    Overall

    A long time LKH fan, I was just as disappointed w/ this story as I was Bullet. Nothing happened. None of our favorite characters were present, other than Anita and Edward. I know LKH has been taking a lot of flak lately about the graphic sex scenes, and those were definitely dialed back. (Only one scene) Also, the Marmee Noir situation, that has been a central part of many books, was over and done w/ in just a few pages. And finally, the books seem to be shrinking more and more every year. She went from epic length tomes in her early years, to 300 page novels the past 3 books. Very disappointed.

    The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

    When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss—who also happens to be her drug dealer—to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity, her boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the old sparks between them.

    What a great book! I loved the first 3 books, and was desperately hoping Bahni Turpin was reading this one, and she was! She reads the voices better than I can imagine them, especially Terrible and Lex. I enjoyed hearing about Chess' latest adventures in witchery. This series makes me feel for all of the characters, especially the drug addicted Chess. Throw in plenty of magic, ghosts and sex, and I was sold!

    I didn't realize when I bought this that it was a different narrator, but I was so used to the one from Books 1 & 2, that the differences in pronunciations are jarring. I really hope they get the other narrator back to record book 4

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    As per his usual, this book was long, and very well written. There were a few points that started shivers up my spine, but not nearly as many as previous books. The narrator was really good, except for two traits. One, he made the janitor, Harry sound terribly slow. And two, which was my biggest pet peeve, since King is from Maine and so am I, was the narrator's mispronouncing a few words in his New England accents. Bangor up here, is not pronounced BANG-er, it's said Bang w/ a hard G and -OR. So Ban-Gor. Other than those, this was a credit well spent, not to mention an enjoyable way to spend 30 hours.

    He had stepped from the sky to claim her like an enchanted prince from the pages of a fairy tale, but behind the mesmerizing beauty of his violet eyes she saw the driving hunger of the beast and an endless sorrow only she could heal. Only for him would she embrace her frightening magic. Only for him would she find the courage to confront the shadows that haunted her soul. Only with him could she hope to defeat the terrifying evil that had pursued her all her life. No barrier could stand between truemates, not of the body, mind or soul.

    Story

    This book was really funny for the subject matter. Kind of Shaun of the Dead meets Twilight. The narrator has a British accent which kind of threw me, since the main character, Bobby is a person who just moved to Great Britain from the US. She keeps forgetting to call french fries "chips" but she has a heavy English accent. The story was pretty standard, but wholly entertaining. Short(just over 7 hours), but I found myself laughing out loud a few times. Not worth a credit, but worth paying cash.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Aser Tolentino says: "Superheroes vs. Zombies? Sure, why not..."
    "Not Bad"
    Overall

    This wasn't the greatest zombie book ever, but there wasn't any standout bad parts either. The narration was good, the story interesting, but it wasn't the kind of book you try to find chores to do so you can listen more. I would still rate Day by Day Armageddon and the Morningstar books higher that this one. That being said, this book has action, zombies, and superheroes. What more can I say, other than I am glad I didn't use a credit for it?

    Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz cooks up bigtrouble as she tries to help her longtime friend and fellow chef Yolanda Garcia. When the rental house shared by Yolanda and her irrepressible aunt Ferdinanda is destroyed by arson, the pair move in with cop-turned-PI Ernest McLeod. But then Ernest is shot dead and his house is set on fire, nearly killing Goldy, Yolanda, Ferdinanda, and nine beagle puppies that Ernest had recently rescued from a puppymill. Concerned for her friends, Goldy invites them to stay with her while the sheriff’s department investigates. Yet even Goldy's house isn't safe....

    Overall

    I normally love Davidson's cozy mystery series, but this volume has left me with a sour taste. Goldy barely cooked in this story, and the best parts of her story such as Julian and Arch were hardly mentioned. I hope Davidson's next attempt serves up more excitement or I fear this will be my last purchase of her work.
