    Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant. Can Alexia determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria?

    GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead - or to whom.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    cut the sex, the book is more than 1/2 sex, it just goes on... and on... so I fast forward past it.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    he is good.


    Do you think Viper Game needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    with all the sex, we did not get the whole story. what happens to the kids?


    Any additional comments?

    rated xxx. sorry but true.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the Grandpa. I think he is more than we know.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    Grandpa...lol I just loved him


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when at the end she finds out she is not like the rest ... and did not remember her turning, and they did. that got me...she did not die.

    What did you like best about Vampire Shift? What did you like least?

    story line was good. but took to long time to get there. more than 3/4 of book is dragged out bla-bla. then we get to the good part and it is over. the end. the narrator dragged it out. I went for the kindle.


    Would you recommend Vampire Shift to your friends? Why or why not?

    no. they would put it down before the half way mark.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the reading pace of her voice was so slow. like she was reading is cold.


    Was Vampire Shift worth the listening time?

    no, wish it was. the story line is good.


    Any additional comments?

    if I was given the 2nd book I would try it.

    Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law's death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana. Unfortunately, death doesn't slow down Helena one bit. DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into - especially as it seems someone wants her dead.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    yes, but if I was reading this I would flip fast threw the first half. the second half was great. and made the book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    take parts of the first half out.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    she is a good reader. her voice is easy to sit back and enjoy.


    Did Trouble in Mudbug inspire you to do anything?

    laughed a lot in the end. the mother-in-law is priceless.

    Recovering witch Garnet Lacey owns Wisconsin's premier occult bookstore. And a fringe benefit of the job is getting customers like Sebastian Von Traum - piercing brown eyes, a sexy accent, and a killer body. The only thing missing is an aura. Which means he's dead. And that means trouble - something Garnet's a sucker for....

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

    if the story line did something. so boring. I just kept turning it off. at the second part one hour into it, I could not take it any more and just quit it.


    Has Nightlife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no.

    he has a good voice.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment. anger, that I did not stop sooner.

    Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

To escape the townspeople’s wrath, she and her friends embark on a wild road trip to DeMyse. Though this sparkling desert oasis is full of luxuries and amusements, it feels like a prison to Lex.

    Lex, a teenage Grim Reaper, has the power to damn souls - and it’s getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead - sort of. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds. Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it.
