    In general, Karou has managed to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she's a 17-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to a monstrous creature who is the closest thing she has to family. Raised half in our world, half in 'Elsewhere', she has never understood Brimstone's dark work - buying teeth from hunters and murderers - nor how she came into his keeping. She is a secret even to herself, plagued by the sensation that she isn't whole.

    I really liked the premise for this book. The mystery of the teeth and why Karous is running the mysterious errands is enough to keep you hooked but ultimately I didn't....



    SPOILER



    ... buy into the chemistry between Karou and Akiva. There just wasn't enough to it and I found that I didn't care enough about their relationship. I would also have loved to hear more about Karou's other family but there just wasn't enough details on this either.

    I really liked Karou as a character, she was interesting and brave but otherwise I don't know if I will bother with the next book. This book just didn't draw me in enough.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta's paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more is at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can't stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive.

    In a future world under attack from the undead, the powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing human liars and banishing the wicked dead.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

    I can't wait for Audible to get the rest of this series. It is addictive reading, funny and great characters.

    The narrator does a great job but I found the female voices a little difficult to listen to at times, I think that would be my only critisim of this book.

    Hurry up Audible!

    Story

    I really love this series, I was left desperately wanting more after the last book and this one totally met my expectations. The level of detail is incredible, it is just amazing to think that the author came up with every detail in the book! I love the different myths and the stories, they really make the book so interesting. These characters are so well developed and although the language can be a little cheesy at times I just love them all. I adore the love triangle between the two brothers and Kelsey and can’t even imagine what will happen in the end. The narrator does a great job also.

    My only criticism with the book is:

    1. Ren's turnaround on Kelsey. At the end of the last book he couldn't stand to be near to her and then within a few chapters he is falling in love with her again?! I just couldn't believe it. It was all too easy and convenient.

    2. Kishan was the total bad boy character, he and Kelsey had such great chemistry (the scene in the pool anyone?!) but he was so boring in this book. He lost all his personality and wasn't interesting at all. I find Ren a little too perfect (Mr Superman) but I really disliked what happened to Kishan in this book.

    Oh and if I have to hear Kelsey say "the man I love" one more time I think I will scream!
