    Davy has always been alone. He believes that he's the only person who can teleport. But what if he isn't? A mysterious group of people has taken Davy captive. They don't want to hire him, and they don't have any hope of appealing to him to help them. What they want is to own him. They want to use his abilities for their own purposes, whether Davy agrees to it or not. And so they set about brainwashing him and conditioning him. But there's one thing that they don't know....

    The fantasy merged with reality, science and politics is very entertaining. A couple of questions still linger which is a perfect primer for the sequel. I can't wait!

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    Story

    I really enjoyed the background and development of the characters. The world of a biker's club was unique and interesting. Joanna Wylde could have doubled the length of this story and I would have been very happy. Once I started listening, I didn't want to stop. The relationship between the two main characters was very believable.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    The adventures of Kvothe are spellbinding. What a life! It was so exciting to follow Kvothe through his many struggles, successes and failures. I'm ready for the next book to bring full circle the path of the young Kvothe to the older man who is waiting to die.

    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    Story

    Welcome to a world of magic where the humans are slaves. The elves control everything within their domain. The half-breeds are feared by the elves (for good reason) and the dragons are in hiding. This is a world where unicorns exist although they're called one-horns and are one of the most dangerous animals of all. It's a challenging world where the different aspects of 'humanity' are understandable and heartbreaking. The heroine is a wonderful character I loved to cheer for.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    Fascinating story with the reality of a typical apartment building, including a variety of interesting neighbors. Add the supernatural on top of what could exist right down the road and you've got one mind-bending adventure. I could easily identify with many of the characters which made the bizarre seem so much more possible.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story

    Sylvia makes me long to be a young twenty-something again for the physical benefits alone! The main characters are young, successful, gorgeous, and hot. The passion and emotional turmoil take the reader on a roller-coaster ride. I was left with a lot of questions about Gideon and Eva which I hope to get answered in the second book.

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

    Story

    I enjoyed the stereotypical man-in-charge and obedient-woman characters who are contradicted by strong romantic personalities. There are moments that made me laugh out loud and moments that made me cry. Many of the bedroom scenes are detailed and steamy. Just enough drama and intrique with idyllic romanticism. The Scottish accents are fun too.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Jim Butcher takes the reader on another wonderful adventure with Dresden escaping seemingly no-win situations. Dresden gets himself into very interesting situations as the White Knight with a target on his back. His friends (and a few enemies) come to his rescue more than once just when it seems Dresden's doomed for sure.

    The storyline changes to present itself from the perspective of 3 different characters. This took me off balance at first but provided a richness as the lives of the 3 characters intertwined. Very enjoyable!
