I thought that going after those who'd destroyed my life would help me move on. At the very least, that it would ease the thirst for vengeance singing in my blood. I was wrong. With my guns at my side, I continue to search for ways to punish the one man who took everything from me. The man who killed my family. Death is far too good for him. I want to make him suffer, to take from him everything he loves. To that end, I need a code breaker, one who deals in magical glyphs.

What did you love best about Blood of a Phoenix?

I couldn't stop listening... was with Bear the entire time - what a way to end the book!

What did you like best about this story?

Non stop action. Nix is a tough, no holds, kick ass warrior that loves her son like a lioness.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Bear flies under the Shadow to grab the gun and shoots his grandfather.

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

Had me on the edge of my chair, tense and waiting to see what would happen next. I hate the grandfather.. great character build!

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Things have gone well enough until they receive the odd assignment to prevent a murder.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Death of Dulgath to be better than the print version?

This is one of my favorite series. All I can say is "more please..." I understand that Michael does not want to hurt these two characters by overwriting them... Between the story and Tim's narration I feel I need to stay a part of Royce's and Hadrian's lives...

Her search leads Jane to a young woman named Nell, a woman with a scarred past and a strange power, a woman who may hold the key to saving the missing vampire, if Jane can convince her to assist.

If you could sum up The Forgotten in three words, what would they be?

What a ride!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Forgotten?

The foursome trying to get on the structure during a storm... I kept picturing One Star to slip off the edge when she slipped off...

Which scene was your favorite?

Landry shooting blanks at Puller... busted!

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

When Diaz died in the battle...

Any additional comments?

Both Landry's and One Star's voice sounded too alike... if I missed the name, I had to rewind it to see which one he was performing... Great book... fast ride all along. Curious to know more about the brother in military prison...
