    Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally.

    Dane Gareis is a wealthy, reclusive young man with a traumatic past, but a spine of steel. When his father is killed in a mysterious plane crash, Dane carries on the family business and continues his passion for the very antiquity that got his father murdered - a golden sarcophagus belonging to an ancient cult known as the Ydrath. Soon, the Ydrath threaten him as well, and Dane seeks to hire a bodyguard he can trust. Someone who can protect him, and someone who will respect his boundaries.

    If you could sum up The Artifact in three words, what would they be?

    Complex, haunting, eerie


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sean, the inner dialogue and perhaps the catalyst


    Have you listened to any of Chris Patton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I adore Chris Patton's narration. He pauses in just the right place, delivers the dialogue crisp and full of emotion. I have begun looking at all the books I notice he narrates.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was like a great old fashion horror movie. one where it wasn't just about mutilation, where the story rolled out with enough " mysterious incidents" to continually drive the story forward.


    Any additional comments?

    X. Aratare writes a fascinating scintillating horror story, that also has haunting realistic characters with depths of intrigue and flaws . I'm looking forward to hearing the next installment.

    Set during the height of World War II, The German examines the effect a series of ritualistic murders has on a small, Texas community. A killer preys on the young men of Barnard, Texas, leaving cryptic notes written in German. As the panic builds all eyes turn toward a quiet man with secrets of his own, who is trying to escape a violent past.

    What made the experience of listening to The German the most enjoyable?

    the absolute story itself gripped and held me, the horror ,m the intrigue the sadness.


    What other book might you compare The German to and why?

    I really cant come up with anything offhand, It was stand alone in many respects. the prejudice, the murders the commentary of bias of humans.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Schine – was your favorite?

    well obviously the german himself. I can empathize with his troubles, the way others are quick to judge and all the kindness performed is forgotten in a breath.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The true horror of war at home


    Any additional comments?

    I was reluctant to purchase this title for a while, but man , I am glad I did. It sucks you in in the first 20 minutes and holds you there. I don't wish to give any spoilers, but try this book, it wont disappoint.

    When a half-century old skeleton tumbles out of the wall in the midst of the renovation of Cloak and Dagger Bookstore renovation, Adrien turns to hot and handsome ex-lover Jake Riordan -- now out-of-the closet and working as a private detective. Jake is only too happy to have reason to stay in close contact with Adrien, but there are more surprises in Adrien's past than either one of them expects -- and one of them may prove hazardous to Jake's own heart.

    Awesome, Mysterious , Funny


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adrien I love his sardonic wit and its well exemplified it this series. Hes smart and sexy too .


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the boat scene at the end of novel, It broke me down, built me up and broken me again. damn fine writing when a listener is so invested in the characters


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I ran around all day doing so, and found myself listening to the entire series AGAIN. Chris Patton is a terrific narrator, each voice he used for the characters stayed the same the entire series and i knew the minute i heard the voice whom was speaking. Josh Lanyon weaves an incredible story, with realistic male and female characters kudos


    Any additional comments?

    I can say enough praises about these stories or the perfection of the vocal representation. Im sold I auto buy Josh Lanyon's stories and audiobooks.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kane, I enjoyed his rows with dude, and this allowed me to envision him as a neighbor perhaps. realistic


    What does Tristan James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his voice is wonderful and the irish brogue is great. I think truly he made the story come alive. I did have a little bit of trouble telling some of the Morgan boys apart, but wonderfully done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't honestly know what to expect with this book, but it turned out to be the right amount of humor, intrigue and romance. Plus DUDE was terrific
