    Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization - and this person wants her dead.

    Very well-written and entertaining. First half is more of a mystery, establishes the alternate world history and second half is very funny as the story and the main character settle in. Narrator took a little getting used to at the beginning with the slightly unusual cadence but I got used to it quickly and her performance was exceptional. There was a scene with dentists in the second half that made me laugh out loud and I was listening on the subway at the time. Looking forward to more stories from O'Malley and will check out other books narrated by Duerden.

    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    Great series with well-developed characters. Enjoying the evolution of Jane and Beast's relationship, especially as more of their past is revealed and the background of Native American mythology adds depth. I've listened to Khristine Hvam narrate other books (Cast series by Michelle Sagara) and she always does a great job giving different characters distinct voices. One minor criticism is that her grasp of European accents isn't great but overall, a very good performance.
