For #JIAM16 I am going to spotlight some of my favorite narrators. I plan on doing one a day until thKhristinee end of June. I hope you will give them a listen and if you have favorite narrators use this month to thank them for bringing such rich layers to stories we love! About Khristine Hvam is an award winning audiobook narrator, director, and voice over actress. Having studied acting for the theater and film, she soon discovered a love of voice over. You will hear her in TV/Radio commercials, video games, animated series, and most notably in over 200 audio book titles. Khristine has been honored with several Audio Publishers Association Audie Award nominations and in the summer of 2012 earned her first Audie Award in the fantasy category for her performance of Lani Taylor’s “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” and a second for “Astray” by Emma Donoghue. Khristine has also received five AudioFile Magazine’s Earphone Awards for her performances. Most recently she has begun directing audiobooks, a journey she never imagined taking,  but one she is thrilled to be exploring. Khristine is a proud member of SAG/AFTRA.

D. Waters Blood Cross by Faith Hunter Mercy Blade by Faith Hunter Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter Skinwalker by Faith Hunter   What I like about her: Khristine is another narrator that I have listened to far more than I have reviewed. The first book I listened to that she narrated was The Restorer by Amanda Stevens–great book and great narration. Next I listened to the Faith Hunter series. After hearing Khristine pull of Beast and Jane with such great gusto, I was hooked. I know that she is known in the YA Fantasy world. She is the reason that I tried the M.D. Waters and Laini Taylor series because after she became the narrator of the Vampire Academy series (books 2 and 3)–I realized that I trusted her voice in a reading realm that I am not always sold on. She really is one of the most dependable and enjoyable narrators out there!

First Thought when Finished: Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter was kick ass with characters I love. If the romance wasn’t there it would be darn near perfect (I am not a fan of any of the love interests in this series).

NOTE: I am in the minority where Archetype by M.D. Waters is concerned. Most people felt the story was brilliant, unique, and outstanding. I just never connected with the characters and the end just didn’t work for me. The writing is spectacular though so please give the book a try if it looks interesting to you!
