The first two stories were really good. Based on this book, I will read the series by Nalini Singh. I found it very interesting. It was nicde having a Sookie book without Sookie.
I did not enjoy the second stories as well. They were well written and Johanna did a great job with the naration, they just were not what I enjoy.
Ms Parker is such an excellent narrator. I first loved her with the Sookie Stackhouse series. She will always be the voice of Sookie for me. It was nice hearing her do other stories as well.
It would be hard to be made into a movie or TV series because it contains four short stories from established series. They could make a one-off True Blood movie off the Non-Sookie story.
Ilona Andrews book was great as usual.
Was surprised at how good Meljean Brooks was. I had not listened to any of her other books before. Well written and delivered. Nalini Singh's story was ok. Charlaine Harris story was a disappointment.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Truthfully I just bought this for the Ilona Andrews book. But since it comes with four stories I must not waste my money.
The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris. Part of the Sookie Stackhouse series. I listened to this book some time ago when I was listening to Sookie Stackhouse books. It sucked then so I skipped it this time around. Definitely not worth a second time around. 2 hrs 17 mins.
Angels' Judgement by Nalini Singh. Prequel in the Guild Hunter series. Sarah's story. I read the first 4 books in this series so I was familier with the story line, otherwise it might have be a bit confusing. 2 hrs 22 mins.
Magic Mourns by Ilona Andrews. #3.5 order in Kate Daniels series. When Raphael gets together with Andrea Nash's. Lots of entertainment packed into a short novella. I recently reread all of Kate Daniels series and realized there are about three short stories that I have missed. I quickly remedied that. Best if read in order. 2 hrs 41 mins.
Blind Spot by Meljean Brooks. #8 order in the Guardian series. I was leery at first about listening to this since it was in the middle of a series and I was afraid it might have spoilers or make me confused on the story line. Luckily this novella can stand alone, while I see where there is more to the series it was mild, which made me enjoy the story. Overall enjoyable. 2 hrs 26 mins.
I have always enjoyed the narrator.
The theme is that all of the stories have hellhounds in them but they are all different.
Some stories are very good and some are lukewarm. Same with the narrators but it is worth the purchase. Same goes for magazines.
audiobook junkie, listen to at least 2 a week-- in traffic, while cleaning, laundry, boredom.. Fav is paranormal, romance, erotica...
It is a good light, very light, PG-13 listen. Nothing to swoon over but it gets you through a traffic jam. Not all the stories even had hellhounds in them, so that was a stretch and seemed forced by the publisher. The romances were light, character mostly interesting, sex-scenes very YA-- not gonna get the blood pumping thats for sure. Nalini Singh was, of course, the best story of the lot-- but i am a big fan of hers so no surprise there. I have not read Harris previously-- & not sure i want to after this short story. Andrews: I read one of her books and now might go back and give her another try! Brook-- well she might surprise us one of these days.
Overall, not bad, but certainly nothing earth shattering or to write a gushing review about. Good clean fun, as they say.
These are great stories by some wonderful and popular authors- I read this book a couple of times and decided to spend the credit- I knew the entertainment I was getting.
Johanna Parker gives an excellent performance- with the exception of pronouncing valet as val-et with an e and hard 't' instead of the French way va-lay. Do they not do a sound edit just like they would edit a written page?
Regardless, I found this book a good deal and the cost of a credit. Enjoy!
