    Story

    This is such an imaginative series. These characters just keep drawing you closer, til your heart weeps at times for their struggles. Chess and Terrible pull at your heartstrings, as you feel what they feel.The story is so unique from any other, that I have read. Our heroine is a drug addict, with a heart of gold. From start to finish, this story keeps you enthralled, to the point of not taking the earbuds off til it's done. It's non stop action, mystery, and an emotional roller coaster. I'm on to the next in the series, but need to take a break, before I start, cause once you start, you'll want to do nothing else, but listen. The narration is one of the best I've heard. She has all the emotion down pat, and the voices couldn't be better. Start with book one, and go from there, cause these stories build from the previous one.

    As an escalating scourge of grisly murders sweeps the globe, archaeologist Erin Granger must decipher the truth behind an immortal prophecy foretold in the Blood Gospel, a tome written by Christ and lost for centuries: The shackles of Lucifer have been loosened, and his Chalice remains lost. It will take the light of all three to forge the Chalice anew and banish him again to his eternal darkness.

    Story

    I've heard this is the last of the series, with the three completing their quest, but I could see more quests in the future with the small opening at the story's end. Not that I would mind. The story wraps up nicely, but does have it's losses leaving me a bit sad. Thoroughly enjoyed the series, although the narrator was rather slow in reading an extra long book, making it drag somewhat.

    A cop lies dying beneath the blistering Arizona sun - a local lawman who may well have become the next sheriff of Cochise County. The police brass claim that Andy Brady was dirty, and that his shooting was a suicide attempt. Joanna Brady, his devoted wife and mother of their nine-year-old daughter, knows a cover-up when she hears one...and murder when she sees it.

    Story

    Tried out a new author (for me anyway) from a friend's recommendation. Really enjoyed listening to this book, in fact it took all day Sunday, but I finished it. It is the first of the Joanna Brady series, which starts with a death and a big mystery. Joanna's life is turned upside down on her 10th anniversary, and soon she's led to believe that her husband might have been hiding secrets from her. She won't give up til all her questions are answered though, even as her own life is put in danger. I have to say that I couldn't figure out all the bad guys, which made me want to jump to the end, to satisfy my curiosity. I didn't give in, but kept listening.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Story

    Oh wow, don't start this series unless you're ready to go on a reading frenzy. I'm on to the prequel "Little Sisters of Eluria" and the graphic novels, to get more background on Roland, the Gunslinger. He's the last of his kind on a quest to find The Tower. Slowly we get bits and pieces from his past, while trying to figure out why he is looking for The Tower. To get there, he needs answers from The Man in Black, whom he trails throughout the book. He meets a boy, Jake, that seems to have a part in the whole scheme, so together they travel.
    It's an intriguing tale that only begins with this novel. However, that fact isn't disappointing, cause you won't be ready to leave this fascinating world.

    An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right. Soon her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

    I really like this series, but put off listening to it because of bringing Adam's ex-wife Christy in to the series. It was exactly what I was dreading, listening to a cunning ex-wife trying to get back her husband, with other pack members taking her side. Ugh! I hate those stories.
    The rest of the book was enjoyable, especially bringing Gary Laughing Dog in (he seems to be an interesting character) and I always have liked to hear more from Stephan and Coyotte.
    Just send Chrsity down the road and good riddance.

    In Thirteen Hours, homicide detective Bennie Griessel struggled to solve the murder of an American girl, find her missing friend, and avoid drinking again. In Seven Days, Griessel is given another nearly impossible task. Two police officers have been shot, and the department has received an email from the shooter alleging a cover-up in a cold case. He threatens more violence until the case is solved. The case in question is the murder of Hanneke Sloet, an ambitious lawyer stabbed to death in her apartment. There's no apparent motive and no leads, just a set of nude photographs and an ex-boyfriend with a rock-solid alibi.

    Story

    After listening to Thirteen Hours, I couldn't wait to hear this story as it continued with the life of Det.Benny Grisel. This book wasn't as interesting to me though, as it was filled with corporate politics and trying to explain the workings of big business. Benny had trouble understanding it all, as did I, along with finding it very boring at times. I did enjoy hearing more about Benny's life and how he seems to be patching it up since he quit drinking. The concern for his children and a new girlfriend that falls off the wagon, almost hampers his investigation as he realizes he's behind the times with so much of today's world. All in all, with Benny trying to solve a cold case in order to help solve a rash of police shootings from a sniper claiming a cover up, makes for an interesting story.

    The house was deathly quiet. That was the first sign that something was terribly wrong. Fourteen-year-old Cynthia Bigge woke that morning to find herself alone. Her family - mother, father, and brother - had vanished without a word, without a note, without a trace. Twenty-five years later, Cynthia is still looking for answers. Now she is about to learn the devastating truth.

    Story

    This was one of those books that grabs you from the start and keeps your interest. It starts with a 25 year old unsolved mystery of a family's disappearance. The lone survivor is suddenly more than ever being thrown back to those tragic memories, as new events plague her and her family. I started out listening to this one, then when I got tired of listening, I'd switch to reading for a while. I usually have two books going at once, but I just couldn't tear myself away until this one was finished. The secret keeps you guessing for the majority of the book, then the suspense takes over, as to how it will all play out in the end. My first listen from this author, but definitely not my last.

    In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot - should not - be walking the streets.

    This installment just didn't do much for me. I just couldn't get too excited about the main characters. The series seems to be in a stale period, throwing this book in as a filler, because it wasn't about any of the angels and didn't advance the story of the angelic war.

    This novel by Carl Hiaasen, author of Tourist Season and Native Tongue, begins as most thrillers do, with a killing. But this is no everyday, hum-drum, garden variety killing. Our hero, Nick Stranahan, a 42-year-old private investigator who has killed five men and been married five times, skewers his attacker's aorta with the razor-sharp bill of a stuffed marlin.

    Another screwed up murder mystery with a hysterical sense of humor. Carl Hiaasen knows how to spin a good yarn and George Wilson delivers every morbidly funny punch line with perfection. Each unique character is brought to life then intermingled into one hilarious tale of murder, blackmail, and deception.

    Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

    I felt Mac and Baron's story was finished with the last Fever book, and "Iced' was to be a spin off series that would wrap around different characters (Dani, Riodan, Dancer, and Christian). I loved "Iced" and developed a big soft spot in my heart for Dani, that I never had in the Fever books. I was disappointed in this book, with the path chosen for Dani and the small part she played. Basically, this was a Mac book (which isn't a bad thing) in itself, but I felt it ruined "Iced", and the kid that stole the show.

But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland.
