I just didn't know what to expect with this, but it had us all in hysterics all the way listening and my daughters reaction after the first half hour was funny.
She never used to concentrate listening to stories for long until we discovered Audible, now shes happy to listen for a number of hours to the story or play, esp when they have good narrators or actors

The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox. As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians.

I used to enjoy watching dr.who on tv; except the darleks, so having this on audibe is real good n my daughter loved listening to this also. Even tho I do love a good film; of course it depends how good the actors, I find books come more alive cos they can live more in the imagination n you then get the sensation of being there yourself, going thru it all, feeling the action n all the pain.

Living up to its evocative name, Dark Fantasy is filled with strange stories to stir the imagination. Consider, if you will, ships that disappear in the night... secrets from a 40,000-year-old grave... the powers of witchcraft and black magic. Cross in to a world of mystery, suspense, and horror, and listen to tales like "The Edge of the Shadow", "The Thing From the Darkness", and "Dead Hands Reaching".

Zoe Lake is heading off to college - and she's excited. It's not a regular college, though. It's a magical college full of vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, sphinxes - and pretty much everything else you can imagine. Despite the monsters, it's often human nature that threatens her life most.

Any additional comments?

Absolutely adored listening to this, the performance from Alex is outstanding. She is extremly clever at changing her voice to make the characters talk n so bring the story alive. She's very clear whilst reading the book, so one can feel that shes putting her soul into this not just her heart, definately a terrific actress n I would def check more of work out.
This is the first book Iv ever read from D. L. Snow, but the story is really good n would most certainly recommend. No bad language, which is nice n is suitable for all ages
