    The year is 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine, high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the following year, three climbers - a British poet and veteran of the Great War, a young French Chamonix guide, and an idealistic young American - find a way to take their shot at the top.

    The second half of this book is terrific, the first half is slow. It's worth while to push through the first half.

    The book was okay, I didn't like the narrator at all. She would go from being ok, to awful - her word would get slurred.

    It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift".

    Would you try another book from Meghan O’ Brien and/or Alicyn Aimes?

    I would read another book by Meghan O'Brien/Alicyn Aimes.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The way Dana and Laurel meet could have been more developed. By the end I didn't care if they had more sex or not. It seemed like that's all they did. I would have really enjoyed more back story and how they interact with the outside world.


    What aspect of Alicyn Aimes’s performance would you have changed?

    She did a wonderful job


    Could you see Thirteen Hours being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no clue, it would be a 'R' movie.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was fine, the narration was great, Alycyn did a good job. Believe it or not, I would have enjoyed more story and less sex (I never thought I'd say that). The book was more of a timeline of Dana and Laurel's sex life - it took you from one escapade to another.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men - a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be. Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess.

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    What did you like best about The Warlord Wants Forever? What did you like least?

    The story never really gets off the ground. I'd give it a C out of an A+ series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kresley Cole? Why or why not?

    I've listened to the rest of the series, and it's fantastic!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The Narrator did a good job.


    Was The Warlord Wants Forever worth the listening time?

    The book is good to listen to, if for nothing else - to get a jump off point for the rest of the series.

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    What aspect of Angela Dawe’s performance would you have changed?

    The narrator didn't show any inflection - and made the story sound grim.

    The last thing Colin McDowell wants is to inherit his Aunt Geraldine's mansion in the San Juan islands off the coast of Washington. As the pack leader of the Trevelyans in Scotland, he has little time to travel halfway around the world to take care of his inheritance.But the trip takes a pleasant turn when he meets Luna Reynaud, the young secretary his aunt hired shortly before she died. He isn't sure which surprises him more - Luna's clever plan for turning the mansion into a resort, or the fact that she's drop-dead gorgeous.

    Narrator has a hard tim keeping with accents, and needs to pay attention to what a Southern, and Scottish accent really sound like.

    John Carter, an American Civil War veteran, goes prospecting in Arizona and, when set upon by Indians, is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has demigod-like strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. He is soon captured by "Tharks", the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants, and his incredible adventures begin.

    Glenn says: "Well done"
    "The story was good"

    Jim Killavey didn't work as a narrator for me. I felt like he was reading a text book.
