    Story

    1870. A time known as The Great Killing. The vampire clans arose and slaughtered humanity with unprecedented carnage in the northern parts of the world. Millions perished; millions were turned into herd animals. The great industrialized civilizations of the world were left in ruin. A remnant fled south to the safety of the ever present heat which was intolerable to vampires. There, blending with the local peoples, they rebuilt their societies founded on human ingenuity, steam and iron.

    Story
    Would you listen to Vampire Empire - The Greyfriar again? Why?

    No. The story was predictable. And I really didn't find the characters intriguing or particularly likable. I always enjoy Marsters, but do not feel this book was "full" enough to take advantage of his excellent range.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marsters does an excellent job of giving the characters different voices, but I missed how he can deliver humorous dialogue, simply because there was no humor in this story.


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

    No. All in all, I felt it was an average story, narrated as well as it could have been.

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Tried this book to fill the time until the new Dresden comes out, but I am now on book 4 of this series! The only problem is, my husband keeps interrupting me with trivial things like conversation and I am losing sleep because I want to know what happens next.
    The narration is excellent and I sure hope the powers that be don't change narrators on down the line like they did with the last Dresden book-disappointing!
    The characters are well developed and interesting and each book has left me wanting more.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    I have enjoyed this whole series and I'm very anxious for the next book to come out!
    If you haven't started this series, I highly recommend it.
