    The continuation of the story is perfect. Anastasia's inner monologue is very entertaining. I listened with my heart in my throat. I laughed, I cryed, and I panted! What more could you ask for?

    Seven corpses are discovered in the streets of a Dragon’s fief. All identical, down to their clothing. Kaylin Neya is assigned to discover who they were, who killed them - and why. Is the evil lurking at the borders of Elantra preparing to cross over? At least the investigation delays her meeting with the Dragon Emperor. And as the shadows grow longer over the fiefs, Kaylin must use every skill she’s ever learned to save the people she’s sworn to protect. Sword in hand, dragons in the sky, this time there’s no retreat....

    Story

    I got the first book in the series when it was on the free list. It was worth listening to. It got me hooked. The world Michelle Sagara created for the story is great. I felt transported. I do wish that it would have had a little more romance. It's a fast moving action packed sci-fi. It could pass for a teen series.

    Story

    E. L. James has really got something! This is by far the best story I have listened to, ever! It has everything. I was so into the story that it was almost impossible to turn it off. The narration was great. Becca Battoe got it just right. I very highly recommend the Trilogy.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    Story

    I thought a story about a vampire that had a blood phobia would be interesting. It isn't. The story is so predictable that it is not interesting. The narriator's voice is terrable. It's all breathy and trying to be sexy. It makes it hard to listen to. I guess if your 19 and like really chick lit books this is probably for you.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades of Grey again? Why?

    This story will totaly take you in. I didn't really like the narrator but don't give up on her, she gets better as the story goes along. I normally listen to more fantacy romance, if thats your thing you won't be dissapointed by this. Anna is one amazing character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Grey?

    OH, there is not just one! The entire store can not even begin to be described in one moment.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    Anna. She takes her from the meek girl to a strong woman. The change is very noticable and makes the character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending. I cried big teers!


    Any additional comments?

    I was so cought up in this story that I didn't even sleep for 2 days! I had to know what happened. I know! That is totally rediculous.

    Barely a teenager, Kaylin Neya is a thief, a fugitive, and an attempted assassin. She also has a smart mouth, sharp wits, and mysterious markings on her skin. All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra - if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks!

    Would you try another book from Michelle Sagara and/or Khristine Hvam?

    I am very upset about this book. It says that this is book 6.5 but it is,not. It is book 1. I got the book thinking it was a new one. Very misleading. If you already purchased the first book do not get this one it is the same one.

    What about Max Bellmore’s performance did you like?

    Max bellmore total pulls you in to the story. He is right up there with Phil Gigante.
