My name is Rowan Gant. I'm just an average guy...well, except for the fact that I'm a witch. That last part is the reason I'm the go-to guy for the local cops whenever a murder is a little beyond the pale, and they need a consultant with knowledge of the occult. I didn't actually want the job, but apparently the job wanted me.

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Roses to be better than the print version?

I haven't read books yet. Unfortunately audio does not have book 3 and 4 yet I can't wait so I will have to purchase books to read. Wish audible has all four books.

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

As with book one story line keeps you guessing throughout story. The most memorable part of story is when the escape starts.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I remember feeling sad and then happy for main characters

Any additional comments?

A great read won't be disappointed.

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

It is not often lately that I purchase an audio book that I finish in two days. I just couldn't stop listening. Kane keeps Kaitlynn wondering throughout the story what his true intentions are. Excellent end to a great story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kane was my favorite character, he is misconceived throughout the story and is more of a hero rather than a villian

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

No but I can wait to start book two in the series, now one of my favorite authors

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

Yes when Kane's true feeling were exposed.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended for paranormal lovers.

All the characters are great especially, Kelsey who is always one step ahead of the grown-ups

Now she's dead and Digger's back, with the daughter they conceived during that fateful honeymoon 16 years before. And the ghost hunters are stirring up ancient evils that were better left in peace, because the inn's basement is home to a circle of demons that have been waiting for Wayne to return.
