Welcome to Rabbit Creek.... City girl Elizabeth Reynolds hopes to find peace and contentment in the small Appalachian town of Rabbit Creek. Okay, so the bucolic cottage she's rented turns out to be a dilapidated cabin without phone service, but the people she meets are wonderful. Friendly and down to earth, they welcome her with open arms. It's just like moving to Mayberry...if Andy and Aunt Bea were wolves. Only an outsider would call them werewolves.

When I quit torturing myself and returned the book.

Screechy coice and horrible pronunciation

Did The Alpha's Mate inspire you to do anything?

Yes... return it

City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I should have listened to the prior reviews. Good story, horrible narration - squeaky girl with no inflection in her voice (almost sounds like she's perpetually depressed). Whispery, poor phraseology and NO inflection. HATED this book because of it.
Guy who read was certainly boring but not like her.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line was good.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performances?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Could you see City of Fallen Angels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Please don't waste your money on anything ready by Ed Westwick or Molly C Quinn! Save yourself the money for a well narrated (or even fairly well narrated) book.

What did you like best about Undead and Unappreciated? What did you like least?

Now it seems like the books are getting shorter and shorter and no price cut.
The story line is the same - psy girl escapes, meets stranger, is afraid of him and he hates her kind, then he's the love of her life and ready to defy the worlds they know for each other. You know exactly where the story's going before you start the book and the plots aren't changing at all.

What was most disappointing about MaryJanice Davidson’s story?

The story line is the same - psy girl escapes, meets stranger, is afraid, then he's the love of her life.

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

nothing

Was Undead and Unappreciated worth the listening time?

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf.

What did you like best about Bitten? What did you like least?

Story was entertaining and easy to follow. Hated the narrator - she sounded like she had cottonmouth. lips sticking together smacking sounds - couldn't finish the book.

What didn’t you like about Aasne Vigesaa’s performance?

She sounded like she needed water.. Drymouth so bad she had smacking sounds throughout the first few chapters - that's as far as I could stand it. I quit listening.

Was Bitten worth the listening time?

NO
