The story is stupid but is made unbearable by the horrible narrator. I will never listen to another book by either.

Two sisters, bound by impossible choices, are determined to protect each other - no matter the cost. James's frozen face melts into a smile. "Do you want to know the trick to getting in trouble under the watchful eye of a psychic?" I think of the nailed-shut windows. I think of Clarice. I think of the two, the two, the two who are now zero. Tap tap. "Yes, I absolutely do." "Don't plan it. Don't even think about it. The second you get an inkling of what you could do, do it then. Never plan anything ahead of time. Always go on pure instinct." I smile. "I think I can do that."

It was a nice change to have something different and unpredictable. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. The characters are interesting and not one dimensional. It is hard to determine who is good and who is bad since they have qualities and moments of both. The story has believable twists and turns so it keeps you on your toes.

A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

I stayed up late and listened to this book all in one day. You feel invested in the characters from the beginning and feel like you are going along the journey with them. It deals with some difficult topics in a believable way without being over-the-top. The narrator was good. She was able to give each character personality and her male voices were fairly good.

Heading off for a weekend in Las Vegas with her friends, Jessie Ralle has only one worry: how to make it through the road trip in the same car as her ex, Jimmy Kelter. The guy she hasn’t come close to getting over since he broke up with her five months ago. The guy who’s finally ready to tell her why he did it, because now he wants her back. Only, sometimes knowing why doesn’t actually make things better. Sometimes it leads to bigger, more terrifying questions.

I had never read any of Christopher Pike's books prior to this book. I am looking forward to reading/listening to more of his work. Witch World was not the typical witch book. The story is surprising. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

This story like the rest of the series had more potential than was delivered and was superficial and predictable although not as predictable as the first 3 books. I thought it was good as long as your expectations aren't too high. It was entertaining. The beginning was weird since one of it's main characters had never been mentioned before and neither had the villain but it get better as it went on. The characters were likable and it was nice to see a little more of the main characters in the previous books. Hawthorne did do a better job with the main characters for this book than she did in the previous books. The same problem as with the previous books was that there still wasn't enough background either in the main characters and the history of the shifters and the new villain. It was still annoying that "humans" were referred to as "statics" although it wasn't as frequent as in the first two books. It was extremely disappointing that the author didn't put more effort into it. I've said that in the reviews for the all of the books in the series so far but kept hoping each book would improve since that is typically what happens in a series. I expect the world that was created to evolve as the series goes on giving you more insight into both the characters and world that are created. I did purchase all the books in the series before I started listening to them and don't like to give up on a series I will glad the 4th book was an improvement on the 3rd book.

Brittany is determined to prove herself to the Dark Guardians. And yet she's been keeping a devastating secret: She hasn't experienced any of the intense, early signs of change that mark a Dark Guardian's transformation. The only intense feelings she has are for Connor - and she's kept that a secret, too. But she knows she'll never truly have Connor's love if she's not a Shifter like him.

"Supposedly, dreams reflect our hidden fears and secret desires, all clamoring for attention. The one I'd had last night had been so vivid that even now, as evening drew near, it still made me squirm in my chair. I sat against a wall in the counsel room where the elders and the Dark Guardians - protectors of our society - were discussing how best to ensure our survival. Because I hadn't yet experienced my first transformation, I was considered a novice and was not allowed to sit at the large, round table with the others...."

Blessed (or cursed) with an ability to understand animals, the Lass has always been an oddball. And when an isbjorn (polar bear) seeks her out, and promises that her family will become rich if only the Lass will accompany him to his castle, she doesn't hesitate. But the bear is not what he seems, nor is his castle, which is made of ice and inhabited by a silent staff of servants.

This story was more of a traditional fairy tale than what I was expecting (hoping for). The narrator was dull and didn't add to the story. It felt like I was being read a bedtime story by my sister. I was hoping for a lot more.

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship - or an early grave.

Slow start but worth reading through to the end. It could have used a little more development for some of the characters but the overall story made it ok hoping there will be more in the next book. I also wished there were more detail in certain areas but again can understand it would have been too much to put into one book and will have to wait until the next book to fill in more detail.

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

The Narrator did a good job with the performance but would have been better if the male voices were more masculine and more distinctive.
