    Anna Strong is trained for anything-until she's attacked one night, only to awaken in a dark world that exists between the living and the dead. Here, Anna struggles with her love for the two men who inhabit the realms of each: Max, a human DEA agent, and Avery, a Night Watcher who joins Anna in pursuit of the vampire who changed her life. Now, as her two worlds collide, fate plunges Anna into the ultimate battle between good and evil - where survival is not just for the living.

    Story

    This is a fun book that caught my attention right away. I like the heroine and her devotion to her friends. The plot is strong and the story had a lot of action. Some of Anna's internal dialogue was a little grating and simplistic. The story would have been just as good without it. I like the mysterious voice that lends a hand and never reveals himself. It makes me look forward to the next book. I have to admit to being completely duped as to who the villian turned out to be and that doesn't happen to me very often. I have already purchased the next book.

    In The Lightkeepers, we follow Miranda, a nature photographer who travels to the Farallon Islands, an exotic and dangerous archipelago off the coast of California, for a one-year residency capturing the landscape. Her only companions are the scientists studying there, odd and quirky refugees from the mainland living in rustic conditions; they document the fish populations around the island, the bold trio of sharks called the Sisters that hunt the surrounding waters, and the overwhelming bird population....

    First rule of thievery: Don't be a hero. When Eli broke the rules and saved the Council Kingdoms, he thought he knew the price, but resuming his place as the Shepherdess' favorite isn't as simple as bowing his head. Now that she has her darling back, Benehime is setting in motion a plan that could destroy everything she was created to protect, and even Eli's charm might not be enough to stop her.

    I loved every word of this book. It jumps right into the story and has an abundance of fantastic characters. There is no unnecessary wordy imagery, yet every scene was vividly portrayed. I'm so glad that I didn't read thus as soon as it came out. I'm jumping right into book 2 and look forward to the last book of the trilogy this winter.

    I listened to this book on audibles. The narrator was excellent. He never made a mistake and performed a huge cast with perfection. There was a beautiful performance of a crucial song intertwined throughout the book. It was a perfect ending to a perfect book.

    Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

    Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another.

    1946: World War II has ended and all over the world, young women are beginning to fulfill the promises made to the men they wed in wartime. In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other war brides on an extraordinary voyage to England - aboard HMS Victoria, which still carries not just arms and aircraft but a thousand naval officers. Rules are strictly enforced, from the aircraft carrier’s captain down to the lowliest young deckhand. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined despite the Navy’s ironclad sanctions.

    This boom kept me riveted from start to finish. 650 Australian brides are to travel on an airline carrier to meet their husbands after the end if the war. The story is told from 7 different perspectives each as intriguing as the last. The whole concept unbelievable yet based on real events. Moyes is a brilliant author and I love everything of hers I have read to date.

    This is a moving story told by two sisters that survived the German occupation during WWII. Great story but the narration dragged a little and the author used repetitive imagery that could have been edited out. I recommend it!

    Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

    If you like fiery, strong spirited heroines that are not afraid to stray from the conventional, you will like this book.

    If you like brooding, arrogant, pig headed heroes with a hidden broken core needing repair from a clever female who can disguise her interventions, you will like this story.

    If you can recognize the brilliance of Kate Reading's flawless narration, you will like this story.

    Personally I adored it all!
