This series has had its ups and downs, but we're on an upswing with this one and the last few. These books have always been fairly dark, and this one is no different. I really enjoyed the camaraderie within her department, seeing Roarke's family and their effect on both Eve and Roarke and the bits with Nixie are excellent. This one was pretty great. Susan Ericksen is as awesome as ever, audio is the way to go with this series.
This book was entertaining. Yes, the series has become pretty predictable but it still makes me laugh out loud. I enjoy when Ranger's cars get blown up and/or totaled. I like when Bella gives Stephanie the eye. I like that there is a love triangle. Joe and Ranger are great characters and if Stephanie finally picks one, the other will probably fade away or maybe get his own series. King does her usual great job. I can't imagine anyone else as Stephanie.
What ending could be worse than Lorelei waking up to find it had all been a dream? This ending. I have thought that this series was kind of meh but I am a big fan of Lorelei King and was intrigued by the premise of the books enough to keep at this. Big mistake. I thought Lorelei was a whiner the first two books and she just gets worse. Every other thought in her head is how she knows she can't stop what's coming and how she'd give anything to not be the prophet. It's one big pity party. She is worse than Bella in Twilight as far as being an anti heroine and sucking it up goes. At least Bella found her big girl pants in the end. Lorelei does not. Lorelei King is a great narrator but it was still hard to listen to. If I hadn't known it was the last in the series I would've given up and stopped listening, but I was hoping Jones would create an amazing ending as she is prone to do. Nope. Pity party, cop out ending. Ugh.
Ugh, now I have to wait forever until the next book comes out. I love Madame Geraldine's! Carriger outdid herself with this book. Great story, great writing, great characters. You also get a glimpse of characters from the Parasol Protectorate. Quirk does with this series what Emily Gray did with the Parasol Protectorate series. This is an awesome book!
I liked the book overall. The fact that all the story lines were all tied together made it an unbelievable, but interesting story. I think Reichs wrote it that way so that Pete could play a bigger role in the next one? It will be interesting to see what's next for the Tempe, Pete and Ryan triangle. It's a solid addition to the series- not the best, not the worst, and it kept my interest throughout. Emond does a pretty good job. Her narration kind of throws you off in the beginning because she's so blunt but it kind of grows on you because how else do you voice Tempe?
Okay, this is not my favorite in the series. Having said that, it still beats the pants off of a lot of books out there. Gabaldon is an amazing story teller and Porter is an awesome narrator. I have read and re-read the books and listened and listened again to the audiobooks. This is an amazing series and I am so thankful to the stranger who recommended the books to me.
I really wanted to like this. The premise of the book is so exciting and I wanted to like this in audio form because I feel, in some cases audio makes the experience so much better. First, I didn't understand why a man was narrating when the protagonist is a woman. Second, I couldn't get over how fast he was reading. I'm sure that it makes sense and it's probably because of the frenetic pace of the industry and the people and so on, but I had to stop listening. I tried 3 times to listen but couldn't get through it. I think I'll be buying the hard copy.
I liked this one a lot. You can tell it's an early Krewe book because it doesn't follow the Krewe book "formula" exactly, but it's pretty close. I liked that Sam wasn't as hard headed as the normal non FBI protagonists tend to be. The whole witch trial/Salem at Halloween was kind of cool. If you're a Graham/Krewe fan you will like this one. Luke Daniels does a great job as narrator.
This one is probably my favorite so far. I like Graham's formula for the Krewe books, but she makes her non FBI protagonists so hard headed. They dig in to the point of stupidity. That aside, I really liked this one. The story was interesting and I liked that there were ghosts from the past and the present. Luke Daniels did a great job. If you're a fan of the Krewe and Graham, I highly recommend this one.
I like the Krewe books. Heather Graham has a good formula going for her with these books. I really liked this story. I realize that real pirates are bad, but I like fictional pirates a lot- I blame Johnny Depp. The only thing is that Abby kind of whines a lot, you get over it but when she strings more than 5 sentences together it's kind of like nails on a chalkboard. The good news is that it's more Mal's book than hers so he's the focus of the book. Luke Daniels does a great job, as usual.
This book was great! The story was interesting- Crow is an awesome bad guy! I got about an hour and a half into it and had to stop because I was really upset at what was happening in the book. That's how good it is- I've been completely drawn into this book and its characters. Correia is a genius. Pinchot is one of my favorite narrators. My only complaint is his Jane voice is different in this book than it was in the last book. Overall, an awesome book.
