    When Lily stumbles upon the well-built corpse of a local body builder - his neck broken by a barbell - the town's underlying racial tension begins to boil over. The white victim was somehow connected to two unsolved murders of black residents of Shakespeare - and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. But it is Lily herself who may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.

    These are fun quick reads. Being a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series I was thrilled to learn that I have heard of Lily Bard and Jack Leeds before even picking up the first Lily Bard book. Lily and Jack are introduced to Sookie first in Harris's "Dead as a Doornail". I think it would of been cool to see a Harper Connelly appearance as well. But anyway I did enjoy this book along with the entire series.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Story

    Unlike other books with this many installments, Harrison has been able to stay true to her characters and not get sidetracked by arbitrary story lines to keep the readers interested. Book 11 was just as good as book 11. Character development is one of the most important things i cherish in a book series. Harrison makes sure to touch on the lives and the changes in each of the people in her books.
    The only thing I don't like about this series is waiting for the next installment to be released. and that's just me being an impatient baby. Oh how I envy the person who is reading this series from book one to the latest for the first time. I remember when I first read "Dead Witch Walking". and how impressed I was. I have to admit I never actually held a paper copy of any of the books in this series, and really don't feel the need, in my mind Marguerite Gavin is Rachel Morgan. It's hard to listen to a great story with a narrator who doen't quite match the characters that he/she are reading about. Heck A great narrator can make even an average book better.
    So to sum up this review,(Appluse! Appluse, APPLUSE!!!) I aboslutely recommend not only Kim Harrisons "EVER AFTER" but all 10 books that came before.

    For centuries, the woods have been a pivotal part of the wonder and danger of fairy tales, for once you enter anything can happen. Elves, druids, fairies - who knows what you will find once you dare step into the forest?

Into the Woods brings together an enchanting mix of brand-new, never-before-published stories and tales from Harrison's beloved, best-selling Hollows series.

    Magic-wielding Churchwitch and secret addict Chess Putnam knows better than anyone just how high a price people are willing to pay for a chemical rush. But when someone with money to burn and a penchant for black magic starts tampering with Downside’s drug supply, Chess realizes that the unlucky customers are paying with their souls—and taking the innocent with them, as the magic-infused speed compels them to kill in the most gruesome ways possible.

    These books ar unbelievely brilliant! Stacia Kane is ingenious and Bahni Turpin brings Chess, Terrible and the story itself to life. I have listened and listened again to all of this series. Like Chess and her pills, I can't get enough of these books!

    FBI profiler Jace Valchek's ticket home from the twisted parallel universe where she's been called to duty hinges on the capture of serial killer Aristotle Stoker - and an alliance with a sorcerer known as Asher. The problem: Asher has joined forces with some of the most dangerous creatures Jace has ever encountered. The solution: There is none, without Asher's help. Jace's goal seems simple enough - to get her man, like always. But just hours after she arrives in Vegas, she's abducted....

    Story

    I love this series. The story line is funny, original and really ingenuous and Johanna Parker is AWESOME as a narrator. It takes place in a parallel universe where Vampires and other supernaturals make up most of the population leaving less the 10% human. But is regards to what another Audible Member wrote in their review about the genre of this book, I got a little confused when they mentioned this book was a romance. So I looked at the first book they have it classified as a Mystery / Thriller, yes and no, being there's these supernatural characters, oh and the alternate universe. It's more of a Sci-fi /Fantasy. Ok the 2nd book is classified as a Sci-Fi / Fantasy, The 3rd book, A Romance? And then the 4th book again back to the Mystery Thriller family. I feel very confident saying that all 4 four books (in the series as of now) all belong in the Sci-Fi / Fantasy catagory.

    Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hammered to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print, but the narration is half of what made this book so great. I couldn't imagine the print being better.I couldn't even imagine another narrator being better, Luke Daniels makes these books come alive in a fun and creative way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Besides the story being so good in itself, Kevin Hearne took a look at god, mythology, religion and the supernatural from what I consider to be a imaginative new perspective. I loved what he did with the historical mythology. And of course the relationship between Atticus and Oberon.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He brought so much energy to the book. He made the story his to tell. I loved the laughter, it seemed to real, especially when he was talking to Oberon. He really brought a mood setting while narrating. (If that makes sense). This are one of the best series I've ever listened to.


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

    The tag line would be- STAY HOME AND LISTEN TO THE AUDIOBOOK- I hate books made into movies.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly reccommend this series.

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    All I can say is if you're a fan of Molly Harper, you'll probably like this book. Honestly if I didn't know who the author was, I probably would of guessed Molly Harper, especially with Amanda Ronconi telling the tale. It's a "light romance, sci/fi fantasy, bonding girl friends, battle the bad guy, finding ones inter-strength" kind of story that hs the right touch of humor that I found myself llaughing out loud a few times. It's really worth the listen, especially if you are a Molly Harper fan.
