    The women at Vows - a wedding planning company in Connecticut - make it their business to create memorable events for couples sealing their bonds. And though the bonds among Parker, Emma, Mac, and Laurel may not be official, they are very real - and equally worthy of celebration.

    Mary says: "Bad Narration"
    "Wonderful Male Character"
    Overall

    After reading some of the reviews on this book, I was wary to invest in it - after all, a bad narration can ruin a good story. I was pleasantly surprised when I found no fault with the narration (no, no lisp that I could detect) and Carter (the male character) was one of the most endearing male characters I have come across in a long time. I recommend this book with no reservations whatsoever.

    Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force. Vampires are dying impossibly of disease. Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York in ruin and Raphael's Tower under siege by enemy archangels. Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York . . . and on Raphael.

    What did you love best about Archangel's Legion?

    I wasn't bored for an instant. I LOVE this series but I was actually a bit put off when I saw it was another Elena/Raphael story. I was really hoping for a story about another one of the seven so I put off buying this story. I had it in my head that I would be bored with another installment of these two, but I was very, very wrong. The story is face paced. The tension of the situation is really well done. I really like how she doesn't try to "sell" you on the bond between Elena and Raphael, she simply develops it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Archangel's Legion?

    The last 45 minutes. Without giving any spoilers, I'll just say that the additions at the end are something I'm very interested to see developed.

    When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children - neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household, both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

    Where does Oracle's Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my most enjoyed audiobooks in some time - and I generally enjoy all my audiobooks. All of the characters are likeable, and as opposed to some reviews, I did not find the heroine to be at all ungrateful or whiney. Instead, I found myself really respecting her - there were no cringe moments where you just wish the heroine would be a little smarter, a little less hysteric or more willing to stand up for herself. Also, the male lead - was so incredibly wonderful. He seems someone that is willing to learn, despite his age and power - he takes everything in and tries his best to understand how it applies to Grace, himself and their growing relationship. Just a truly enjoyable listen.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Marguerite Gavin?

    I fell in love with this series, so yes, I'd still listen, just because I'm invested in the characters, but Rachel is starting to wear on my nerves a bit. The performance was fantastic - though I was a little confused. Did Pierce have an irish accent and then not have an irish accent?


    Any additional comments?

    I've been following this series for years now, and I absolutely loved the stories and the characters. In this book, as well as the last book though, Rachel is becoming increasingly reactive and her outbursts often seem immature. I often cringed listening to her go on another rant against Trent. She dislikes him, she's conflicted about him, she thinks he's sexy - We Get It. Could she please stop reacting to this as if its shocking information every time?

Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control...

    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not that I mind when stories start off a bit slow, as the author gives details and insights in the setting, characters, environment,etc. - but this story starts immediately. I loved it! You're only 2 or 3 minutes into the book and the action has already started. You get to know the characters through their actions, instead of prolonged thoughtful monologes (again, not that I mind those). You jump in with both feet from the get go and the story stays fast paced, interesting and extremely well read. I'm really excited to have come across what I believe is going to be a fantastic new series.

    In the Ichidian Universe, The League and their ruthless assassins rule all. Expertly trained and highly valued, the League Assassins are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption. Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League - and has been hunted by them ever since.

    Overall

    I did enjoy the story, though I know when you buy one of these types of books the plot is generally predictable (I have no problem with that really), but, there are several moments when the female character becomes incredibly hard to listen to. She gets better, she redeems herself, but it can be tough getting through at some points. Great male lead.

    Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.

    Theresa says: "Another SEP Winner"
    "Not so great"
    Overall

    I also adore SEP. She always has witty lines and the dialogue between characters is often fast paced and cheeky. This book, however, lacked that. I simply could not like the characters. The narration was well done, I liked how distinct she made each voice/character. Those musical interludes drove me absolutely insane. I cannot see the purpose they served other than making me think I had hit a button on my ipod that made the audiobook skip. I still love SEP, this just wasn't her at her best. Match Me If You Can and Natural Born Charmer are both winners though.
