    For all the bodies she's encountering, you'd think beat cop Joanne Walker works in Homicide. But no, Joanne's a reluctant shaman who last saved mankind three months ago; surely she deserves more of a break! Yet, incredibly, "Armageddon, Take Two" is mere days away.

    I love the characters and idea of the story kept me interested, but the story dragged out and the endless description of the magic that's unfolding didn't really make things clear.. it manly made things more confusing. I'm not ready to give up on the series yet.

    Gabriella Ross suffered every bride's worst nightmare: a no-show groom. Now summer stretches before her with nowhere to go but home, at least until it's time to return to medical school. Determined to prove she might be down but definitely not out, she chucks all her old plans in favor of having a good time-starting with giving herself a pair of wings.

    Pretty great addition to a hot series. But I honestly recommend reading it rather then relaying on the audio to get into this series. Tantor changed narrator's this time but it still was rough getting though, what should be a hot listen. Elizabeth Hart was slightly better then the previous books narrator, she has potential (maybe) but I still had a hard time trying to just get into the story and ignore the irritation

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    "Grrrrr! Now this could be for the growl or groan I made when I finished 5th Grave Past the Light and have to wait for the next book, (I'm guessing a year) or this grr could stand for the GRRREAT! that Tony the Tiger makes. I loved this book! 5th Grave met and exceeded all of my expectations. It answered questions, made me ask more questions and twisted me all up on the inside. Each book in this series dragged me more into this world and grips me harder and harder. Daryndra Jones has created some great characters and they all impact me, good and bad. From the first time I seen the cover of First Grave on the Right posted and recommended by JR Ward on her website (The White cover with the skull sandals and scythe). I thought hmm this looks interesting. When I read the blurb, a chick named Charely Davidson who happens to be the Grim Reaper, I was sold. I've never been disappointed. I was hooked with the first few chapters. With laughter or heartbreak I've loved this series completely and I recommend to everyone who will listen. I will admit my stomach clenched over the "post-it" note on Charelys door in chapter 9, and my co-works think I'm nuts. I had a few bust out loud with laughter moments today and The GPS app with OZZY as the Voice... All I can say is "Holy Crow! I want that!" The audio book is an awesome way to get into this series. Lorelei King is a great narrator and she does an excellent job with this series.

    Five men with power tools, what more can a girl want? Includes the following stories: Kate's Crew - Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. Morgan's Surprise - If Morgan thought spilling the beans on her lust for Joe would scare him off, she couldn't have been more wrong. Kayla's Gift - For some reason, caressing the man on her table is blurring her normally crystal-clear distinction between nudity and sexuality. Devon's Pair - James is sure he's doomed to lose the man of his dreams.

    Was super excited to see Powertools is audio and I thought WOW I'll just get the all in one. NOPE doesn't work for me... Narration is good, story good but what's up with starting out last book first?!! I guess I should have just bought all of the story's separate. It wasn't horrible but chronological order would have been nice. I kept getting distracted and I've read the books... I can just image how someone who is just experiencing the Powertools series is going to feel.

    Dory is used to fighting hard and nasty. So when she wakes up in a strange scientific lab with a strange man standing over her, her first instinct is to take his head off. Luckily, the man is actually the master vampire Louis-Cesare, so he's not an easy kill. It turns out that Dory had been working with a Vampire Senate task force on the smuggling of magical items and weaponry out of Faerie when she was captured and brought to the lab.

    Story

    As much as I love the character of Dory and the story, the story left me wondering what was going on till the end. Almost wondering what the plan was here. It wasn't a complete waste, it filled out in the end. By biggest complaint! What's Up with the Cover for the audio!?! I didn't notice this till I went back and tried to re-listen and realized I bought a audio that is being sold under a different books title! Having purchased all of Karen Chance's books in audio, (because the craziness and constant action is easier to rewind then flipping back through many pages) I now have TWO audio's with Midnight's Daughter COVER!. That's right some person reused a cover photo from a previous book as THIS books cover. Not only do I have to look closely when I want to listen to which ever book and not just pay attention to the title, I don't get to see the new artwork. Maybe I'm picky or maybe Audio book listeners don't matter, but I Like my cover art!
    Now maybe all this and the spot on the 2nd part where it says this is the end of the cd to continue please put in the next disc is just a strange mistake that happens. Which I have purchased other audio's that WHERE sold on audible where the ENDING was not the same as the published book. This book was released Oct 2nd but the Audio wasn't available till Oct 30th so they had time.

    Bodyguard Celia Graves has definitely accepted her share of weird assignments, both human and supernatural. But her newest job takes the cake. Guarding a prince from terrorists and religious fundamentalists is hard enough, but it seems like the entire supernatural world is after this guy too. When she is betrayed by those she is employed to help, and everything goes horribly wrong, Celia wakes to find herself transformed. Neither human nor vampire, Celia has become an abomination-something that should not exist-and now both human and supernatural alike want her dead.

    The cover caught my eye and I took a chance. I gotta say getting past the first couple of chapters was difficult, but then the story dragged me in and I really liked it. I can't wait to get the next in the series. The narration needed some work though! I had a hard time getting into the story in the beginning because she was rather annoying, but either I just got used to her or she got better as the story continued.

    I used to murder people for money, but lately it’s become more of a survival technique. Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town anyway. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the growth of the author and the story line started out interesting. I only heard sloppy, sloppy, sloppy twice. The story seemed to flow much better then the previous books in the series. Then all the sudden it was a personality swap with the characters that we've come to know and I was at a total loss of enjoying the rest of the story. At this point I'm not even interested in a next book at all.I understand angst and drama needed to add to a story but come on... We've been through this stuff before with Donovan. Owen, what the heck happened! And Gin, how can I root for a character that is so spineless with her personal life.... And the constant calling Owen her lover, made me want to puke.


    What was most disappointing about Jennifer Estep’s story?

    That she seemed to forget her characters personalities or she choose for them to be spineless and mindless shells of what they were or could be.


    Any additional comments?

    Am I being harsh? Maybe... but after 6 books, you come to know and expect more from a story then a tough as nails assassin, moping around and questioning herself for protecting those she loves by doing the job she believes is right then crying over a man that betrays her completely. Then we are left with her hoping that time heals this man and brings him back.. WTH?!?

You: A deliciously curvy virgin who's intimately familiar with what goes bump in the night. Must not be afraid of a little tail. Prefer a woman who's open to exploring her animal nature. Interest in nighttime walks through the woods a plus. My turn-ons include protecting you from the worst the supernatural world has to offer.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The plot was thin and the main characters were completely annoying


    What was most disappointing about Jessica Sims’s story?

    that I paid for it


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No redeeming qualities! It's a first person narrative with a horrible protagonist who makes every wrong move and decision and not much of interest for the other characters. I forced myself to finish this and just got more angry!
