Readers:Katherine Kellgren & Jeff WoodmanShort Review: Fairly standard 'boy meets girl, boy turns out to be vampire' romance - but with a few twists you likely won't expect. A pair of excellent readers, endearing characters and a fresh take on Romanian vampires make this a very enjoyable story.
Reader:Johanna ParkerShort Review: Well read first installment of the Southern Vampire Mysteries series (better known now as the books that inspired HBO's TrueBlood series). Sookie Stackhouse is a telepathic waitress in a world in which vampires have "come out of the coffin", and her world is getting more dangerous with each passing the day.
Reader:Ilyana Kadushin and Matt WaltersShort Review: Your patience is rewarded and the camera pulls back to show you the full picture of where we have been headed across the landscape of these 4 extravagant novels. For me this was a very satisfying conclusion to the Twilight Saga.
Reader:Neil GaimanShort Review: Neil Gaiman reads his Newbery Medal winning book beautifully. His nod to Kipling's The Jungle Book is just scary enough, intriguing, inventive, well-written, enchanting . . . it's downright wonderful. I loved Bod, Silas, Scarlett, Liza, Miss Lupescu, and the rest of the graveyard's denizens and rooted for them throughout the story. I miss them. I'll return to this book again and recommend it to adults and kids.
Reader:James MarstersShort Review: Down on his luck detective Harry Dresden also happens to be a real, live wizard. This introduction to Harry's world includes magic, potions, a talking skull named Bob, werewolves - and of course a murder mystery. James Marsters is brilliant.
Eclipse (Twilight Saga, Book 3)Author:Stephenie MeyerReader:Ilyana Kadushin and Matt WaltersShort Review: Meyer gets better with each book. With this book, she has found a good rhythm. The quieter bits of this story have a stronger voice than those in the first 2 books of the saga. Book 3 digs deeply into Bella's relationships and finally starts to ask the question of "Why?". We still get good action scenes (because there is always action in a world that has vampires and werewolves) - but we also see Bella make conscious choices with an eye to the consequences in her future.
Reader:Ilyana KadushinShort Review: The good: a fresh and creative version of vampire and werewolf legends with characters you care about and great action scenes. The less good: lots and lots of Bella's internal angst-ridden dialogue (not that there is anything wrong with that, if you have a taste for that sort of thing).
