Wow. I really enjoyed this book a lot more than the two previous books and that usually is not the case in any trilogy. I loved all of the characters, and actually really enjoyed the side characters. The pacing of this book was great and it never had a dull moment. It was funny, entertaining, had romance, drama and action; everything you could want out of a book.

The best part of this audiobook was actually the narrator. If this narrator wasn't as good as he was, I don't know if I would've enjoyed the book as much. He is great at all the voices and I always knew who was speaking! His female voices were great too! The narrator really helped me love this story.

When Emma moves to Astoria, Oregon, she is given two rules: #1 - don’t cross to “their” side of the street. #2 - don’t mess with the elites, especially Lexen Darken, top elite and resident bad boy. While she finds this both weird and insulting, Emma has no actual intention of breaking these rules - until her guardians go missing. Now all bets are off. Only a single line separates her side of the street from the elites', and she's crossing it.

I actually really enjoyed this book. The world building was great and it got me out of a reading slump that I have been experiencing lately. I enjoyed most of the characters and the story built up nicely, but I could've had more added details to the end of the story. The narrator was good but some of her male character voices actually bothered me and I wish she had used a different voice for some of the main guy characters. I know this story will continue and it looks like we will be with different characters, so I hope that the plot is different. I will still be continuing on with this series!

I had a hard time with this book because it kept my interest and I really liked the world that was being built, but I also had a hard time with the main character. I wasn't a huge fan of the main character because she said the same things over and over again, which did get kind of annoying, but I like the idea of this book and the world the author created. I will probably continue on with this series and see how the second book plays out and if there are any improvements to see if I would like to keep continuing on.

Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and, strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister. Kacey's new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls - she's even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

I really enjoyed this book! I finished it really quickly, even cutting into my sleep time because I wanted to know what happened! For once I did not guess correctly or know the possible outcome of the story. Usually I can see where the plot is going, but right when I think I have it all figured out, the author adds in something else and I'm second guessing myself and have to think about it all over again. The narrators were a great part of this story and flowed together perfectly, at first I couldn't even tell that there were two narrators. This book was well worth the credit I used, and I hope to read/listen to more from this author in the future.

Where does The Call rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Call is an interesting concept and I would not mind listening to it again. It has it's own twists and turns and builds its own world to be like none other that I have read about before.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It is hard to pick a favorite character because you get to know so many of them that you even fall in love with the side characters. Each person has their own story and background and I could not help but love a bunch of the characters in this book.

Which scene was your favorite?

I do not have a favorite scene that would not give away the whole book but I do love the concept of how the characters in the book get Called and what they do in the Sidhe's world.

Any additional comments?

This book does have funny, violent, and terrifying moments that I found myself wanting to stay up to listen to it. It did keep me awake thinking about some of the scarier images that came to my mind with this book. I will still recommend it but it is part of a suspenseful and horror genre. I usually sway away from horror but the suspense and intrigue of the characters made me finish it and I have been in somewhat of a reading slump lately so this book got me back into reading, finally!

All in all, it is a great book that I will be recommending to my friends.

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

I've listened to one of her performances before and they're about the same. I always feel like there could be a little more improvement so that I can separate the characters a little more.

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

Harper, usually made me laugh with her antics and going over the situation she was now stuck in.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and a great set up for a series of books. I don't think I've read/listened to a book that is like this. I really like that Harper is the more "warrior" type of character instead of being the damsel in distress kind of girl. She knows she has to protect a certain person, but struggles with it and living her daily life. The end of the book was surprisingly great. I can't wait for the second one and will probably get it right away when it is released.

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

I have both the paperback and the audiobook versions of this book. I read the beginning of it in paperback and finished the majority of it with the audiobook version. I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, heartbreaking and real. I did cry a lot of sad and happy tears throughout this book. I think the narrator actually made me cry more because you could hear her voice getting chocked up like it said the characters were in the book and I would just start to cry along with them. It did have some great funny moments along the way too. Listening to this book in audio form made it so much better for me. The narrator is excellent.

Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father - polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. She'd been naive about a lot of things. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. And all the while there's Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

I was afraid to get this book because it looked like all the characters that I loved in book 1, weren't going to be around a whole lot, but I'm glad I finally gave in and bought it. I love being in Anna's point of view because you see her struggles and triumphs throughout the book and she seems more realistic to me. This book was all around a great book with romance, action, and character struggles. I can't wait to listen to the 3rd one!

She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.

This book was a fun and new way to look at Zombies. I really liked Natalie Gold's performance and would love to listen to any other books that she reads in the future. I love Zombie books, because they're just so scary and exciting that I'm surprised it took me this long to find this series. I liked the new twist that the Zombies had. Alice was a fun character and I really enjoyed her point of view. Some of the other characters were sassy and somewhat cocky but it was very entertaining.

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

Yes I would recommend this book to a friend because it is a fun action packed, good natured book.

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

I've never listened to any of Nick Chamian's performances before. I know a lot of people hate this performances for this book because we're so used to the other narrators. I almost didn't buy this in audiobook because all the reviews on his performance worried me. I read/listened to other books and stayed away from this book series for a while, and just recently bought it. I can see where Nick Chamian didn't quite do as well as the other narrators but he really tried. He tried to keep the same voices and tones that the narrator used before him. I don't think he did that bad of a job. Maybe it's because I took some time in-between books so I didn't notice it as badly as others.

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

These books always make me laugh. The comedy in them is always there to break any tense scene.

Any additional comments?

Love the series, and I can't wait to get the next one!
