    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    What disappointed you about Kiss the Dead?

    Wish I had listened to the reviews! This book lacked any real plot and cohesion. Anita has progressively gotten whinier and annoying as the series has progressed. It seems like the books are following a similar pattern of "Bad guy killing, sex, guilt from sex, guilt from not having sex, back to killing bad guys." Repeat ad nauseam.Another point of annoyance was the over use of "sullen". Everyone is sullen at one point or another, often more than once in a paragraph!I wish she'd write more about Edward, he's at least interesting in his interaction with Anita, AND he's not trying to sleep with her. A refreshing change to the repetitive nature of this series.


    Any additional comments?

    The only redeeming thing about this book is the narrator. Kimberly Alexis is a brilliant voice, and she's only gotten better through the series.

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    This would have been enjoyable if it weren't for Molly C. Quinn, the female narrator. She's got a high pitched whiny voice that has no depth, or emotional range.
    Molly took any enjoyment out of this book.

    Ed Westwick, the male narrator, was decent. Though going between his (British?) accent into a New York accent can be a bit rough to get used to, he was certainly leagues better at narrating than Molly.
