    Vampires have officially "come out of the coffin", and Miss Sookie can't wait for one to come her way.

    Pamela says: "That Vampire Said ...."
    "Dead Until Dark"
    Overall

    Captivating plot, without all of the gratuitous violence and shock-value sex scenes on the HBO series. Since I'm now in book #3 of the series, the writing style is getting a bit stale-- the author likes to recycle a bit--but the story is a real page-turner. Obviously (as other reviewers have pointed out) this isn't high literature, but highly entertaining and definitely worth a credit.

    Let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. These ominous words, slashed from the pages of a book of Psalms, are the last threat that the darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests.

    Overall

    This was a really enjoyable "read". It was my first romance, and I was looking for something light, but when I heard them say "Harlequin" I was like, "Oh, no!!" But I've been converted :)
    The story is really good, with plenty of twists. I love the attention to detail the author gives, since I'm an historical fiction fiend. I loved the narrator-- this one is far superior to that of the next book in the series-- and enjoyed her sometimes quirky pronunciation. I've since enjoyed the next book, Silent in the Sanctuary, and am anxiously awaiting the 3rd book that is to be released next month.

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."
    "I wish I could give this negative stars."
    Overall

    I'm sorry, but I thought this was one of the corniest books I've listened to in a long time. I liked the premise, though, so I kept listening, hoping it would get better. It didn't.
    The plot was boring and predictable. The characters were flat and cliched with no (or erratic) development. The narrator, while somewhat pleasing to listen to in her primary voice, made the male characters sound ridiculous! I won't be reading the next book... I'm glad I only paid $4!
