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… 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… 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… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

 I tried desperately NOT to put anything spoilerish in this review.  I am not perfect, but I did try. Burned by Karen Marie Moning is the seventh book in the Fevered series.  I have sung my love of this series for many many years and It is one of the few series I always think about rereading.  That being said, Burned just didn’t hold up to any expectations. I am not sure what just happened here.  I was left feeling disappointed, confused, and… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Audiobook Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman has a special talent – writing creepy and not in the same way blood or gore are creepy. Gaiman does not need to use curse words or violence.  His true talent is recognizing the childlike fears we hold inside and creating a story that explores the depth of them. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is such a great example of this talent.  The innocent fears of an everyday child come alive in this shorter story about an impossible journey.  Impossible,… Read more »

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Disclaimer:  Vacant by Alex Hughes is the first book I have read in the Mindspace Investigation Series.  **Unintentional spoilers may be contained in this review. Vacant by Alex Hughes might have settled better with me, if I would have not listened to it.  However, that totally could go the other way.  Why am I not sure?  It is simple.  This is one of those “on the line” books for me.  It borders being good and not-so good.  When this happens,  I… Read more »
