Dragonslayer Dragon Heart (Dragon Heart Book 1) Audiobook by Isobelle Cate – Review by Dr. Anya Schultz

This book is based in Greek Mythology, the story of dragons and their slayers. The story is that the dragonslayer will not be a complete person until they slay their dragons. By slaying one’s dragon, they release their soul into themselves in order to live their complete, fulfilled life. One night, dragonslayer Apollo, aka Saxton, meets a woman named Orelle, in a club. Her dancing and scent intoxicates him and he is immediately attracted and doesn’t understand why. Orelle, is a dragon disguised in her human form. The two of them have a mutual attraction, but Orelle is not supposed to be out amongst the crowds. However, the two of them keep finding each other and finally give in to their whims of sexual attraction. Each of them, though, are keeping many secrets. How long can these secrets stay hidden? Will they figure out why the attraction is there, and if they do, what does that mean since they are mortal enemies?

Overall, I thought this book was okay. I like the idea of the story and the Greek Mythology behind it. I thought that the characters were interesting. Orelle, I liked her ambition and straight-forward aspects. With Saxton, he was extremely straight-forward which I don’t normally have issues with, but I found it unattractive in this character. I think a lot of that comes from the wording that the author uses. There were times where I just thought the wording was cringy, and I like dirty talk, etc. He did grow on me toward the end of the story, however. I also didn’t really like the narrator of the audiobook, he sounded Scottish. This could be a big reason why I thought that the book was just okay. The accent was pretty thick so I, at times, lost interest in the story.

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen – Review by Torey Foster

Murder Creek is a story of a journalism student working on a story of a disappearance that took place 20 years ago at Murder Creek. Lacey disappeared leaving only a bloody scarf behind. Eve is drawn to the case and believes there are dark secrets to be uncovered and not everything is as it seems in this town. The more she investigates, the more danger she is in, as not everyone wants secrets revealed and they will do everything they can to prevent her from digging them up.
I have to say I really enjoyed this story. It has a great plot, full of mystery and danger. I would definitely recommend you buy the book, BUT NOT THE AUDIO VERSION. I really struggled listening to this reader. It was like she was trying too hard to act throughout the whole reading, to the point of distracting from the story. She would be reading a suspenseful or scary part but would talk super soft like you would talk to a small child. Her tone did not fit what was happening in the story at all and for me, it made it hard to listen to and to keep my attention on what would normally be a book that I couldn’t put down. I would have preferred a robot voice. Justice was not done to this great story, in the audio version, but I would definitely recommend you read it yourself or use the text-to-speech option.

I absoluetly loved every second of listening to this book! The story was well written with the details pulling the listener in and needing to know what was going to happen next! The narrator made it fun to listen to and kept you listening with small voice ques! Definitely recommend this for a listen!

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen – Review by Ashley Hasting

Eve Sawyer is a journalism college student. She had her report done already, but felt there was another mystery to solve in Murder Creek with a disappearance long ago. In this town, she meets many people, pulls out clues from interesting sources, and you wouldn’t believe the result! Absolutely a great read!

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

Wow……..as I sit here I cannot stop thinking about this book.
Eve is a college student who happens to come across a place called “Murder Creek” in her travels.  This totally intrigues Eve, and after some searching about this place, she stumbles upon a cold case of a woman who disappeared years earlier.  Eve is drawn to this story and decides to investigate further to write her research paper on for her journalism college class.  Little did Even k now once she opened up old wounds…secrets come out.
If you love a story with a cold case mystery feel, deceit, lies, secrets, twits and heartbreak…definitely listen to this book. Wow!! What a story!

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen – Review by Ashleyann Sanabria

An intriguing murder mystery with a few twists along the way. Being in the head of a journalist on a mission was interesting and made you feel like you were doing the investigating. I would have liked the mystery to be a bit higher stakes and make it more exciting to follow, but it was interesting none the less. The ending was so heartfelt and concluded the mystery in a great way. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

A fantastic audio book! This author never fails to entertain me with her writing and I love that I never really know what I’m going to get when I decide on one of her books. I thought the main characters took a little bit of time for me to warm to but once I did I thought she was great! She was definitely determined to find out what happened to Lacey! The narrator really brought the story to life and I certainly felt like I was right there with eve collecting clues and trying to find out what. Happened.

Overall a great audio book and one that I would highly recommend.

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen – Review by Sara Grantham

This was my first audio book in many, many years… and I was amazed at just how fast I was pulled into the story! I could not stop listening. Jane Suen created a story and characters that were seamless and relatable. Eve was the perfect heroine – a determined college student who wanted to find the truth about a cold case in a small town. Her relentless drive kept me engaged and I finished Murder Creek in one sitting! Very compelling and intriguing.

Murder Creek (Audio Book) by Jane Suen

 

Murder Creek (Audio) is a  Mystery that is packed with action, murder, mystery and suspense. I truly enjoyed listening to this fast paced story as much as I did reading it.  The narrator did an amazing job of bringing the story and characters alive. Her different tones pulled me in and I found myself lost (caught up) in the story and nothing else got done.  I’m a huge fan of this author and I’m definitely going to check out more audio from her. Get ready to be taken on a journey of  mystery and suspense  in Murder Creek as  Evie tries to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Lacey Walker. Evie  doesn’t stop until she has the answers and some are where she never expected them to be.  Will  she uncover the truth of what really happened?  Will she  uncover why Lacey Walker disappeared?  I highly recommend listening to this fast paced story to find out what happens next.  I can’t wait to listen to more books by this author.
