was clearly about sex, which is fine with me, I like sex. But the narrative droned on and on. I was also some what unsettled by the content of training young 10 year olds to be adepts in houses where they will service the wealthy. Yes call me a prude if you like, I am not one, but there you are. The main heroine discovering that she loved pain at age 7 was the turning point. I stayed with her until she was deflowered and I could take no more. All that being said I think I would have traveled on through it if the narrator was not so boring and monotone. There was no change in inflection at all from character to character. Horrid content, boring reader, and too much court intrigue. Blah
