    Stephanie Harrington had always expected to be a forest ranger on her homeworld of Meyerdahl until her parents relocated to the frontier planet of Sphinx in the far distant Star Kingdom of Manticore. It should have been the perfect new home - a virgin wilderness full of new species of every sort, just waiting to be discovered. But Sphinx is a far more dangerous place than ultra-civilized Meyerdahl, and Stephanie's explorations come to a sudden halt when her parents lay down the law: no trips into the bush without adult supervision!

    The Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare. Sixteen years have passed since the Heterodyne Boys, benevolent adventurers and inventors, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Today, Europe is ruled by the Sparks, dynasties of mad scientists ruling over - and terrorizing - the hapless population with their bizarre inventions and unchecked power, while the downtrodden dream of the Heterodynes’ return. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, a pretty, young student named Agatha Clay seems to have nothing but bad luck.

    From Charlaine Harris, the best-selling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a darker locale - populated by more strangers than friends. But then, that's how the locals prefer it. Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It' s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

    Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake's best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She's accomplished, beautiful, and she's crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong? J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things.

    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    Laurell k Hamilton can write a GREAT story. but this is not a story. there is no story line and the book needs a warning. XXXXX. if there was half of the sex and more story it would be great.


    Was Jason worth the listening time?

    NOT really.

    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Debora Geary again?

    I will try one. yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    too giddy, perky.

Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

    What did you like best about this story?

    the story over the first one?.... l like the growth of the area, travel by air? lol love the way she is doing it.


    What does Jennifer Van Dyck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    sometime when I read a book. I read to fast, to catch all of it, and must go back and reread some parts to see what I missed. that does not happen with Ms. Van Dyck.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was to long.

    can't wait for the next one... hope it comes out soon

    Together at last! The entire Wolf Lake Trilogy is now available in one place. See how it all started in Legend: Orphaned as a child, Samantha grew up into a strong, but lonely woman working on her doctorate thesis by researching the history of myths and legends. But when she uncovers an actual werewolf pack, the world of myth becomes her new reality.

    I liked the story line. the story was well thought out, characters well done. Just way to much sex. Had to get past that a lot in the first two books. less of it in the 3rd.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't want to spoil it for others, so I will just say she comes in, in the 3rd book. :) and is very sassy, and bold. loved her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When we get to know... there are wolfs real ones out there.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no. but I don't go see many movies.
