    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    Where does Affliction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoy listening to Laurel K. Hamilton's series on audiobook mainly because Kimberly Alexis is the voice I hear when I think of Anita. There are a few books I have listened to and wondered why that narrator was selected but there is no questioning the choice here.


    What other book might you compare Affliction to and why?

    All of the other books in the series. Anita is in a world all her own. I guess you could say if you want something similar you could listen to Kim Harrison's Rachael Morgan series. Strong lead character who turns out to be more than you ever thought she would be.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say without spoilers.


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not prepared for a plea for acceptance from Mrs. Hamilton's open marriage then this may not be the book for you. It toed the line for me simply because I saw it for what it was and didn't like that she took a beloved character of mine and turned her into a launching pad. I love the escapism alloted by these novels.

    Three angels - Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human - are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments. Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them.

    Would you try another book from Alexandra Adornetto and/or Alexandra Adornetto?

    No.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    She shouldn't have read the book herself. Her voice is unpleasant and grating.


    What didn’t you like about Alexandra Adornetto’s performance?

    Her voice. She had such a whiny childish tone and I couldn't listen to it for very long. Turned me off to the rest of the series.


    Do you think Halo needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I didn't like this one.

    Without giving anything away... be careful what you wish for.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    His voice! So sexy.


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

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina - stripped of his precious timepiece andhis memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who could help him. In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

    Would you try another book from Gena Showalter and/or Genvieve Bevier?

    Absolutely! However, this is not Mrs. Showalter's best work. This book was lacking in plot. It was sexy but I was looking for the depth of character I am so used to finding in her novels.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Had some semblance of a plot line.


    Which character – as performed by Genvieve Bevier – was your favorite?

    Nicolai


    Do you think Lord of the Vampires needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know it has a follow up, in fact, it has several. I am not as eager to pick them up as much as I have been about her other works.
