When i got this book, I have assumed that all these characters from all these authors will be mixing together, but nope, you have 14 short stories each one is based in a carnival, I will give you a quick review for these stories
1- Painted Love:
It was a weird story about a guy with a monkey tattoo who comes alive.. honestly, i was lost during this story. 2 stars.
2- The 3 lives of lydia by delilah s dawson
I liked this story, interesting and had a sad but unexpected ending.
3- The demon barker of wheat street by kevin Hearne
This was one of the reasons for buying this book, i am a big fan of the Iron Druid series. Here you have your favourite 3 characters, and your usual interesting story. The story itself was fine, they went to a carnival and many things happened there (its a short story, quick and short can't review that much) but narration was the worst, we are used to Luke Daniels's narration, Kirby Heyborne was good, but when he narrated Oberon, it came out a a serious voice, and that was just wrong.. story 5 stars, narration 2 stars (only for this book)
4- The sweeter the juice by mark henry
weird post zombie apocalypse short story, which is focused on trans-genders life with no doctors to help, as most died from the zombie apocalypse. Putting that aside, i was really bored from this book, half of it didn't make any sense, and the other half was boring.. and its ending was a bit weird as well.. i thought there would be 10 or 15 minutes left to finish, and all the sudden it ended... 2 stars
5- The WereWife by Jaye Wells
I liked this book, the plot was good, and the ending was unexpected. The story here is about a man and his wife who turned into a werewolf and he is trying to deal and live with it, then the carnival comes and he tries to fix what started there. And the narration here was good. 4 stars.
6- The Cold Girl by Rachel Caine
Another good story here, it talks about a girl who has a boyfriend for a killer, Before she finds that out they go to the carnival and the carnival help her in their own interesting way. 4 stars.
7- A Duet with Darkness by Allison Pang.
This wasn't a bad book, i liked it, but i think this is more appropriate for those who know the series already. 3 stars for me.
8- recession of the divine by Hillary Jacques
I didn't like this book much, it was about a girl who was a greek goddess or something and became human and works as an insurance investigator.. thats just weird.. i didn't understand much of this story, and didn't like it at all. 1 star
9- Parlor Tricks by Jennifer Estep.
This was the other reason for buying this book. I am a fan of the elemental assassin series. Its a quick story about Gin and her sister go to the carnival to find someone, and they end up finding that someone but not in a good situation 5 stars.
10- Freak House by Kelly Meding
Its about a girl who her father was captured by a carnival and she tries to free him with the help of some people she met. i liked this book 3 stars.
11- The Inside Man by Nicole Peeler
I haven't read Nicole Peeler's books before, but i did like this one, this book is a part of the Jane True series. When I started this story, i have assumed that i will not understand anything, but nope, it was easy and felt familiar somehow although i didn't hear about this series before. Its a good one. 4 stars.
12- A Chance in Hell by Jackie kessler
Another series which i didn't hear about, and this short story was a part of it, and it felt familiar as well. its a bout an ex-demon who became a human. in this short story she goes to the carnival with her friend who gets into trouble. I really liked this one, hope that it will come to audible some time soon. 4 stars.
13- Hell's Menagerie by Kelly Gay
This is another short story from a series, but didn't like it much, it took a while to get to know these characters a bit, and the story plot was ok but nothing amazing or great.
its about 2 kids who go to hell to rescue hell hound pups, which were stolen by a carnival. 3 stars.
14- Daughter of The Midway by Seanan McGuire
This is about a mermaid who joined a carnival and had a daughter who is one as well. This carnival goes to Alabama for a show but some people try to take the little mermaid. Not a bad story. 3 stars.
So this is my longest review i have ever written. I hope you find these reviews quick and useful. If you want a set of magical short stories, then this books is a good choice.
I just finished reading/listening to "How to flirt with a naked werewolf" and before i finished it i already had this book downloading into my iPhone to have a listen to it. Just finished it and i loved it. One of my favourite things in a series is having every book talking from the perspective of a new character, and this is what Molly did, she took Maggie, the alpha werewolf, and made her the main character in this book and that was a good choice.
The sisterhood thingy between Maggie and Mo is hilarious, and the new guy Maggie meets .... well you have to get the book to know, but he is a good character in this book..
Have a listen, you will love it.
