    "OMG, Can I be a guardian too!!"
    If you could sum up Night Reigns in three words, what would they be?

    Simply Fangtastic Irrestible


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene in the book is when Marcus finally discovers Ami secret. It was a such an intense and passionate moment.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hooked with this series when I read Darkness Dawns. It just keeps getting better with ever book. It adds just the right amount of action, mystery and passion, but gives you something to laugh about also. The interaction between Seth and his guardians is priceless.

    "What a rush..."
    Would you listen to Night Reigns again? Why?

    Already did, have and will probably listen again!


    What other book might you compare Night Reigns to and why?

    Darkness Dawns, Blood Born - genre mostly and also a good second book to Darkness Dawns - I really enjoy the character development and not forgetting Roland and Sarah in this series.


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

    When she reads you can just "see" the expression the tone and modulation is spot on. The take on the accents is something I wouldn't experience.


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

    Almost did.... :)


    Any additional comments?

    Getting ready to listen to it again - as I wait impatiently for #3 to be available here!

    "Smart, funny and engaging"
    What did you love best about Night Reigns?

    I've read a lot of paranormal crap. Some books are just copycats of other successful storylines. This series is completely unique and well thought out. I had to often stop myself from listening for fear of listening to the whole thing too fast.


    What other book might you compare Night Reigns to and why?

    Again, this one stands out on it's own. The humour and tension are well timed. The characters are people I'd like to meet. I'm a fan of JR Ward's work, so anyone into her will be happy with this.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with Seth in it. I'm totally into that guy.


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

    I'm a graphic designer so I could make the movie poster instead. I'd leave the words to someone else.


    Any additional comments?

    I have put in my calendar when the next one comes out. Thats the sign of a good series I say.

    Her ability to provide unique voices for each character that brought them to life.

    "Darness Dawns and Night Reigns are great books"

    I read both books in this series in 3 days. These books were very entertaining and worth the credits. The narrator did a pretty good job. I reccomend both books and am looking forward to the next one.

    "Superb narration but the story... not so much."

    I was absolutely blown away by the awesomeness of Darkness Dawns so when I found myself in a reading slump I decided to give Night Reigns a try hoping that it would jump start my book reading engine. Once again, Kirsten Potter's superb narration skills left me hanging on her every word; unfortunately Dianne Duvall's story did not have the same effect. I still thoroughly enjoyed this installment but the chemistry between Ami and Marcus is no where near as compelling as Sarah and Roland's. Even though this novel isn't on the same level as its predecessor it still did manage to get me interested in reading again.

    The mystery surrounding Ami's character had my head a buzz with possibilities up until the end when Duvall sheds some light on this enigma. She has both vampiric and immortal qualities and yet I still wasn't able to figure her out without Dianne's help. I enjoyed this side-plot more than the main one. My curiosity was overwhelming and I do love a book that makes you think! After finishing Darkness Dawns I was anxious to learn Marcus' tale but that feeling slowly died as this story progressed. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on what exactly dampened my feelings for Grayden; perhaps it's because the focus was more on Amiriska. Either way, I was disappointed by the lack of attention Marcus received in this installment. He's a fascinating character with a heart wrenching back story and I wish that he'd been portrayed better or at the very least shared the spotlight with Ami.

    The main plot is well-developed and ties in with what happened in book 1. Bastien was defeated in the previous installment so Duvall had to introduce a new big bad. Her choice was a good one and really helped with the continuation of the story. The non-stop action and steamy romp scenes that I've come to expect from this series are back for another round in Night Reigns. Plus, readers get a few more snippets as to the origins of immortals and I must say, I like where this series is going!

    I've only experienced a handful of books audio-style but Kirsten Potter is hands down my favorite narrator so far. She seamlessly switches between characters while making slight adjustments to her tone so that it's easy to identify who's saying what. I absolutely adored Potter's sound effects; from the vibrating cellphone to the ringing door bell. It's rare to come across a woman who not only makes sound effects but who's actually good at them. I think part of the reason why I'm diggin' this series so much is because of the narrator.

    Overall this book left me feeling lukewarm. I enjoyed watching Ami open up and make a home for herself among the immortals and the preternatural battles left me in awe but the romance between the two main characters paled in comparison to what Roland and Sarah shared in the first book. I'm reluctant to give this series up just yet because of how much I loved Darkness Dawns. I'm still holding out hope that this series will bounce back but knowing that Bastien's story is up next has me feeling skeptical. Night Reigns was an enjoyable read but it was no Darkness Dawns.

    "Terrific!"
    If you could sum up Night Reigns in three words, what would they be?

    Even though it sometimes seems as if I am missing information, what I am seeking shows up eventually. It was the same with the first book as well. I felt like I had the story, but not the explanation until later in the book. I love that about them. It's like your waiting for a surprise gift, wondering when it will arrive. A nice stay at home winter read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Reigns?

    Finding out about Amy was a surprise.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Seth because I can't wait to hear about him.


    Any additional comments?

    Kirstin Potter does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. Her voice is easy to listen to. I can easily differentiate between the characters without thinking about it and her voice is very clear on my ipod.
