    John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown. Taken in by The Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was-or his true identity. Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.

    I doubt I can say it better than Sandra from MO wrote, but... yeh, ditto ditto and more ditto.
    It took me about 3 books to really start to like Jim Frangione. He's just so damned precise w/ his articulation. LOL, but now I think I'd be sick to hear anyone else read this series. He's wonderful. And JIC anyone out there forgot, JR WARD rocks it HARD w/ the BDB series and remember to check out Covet, the new Fallen Angel series. Man, please please please keep these coming. We love you JR WARD!!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    I really love these characters and have even gotten my Dad hooked on this great series, but I have one comment on the plausibility or necessity of part of this story. During a life or death battle with perilous god-like creatures, is it really the best time to bring up a dumbass bet you made with your hound about the use of action hero lingo??!! C'MON! Mr. Hearne, you are, without question, an extremely knowledgeable and talented writer. So why would you make a bonehead choice like that? I realize that it is expected that we must suspend disbelief for most fiction, perhaps especially paranormal or urban fantasy fiction. But you DO still want us to believe in the characters and imagine that all these incredible and insane situations that are on the page are really happening, right? So if your hero is supposed to be so careful, paranoid, and always aware of his surroundings, why would he start having an argument about something so inane when lives are on the line in the middle of a fight? Just sayin.
    Otherwise, I do love Oberon, Atticus and maybe even Coyote, and I will keep reading as long as the books are hitting the e-shelves. Thank you so much for hours of entertainment. ;)

    OHmagosh! I just loved this installment in the Dulcie O'Neal series. It was smart and action packed with tons of intrigue and yet still keeping to each characters true voice. This one really takes the drama up a notch, so hold on for a Hell of a ride. :)

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    When I saw this movie, I had only completed the first section of the book. Even before the movie I was given the spoiler of the twist ending, so that didn't put me off the book like others have panned the book for. Having said that, it is the relationship of each MC that is drawing me in and I'm certainly less inclined to read further if that dynamic changes.
    On a separate note, I realize Clary is just a regular girl thrown into the mix of some seriously crazy shtuff. But I'm not enjoying reading about a normal person reacting to these supernatural occurrences. It's like imagining what I would do and it's basically whine, cry and nearly wet myself. NOT entertaining. It may not be realistic, but can I please have some fiction in my fiction and see Clary do something other than be a scared bystander? Blegh. No bueno!
    Only, and I can't stress that enough, ONLY because a good friend told me to keep reading and that I won't be disappointed is why I'll continue on with this series. *crossing fingers.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    As Laird, Callum Lennon feels he has always failed to protect his cousins. Callum's impulsiveness caused the death of his father and the experience has scarred not only his body, but his soul. From that point on, he made sure to always go with the more logical choice in every matter. When his younger cousin Angus finds clues that might help break the curse, Callum begrudgingly hires Phoebe Chilton to investigate. Callum doesn't like bringing outsiders into their family affairs.

    For a "strictly speaking" paranormal romance, there was a ridiculous lack of paranormal. I was really hoping to add this to our potential reading list for my paranormal romance bookclub. But I'd be ridden out on a rail after they read this. It was basically just a breathy and broody contemporary romance with some super hot Scots. Not bad, but not great either. I'm usually a fan of Melissa Schroeder's work. I definitely consider myself a Harmless Fan, if not an Addict. This just didn't seem up to the same standards as some of her other work. I doubt I'll read more if they come out.

    I have read this series before and am going back to listen again. It just doesn't get old for me. Joyce Bean brings Mac to life like no other and I just wish she could have finished out the series. This story introduces us to the world of the Fae in Dublin just as Mac is thrust into this crazy and terrifying world her older sister was murdered in. The characters are intriguing and the story-line never grows stale. I will probably read this one again in another year or so. Love it!

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

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

    Nope.

    I get the idea of leaving the audience begging for more. But I felt like there should've been just MORE of this story before the end. Don't get me wrong, I am definitely eager to see what will happen next for the characters of this series. I guess I just wish there was a little more HEA in the HEA of this book.

    Nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks, Miller's Kill, New York is about as safe as it gets. That's why Episcopal minister Clare Fergusson is shocked when the July Fourth weekend brings a rash of vicious assaults to the scenic town. Even Clare's good friend, police chief Russ Van Alstyne, is shaken by the brutality of the crimes - especially when it appears that the victims were chosen because they are gay.

But when both encountered unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex could only cry to heaven for their deliverance. Out of the darkness swooped Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious than any other creature of the night.

    I cant believe they kept using this narrator for 4 or 5 books! WTH? She cant even pronounce the simplest of words, let alone have any real character emotion. YICK! I swear, I dont know if I'll even finish the next book via audio and I KNOW I wont buy any other books narrated by Juanita Parker. Blegh!
