Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Staked by Kevin Hearne is the eighth book in his Urban Fantasy series, the Iron Druid Chronicles. If you are a consumer of urban fantasy and have not picked up this series yet, SHAME ON YOU. Especially, if you are consuming audiobooks. Staked might be my favorite in this series and yet I cannot quite put my finger on why. Maybe it was the how the backstory has progressed and grown. Maybe it was simply the combination of humor and fantastic world building. Maybe it was the wide variety of characters that I have truly come to feel connected to…. Read more »

Audiobook Review: No Such Thing as Werewolves by Chris Fox

Audiobook Review: No Such Thing as Werewolves by Chris Fox

No Such Thing as Werewolves by Chris Fox is the first book in his Deathless series. This audiobook was a truly wonderful surprise. My brain was not quite ready to process the awesome it was receiving. Hey! I was caught off-guard! It is true. I loved this book. I kind of suspected a bit of mediocreness all the way around, but that is what I get for assuming. In all fairness (so this doesn’t sound like I am saying this was peeerrrfffecccctttt) the beginning was a little slow and pieces of it took a bit to fall into place. OK, so… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Giving Up The Ghost by S.A. Price

Audiobook Review: Giving Up The Ghost by S.A. Price

  Giving Up the Ghost is the first book in the 13 Shades of Red series by S.A. Price. Giving Up the Ghost is a  behind the scenes look at a band’s life with an intriguing mixture of supernatural elements. Giving Up the Ghost is a story I didn’t know much about when I started it. Going in blind was a perfect way to start and I quickly became fascinated with the entire cast of characters. Each character held a unique feeling to them and as the story went on I became even more intrigued by the psychology of the story…. Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels is the first book in The Genie and the Wizard series.  This is a DNF review. After a very strenuous attempt to listen and make it though, I got to about the 1/2 way mark before deciding I just needed to move on. It has been a very long time since I have posted a DNF review. Making it just short of the half-way mark before throwing the towel in is a big deal for me and I feel I need to speak my mind about my thoughts.  After all ….  that is kind… Read more »

Audiobook Review: An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary

Audiobook Review: An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary

An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary is the first book in her Witch Central series. With a light feel full of family and growth, this audiobook was a joy to listen to. An Imperfect Witch was kind of a random pick for me and not my normal go-to full of higher magic and action. This soft and sweet listen doesn’t quite fit into one genre either. It had a touch of magic and a touch of mystery, but overall this book was really about family and personal growth. It also touched on some of the more raw pieces of myself… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older is the first book in his Bone Street Rumba series.  This Urban Fantasy was full of grit and soul and an absolute pleasure to listen to! I snatched up this offer on a whim after looking at the other audiobook options.  An author I have never heard of, that is narrating his own book?  Intrigue won the internal debate, but I am going to admit that I was skeptical and a bit pre-judgmental that it was going to be a flop.  I mean, Mr. Older DID HIS OWN NARRATION.  This is something that doesn’t… Read more »
