    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    First, I have to say that the Tanya Eby has the nicest voice ever. I really wish I could have a conversation with her. And if you like/love dogs this book will leave you appreciating mans best friend even more. Fiona is a lovely character I could be friends with. I connected and felt something for all of the characters in this book. It was really well written. I can't wait to try my next Nora book!

    Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom - all because of a reckless bargain her father struck. And since birth, she has been training to kill him. Betrayed by her family yet bound to obey, Nyx rails against her fate. Still, on her 17th birthday, she abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, disarm him, and break the 900-year-old curse he put on her people. But Ignifex is not what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle - a shifting maze of magical rooms - enthralls her.

    This is one of those rare books that only come along once a year which leaves you feeling wholly satisfied. At the end I was sad it was over yet there was nothing left to ask for. It is so incredibly, beautifully written. I felt so in love and loved. Somehow I am quite positive I learned something new about love too.

    Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

    Story

    its just so annoying and impossible to get past a narrator who is the voice of a teenage girl but sounds more like a 50 yo smoker. im not even sure what happened in the book. i could only concentrate on her voice. also, the romance was really weak and the "action" was lacking. boring.

    ive had a thirst for a book just like this my whole life. i can listen to this series over and over. each time i glean something new. its soooo entertaining! the only bad part of it is that no other book compares. so waiting for book 3 is my only hope. oh and reading twilight for my "romance" fix. there is barely any romance in this book but thats the best part. you wont get beat down by love-y dove-y stuff.

    The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria - a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money.

    Clary Fray just wants her life to go back to normal - but that turns out to be impossible. For one thing, her mother is still in the hospital, in a mysterious coma. For another, she and her brother, Jace, have fallen under a cloud of suspicion now that the Shadowhunter world knows that Valentine is still alive - and that Jace and Clary are his son and daughter.

    Story

    Too much dialogue and not enough action. BUT still a great read and necessary for the series.

    Ugh! The narrator makes every character sound like a 90210 kid. "like oh. my. god." she's especially horrible when it comes to Jace. He almosts sounds gay and he's not so its hard to see him as Clary's (the main character) love interest.

But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street - and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends. The special Collector’s First Edition will include a never-before-seen letter from Will to his family!

    Story

    First, Id like to say why I gave the performance 1 star: Heather Lind makes most of the female characters sound like old whiny women except for the main character. If you've seen and heard the mother in Pride and Prejudice then imagine the female characters in this book to sound like her. Most of the women are younger than 22 and they sound like women in old age with high pitched annoying voices. The main character is 16 but sounds like she in her late 30's. Its disappointing and kind of hard to remember they are all young. Ed Westwick has a nice, sultry voice but again. The main character, Will, is 17 and sounds, well, old. Also, it is not easy to indentify the male voices becuase they sound the same. The accents he uses is a little too heavy at times and I have to listen to some parts more than once. This is one book that is better to actually read if you can. Otherwise adjusts your expectations and it works.

    If you've read Clockwork Angel you are in for a better story here. Tessa and Will reach new heights and the story takes twists and turns you'd never expect. It will break you heart. The characters history or backgrounds are revealed in depth and its shocking. I found myself sympathizing with characters I hated in the first book. Nothing is what it seemed.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Story

    The author does a great job of making this story of vampires believable and exciting. The conversations, drama, sex scenes, and fighting were balanced well. I would definitely try reading anything else she wrote.

    The main characters, Cat and Bones, are flawed unforgivably by the narrators prepubescent voice. Cat, 22, sounds like a whiny 15 yr old and Bones, 200+, sounds like Kelly Osbourne. As for ALL the other characters... they all sound like a witch. Literally. Think of "hello my pretty" and you've got the voice of her mom, grandparents, and the ghost in the graveyard.

    Now, the love story of the story is great for women who likes their boyfriend to be the opposite of a gentleman. For example, after they declare their love to each other he "roughs her up" so she can play the part of a drug addict. Since when do drug addicts look bruised and broken? Bones consistently puts Cat in mortal danger and nothing is thought of it by either character. He uses her as bait to lure other dangerous vampires and she gets hurt every time but neither one thinks twice about her safety. Its weird. But I try to appreciate if for being different.

    My best advice, read it instead of listen to it.
