    Recently named the world's chief clairvoyant, Cassandra Palmer still has a thorn in her side. As long as Cassie and a certain master vampire---the sizzling-hot Mircea---are magically bound to each other, her life will never be her own. The spell that binds them can only be broken with an incantation found in the Codex Merlini, an ancient grimoire. The Codex's location has been lost in the present day, so Cassie will have to seek it out in the only place it can still be found---the past.

    decembergrit says: "Really good series"
    "Like the stories--hate the narrator"
    Overall

    I like the series other than the fact that the heroine is as dumb as a box of rocks, it gets tiresome after a while. I would recommend the stories but caution as strongly as possible to be prepared for some of the most mangled pronunciations a narrator has ever uttered. I like the stories enough to try to ignore it, bad luck for us this narrator does most of the authors I like so I am getting better at finding her less maddening.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Her mother called it a gift. But for Caitlyn O’Connell, the voices in her head are a curse, dooming her career, her marriage, and her sobriety. Now the former cop scrapes by as a private investigator, counting down the minutes until happy hour. But when her sexy former partner (and estranged ex-husband) appeals to her for help with a bizarre murder case, Cait can’t say no - to the crime or the man.

    The last thing Detective Sam Pierce wants is to revisit the past. But the very secret that doomed his marriage to Cait may be the key to cracking this case.

Today, thanks to a farewell ritual gone awry, Lela is standing in paradise, looking upon a vast gated city in the distance - hell. No one willingly walks through the Suicide Gates, into a place smothered in darkness and infested with depraved creatures. But Lela isn’t just anyone - she’s determined to save her best friend’s soul, even if it means sacrificing her eternal afterlife. As Lela struggles to find Nadia, she’s captured by the Guards, enormous, not-quite-human creatures that patrol the dark city’s endless streets.

    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.
