From the moment she arrives, however, her problems only intensify. She's being stalked, but by whom? Is he real or only a figment of her imagination?

    Melissa Mayhue you are a writer I look up to. I have enjoyed reading both books(1&2). I thought your stories are ones I will remember and want to read again. Heartwarming love story, adventure filled and the Fae's magic--how could anyone resist. I am addicted and need my next book--please say it's soon. Forgot to mention- Narrator, Elizabeth Wiley, did an excellent job. Your story became alive with her abilities.

    As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett's secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city's unearthly underworld.

    I had to get Book 3---SO HAPPY I DID--great flow of story line and new action to spice up the story. Great imagination---time well spend and I really have enjoyed the reading/ listening.

    Now for your narrator--Amy McFadden--excellent choice--you are doing a great job!

    One problem--WE NEED BOOK 4!

    When LA’s vampires, witches, and werewolves make a mess, they call Scarlett Bernard to clean it up. Her ability as a null erases all magical traces from anything — or anyone — that comes within ten feet of her, and keeps humans in the dark about the city’s paranormal activity. One night when she’s called to a grisly crime scene, Scarlett is spied by the all-too-human LAPD cop Jesse Cruz, who strikes up a deal with her: he’ll keep quiet about the supernatural underworld if she helps him crack the case. She agrees, but the city’s chief vampire, Dash, starts to suspect Scarlett is behind the murders and will reveal all she knows of his shadowy empire. Now it’ll take more than Scarlett’s unique abilities to clear her name, keep the underworld underground, and track down the real killer.

    Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness.... Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she's ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel. Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn? From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

    I took this book on a whim--I was not disappointed. The story was compelling, and well structured. Every step in the story pulls you to the next. Characters are interesting, and hold your interest to want to learn more. It is not my normal choice of books, but I'm so happy I did read it. Now I need Book 2.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Story

    I have read and enjoyed the Iron Druid Chronicles. But to be honest the story was not connecting as I wanted it to. Yes I'm the reader and require my stories to flow. I started to see each book as another romp with only some characters to be constant. Well I must say thank you. "Shattered" is the glue that holds the tales together. It brought things together to make sense--even to Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid himself. I can not wait until book 8 to see where they will go from here. Love the new character, Owen Kennedy,very colorful. And Granuaile has helped the story since she was added.

    I want to write to you Ms. Kim Harrison, You have brought us a world of a Witch that lived in and old church with vampires and pixies and deal with demons too. Rachel has been learning and growing more powerful as the series has grown. This was a great 13th book. It said good bye to some and let us see the ending of an era for Rachel. BUT--we need more. This is not an end to Rachel's story, her story continues . Yes it is true you have done a great job with this last book--so you call it. But we as readers need more--Rachel's wedding and a baby--for starts. We need more! What would this child bring into play--fun, fun, fun! You have to let us see Rachel as a mother. Write novellas or a group of short stories if you feel you can not do a novel that let us see what life is like for Rachel in the future. At least one more book. Please-we are not tired of Rachel yet.
    Thank you Marguerite Gaven, You have done a great job over the 13 books in this series. I hear your voice and I'm right back into the story where we left off the last time. Thank you

    I thought the book was a great adventure. The last book left us behind the wall in Blackveil and I have to say a hard book to continue a series from. What could you write to top that adventure and keep the story moving forward.
    I really didn't know where this story would take us without letting us down. Well Kristen Britain, you did it. The book took us to newer and higher places I didn't expect to go to at all. Excellent transition story and one that I couldn't but down. The questions left unanswered are a great opening to the next part of Karigan's story and leaving us wanting the next book. Is the information Karrigan brought him going to be helpful? Has our green rider changed from her experiences? Will there be a war?
    Extremely well written and Ellen Archer, your performance I always applaud. Thank you and I can't wait for the next book
