I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.

    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

    I would say this book is for those listeners who like the truly odd. It wasn't what I expected, nor what I would have been able to guess the book would be about. It was refreshing. It was unexpected. It was hilarious (one of the things I like most about a book). And, it even had a little romance thrown in. The main character kicks butt and rocks! Yay!

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    Story

    Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman might just be the best combination of author and narrator I've ever heard. This story is amazing! And, I've listened to the other books before this one too. But together the combination of voice variety, humor, and making the story line come alive surpasses anything I have heard up to now. And, I don't think its easy to do this at all, but it seems like Oliver really understands the ins and outs of all the characters and makes them come alive. I felt like I was right there in the story as I listened along.The quality Oliver gives to each characters voices is so good it's unreal. More like a movie than a book. Great stuff, can't put if down. Keep 'em coming! I've become a real fan. I would really recommend this book, but not for the young or the squeamish.

    In Chicago, someone has been killing practitioners of magic, those incapable of becoming full-fledged wizards. Shockingly, all the evidence points to Harry Dresden's half brother, Thomas, as the murderer. Determined to clear his sibling's name, Harry uncovers a conspiracy within the White Council of Wizards that threatens not only him, but his nearest and dearest, too.

    As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett's secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city's unearthly underworld.

    Loved the different type of plot. I had read the other two books of this series and just had to find out how it all ended. It didn't disappoint. I couldn't put it down until the last word. The ending was unexpected too. But I liked it and would recommend it.

    Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago. Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to.

    Story

    Story's concept was a great departure from the usual. I really liked this. But the story altogether was not so good. It did have a few great parts, but it just didn't flow too well. Toward the end of the book the action jumped so much from chapter to chapter, I kept rewinding to see if I accidentally missed something. Nope, the author just decided to jump ahead to someplace else. The romance was pretty good though.

    An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right. Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

    While not going to spoil the book for those who haven't listened, this was kind of a departure from the norm. It was different and pleasant. There are some surprising new characters in the story. Mercy's reactions to them were hilarious. I like this book and wish the next installment wouldn't take so long to come out.

    Elena Klovis was supposed to be her kingdom's Cinderella - until an accident of fate left her with a completely inappropriate prince! Determined not to remain with her stepfamily, Elena set out to get a new job - and ended up becoming the Fairy Godmother for the land. But "Breaking with Tradition" was no easy matter. True, she didn't have to sleep in the chimney, but she had to deal with arrogant, stuffed-shirt princes who kept trying to rise above their place in the tale.

    I had no ideal I would be lost, if I didn't buy the first book. So I have to get it before I can honestly decide whether this is good or not. The narrator's voice is so squeaky, I'm not sure I can stand it. At first I thought I was listening to a teenage boy whose voice was changing, but no I think that a girl, just a really, really nasal and squeaky voice. This one may be going back . . .
