Charming

One of the best books I’ve read (listened to) in years! It was compelling but the characters were charming-the best combo! I want you I join the Lois club!

Not very engaging

This book didn't have a lot of potential to begin with but why on why can't they choose readers who can pronounce the Russian words? I'm not even sure he got Da right - it was painful to listen to!

More soft porn than mystery !

This is not a mystery. I guess it might be a romance but don't be fooled by the advertising - it is much dirtier than Janet Evanovich's books!

Always entertaining and thoughtful

I love this series and I was a little concerned to see that there was a new reader but he did a great job. Worth the credit!

Worth the credit!! (or even to buy!)

This is even better than the first book! Sybella is a much more realistic character!

Fast Paced and clean

Great story! I hadn't read a JA Jance book in a while and I'd forgotten how much I like her characters. I solved one of the mysteries early but there were actually two incorporated into this book and the second outcome was a complete surprise.

More Kids of Gods and Godesses

Same idea as Rick Riordan's books - that the gods and goddesses have kids but with a different twist. In this case they are all training to defeat/hold back the god Loki. The book is part mystery part fantasy.

A Pleasant Surprise

This was deeper than I expected it to be. It's definitely YA but it still has a good message about war crimes. I'm looking forward to reading another one.

Great Story for teens or adults!

This was a real surprise. I've enjoyed Coben's Myron Bolitar books but this is by far the best book I've read by him. It was a complex plot, used good vocabulary and didn't have the gratuitous sex that are in Coben's adult books.

A Compelling Autobiography!

I really enjoyed this biography. The story was compelling and though it is obviously a little biased (there are two sides to every story) I finished the book liking Wyclef even more. If you grew up listening to the Fugees and Wyclef like I did you should definitely read this book. Sam's narration is an added benefit because it makes the reader feel like they are listening to Wyclef himself.
