Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in. Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier.

I was excited to find Sarah Lyons Fleming had released another book in the Until the End realm. I loved the first series and have listened to it multiple times. I must admit I love this book more than any of the three in the original trilogy and novella.

I love how real these characters were, how SLF made them loveable even with their flaws. Sylvie's and Grace's friendship is enviable. The humor between them and Sylvie and Eric is perfect. I never thought a post apocalyptic book could make me laugh out loud so many times, as well as feel fear or sadness.

This book has joined my top 5 books of all times. SLF has a real gift for words. I can't wait for the next book.

Stepbrother Billionaire is a standalone audiobook. It contains adult themes, harsh language, and graphic sexual content.

The narrator barrels through punctuation marks. She mispronounces words I learned to say in grade school. She sounds totally uninterested in the story. Maybe this is a good book, but since I only do Audible books because I don't have time to read, I'll never know.

What did you love best about City of Heavenly Fire?

The storyline and the characters have remained consistent while evolving at the same time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's a toss up between Magnus and Jace. They are sarcastic, funny, and they don't care about trying to impress anyone.

What three words best describe Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ’s voice?

For Sophie: Entertaining, Fantastic, and Talented

For Jason: Monotonous, inconsistent, and dry.

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

Yes, a tender moment between Simon and Isabel.

Any additional comments?

I very much enjoyed the story, but I am having difficulty understanding why the narrators are so DRASTICALLY different. It's bad enough that there are different narrators for most of the books, but the male narrator in this book is terrible. Sorry, but it's true. It seems like he can't make up his mind which accent to have.

In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from being her mortal enemy to becoming her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are under way against the Mageri, and one man is behind it-an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver's only concern, as someone close to her has been arrested for treason.

Would you consider the audio edition of Shine to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the dynamic between all of the characters, Silver and Logan in particular.

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

Logan, for sure!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book did make me laugh, but I also felt the angst and danger Silver suffered.

Any additional comments?

This was my first step into this type of fantasy and I loved it.
