    The Price family has spent generations studying the monsters of the world, working to protect them from humanity - and humanity from them. Enter Verity Price. Despite being trained from birth as a cryptozoologist, she'd rather dance a tango than tangle with a demon, and is spending a year in Manhattan while she pursues her career in professional ballroom dance. Sounds pretty simple, right?

    Story

    There are a lot of romance fantasies out there, many of which take place in modern times. Most of them revolve around angels, vampires, or werewolves, and the main character who is a strong, independent woman who's mind inexplicably clouds at the sight of them. Fighting her better judgement, she just can't help but love the guy, and he's too stiff to admit that he loves her back. Then they kill some monsters, get intimate, and profess their undying, destined love, and manage to fundamentally change the rules of society in the name of true love.

    I would rank this book as an above average sample of this sub-par genre.

    Don't get me wrong, there were a lot interesting and unique elements to this book. But, they were set against a generic romance plot that has been done a thousand times over. I found it enjoyable, as I needed a light distraction, but my tolerance for finding this sort of book while browsing the Fantasy section is getting real low.

    If you think you might enjoy this sort of pulp fiction, or are a fan of the genre already, I would definitely recommend this book. Otherwise, don't bother buying it. I'm sure your local library has at least five audiobooks just like this one, and once you've read one, you've read them all.

    Scattered across a continent, three dragon siblings are among the last of a dying breed -the final hope for their species' survival. After fighting a war that cost each of them kingdom and land, friends and family, honor and glory, they have removed themselves from the troubles of the world. But the order they fought to establish is falling apart. Ancient sorceries have been awakened. Dragons battle dragons. And men are taking up arms against their winged overlords. The author of the national best-selling Vampire Earth series presents the fiery conclusion to his epic dragon saga.

    Robin says: "A disappointing ending to a pretty good series."

    Story

    Unfortunately, all I'll be able to remember from this series is the mutilations and mutations. The perversion of all that was built in the previous books overshadows a mediocre ending. It will be a while until I can re-read this series, even though I adored this books predecessors.

    Story

    This was a good book, but frustrating since I suspected most of what would happen 15 minutes or more ahead of time and the waiting for it actually to occur was infuriating. In the end, however, it is the execution that matters and the book was well written in that respect. If you enjoyed the first book, you should definitely listen to this one.

    This volume in the series is kind of depressing and has so little closure that you might want to skip it and figure out the basics from the next book. But if you have the time, this book is a fair addition to the series.
