    In "Shades of Gray" by Katie MacAlister, Noelle is a Guardian: a demon-wrangler, imp-banisher, and all-round secret protector of humans from the Otherworld. In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Jessica Sims's "Out With a Fang" features Ruby Sommers, a lonely were-jaguar who signs up for a blind date through the paranormal dating agency Midnight Liaisons.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Undead in My Bed to be better than the print version?

    I would consider the second and third stories to be better, because the narrators do an excellent job. The first one was horrible. or maybe it was the writing. Probably mostly the writing, but the narrator didn't help.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Story by Jessica Sims (3rd Story), with the Molly Harper's (2nd Story) a close second.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The third story in it's entirety.


    If you could rename The Undead in My Bed, what would you call it?

    Hot Vamps.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't give up on the book because the first story/narration sucks. The other two stories are worth a credit on thier own!

    Story
    (2948)

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to City of Bones the most enjoyable?

    Clary and Jace's relationship, and also Clary and Simon. The interactions made me laugh aloud at some parts. Oh teenagers. Also, the made up world they interacted in was well executed. I've been reading a lot of supernatural lit lately, and sometimes it's like wait, really, that's your explanation of this world and what's going on in it? A little of it goes into a lot of detail but I still enjoyed it and thought the world was well fleshed out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clary was very easy to identify with. And Jace was a lovable asshole. And Simon was lovably clueless. And Alec was lovably gay and defensive. I pretty much loved everyone.


    Have you listened to any of Ari Graynor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listed to Ari Graynor before and would not go seeking other narrations by her. She did alright and I liked her voice alright but sometimes the charaters were hard to distinguish between and also sometimes when she said something and the situation in the story developed I actively thought oh I would have emphasized the word differently to get that point across...or whatever. It was a little distracting, but I've heard worse.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I definitely laughed, and may have teared, I don't remember. I loved it. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series, but I'm a little leery as looking ahead it seems the narrators change up a bit I'm worried that might affect my listening enjoyment some. While I didn't love Ari Graynor I'm used to it and hope it doesn't get worse.


    Any additional comments?

    Once I figured out that Jace and Clary were supposed to be brother and sister I was like OMG I immediately need to read on to find out if it's somehow not true and they can be together and not incestuous. Simon's cute and solid but come on, he obviously can't compete with Jace. My reaction to this book makes me feel like a teenager again, which I am definitely not. But in a good way. :)
