    Story

    OMG - I was not expecting this. It was just ... sooooooooooo ... good! There was nothing about this book I didn't enjoy. Twisted Arthur, the Arcana, the death card, and the final showdown. Then, of course, there's Jackson. I want a bit of 'ol Jack. I want him to speak Cajun French to me!!!!

    This was a great start to what should be a SPECTACULAR series. I hope it's a long one. It was expertly paced and painted such a great picture of a post-apoloclypic world. I'm dying for more of the Arcana!


    NARRATION:

    Emma Galvin is a fantastic narrator. She doesn't just read, she's completely "in it." She makes me feel like she's really there, feeling and seeing everything. I loved her from the Divergent series and she does another fantastical, spectacular job. She's one of my favorites, no doubt.

    I really enjoyed Keith Nobbs too. My first experience with him, definitely not the last! Hope I can find some solo narration jobs of his.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to see Molly explore a different type of supernatural. One my favorites actually; I love witches and in this dystopian era of storytelling, you don't really see too much of them.

    I really liked Nola. She's definitely one of my favorite Harper heroines. This was definitely one of the best books Harper has written. The mystery was laid out in a great way. Lots of little twists and turns. I really enjoyed that. Most of all, I really like that Harper never left Half Moon Hallow. It's definitely a place I would enjoy living, if only I could. I do like how new characters come along and tell new stories, and you get to experience the whole gang all over again. It's really cool to see everyone - Jane, Andrea and Dick Cheney - from somebody else's eyes.

    It was enjoyable all around. Two thumbs way up. Fine holiday fun!

    Story

    So far, in my limited experience of fairy tale retellings, Meyer has been top notch. She's done more with the story than just make it something slightly new. She's created this crazy advance fairytale world with cyborgs, advanced technologies and data chip, and an insane Lunar race that can read your mind and infiltrate your thoughts. It makes for a wonderfully spectacular reading experience.

    Now, getting into the story, this one of course is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Definitely not one of my favorite fairytales. However, the wave that Meyer has told the story has made it definitely made me rethink my opinion. Scarlet and Wolf definitely had one crazy adventure to "Grandma's House". I really liked Wolf. He was all sexy but tortured and damaged, and these days, that seems to be how I like my book boyfriends, lol. I liked the twist on who he was and how he fit into the story. But I did have issues with Scarlet. She was just too much - too strong, too determined, too hard-headed and too annoying.

    I definitely will be continuing the series and I think it might be just one of my favorites. Nice job, Meyer.

    Rebecca Soler is a great narrator. As soon as I find an interesting premise, I'd be happy for her to take me on another ride.

    Story

    Is there a review for such a tale? You just dive in and the whole world is there for you to learn about. All of the story threads were fantastic and it fit together so well. It read like a fairytale, but had the elements of an adult story that made it all the more enjoyable after a beat. i have to admit, I didn't know it was intended as a "fairytale for adults", so the first sex scene caught me a bit off guard. But, I didn't mind it as the story got on. I did enjoy the prose in which he wrote. It gave the story it's magic, drawing you in.

    The only issue i had - and it kind of was a big one - was the major love story. For me it just never really developed enough for it to be believable for me. But, I liked it in the end.

    Neil Gaiman doing the narration definitely made this audiobook stellar. So good.

    Overall, it was a somwhat interesting read. I was mostly engaged and interested in how it was going to end. That said, once I got to the end, I was kind of like, :hmmm". I don't think that it wasn't a good book, just not really my cup of tea.

    I did, to a point, like both Peter and Tiger Lily. I think they were both interesting characters.

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.

    Story

    I didn't like the book in the beginning. When i started the book, I wasn't sure how I feel about this story. I, for one, don't really get Abby's appeal. Especially when it comes to Travis. I mean, I understand that he obviously was attracted to her from the start. But I wasn't sure what kept him coming back. And being so willing to help her in the beginning of the story. She was like on a crazy mood swing teeder-toddler. But then, same goes for Travis. His desperation for Abby to like him and not leave is odd. I guess I want to know what the deal is faster.

    I didn't really get into the story until about halfway through. Then, i started to really like Travis as a character. He had a very extreme personality and there was something very Pan-like about him. Yes, I mean Peter Pan. He was fierce and he was strong but very, very vulnerable too. I really felt for him because Abby really put him through the ringer. She even had my head spinning through the whole story and it was told from her perspective. However - his behavior was a bit too extreme at times. And damn - what a temper he had.

    I will be reading the next book though. I can't wait to read Walking Disaster and here what Travis has to say... the man behind the myth. Excited.

    On another note, Emma Galvin was perfect, as always. She's one of my favorite narrators.

Throughout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini's legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly awaited 12th book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy-Changeling mystery - an answer so surprising we wouldn't dare spoil it. Even if we knew.

    Nalini Singh is a master at bringing two people together in the most darkly, beautiful ways. With this book, the story is so far removed from the entire world. So isolated. You don't see, or hear, much of anyone else. It's just him and her while the whole world is falling down around them. The setting beautifully emulates their feelings toward each other. The simplicity made the perfect setting. It's so beautiful; I never felt like anything more was needed. I won't spoil anything for anyone. If you're even a teensy bit of a Psy/Changeling fan - this is a must read.

    I just love this book so much. It's a masterpiece. The darkest love story I have come across and it's just perfect. Truly amazing!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Harkness is a master storytelling; the world was rich and full of color. What you could also appreciate was how everything that the character's loved was shown, not told. I learned about wine as Matthew explained it and fell in love with the beauty of alchemical manuscripts as Diana read them. Brilliantly done.

    I just wish this much care was put into the actual plot... For it to be as long as it was... not much happened. I've heard someone say that this was the adult Twilight. I agree - and that's not a good thing. Not at all...

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    This one was quite intresting. Not saying I liked or disliked it; I'm somewhere in between.

    But first, let me say that I do prefer "Alive Harry" to "Dead Harry." Having a "sit back and watch" Dresden was, in fact, not cool. I didn't like seeing him in such a passive role. I'm my head I kept screaming for him to do something, and I just couldn't rectify him being dead as a viable reason for him to not do things. It just didn't work. Then of course there's the "Chicago without Dresden" backdrop. Karrin was more annoying; Molly was eh; I absolutely what happened with Bob...

    But I was happy with the resolution. I was shocked, floored actually, to learn who killed Dresden. Didn't see that coming.

After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Story

    I spent my New Years Eve/Day listening to Cold Days. Pretty much 16 hours straight. Time well worth it. This is undoubtably not only my favorite book of the series (sorry Changes) - it's is my favorite book of the year.

    Everything I love about Harry Dresden can be found in this book. And the surprises/plot twists - i've never gasped so much in my reading life. I mean holy crap. It's one thing for a book to be great. It's one thing for a series to be excellent. But for the main character/storyline to still be this damn thrilling & thought-provoking 14 books in is a major achievement.

    What got me the most is that there have been characters who I've never liked - and by the end of this book, I not only understood but liked & respect by the end of this book.

    I will not start breaking this apart. What I will say is that I'm very very very VERY excited to see what is coming next. And hope that it's already halfway finished cuz I really don't want to wait a year for the next one - or gulp - even longer.Long live Harry effing Dresden!!!!

    It's also fantastic to have James Marsters back. Love his narration!

    It was pretty slow in the beginning. But by then end of the book I was fully engrossed. I really like the story. The world is pretty interesting too. I like that Cat is a tough girl. It's nice to see a strong female lead actually act like one; I hate when they're too moralistic or get conflicted all the time. Annoying.

    I like Bones. He's pretty awesome. Like the Cockney accent Gilbert uses. She's a great narrator.
