    Newly made vampire Anna has become a Watcher - one of the supernatural world's enforcers - even as she fights to control her vampiric rage. When a series of very dangerous events threatens to draw out her unstable powers, her Watcher mentor sends her away for her own safety. But if there's one thing Anna has always been able to find, it's trouble.

    I've now listened to the first 6 books of the Anna Strong series and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Each one is a new adventure and Dina Pearlman never fails to bring the characters to life and keep you enthralled. On more than one occasion I was tempted to take my Ipod into the car to listen on the way to work. I highly recommend them all.

    "Vampires in Chicago! You'd think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, 10 months later, we're enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite - fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross- and stake-wielding slayers. Don't get me wrong. Joe Public isn't exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they haven't stormed the castle...yet."

    Story

    I agree wholeheartedly with a review written by Jennifer. It's unfortunate the publisher chose to put forth an impression of romance and sex rather than truly reflect the content of this series. It isn't fluff by any means. I've listened to the first couple of books in the series so far (downloading the next as I write this) but was totally hooked after the first one. When I listen I want to escape day to day reality, and move into a world where I think "could this actually happen?" I want to go to a place in the believable realm of imagination and this series is totally meeting that need. Its full of action, mystery and yes, there is a romantic undercurrent but it doesn't overshadow the story. I hope it continues in the same vein and thoroughly look forward to each new book in the series.

    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.

    Story

    When I first started listening to this book I was concerned it was not going to be a good one. The narrator was good but it's a bit slow starting. I wanted to be sure to write this review so everyone would hang in there and not miss an excellent book because before you know it, you're hooked. It's a great story, great narration, and thoroughly enjoyable. Only one real complaint and that is the ending. It's obviously leading into a sequel but you will be a little frustrated because there are so many directions it can go from the point it ends. I haven't looked into the sequel yet but I know there will be one. I HAVE to know what happens next and you will too. Enjoy, it's a great book.

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Story

    This is an incredible series of books. I've come to truly appreciate how critical the narrator is to an audio version of a story no matter how wonderful the written version may be. This narrator makes you see what's going on and feel the fun and horror of the story. I have become totally immersed each time and look forward to each episode with great anticipation. A stellar performance each time and wonderful story lines make this series one you shouldn't miss.
