    The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity - and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right?

    Story

    I love the genre, but this fell flat. Attempts at humor with chapter title/sayings weren't clever or funny. Overall just a weak story.

    Performance - really? A narrator who can't pronounce 'wan' or 'curarae'?

    Disappointing.

    After avenging himself on the mythical monster that killed his sister, Kal Hakela is back at the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation. But, with only a few months left on his contract, he's tempted to retire along with his new love, former MI-7 agent Jeanie. When a friend and former BSI agent in San Francisco kills himself, he leaves Kal a clue, one he cannot ignore. The city is full of bad memories for Kal. In his last mission there, he killed a deranged serial rapist who used magic to murder his victims.

    Wish the narrator had looked up how to pronounce Sidhe. It really detracted from the book every time he said it incorrectly.

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.

    Story

    I so wanted to like this from the description; big fan of Zombie books. But minimal character development and oh the tired retread encounters of groups of survivors. I could barely finish. I usually don't want my books to end but with this one I increased the playback speed just to get through it.

    What happens when The Firm meets Anita Blake? You get the Halls of Power - our modern world, but twisted. Law, finance, the military, and politics are under the sway of long-lived vampires, werewolves, and the elven Alfar. Humans make the best of rule by “the Spooks”, and contend among themselves to affiliate with the powers-that-be, in order to avoid becoming their prey. Very loyal humans are rewarded with power over other women and men. Very lucky humans are selected to join the vampires.

    Boring. Finished to see if it got better, but then suddenly it ended. Main story line was wrapped up but fundamental questions went unanswered. Not a good read for fans of urban fantasy.

    Jane, a shapeshifting vampire-hunter-for-hire, crosses paths with a stranger who has arrived in New Orleans, enlisted to hunt vampires who have gone insane - or so he says.

    Shows what a really good author can do with the vampire-hunter concept. I'm a big fan of the early Anita Blake books and I really think these are so much better. Whole world she has created is more realistic, while still being a fantasy. And Beast is such a great character!

    In Last Breath, the rain brought a new and dire threat to Morganville and its vampires...their ancient enemies, the draug. Now, the vampires are fighting a losing war, and it will fall to the residents of the Glass House - Michael, Eve, Shane, and Claire - to take the fight to an enemy who threatens to destroy the town, forever. Lovers of Morganville, rejoice: Black Dawn takes the intrigue, romance, and nail-biting suspense of the series to its highest level yet.

    Story

    Yes, we all hate change, but as we are told the previous narrator wasn't available. I had just listened to the previous three books so I did notice the difference... briefly. But Angela did just as good a job as Cynthia, just a bit different. Nothing bad about the narration at all.

    Come on folks, its not like we're talking about Jim Dale sorts of narrators with tons of unique voices here... with either of them.

    My favorite book out of the last 4 in the series.
