Paranormal fantasy inline with the JR Ward series. While there is a storyline here that shows promise, the continuous whining and complaining of the characters just gets old. Woman falls madly in love with the male lead in a very short period of time even though all he does is lie to her, order her around, tell her how much he doesn't want her, broods, blah blah. I found the story getting on my nerves, but intrigued enough that I will listen to the next book in the series.
Sandman Slim was a good read and the narrator was excellent, did a really great job! The main character in this Urban Fantasy is sarcastic, non apologetic and a bit crazy. Story moved along very fast and was entertaining. Plan on readying the next book in the series.
What makes the In Death series so enjoyable is the characters that we have come to know and love. As a fan of the series since the beginning this was just not one of my favorites. The story moved along too slowly and there was hardly no interaction between the characters. There was no growth to the characters or the storyline, you could easily skip over the book and not miss a thing. If you are a longtime fan of the series, read it. If you are new to the series, this is not the book to start with.
Jane Yellowrock is the Queen of the kick-butt Urban Fantasy woman heroes. It has been great watching her evolve as this series continues.
This latest installment has Jane and her security teams scrambling to prepare for the European Council to visit when trouble starts. While this book definitely stands on its own, it is obvious Ms. Hunter is building up to the next book in the series.
Vampires, magic, fighting, with a little romance thrown in makes for a great listen, and Khristine Hvam is one of the best narrators I have listened to.
Really, really love this series!
Have followed Rachel's story since the first book, been through the good times and the bad times, through the laughter and the tears. Sorry to see the end of such a great series, but glad they are going out on the top.
This installment was not the best book in the series, felt that Ivy has been missing from the last few books of the series and she seems so needy in this one. Being the last book in the series, loose ends needed to be tied up and a conclusion had to be written, all in all, I felt that the book ended up in a place that I wanted Rachel to be.
If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy, or like a good, well written story full of action, humor, a little romance and mystery, you will love this series.
I would like to thank Kim Harrison and Marguerite Gavin for the many hours of enjoyment, hats off to both of you, would not have missed a second of it.
Wow, this series is definitely my favorite Urban Fantasy series. Well developed characters, a rich world of fantasy that has been cultivated over the series, and a strong female lead. This installment did not have as much interaction between the characters as in previous books which gave it a different feel than the other books, less of a warm, homey-environment feel, but the direction the story went, makes it all worth while.
If you are new to the series, to really appreciate the storyline, you should probably go back to the beginning and enjoy the books leading up to this one. The narrator, Renee Raudman, is one of the BEST!
This book is a little darker than your typical Urban Fantasy. The main characters are drug addicted criminals, make no excuses for it, and content with who they are. The world the author creates is well developed, the bogey man in the story is frankly, kinda scary!
I enjoyed the book, it kept my interest, and I will be checking out the next book in the series.
Like all the other books in the series - funny, silly, likeable characters and a good story.
I love Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series. Definitely in my top 10 of all time. I avoided the Lincoln Lawyer series because I had never been a fan of the legal thriller. That was until I read this series.
Michael Connelly has given us another character that you can't help but love and root for at every turn. The novel moves along quickly and is not weighted down by legal procedures, etc. But it does open up the world of the trial lawyer from the defendants perspective and gives the reader a view of the inner workings of the justice system from that side.
Great plot, great characters, extremely well written. A great story all around. I recommend all the books in this series.
Can't even decide if I liked the book or not.
The story takes place in an alternate universe where the main character gets pulled out of her world to solve a series of crimes. I just kept asking myself throughout the book why would a universe run by centuries old vampires and other magic creatures, find it necessary to pull a young human FBI agent into their world, at great cost, to solve a series of crimes in a world they were totally unfamiliar with? Too many questions that are intricate to the plot are left unanswered or brushed aside.
The "bad guy" was one of the more interesting/likable characters in the book, but the crimes he commits are absolutely atrocious, so I had to keep reminding myself not to like him. The main character tries really hard to come off as a total bitch by being obnoxious to everyone around her, yet she just goes along with the fact that she has been kidnapped like its no big deal. Did not like her at all.
Haven't decided if I will go any further with this series. I think the author could redeem the series with better character development, toning down the torture murders, and explaining the world and the choices that were made a little better.
