Wow, this was a great book. I was sucked in right away and my interest was held throughout. The story is really well done. It is interesting and has excellent world/character building. The narration is also extremely well done. All in all, this is a really well done book and a series I will most definitely follow.

Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as Cami navigates the Realms and builds a better life for her family. But an intrusion from her old life threatens everything she has gained and imperils the entire virtual world. Time to play the game.

This is the 2nd book in the series and I thought it does a good job of continuing the tale. As with the first book, the game mechanics (and stats) are pretty light. The premise is also very different from your normal LitRPG story. To me, this is a good thing. All in all, it is a pretty solid entry into the LitRPG genre and one I'd be cool with my 10 year old listening to.

There are incidents and emergencies in the world that defy logical explanation, events that could be defined as supernatural, extraterrestrial, or simply otherworldly. Standard laws do not allow for such instances, nor are most officials or authorities trained to handle them. In recognition of these facts, one organization has been created that can. Assembled by a loose international coalition, their mission is to deal with these situations using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary.

This was a great, and weird, story of a group of unlikely allies hunting a supernatural killer. Part murder mystery, part x-files (or something similar). The characters are very interesting and I thought the narration was well done, too. All in all, I really enjoyed this and would love to find more in this OCLT universe.

The junkie. The goth girl. The redneck. The nerd. The gangsta. The gay kid. The jock. The twins who can't even tell themselves apart. A loveable cast of walking clichés, out for a week in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. What could possibly happen? Murder, that's what! Who left that dead girl skewered on the porch, anyway? All are suspect, as the slayings become more and more ridiculous. Hell of a way to spend a vacation. Will they find out who the killer is in time to stop this madness, or will this mean the end for all?

This was definitely an homage to 80's horror. I loved every minute of it! The narration is well done and the deliberately campy and goofy horror story is so well done. If you are a fan of those types of movies/stories, you should check this one out.

This small anthology is a collection of short stories and drabbles that feature Death and desolation in varying degrees. Whether it is a lonely man travelling through a dead England, a post nuclear journey home, a man in chains, the apocalypse caused by an innocuous plant, hope from the infected, or nocturnal visitations, they all offer the loneliness and isolation.

This was a great collection of short horror stories that all focus on death and desperation. They don't try to focus on gore and shock like some of these anthologies do. The narration is done is good. There is a little bit of background noise in places, but not so much that it bugged me enough to stop listening. All in all, this is a good short story collection.

Old gods die hard. Professional necromancer Lazarus Kerrigan knows all too well that the Big Easy is anything but. Crime is up, business is down, and someone--or something--crushed an innocent girl to death on his doorstep. After the search for the murderer brings the police to his front door, Laz must prove his innocence by hauling in the real killer with help from the dead. When the sun sets in New Orleans, more than monsters go bump in the night... And what Laz awakens in his quest for answers might just get him--and everyone else in town--killed.

Great alternative to the long defunct Dresden Files series. I would liken this to a mix of Dresden and Vesic (another great series you should check out). Anyway, this book has great dialog, tons of action, a well built magic system/world and a solid narrator. All in all, this series is now high on my must listen list.

This was a fantastic spy/thriller. I very much enjoyed the characters and story created by the author. I actually started this series with book 2, and came back for this one. I'm glad I did. The narration is very well done. I'm excited to go to book 3 (because book 2 was so good too).
