    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author MaryJanice Davidson’s tales featuring Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor are a perfect blend of humor, horror, and high fashion. In this 10th installment, Betsy finds herself puzzling over an unusual predicament. As the Vampire Queen, she believes she cannot die. So when she wakes in the morgue, it’s a bit confusing. Could it have something to do with her recent time-traveling excursion, or has a wicked enemy emerged who could be the end of Betsy once and for all?

    "Worse than the last one"
    Overall

    I was really looking forward to this book after the debacle of the last one but this one is even worse. As bad as the last one was at least it had some action throughout. Part of the charm that captured originally me was Betsy's dtizeness (I know that's not a word). She would lose focus and go off topic. It was fun. In this book it went way to far. It seems like the author didn't have enough content for a full book so she had to add more and more nonsense dialogue. It would have been better if the author and publisher would just have said "this is mini book in the series and charged half-price" If they had done that and just cut in half the useless dialogue I would probably have given it at least 3 stars. I guess it's hard to keep it interesting after so many books. Maybe it's time to wrap the series up with one last book and go out with a good one. This one is just bad.

    This is a hard one to review without giving spoilers. It gets going immediately and pulls you into the chase at a good pace. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think they should have given us more answers. ARGHH! I really want to comment on the end but I won't do it. This is definitely worth the credit or full price.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    This is great read. It starts out kinda slow, but at less than 1/3 of the way in I couldn't turn it off. I'm a sucker for shows like Fringe, and the homage the author paid to Fringe immersed me even more in the story than I already was. Resist the temptation to skip ahead and find out what's going on. For me, the best part of the book was them solving the mystery step-by-step. Peter Cline is becoming one of my favorite authors.

    Cant forget the narrator. It's the same guy that does the "Joe Ledger" Novels and he is good at his job.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Story

    This book was really good. I don't take the time to write reviews unless a book was really good or really bad. This one was fantastic. I can usually figure out the main twists in the stories, but not with this one. I'm really looking forward to the series. It is a new way to tell the Super Hero story. That in itself makes it worth a listen.

    It’s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in The Strain and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There has been a mass extermination of humans orchestrated by the Master - an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers. The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters - Dr. Eph Goodweather, Dr. Nora Martinez, Vasiliy Fet, and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It’s their job to overturn this devastating new world order.

    Story

    I've read a lot of horror, end of the world, zombie, vampire, etc.. and I can say that this trilogy was my favorite. Most of the time the books are great, but the endings are lackluster. This ended perfectly. It's not a fairy book ending, it's a fitting ending. And it does end. There are no hanging threads. We find out everything.

    This is not a stand alone read. You have to read all three books to get the full appreciation. I can't wait to see what this author does next.

    Saturday, 0911 hours — A blast rocks a London hospital and thousands are dead or injured. 1009 hours — Joe Ledger arrives on scene to investigate. The horror is unlike anything he has ever seen. Compelled by grief and rage, Ledger rejoins the Department of Military Sciences, and within hours he's attacked by a hit team of assassins and sent on a suicide mission.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "THIS ISN'T A SODDEN COMIC BOOK"
    "Better than the 2nd book"
    Overall

    The 2nd book was ok, but not anywhere as good as the first. This one comes closer to reaching the level of the 1st book.
