The Emperor unleashed hell and annihilated an army, jeopardizing the future of mankind - but Circe struck back. The epic clash between them devastates the Arcana world and nearly kills Evie, separating her from her allies. With Aric missing and no sign that Jack and Selena escaped Richter's reach, Evie turns more and more to the darkness lurking inside her. Two Arcana emerge as game changers: one who could be her salvation, the other her worst nightmare.

I have loved this series since the first book despite it is outside of the adult paranormal books I usually purchase. Kresley Cole did a fantastic job breathing a little more life back into the dead post apocalyptic world she created in Poison Princess. If you have listened to the other 3 books in the series, you know they end in cliffhangers; this one is no different, in fact if anything the cliffhangers leave you wishing for book 5 as soon as you finish 4..... Hopefully, the next book becomes available very soon!

Emma Galvin, as always, did a fantastic job giving a unique voice to each of the characters. Cole and Galvin definitely bring the stories they tell to life and help you feel like you've been transported into a different world while listening!

I cannot say this enough, if you are looking for a young adult romance series set in a post apocalyptic world, or something outside the box of adult paranormal romances, BUY THIS SERIES!!! Definitely worth each credit!

I didn't think I was going to like this series but I must say it is one my very favorite series I've listened to in a VERY long time. I've listened to the entire series many times and each time I find that I missed one detail or another that adds even more intrigue to the books.. Hunter does a fantastic job bringing her characters to life and doesn't give you time to really judge someone as good or "evil"..... Those who had always been feared may not be the ones to be feared, they may be the ones that not only become allies but also the ones who aide in the salvation of the Scribes, their mates, humans and peace on Earth.

Worth a credit? YES, IT'S A MUST READ! Don't miss out, it's a very, very interesting series that is filled with just about every genre. Definitely glad I didn't skip this series, I guarantee you will not be able to wait to listen to the next book, each one leaves you breathless and full of anticipation for more of the story!

When you've lost everything you love, how do you fight the darkness? Ava left Istanbul with a new identity, new name, and new magic she could barely control. Laid low by Malachi's sacrifice, she searches for help from the fabled Irina. But will the secretive women of the Irin race welcome or shun her? Ava's origins are still a mystery, and her powers are darker than any they've encountered before. The Irin world hangs in the balance.

Jason Thorn...my brother's childhood friend. Oh, how stupidly in love with that boy I was. He was the first boy who made me blush, my first official crush. Sounds beautiful so far, right? That excitement that bubbles up inside you, those famous butterflies you feel for the very first time - he was the reason for them all. But you get to live in that fairy tale world only until they crush your hopes and dreams and then stomp on your heart for good measure. And boy did he crush my little heart into pieces.

I actually liked this book although it's not my normal genre of books. I absolutely love York's narration, 5he female lead was good as well. Definitely worth a credit, the book will make you laugh, make your toes curl wishing it was you, feel bad for certain characters for different reasons, has several plots that you don't realize were even there until later and has some steamy parts mid/late in the book.

I purchased this book even though it's far from my normal preference of paranormal romance hoping to find something different but good and this book definitely did that. I have to say that if the narrator was someone else, I highly doubt it'd be 1/2 as good, Teri Linden did an amazing job! The overall storyline is GREAT and has so many dynamics it's hard to explain everything it holds. The book is definitely NOT for YA's or those who don't like a lot of adult content (not just heated bedroom scenes but overall mature content that contains some graphic family violence), it is for those who enjoy an involved plot, somewhat of a thriller, steamy bedroom talk and a lot more!!!!!

Definitely worth the $/credit! I loved Sweet as Sin and hope to see a sequel!

Not my normal genre, but by far one of the best series EVER! Great book, well worth the credits!!! The books must be read in order, even the novella!

To be honest I've listened to this series many times, it's by far one of the best Zombie apocalypse trilogies. The narration is perfect, the story keeps you entertained (even if you know the story nearly by heart)! The series has a little bit of something for everyone, mystery, thrills, romance, lost/found/rediscovered love, drama, the value of family and so much more......

"If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are everything." There's no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never dreamt I'd feel. But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.

Pretty Instincts pulls you through every human emotion possible. At times I was laughing out loud and others nearly sobbing. I'm not usually a fan of this type of book but honestly I do believe it is probably the best book I've EVER listened to. It isn't for the young adult reader, but unlike a lot of "erotic romance" books, Stevens doesn't make sex the main story, she builds it into the story but the point is not sex but love.

Worth the credit??? Absolutely, I can't really find anything I disliked about the book. Great story, GREAT PLOT, EXCELLENT narration.

THIS IS A MUST LISTEN!

Cassie Forrest could almost believe life at Kingdom Come Farm is perfect, with Adrian and her friends at her side and spring on the way. The spring thaw also means millions of defrosting zombies, however, and if the past year has taught her anything, it's that life in this new world is highly imperfect. When Safe Zones throughout the country begin to disappear and the zombies at the fences grow in number, Cassie clings to the hope that if she has the people she loves most, it will be all right.

I listened to both books and the novella non stop, I couldn't put it away..... There is times when it seems like it's going to be boring and all doom and gloom but Fleming's throws another twist into it and bam a new direction is established. I can tell you that this book brought times of tears running down my face from the intensity of the characters emotions, but it also had me laughing out loud or smiling too.....

Again, GREAT STORY + EXCELLENT NARRATION= FABULOUS LISTEN!!! Well worth the credit!!

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.
