I Am Legend

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
Unabridged audio - 5 CDs

Very good story even though at first I thought it was just a re-wright of an old Vincent Price movie, Last Man on Earth (the movie was actually taken from the book, lol). The world's population has been infected by a plague and everyone except Robert Neville have become one of the living dead or vampires. I was a bit disappointed in the ending, but how else could it really end?

Definitely Dead

Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris
Unabridged audio - 9CDs

Charlaine is one of my favorite authors and I had previously read this one and wanted to do a listen. It was outstanding. The reader didn't have too, too much of an accent (something I always worry about when listening to a book set in the south). Her accent was a bit strong, but not distracting. I think Sookie is being stupid over the Bill thing, but otherwise I really have enjoyed this series.

Singer of Souls

Singer of Souls by Adam Stemple

A very nice surprise. I didn't think I would really like this one much, but it was a good story. It took it's time getting to the real plotline, but even the build up was interesting.

Dragon's Keep

Dragon's Keep by Janet Lee Carey

Very nice fantasy about a princess who was born with a dragon's claw. Her mother made it a custom to wear gloves and reveal one's hands only to one's husband so that no one would know of her daughter's curse. I really enjoyed this one. It held my attention from early on in the story and kept it throughout.

The Kiesha'ra Series #4 Wolfcry

The Kiesha'ra Series #4 Wolfcry by Ameila Atwater-Rhodes

A very big surprise in this one and I'm not sure what I think about it yet. I will have to read book number 5, Wyvernhail, before I can decide. I am going to a conference next week and decided I could only take small, paperbacks on the trip and Wyvernhail is a hard back book of regular size. The small paperbacks will just be so much easier to toss in my backpack and lighter on luggage. Maybe I can find a download, audio of Wyvernhail I can load onto my IPod, lol.
