Nineteen-year-old Absidy Jones is a ghost magnet, a sensitive person spirits flock to when they can't cross over. After her brutal past escaping the hordes of ghosts vying for her attention, she spends her reclusive existence melting down iron into bite-sized pieces. Whether alloy or wrought, ancient paper clips or nails, consuming iron is the only thing that keeps the ghosts away. But when Absidy's sister goes missing in deep space, a dangerous place brimming with rogue planets, ship-eating nebulas, and vicious aliens, Absidy vows to find her.

This is the first book in one of the most imaginative series I’ve read for a while, featuring Absidy a twenty year old student waiting for her family to meet for christmas break. When she finds out that her older sister has gone missing she is determined to find even if she is in black space.
Dressed as a teenage boy called Lewis she ends up as a trainee chief on a small ship with a small crew. Nothing goes right as the ship is haunted and its Absidy sees ghosts. So the adventure starts and takes directions you in directions you can’t imagine. This is a step in the future that is haunting and frightening at times. When Absidy went on board she never imagined she would have deal with Monsters around every corner. The only good thing as far Absidy knows is that Mase knows her secret, and soon they start getting hot and heavy. I'm not giving anything else away, I don't want to spoil it for anyone.I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook, it kept glued to my headphones.

 Clem wakes up after a vicious attack that leaves with amnesia and remembers nothing about her life before. While trying to find out more information about her past. Clem visit a tattoo parlor out to speak to the owner about a tattoo she has. When meets Ed the artist, she encounters nothing but hostility. Clem is amazed to finds out Ed is her ex and she broke his heart.

Clem has no memory of their relationship or any feelings. Ed is fantastic helping Clem even though she is different from before. The new Clem is more forthright and speaks her mind and is lovely and snarky. The story is told from Clem’s pov, and wonderfully done.

This book blew me away, Andi Arnt was fantastic as Clem, your pulled into the story and can’t stop listening. This is one seating listen, walking around with earphones all day. The love interest is sexy swoony Ed the absolute best book boyfriend. A five star listen. I loved it. This is an Audible Original, the book will be release later in the year.

Well this episode of the space trilogy is everything I wanted and more. Rhea founds out more about her family and her heritage. Rhea and her helpers are running out of time so save the outer verse from war. There is so much happening in this book it keeps you listening far into the night. Finally we get all the answers and even some a happy ending for some of the characters. 

The Narration was perfection Dawn is Rhea. As I always feel with audiobooks if I am in the world I’m listening too, I don’t notice the narration. I wasn’t pulled from this exciting story once, thank you Dawn!

The second book starts with non-stop action, with Reah getting caught and betrayed everywhere she goes. In the first book I found it hard to relate to Rhea in the beginning. In this book I felt more invested in the outcome.  In this book we find out more about the Inner Diverse. In this we find out so much more about the conspiracy to destroy some of the human colonies. As always I get all excited and on tenterhooks and then it finishes. I am now looking forward to  listening to the Book three to find out more. We have Reah somehow managing to escape all the traps she walked into. I hope we get a final resolution for Reah as her heart’s in the right place.

This is the first book in a new series and the first from this author for me. We follow the misadventures of Reah Hawke an Galactic Guardian, who is investigating mass murder of a Religious Sect. This is a long listen and you have concentrated at first to get the picture on Reah, the universe she inhabits. We follow Reah’s investigation with a tough and gruff EXTERIOR HIDES of things that have happened in her past that have haunted her ever since. The more you learn the more you want to KNOW. There is one concession when I finished there is book two to listen too.
The narration is addicting leaving you wanting more.

Full disclosure: Before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer - because it was free. I think it's important to be open and honest with your coworkers, don't you? So here I am, being open and honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide. I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for.

I really loved this book and especially Peyton who has an unrequited attraction to her boss. Rome her boss has no idea Peyton exists, when he whole concentration is totally on the business he built from the ground.
That is until she hands in her notice, as she is starting her own business. Hoping for some work as a consultant, with no luck. While working her notice Rome finds out how irreplaceable she is.
After drinking too much at her leaving do, she decides to send him a message or more of a drunken proposition with the theme being “I want to bang you” the phrase that keeps going through Rome’s brain.
At first Rome is appalled, but then he can’t help responding. So the dance begins, as Rome soon realises what an integral part of his marketing Peyton was. Rome becomes obsessed with communicating with handsromingmybody. This is a slow burn kind of romance, but once on the go gets very hot and Rome becomes quite swoony. Rome is a not a ladies man, devoting himself to his business. His best friend and business partner Hunter is the only person he could talk to. When he was with Peyton she could see through him and knew what he wanted. A really enjoyable read and can’t wait for hunter’s book which hopefully is coming soon.
A Great writing duo has been born and I can't wait for more.
Wow what great narration, I have read the book and loved it. Listening to this audiobook Ava Erickson and Alexander Cendese just brought the characters to life in a different way. I loved it when Alexander was reading the emails from Peyton it was hilarious. Hunter was great I can’t wait for his book. Ava is always excellent, and brought Peyton to life and the performance which left me mesmerized. This is the first time I have listened to Alexander and it won’t be the last.

Well William Todd certainly has managed to recreate the feel of a Sherlock Holmes story. This being an audiobook of only 2hrs 38mins it’s a step into Victorian England with Holmes arriving in Keswick for a restful stay with Dr Watson. On arriving a murder has been committed, a headless corpse gives his holiday a bonus. Ben Werling narrates as Dr Watson and does a fine job holding my attention with this slice of life in Victorian England with a Sherlock Holmes Mystery.

Barnabus’ nephew is behaving oddly. Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front-room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared? Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

After being immersed in this audiobook and the plethora of worlds and adventures that Barnabas J. Wildebeast a school teacher on his summer break gets embroiled in an adventure so fantastic it can’t help but carry you along for the ride. What a ride this audio was when Barnabas comes  home to find out that nephew who he has looked after for the last couple of years due to his sister’s death. Ridley has been recruited by a jinn to fight in a war on another world.
This is the start of an adventure so spectacular and imaginative Joe Mahoney sends the reader on such incredible journeys  you don’t want to go home, even if there are some that are weird .
Joe Mahoney also the narrator, I have to say with a voice like that I would listen to anything he narrated. I loved this mesmerising audiobook with its non stop action and adventure.
