but I really can't stand Cynthia Holloway. Her mispronunciations are so jarring it's hard to concentrate. I don't know if this is a good book or a bad..Show More » book. I do know that she has a tin ear for accents -- she should have just read the story instead of mangling the french and italian accents of the characters. I don't know how much choice an author has in who reads their work, perhaps none, but Holloway gets way more work than she deserves. She also savages the Chicagoland Vampire books pretty badly. Tedious and annoying is the only way to describe her reading -- not her voice, which is pleasant, but the girl needs a 'word a day' dictionary so she can improve her vocabulary -- and she should never, EVER do accents again.
If you liked the first book, Touch the Dark, you will love this one. Be warned, just as book one left you hanging at the end so will this one. I can't..Show More » wait to get book three. Hopefully audible will have it soon or I will have to go get the dead tree version

In Hunt the Moon, Cassie Palmer takes on another fantastical task, namely..Show More » kill another god (or in this case the god???s representatives). Don???t worry. This is not a repeat of the last book. In this installment of the Cassandra Palmer series, we also learn more about Cassie???s mother and father as well as more about Lord Mircea and John Pitchin. But the burning question still remains: Mircea or Pritchin? In other words, to love or to be in love? It must be ???to be in love???; therefore, it must be Pritchin. Karen Chance has outdone herself with her action-packed plot and witty narrative, and she does a wonderful job with Marco, Jonas Marsden, and Fred. The absolute worst thing about this book is the fact that it is over. I can???t wait for book 6.
