Fun & interesting.
Yes I would recommend this audiobook. The only problem is that this a series that follows each other kinda close. It should follow book 01 for better understanding.
His voice fitted the main character as I imagined.
I enjoyed this book,
tNot quite as good as previous books. Seems more like a series of related short stories or novellas. The first 2 books can stand alone and you need these for Book 3 to be understood.
This is a fun book. It goes a little overboard in the description of the results of some misadventures. The character descriptions are good, the introduction of new characters is good. There were a few inconsistencies in the story that caused me to give it 3 stars. They did not detract to the overall story.
Listening to the first few chapters, I thought OH NO.. Male with a problem, can't be physically intimate with his significant other, starts comparing himself to another male, a male who is what he thinks he wants. I gave a sigh but continued. I was in for a big but good disappointment. The story drastically changed. The excitement started. The story changed. The story became a fun, interesting follow up to book 1. There were still references to zombie Matt Richter's comparing himself to a living, fully functional human male. He and his significant other work through their problems while they work to get Matt's head reattached, get out of a prison that has never had an escape and unite in solving the mystery. The scene where the two (while in a joint hallucination) are with their twin children, in a nice little house is sad. The major mystery is solved. The heroes are sitting at the end of the story discussing what they perceive as an unfulfillable dream. They are verbally working out a mutual resolve to this. The unexpected happens. No, Matt must remain a zombie. You have to listen to the audio to find out.
This an interesting story about super heroes. It's presented from a young teen view point. This is complicated by the fact he is a super hero sidekick in training. The 'in training' is stressed throughout. Young Andrew Bean is struggling to walk a path complicated by many issues. Girls, friends, school, parents, teachers, enemies, mentors are all here with an infusion of life's many shades of grey. Andrew works through these while trying to keep these, his ideals and the 'sidekick code' in a balance he can live with. Kirby Hebome does an excellent job reading this story. I strongly recommend this book especially for those looking for something a little different.
This is an enjoyable book. It made me smile from the start. This is a correct match of story, humor and reader. I strongly recommend it.
Different, interesting, enjoyable
A different approach to old themes. A story with vampires, weres, cops, humans and a different yet similar world to experience.
I can't narrow it to any one character. The characters were done well.
I listened to this 18+ hour book in as close to one sitting as possible. I had to restart audio book at chapter 7. This was due to so much happening and information. I needed it to better understanding of the characters and situations.
The book summary does not do it justice. This book has much depth. The characters develop well. My biggest complaint is the reader's voice is too soft and vague in the begging chapters. I had to concentrate to get into the story. Then I was at chapter 7 with the need to restart story to get information I missed.
The Best Yet!
I don't know which to pick! There is so much going on.
Renee Raudman does an excellent job as usual with Kate Daniels, and supporting characters. She is a good narrator. Renee Raudman reads stories too you not at you. It is easy to sit back and just enjoy!
This is a book that can't be made well into a movie. It could make a mini series. There are a lot of subplots going on. Each plot has Kate as its center and could easily make 3 novellas.
I had to restart this audio book several times. The story starts off kinda bland. Then WOW it becomes so intense you're sitting on the edge of your couch, chair or where ever. I wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing anything.
This is not my usual type of audio book. I have other books by this author and enjoyed them. I decided to give this one a listen. The plot and characters develop well. The ending was a let down. There is the hint that the death of Erica was influenced by bad judgement due to alcohol. Then a minor character shows up. His behavior is altered from previous story dialog. The ending is left kinda open. You are told a probable but not certain end for him. The supporting characters just show up at the climax. Their reason for showing up is weak. The author should have said a little more about how Brynna was secured by the villain. How Brynna got loose is not possible under normal circumstances. It takes a big stretch of the imagination to agree with that. What I enjoyed was the write up for a teenager who has a sudden traumatic experience. Brynna is trying to work through her guilt for living, after turning too and overcoming drugs and alcohol. Her certain knowledge of the need to stay clean everyday. Brynna has difficulties with her need for alcohol. Brynna is aware of the need to rebuild her self. She has the need to block out the past. She tries to get herself together. Then there is her parent whom she labels as a functioning alcoholic. This reflects real life. Many teenage alcoholics has an alcoholic relative. Often that relative is a parent. There is the constant temptation for booze and/or drugs for life. Brynna's parents are supportive and do what they think is best.
This audiobook is well done. A good story with interesting characters. The story develops well. There is drama, humor, and sad parts. The supporting characters enhance the story without taking over. This audiobook had two firsts for me. It is the first book by the author and reader I have encountered. Emily Bauer's reading enhanced my enjoyment. Her voice fit the main character well. A fun book.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I was interested that it gave a different insight in the search for eternal life and how to achieve it. The characters had good development during the story. The secondary characters had their place that completed the plot. I enjoyed Ari Fliakos' reading. His young/old voice complimented the main character very well. The author is now on my list for future purchases.
