    They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common - and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious.

    MARCIA says: "GOING BACK TO #4 AFTER LISTENING TO MOST RECENT"
    "Really enjoying the series"
    Overall

    I like getting to know the characters more and laughing and crying with them. The book is well written and Susan Ericksen does a great job with all of the characters.

    Story

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    BRANDON says: "Antiques RoadShow, Burned Hair & Elvis"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I am a big Sookie fan and have to say that this should have been a teaser to the next book rather than a whole book. While not a waste of my time, it didn't provide anything to push the series further. It's bad enough that HBO changed all of the characters and plot. This book lacked the depth the others had. Get it to understand more about the history of the characters rather than pushing the envelope of the series.

    At 14, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends - until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

    Jeanie Jenkins says: "Fantastic Prequel/Sequel to the Dark Hunter Series"
    "Great book for a Teenager"
    Overall

    It was a little different style than the rest of the Dark-Hunter books but I found myself really enjoying it. I didn't miss any of the extra scenes that are a fluent part of the others. It also explained a lot that was missing in the details from the rest of the books. Glad I waited until AFTER Dream Warrior (Dream-Hunter Series) to listen to this one otherwise it would have messed up a few things in the sequences.

    I can't wait for the next in the series.

    While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies - which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race. To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters. But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra.

    A User says: "Narrator is TERRIBLE"
    "Good Book - Bad Reading"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book but after going through the whole series I expect certain names and other words to be said the same way. They really needed to stick with a single narrator and not have a few different ones. His rendition of women was horrible.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Would have preferred another narrator"
    Overall

    The book itself was very good but the audio editing was horrible. I think I would have liked it more had the narrator been better. He was very "breathy" and I didn't care for it. I'll have to think about if I want to continue the series in audible format or paperback.

    Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.

    Josaphine says: "Yumm!"
    "The best of the series!"
    Overall

    It was worth the build up from the previous books (some of which are not in audio format and one that was abridged and you should get the book). The narration could have been a little better but the book more than made up for it. I absolutely loved this one!

    After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a terrifying glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the danger as injury-induced imaginings. In a desperate effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorist team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton - the sweet girl next door who has grown into a remarkable woman.

    And I LOVED this book. I recommend it to anyone that wants a great romance with a slice of drama and a piece of suspense.

    Tracker must rescue kidnapped heiress Ari Blake and deliver her safely to the Hell's Eight compound - by any means necessary. Turns out that includes marrying her, if he means to escort her and her infant daughter across the Texas Territory. Tracker hadn't bargained on a wife - especially such a fair, blue-eyed beauty. But the erotic pleasures of the marriage bed more than make up for the surprise....

    I thought I preferred Sam's story but this one was even better. It was very loving and included all of the aspects you expect from one of Hell Eight. I can't wait for the next one!

    He is an expert with the latest technology...a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives.

    Overall

    I really like the series and thought this one was great. I'm really getting to know the characters and trying to figure out the plot twists as they the story unfolds. This series is keeping me busy and will continue for at least a few more months with as many as they have.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Glad I stuck with it"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed Part 1 but found the next few to be a little slow. However, things started to pick up in Part 6 and didn't stop. I appreciated the narration and the writing style.
