Lethal Journey (ADULT AUDIO)

Lauren Taylor, Manhattan D.A., has lost everything.  Prosecuting Gino Valdina has cost her everything she has held dear.  Gino will do anything to save himself and so will Lauren, and Lauren is about to find out things are even more crazy than she thought, but she will find help in unexpected places.
This was a great action filled, suspenseful story.  I love Ms. Cresswell's writing and have read/listened to many of her other books and enjoyed every one of them.  I always feel as though I am part of the story, like I am right there with the person this time with Lauren, cheering and crying with her.  I love the surprise twists they keep me on my toes.  I had the audio narrated by Rebecca Hansen who has a way of differentiating the characters to make each one very different and stand out.

Bluescreen: A Miridor Novel (ADULT AUDIO)

LA 2050 Where most people have a djinni, a jack and a smart device implanted in your head that does everything from open your door to make phone calls, to control your money.  But Marisa likes to game with hers.  But when her gamer friend gets a hold of a new drug called bluescreen, which plugs directly in to the djinni and is supposed to give the user a safe high, only they find out it corrupts the users djinni with new code and takes over the person.  While trying to clean up the mess for their friend Marisa finds herself deeper in the net than any of them have ever even heard of.
If you know me than you know I am a huge sucker for any computer gamer/hacker/jacker books, so I totally went nuts when I saw this one, and a very awesome friend bought it for me (thank you thank you thank you), because this was such a awesome book.  I can't say enough about it, if you like action, suspense, computer type thriller books than this is for you!
Oh and Roxanne Hernandez was so awesome narrating the audio, there truly could not have been a better narrator for this book she was so good.  All the different voices for everyone and even the calm and exciting and back and forth, I don't know, she was just so great.  I know there is a part two and I can't wait to get that one also.  But if you think this might be your kind of book don't stand there, run and get it now you really don't want to wait.

Rise of Shadows: Lost Tales of Power Book 3 (ADULT AUDIO)

Shadow has a ship and has put together a crew for the first Alpha Academy Force.  But are they ready?  Will they be able to keep the light while the darkness waits patiently to attack?

This book is just as action packed and suspenseful as the others, I don't know how author Trigili does it but the story is awesome and leaves you breathless for the next book.  Narrator Jack de Golia doesn't help as he makes the story so realistic, you feel like you are right there with Shadow and the team, a part of them.  He has a voice for each character, and can paint the scene for you so you are there he is so awesome in his craft, that I just can not wait for the next book/audio.

Loup-Garou The Beast of Harmony Falls (The Ian McDermott PhD Paranormal Investigator Series) (ADULT AUDIO)

When the peace of the beautiful Mount St. Helens wilderness is broken byseveral grusome deaths, local lawman Bub O'Brien calls on cryptozoologist Ian McDermott.  But when Bud goes missing as well, Deputy Charlie Redtail and Ian team up to take on the the local legeand, the Loup-Garou, and bring peace back to the area.
This book was action packed, grusome at times, scary, and very interesting with all the lore.  I have heard many takes on this story but the Loup-Garou was a new and refreshing one.  I hope someday Ian McDermott makes to the Big Easy, for I think that would be very interesting.  Also, I had the audio version, with narrator S.W. Salzman and he ramped up the creep factor exponentionally, and keep me right on the edge of my seat the whole time.  Mr Salzman's performance is nothing if not surperb, he really made Charlie and Ian's personalities awesome to me and this is one audiobook that will stand out for a long time and be a quick recommendation for anyone looking for something creepy/scary.

Extinction Horizon: The Extinction Cycle, Book 1 (ADULT AUDIO)

Delta force team, Ghost, has been through everything imaginable until they are sent to a medical research facility to recover some papers and samples, there they meet monsters that were once the men that worked there and have been exposed to a strain of Ebola.  But what can be worse than the virus?
The book is fast pace, action packed, suspenseful, and military/medical action thriller.  It is a wonderful hang on the edge of your seat story.  The characters are well put together, Master Sergeant Beckham treats his men like a real MSgt. should, he would not ask them to do anything he would not do himself, I would be honored to be part of team Ghost.  So if you like apocalyptic, medical, military thrillers this is the book for you because this book is wonderful.  If audiobooks are more your style you will not go wrong with this one either, as Narrator Bronson Pinchot brings each character to life and weaves a awesome world for you through his narration with this story, his voices for each of the characters is remarkable and you won't regret it, he really breathes life into the audio version and you will loose yourself in the world of Team Ghost.

This is a non stop action, thriller with so much suspense in it I thought I was going to fall off of my chair many times.  It is so awesome I cheered and cried for Ruby, she rocks, no matter what, she gets up and keeps fighting, I so want to be just like her she is so cool.

Agent Smith and the Naughty Elf (ADULT)

It is Christmas Eve at the Utility Company, the secret government agency utility company, not the one you pay for lights and such each month.  Agent Smith is staying late finishing up some paperwork, procrastinating is more like it, when a package comes in from Area 51with some extra cheer for Agent Smith and his Director, that gives everyone a Merry Christmas.

This is a awesome, action packed, side splitting, funny, short story, that the Swordstrom Brothers, Will and Paul, have added to their Utility Company series for Christmas and it is one that is not to be missed.  It truly is hilarious and will have you giggling for days.
