    Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a 17-year-old human girl, he can’t seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he’s entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prizefighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin?

    The narrator was great, made a terrible, ridiculous story bearable enough to finish. The only reason I did finish it is to see if it was redeemable in any way and to be able to give a whole and honest opinion.


    Has Divergent turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Not at all. The genre isnt the problem. Its convoluted stories trying to jump onto a popular trend in fiction.


    Any additional comments?

    the idea and premise of the story could of been amazing...

    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    What did you love best about A Perfect Blood?

    Best book in the series so far. I was truly taken for a ride!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenks! His expletives!


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    As with every Marguerite Gavin performance, she did a great job. I know what character is talking just by hearing her different voices for them and none are annoying or unsuited to the character. Gavin is an amazing voice talent. Ill listen to anything the woman reads!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are several emotionally climatic moments in this book, I wont ruin it for you, just listen!


    Any additional comments?

    I HIGHLY recommend Kim Harrison's Hollows series and her books written under the name Dawn Cook (also available on audible)

    She rocks my literary world!

    During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human. Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures that are terrifying, beautiful, and deadly — all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

    LeSLiE says: "Cool Cover, Great Story!"
    "A New England version of Sookie!"
    Overall

    This was a fun listen. Good narrator that did the story and characters justice. If Charlaine Harris, Seanan McGuire and Kimberly Frost had a book baby it would be Tempest Rising.
    Im from the Northern East coast of the US and I can tell you that Peeler paints and accurate picture of a small coastal New England town.
    I cant wait to hear the next book in the series.

    For freewheeling ghost hunter Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. An agent for the Church of Real Truth, she investigates claims of harassment by the undead. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

    The Book Nympho says: "FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC"
    "Some of the best storytelling ever read/heard"
    Overall

    I ordered the first book in this series,Unholy Ghosts a few days ago and LOVED it. I couldnt wait the 3 days for my credits to renew to order Unholy Magic so I just payed for it. It was worth it. Stacia Kane Knows how to write a complex character that is full of flaws that you'll still cheer for and care about. It was a great story too. Stacia Kane created a dirty urban world so well I have to believe that she had her fair share of time on the streets or at least the street fringe. The main character, Chess has a drug problem, the same one I spent 13 years in and she writes the mind, thoughts and deeds of an addict with brutal truth. It was hard for me to read some parts without crying or cringing over memories that mirrored what the main character was going through. Oh and the author really knows her punk rock. This series is going to be amazing. If you like Poppy Z. Brite you'll like this. There is finally some awesome urban fantasy to read again!

    Someone wants Marla Mason dead. Usually that's not news. As chief sorcerer of Felport, someone always wants her dead. But this time she's the target of a renegade assassin who specializes in killing his victims over days, months, or even years. Not to mention a mysterious knife-wielding killer in black who pops up in the most unexpected places.

    T.A. Pratt has a wonderful imagination, Ive just finished the fourth book of this series and I must say, its been one heck of a ride. Great stories, the evolution of the characters was fascinating to watch. The magical world hes created is rich in detail and so interesting! After this book, read Death Reign then Spell Games. This series is the best urban fantasy Ive read, by far.

    Sorcerer Marla Mason, small-time guardian of the city of Felport, has a big problem. A rival is preparing a powerful spell that could end Marla's life - and, even worse, wreck her city. Marla's only chance of survival is to boost her powers with the Cornerstone, a magical artifact hidden somewhere in San Francisco. But when she arrives there, Marla finds that the quest isn't going to be quite as cut-and-dried as she expected...

    An epic saga of love, fate and betrayal.

    Victoria has chosen career over love, but starts to question this decision when she finds herself working at a remote weather research station on a tiny island off the coast of Norway. In this world of midnight sunshine, the Old Gods still watch the affairs of humanity - one of them has become fixated on Victoria, certain that she is the reincarnation of a woman he fell in love with over a thousand years before.

    Oren Eini says: "Bad ending"
    "Wish I could find more stories like this one!"
    Overall

    At first, I hated the main character therefore I wasent enjoying this book so much but It really became good. The writer captures the personalities of the old norse gods perfectly and weaves a tale involving their mythology and our world. Edwina Wren reads this with perfect emotion and pace. She has a brilliant norwegian accent. If you like Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs or even Neil Gaiman or if you enjoy romance novels you'll want to hear this one. I do not like romance novels and I still loved it. Now my only problem is finding another book like this one!
