"Hello, Praea." There's only one being on Earth who calls Sloan Jordan by that name - her biological mother, a demon named Kasyade. So why did she answer Sloan’s best friend’s phone? When Sloan reaches Adrianne Marx’s apartment to investigate, she finds evidence of abduction. The reason? Ransom. The price? Sloan’s unborn daughter, the most powerful angel in all of history. But hell can’t rival the fury of an angry mother protecting her child, and until the baby is born, her incredible power is Sloan’s to wield.

This was a great series, it seems that it moving into Nathan's story now and I am glad for that. This book was a good ending to the series. I think, since I have not started the Nathan's book yet. I will very soon.

I can totally recommend this series to paranormal fans. I really enjoyed it.

The narration was amazing! I love Brittany Pressley! She is an awesome narrator. The men sound like men and everyone gets their own distinct voice. She is amazing!

Sloan Jordan's days are numbered. She has 139 to be exact. In that time, there's a lot to do - a missing friend to find, a wedding to plan, and her own murder plot to overthrow. When a lead takes the crew back to Chicago, the truth they uncover is more shocking than they ever imagined - to fight the enemies of the present, they must first face the demons from the past.

Love this series. Its fun, has great characters and character development. Angels and Demons are on the rise!

Again I don't want to give to much away but I do recommend this series, especially for paranormal fans.

The narration is absolutely amazing and I love it! It makes these stories even better with such a great narrator. Brittany Pressley does a fantastic job on all the male voices and gives everyone their own distinct voice. She has an amazing reading voice as well. Love her narrations!

All the missing victims of North Carolina's deadliest serial killer have been found, all except Rachel Smith. When the FBI produces a photo proving Rachel is alive and well in Texas, one case is closed but another one is opened. Either this is a case of mistaken identity, or there are more people than just Sloan Jordan and Warren Parish who seem to walk the earth without a soul.

This wasn't as good as the first book IMO, but it was still good. I liked it. I like the continued discovery of Sloan's abilities. We find out who her mother is. And again some great characters, as well as a couple sad moments.

The story flowed very nicely and is well written. This book is also written in the first person but is delightfully not full of random blah blah blah thoughts YAY. The chemistry between Sloan and Warren is realistic and believable.

I do recommend this series and especially this narrator.

As far as the narration it is fantastic! Love Brittnay Pressley! She has such an amazing voice, she reads with emotion and the men sound like men. She reads with emotion as called for. She is one of my favorite narrators!

Blessed or cursed with a connection to the souls of others, Sloan Jordan can see the best in people...and the worst. With nothing more than a glance at a photograph, she can judge the living from the dead and the good souls from the evil ones. For 27 years she's kept her ability a secret, but 11 young women have been murdered in the mountains of North Carolina, and Sloan may be the only hope of finding their killer.

What a surprise this book was. I really only got it because Brittany Pressley was narrating it and the description sounded okay. Well, it was actually a very good book and very entertaining. I enjoyed every bit of it. What a treat!

The story line and plot were very interesting. The characters are great. I really like Nathan and Warren a lot as well as Sloan. Even though this book is written in the first person it's not full of filler random internal thoughts. That is treat too. There is lots of great dialogue between all the characters and its not just Sloan's random thoughts. I do like that they all talk to each other and don't keep a bunch of secrets. The story is very well written, flows nicely and is easy to follow along.

There is sex but it not at all descriptive and I am okay with that. Sex not taking over a story is a bonus, as long as the chemistry, attraction and knowledge that the sex is happening is good with me.

I do recommend this book and the series so far.

As for the narration, it is amazing, I am a huge fan of Brittany Pressley she does such a great job on all the voices especially the male voices and everyone gets their own distinct voice. She has great reading voice and reads with emotion. Love her narrations!

This was a very good legal thriller.I really liked it a lot and I enjoyed a lot of the characters especially Wilma's 14 year old daughter who hired McMurtrey to defend her mother.

There were a lot of plot twists and turns, murders and just a really well written story that kept me guessing all the way to the end. Fantastic story telling.

I totally recommend this book!

As for the narration, Eric Dove is amazing. Love him. He does such a great job on the female voices and has a great reading voice. Awesome narrator!!!!!!!

Wow I don't know where to begin with this review. Not much to tell really. This book started out really boring, picked up a little bit in the middle then lost its mojo again towards the end. Then the ending was anti-climactic, pathetic and disappointing. Just sayin....

The Wife Between Us was 10x better!

As for the narration, Julia Whelan aka Sophie Eastlake was fantastic and I loved her, she did Jess's parts and the men sound like men she reads with emotion and has a great reading voice! 5 great stars for this narration.

Barrie Kieinik did Lydia's parts and were so dull and robotic, not to mention her male voices sounded like a girl. 1 Star for this narration.

Wow this was a great book! I really liked it a lot. I really liked Zoe and her back story of how she became a Forensic Psychologist. It was great, she was 14 years old and because of some murders in her small town she started reading all kinds of books on serial killers and psychological profiling, she figured out who the killer was. So that is how she gets started in her line of work at the FBI.

The story line and plot is great. Lots of twists and turns and some great dialogue. I really good psychological mystery thriller. The story was written very well and was easy to follow along and not get lost or confused. Things are happening and progressing all the time.

I totally recommend this book,

As for the narration, it was great! I love Brittany Pressley so much! She has such a great reading voice and does all the characters voices so well. The men sound like men and everyone gets their own voice so you know who is speaking at all times! Love her narrations!

So this story was a bit odd. It started out good and was engaging, However, it started getting a bit crazy and then the ending was eye rolling, to say the least.

This was my first Lisa Gardner book. Not sure if I will read her again, since the ending of this book was just kind of ridiculous.

I don't want to leave any spoilers here but, Really???!!!???!!!? How was this mystery development even thought to be good?

As for the narration that is what kept me going 100% It was fantastic! Brittnay Pressley is an absolute amazing narrator! I love listening to her. The men sound like men, everyone gets their own distinct voice and and she has a great reading voice!

Bottom line the narration is the best part of this book!
