    Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a 17-year-old human girl, he can’t seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he’s entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prizefighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    a good ending, I thought as it was really the only way to end. I enjoyed all 10 books although 10 was dragged out slightly. I am really appreciative of such an imaginative mind & big thanks to both narrators for finishing the books, also making the characters so real.Thank You :)

    only one more to go, soooooo sad to leave these characters behind. really hoping book 10 ends well. all fantasy lovers should give these books a go, would be surprised if some didn't enjoy them. I am so in awe of Roger Zelazny's imagination and He could not have chosen two better narrators
