Slated for execution, shape-shifting assassin Dahlia Nite flees her world to hide in the human realm. As payment for the shelter they unknowingly provide, Dahlia dedicates herself to protecting humans from what truly lives in the shadows. Moving from town to town, she hunts the creatures that threaten an unsuspecting human race, burying the truth that could destroy them all. But the shadows are shifting. The lies are adding up. When Sentinel City is threatened by a series of bizarre brutal murders, light is shed on what should never be seen.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Flash Point! Great narrator; great story. I found myself routing for several characters along the way with this captivating tale of humans and lyricans. Can’t wait to listen to book 2.

Star college quarterback, Colt Walker, has it all: good looks, brains, one of the best arms in the game, not to mention potential for the Heisman and a first round NFL draft pick, until he puts it all on the line as he slides into the ugly world of sports gambling. College football referee, Frank Gastner, is a man stewing in his own misery, consumed by a drinking problem, heavy gambling debt, and heading into a nasty divorce.

Just as Beartown isnt' really a book about Hockey, The Fix isn't really a book about football! The Fix is more than a great story of a college football quarterback who is a contender for the Heisman. It is about addiction, gambling, and relationships. It is about addiction to drinking and gambling as well as relationships between lovers, friends, teammates, and mentors. From the first page right up until the end I rooted for; yelled at; cursed at and sometimes screamed out loud at the protagonist. I listened to The Fix and the narrator was as good as any I've listened to over the years. Never a dull moment and always full of energy when germane to the dialog.

If you haven't gotten your feet wet with an audio book. This is a good one to start with. Both because the narrator is very good but also because as a first time user with audiobooks you get The Fix for free (if this offer is still available). Looking forward to listening to more books by Michael Balkind and hearing more narrating done by Alex Perlman.
