Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker...and the woman rogue vampires fear most. Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City.

What made the experience of listening to Cold Reign the most enjoyable?

Action from start to finish. The comedy between was awesomely placed & done.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Reign?

When Bruzer told Jane that he loved her & when Jane told Leo that she'd kick his ass :)

What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love her voice. She brings Jane to life.I am so glad that Faith has kept her as narrator & hasn't switched her out like they did wiith Anita Blake stories; there by messen them up.

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

Yes, tghat is exactly what I did :)

Any additional comments?

Cassandra Chamberlain has always stood out. It's hard not to at 6'1" and 165 pounds, with jet black hair and sapphire blue eyes. And if that isn't enough, she is also brilliant, graduating from Harvard at 15, teaching at MIT at 19, and up for the prestigious Magellan Award at 25. She's never really fit in. Not with her peers, not with her contemporaries, only with her family. But everything changes when the Earth is attacked, and Cassandra and her niece, Victoria, are the only survivors. Suddenly the smartest woman on the planet has to relearn everything.

Where does Cassandra's Challenge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Amongst my fav with a woping 10!

What did you like best about this story?

The intrigue & the action. The characters & their quirks. Plus it's funny :)

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I don't think I have but because it has them it works!
I don't think that the voices would have worked otherwise with just one narrator.

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

One of the most awesone, exciting and amusing adventures ever to come across the screen!

Any additional comments?

Please hurry up with book 2 and make sure you have the same guys doing the narrations.

Assignments are handed out at the end of every Conclave, and Lissa has been given the assignment to act as Liaison for the ASD (Alliance Security Detail) - the founder and 20 charter members of the Reth Alliance have made that decision. As Lissa says, "you don't show up for the meeting, you get the assignment." She doesn't realize, at first, that the founder intends her position to be hands-on.

Super-Delicious, Hilariously AWESOME!!!!!

What did you like best about this story?

That King Rego's voice is better than before.
Thanks for considering my suggestion.
If it isn't too much trouble for the last on in this series can you
lower his voice 1-2 more octaves?
That will make him as manly sounding as his actions.

Have you listened to any of Traci Odom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I think Traci Odom should continue next with
The Saa Thalarr Series, High Demon Series & The God Wars Series.
I love all her works. I understand how much of a strain it must be to keep
up with so many character voices. that is why it is important for her fans
to tell her when there is a need for a little improvement.
I think she's great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really don't have a special moment. It is all special to me.
I am just glad that Lissa is becoming more of a Queen & less of a pansy.
I mean, she lets the ASD push her around.
She deserves more respect than that.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for book 10 in this series.
Also, when are you going to put the rest in audible, namely:
Blood Destiny Prequel The Saa Thalarr Series (Connie Suttle) Books In Series 2
Blood Destiny Sequel 1 High Demon Series (Connie Suttle) Books In Series 6
Blood Destiny Sequel 2 God Wars Series (Connie Suttle) Books In Series 5
Blood Destiny Sequel 3 The R-D Series (Connie Suttle) Books In Series 3
Blood Destiny - First Ordinance Book 5 - WhiteWing
Blood Destiny - Latter Day Demons Book 3 - A Demon's Due
already have them all in Kindle & can't wait to here them in audible.
By the way, I think Shiromi Arserio should do The R-D Series

Death has come to Le-Ath Veronis. A would-be assassin, aiming at Lissa, kills someone close to her instead. A price has been placed on Lissa's head by Black Mist, an assassin's guild who have been paid by a reassembled Solar Red. Throw in a spin-off religion, betrayal, a misguided kidnapping and the Five-Year Conclave for the Reth Alliance, and you have the seeds of war.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Are you kidding me!!!!!!!!!
I have been telling evryone I know about all of Connie Suttle's books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood War?

When Lissa scared the commander of red hand. I could imagine him pissing himself when he thought he had another girl to torcher.

Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favorite?

My faves are - Lissa, Gaven, Roff and all the others but I have only one complaint.
The only complaint I have is the voice of Rego, first vampire king of Harade. He sounds Like a whiny girl. His voice doesn't match his personnality. Please fix it for the next 2 books, thanks.

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

The Seeds Of War Have arrived for Le-Ath Veronis!
Lissa has to suffer again as if she hassn't suffered enough now little Toff is kidnapped, a price is on her head and betrail is in the air. Another day another betrail.

Any additional comments?

Suttle's Blood Wars in audible is awesome!!!!!!!!
Again, the only complaint I have is the voice of Rego first vampire king of Harade. He sounds Like a whiny girl. His voice doesn't match his personnality. Please fix it for the next 2 books, thanks.

Minsheng and Yasuko are wary of strangers, especially those who have fangs. Kidnapped from their home country, the two try desperately to find their place in their new lives. Minsheng is angry and bitter over the ordeal he has suffered through. Yasuko is still so naive. Christian finally meets his mates in Pride Pack Valley, but the two may be more than what he's bargained for. They reluctantly agree to come home with him. Christian has his hands full when he takes them to his club, The Manacle.

Neither Tony nor the vampires are aware of the other's efforts to search out these rogues, who may number in the hundreds at the very least. Tony holds information the vampires don't - he knows that Xenides, Saxom's eldest vampire child, has allied with terrorists.
