Kids will like this one. It was very descriptive so they should have no trouble imagining what's happening. The only issue I had with the narration was really a production problem (I believe). There is not a long enough pause at the end of a chapter before the next one starts. That may make it difficult for parents to select a stopping point. Good, clean fun that teaches teamwork and other life lessons.

This book started out somewhat slow. But it became more interesting as Penny and Jones's relationship developed. Each of them was dealing with insecurities based on past life experiences but prayer and trusting in God allowed them to move beyond that. At one point I didn't want to keep listening because I thought I knew what would happen to Penny. Ms. Williams surprised me. When the anticipated event did happen, I wasn't expecting it. The ending was nicely resolved. Laurel did a good job with the narration. I would recommend this to anyone especially those looking for a clean Christian romance. The audio version was a gift and the reviews is my free and unsolicited opinion.

This is my first foray into Michael and Justin's joint world. I like vampire and werewolf stories. This is the first one I've read in the series (it's book 2). While it seems to refers to previous incidents, it can still be read as a stand alone book. This continues Valerie's story as she works to bring justice to a dystopian world. There was a lot of violence and some swear words. The sexual references were mostly implied and not really descriptive. While I enjoyed the writing, and loved the narration, it seemed geared more for YA. That dud not detract from my enjoyment . Now I want to find out how Valerie got started in all of this.

I enjoyed this. This is my first Ellie Foreman mystery. While it was obvious there was previous "history" for Ellie, it didn't detract from the story which kept my attention. I enjoyed learning about the history of the characters and how the different pieces of the puzzle came together - especially such dissimilar parts as blood diamonds, the breakup of the Soviet Union, the search for family after long after the Holocaust and foster children. I'd like to read more about Ellie !

Ashley Klanac does a wonderful job of bringing Ysabella and Merlyn's story to life. The mistrust and misunderstandings these two experience in their tumultuous relationship lends tension to story, begging the reader to keep on reading (and listening) to see what happens next. Will they ever get past their trust issues long enough to realize they are meant to be together? I've listened to a number of audiobooks and must say Ashley is one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

This started off slowly for me but then I continued listening and became more involved in Maggie and Roe's story. The author took time to develop the characters and let me learn about them, their dreams and desires, more fully. The narration was very good with a well modulated voice, accents that seemed appropriate and voices for the characters that fit them. I'm glad Jesse has his own story and can't wait to listen to it. Thank you Pamela for allowing me to review this audiobook. Even though it was free, the opinions here are entirely my own.

When puberty brings on her first shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years - until finally learning to change back. She can change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two-year disappearance was because she'd been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats, and no alpha.

I really struggled to finish this. If it was intended for a younger audience, say pre-teen or younger high school, that would explain things. I found the writing on the juvenile side ("right" was used too often) and some of the actions and reactions didn't seem to fit. I realize it's fantasy but the author tried to put it into present times which, in my opinion, didn't work. I may try the next book on the series to see if Missy or the language grow up but not as an audiobook. I found the narrator's voice choices grating and sometimes whiney. I try to find something good about books so I'll say the author had a good idea and if indeed intended for young girls, it suceeded. The narrator had several female voices to handle so perhaps that's why the adult women didn't come across as well as the the girls.
