    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The main character seems to be the author's mid-life crisis... a brilliant, humble, giant sharpshooting blackbelt. Disappointing, as the big ideas underlying the story are good. This seems to be written by an active-duty service member during his off hours, if the loving descriptions of armaments are any indication.


    What was most disappointing about Larry Correia’s story?

    The characters were poorly fleshed out.

    Try Hard Magic, much better!

    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 did you love best about Hounded?

    Oberon. How can you go wrong with a wolfhound as one of your main characters? Especially when he gets invested in a different historical figure in each book?


    Any additional comments?

    As much as I enjoy these books for being set in my hometown, and wish to support the local author, the books seem to convey a lesson that women are all evil and dangerous. Every female character we come across (with one exception so far, and I have not yet read Tricked, though I have a really bad feeling) is untrustworthy, manipulative, looking to further her own agenda by illicit means. Too bad.

    Raylene Pendle (AKA Cheshire Red), a vampire and world-renowned thief, doesn’t usually hang with her own kind. She’s too busy stealing priceless art and rare jewels. But when the infuriatingly charming Ian Stott asks for help, Raylene finds him impossible to resist - even though Ian doesn’t want precious artifacts. He wants her to retrieve missing government files: documents that deal with the secret biological experiments that left Ian blind. What Raylene doesn’t bargain for is a case that takes her from the frozen outskirts of Minneapolis to the mean streets of Atlanta.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent series, comfortable end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characters are interesting and clever, and quite definitively British. There is not one that jumps out as a favorite as the cast is wide ranging. John goes out and talks with everyone in town.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this series, much of the Drood series, Ghost of a chance, and the Deathstalker series, I recommend this as his best work. The others are a little too light, or too dark - this one is just right.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The best part of these books is Ivy. The author's use of her voice highlight the absurd in polite society has me cracking up every time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blameless?

    The protagonist's forthright manner and prosaic attitude make nearly all her battles and chases entertaining.
