    Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy: cool, calm, emotionless... at least on the surface. Inside, she’s fighting a desperate battle to save her son and escape the vicious cold of the PsyNet. Yet when escape comes, it leads not to safety but to the lethal danger of a sniper’s embrace.

    Story

    While "Slave to Sensation" will always be my favorite, this one come in a close second and probably the best in Psy-Changeling relations. Ashaya was the first one who seemed strong enough and ready for what was happening with Dorian.

    I am totally loving how each new character is weaved into the lives and drama of DarkRiver and SnowDancer packs.

    Ever since she discovered that she's pregnant, Elena Michaels has been on edge. After all, she's never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who's given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough---only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London's underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers, unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.

    Story

    I love listening to series. The only thing that makes it trying is narrators changing or even staying the same when they should change. By this book it was clear, Aasne Vigesaa is Elena and even the best Clay. Nell Canning is Aunt Ruth, and Laural Merlington is Paige Winterbourne. She just sounds too "wholesome" to give me the feeling I get from Elena.

    Other than that, the story is excellent. Love the wolves!!

    Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind - and none of the heart. Born a Psy, Sascha Duncan must hide the emotions that mark her as flawed. But a passionate Changeling will tempt her to reveal everything - and risk her very soul.

    Story

    When I first came across this series, I looked at the cover and thought "2012 Harlequin". The description was just enough to make me take the chance and I'm glad I did. My only complaint: With all the beauty she describes of people with genetic backgrounds from all over the world, the covers look like updated Harlequin novels with the only indication that they're meant to be the main characters being hair color and tattoos. *Shrug*

    Since this was my first Psy-Changeling novel of any kind, it was a learning experience and really a good read. Sascha and Lucas' interactions are priceless from beginning to end. The plot weaving around them had me totally looking forward to book number 2.

    Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy-dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor's closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of a catastrophic mental fracture.

    Story

    This being the 8th installation of the Psy-Changeling series, I thought I'd gotten a handle on what "But he/she was Psy" meant. This time I was totally lost. This time, the actual drama around the love story was more interesting than the love story. They went from strangers to 60 in no time flat. They totally skipped into the realm of love and possession and the "Psy" issues they had to work around never realy connected. I actually found myself looking forward to other characters coming into play because I just couldn't get into the two of them.

    Having said that, I believe they will be very useful in the next books. I'm sure their skills wil be very interesting put to use to help the others. Perhaps, we'll learn more about Max's father and get a better understanding of him.

    What happened with the step-mother's voice this time around? Her nasaly midwestern whine made her-her! I love this series. I highly recommend listening from the start.

    Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

    Story

    This story was a bit harder to get into because the time travel thing is such a slippery slope. I admit to being terribly let down by the ending. I guess after loving the books before, like everyone else, I'd come to look for the happy ending. It left me pondering for a long time after I finished it. I suppose in vampire-world, this direction was inevitable. I'll wait a bit before reading the next one.

    This boldly contemporary love story combines sex and seriousness, physical lust and spiritual longing. Raymond and Hannah hook up at a party; a one-night stand expands into a weeklong passionate and surprisingly deep love affair. Then Hannah leaves for a year in Jerusalem. With six thousand miles separating their bodies, the energy of love and lust must be sublimated to the written word.

    Michelle says: "Good love story not romantic story"
    "Good story but..."
    Overall

    After a while I got so wrapped up in the "Jewishness" as she repeatedly put it, I totally forgot about the love story.

    In between running her vampire nightclub and hunting down the perfect pair of shoes, Betsy learns her long-lost half-sister Laura is actually the spawn of Satan. Complicating matters, prophesy states that the devil's offspring and the queen of the vampires are destined to rule the world together.

    While I could have gone "sitcom" longer with the "Betsy hates Sinc-lair" storyline, I am totally enjoying this series. FUNNY!!

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

    Vanessa says: "Great Concept / Annoying Character"
    "Just what I was looking for!"
    Overall

    I wanted funny. I wanted vampires. I got it. I'm always fascinated by the various takes on vampires and this one is too cute. I was immediately hooked. I haven't heard the radio in my car since I bought this one. I'm excited to hear the rest but afraid to finish them too soon.
