    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    Overall

    This series is one of the best I’ve read/listen to... the characters are in depth and the narrator does such a great job at portraying them you'll actually be left thinking 'Ha, that's something Vlad would say' etc... If you have read/listen to the first 4 books of the Night Huntress Series and the 2 World Huntress Series it's a must, while each book is easily a standalone story, they definitely run on from one another. If this is one of the first series you've gotten, I also liked the Sookie Stackhouse series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series and the Drake Chronicles (It's taken me a long time to find some good vampire series, I wished people would write what else they liked in their comments)... Happy reading, can't wait for the Vlad World Huntress book to come out...

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    What did you love best about A Little Night Magic?

    I loved this book. If you enjoy Molly Harper novels then this is worth listening to. Amanda Ronconi brings out the great sarcastic humour and the characters work well together but have their own right in the story as well. I'm really hoping Lucy March will follow this novel up with another and make it a series.

    Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Now the vampires and the shapeshifters are 'out', you'd think the supernaturals would get on with each other. But nothing is that simple in Bon Temps!

    "Seemed to be a bridge Novel"
    Overall

    I love the Sookie series and am always waiting impatiently till the next one comes out. However, while reading/listening to this one I was always waiting for the book to get to the actually main event... while there is always other things happening throughout the other books there is usually a main event, i.e., Sookie meet Bill, Sookie saved bill, The witch war/saving Eric... etc...

    But this book didn’t offer that, it just seemed that it stretched out a bit of an ending to book 10 and laid ground work for a book 12?... No major event happened and there were lots of questions left hanging, like the last few chapters have been ripped out...

    Bit of a downer really, but, if you love the series then I'd still get the book, because if there is a book 12 then you'll be left behind in the storyline, like I said, this book seemed to lay the groundwork for the next book.

    Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

    Coby says: "Half a book"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I feel sorry for the narrator, as there is now way she could make this book sound good. The main character, Betsy, is whiney and ridiculous. I stopped listening by the 12 chapter as nothing had happened in the story line, I then realised this must have been because there WAS no story line. I'm sorry I wasted my time and money on this book.
