Very entertaining, lots of Intrigue and suspense. Definitely recommend

Sergeant Vila Kiprik has survived many brutal missions during his 30-year army career, but this last posting to Demon's Deep is his deadliest yet. Top brass need the mine working again for its rare quartz deposits, but the miners have gone AWOL, replaced by crazed savages. Kiprik and his squad have been charged with taking back control, but this is no ordinary drive. Sinister forces more deadly than madmen hunt them in the shadows, and that retirement up in the Duchy mountains soon begins to look like a pipe dream.

Overall I enjoyed this book. It has one of my triggers which is dog fighting. I had a hard time getting past that and skipped two chapters to make sure I was past it. But the storyline was good the narration was amazing. Kiprik is more complex then I first thought. Lots of action and good plot kept me interested all the way to the end.

I loved this book. I was hooked from the very first page.I loved i Izzy’s character and I am so jealous I don’t have any magic. Her and Rye had chemistry from the beginning. Witches and shifters, a goddess and an immortal a pack of bears and wolves all combine brought a unique storyline definitely for those over 18 as the six scenes are quite steamy. Can’t wait for the next book in the series and I am definitely moving to Silver Lake. The narration was very good, he did a great job flowing in and out of characters

I love love love this series! I was captivated with the Lovers which is book 1 of the series and fell in Love with Quinn immediately. I really like the two different time periods hundreds of years apart and the unhorse does a very good job weaving in and out of the two. The story is so tragically heartbreaking that I actually cried several tikes in both this book and the first book as well. I love the detail the author provides as it makes the story so visual to me (if that makes sense) and once again I don’t think there is a more perfect narrator for this series then Wendy Wolfson. I am very picky about my narrators and don’t rate them a 5 easily but she IS the perfect choice for this book. I couldn’t wait for the next book so I bought the ebook for book 3 so I could read the series when I was unable to listen. Crazy I know but that’s how much I love the series. I would love to see this turned in to a movie and I can’t wait four more days for book 4 to come out!!!!!

What a great follow up to Witches! I loved the first book so much so I couldn’t wait to see what Amanda was up to and learn about Lizzie. Witches 11 did not disappoint. I love the new characters and seeing where everyone else is 10 years later. I especially love Armadas in this book. He’s personality really came through. The story is very well written, the characters are well developed and real. I loved the ending and I am hopeful for book 3
The narrator was ok, she flowed in and out of characters very well.

I seriously loved this book! The twist and turns kept me on my toes every time I thought I had things figured out. Victory is. Strong female FBI agent grieving the loss of her husband. The two cases she is simultaneously working on are full of murder, Intrigue paranormal abilities and more! It’s hard to write a review without spoilers so I’ll just say if you are into paranormal drama real life scenarios full of intrigue and suspense this is definitely a book for you. Can’t wait for the next book.

The story line is a 10 but I’m rating a 4 as the narration is just ok. Don’t let that discourage you as the story is excellent

A fairytale ball with a not-so-happy ending. A company that secretly experiments on the minds of the mentally ill. The Angel of Death with a deathwish of her own. Monsters who can kill with just one look into their eyes. These are just some of the stories When Night Falls has to offer. Fast-paced, thrilling, and filled to the brim with darkness and characters driven by the voices in their head, this collection focuses on the darker side of life. Trigger Warning: Not for the faint of heart. This collection contains stories that deal with difficult subject matter.

I enjoyed these stories. I found them to be creepy to the point I couldn’t listen to them driving home alone at dark. I really enjoyed the dark angel and the senators daughter. I did find it difficult to know when one
story ended and another began. I would have like a more defined ending but they were enjoyable and I thought the narrator was spot on

This is the start to a great series! It’s got everything I love in the book, Royal shifters, love betrayal, prophecies and stolen artifacts . Lillian is a banished shifter princess who hooks up with a warrior from a rival shifter clan. Her sister has just become queen which causes tension when Lillian is banished. I was hooked from the beginning listening to the book in two days. I though the narrator did. Great job bringing the story to life. Defiantly recommend this one
