Ryan & Julian's story. Julian is one of Mary's beautiful but doesn't know it characters. So much fun to read.
Richard Kadrey has an impressive imagination, and his worlds are very well thought out.
A tattooed man, and a blind demon hunter team up to take a book back from hell, and well all hell breaks loose. Once you get past the strangeness of the first chapter (only 8:44 minutes) the story unfolds nicely. Our hero, his best friend, and a princess from another dimension/world walk willingly into hell, just for our pleasure.
Austin has a job he loves, and a chance to verify the existence of Lee wine, that would set his career for life, but death has a way of derailing his plans, and love seems to crawl into his heart by accident.
As I said in the headline - this story is my all around favorite JL book. All his books are exceptional, but this one touches me deeply - and I really can't tell you exactly why.
Unlike a previous reviewer, I did not feel that Syren Rua sounded like Hannibal Lector. Syren is a complicated character, and I feel that Renard Pasquale did a great job of bringing him to life. Some parts of the story were a little hard to take, but you cheer for Syren in the end. I liked the story and the narration.
After the abysmal character of Gabe in book 1, I was somewhat hesitant to get the rest of the series, but Sinner. Savior redeemed the series for me. Pablo & Shane are a great pairing. And Renard Pasquale does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.
No - really could not get behind Gabe being such a wishy washy, double standards, over reacting a**.
I would recommend the series, but not the first book.
Renard Pasquale's performance for this and all the rest of the series is outstanding!
Angel's first confrontation with his Uncle
Stick with it the books get better
Curses, Satanists, dead bodies, marriages and a pregnancy. Just about everything but the kitchen sink happens to Adrien this go-around.
Not my favorite of the Adrien English series, but every book is a great read/listen. You cannot go wrong with Josh Lanyon.
Can a change of venue stop a case of writers block? Adrien sure hopes so, but the first thing that greets him at his ranch is a dead body, that then disappears. The local police think he's a over excitable fellow, there are strangers on his land, saying that he gave them permission to dig there, his property caretaker is nowhere to be found, there is cannabis growing in his hills, and stories of ancient guardians seeking vengeance. After an accident finds him waking up in the hospital, Jake's there to help him uncover the truth and get to the bottom of it all. But who can write with all these distractions?
Adrien English wants to write mysteries not live them out, but fate has decided that he needs to be in the middle. Friends are murdered, mayhem happens and the cops think it's Adrien himself. Detective Riordan is as straight as they come........or is he? So who can Adrien trust in finding out who really killed his friends, and without getting killed himself?
In this alternate reality, for certain people, books can tell the secrets of who has read, owned, and written them. Collin Bliss is one of the people who knows what books have to say. As a book hunter, he expects to have a year of field work in England when he accepts an exchange position with the Museum of the Literary Occult. Unfortunately, he's stuck behind a desk all day. Given the chance to use his talent, he takes a side job that the Museum would rather he didn't. Septimus Marx is challenged with stopping Collin from finding the book he seeks, by means fair or foul. Can love find it's way, can events be changed so that the world doesn't end?
.....................Of course, but it's a close thing.
Kit Holmes is a writer stuck in a rut, and being put out to pasture by his publishing house, while XJ Moriarity is a best selling writer on the uphill climb to fame, they meet (again) at a writers retreat in the back woods of California. Unfortunately for Kit, he stumbles upon a dead body before he even checks in. All eyes turn on him, and the body count rises.
When I first read this book, I did not like Kit. His was the only lead character from Josh Lanyon that I didn't find charming. All that has changed now that I have heard Kevin R. Free narrate him. What in reading seemed to me as whining, comes across as acerbic and self-depreciating (as Josh intended) when spoken.
