When you're the top wolf on the continent with the backing of the Goddess, how does an enemy topple your kingdom? By challenging you to a fight? No: by changing the rules. After 300 years of fighting and service to the Goddess, Silas Knight is the patron, alpha to the alphas on the North American continent. As the top wolf, he fears little and has seen most things. But when he discovers someone or something has been quietly disturbing the natural order of things, he's surprised.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I tried for three hours to listened to the book. I just could not listen to the anymore. I am not sure who would like this book.

Has Kushiel's Dart turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

It is not Ms. Flosnik's performance of the book. I just didn't care for the book. I purchased the book due to the special offered by Audible to possibly offer options to get interested into new series.

What character would you cut from Kushiel's Dart?

None of the characters are interesting to me.

Any additional comments?

None

"Why me? Why now?" That’s what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to friends. The book is exciting and is action packed for me. I knew as soon as i was in the middle of the book I would purchase the next book in the series. I am excited about all of the characters and the best thing is that you really don't know what is coming next. I was always anxiously waiting for the next scenes of the book.

What other book might you compare Mark of the Demon to and why?

I have no books to compare to this. This is the very first in this subject are I have listened to and I really like.

Which character – as performed by Liv Anderson – was your favorite?

The main character Kara Gillian. I like the way all of the characters work within the book.

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

I was excited about all of the book. I really liked all of the book. This is really rare for me. I really believe if i was not give, the opportunity to learn more about other series. I would have never listened to this audiobook. If it weren't for the special opportunity offered by audible this treasure would have never been found. Thank you audible.

Any additional comments?

I love the book and plan to purchase all of the books in the series and also listen to the other book the author has at audible this time.

Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

If you could sum up On the Edge in three words, what would they be?

It is a great escape for me.

What other book might you compare On the Edge to and why?

All of the books in the Edge series and the Kate Daniels Series.

Which character – as performed by Renée Raudman – was your favorite?

I love the narrator and all of the characters she brings to life. I guess that is what she does. She brings them all to life for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was. It kept me thinking throughout the book. I have all of the edge series with the exception of the second book. I am about to purchase the second book now!

Any additional comments?

I love the authors and the narrator they make a great combination, at least for me they do.

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

What disappointed you about The Werewolf's Wife?

This is one of the slowest moving stories I have every listened to. It seemed like the author is filling in events and giving detail when it isn't necessary. This is one of the weakest books I have ever listened to. If I were reading the book I wouldn't have read it past the first three pages.

What could Michele Hauf have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The action is poor. The story is boring. There are really no surprises you know where the story is going.

What didn’t you like about Sasha Dunbrook’s performance?

She didn't add any to the book. The book wasn't interesting.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, I just felt the story dragged on and on.

Any additional comments?

The characters are weak. The story is stale. I regret any money I spent on the book.

Rowan Summerwaite is no ordinary woman. Physical vessel to the Celtic goddess Brigid and raised by the leader of the Vampire Nation, she's a supercharged hunter with the power to slay any vampire who violates the age-old treaty. A recent string of murders has her at odds with Las Vegas's new Scion, the arrogant and powerful Clive Stewart. The killings have the mark of Vampire all over them, and Rowan warns Clive to keep his people in line - or she'll mete out her own brand of justice.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to several of my friends. There many trademarks in this book I like. The story is well written in my opinion, there is attitude from the main characters, the book has mystery, sex, mythology and vampires. I have listened to the book several times and enjoyed it every time. This something I don't usually do.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Goddess with a Blade?

When Rowan calls The First during one of her conversations with Clive. In spite of her rocky relationship with The First, she continues to honor him even when she is not in his presence. The First is over joyed to hear from her as well, lets her know she is missed. Clive witnesses the respect Rowan has for the First and the admiration the First has for Rowan, he then realizes he will not be getting his way. Clive witness something probably no one has witnessed there is a real father daughter relationship there. Even is Rowan doesn't believe it so.

Which scene was your favorite?

Sex on the desk.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I am not sure.

Any additional comments?

This book has a way of making a really awful day better. I really enjoyed the book.

Envy's life was great. Great brother, great boyfriend, and the best job a girl could ask for... tending bar at the most popular clubs in the city. At least it was great until she got a call from one of her best friends about her boyfriend doing the vertical limbo on the dance floor at Moon Dance. Her decision to confront him begins a chain of events that will introduce her to a dangerous paranormal world hidden beneath the everyday humdrum.

Would you try another book from Amy Blankenship and R. K. Melton and/or K. B. Stanford?

I might try Amy Blankenship but I didn't like K.B. Standford and probably won't purchase if she is narrator.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Faith Hunter's New novel.

What didn’t you like about K. B. Stanford’s performance?

There was nothing interesting about her voice or the way she delivers the story. In short she is boring. I have had novels that are borning but the narrator made me continue to listen to because there were good to great. I didn't even want to continue after Cain and Tabithia were re-introduced into the novel.

What character would you cut from Moon Dance?

The novel is borning. I am sorry I lost interest in the novel altogether

Any additional comments?

I really hope the author's next novel is better.
