Things that bite are pretty common in the land down under. A predator could be lurking behind every tree, inside every shadow. It is, however, a horrible new menace that threatens the serenity of the vast, sunburnt country: washed inland on a wave of toxic waste, mixed with great white sharks and sleazy topless waitresses. The outback is dry and boring at the best of times...but now, it really bites!

Confessions of a Transylvanian is a one-of-a-kind, backstage look at the greatest cult movie phenomenon of all time - the live Rocky Horror Picture Show - told by those who lived it. The highest-rated Rocky Horror book on the market, Confessions is a moving snapshot of life in a Rocky Horror cast that captures the grit, language and teenage angst of a group of fishnet-clad performers as they explore a world where the only rule was: Don't dream it. Be it.

In Mammina's first fairy tale novel, the theories of justice and corruption are tested. This tale is about a ghostly knight named Spirit Warrior who dared to defend his own people against an assortment of villains, including that of an evil corrupt king and a vengeful sorcerer. In a quest to secure justice and peace, Spirit Warrior selflessly challenges all obstacles at once--giving rise to this classic saga.

Gabriel is a simple sailor, doing the bidding of his Captain and King, when he is swept up in a storm that changes his life in ways that he could never have anticipated. Carlotta yearns for her lost home, and is searching for her lost husband, but both remain elusive in a world that has been turned upside-down by forces far outside of her control. When the storm that is Governor Bernardo de Gálvez breaks over them both, neither will ever be the same - and nor will their world.

People are dying in the Northwest area of the United States and Canada from a terrible plague. The small towns bordering the forests have been hit the hardest, and no matter how closely the citizens follow the quarantine protocols, somehow the illness keeps spreading. It makes no sense, the towns are remote and isolated and the only thing they have in common are the vast, interconnected forests. It is almost as if it is being spread by an animal, but that theory doesn’t hold water. They know that the virus can only be spread by animals similar to humans…like a primate.

A third eye is like an invisible eye only you know about it. When this is opened, you suddenly have the ability to see and predict things that are not seen in the physical realm. One thing you need to know about the third eye is that we naturally have it, which means that we all have the potential to acquire this power but we just haven’t figured out know how to use it.

I thought I had an idea about what third eye is about. This audible tells more about it and how it works. It also provides exercises on how to use it. It was an eye opener- pun intended!

From my experience, non-fiction is hard to listen too. However, Leigh Adams does a great job of reading and kept me engaged.
