    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    Where does A Perfect Blood rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    So So. But it's been a while since I've heard a good book. Seems as if they are just putting out books just to have one out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

    Yes I'll continue to follow this series. Maybe this is a transition story and the next will develop new twists. Al and the children, Rachael not so much of a wimp. Jinx and the fairy. Will be interesting to see.


    Which character ??? as performed by Marguerite Gavin ??? was your favorite?

    Any character covered by Marguerite Gavin


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

    No I had to take breaks. Rachael's sheer stupidity made me nuts.


    Any additional comments?

    Will get the next and see if it is any better. If the same it will be the death of a good series

    Her job description is the "tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers". What this really means in FBI profiler Jace Valchek's brave new world - one in which only one percent of the population is human - is that a woman's work is never done. And real is getting stranger every day. Jace has been ripped from her reality by David Cassius, the vampire head of the NSA. He knows that she's the best there is in the business, and David needs her help in solving a series of gruesome murders of vampires and werewolves.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I felt that the narrator read the book fast. It was as if she was in a race to get to the end.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I enjoyed the story. Well developed characters.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. 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.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    What disappointed you about The Racketeer?

    Keep waiting for something to happen. It never did.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

    I don't think so, he seems to be fading

    Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

    Loved this and the others. Not sure what order they are to be read. Seems to be parts missing from one book to the next.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    Kickez says: "This is book 1 of the Argeneau Vampire Series"

    Overall

    The worst so far. Written like a grammer instructer. Not even close to the way people actually speak. Hate the narrator her breathlessness is truely horendess. Save your credits. Won't be listening to any thing else from this auther or narrator. This is the first time I've taken the time to write a review, but felt you should be warned.

    As a devastating hurricane approaches, as the benighted creations of Victor Helios begin to spin out of control, as New Orleans descends into chaos and the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the only hope rests with Victor's first, failed attempt to build the perfect human. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as the original manifestation of a soulless vision and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator.

    William says: "Frustrating"
    "Very let down"
    Overall

    I've been looking forward to this book. I agree with other who said it was dumb downed. I feel like parts were missed, that I had somehow missed something in book 2. If there is a #4 I won't be reading it.
