    It’s Gin Blanco's party - and you’ll cry if she wants you to. Against her better judgment, Gin is coerced into attending a high-society gala with the rest of Ashland's elite underworld. On display: the priceless art collection of her deceased nemesis, Mab Monroe, and an excess of crime-boss swagger. While not comfortable in her fancy attire, Gin gets vastly more interested in the evening’s events when a group of thieves bursts in and tries to seize the valuable, dangerous gems.

    I so loved this series. I have read all the Elemental Assassin books and this is one of my favorites. I'm so glad that the ending was a complete surprise. I listened to the book all night and got no sleep. I just hope that Gin and Owen will make it work. I love that she is not still hung up on that dumb police officer from a few books ago. I disliked his character so much I don't even want to give him a name.

    Loved it and the narration was just great.

    Would you try another book from Christopher Moore and/or Susan Bennett?

    The story was really good but the voice ing wasn't.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bloodsucking Fiends?

    The beginning when she was discovering what she has become. And her first blood drinking.


    Did Susan Bennett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No I'm sorry but Susan was a bit on the flat side and each character sounded pretty much the same.


    Was Bloodsucking Fiends worth the listening time?

    I would have been a better read on paperback.

    Being a Girl with Glasses isn't just a style choice; it's a way of life. If you've ever had your specs steam up when walking into a bar, squinted into the sun on the soccer field, or laid eyes on a new haircut only after your locks are strewn across the floor, you know what it's like to be a GWG. Marissa Walsh has worn glasses since third grade. Now - 10 pairs of glasses, one pair of prescription sunglasses, and endless pairs of contacts later - she has fully embraced her four-eyed fate.

    I can identify with some of the book descriptions on how getting new glasses makes you feel. However, the book didn't leave a lasting impression. It was just ok.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Story

    This book was too short. I'm so ready for the next one! Oberon is my favorite character I know it's silly but he is. Every time I though I knew what was about to happen I was surprised especially since the people that died where not the ones I thought would die. Just wish that more detail was given then the iron was killing fairies as the reason for so much hatred. For me that part was a little rushed but either way I loved it.

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    This is the Anita I know and love but a little more grown up. I like that this book is starting to close off some of the lose ends cause it was getting a heavy handed with the so many people and story lines. I felt like it was starting to create spinoff characters which didn't always fit with the story we where reading. I've never had a problem with the sex scenes and I still don't. I hope that the next book keeps adding to the main relationship like this one did and doesn't' create more side action till the main setup is straight.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    The stories all played to the theme really well. There was really only one story that I just didn't like.

    There where stories from Kevin Hearne and Jennifer Estep both authors that I really love. My one grip was that for my fav authors stories I wish that the narrators for their series had been used cause they have a better sense for the characters they are reading about and listeners already relate to them.

    I also found a couple of stories that made me want to see what some of the authors have out. This was a pretty good listen.
