    Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he's supposed to be crowned Vampire King - while still a human! Well, kind of.

    Story

    Gena Showalter has yet to write a book that I didn't like, and this one held true to that. How any author's imagination can conjure up such amazing, deeply intriguing characters is beyond me---mind boggling to be exact. I must admit, however, that Initially the story was confusing for me; the many different characters introduced too haphazardly. And the narrator's voice grated my nerves. She sounded like a spoiled high school girl with an "I'm better than you are" attitude. She put too much feminine emotion into practically every word which did the male characters a true injustice, toning down their verocity and manliness (at least as much verocity and manliness you can expect from high school aged young men---boys??). Fortunately, there was enough going on with the constant twists and turns of the story to keep me captively engaged in spite of the narrator. I HAD TO KNOW HOW THINGS WERE GOING TO TURN OUT! The ending was not quite as I hoped because it left me still wondering how the heros and heroins of the story would ultimately fair. But to the author's credit, the ending piqued my curiousity enough to ensure I would purchase and read the next book. On another note, I found this book listed in the "paranormal romance" category, but for me it was a slam dunk for the paranormal and lacked substance for a romance rating (and dammit, at least a smidgent of sex would have been nice!). But all in all, the book still merits my 4-star rating.

    Dani "Mega" O’Malley plays by her own set of rules - and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the few humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

    Story

    This book is action packed from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed Moning's Fever series about MacKayla and this continuation about Dani is equally good. There's a lot going on in this book as the story takes many unpredictable turns. It's exciting, humorous, dangerous, and sets the stage for some deliciously interesting relationships in the next books. I impatiently await the next release! I highly encourage readers/listeners to purchase this book. In fact you just can't go wrong with the purchase of any of Karen Marie Moning books! THEY"RE ALL THAT GOOD!!!

    Some feelings you just can't fight. He is known as the Warrior Captain - a master of every weapon, a fierce soldier sworn to protect his kind. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has always won every battle he's ever taken on - until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow: Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen.

    Yes, I have listened to other books in the Nightwalker series and I absolutely love this narrator.

    As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gideon to be better than the print version?

    Audio edition is great; but I'm sure I would have enjoyed the printed version too because the story was so good.


    What other book might you compare Gideon to and why?

    All the Nightwalker Series are comparably excellent to listen to.


    Which character – as performed by Xe Sands – was your favorite?

    Gideon!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I wanted to listen to it in all one sitting; however, I would have then been disappointed that it was too short.


    Any additional comments?

    Purchase the Nightwalker series.

    The long-awaited sequel to Rejar. He was full-blooded and untamable. Sensual and sinuous. Erotically magnetic. A uniquely beautiful creature who could make himself irresistible to women. And he was feral at heart. With his glittering green and gold eyes, silken hair, and purring voice, the stunning captive chained to the wall was exactly what Jenise needed. And he was hers to take...Or so she believed. But she had never heard how dangerous it was to lie down with the cat.

    Story

    The male characters in this series are seriously delicious. They know what they want and go after it with a confidence that can't be matched and a will that brooks no argument. Like the two books preceding this one, the storyline in this book is quite entertaining. The intimate scenes are sexually arousing, yet tastefully descriptive. I've thoroughly enjoyed all three books in this series thus far!

    On a quest to find her sister's killer, Mac is a major player in a deadly game, but with one great advantage: she knows how to find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient book of magic so dark it corrupts anyone who touches it. What Mac soon discovers is worse than she had imagined. Surrounded by treachery, her enemies indistinguishable from her allies, she can be certain of only one thing: as All Hallows' Eve approaches, her time is running out.

    I read the whole Fever series and enjoyed each book. I must admit that in the beginning of the series I was a bit disappointed in the lack of steamy sex and romance; but the storyline was still strong enough to keep me flipping the pages and eager for the next book. Overall, I absolutely loved how the sex and romance began to build and get stronger throughout the series, without deteriorating the story. A truly wonderful read!
