    A clandestine race of half-dragon, half-humans known as dragon-shifters lives among us. Bastian, leader of the Nightfury dragon clan, is sworn to protect humankind at all costs. For him, honor and duty always come first. When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die. Myst, the woman given into his care, is the most extraordinary he’s ever met, and though he can’t bear the thought of harming her, he is bound by duty.

    I love this genre and have read many, many books along the same lines, but this was awful. It could not work out if it was fantasy, erotic or romatic. Full of cringe worthy scenes.
    Please do not waste your time or money. Wish I had not

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Such an original idea, very well put together and delivered.

    This series reminds me to Harry Potter and Twilight as in its ability to appeal to young adults and older alike.

    Very enjoyable and a worrying view of human nature

    Bounty hunter Morgan Bailey is still recouping from her latest vampire kill when she receives a new assignment: hunt down the sunwalker who stole a priceless amulet from a mysterious millionaire. Sunwalkers - vampires who are immune to sunlight - are notoriously difficult to find, let alone kill, but Morgan’s not worried. She’s never met a vampire she couldn’t dust. But when this particular sunwalker comes looking for her…well, all bets are off.

    Story

    I purchased this free with a credit needing something for a long journey. Really interesting twist in the vampire genre with an even more interesting twist.

    Alrerady put book 2 in my wish list.

    Wont give the twist away but story set around young woman being attached and bitten, she is the only Human not to turn but instead to gain a few useful skills. She decides to take revenge on the whole vampire race by becoming a hunter. Her best friend is a fortune teller and the super hot friends brother is something?

    She is commissioned to execute a sunwalker (thought to be a Vampire who could live in the sun) everyone tyhinks they are a myth. This story takes you though her journey to work through myth and truth and if true how she will find him?? I cannot tell you anyome without ruining it for you!!!

    My only moan is that I like a narrator who brings her characters to life with their own voices and accents. There is ver little change in Emily Sutton-Smiths narrative : (

    Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator - a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim. Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

    Throughout the entire series I could not help thinking at 40ish this series was too young for me, then all at once something would happen and I was hooked again.

    I would not say it was my favourite paranormal series off all time but was compelled to buy all books in the series to find out what happens and very pleased I did.

    Well worth a listen, a very different take on the whole genre

    Lacey Terwilligers shock and humiliation over her husband’s philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass email to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town, a media punch line, and the defendant in Mike's defamation lawsuit.

    I have read and loved all of Molly's books. It took me a while to read this one as it it did not fall into the paranormal fantasy genre, but so pleased i did eventually and sooo pleased.

    When I fould them on Audio books I could not believe they could be improved, but the have been by Amanda Ronconi. It is as if she is really living the story they way she puts a whole new dimension to the script. I will be checking out all her other narrations now

    I love all things vampire, werewolf etc so enjoy reading peoples reviews. Several people stated that this could be enjoyed by teenagers and adults alike. I disagree, whilst I really enjoyed the series and there are some heavier issues detailed it is aimed at teenagers or young adults.

    I have really enjoyed the whole series, very different to my usual genre.
    Whilst the narrator is really good with this story line I found some of his characters voices very similar so could sometimes be confusing on which character was talking.
    Unlike the other books in this series, this books chapters jumped backwards and forwards in time. I found this confusing and twice had to check I did not have the shuffle advice turned on.

    All in all a good book and story

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Perfect Blood to be better than the print version?

    Yes, some narrators that just give a book another dimension


    What other book might you compare A Perfect Blood to and why?

    There are some many different aspects to this story line it is difficult to compare it has it all, witches, vampires, fairies and demons.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Bringing the characters to life for me


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    On Hallowed ground comes love, friendship and survival

To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Is it a rogue-vampire, shapechanger, or witch? Or something else magical?

    What did you love best about Raven Cursed?

    This series just gets better and better, I cannot wait for the next instalment. I have listened to all these books rather than reading but I cannot imagine it could get much better. I love the way Khristine makes the characters come alive.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane for being sassy, brave and believing in herself


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    To hard to choose


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listened to it in one sitting and was then depressed it was over
