What a fantastic series I have read the first three on my own I wish that audible would get the whole series, really original and keeps you on the edge. Yes you must stretch your imagination but don't you have to do that with most fiction. More Of this series PLEASE
I knew some of the authors, and was very happy with what they offered.I also got to know a few new ones. Karen Chance and Carrie Vaughn. You can't go wrong with this anthology. Sometime I laughed out loud.
I've followed this series and "Mercy Thompson" since their beginnings. The story in this third book of "Alpha and Omega" is the best so far in this series. Although I did figure out who was instigating the honorable serial killings, it did turn out more complicated than I thought. There will be a 4th book in this series, at least that is the way the ending of this book left me feeling. It sets the supernatural world on it's ear at the end and there just may be a holy war between humans and supernaturals. I'm sure Ms Briggs will do us proud.
Halfway to the Grave is delicious! The Best of the Genre! 10 stars! A+
I am 30 and I write this review for anyone who might think this is young adult nonsense:
Personal Disclaimer: Im new to the genre. I snubbed my nose to it bc of the pop culture craze of Twilight, and a strict loyalty to the Vampire world of Ann Rice. Somehow, I stumbled into the paranormal/time travel genre with Karen 's Fever series, and then finally read Outlander. After dabbling in a few JD Ward books, "The Night Huntress" series was recommended to me and I downloaded this book. I was judgmental of the cover and the silly name, and it just sat in my audible library for months. After listening to a heavy depressing book, I needed a break and put this on...
I LOVE this book. I'm addicted and in love with these characters. Bones is surprisingly funny and charming but very different from the smoldering alpha males in every other romance novel I've read. Cat is my favorite heroine since Scarlet O'hara! This book is so different from any other "vampire" or paranormal book I've ever read. It's funny, sexy, and completely engaging.
But to my amazement, it also contains one of the hottest love scenes ever written, not because of any graphic sex, but because of the chemistry and tenderness of the two characters. I was surprised by how sexy this book was. And the author doesn't play the same old games of delaying the "good parts" till the end, which is frustrating and gets old pretty quick! (I waited 5 books for Moning's characters to finally hook up.. And still resent the frustration i felt) Instead Jeaniene Frost uses the integrity of her writing to create sizzling chemistry and true emotion between this unlikely couple.
The story itself is intriguing and unfolds as a suspense filled battle with the reader just as interested in the plot as in the characters love life. What a true gift of a book.
Finally, I must say a narrator makes or breaks an audio book. In this case, Tavia Gilbert is AMAZING! I want her to read every book I have. Her character voices are wonderful, and she brings this to life better than any actor could on a movie screen.
This book has it all! And I plan to devour every book by this author!
