I can't stop. Audiobooks are the diversion and comfort when I am alone, the excitement I don't have the time for, and scratch for that itch

    Take one bored princess. Make her the seventh daughter in a very proper royal family. Have her run away. Add one powerful, fascinating, dangerous dragon. Princess Cimerone has never met anyone (or anything) like the dragon Kazul. But then, she's never met a witch, a jinn, a death-dealing talking bird or a stone prince either. Princess Cimerone ran away to find some excitement. She's found plenty.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think this book would be WONDERFUL for young girls. I thought it was a book that could also be enjoyed by adults, which I think it might be.

    Really it was the reading for the dragons' voices that made me stop listening. I think reading the book with a younger person might be delightful.

    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

    I feel like the books just keep getting better. I loved the weird mystical dream walker, the excitement of the various house busts, and I am just not yet tired of the love triangles. I am going to have to vote for none of the above men, though.

    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    Maureen says: "Best of the series by far!"

    I am not sure why I enjoyed this as much or more than any of the others, but I felt invested and anxious about the events as the unfolded. I enjoyed it all, and it didn't seem tired or predictable like some series become at this point. Can't wait for the next!

    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.

    I short and charming prequel that had enough story to satisfy a full novel. We see Anna's beginnings as a werewolf and how she comes into her own as she discovers her gifts.

    Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son - and enforcer - of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf opposes Charles and his father is struck down. Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer - or Charles will take the fall.

    Beautiful Sorcha is the courageous young woman who risked all to save her family from a wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures. It is from her sacrifice that Sorcha's brothers were brought home to their ancestral fortress Sevenwaters, and her life has known much joy. But not all the brothers were able to fully escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and it is left to Sorcha's daughter, Liadan, to help fulfill the destiny of the Sevenwaters clan. Beloved child and dutiful daughter, Liadan embarks on a journey that shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    I thought it was charming and delightful. I cared about the characters, and there was adventure to keep my interest.
    So some of the plot was predictable- that didn't really keep me from guessing at the other parts and thoroughly enjoying the tale. I would listen to it again!

    I wasn't expecting to love the book. I have read and enjoyed all the Mercy Thompson series so far, and for some reason thought that this was the older, and lesser series. Wrong.
    To me, this book is so much richer than the MT series. I LOVED the heroine! She had depth, was relatable, and admirable. Each character was well developed and the story kept moving, all the while bringing me farther into the world of the werewolves and the pack.
    I also expected the narrator to be a woman, and was surprised that I liked this man better than I would have a woman reading it. The narration skips between the characters, and he has a great voice, and reads well for all of them.

    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    How have a missed this book before??? I can I not love a book about a sassy girl who cannot keep herself from getting into trouble/adventures? No one can help loving Jackie, despite or because of her most relatable flaws. This book is a perfect marriage of character development, charm, whit, a bit of romance, and adventure.

    It is a book that I could read over and over again, because I feel that I am right there experiencing the adventure. I rarely give a 5, and it is without a doubt worth five stars.

    The book not only is a story about a girl coming of age and battling pirates, it is bloody hilarious.

    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    I LOVE the narrator, and I love the series. Tis true that landlocked Jackie is less stimulating than pirate fighting Jackie, but there still were great scenes that made me want to be a better person and left me laughing out loud and yelling at the characters. Not quite as good as the first, but really the series is so good, that any book in it is far superior to any other book I have read in the last year.
