Jim Dale is absolutely amazing. His voice makes you feel like you are a part of the story. You can here the differences in character and that is saying something for a guy doing a female voice. I will listen to any series with this guys voice in it!!!!

This book was too short in my opinion. A lot that was covered in the book is a lot of things that we "sweat" in life when it comes to the relationship we hold. If you are in a relationship and feel like you are always arguing over the small things, this is the perfect book for you. It does help.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

I couldn't have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I'm not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine - multimillionaire. But who's counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met. And that's why I'm eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge...bank account. Everything's coming up aces. Until the next day, when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash - a lot complicated.)

This story definitely had a few spicy bits. however, i think it had one of the sweetest story lines i have ever read. The dorky jokes and how they always tried to discover new things together was absolutely perfect.

Sebastian York has one of the sexiest voices i have ever heard. i will be looking for more books that he narrates. he has the voice where you can't just listen once

But Nick's hidden powers are coveted by more than just his father. Imprisoned by Hades, Nick battles every form of torture imaginable as the god schemes to break him. Only one thing keeps him sane - one woman who gives him the strength to fight the relentless darkness.

I have to say this was my favorite out of the Eternal Guardians series. For all the books they had me so curious what was it about Nick that made you want to know who he was and why he wasnt in Arogolea even though i felt like he belonged so much. I was so excited that in this book i finally found out!!

Betrayed definitely took the story to another level. Not only does it start to show Zoey's teenage stupidity but it talks about real feelings that a teenage girl might go through even if shes not a vampire. it does have many shocking points and at one point i was even in tears. i will still continue with this series

So i am a fan of the old school type of vampire that burns in the sun and doesnt have all kinds of special owers and stuff.... However,Cast wrote this book with pure genious. This makes a whole new way to experience the life of vampires. it involves many pieces for their world and how they are. It does have a total teen age drama appeal to it but it just makes this story all the better

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing - not even a smear of blood - to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

For a person that really doesnt like fantasy books or wont even go near a section that has anything to do with vampires, this was a great book to chose to start venturing out. I love that everytime i thought i knew exactly what was going to happen to one of the characters, Cassandra Clare hit us with something that we wouldnt expect. She is great at keeping up the suspense.

These books have just gotten better. I was completely enamored by her first book in the Eternal Guardians series but after listening to the story of Zander, i know im going to finish every single book in this series. This book has moments of deception where you would want to slap a person for being so stupid. And the love scenes between the charcters is hot, hot, and hotter. She gives you an amazing part of each of the characters and opens them up wide enough to relate to them or hate to be in there shoes. Elisabeth Naughton is truly amazing.

Theron - Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He's the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld. From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn't exist in real life - silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her. She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron's duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn't strong enough to resist....

Elisabeth Naughton is one of my favorite authors when it comes to greek mythology love stories. i feel like she was not dont justice on how great this book was because the narrator made the characters sound as if they were 20 years older than they were. Thuron voice also sounded creepy instead of sultry and sexy.
