    Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them. Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.

    This book has kept me on edge from start to finish, the type of edge I feel while watching a close Redskins game, nail biting and all.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."

    Story

    I listened to this saga by starting with Dead Man's Walk followed by Comanche Moon and then onto Lonesome Dove. The first two books had continuity, the Who, What, Where and When had all been clear. In Lonesome Dove however, it fell apart --- people and places that and who have been part of this story from the start suddenly A) moved, B) never knew each other, C) changed in the time of happening, or D) did not have the same bearing. I find this just a tad bit disconcerting and disappointing! I'll go no further for fear I run the risk of a spoiler. With all that said, I did love the base storyline and I'm glad I listened, the people and places came alive in my minds eye and the saga invoked all the feelings of humor,tension, grief and relief (not necessarily in that orde). So, If not for the continuity I would have given all three books a sold five stars.

    Charlaine Harris' smash-hit Sookie Stackhouse series may have reached its conclusion, but the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, lives on in this all-new collection of 15 stories. Written by a killer lineup of authors, including New York Times best-sellers Rachel Caine, MaryJanice Davidson, Jonathan Maberry and Seanan McGuire, and with introductions read by Charlaine herself, Dead but Not Forgotten puts your favorite characters center stage.

    This collection of stories are a little of old home, the writers kept the feel and taste of CH's books. I give a big "Well Done" to each of them. They also made a wonderful choice by keeping Johanna Parker as the narrater. Again, "Well Done". I have loved and still love the Sookie books and I mourn the end of the series. I find this book bitter because It's the last of a great thing, I find it sweet becouse it gave me one last taste of a wonderful series. So, if you loved and enjoyed the Sookie books as I have, this is a must buy.

    Audible has given us the first three books in this series and I have listened to them all. I find them light and quirky. If you like Molly Harpers books, you may like these. I hope Audible will give us the rest of this series.

    There are two sides to any quarrel... unless there are more. Queen Elizabeth of Manticore's first cousin and Honor Harrington's best friend Michelle Henke has just handed the "invincible" Solarian League Navy the most humiliating, one-sided defeat in its entire almost thousand-year history in defense of the people of the Star Empire's Talbott Quadrant. But the League is the most powerful star nation in the history of humanity. Its navy is going to be back – and this time with thousands of superdreadnoughts.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    I LOVE the Sookie books.
    This series of books is one of my all time favorites and I'm truly sad only one book remains to come.
    Charlaine has created a fun fast paced interesting world that Sookie lives in. so much so that I just can't get into the TV "adaptation" that loosely follows this series. Charlaines Sookie world rocks the way she penned it. You won't see me giving many 5 stars and I do with this group of books.Please start with the first book and follow them in order. I also like the narrator Joanna Parker for this series. Sometimes a narrator fits like Jim Dale did for the Potter books and so Joanna does here.

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

He brings his suspicions to his ex-girlfriend, FBI Agent Nancy Clement, but her bosses are leery of Gideon’s source: a meth-head informant affiliated with a white supremacist group. Both Gideon and Nancy become increasingly convinced that a serious plot exists, but their informant is murdered before they can get more details from him.

    I enjoyed the book, a good and believable storyline. However, Howard needs to check location facts. Nothing drives me crazier than knowing some facts are wrong ie McLean is in Fairfax Co, not PG Co.and you look at the White House and the Washington Monument from the Hay Adams not the Capitol, this type of screw up bothers me.
