    Jane, a shapeshifting vampire-hunter-for-hire, crosses paths with a stranger who has arrived in New Orleans, enlisted to hunt vampires who have gone insane - or so he says.

    If you could sum up Mercy Blade in three words, what would they be?

    Couldn't stop listening!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angie Baby because of her innocence. And yet.....she thinks like an adult when things get bad and she doesn't panic.


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

    YOU BET I HAVE!! Khristine Hvam is one of my very favorite narrators. I have several series she has done, and I will pick a new author just because she narrates. People have said that she sounds the same with all her voices. I disagree. Having listened to this series several times, I do hear the difference. The Cajun does need some help, buy otherwise, she is wonderful!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    OH!! I cried and laughed.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the reviews for Faith's books and I don't understand how anyone can bash her like a couple have. I know it is their opinion and they have a right to it. HOWEVER...don't be a hateful, especially if you don't have all the facts straight. Faith had over 15 books written before the Skinwalker series was started (she also writes suspense under the name Gwen Hunter). I'm just sayin'.

    In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from being her mortal enemy to becoming her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are under way against the Mageri, and one man is behind it-an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver's only concern, as someone close to her has been arrested for treason.

    Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She survived, saved by a stranger who witnessed her undergo a physical transformation. That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body. Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order - an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires - Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan's hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire.

    GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead - or to whom.

    As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers--particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade--require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap in to a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening.

    Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he's wanted for almost nothing. He's never experienced love, however, and he's seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He's studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it. Until he meets Alayna Withers. Now, the games he's played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end.

    Would you listen to Hudson again? Why?

    Yes. Great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    After having read the Fixed series from Alayna's POV, it gave a new perspective reading from Hudsons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the gifts. You'll have to listen or read the book to know what I mean. I don't give spoilers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There are two sides to every story.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Hudson POV. I wish more authors would do this.
