    Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her - even defy the gods.

    I've had each book in this series for a while and recently started listening from the beginning. I enjoy this book and the way that the author blends the alpha male personality with his vulnerability and a strong woman's determination.

    Anyone who likes Christine Feehan, Laurell K Hamilton (Anita Blake series) or Karen Marie Moning's (Highlander series) would enjoy this series as well.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    Overall

    I'm glad I gave this series another chance. The banter between characters is entertaining and often laugh out loud funny, but doesn't take away from the main plot. This book also had a great mix of steamy sex, romance between Cat and Bones, vamp killing and justice. Just got books 3 & 4 and can't wait to hear them.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "3 stars"
    Overall

    This definitely has a Buffy (The Vampire Slayer) hooks up with Spike feel. The beginning seemed very childish, although the scene and topics weren't. Midway it did seem to get better. Narrator won't be on my favorite list but she's not on my avoid list either. Will give book 2 a chance to change my opinion.

    Tracy says: "Amazing start to this awesome series!"
    "Incomplete - story and narration editing"
    Overall

    There were several things that bothered me about this book. The main ones were that the scenes seemed incomplete and the 8 second pauses between scenes drove me batty. Battle/action/love scenes were horribly underdeveloped and if I were actually reading the book many couldn't have taken up more than 2 pages. The narrator did slightly change his pitch when talking as a female character but mostly the only difference in how he talked was if he added an accent (which again were poorly done). I might give this series one more try in the hopes that book 2 is better developed.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Katheryne says: "I loved it, but its not for everyone"
    "Great slide to the finish!!"
    Overall

    I first have to say this turned out to be a wonderful book! What I love best about Karen's books is although there's often different struggles/plot twists, she takes care to build them in a believable way.

    The narrators did an awesome job as well and help to make the story come alive. The "rattle snake" sound that Phil does gave me chills each time - he's just plain AMAZING!

    I must admit that the first 3 hours were a struggle for me. I selfishly didn't like where the story was leading but, since I hate reading reviews where others are upset/angry about the direct an author took, I stuck with it, let the story unfold and was completely rewarded!!! This is within my top 5 favorite book series!

    Liam Niall never wanted to be a leader, but after surviving the horrors of the Irish potato famine, he found himself possessed by a demon in search of redemption. Now, he heads the Chicago talyan in their fight against evil, though he grows weary and plagued by self-doubt. Then he meets Jilly Chan. She's a mentor to local homeless youth and waging a one-woman war against the drug-dealing slime that preys upon her charges.

    Overall

    I've listened to both books by Jessa Slade and would recommend them if you're willing to listen intently. I recently listened to these for a second time and guess after a year of listening to Showalter, Moning and Feehan books, these just don't compare. They aren't horrible and I don't regret the purchases. I think my biggest problem is the narrators incorrect inflection and speed throughout the books.

    "Great Book!"
    Overall

    I'm completely hooked on this series after this book! The Darkest Night was great and this was a great follow up - I love how Showalter intertwines one book to the next. My only semi-negative comment would be that as much as I like Max Bellmore's voice for each of these books, I wish Anya's voice wasn't quite so whiny. Then again, that does fit with some of her personality so it's not anything I felt took away from the book.

    All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own.

    "Amazing!!"
    Overall

    I was apprehensive to buy this book in the beginning but I'm so glad that I did. This has turned into one of my favorite series and authors. Showalter does an amazing job building the fictional world but never losing sight of the romance building for both the main characters and future books. Highly recommend this book/series!!!

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    This is by far my favorite book of the series! Have listened to it several times and it never gets old. There was plenty of great steamy sex and a great plot to keep my interest.

    After an accident left her near death, Sera Littlejohn is struggling to piece together her life. But when a violet-eyed stranger reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire.

    Ferris Archer takes Sera Littlejohn under his wing now that she is talyan, possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer and his league of warriors have long risked their demon-shattered souls to stop darker spirits from wreaking havoc, but they’ve never fought beside a female talya before.

    "Good book"
    Overall

    I liked both this book and the narrator. I agree that it does have a complex demon realm to get used to but I still think it's worth the credit. It also had enough romance to keep my interest.