I'm a regular, i tend to see and read about many books here at audible.com... i kept on seeing this book, and i knew it was a best seller at audible, but for some weird reason i didn't even stop to read its summary.... i just red it the day before i wrote the review, and i loved it.. it was funny, it was engaging and i couldn't stop listening to it...
This is the first time i listen to a Molly Harper book, and i can see/hear/read her talent and why she is a good author.
What i like about this book that werewolves are big deal, but the main character doesn't really give a damn about that.. you get plenty of jokes and its ending was very good.
Basically its damn good, damn funny, and you get to like these characters.
Already bought the 2nd book, reading it right now.. and will pre order the 3rd one soon.
After putting off reading Jane Yellowrock first book, I immediately started reading the 2nd book.. and soon will start with the 3rd one too.. You meet Molly (Jane's best friend) and her kids, and you will love them....
The hunt goes on for the vamp maker and it gets really interesting. You learn more about vamps and very interesting and OMG moments you get while reading this book.
Larson started a new series and i do like it... This new series is set where earth has joined the Galactic and offer their soldiers for credits. This one had plenty of action as well.. But what i liked the most here is that there is a unique idea here which is not in any other series .. But i can't say, i will spoil the book to you guys...
If you liked Larson's Star Force series, chances are you will enjoy this one too.
Narration is good, but for Star Force fans, you will easily otic the narrator making the same voices for characters in star force series here ini Steel World, which i found confusing a bit.
Sadly I bought this book last year, but I wasn't in the mind set to read it at the time.. But now I'm kicking myself for not reading it at the time.. This is a really good book and a good series, just got the 2nd and 3rd, and will get the rest afterwards.
Jane is hired by vampires to kill a crazy vampire who is killing vampires and humans , no one knows who is it and she starts investigating. I kept on thinking that it will be a simple plot nothing wow about it and no twists, but I was wrong, too many interesting twists happen in this book and its ending is good. And during this book and I assume the rest of the series, Jane gets to know more and more about her past and who she is, its always to discover who is the main character when she doesn't know her past that well.
Pick it up, you will like it.
If you are a Mark Tufo fan, you most probably already know the fallout zombie series.. In this book its the other way around, you are not listening to the survivors, you are listening to one zombie's experience!!!!! Creepy!!!!!!
I loved the book, it was fantastic, and our friend Mike is there somewhere in the book, but its just too bloody... i got to some points where i felt evil and horror coming out from my headphones, which made me take a break..... Its too bloody!!!!
But even though, you have to get it and read it.
Enjoy!!!! As much as you can..
In this Volume there is 2 books, the first book was amazing and too many changes, and the last book was a fantastic finishing to a fantastic series.. Honestly I was shocked with its ending and loved it.
I can't give a detailed review as others can for this series, but honestly in my opinion it had a good start and it had a great finish..
Another good zombie series,, not all zombie books are good, specially when they are realistic a bit, but this one is fantastic!!!!
i liked the plot, I liked the story, and I liked the main character... The challenges are good, and the twists too.
For those who like Zombie books you will like this one.
From the beginning of this book, Mark Tufo says that this is a different reality, its not the same one as Mike Talbot lived in with the zombie apocalypse. I have assumed that it was just some story regarding Mike before the zombie thing, and I got so confused in the beginning.
The beginning of the book is sad, but you get cheered up when Mike finds a new girl and story gets really good turn, but if you try to figure out whats going on, believe me when i say that, you will never guess until the end of the book.
Mark Tufo has done a great job with this book, its not his typical work, but I agree with other reviewers who said, its a dark book.. felt really bad for our guy here.
Set down, listen to it, and you will like it.
P.S. I advice anyone who wants to read/listen to this book to start first with the zombie series by Mark Tufo so you could understand exactly whats going on, I don't mean the whole series, just the first book at least.
This addition to the series is fantastic. What i loved here is the addition of new characters, the answers of a lot of questions, and the come back of certain characters.
There isn't anything better than reading about the love-hate relationship between Mike and BT, but here you find a new kind of relationship between BT and someone else.. you will love it.
Don't worry, after the vampire's death, there is still a lot of action, and interesting development, you will love this book, too many twists, and too many jokes too.. i bursted out laughing couple of times while i was at the office.. people looked at me like am some kind of a crazy person... I just can't control myself when i read/listen to Mike and BT, nothing is better than these two guys.
The end of this book was a sudden one, and i really can't wait until the next book comes..
