    The good news: Zoey's friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren't Neferet's secrets any longer. The bad news: Ancient evil with the face of an angel has been let loose - that and various other nasties (whose faces aren't so angelic). Grandma Redbird is in trouble. Heath is in trouble. The House of Night is in trouble. Okay, let's face it - Zoey's whole world is in trouble!

    Dana E. Warren says: "A let down"
    "Great series!"
    Overall

    The House of Night series is tagged as YA, and so it is (lots of teenage angst) - but I can honestly say I have enjoyed, and I am in my (ahem) mid-30's! :)

    The plot is very interesting, and each book leaves you wondering what will happen next! I am looking forward to the next release in the fall!

    The three Beauchamp women—Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid—live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret—they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries....

    Teddy says: "Actually a nice, light listen"
    "Pretty good!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this - it felt "long" at times, but it was a pretty good story.

    Kitty Norville is back and in more trouble than ever. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the U.S. government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history actually been supernatural?

    beatrice says: "Not one of her best"
    "It was okay--"
    Overall

    I love Kitty, but I just didn't not get into this one the way I have in the previous books. (The last couple have been off for me.) I was really interested in the historic bent that the book started on - then we derailed to San Francisco and Roman... and I only half-listened through the last couple of hours so I'd know what happened. Hoping the spark is back in the next book! :) PS: Love Marguerite Gavin as always!

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author MaryJanice Davidson’s tales featuring Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor are a perfect blend of humor, horror, and high fashion. In this 10th installment, Betsy finds herself puzzling over an unusual predicament. As the Vampire Queen, she believes she cannot die. So when she wakes in the morgue, it’s a bit confusing. Could it have something to do with her recent time-traveling excursion, or has a wicked enemy emerged who could be the end of Betsy once and for all?

    Laura says: "Utterly Disappointing"
    "Not that bad..."
    Overall

    I was almost afraid to get the new "Queen Betsy" based on what some of the reviewers said, but I went for it... had to see what was going to happen!

    It was certainly not as bad as others made it out to be - Betsy is the same vampy gal in this book as she is in all the others - but I can't say that I found this as entertaining as the first several books. (What was up with Nick/Dick... I don't know why his name had to change...) :)

    I think MaryJanice Davidson is building toward something interesting... but it's unfortunate that the story has lost some of the charm and fun that it had when we started.

    I will keep reading/listening! PS: Nancy Wu does an outstanding job as always!!

    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    Sandi J Wilson says: "FABULOUS FIND"
    "Made me laugh!"
    Overall

    This was a very enjoyable book - what I consider a light, fun read! Kyra Davis made me laugh out loud a few times, which is hard to do. :) I think the narrator did a great job. Will listen to more in this series.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Mariya says: "Incredible Internal Consistency"
    "A little bland..."
    Overall

    I love Rachel and team, but I could only give this one three stars. There were points when I truly felt that the story was just being drawn out to add length. I will keep reading the series, just didn't find this one as good as the others.

    "My love, speak to me. Tell me everything.” Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal. “What would you have me say?” He didn’t meet her eyes. “Zoey lives.” Neferet’s voice was flat, cold, lifeless.“She does.”“Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul.” She started to walk away from him.“Where are you going? What will happen next?”

    Dorothy says: "love this series"
    "Finally some movement!"
    Overall

    This series while interesting has been moving a little slow, considering it takes a book to get through one night of the story... we actually get through a few days in Awakened, and the story moves along quite a bit. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Captivating"
    Overall

    I found The Hunger Games to be a slow start, but once I got into it, I was captivated by this story! I have to admit some disappointment at the end, as it appears we are going to be trapped in a love triangle, and I guess I thought Katniss would be above that... :) I am taking a break from the series, but do want to come back to it and finish the trilogy.

    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?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "Can't agree with average ratings..."
    Overall

    I cannot say that I "loved" Halfway to the Grave. I found Kat to be a very immature heroine, and listening to the narrator attempting the "Bones" accent was very grating at times!

    But - after reading what the next book is about, I think that I may give #2 a shot and see if the Kat and the series grow up a bit!

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    sadee poulsen says: "Koontz is back!"
    "Terribly slow!"
    Overall

    I usually like Dean Koontz, but this book was terribly slow - so slow it was really hard to pay attention to what was being read. All of the action happened in the last hour, and it took way too long to get to that point.

    I appreciate that a young girl was showing off a big vocabulary in the book, but Dean Koontz also seemed to be showing off his love of big words and lofty descriptions - all completely unnecessary and just adding to the number of hours it took to get through this.

    Steven Weber did a great job as narrator - I would listen to him again. Big fan! :)

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Roger says: "review of Abby Cooper series"
    "Really like this series!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed Abby enough to go on and read the rest of the series, and I am glad I did - the books seem to get better and better! All of the books are a fun read!

    Try Victoria Laurie's "Ghost Hunter" series as well!
