Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before - the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted - and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries.

Though there were some things on this book that rang true of Nora Roberts writing style and subject matter, thus book seemed to be a new journey for her. The combination of her story and Julia Whelan’s narration created a winner.

Not long ago, Scott Bryant would have described himself as an ordinary guy. But one act of heroism has changed his life forever - or at least until the apocalypse occurs.

Suddenly and inexplicably possessed of superhuman strength, Scott finds himself allied with the enigmatic and alluring Melanie Regan in a quest to find the mysterious Oracle in hopes of averting the absolute destruction that threatens.

I chose this book because Heather Graham is one of my favorite authors. Little did I know that it was science fiction, and I do not like science fiction...until now. Thus book was excellently written and performed. I listened to it in one day.

Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

Once again the dynamic duo of Harper and Ronconi hit it out of the park. The characters that Molly Harper creates are so well developed. Amanda Ronconi takes the characters and expands their characters and personalities to make them feed the reader’s imagination. This book, as well as all of the Harper/Ronconi Audible books, are full of entertainment and humor value.

When a brooch is broken, some of its magic is lost. When NYPD detective JL O'Grady is invited to be her brother's plus-one at Montgomery Winery's end-of-harvest gala, she plans to enjoy a fabulous weekend in Napa drinking wine, enjoying sunset dinners on the veranda, and watching her brother's high school basketball tournament. Instead, she's pulled into a murder investigation hauntingly similar to a New York City racketeering and drug case that nearly ended her career.

I have read many series, usually trilogies, but the Brooch series is the best one yet. It appears that there are many more brooches to be discovered, and the family will continue to grow. I look forward to traveling back to the early 1900s in NYC in the next book. Bruce my it on!

But when a serendipitous twist of fate at a quaint B&B brings her face-to-face with Elliott Fraser, a wealthy and respected Scotsman, Meredith might just slow down for the first time in her life.

I have read the books about the ruby broach and the sapphire broach. This book filled a gap regarding Elliott that could not have been done with a broach story. I have not been disappointed with any of the books in this series and look forward to the final book about the emerald broach.

This is one of Nora Robert's best series. It is made even better with Susan Ericksen's narration. Susan is perfect at narrating stories that need both American and Celtic accents. When Cain or Pit spoke, I heard Rourke's voice from the J. D. Robb books. Nora Roberts and Susan Ericksen - a perfect team!
