    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Overall

    I found it! This series had a similar supernatural/vampire romance backround that I love, but was still different enough that I didn't feel like I was reading the same story. It was exactly what I was looking for. For me, I find that a great book is one that has me stealing time to listen every chance I get, and I was with this book! The main character, Cat, had a great mix of power and faults- her powers being supernatural, and one fault being her uncompromising hatred. Her captor, Bones, was a perfect "bad boy" with a conscience.

    On top of all that, the narrator did a great job portraying all of the characters(can't stand listening to an awful narrator- no matter how good a book is). Overall, definately worth buying. The only problem I find is that there are(at this time) 2 more books in this series that aren't available in audio yet!!! I'm purchasing the 2nd today that just became available this week!

    While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to reestablish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders. But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are - even the vampires.

    Overall

    I was pleasantly surprised after reading each of the 9 books in this series, that I couldn't wait for the next book! Except for rare cases like this series, I get bored by the 4th or 5th book in most series since it seems to get more and more difficult to top the last one(or in some cases, the first one). This entire series kept me coming back for more with a great balance of character, suspense, intrigue, comic relief, and just enough romance. I'm impressed! I hope she keeps them coming! I can't wait for the next one!

  • City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments, Book 1

    Story
    (2854)

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Teddy says: "2 Stars because it actually gets worse...."
    "A Wonderful Fantasy!!!"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure about this series. I love twilight and other vampire romance type books and thought this would be too sci-fi for me to get into. I was so very wrong!! I think that the story was so well written, it felt like it could almost be real! Or at least a wonderful fantasy!
    I've read all three books now, and I'm so very sad the story's ended. I can only hope there will be more like it written from this author!
