    For Seattle detective Joanne Walker, spring is about new beginnings. She’s mastered her shamanic abilities (mostly), survived a cannibalistic serial killer (barely) and now she’s facing the biggest challenge of her career—attending a dance concert with her sexy boss, Captain Michael Morrison. But when the performance—billed as transformative—actually changes her into a coyote, she and Morrison have bigger things to deal with.

    I loved this book. I read it a hundred times before I got the audio, and at first I was a little skeptical of Lorelei King's voice, it was deeper than I had thought. However, it wasn't long before I started associated her voice with this series and now couldn't imagine anyone better suited!

    The year is 2195. The place is New Victoria - a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era. A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country’s political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls. But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who has squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Lia Habel? Why or why not?

    Probably.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book was light and cute! I loved the zombie angle, I am usually not a big zombie fan, but this book I liked. In my opinion it was a bit better than Twilight. The characters were fun!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I actually almost did listen to this book in one sitting, I went for a quick morning walk and 8 miles later, I was in downtown Denver. (The walk back was terrible!) There is so much that happens in this book I just got sucked in. I was really glad I went back and skimmed through the other books in the series before listening to this one though, otherwise I would have been a little lost! This is one I will definitely have to listen to again to pick up everything that happened.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....
