    Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013. Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close. If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

    I've read and listened to them all.. the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices... and this was by far and away the best. Moving, surprising and deep. Danial Sharman's narration did justice to a lovely, and well written story.

  • Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    This is such a fun listen! Wasn't sure I'd like it at first but Emily Gray's narration brings Alexia's quirky personality to life beautifully! I'm hooked and can't wait to listen to the next one in the series!

    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.

    Story

    I love this series! I love everything about it. It's witty, smart, clever and sometimes sarcastic. Only problem is... the books are over too soon! I plug in my headphones and it sin't long before I'm smiling, or laughing out loud. Makes a dreary day a little brighter.
    Kevin Hearne manages to twist mythology and "reality" into a clever tale and I love how he incorporates the Navajo mythology with the rest of his pantheon. The story is engaging on its own but Luke Daniels brings it to life like on one else could. He really seems to "get" the tale and knows just how to give it voice. I love Oberon and miss the widow, but I'm looking forward to the new characters we will meed in the next in the series!

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Story

    Ok, even though I read enough of the other reviews to know the narration was questionable, I decided I had to listen anyway to keep the series flow... I'm not sorry I used a credit, but I have to add my "thumbs down" to the narration. Maybe Ms Quinn's voice will mature and find some depth and range... maybe not. But she wasn't a good fit for this story. Ed Westwick is passable but maybe he should work on his "American accent" by watching something other than the Soprano's reruns or Jersey Shore. Honestly, I kept waiting for him to have Jace say something like, "fuggadaboutit."
    Ah well... this one will likely be a "listen to once" and put it away for good entry into my library.
    On to Book 5 - hope it's with a better cast!

    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....

    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    I've loved the Mistborn series and listened to the entire series straight through. This one didn't disappoint! I only wish it had been longer. Perfectly narrated by Michael Kramer. Looking forward to listening to the next one when it comes out.
