The Other Side of Nowhere - is about a patient in a hospital struggling to stay alive, and his life flashes before his eyes, but there is a side door. Is it a dream or a nightmare? Read the story and find out.
Lastly my favorite story is Jonah - it is about a doctor that is brought in to psychoanalyze the first living machine, Jonah. But what happens when the makers want to put a end to this gentle, genius, awesome, caring AI? Well a doctors first duty is to do no harm, but how can he do his job with a computer? Read the story and find out, you won't be disappointed. All of these stories are awesome I hope you love them as much as I do, they all have action, suspense, and some twists and turns to them, that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Audiobook narrator Raina Marie tells these stories well although listen carefully for the story breaks or you might be a bit confused for a few seconds as she tends to very quickly.

Ten years ago Sebastian did something he can’t forgive himself for, it was so horrible that while his only friend is away for the summer Sebastian plans on letting his dark side take over and take away his pain forever. But then enters a girl, Aneesa, what does that do to his summer plans?
Bang is a wonderful book, it gives you a glimpse into the mind of a person in constant pain, a person that cannot find a way to ease this awful pain in anyway. This book is about Sebastian a fictional character with a fictional pain, however this could easily be about any number of real people with real pain just look at projectsemicolon.org. I don’t want to give anything away but this is an awesome book by author Barry Lyga and well worth the read, it brings real world headlines into a fictional storyline in a seamless way.

This book is definitely filled with a ton of action and suspense. Every time you think you have this story figured out the author calls squirrel and takes you off on a different and wonderful direction, it really keeps you on your toes. All of his character are well put together and you will find something to like even in the ones you don't like.
Audiobook narrator Fred Wolinsky takes this book and makes each and every character different and unique. He gives them different voices and different attitudes, Mr. Wolinsky makes you feel as if you are there in the story either helping your favorite character and hindering his enemies, but you are there with them in the story, seeing, hearing, feeling, everything and that makes for a awesome performance.

I have been fan of Ms. Quinn's books for a long time and that hasn't changed with this book, it was awesome. Audiobook narrator Nick Podehl made this world even better by lending his voice (or maybe I should say voices) to this awesome book and ascending the listener to another level, if you are a audiobook listener like me than this is one you will not want to miss Mr. Podehl is wonderful performance, somehow I missed the first book and will have to go back and find that one so I can listen to this one again, it is that good.

This is a very unique short story, I guess I never thought about futuristic con artist before. So much for my rose colored glasses. These characters and the story had to have been thought out five steps ahead for all of their cons and personalities to work with all the different situations. This book was not only amazing in the way it all came together and worked together but in how it all ended, which you will just have to read to find out for yourself, but you won't be disappointed.

This book takes you away from the wizards and introduces you to other races in the galaxy, and while that is different it is not a bad thing at all, this book is just as good and just as action and suspense filled as all the rest, it is well worth your time, and I hope it is not the last we see of the Sac'a'rith. Audiobook narrator Jack De Golia really brought this book to another level and transformed the listener to another world, the one where the story is taking place and the listener can live there for a while so they can live in the story not just listen to it.

This book was very interesting, I really loved all the paranormal/fantasy aspects, and how everything was so well thought out, everything made sense, there where no holes in the story. The action and suspense mixed with the backstories and other parts all made for a happy medium in this book.
Audiobook narrator Mikael Naramore did a awesome job with all the different voices, he had me there trying to help Alex and Douglas, or just helping with the horses around the farm. I found myself not wanting to get out of my car, I just wanted to keep listening.

This story twists and turns more than a roller coaster and has action galore. Dirge/Kallie is a strong and complex character that is well put together and will surprise you in many ways.
The audio narrated by Kara Kovacich Stewart is awesome and not one to be missed. Ms. Kovacich Stewart does such a great job on all the different voices for each character, I never get lost, it is as if I am right there living the story along with the characters. I really love listening to audiobooks, that Ms. Kovacich Stewart narrates.

This is such a cute book for middle grade readers on up or for little one to be read too. With all the different animals and a mystery that will hold the reader captive until the end when all is finally revealed. The illustrator, Kate Leibman, with her warm water color pictures add a awesome touch throughout the book.
There is also a multimedia site setup for the books at www.nocturnalsworld.com for children to interact and learn more about the nocturnal brigade and their nighttime world.

When Tea accidentally resurrected her soldier brother from the dead it changed her life's path forever. Although she's not sure if it is for the better or not, but Tea better learn fast for there is darkness coming, and it will be Tea who has to make the tough choices.
This is such a beautiful book to have such dark forces corrupt it's pages. The older witch takes the younger and teaches her the Asha ways, just like the Geisha teach. But Tea must also learn how to fight and defeat the dark, almost like one of the pretty dances described in the book. The author has weaved a very awesome mesmerizing tale, it is so good and powerful she will have hold of you until the very end when she chooses to let you go and it will leave you gasping for the next book in the series.
