    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Molly does it again, and just when you think the story has no where to go enter a whole new plot. Bring back all our old favorites and throw in some humor. Molly Harper's sense of timing is outstanding. I also love her naked warewolf books.

While working at the Honeybee Bakery - named after Lucy's cat - Katie notices that her aunt is adding mysterious herbs to her recipes.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    This book may not be on the well worn list of must reads for this genere yet...but it will be. Rothfuss has found a voice that is both unique and powerful. It also has a deep thread of truth and unless he completely fumbles his ending it is going to be EPIC. You will not know exactly where this story is going, and you will be checking the authors blog to see when the next book will be published.

    As the only female page in history to last beyond the first year of formal training, 11-year-old Keladry has a battle to fight. Kel's detractors do everything in their power to thwart her progress, from tormenting her friends to sabotaging the Midwinter Festivities to kidnapping her maid and dog on the day of final exams. The tide begins to turn during the summer, when she leads a team of pages in defensive maneuvers against renegade bandits - on the same day that she gets her first period!

    Story

    Tamora Pierce has filled such a need for well written characters in YA fiction it is difficult to describe her for a review to someone who might not have heard of her yet. Her writting is well crafted, and her main characters who are often girls are strong, moral, upright and worthy. Character is written deep in the roots of her characters. Problems are solved with thought and events while possibly magical are never unbelievable. Relationships are the foundations of her stories and she treats each with care and concious. I would reccomend her books to any mom of a young adult. She never forgets she is writing to an audience still growing and learning who they are and she does very well by them.

    "...there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats." So says Rat, as he welcomes the lonely Mole to the community of the River. Whether messing about in boats, touring in Toad's motorcar, or simply relaxing at home, Mole, Rat, Otter, Toad, and Badger demonstrate the honorable human characteristics of kindness, patience, and tolerance toward all that have made this classic tale beloved by generations since it was first published in 1908.

    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.

    Story

    Some of the reviews have complained about the plot drift from the romance that seemed to be starting in book 9. I disagree, the books have always been about the person who, with some luck might bring some balance to her very out of whack world. I thought the story moved well and was every bit as enjoyable as each before. I love Kim Harrisons sense of humor and wit. She balances that wit with real bone deep characters that you will cry over and find yourself holding your breath about. Marguerite Gavin is a master and I am pleased she is once again bringing me the voices of the characters I have come to love.

    Story

    First I have just found this series so the knowledge that I will be waiting 4-5 years for the next is sad. I was so enthalled with this story and love so many elements of it that are unique in the fantasy genere and yet classic. However I think Britain caved in to the trend toward darker themes happening in publishing these days. I was not impressed with the ending ot the authors treatment of Karagan in this volume. The Narration is wonderful and the story is very good but uts heading in a direction that might put me off the next book.

    Alexia Tarabotti, Lady Maccon, has settled into domestic bliss. Of course, being Alexia, such bliss involves integrating werewolves into London High society, living in a vampire's second best closet, and coping with a precocious toddler who is prone to turning supernatural willy-nilly. Even Ivy Tunstell's acting troupe's latest play, disastrous to say the least, cannot put a damper on Alexia's enjoyment of her new London lifestyle.

    I just love this series! Its fun but still has enough story to make it worth listening to and look forward to the next book. Emily Gray is doing a lovely job of narrating and her Lord A is perfect. I like my steampunk done witty and light and Gail nails it. Perfect to listen to while cleaning the house, it will make you laugh and keep you scrubbing dishes even when its your least favorite chore!

    Even as he trains to be a pilot for the Resisters, 12-year-old Ethan Blackwood is still reeling from the news that aliens called the Ch’zar have taken over the world and put all the adults under their mind control. Now the Ch’zar’s mechanical bug armies are growing. The Resisters need more pilots like Ethan, kids who aren’t afraid to think for themselves. Ethan knows just where the Ch’zar send troublemakers like him - to Sterling Reform School. Can Ethan find a way to break into Sterling and recruit new fighters before the enemy discovers the Resisters’ underground base?

    Story

    Eric Nylund is best know for Halo and so for many parents of young readers might be an author to hessitate over. Resisters was very well done and my 11 year old son connected with the caracters, enjoyed the idea of an alien take over where the parents are helpless but kids can come to the rescue. Book two continues to develope the resisters characters and got another two thumbs up fromt the son. There are just not enough good books in any genere that speak to young boys and stay PG and out of the overly graphic. I am very pleased Eric Nylund knows that a good story can stand without such and kept it young reader approperate.
