Would you consider the audio edition of The Fur Trade Gamble to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

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

This was my first performance by Bill Nevitt. He did an outstanding job with such deep and rich material. This material could have been boring or the listener could easily get lost in the details, but this did not happen to me and I believe that was largely due to Mr. Nevitt's narrating style.

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

Not emotionally. But I learned a lot about a subject I previously knew nothing about. It was very obvious that this book was a result of unending research.

Any additional comments?

What did you love best about The Watchman?

I loved the powers that Noah had. And I loved the way that he used them.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot kept me on my toes and sometimes at the edge of my seat. There were several twists that I did not see coming.

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

Theo was able to bring so many of the images to life. I think Theo made the perfect Noah and made the character tangible.

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

Not moved as much as had me on the edge of my seat, there is a break in scene and I enjoyed that!

Someone once told me that happiness is fleeting. I can see now that he was right. I'm trapped in a black hole of darkness I can't seem to crawl out of. My twin and my lover want each other dead and I'm pregnant with a baby I don't know how to protect. Ryland says he will do anything to get me back, but how do you trust the man who almost killed you? When every option before you comes at a cost, how do you choose the right path? People say that history has a way of repeating itself.

She was just an ordinary mortal...until death catapulted her into a seductive world she never imagined. "You're dead" is so not what Allie Watson wants to hear. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like the dark, angelically handsome man who ferried her to this strange, hidden land. The last thing she remembers is stepping off a curb in front of a cross-town bus. Now she's surrounded by gorgeous fallen angels with an unfortunate taste for blood---and they really don't want her around. Not exactly how she pictured heaven.

I remember everything, only now I wish I didn't. When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself. But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed. Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know. I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.
