Necropolis (Whyborne & Griffin)Necropolis by Jordan L. Hawk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is for the Audio Book only!

As I started the fourth book in the series I had pretty high hopes, and Jordan Hawk cleared that goal with some room to spare.

In order to avoid spoilers all I will say is you get a glimpse of the dirty, dusty and rough desert. You see Whyborne grapple with the "horrors" of living in a tent. You get a bit more background on Griffon (there can never be enough background). You get some good sex scenes. Finally you get a lot more background on Christine.

I wasn't sure how I felt about Christine when this all started. I wasn't sure if she was going to fit into the stereotypical woman with gay guy best friends. However she has been flushed out and given a pretty cool backstory. I look forward to more about her now as well.

Oh, on a down note, Christine sounds like a catty gay guy sometimes when the narrator reads her part. I am not sure if its on purpose or maybe just something I am hearing, but that was the only negative.

If you liked the first three, definitely you want to read this.

Locke & Key (Locke & Key #1-6)Locke & Key by Joe Hill

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

THIS IS FOR THE AUDIBLE AUDIO PLAY/BOOK ONLY!

To be perfectly honest I couldn't get into it. Listening to the audio play (is that what it is considered?) wasn't a lot of fun. The sound was echoey and not nearly as professional as other audio books I have listend.

I have read audio books that are read by a cast and those have been fine, but this is more like a play you are listening to and because you don't hear them talking about the action itself but just the sounds of the action (like a gunshot instead of them talking about raising the gun and firing) I found I couldn't get into it.

Also, even though there are some actors doing the parts, I just didn't really like any of their performance. I won't be listening to any more in this series. I wouldn't even recommend trying it. It isn't that the story idea is bad, but the way the performance works it just isn't for me.

I did give it two stars because the plot was interesting, maybe if you read it it will come out better.
