    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Story

    Don’t know what I was thinking, but listened to another Vampire book. Well, I was thinking it’s only $5. Still trying to understand the popularity of these books. Part of it is the good girl / bad boy appeal. But also think some good girls like their bad boys with great rears.

    If you like girls who are a bit saucy, and trouble seems to seek them out, then a book to consider.

    Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.

    Story

    Good follow-up to “The Dreaming Void”. More details on the cool technology introduced in the first book and continuation of an intriguing storyline with many sub-plots. Since this is the 2nd book in the trilogy, I expected a drop off in novelty, but hoped the book would deliver high entertainment value. Basically, I knew what I was getting into and was not disappointed.

    I also realized that I must be a Peter Hamilton fan. I have listened to 5 of his books and enjoy his mix of tech, storytelling and action. Importantly, I do not find myself getting bored and wondering “what’s on TV?”.

    As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut - a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

    Story

    This book is about a woman who transforms herself from an outsider into a beloved member of the community. It’s also about shape shifters and the women who love them. I am not a fan of interspecies dating and I lean towards adventure versus self-discovery.

    For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected - perhaps infected is a better word - by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results.

    Story

    “Indexing” is entertaining, but the storyline is similar to TV series such as “The X-Files” and “Warehouse 13”. Federal agents attempt to solve mysteries and keep the public oblivious to the dangers.

    The book is clever and provides different explanations on the meaning of Fairy Tales. There are moments when solving Fairy Tale crimes was ingenious. Unfortunately, my favorite story “The Three Little Pigs” was not included and I have always suspected those pigs were up to more than just home construction.

    AD 3580. The Intersolar Commonwealth has spread through the galaxy to over a thousand star systems. It is a culture of rich diversity with a place for everyone. A powerful navy protects it from any hostile species that may lurk among the stars. For Commonwealth citizens, even death has been overcome.

    Story

    As “The Dreaming Void” ends, a voice rang out, “Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program”. I certainly did. The book follows two storylines; one includes cool futuristic tech and the other includes fantasy genre magical powers. Both have several action filled moments that tempt listeners to stay up late or sneak listens during the day. The two stories are interesting and linked.

    A slow start and the large number of characters were my only negatives.

    It was difficult to pick my favorite technology, but finally settled on “multiples”. In the distant future, people can purchase multiple selves and is based on the thought “If only there were more of me, I could get more done”. Each self is connected by a common mind and thus know what the other selves are doing. If I had that technology, I could be in 3 places at one time, and if I could afford more me’s, I could be in 9 places at once. I could get into a lot of trouble.

    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....

    Story

    A teacher used to tell us that “it’s fun until someone gets hurt”.

    This time, Atticus O’Sullivan the intrepid Druid, delivers on his promise to help friends get revenge on an old enemy. He is warned that keeping his word will lead to unimagined suffering and possibly his early demise. Does he listen, of course not.

    "Hammered" appears to be setting the storyline for the rest of the series. The book is less about Atticus and his close friends in Tempe, Arizona than the prior two books; thus less interesting.

    The Terran Union is engaged in a vast interstellar war against the Krag Ruthless aliens intent on exterminating humankind. In 2315, the wily Max Robichaux is given command of the USS Cumberland, a destroyer with state-of-the-art capabilities but a combat record so bad, she’s known as the “Cumberland Gap.” Capt. Robichaux’s first mission: to take his warship to the Free Corridor, where the Krag have secretly been buying strategic materials, and to seize or destroy any ships carrying enemy cargo.

    Story

    It’s 200 years in the future and an alien race wants to exterminate all humans. If the Earth-based military forces do not defeat the enemy, all will be lost. In an effort to disrupt the alien’s capability to wage war, a space ship is sent on a dangerous mission to destroy supply lines. But, instead of selecting one of their best, the military has chosen a ship deemed unimportant and, if lost, of little consequence.

    Like so many military sci-fi books, humans have angered another race and must battle a foe that has superior forces and technology. Unlike other books, this one is focused on shipboard life and the challenges faced by a crew at war. Reminded me of the movie “Master and Commander – the Far Side of the World” staring Russell Crowe.

    Jean le Flambeur is a post-human criminal, mind burglar, confidence artist, and trickster. His origins are shrouded in mystery, but his exploits are known throughout the Heterarchy—from breaking into the vast Zeusbrains of the Inner System to stealing rare Earth antiques from the aristocrats of Mars. Now he’s confined inside the Dilemma Prison, where every day he has to get up and kill himself before his other self can kill him.

    Story

    This book was published four years ago, and while listening to Quantum Thief, I often felt 4 years old. I know that something important is being said, but I am not always able to understand the meaning. I was transfixed by the technology described in the book. To reduce the time it takes to communicate, characters often convey information by sending others a memory or thought. While not unique to this book, “time” is a form of currency and there is a pathetic scene where beggars plead for a few minutes of time to extend their life. The space craft used by the main characters is sentient and enjoys flirting with male passengers. But what did it all mean? Like a four year old, I do not have a clue. So, I clap my hands and squeal at the parts that I enjoyed.

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    If you find yourself about to be bitten by a vampire, you will want Jane Yellowrock’s help. She has vampire experience, carries an arsenal of anti - vampire weapons and fights as if possessed by a beast. A very entertaining listen, and based on the number of reviews, very popular.

    Story

    Imagine a world where your worst nightmares are true. There really are zombies, werewolves, vampires and other nasty creatures that stalk us when we are alone in the dark, and the government’s official stance is that it’s all nonsense. Unofficially, the government has assigned a special task force to hide all evidence (bodies). Who you gonna to call?

    Fortunately, there is a company that kills monsters for profit. This is their story and it is packed with action, witty one liners, and a stay up past your bedtime plot. I do not like to think of myself as food, so I am glad this is fiction. Highly recommended fiction.

    Devi Morris isn't your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It's a combination that's going to get her killed one day - but not just yet. That is, until she gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn't misnamed; it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she's found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her plan.

    Got this book to hear the story of a hard fighting, hard drinking space mercenary. I was expecting the hero to be a tough talking woman who takes down aliens with her big guns. But “Fortune’s Pawn” is also the story of girl meets guy, girl gets guy, girl worries about losing guy. I do not care about the problems of dating in space.
