    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

    What disappointed you about Blood and Bullets?

    I'm so good looking, look at all my tats. look at my muscles'.


    What was most disappointing about James R Tuck’s story?

    This had an interesting story line, I just couldn't stomach listening to him tell me over and
    over about his great body. his tattoos . what a bass ass he is.
    It just got really boring.
    Then this very old and powerful vampier just lets everyone go so she can explore him


    Have you listened to any of Jim Beaver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


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

    A remote military research station sends out a frantic distress call, ending with a chilling final command: Kill us all! Personnel from the neighboring base rush in to discover everyone already dead - and not just the scientists, but every living thing for 50 square miles is annihilated: every animal, plant, and insect, even bacteria. The land is entirely sterile - and the blight is spreading. To halt the inevitable, Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma must unravel a threat that rises out of the distant past.

    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.

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.
