    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Story

    Set in an alternate Victorian England, this tale is wonderfully witty, full of humor, set within a horrific story . Miss Tarrabotti is what they call a preternatural, that can neutralize the effects of the supernatural. She is one of very few of her kind, who finds herself in all kinds of predicaments that ends up in the hands of the supernaturals' own police dept, thus enters Lord Maccon. These two are always at odds, thus becoming attracted to each other, with banter that delights the listener. Elsewhere, in the story is a group of sinister scientists that are out to exterminate anything unnatural, putting our main characters in peril. The whole book is made up of a very amusing group of characters that keeps us in chuckles while solving mysterious disappearances of vampires and werewolves.
    The narration is excellent in capturing the language and wit intended.

    In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    Story

    Have read or listened to this entire series, and I must say that it was well worth the time. Harrison created an alternate world full of demons, witches, elves and vampires, made it thoroughly engrossing with good times and bad. The books had times that we cried for characters lost, feared for the future, and laughed out loud. I grew close to this little family and will miss them all, Jinx's sense of humor, Newt's unpredictability, the mystery of Trent, and Al being my favorite with his arrogance and seemingly uncaring attitude.
    This book ties up all the loose ends of the previous books, solves the dilemma of the demons, the soul searching of the vampires, and the future path for all the supes.
    Rachel does find out where she fits in to the whole scheme of things, finally, with a satisfying close to the series. Thanks Kim.

    As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now, he and his devoted wife, Rina Lazarus, are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their four adult children and their foster son. But working for the Greenbury Police department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. While Rina has adapted beautifully to their new surroundings, Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad 'tude.

    Story

    This story was like a whole new beginning for the series. Peter and Rena have moved cross country to be closer to the kids and grand-kids. Rena has settled in, but Peter is growing restless with his new boring job in a small police dept. That all changes when he is called to investigate a cemetery break in. Peter and his new partner have a way to go to blend, with him being a young Harvard graduate that seems to have a chip on his shoulder. This duo provides us with the comic relief for what ends up to be a complex art heist that turns very deadly for all involved. The characters are wonderful and the narration grows on you after awhile.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Story

    Will Robie is a government assassin, thinking about being 40, then letting his conscience be his guide on an assignment. A correct decision opens a whole can of worms and never ending consequences for Will, including involvement in a murder, and protecting a 14 year old eye witness.
    This is a non-stop thriller with an ever evolving plot, likable characters and dramatic conclusion, left a tad open for the next book. The narrators do an excellent job (although Julie does sound somewhat older than she should). Glad this is only the first of the Robie saga, cause growing attached to this group was an easy thing to do.

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural. Body and soul - they're also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho.

    Story

    This is the second installment of the Peter Grant series. Peter is an apprentice to Inspector Nightengale of the magic police. It picks up where the first book leaves off, with Lesley on the mend, so Peter is on his own, jumping head on into the fire. When things (speaking of the magical bad people) are obvious to us, Peter is in denial (which becomes a little frustrating at times), as he puts his family and co workers in danger. Still, it's a good story made even better by the narration. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith does an excellent job with the voices and capturing the feel of the country. I'll go on to the next installment, hoping to see Peter mature some with his magical skills and acting correctly on his intuition.

Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    Northern Ireland in 1981 during "The Troubles", one murder, then another, seems to be a serial killer of homosexuals, but is it? Sean Duffy is in charge and going to find out, but has many obstacles to cross trying to get to the conclusion.
    This book recreates a great backdrop of the politics and civil uprisings of that time. Was a good history lesson for me, with a fascinating crime mystery to solve.
    The narration is exceptional with the accents and character differentiation.
    Glad to hear this is the first of a trilogy.

    Faythe is totally self centered. If you keep reading this series, you'll have to adjust to her doing one stupid mistake after another and breaking the heart of the man that loves her. As far as the werecats go, I like the characters and the situations that arise. It has an interesting adventure and mystery going on. I'm reading the next installment now, hoping Faythe's character will grow at some point to be more like able. (Still working on that one) For someone that wants to be a leader and enforcer, she just doesn't have a clue at times.

    Long Beach homicide detective Danny Beckett can’t escape the pain. It’s everywhere: in the injuries that earned him a year-long medical leave; in the suffering of every victim he’s ever encountered; in the agony of his past. But he must keep the pain at bay to prove he still has what it takes to do the job. So it’s only fitting that his first major case back is a gruesome one: A California congressman’s daughter-in-law and grandchildren have been brutally murdered, and the carnage is some of the worst Danny’s ever seen. Is it a mob hit? Political retribution? A random sex crime? Nothing quite adds up….

    A good title for this one, as the author gives us plenty of insight about chronic pain while solving his second murder mystery. I liked the book and wished I would have read it instead of listening. The narrator changed from the first installment and I had trouble with following this guy. Much of the time, all the voices sounded the same, which turned out to be a bad thing when there were so many characters to keep track of. The characters also had foreign names that were hard to keep track of. All and all it was a good crime story, but I would recommend the Kindle for this one.

When Danny arrives at the school, the blood-spattered crime scene turns even his veteran stomach. What could this young woman have done to make her the target of such a violent attack?

    Story

    This is the first of the Long Island Homicide series, which introduces us to Danny Beckett and his partner Jen. We get enough background on these characters to like them and want to hear more about them, along with an interesting police procedural. They're good cops with some believable issues, and no super human qualities, but manage to get their man in the end with good police work and keen intuition. Some reviews have said that it's too easy to figure out the murderer. Could be for some, but there's a long list of suspects thrown in to the mix, which leaves the reader wondering if they actually do have it right.
    What I liked the most about the story was the character development. Like Harry Bosch and Dave Robicheaux, they're not perfect but have sparked our interest enough, to keep us going back to hear more from them. Glad to see there's two more books after this one.

    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.

    Story

    Don't listen to this one while driving. I was almost crying at the wheel. Family bonds, pack bonds, bonds of friendship, they all get tested in this dangerous episode. Kate is put in to one perilous situation after another, as she and Rolland are out for a showdown, but her losses are great along the way. As Kate's heart breaks for the ones she loves, so did mine, as Renee Raudman did her usual excellent job of bringing Kate, Curan, friends and foes to life. This story was exceptionally emotional, as told through the eyes and heart of Kate, with a turning point in the end.
    If you follow the series, be ready for one of the best episodes yet. If you don't follow the series, go to the beginning and catch up. You wont' be disappointed.
