    It's hard to give peace a chance when the other side regards conquest as the only option and a sneak attack as the best means to that end. That's why the Kingdom of Manticore needs allies against the Republic of Haven, and the planet Grayson is strategically situated to make a very good ally indeed. But Her Majesty’s Foreign Office overlooked a “minor cultural difference” when they chose Honor Harrington to carry the flag: women on the planet of Grayson are without rank or rights and Honor’s mere presence is an intolerable affront to every male on the planet.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    The book was fun as all of Molly Harper's books. Amanda Roncini's narration was great and the southern drawls are nice & slow, but I thought the Boston/Irish accent a little off. The Boston words (with the missing "R"s) seemed to jump out at me and made me lose my focus on the story.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    I'm hooked -- I can't wait for my next credits so I can get the 2nd book. So much history packed in this book but it wasn't boring. The narration was good & I liked the subtle French accents. Sometimes I had a little trouble following some of the new character voices near the end of the book, but I enjoyed listening.

    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 think the narrator, Luke Daniels, enjoys voicing the different characters, especially the non-human, very much. He has enhanced a fun, very enjoyable story (series) and added another layer to their personalities.

    The books put colourful pictures in my head & they have a great soundtrack too!

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    What made the experience of listening to Hounded the most enjoyable?

    Great story fitting a 2000 year old druid into modern times. Listening to the stories of how things have changed.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Loved the dog Oberon. He sounded just like you would expect - if dogs could talk.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I can't listen to these books at work with headphones anymore because I laugh out loud too often.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    I love listening to this series. It's unfortunate that there is a different narrator for this book, but John Glover did a great job. The only problem I had was that I listened to this book immediately after the previous & I had a harder time following the characters.

    The book (& series) is great & the narration is top-notch (just a bit different)!

    The narrator, Allyson Johnson, has done a fantastic job -- although it must have felt more like narrating a technical manual rather than a novel ;)

    I read & enjoyed some of this series years (& years) ago and it is wonderful to be able to listen to them. There are many characters and they are all voiced uniquely and very easy to follow.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    It was wonderful listening to the different characters -- they were all unique with just enough of a New Jersey accent to make them come alive, but not too much to be annoying. I've read the books & saw the movie, but I really enjoyed listening and can't wait to get the rest of the series.

    I've read the books, so I knew the story line. I enjoyed listening to this first book & will definately get the rest. I only had one problem with this audio book -- there were occasional, random sounds in the background. I think they were meant to enhance the story, but they were annoying. They would appear at odd times, play for a minute or so & then stop -- but I couldn't figure out the pattern.

Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written - together in one volume. The stories include "Fairy Dust", "One Word Answer", "Dracula Night", "Lucky" and "Giftwrap".
