I have to admit my original opinion of this series may have been a bit harsh. I listened to book 1 again this week and was compelled to get book 2. To let you know how much I enjoyed it, I used a credit I was saving for a pre-order. There ya go. I enjoyed it and now that I've finished book 2 I am ready for the next installment in the series.

I don't think I have yelled at a character in a book so much in my life. I was so angry at Kalen and then cared for him and then yelled at him and then.... well you get the picture. I was physically tired by the end. I mean to tell you, whew. I thoroughly enjoyed and hated and couldn't turn off and...well you get the picture. J.D. this was by far the best one of the series. Can't wait to see who will be next in the line up. I was kinda hoping we'd see some wings before the end but that's ok they are coming. Thanks for the rush. Until next time.....

With two months left to find a husband and fulfill her grandmother’s ultimatum, Celia sets her sights on three eligible bachelors. Becoming betrothed to one of these wealthy, high-ranking men will surely prove her capable of getting married, so hopefully the wedding itself won’t be necessary for Celia to receive her inheritance. Step Two of her audacious plan is hiring the dark and dangerously compelling Bow Street runner Jackson Pinter to investigate the three men she’s chosen. With Lady Celia bedeviling Jackson’s days and nights, the last thing he wants is to help her find a husband.

The story can be lacking but if the narrator is good they can salvage it. Fortunately, this one had the best of both worlds; a captivating storyline and a talented narrator. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't know if I want to risk the other titles with different narrators though, but this one is worth it.

This was a very enchanting story. Romance, heartbreak, tragedy, redemption, recompense, resurrection. It has it all. A well written and very well narrated audio. I will definitely look for more titles by this author and more works from this narrator.

Very good!

Would you ever listen to anything by Sharon Shinn again?

yes

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

What made the experience of listening to Lover Reborn the most enjoyable?

Jim and the expectation of what comes next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

oh my, as soon as I met V he was mine, and if he weren't mentioned I would be upset. That said, in this book as I get to know Xcore a little and start to understand him, I like him more. He's is letting go of who he thought he was and learning who is really is. I like that.

What about Jim Frangione???s performance did you like?

All of it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The in between, where will it find you.

Any additional comments?

If you could sum up Acheron in three words, what would they be?

Tortured, kindhearted, hunk!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Acheron?

wow, when he realized who he really was. Not that he had the powers of a god, but that he was valuable in spite of the god powers. Also when he was playing the video game with the kid and the other immortals.

What about Holter Graham???s performance did you like?

EXCELLENT! I wish all of her books in this series were narrated by him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did.

Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

What did you like best about A Little Night Magic? What did you like least?

Ok, I understand suspense, but this is ridiculous. What is with this girl and seeing the obvious. Why does it take her so long to see the truth. First she completely trusts this woman she only met a day ago rather that people she's know all of her life. Stupid. Amanda Ronconi saved the story. There were funny places and sad places but most of the places I was saying,

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The story was good but the dumb main character made me angry.

Do you think A Little Night Magic needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Only if Olivia grows a brain.
