The complete set of three short stories that set up the Sick Robot universe in which robots infected with human cancer cells become mortal, fall in love, and decide they're more than a little tired of being second-class citizens into the city they helped build. Blending cyber and steampunk to create a retro-fusion landscape where pets are 4-D printed and people travel in tubes of compressed air, these stories will transport you into a world of surreal beauty.

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

So this was a amazing, amazing surprise in so many ways. Ok, maybe its not the most fantastic story in the world, but it kept me interesting. D. C. Lozar is giving us humor, sci fi and interesting storylines, but i must say its lts not the best in the world. Still a 4 out of 5 is a tremendous score. Alexander Doddy on the other side is P E R F E C T! Alexander Doddy is maybe some of the best readers of a book i heard. And i heard a LOT of books! Fan Tas Tic! I recommend this big way, and gave it full score becouse it deserve it. Get it now!

A shocking true crime story of sex, greed and cold-blooded murder! Veteran true crime author Gary C. King spins a gripping real-life tale of a woman caught in a deadly web of lust and violence...a riveting story of love gone horribly, tragically wrong. Kathryn Ann Martini graduated from Yale with a bright future in the banking business. Young, beautiful, and ambitious, she had everything going for her. Until she met Michael David Lissy, the sleazy proprietor of a scuba diving school.

I was provided this audio book at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

So i liked this a lot.There are some cases here i really enjoy, and there is always fun with true storys. I never read a Gary C. King book before, and i am happy with the new company. The only thing i am going to complain about is Dan Orders. I see someone said here he talks slow. I could not agree more. Dan Orders is the worst thing about this book, and i am sorry to say that. Thank for a good story Gary C. King, next time get a better reader.

When Toby Floren was eight years old, he discovered a monster living in the woods behind his house. A ghastly, frightening creature with claws, fangs, and a taste for human flesh. As he ran out of the forest, screaming, Toby felt that he'd been lucky to escape with his life. Years later, Toby finds comfort with the creature. It's his own special secret - something that nobody else in the world knows about. Somebody to talk to. Somebody to confide in.

For nearly three and a half centuries, the Boylan House has stood at the end of Meeting House Road. And something in that house has been killing boys for centuries. The town of Monson is a quaint and quiet New England town. Yet the house is terrifying and has been for as long as anyone can remember. Adults put the thing out of mind and ignore the fears of their children, admonishing them to stay away.

Ron Ripley is new name for me. I do love that, and I also love this books. Thom Bowers is a fantastic reader for the books too. So why not 5 stars? I guess I just didn't love the books, but I really really liked it. There is something special about the books, and I would recommend the books to horror fans.

Ahh, here we are again! Even with kidnapping and a stranger that loves money comes into the book it never get's "UNcozy". You almost know what you get before you listen to it, but that is a good thing, because in this book you will be surpliced over how cozy AND good it is. It travels around the line of being "unexiting", but never gets there! Michelle Babb is again the voice of the book, and WOW she does it again, and again and again! She reads this as a pro as she is always doing. I am a fan of her!

Dante Gallati was a man who ran his circus with an iron-fist and showed a soft side to a select few. He had his secrets that no one knew about and he could change his mind in a matter of seconds. One night, he changed the theme of his circus right in the middle of a tour. He promised that it would be the show that everyone would remember. After that, he told them good night and said that he would talk more about Cirque Macabre. That was the last time anyone saw him alive.

So i almost never talk about the narrator first, but i know Zachary Liebenstein from other books. I have to give him some "cudos", i love his voice and wow it fitted this book. CS Patra book The Show Must Go On: Cirque Macabre, Book 1 is a lot, but its not perfect, but i really really enjoy it, and Dante's story in this book get's a good start, but it feels a little like this is a "intro book". nothing really wrong with that, but it does not get full score.

Human trafficking is a really really interesting topic. Tom Dugan comes and tries to save the world again. There is something when you have a book in a series (That really are not a series), and the book number 1 and 2 are sooo good as the books from R.E. McDermott. Then i always feel a danger of reading book 3, but fair not: This book is as good as book 1 and 2! R.E. McDermott gives you another story filled with action! Todd Haberkorn needs some nice words too, he is amazing and fits this book,as he fitted the 2 first ones, i feel ready for book 4 when that comes!

In this addictive true-life whodunit, author Mardi Link details all the evidence to date in the case of the Robison family murders. She crafts her book around police and court documents and historical and present-day statements and interviews, in addition to exploring the impact of the case on the community of Good Hart and the stigma that surrounds the popular summer getaway. Adding to both the sense of tragic history and the suspense, Link laces her tale with fascinating bits of local and Indian lore.
