    Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death - a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

    Overall

    I listened to the first book in the series and while not blown-away thought there was at least enough to the story to try the second in the series. I like the puzzle of trying to figure out how things can end "happily ever after". And while this book, also, had me trying to guess how it would end, the story line was at best weak and it seemed as though the author thought that by throwing in enough "sexually explicit" encounters we would ignore the fact that the writing was weak and the heart of the story weaker. I do, however, like the narrator who in my opinion managed to at least make what there was of a story enjoyable.

    Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    "Great listen!!"
    Overall

    If you're into this type of genre then this is a great listen. The author writes a great story and the narrator is the best I've heard, yet. Truly enjoyable!

    Aidan, the Wolf of Awe, has abandoned the Brotherhood and forsaken his vows. Feared by all and trusted by none, he hunts alone, seeking vengeance against the evil that destroyed his son. He has not saved an Innocent in 66 years - until he hears Brianna Rose's scream of terror across centuries, and leaps to modern-day Manhattan to rescue her....

    Robin says: "Fuhgedda boud it"
    "really weak heroine"
    Overall

    interesting storyline, but weakly held together... heroine could be strong and empathetic at the same time instead she just comes across as weak
