In the second installment of the award-winning Horizon series, Dr. Caeli Crys returns to her war-torn world to fight for those she left behind. Almagest, Caeli's home, stands on the brink of revolution. Long hidden from the rest of the galaxy, the once-peaceful planet suffers under a regime that grows more violent and oppressive by the day. A resistance has risen, but they are outmanned, outgunned, and in hiding. Caeli embarks on a dangerous mission to find the Resistance, rescue her captive people, and save her civilization from destruction.

Very good storyline. Caeli and Derek together with their friends and the rebels fought hard to reclaim the freedom for Caeli's country. Exciting and tensed moments throughout. The actions and battles were fantastic. I love this series though the cliffhanger at the end was too much to endure. Now I'm waiting anxiously for the next book to come out ASAP.

Caeli Crys isn't living - she's surviving. On the run after the genocide of her empathic people, she witnesses a spaceship crash near her hidden camp. When she feels the injured pilot suffering from miles away, she can't help but risk discovery to save his life. Commander Derek Markham awakens stranded on an uncharted planet. His co-pilot is dead, his ship is in ruins, and he's only alive because a beautiful young woman is healing him with her mind. As Derek recovers, Caeli shares the horror of her past and her fear for the future.

Madison Fox is determined to reform Jamie, her half-evil pooka, but the bond linking her to Jamie works both ways. Already, it has manipulated her into bending the rules. If she continues down this path, she could doom her soul. Since her judgment can't be trusted, a high-ranking inspector now dictates Madison's every interaction with Jamie, and each directive drives them further apart. Unfortunately, Madison has bigger issues than the potential degradation of her soul.

Plots and counter plots. Interesting. Her on and off romance with Captain Matthew King is beginning to get on my nerves. The intrigues and actions are good but it would have been nicer if the rest of the team are involved at the end. Too much focus on the protagonist, IMO. Anyway it's interesting to continue with the next book.

Madison Fox survived her first week as California's newest illuminant enforcer, but if her grumpy boss, Mr. Pitt, was impressed, he hasn't told Madison. In fact, there's a lot her boss has been closemouthed about, including the dark secret haunting his past. But Madison's problems are just igniting. Neighboring regions report an uncharacteristic flare-up of evil, fire-breathing salamanders blaze unchecked across the city, and Black Friday looms. Trapped doing cleanup amid mobs of holiday shoppers, Madison watches from the sidelines as dubious allies insinuate themselves in her region.

Most enjoyable. Madison Fox is improving and getting to understand more of her abilities. She helped her warden and uncovered a revenge scheme by a rogue warden. Her pooka, Jamie is soooo likeable. I hope there will more on him. Madison's budding romance is also progressing. Good storyline by Rebecca Chastain. The narration is well done by Elise Arsenault. Very good!

Madison Fox just learned her ability to see souls is more than a sight: It's a weapon for fighting evil. The only problem is she doesn't have a clue what she's doing. On the positive side, her money problems are over, and her coworker is smoking hot. On the negative side, evil creatures now actively hunt her, and deadly experiences are becoming the norm. When she thinks it couldn't get worse, a powerful evil sets up shop at a local hotel's video game convention, and it's got its eye on more than the gaming geeks - it's hungry for Madison's soul.

Entertaining. The heroine has a kind heart though she sometimes do not obey rules and get herself into trouble. Lots of action and lots of tensed moments. Interesting concept of good against evil. I am news to the writer and I find the series very promising. Well narrated/performed by Elise Arsenault. Her voices for both males and females were good. I will continue the series and I hope there will more to come.

A very satisfying continuation. I am glad that at last Verity is progressing in her ghost hunter career. Virginia as usual is quite a bitch but she had no choice but to turn to Verity for help. All in all it quite an interesting and there were several tensed moments. Frankie can be very trying at times but this time around he behaved better towards Verity. At least her finances are improving. A good series. Well written and superbly performed by Tavia Gilbert. I hope the next book will come out soon. Worth a credit.

Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar - at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind. I'm not a badass mage like my three smokin'-hot best friends. I'm not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I'm just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits. So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

Most enjoyable. Torie is getting into more and more adventures with her three best friends. I was a bit disappointed that her romance with Aaron isn't going on more smoothly but I can understand as she's still very young. Anyway there were lots of actions and tensions throughout the story which flowed smoothly. Well performed/narrated by Chris Dukehart. Annette Marie as always is at her top form and I am looking forward to,her next book on Torie and her friends.

Southern belle Verity Long is back in business - as a ghost hunter. Now all she has to do is visit the town's creepiest mansion and exorcise a family of vengeful spirits. Piece of cake. After all, ghosts love her and need her...that is until she meets the ghosts of Rock Fall mansion. They'll do anything to keep their murderous secrets hidden within the cliffside fortress - even if that means getting rid of one meddling ghost hunter.

The story gets better and better. Angie Fox is truly a very talented writer. So well performed by Tavia Gilbert. Most enjoyable. There are lots of action and tensions. The story flows smoothly throughout. Verity is strong and with Ellys, a strong supporter. As for her Frankie, the ghost, I find him a bit self--centred though one cannot truly fault him. He is trying hard to get his freedom. Lucy, is very cute. I hope there will be more books for this series.

Well written and well narrated. The plot was interesting though it was a bit slow at the middle but it caught up towards to end. Dani is a difficult character to understand at times. The romance between her and Captain Matthew King can be rather distracting and going no where. I hope more will be revealed in the next book. As for the mystery it was good. Lots of intrigues and secrets but the truth came out eventually. Still a good start for a new series.gina LaManna wrote well and Alyson Ryan performed well with different voices for the chances. I will continue the next book which is available now.
