    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?

    Benoibe says: "Surprised! SPECTACULAR AND SEXY!"

    Overall

    very good listen. the combination and chemistry of Cat and Bones's characters were fab, I also liked the fact it had romance and action without being insanely hammy, on both accounts . Plus his sweet to her spice, wait no um her spunk to his, her being half magic to his being full vampire,the gruff and all knowing teacher to butt kicking student that takes teacher down a few notches emotionally, wait-no....
    I also enjoyed how they took down a few vampire myths in the meantime though.

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    Would you listen to Dead Reckoning again? Why?

    sure


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Reckoning?

    not sure if there was ONE specific part that stuck out in my mind


    Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, but her voice and the character's voice/accent seem well matched up

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    those who might not care all that much about the specific recording's sound quality


    What was most disappointing about Amy Blankenship and R. K. Melton ’s story?

    the sound quality or lack there of in this recording made it tough to get past
    the story jumped around from side plot to side plot soooooo much that it made it less enjoyable. I also wish there had been previous charcters' development again, I hadn't ever read any others in this series and really feel I missed out on understanding the subtle histories/tension/past chemistry etc with certain characters.


    What didn’t you like about K. B. Stanford’s performance?

    her performance was fine, the writing could have been better though

    When struggling screenwriter Morgan DeSilva uncovers the ancient leather diaries in the attic of an old house in Maine, she is swept into the seductive world of a long-dead madman who had believed himself a vampire. Now, though Dante's story has made her rich and famous, Morgan is wasting away. At night she dreams of him, an erotic fantasy so real she can see the marks on her neck, feel her life's blood draining from her....

    A User says: "Mediocre Storyline and..."
    "I really enjoyed this story!"
    Overall

    I loved the combination of narrator plus the writing, made for a very neat listen. I couldn't stop listening till it, I felt almost entranced. made it very easy to imagine yourself there actually 'seeing' the story as it happened. it was a tad
    confusing till I got the groove since the writer was doing the 'Dean Koontz' thing and had more than one introductory storyline w/ other characters with what seems totally different stories being told, but she brings both worlds together towards the end to tie up some of the 'wha?' type moments

    Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires. Yeah, just another day in her life.

    "good weekend listen"
    Overall

    this book had more potential, it started out great in my mind, good characters but the story never really turned into much. The scenarios were just a teeny bit predictable in my mind, but all in all it was enjoyable for a lazy sunday afternoon read.

    As one of the most ancient in the Argeneau clan, Cale Valens has given up on finding a life mate. His friends and family, however, have not. In fact, they believe they've finally found his perfect match. Getting them together, however, requires one little white lie.

    Kristi says: "Wowserz!"
    "very enjoyable listen"
    Overall

    loved the female character and the portrayal of her life, the man was also refreshing in that he was old/wise but wasn't some bossy bully all knowing fellow (what with him being 300 years old and all) The man who read the story has a fantastic voice too, he can use different accents and not sound like an idiot
    (he's like a voice actor, sounds very 'real')

  • Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men: Jane Jameson, Book 2

    Story

    Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

    Kickez says: "A great continuation from the 1st book!"
    "ehh"
    Overall

    This story still had real life humor and the same interesting characters,(actually that was one of the things I loved most was the spunky Jane Jameson) but I wasn't quite as interested in the actual storyline as the book before. At first the characters were refreshing and different than the stereotypical depressingly two dimensional characters but this one just seemed whiny and depressingly 'bla' to me. Seemed like the author was only writing it to fulfill something like a contract agreement with the publisher.

    Shy, charming, peculiar, and web-toed, Alice Riley has suffered for years at the hands of her dead mother's self-righteous family, while she hides a bevy of secret abilities. When Alice rescues a drowning child, her amazing talents are exposed. Alice can remain underwater for extraordinary periods of time, and she can locate submerged objects through some type of natural sonar ability.

    Margaret says: "Loved this book"
    "loved this story but the voice...."
    Overall

    I adored this story, although the woman that read it did not have a very good voice, maybe it they weren't charging money for the book, I wouldn't have minded her voice was well, icky.. But all in all not a bad buy, it had a kind of real world fairy tale quality about it, without being overly Disney-ish or resembling a stuffed Denver omelet by being insanely cheesy/hammy
