Deadly Messengers Audio by Susan May. Narration by Anne Johnson

I loved Deadly Messengers when I read it the first time. Listening to this narration brought the book to life. I found myself actually laughing out loud in a couple of spots. This is not a funny story but there are a couple of comical scenes. The narrator did an amazing job changing her voice for the different characters. Her narrative took on the character and that characters personality perfectly. I enjoyed this more than reading it. Certain lines just stay with you in this book. The narration enhanced that. The characters are really well developed. The plot will take you places you will not believe.
I will keep this one to enjoy again.


The Cthulhu Child by David Brian

The Cthulhu Child is a story that proceeds a series of short stories. 21st century twilight zone. I thought I was reading the titled story that left my mouth hanging open as I turned the page to see a new story. Some of them are true life scary. Every one was a great read. You have no idea what’s coming. I wanted to read something by this author. Many people recommended as s starter book. I am now a fan of David Brian.

Ruler of Demons By Scott A Lerner (Samuel Roberts #2)

An awesome thriller. Good versus evil. The main character, Sam,is pulled into a situation he wants nothing to do with. He brings his friend, Bob, along. There is a serial killer on the loose. What starts out as a black and white mystery turns into a back stabbing fight to achieve control over all eternity. The characters are all well developed. Fast passed book. This is the second book. I am looking forward to reading the first one Cocaine Zombies.
