The signs are everywhere... disastrous world events. Evil rising up, unleashed upon the innocent. The prophecies were there... but no one listened. Until now. The time has come for those who can either usher in Doomsday... or prevent it. They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

What disappointed you about Immortal Rider?

The narrator, the story line. I have NEVER not listened to a book all the way, but not this one. It is the worst. The narrator is so dull, the plot is well - non-existent, while I like sex with my stories, this was very predictable.

What was most disappointing about Larissa Ione’s story?

No plot. Very predictable. The female lead is of course portrayed at weak and stupid

What didn’t you like about Hillary Huber’s performance?

Her narration was so dead pan, too sarcastic and did not the story any justice at all.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None what so ever

Any additional comments?

I have downloaded 2 of the books....I'll try the 2nd one and hope it's better after I listen to sometihng else. Give it a month or two.

Twenty-nine-year-old Vanessa Cole is a wild, stunningly beautiful heiress, the adopted only child of a highly regarded New York brain surgeon and his socialite wife. Twice married, Vanessa has been scandalously linked to any number of rich and famous men. But on the night of July 4, 1936, at her parents' country home in a remote Adirondack Mountain enclave known as The Reserve, two events coincide to permanently alter the course of Vanessa's callow life.

Well, I chose this book because of the narrator. I absolutely love Tom Stechschulte. Well, this was the most boring book i've ever listened to. I actually fast forwarded a bit to get through some of it. The ending was sort of interspersed with the middle and it was just very disjointed.

Wow, sure do wish i had started the series at the beginning. The story is great and had a lot of Pagan references which i truly enjoyed. Love the narrator - he realy made it interesting. I'm going to go back to the beginning of the series now...gotta get caught up.

Well, this is the first time I've ever given a bad rating. I'm 1/2 the way through this and it's very very painful. I'm not sure if it's the book or the narrator. Paint drying is about as exciting. I'm glad the book was free or I'd really be upset. I'm an audio book-a-holic so it's not that i don't like listening to them. I'm hoping the ending will be exciting.
