This is another wonderful, kick butt book by Kim Creswell. I love Whitney Steel, she is one tough lady, I want to be her when I grow up. The action and suspense in this sequel to Reflections is so intense you can't stop reading/listening you just have to find out what happens. Rebecca Hansen does a great job making this story her own. I love this series and this book but it is a adult book for sure.

This is a exciting, action packed, suspense filled book. I really enjoyed it and think it would be really cool to have a dad like Grace's. You also get some glimpses into Grace's childhood which is really insightful and awesome. I had the audio version narrated by Kevin Pierce who did such a awesome job on this book I can't wait for more. Mr. Pierce really ahs a way with bringing these characters to life and giving you someone to root for in these tough times.

This book is filled with a ton of action and suspense, you might just fall off of your seat while rooting for Em, Rogue and all of their friends. These characters are all so strong and smart you will wish they were your friends, they are that awesome and their bonds are so strong. I had the audio narrated by the wonderful Elizabeth Klett, she did such a great job, I totally lost myself in this book and found myself wanting to help and cheering Em and Rogue on myself. She just made this book so awesome for me, what a wonderful author narrator team I hope they stay together for a long time.

This book shows Tony Stark from child to him as a adult still inventing, still trying to the right thing. There is enough action in this book to keep anyone's attention through the whole book, because there is so much of it. There are so many twists and turns you will think you are on a roller coaster. Watch out for the AI it may or may not be what it seems. This is a awesome book for all the Iron Man fans as well as the Eoin Colfer and Marvel fans.

This was a exciting, action filled, suspenseful, story of survival. I totally enjoyed listening to S.W. Salzman narrating this book, he does such a awesome job with all the different characters and expressing their emotions in his voice, it was amazing. I can't wait for more to hear what happens to T.J. and the crew.

This is a great sci-fi book and no you don't need to have any knowledge of Nick Webb's Legacy Fleet to understand this book but you might find yourself really wanting to read it after you read this, just a warning. If you are familiar with Legacy Fleet this should fill in some blanks for you, so no harm either way. This is just another awesome book by the Swardstrom brothers that you just do not want to miss.
This is a wonderful sequel to the Amber Project, it is filled with a ton of action and the suspense will have you falling off of your seat. Narrator Steve Barnes does a great job again with the book his use of different voices for each character is awesome, he really hit this one out of the park. I can't wait for the next part from these two guys and find out what happens to Terry and his friends.

The was an awesome story despite what you might think. It brings up a lot of social issues that will make you think but has some very funny parts as well. Narrator Patricia Santomasso is a amazing Cara, but portrays all the characters wonderfully. She really does make this book wonderful. This is a really great book give it a try, you won't regret it.
In the sequel to Black Widow Forever Red Margaret Stohl raised the bar, the action is non-stop, and the suspense sometimes will keep you up past your bedtime until you find out what happens. However, it is the twists and turns that keep you guessing how things will turn out in the end. I really liked this awesome book even more than the first. Sometime I would also love to review the audios of this series to hear how the narrator puts her spin on the book as well.

I wasn't sure how the last book could be topped , but this one picked up right where the last one left off and the action and suspense didn't waver. I went with the audiobook version narrated by Kara Kavocich Stewart who just brings Ourea and all of it's people to life. I am so thankful for awesome narrators like her for many different reasons but mostly for bringing great books to life for me on days I am not able to read. Her talent makes those days much more tolerable.

This was another awesome audiobook by narrator Jack de Golia, and after 9 Project audio's he is the voice of the project for me. His voices for each of the characters are the ones I have come to know and love, especially Ronnie, he is my favorite. Mr. de Golia also breaths life into the story as he reads it, it just flows so nicely, I can't imagine the Project any other way.

This is a wonderful book, action packed, full of suspense, and has more twist and turns than a roller coaster. It is well written and the characters are well rounded and believable. I love this book and I wanted to jump right in and help Anna. I don't want to say to much for fear of spoilers, so you will just have to get your own awesome copy of The Delphi Effect and see for yourself, but Rysa Walker does not disappoint.

I found this book especially interesting as I was about half way though it when hurricane Matthew became a real threat to Florida. I could see things happening on the news and from what family and friends who live there where reporting, and how it paralleled this book. We have had our own issues here where I live in Kentucky with major week long power outages after ice and wind storms, but you never think of what would happen if the whole country went down at once and for a very prolonged period of time. It makes you think, for a fiction book this one hits close to home.
This book is really good, it is action packed and the suspense will have you falling off of your seat. The characters are ordinary people just trying to get by. I had the audiobook version narrated by Kevin Pierce who does an awesome job giving each character its own personality in voice and attitude. He really shaped this story and kept Jim Powell's character honest and real to what he says he is, a man who just wants to get home to his family.

I had the audiobook version narrated by Kara Kovacich Stewart and it was awesome. I don't always bring up my dyslexia, but sometime I stay away from reading these books because the made up names for things make the book really hard to read but when I can get them in audio form I really enjoy them a lot, and when you have someone like Kara Kovacich Stewart narrate the book then you feel really special as she makes it an enchanting experience, I can't wait to listen to the next one and find out what happens.

This was a awesome graphic novel not only in story but in illustrations as well. I hope we get to see more of Wonder Woman from Jill Thompson as I would love to follow more of what happens to Diana as she tries to prove her worth and avenge herself in the eyes of her sisters.
This sequel to Odin's Promise, is set in Norway during World War 2. Mari, a young woman, is still working to find herself, and her courage, in this new world she has found herself in, as even more Nazi's have come to live in her village and have even taken over her home and school. This has made it much harder for the resistance fighters in her area, one of which is her big brother Bjorn. But Mari will be strong, and brave just like Bjorn told her she could.This is a awesome historical fiction book that is a part of WWII you don't hear much about. It is nice to hear a different part of this time in our history, and from a different point of view not often voiced. This book is chalked full of action and suspense, so there is something for everyone and you will learn a lot without knowing it. The story flows wonderfully and the characters are all well rounded and believable. They show real emotion and are just awesome and brave people.
Mari, Odin and Bjorn would be so proud of you.

This is not exactly a zombie book, but it is one of the best plague type books I have read, well listened too. I loved the side story that explained how the virus got to Florida in the first place, that was really cool, especially since I don't live there. It also really liked the how the story shows how the virus spreads and the only way to stop it as of that time. The book was very precise without the reader knowing it, no facts and figures but still precise.
I had the audio version narrated by Melanie Ewbank and she does a awesome job. There was one spot I knew it was coming because I actually did the books backwards, but she was so good with her voices and the emotions she puts into them she had me crying. Ms. Ewbank is just a awesome narrator and this is just a awesome book.
