    The ladies of the town won't stop whispering about deliciously wicked Jack Dodger - once a thieving street urchin, now the wealthy owner of London's most exclusive gentleman's club. Olivia, Duchess of Lovingdon, would never associate with such a rogue. So when Jack is named sole heir to the duke's personal possessions, the beautiful, well-bred lady is outraged. Now, Olivia is forced to share her beloved home with this despicable man. But Olivia's icy disdain is no match for Jack's dangerous charm.

    I've read other books that have this type of plot..really! And those have better women protagonist then this one..I like a heroine that is at least able to take care of herself, and fight for her children and mate not the type waiting to be saved kind of person... check out S.E. Smith or Laurann Dohner ,..they've got better characters especially kicked-@.. women who don't take to being hurt or have their men hurt either..those are a better read than women who wait to be rescued. Sorry..not a keeper.

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    After reading Acheron and listening to his story it's hard to get into this story knowing that before you even start the book it's going to be pure horror at what Styxx would be going through in his childhood. I love a good story but I can't get into books that have the main characters go through pain and suffering over and over again. I mean talk about childhood traumas!!! I had to skip through some of these pages, try to skip through the horrors that my imagination was forming just listening to this story.., I'm not sure I would want to listen to this story again...I wish someone would tell Ms. Kenyon that a good story is when readers would want to read it or listen to it over and over again..but a bad story is when people read it or listen to it and throw the book away never wanting to even remember the story...I mean she kept going on and on compounding abuse over and over again each one worse than the last one...a person who reads or listens to the book can only endure so much pain and suffering and horror at what the main character is going through. I mean it's enough to know that there are real monsters out there(people who enjoy abusing and hurting others)..Do we really need to read it or listen to it too? Ms. Kenyon must enjoy wallowing in pain and suffering because she constantly writes about it.. :(

    Would you listen to Broken Soul again? Why?

    I just finished reading the book and read it again..I will definitely listen to "Black Arts" and "Broken Soul" again just to continue the story until the new audible comes out on Tuesday!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything..! especially the developing relationship with Bruiser and Jane!


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Eli.. he's been supportive of Jane ever since he signed on with her..he never questions or disapprove any of her decisions, never second guess her motivations or try to undermine her position..and never turned away from what she was when he knew she was not human he just accepted her as she is...He's would have been the perfect mate for her but I guess the author wanted someone else supernatural that could match her and her beast..


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

    When Jane realized that Rick wasn't worth the pain..! I hope shes moved on..and stay with Bruiser. I had read Rick's character on the first book, " Skinwalker" and I knew he wasn't worthy of Jane..never was..!


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the epilogue could have been longer..I wanted to know more about what happened when the aftermath of the big fight was done..and whether there was any fall out about Jane staking Leo for trying to kill her when things settled down and the clean up and re-building hard started again and what happened to the hatch-ling after freeing her from her captivity..all that was a loose end that wasn't answered by the short epilogue! But...the good news is the newest Jane Yellowrock book is coming out two days from now so I hope these questions gets answered on the next book!! I hope this little commentary of mine doesn't ruin the book for other people because I tell you all right now it is worthy of your time to read the book or listen to this audiobook and be glad the next one is coming out within two days of this review :D

    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

    I'm really really tired of the relationship angst it's like faith is writing a romance novel instead of the urban fantasy that this is suppose to be...get on with the story...and stop with the love triangle already...Jane is suppose to be a strong woman and confident of herself and her skills although socially inept at relationships but more and more the story is all about her angst ,about her relationship with her boyfriend and her attraction to another guy...it's like she turned into this insipid woman..wondering about her boyfriend..wondering what he's doing where he is, who's he with...if he's thinking about her...checking her cellphone to see if he called...urgggh! enough already...!..If i wanted to read a romance novel I would've purchased one instead of this book..! As it is I had to fast forward through some of the pages when she's thinking about rick or brusier just to get to the main story line..!

    In a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist), it takes a very unusual woman to call it home. By day, Mercy Thompson is a car mechanic in Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shape-shifter with some unusual talents, Mercy's found herself maintaining a tenuous harmony between the human and the not-so- human on more than one occasion. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

    Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

    What was most disappointing about Patricia Briggs’s story?

    I don't understand why she choose to have a love triangle and an immature girl/woman to have the alpha males be interested in. Female character is arrogant and egotistical, supposedly she is a coyote and is lower than pack but the female character still try to challenge the other wolves.The only reason the female lead doesn't get killed is because she is protected by Adam who claimed her as mate even if it's in name only.This makes her arrogant enough to try bullying the other wolves in the pack. This doesn't make her strong it makes her pathetic, she's only alive because of the mate claim by Adam and because Bran the marrok has her under his protection and rather than earn the other wolves respect by treating those in the pack with respect and maturity, she tries teasing them by looking them in the eyes and spouting insults essentially bullying them to do as she tells them to do.


    Any additional comments?

    If Samuel and Adam are supposedly alpha wolves and third and fourth to the Marrok, why is it that time and time again they still have to be rescued by the coyote? Really? what's the point in this story, the woman is smarter and stronger than the men? Or the arrogance of a woman who's trying to prove she can do better than a man and yet doesn't see that it is only through their protection that she gets away with things she does? Why couldn't the author make the characters equal to each other or bolster the other's weaknesses, so that they are stronger together rather on their own? That's my opinion..i know it's just a story... but this could've been better...

    What three words best describe Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Not the right narrator for this story!! Her voice is pleasant enough not too high and squeaky nor is it low and scratchy but it's too soft and gentle as if she's narrating to young people and must sound gentle so as not to scare them. Plus there's no sense of individual character no depth to each person. I had to start the book on chapter one over and over again because I just drift off and think of something else instead of getting into the story. Her voice doesn't do this book justice. I have this book in paperback and eBook and kept wishing for the audible version and now when I get the audible version I'm wishing for a different narrator!!! I guess I have to just read the book if I want to revisit the story and the characters!! I just wish the audible version had a better narrator.!

    YES!!! PLEASE GET A BETTER NARRATOR...preferably Alexandra Harris or Rene Raudman..!!

    I never thought I'd use these words to describe a character but the main female lead IS truly TSTL!! There are at least two situations that she went into that could have had her killed off instantly first she goes to a killer's house to investigat then she goes into an alley in both situations, she goes by herself ...! HOW SMART IS THAT??!! I thought that this was a good book based on the reviews.... NOT!!!!! And the narrator's pronunciation of the main male character's name it sounds as if she' saying 'RO-MAN" sometimes i can distinctly hear her say "RO-MERE". Which is it exact?!

He’s not only sharing the case but sparking memories of their long-ago night of passion, when feelings were left unspoken and hearts were broken.

    Audio book publishers should have a rating for the narrators, that way they know who people want to narrate their favorite book. It would have been worth it if the narrators have a pleasant voice who could also act out the story through their voices..I wish audible could give feed back to these book publishers ...It's a shame that a good book is spoiled by the narrator.
