    It's not easy being a girl. It's even harder when you're the only girl in a family of werewolves. But it's next to impossible when your very existence spells out the doom of your race.... Meet Jessica McClain - she just became part of the pack. In the vein of Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs, a new urban fantasy that rewrites the werewolf myth....

    The narrator for this book was not good. There were very odd pauses and I ended up finally bumping the speed to 1.25x in order to finish the book. The book itself was ok, but I would recommend reading it yourself.

    Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealousy guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny. Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the library's rule.

    Volume was very inconsistent. Some moments I couldn't hear it at all while others were blowing out my car speakers.

    Featuring A Prelude to War, an Iron Druid novella. After an old friend is murdered in retaliation for his mercenary strikes against the oldest vampires in the world, Atticus O'Sullivan must solicit the aid of another old friend in Ethiopia if he's going to have a chance of finishing a war he never wanted. Meanwhile Granuaile MacTiernan starts a private war of her own against Loki, the lord of lies, and if it brings Ragnarok early - so be it.

    I got this audiobook for the iron Druid story. I loved it! But the other two, not so much. I didn't know enough about the plots to really get into those stories.

    Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.

    What did you love best about Flash and Bones?

    I always really enjoy the forensics and science behind the discoveries, as well as the depth of description and background that Reichs provides.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathy Reichs before, how does this one compare?

    This book is a bit weaker than some of her other books; it felt a bit rushed somehow. However, it's still the same old Brennan that we love.


    Any additional comments?

    Some people have complained about the abundance of NASCAR, and I was concerned that it would be to much. I didn't have a problem with it, however, and I am not a fan of the sport. It is well explained and relevant to the story, so for me it just became part of the background.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    What did you love best about Hexed?

    I really liked that the story was original and diverse.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke has a good voice, and it is easy to hear the differences in all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The book has been compared to the Dresden files, and that is a good comparison. At times, the main character ends up with more power than it seems he should have, so there is a bit of

    What did you love best about Rider: Spirals of Destiny: Book 1?

    I enjoyed the story line, the premise behind the plot.


    What didn’t you like about Christine Padovan’s performance?

    I didn't like the accents, the changes in voice, and the overall tone of the performance. The pacing was bad, and there were often pauses in the wrong places.
