    Story

    I love all Andrea Kane books, and this was no exception. I like that the characters act as you'd expect any human being to behave, to have doubts, sometimes act impulsively. And the plots and twists that make up the fiction are nicely done.

    A mating mark is a symbol of possession but for Michael that tiny taste of blood is his downfall. The blood of the Fallen is deceptively seductive to a Sun God and the powerful rush Michael receives is very addictive. In order to protect Aurora from himself, Michael begins to hunt down the most powerful demons in the city to satisfy his dark craving. As the black blood pulses within his veins Michael loses himself to the rush and becomes just as dangerous as the demons he is hunting.

    Story

    I have followed this series since the first audiobook, and enjoyed inmensely every story.
    But I can't get used to the new narrator. Miss Stanford, the previous narrator for the series, read with emotion and enthusiasm. Mr Davis reading in comparison seems flat and unenjoying.

    As with his previous works, Dan Brown delivers a gripping adventure, entertaining as well.
    This time, he also writes about the worlwide problem of overpopulation, delivering hard truths throug the medium of his wonderful characters.

  • Perfect Daughters: Adult Daughters of Alcoholics

    This new edition of Perfect Daughters, a pivotal book in the ACoA movement, identifies what differentiates the adult daughters of alcoholics from other women. When this groundbreaking book first appeared over 10 years ago, Dr. Ackerman identified behavior patterns shared by daughters of alcoholics. Adult daughters of alcoholics - "perfect daughters" - operate from a base of harsh and limiting views of themselves and the world.

    Story

    Dean Koontz is one of the best storytellers I's ever read. I've listened to this book at least four times, and I only put it down because there were other books I wanted to get to. I love the way he combines the personal stories of the characters with the science fiction or supernatural elements of the stories. Simply great.

    She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are sceptical. The mayor won't listen. And Cat's chief suspect is one of the city's most prominent citizens.

    Story

    This is an early Gerritsen novel, and it shows. The character could be deeper, better explained, and there are some gaps in the development, but maybe the editor cut out a little too much. Even so, it shows the trend she'll take later, and the story is nicely done, and enjoyable.

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    Story

    This book is part of the Rizzolli & Isles investigative duo. It focuses on Dr. Isles, and lets the reader see into her much more clearly. The story also leaves the usual setting, and Isles seems to be maturing in some ways. It's an entertaining story, with a good story line, I enjoyed it a lot.

    There once was a killer who knew the night, its secrets and rhythms. How to hide within its shadows. When to hunt. He roamed from town to town, city to city, choosing his prey for their beauty and innocence. His cruelties were infinite, his humanity long since forfeit. But still... he had not yet discovered how to make his special mark among monsters, how to come fully alive as Death. This is the story of how he learned those things, and of what we might do to ensure that he does not visit us.

    Story

    I've always loved Dean Koontz, and this story is no exception. It ties into another novel of his, and the two dovetail beautifully. Koontz always tries to get the readers to appreciate the nobility of the human spirit, but to see that it has to deal with the everyday world, and sometimes make compromises. Beautifully done story.

    This is a classic Brian Keene, not for the faint of heart or the viscerally sensitive. Be ready to be spooked, horrified, and saddened. Keene does not try to redeem the better qualities of the human race, but to expose the darker elements, and the supernatural, and let you digest it.
