Talon Avalon is a Timecaster; a cop who is able to look back in time and view crimes that have already happened. But that was before he was framed by an alternate version of himself from another dimension. Now he's being hunted in this world, and countless parallel worlds, as the biggest mass-murderer in history. While trying to save his kidnapped wife and clear his name, Talon fights to prevent a series of mishaps that could destroy the multiverse, along with the very fabric of spacetime.

We listened to this book on a long drive across the country, and we were laughing and enjoying the story as we went. Sure the plot was silly and crazy, but it's a "Joe Kimball" story, where people get punched in the groin a lot.

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

I enjoyed this book. I anxiously awaited this book after the cliffhanger of the last book. Many of the mysteries from the series are revealed, some a was surprised by and others I was not. It concludes the story arch of the series but does leave a few loose threads for future stories in the well defined fantasy universe.

Rock Rainbow Girl!

A survey of the quirks and quandaries of the English language, focusing on our strange and wonderful grammar. Why do we say "I am reading a catalog" instead of "I read a catalog"? Why do we say "do" at all? Is the way we speak a reflection of our cultural values? Delving into these provocative topics and more, Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue distills hundreds of years of fascinating lore into one lively history.

Any student of English even, if just elementary school grammar, knows English is weird. This book help explain why and how it got that way. I loved this book.

I tutored English as a Second Language for a couple of years and I wish had known some of this before starting to tutor. It would have made explaining some of the quirks about English easier.

I enjoyed the narration as well. John McWhoter is enthusiastic about is work and that comes through to the listener.

I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons....But they're not the ones you'd expect. For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the lust and urgency only live skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases up like the folds of a fan. Tight. Personal. Ready to unravel in the heat of the moment. Unsurprisingly, my line of work brings me face-to-face with loss.

Great Characters and Story

As usual Megan Hart has created very believable characters and a great story. I have enjoyed many of her writings and Stranger is no exception to her excellent quality or work. I enjoyed the relationship of characters to Dirty.

The narrators voice is very feminine so the male voices are not the strongest. But I still enjoyed the audio book very much.
