Charles Cornick is the son of the leader of the North American werewolves - and his father's enforcer. Anna Latham, a rare Omega wolf with a calming presence, is his mate. They go where they are needed, handling problems in werewolf packs throughout the country. But this time the danger is closer to home, as an enemy armed with witchcraft threatens Charles and Anna's own pack.

What did you love best about Burn Bright?

This lady is a master storyteller. I didn't want to hear a ten hour book in one sitting...I had no choice.

What did you like best about this story?

The character are real. Even when I hate what's happening, I understand why.

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The man's timing is flawless. His vocals make it easy not to confuse the different characters.

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

As I said above, I had no intention of hearing it all in one sitting but I did. I both laughed and cried. Great story

Any additional comments?

Not to give anything away, but the villain was not only someone I never expected but one of my favorite characters. Their story ended as it had to, but I was surprised at the sense of loss I felt, still feel.
That's part of what makes this a really great story.

Quite naturally, Bubba's got another problem. The woman he likes is missing. Folks around Pegramville don't have an inkling whether Bubba done did anything this time. In fact, Bubba doesn't know what to think, but he is plumb dedicated on finding Willodean Gray, through fair means or foul. It will take a trip to the big city of Dallas, a run-in with an unstable superhero called The Purple Singapore Sling, a kidnapping by a Dallas crime lord, and a headlong hunt for a devious individual who snatched the fair sheriff's deputy to figure out which end is up.

Would you listen to Bubba and the Missing Woman again? Why?

Yes, I can't wait until Audible has another Bubba adventure available.

What did you like best about this story?

C.L. Bevill has small town Texas nailed! Her descriptions of the people and places are wonderful. The tales are flush with Texas humor. The stories are wonder action mysteries. I was on the edge of my seat worried about 'The Missing Woman' to the last chapter.

Have you listened to any of Mike Alger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first exposure to Mr. Alger's Narration, but I can't imagine anyone else telling Bubba's stories. I would be curious to see what else he has done.

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

So many. The man with the Hounds telling Bubba he wouldn't take his money. The little girl realizing Bubba loves her aunt. I can't say Bubba doesn't have a mean bone in his body, but he has a lot more kind one. He goes out of his way to be respectful to pretty much anyone.

Any additional comments?

When ever possible my wife and I prefer Audio books for stories we are both interested in. Cuts down on fights over who reads a book first and exchanges like "Have you got to the part...DON'T TELL ME DON'T TELL ME DONT TELL ME!"
I hope the rest of Bubba's adventures make it in to Audio format...SOON!

If you could sum up The Dragon Finds Forever in three words, what would they be?

Best Nocturne Yet

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dragon Finds Forever?

It was all good. I enjoyed Van's interactions with his Dog, and the reason he picked him.

What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

Harrison knows the characters and setting. He spins a wonderful word image, makes we wish Nocturne Falls was someplace I could visit.

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

I didn't want to listen to the book in one setting, but I did. I kept looking at the clock - cringing - and saying after this next chapter. Then I would grumble, "I can't stop there!"

Any additional comments?

I have loved this series from the first. Kristen weaves a wonderful story. The Jane Frost books are also fantastic. I always finish the books wondering when the next will be available.

London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....
