Winning had never been the plan. I just wanted to go home. I still do. Now, I'm in too deep. With my conversion only days away, the count down has begun. When it hits zero, I lose. My only hope is to rely on the one who brought me here in the first place. A few unlikely friends might make all the difference between the Fold winning and a revolution. If I can stay alive that long.
This is an excellent series of books. It is highly entertaining and enjoyable without the author relying on vulgarity sexual conduct or offensive language. I highly recommend this novel as well as The entire series to anyone young or old who enjoys a good book.
The complete set of the When Tomorrow Calls series is now available on audiobook, including Why You Were Taken, How We Found You, and What Have We Done. Experience JT Lawrence's chilling vision of the all-too-near future.
This is a great value for one credit. Although I found the first book to be a little slow the third book in the series more than made up for it. I highly recommend this book. I received this book at no cost to me from the author, publisher, or narrator all opinions are my own.
Years earlier, John Tracker fled the insanity of his family and their house, a centuries-old monstrosity that his grandfather Theophilus rigged full of hallucinatory tricks and vicious death traps designed to capture the Devil. Now middle-aged, John receives word that the place is to be demolished to make way for a freeway, and he decides to revisit it with his girlfriend Amy Griffith before its destruction. But when a blizzard traps them inside the house, they will be forced to contend with the dangers hidden within: strange time-shifts, murderous traps, and more.
This novel had so much potential at the beginning. I felt that the story lost everything in the overdone telling of the family lineage. By the time that I finished with the family lines the book had lost all of its appeal to me. I received this book at no cost for a honest review

Dr. Mitchell Oberon has been married to her surgical work for too long. So, she resists being attracted to a brain-damaged patient with the body of Adonis and the mind of a child.
This is a fun, light, easy love story. If you are looking for a fun romance this is the book for you. I received this review copy from the author, narrator , or publisher. All opinions are my own

Elliot Jefferson moved to the isolated Estates of North Hills to work on his sobriety and avoid other people at all costs. But when the electric transformers around the complex begin emitting a horrible buzz that he calls "the Squall", neither is easy to achieve. Because some of his neighbors are acting strange. Twitching, fighting, and muttering about voices only they can hear. Soon Elliot will find himself face-to-face with the worst humanity has to offer, as wives imprison husbands, children butcher parents, and those under the Squall's influence go to insane lengths to keep their secret safe. If he wants to survive, Elliot must discover the awful truth for himself, and lead a small group of innocents to safety...before they're all just as doomed as their neighbors.
I could see where the author was going with this book, but in my opinion he fell short of the mark. I am not adverse to violence or lewd conduct when it adds to the enjoyment of the novel. To me this book relied solely on shock value to keep you listening. If you are an animal lover I urge you not to read this book! It is very hard for me to give a negative review on a book that was gifted to me however I am compelled to do so in this case. I received this book from the author, publisher, or narrator at no cost to me all opinions are my own.

The Hunger Games meets Cinderella. This fairy tale has no happy endings - only dark beginnings. They call them the Crimson Fold. High up in their castle they look down on my little world and wield a silent control. That is, until the invitations are sent out. I never dreamed I'd be selected. They tell me it's a privilege. I should be honored. But the fear in their eyes doesn't lie. If I refuse to go, my family will be shunned. If I go, my life and my body will no longer be mine. It'll be theirs. At midnight it will be over. At midnight, I'll be his.
A enjoyable yet unique take on the classic Cinderella story. The book was very enjoyable and the narration was excellent. Saying that I think that this series would probably appeal to young adults rather than The more seasoned Reader. Received this book from the author, publisher, or narrator all opinions are my own.
"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason."
I haven’t read this document since high school. It was interesting to see just how much more I got out of it as an adult. I don’t know that I would waste a credit on it, but if you can get it for under four dollars I say go for it. I received this book at no cost to me from the author, publisher, or narrator.

The Call of the Wild is a short adventure novel by Jack London published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs. By the end, he sheds the veneer of civilization, and relies on primordial instinct and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild.
This is a wonderful book that I have read and reread many times since my childhood. The only thing that is really left for me to say is that the narration and production are exemplary I received this book from the author publisher or narrator at no cost to me, all opinions are my own.

One hundred years ago, Minnie Seamer's death shocked her rural Iowa community. A young farmhand found her body hanging in the barn on a rainy summer morning in 1913. The coroner ruled it a suicide, but distraught family members were not convinced. Was it suicide or was it murder? Seeking Signs, based on actual events, is the story of a young girl's search for answers in the wake of a family tragedy. To solve the mystery of her older sister's puzzling death, 13-year-old Elsie follows tips from a booklet titled The Baum Detective Agency Course.
This is a well written book that should appeal to young girls and most women. The narration and production were of excellent quality. I enjoyed this book very much. I received this book at no cost to me by the author, publisher, or narrator. All opinions are my own
A virus was unleashed, leading to a zombie apocalypse. No one thought that people would be able to turn into such horrible, violent creatures, even just in the metaphorical sense, let alone physically. Matthew was a retired soldier who quit the army after seeing his friends die. It’s hard for him to trust anyone, but in this crisis full of zombies, he will need to trust the group he’s stuck with to survive. Genevieve and Ellie are part of his group and are on a mission to find a cure to recover humanity.
I love zombie books and can’t get hardly enough of them. I found this book to be slow paced, not so great in the action department, and more importantly to me I found it to be over all rather dull. By the end of the book I found myself not really caring what happened to any of the characters. I do not intend to read the next book in this series. One bright spot in the book was the narration I enjoyed that very much. I received this review copy at no cost to me by the author, publisher, or narrator all opinions are my own.
