Over 200 years ago, a covert expedition shadowing Lewis and Clark disappeared into the wilderness of central Idaho. Now, seven anthropology students and their professor vanish in the same area. The key to finding them lies in an ancient secret, one involving alchemy, gold, and immortality...a secret that men throughout history have sought to unveil. Michael Rempart is a brilliant archeologist whose colorful and controversial career has earned him admiring fans and implacable foes, but he is plagued by a troubling sense of the supernatural and a mysterious spiritual intuitiveness.

East St. Louis deputy Patrick O’Shea is tired of living in the line of fire. So when he gets a chance to transfer to his wife’s small hometown, he doesn’t hesitate to load up the moving van. But his family’s bags are barely unpacked before their newfound peace and quiet shatters in a surge of demonic voices. The deputy has faced his fair share of evil, but nothing quite like this. Normally the first into the fray, he worries they’ve unearthed a force not even his special training and inner-city experience can combat.

The story is very well written. It held my attention from beginning to end. Jay Bower does not disappoint with his tale of horror

I enjoyed these more than I thought I would. The author takes you into the world of BDSM in a style I completely enjoyed. The main characters, Emily and Paul, are amazing together. Emily has loved Paul for years and resorts to lies and deception to finally get him. Paul takes Emily into his lifestyle slowly and gently.

The author also explains this lifestyle slowly and gently. I'm not saying the story isn't hot because it is very hot. This audible has something for anyone, the storyline is really good and sex scenes hot as hell.

The narrator is spot on with character voices and emotion.

Convinced they are the victims of a sick, practical joke, Heidi and her three friends are resigned to spending the night at The Scarry Inn, even though the atmosphere is anything but welcoming. Surely the owners, Dick and Thelma Scarry, are simply trying to drum up business for their new motel by terrifying the guests. But when Kara is found brutally murdered, they realize the danger is real, and they must find their way to safety before the secrets of the inn claim another victim.

The story is pretty good, though I came close to stopping the audible more than once. I have never listened to so many characters, which was all of them, whine so much.

I enjoyed the voice of the narrator, except for the character voices for which there was to much whining.

Charlie Nelson is just walking down the street, minding his own business, when he’s suddenly killed in a brutal drive-by shooting…or is he? When he finally forces his eyes open again, he’s lying in a hospital bed, and he can tell right away that something is very, very wrong. But nothing can prepare him for the shock of looking in a mirror, and seeing a gorgeous teenage girl staring back at him! It can’t be true, it just can’t! He’s a strong, virile man! He’s not a woman, doesn’t want to be a woman, doesn’t know the first thing about being a woman! Like it or not, though, he’s about to find out!

The heat is on when a curse Viking clashes with the woman of his dreams. Over a thousand years ago, a witch hexed four charming Viking brothers, each with one of the four elements. They live with these curses today, doomed to suffer for their past crimes forever. Mikkel just might be too hot to handle.
