    Nicholas Argeneau was once a successful hunter who went after rogue vampires who broke the immortal law. Except no one has mentioned his name in the last fifty years, not since he turned into a rogue himself. But once a hunter, always a hunter. When Nicholas sees a bloodthirsty sucker terrifying a woman, it's second nature for him to come to her rescue. He had no idea he would also want to kiss her senseless.

    Finally, a decent narrator for this series! Kirby Heyborne is a new narrator for me but definitely goes to the top of the list.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    Story

    Rachel is a heroine we all love because she is just so bad at it! In a good way, of course. She spends an inordinate amount of time saying "I'm sorry", but in the end, she gets the job done.

    Without delivering any spoilers, I was very relieved when I finally got to the end of the book. I would have been very sad if it had ended any other way.

    They are England's most eligible bachelors, with the most scandalous reputations. But for the right woman, even an unrepentant rogue may mend his ways…Lady Grace Mabry's ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her…or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of Lovingdon? With no interest in marriage, Lovingdon has long lived only for pleasure. He sees little harm in helping Grace find a proper match.

    Story

    After enjoying the Scoundrels of St. James series, I had very high hopes for this 2nd generation book. What a disappointment!

    This book lacks any depth of story or character development. In addition, the narrator makes the characters seem like characters in a romance novel rather than possible real people. (Susan Ericksen did a much better job.)

    At first, I listened to the reviews and downloaded this book on my Nook instead of suffering through a horrible narration. The written version was very enjoyable.

    Then, I caved and bought the audio version. Worst. Idea. Ever.

    I couldn't even listen to it. Horrible narration.

    The book IS good, though, so I hate that so many are missing out on enjoying this episode due to poor narration.

    "Why me? Why now?" That’s what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure.

    This book makes me think of Eve Dallas (In Death series by JD Robb), gone paranormal. I've enjoyed the story and the narrator's performance so much that I've downloaded the whole series in the last 5 days.

    The story isn't complex, but the vocabulary level is slightly above average when compared to similar others in this genre. At the same time, the "F word" is used frequently. I found that a strange but charming paradox.

    I think this is my first experience with narrator, Liv Anderson, but her voice is calm and well-paced.

    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.

    Story

    I vowed that I would never purchase another Anita Blake book and I wished I had listened to myself. Poor Anita. She used to be a heroine, but now she's just a pathetic, big-boobed, un-likeable, female (can't think of a better noun) who can't decide who to have sex with next.

    There is no doubt that Laurell Hamilton is a talented author, but holy poly-amorous, paranormal characters, Batman! Can we stick to the plot, please?

    Seriously, how many law enforcement officers do YOU know who spend this much time talking about sex? How does she get any work done when every, single time she enters a new station, she has to do the whole I-don't-want-them-to-know-but-I'm-going-to-do-everything-I-can-to-out-myself routine? There was even one scene where they spent a good 10 minutes discussing Anita's love life, but when the love life of the other woman in the room came up, that discussion was shut down with a simple, "That's none of your business."

    Sadly, the actual story underneath all of the unnecessary crap is interesting, but there are other authors out there who can do paranormal that is just as interesting without including all of the stuff that is really none of our business.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    The Molly Harper that we know and love incorporates a more serious plot-line in this book and is able to do it with good humor and without minimizing the seriousness of the overall situation. Her one-liners are just the best!

    The narrator, Amanda Ronconi, occasionally grates on my nerves, but did an OK job.

Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household, both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this one, because the Oracle seemed a little rough in the last book, but I was so wrong! The characters are a little different in this book, but still very well developed and interesting. (Does anyone else envision Tom Hiddleston as Khalil?)

    Sophie Eastlake does another outstanding job performing this book. Chloe's voice is adorable and I literally laughed out loud during the dialog between Khalil and Rune. Dude.

    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.

    Story

    After looking forward to this book for ages, I feel completely let down. Boring and redundant would be my best description. It didn't feel like it was even written by the same author.

    On top of that, I wasn't crazy about the narrator. He did an OK job with the accents, but Tessa sounded rote and mechanical. I literally fell asleep TWICE during the first couple of chapters.

    I honestly could not wait to get to the ending, which seemed to take an unnecessary amount of time. The "I love that one, but I also love the other one" line got really boring!

    The first two books were very enjoyable but this installment falls way short of expectation.

Travel to Fisher's Cove, Nova Scotia, where Moira is matriarch and the old ways are nurtured and passed to the next generation. Where a crotchety old witch makes small children cry and builds walls around the silent pain in his heart. And where Elorie - sea-glass artist, inn owner, and Moira's granddaughter - makes her home.
