Supernaturals are out of the closet but I have to stay hidden because of the type of magic I possess. I’m a Legacy. It sounds like the title should come with reverence, a trust fund, or at the very least a cool backstory—instead it comes with a death sentence. I have to hide in plain sight and pretend to be just human. I’m pretty good at it. I live a simple and somewhat normal life, and I work in antique acquisitions. Everything’s going fine until a dangerous and enchanted dagger that was once in my possession is stolen. I didn’t think things could get any worse until I woke up next to a dead shifter, fae, and mage, without any memory of the past twenty-four hours. Considered guilty of murder by most of the magical community and humans, I must work with Gareth, the sexy and dangerous leader of the Supernatural Guild.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES! Levy is an amazing female lead, she is so strong and independent and now she's learning that the world of secrets she's always lived in is going to have to change.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Levy for sure, she's so fierce and challenges the people around her and is always true to herself. She's a great character to carry this story and series.

Have you listened to any of Stacey Glemboski’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not, but I really enjoyed her performance of this book and would listen to more books she has done.

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

Yes, it definitely was intriguing and quickly grasped the listeners interest. Who is Levy? Why is she hiding? How long will this last? And so much more.

Any additional comments?

The characters in this book are all amazing, Gareth is a challenging alpha male character who questions Levy and sees through her lies, but he lets her think he knows less than he does because I think he realizes that the secrets she holds are keeping her safe. Her best friend Savannah is so loyal towards her and is a spitfire vamp lover. This was such a fun book and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! This series is amazing, Mackenzie Grey is a funny, passionate character who doesn't take crap from anyone and she just keeps moving forward. The supporting characters are fun to follow and the unwavering support all the characters have for each other is what we all strive to find in life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Caged?

Mackenzie's character is just coming into her own and she fights for what she believes in, even after people try to knock her down and break her spirit. It's hard to pick one memorable moment but I love when she comes back to New York and Bash and Jonah's reactions.

Which character – as performed by Nicole Poole – was your favorite?

Nicole Poole is such a great narrator, I've listened to a couple of her series she's preformed and she's also fun to listen to. I like the sarcasm she puts into Jackson's banter, he's a fun character for sure.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

After the time she spent in the abandoned subway tunnels. That was hard to get through, as was her struggles after the fact.

Any additional comments?

This series is so fun and I'm so invested in the characters. All the relationships that are developing as well as the action and adventure, the changes Mackenzie is fighting for with the Luna's, it's just a great series with so much potential for more.

If you could sum up Moon Cursed in three words, what would they be?

What a rush!

What other book might you compare Moon Cursed to and why?

Seven series by Dannika Dark.

Did Jorjeana Marie do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

She does a great job differentiating the characters. My only complaint with her is that she reads soooo slow. I had to change my listening speed to 1.25x to make it through and that helped. Sometimes it sounds a little off since it is sped up, but it's not bad and she is a good enough narrator, that's just my only complaint.

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

Yes! There has been so much character development and so many things left unanswered.

Any additional comments?

Sky has changed so much throughout the series and I'm really appreciating her character development and growth. It's been so enjoyable following her in this series, learning how to be in a pack but still staying true to herself. The relationship developments have come so far as well and I am here for all of it and can't wait for book 6. This is a great series to get into for those who love the shifter/magical world.

Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

I loved being back in Mac's head, and getting back to a more mature outlook on things. Great narrations like always from these two.
