The Dark Knight Wyrd book 2.0 (ADULT AUDIO)

The Dark Knight is the sequel to the The Red King.  It picks up from the end of The Red King, where Frank and Holiday are still at it and the new people are still fitting in.  But one night Ash goes out to rescue a special needs kid, Cory, maybe not a kid anymore as he has had to grow up fast especially after the future he has seen.
A really amazing, thought out book with awesome characters and the jump in time with Cory was  pretty cool.  Cory is a strong kid and maybe that is what I liked most about him he can get through anything, he is vengeance, he is the night, he is Batman, I think he is my hero right now and I can't wait to see how his story ends up.  This is really a cool story and I can't wait for the next one especially with narrator Guy Williams reading, the audiobooks have been spectacular.  Mr. Williams has wonderful voices for the characters and he sucks you into their world as though you are there, he is a great narrator definitely one not to be missed.

The Flense part 3 (ADULT AUDIO)

Angelique has more pieces to the puzzle including the only survivor from the train, but if Angelique doesn't do something fast the girl won't be a survivor much longer.
Again, Mr. Tanpepper and Mr. Greene have brought this story out front and alive for the listener of this audiobook.  It makes you wonder if all of this could really happen in real life right here, right now.  Mr. Tanpepper's story makes you think and his story's is filled with all the action and twist and turns of a super roller coaster ride.  Mr. Greene brings the book alive with his awesome narration and storytelling abilities, he puts you right there in the middle of the action and everything that is going on and he might even put you in some spots you do not care to go.  This serial is so great I can't wait for more, really I can't  wait more, really please hurry.

Tales From the Haunted Mansion Vol II: Midnight at Madame Leota's (MG)

This was a really cool book about a man who came to the mansion looking for the famous Madame Leota so he could talk to his dead sister on last time, instead he encountered the mansions librarian (what a awesome job if I do say so myself) and was made to listen to several hair raising tales, (and I assure you reader, some are very creepy).
This book is really good for those middle grade readers looking for the creepy tales like goose bumps, but these come with a Disney twist as this mansion is the one of fame from the Disney park.  This book will make a awesome addition to any library even the haunted ones.

The Flense part 2 (ADULT AUDIO)

This is part two of the twelve part serial and it picks up right where the last one left off, with Angelique trying to put all the puzzle pieces together even though she doesn't have all the pieces yet, and she has a gun to her head. 
This story is one to suck you in and never let you go until it feels like it.  With Narrator Doug Greene reading it, it is even worse, he has all the characters down pat and he is so good at this you just loose yourself between his voice and Mr. Tanpepper's story you don't have a chance but to get sucked in and want more and more like a audio junkie.  All the action and twist and turns, who is spying on who and working for who.  All I can say is thank goodness there are twelve of these to keeps us going for a while, because you will want the next one before you finish the one you have.

Time Sniffers (Shadow World Book 1) (YA)

In the future when our world is in need of a alternative source of energy and scientist are desperately looking everywhere for one, one set of scientists are looking at harnessing black matter for a new energy, but they don't fully understand the consequences of doing that until the day they disappear.  It is just assumed that they blew up.  But the daughter (Bria) of one scientist knows her mom didn't blow up, she knows her mom is alive somewhere and when she sees a strange sign everywhere she knows she must do something to find her mom.  That is when K-Six comes into Bria and her Autistic brother Dylan's life to help them, and their friends sniff out the time her mom and the other scientist are trapped in and to close the rip. 
I don't want to say much else and give anything away.  I will say that the first couple of chapters are kind of science laden but once you get through that it is so good, action packed and full of twists and turns and I really hope there is more to come because there are certain things I need to find out what happened with as I am sure you will too if you read the book.

Death Knocks (YA AUDIO)

Who knew that a simple knock at the door could change ones life forever?  Unfortunately, Maverick knows that all to well now that everything he has known and loved has changed, his world is figuratively and literally upside down, and he doesn't even know where to start to try and put some of the pieces back together, but he knows he has to do something or the black eyed kids will tear some other kids world up like they did his.
I don't want to say to much for fear of giving to much away but this is a really awesome book, and the narrator, Jeff Simpson, really makes the book come alive with his voices for every different character and the way he pulls you into the story you are there living it with Maverick and his friends.  This is a really awesome action packed, twists and turns, kind of book by Ms. Hardy and I can't wait to see what happens to Maverick and his friends, because there must be more?

The Age of Innocence (ADULT AUDIO)

Mostly a documentary of culture of the elite rich in New York in the 19th century.  The love they had for each other but the life they were not allowed to live together.
This was a fascinating historical book  by Ms. Wharton and it really shows the reader all the ins and outs of the way things where back then.  It is the wonderful voice of narrator Elizabeth Klett that really brings New York and all the characters alive in the book, I don't think it is a  book I would have ever read but listening to Ms. Klett narrate this book brought me into New York like I was a bystander, watching it all happen that was so cool, thank you!
