She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend. When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano-the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea's former lover-die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate.

    Gunmetal Magic is a fun journey. Andrea Nash is hired to investigate some pack deaths. To investigate the murders, Nash must interact with Raphael. Some of the truly great characters in this series such as Barabas, Roman, and Aunt B also return. If you like other books by these writers, you will like this book, but I do not suggest starting the series with this book. You should read the Kate Daniel's series first to get full enjoyment out of this book. Renée Raudman is still great.

    When two cannibalistic, gravely wounded men stagger into the town of Gehenna, all hell breaks loose. Infamous outlaw Mad Dog McCall, stuck in the city jail, must fight for his life to escape. The lonely, intelligent, and snarky Karen must make horrific sacrifices to survive the night against the growing army of the dead. Together they set upon a journey of biblical proportions, fighting against the living and the infected, hoping against hope to find a safe haven in the middle of Hell. The Old West can't fathom the zombie hoard that is about to consume it.

    There is nothing new in this trilogy. Zombies meet a bunch of Old West stereotypes in three short stories. Even though there is nothing new here, it is still a fun listen. Even though this trilogy doesn't provide a new take on the zombie folklore, this is still an entertaining listen. Listen to it for what it is and enjoy it.

    Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and dissected by three rivers, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an idyllic city. It's quiet, the traffic is nonexistent, and floating down the Allegheny River on a boat is peaceful and serene. It's perfect...as long as you can ignore the mindless monstrosities roaming the streets, vampires ruling the night, and the insane, power-hungry human survivors. Mankind has devolved, mutating into mindless horrors. Only weeks ago, they built skyscrapers and traveled to space.

    I love this series for one very similar reason. This series takes eccentric secondary characters and repositions them as the primary characters of this apocalyptic novel. I always love the eccentric secondary characters; so, I was thrilled to find a series that stars them. While Brant narrative isn't as brilliant as Shaun of the Dead, it is still a fun and short listen. The narrator is passable but runs out of believable new voices toward the middle of the novel.

    Life isn't kind to Lance York. A full-time job has eluded him for years, his wife loathes the sight of him, his bank accounts are empty, and his wealthy father-in-law revels in his failures. After he lunges in front of a car to save a sick and disoriented woman, Lance awakens in a quarantined hospital. A devastating plague is spreading worldwide, driving those infected with it insane. Their bodies begin to mutate into horrors that have haunted mankind's nightmares for centuries.

    While this book doesn't really present anything new as far as apocalyptic books go, the main characters are rich and fully developed. In addition instead of including preppers as eccentric side characters, this book explores the nature of the survivalist or prepper mentality. Specifically, this book tries to incorporate how survivalists or preppers might fair in an apocalyptic USA. It is an interesting Naziesque twist. The narrator does a passable job.

    Gin Blanco is hard-nosed, sexy, and lethal. Nicknamed "The Spider," she's a stone elemental assassin who brings her unique mix of magic and tact to every assignment, no matter the target. There's a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name "Burn" sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight…

    Gin and the crew are back and adding members again. Pretty soon all of Southtown will be part of Gin's family. This is a hilarious and entertaining series. If you like female bad asses who have a very practical moral code and comfort food, you will like this series. I hope we see a Spider Cookbook someday. I also find it hilarious how often Gin thinks people have read her mind. If anyone assumed that much non-verbal communication in real life, s/he would be constantly frustrated by misunderstandings and criminally inefficient communication.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    This is such a great series. It is full of urban fantasy, intelligence, humor, and sensible characters. I recommend this series to everyone. It is one of my favorites. Furthermore, the authors do a really good job filling in background information; so, if one is new to the series and doesn't start at Book 1, s/he will still be able to follow the plot. So glad Renee Raudman is back, because she is the voice of Kate Daniels.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I have been putting off reading/listening to this fan fiction, because I really didn't like the Twilight series. But the movie is coming out soon; so, I finally buckled and listened to this book. Just as I feared, it is pretty awful and full of two-dimensional female characters. If you are really interested in good fiction about sub/dom relationships, listen to 'The Dominatrix' by Emma Allan. It is a much better book.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Honestly, can anyone get enough Trent? The answer is no. Thank goodness Kim Harrison agrees. Kim Harrison's tomato-fearful world is back in gloriously full description which enables the reader/listen to really empathize with Rachel Mariana Morgan. Great job to writer and narrator.

    Thirteen is the next book in Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. It is billed as the last book in this series. After a listen, it is clear why. Armstrong does a great job wrapping up the series and giving all the characters an end-some happy, some not. This is a strong addition to a wonderful series. NOTE: This series was turned into a TV show in 2013.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    What would happen if a large portion of the Earth’s population died due to a deadly virus spread through genetically modified tomatoes? Read this book to find out. Kim Harrison has built an intriguing world of fiction, and Marguerite Gavin has given it life. If you like paranormal stories, you will enjoy this book.
