    Dory is used to fighting hard and nasty. So when she wakes up in a strange scientific lab with a strange man standing over her, her first instinct is to take his head off. Luckily, the man is actually the master vampire Louis-Cesare, so he's not an easy kill. It turns out that Dory had been working with a Vampire Senate task force on the smuggling of magical items and weaponry out of Faerie when she was captured and brought to the lab.

    I like this author I like her Cassie series as well as this one. The narrator is ok although i'm often distracted when she talks so long she runs out of breath. The book is good but confusing at times it jumps around with out notice and sometimes you have to rewind because you think you have missed something. She may have noticed this because at the end she took a while to explain exactly what happened then your like ohhhhh ok I get it. So again the book is good you just have to pay close attention and maybe rewind a few times to try to keep up.

    This is the first time listening to this author and she did a decent job. I liked the book it wasn't one of those books where your like omg this is the best book ever but if your looking for a series in between your favorite authors this one will do....so far. The narrator did a good job and i was able to pay attention to the story. The only thing I didn't really care for was the wording but i guess it was appropriate for the story. Necking? I'm old enough to know what it means but it may be confusing for a younger audience.

    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.

    This series is by far one of my favorite, there is action, excitement, love and comedy. Rachel and trent are awesome together would have preferred a more of a ending (can't say much with out spoilers) but still an awesome book and i hope kim harrison starts a new series much like this one i'm not really in to any of her other books but this one is awesome. Margerite Gavin is a perfect narrator, she really knows how to deliver a superb performance. Start the series if you haven't already you wont be disappointed.

    I really love this series i didn't think it was as funny as many of her other books but still an awesome listen i did feel like something was missing in this book maybe because a character was missing.but still darynda always delivers an interesting story.and as always lorelei kings performance is impeccable. If you haven't read or listened to this series now is a good time to start.

    I really enjoyed this book although i thought it could have been longer. The narrator is one of my favorites so no complaints there she always does a good job. My name is the same as one of the characters but the annoying one so it kind of took me away from the story. It's a good listen.

    Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises. The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld. Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.

    I had listened to the previous book and I liked them well enough i had actually forgot about this series and just caught back up with it. The narrator has never been my favorite but she did much better in this book almost like a completely different person. As far as the story it's almost like the author decided to change her writing style and the feel of the book. The dear diary parts i really could have done with out and the flash backs were time consuming and unnecessary jolie was more whiny than usual i didn't really care for this book i'm going to listen to the next one but if it doesn't get better ill have to stop listening to this series.

    One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls - a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just "troubled". Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side - learning to harness their powers, control their magic, and live in the normal world. Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she?

    This book could have been better the idea was ok I found it hard to pay attention to the narrator she isn't horrible but i had trouble telling between the different characters. She needs to make the voices more distinct. The story it's self was ok but it seemed like it could have been the first writing attempt. It's ok if you really don't have anything else to listen to it leaves you slightly wondering what happens next.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    Kim Harrison is a wonderful writer and this book just supports that claim. The book was entertaining and addictive I just had to know what happened next i really cant wait for the next book. This is a wonderful series and the narrator is amazing she really has the characters down and they are very believable. The only issue i had with this book's narration was the pronunciation of eden the other books she said it as ed-en now its eden hard to explain but it was a little distracting. But in all this is a great book give it a listen.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Ok, i usually love the half moon hollow world, but this book i found a bit confusing due to the new characters that are presented as if we knew who they were and it seemed to skip from person to person pretty fast and i found i had to figure out who was talking. I found this short story a little boring not up to par to the usual writing. I just didn't find gigi that interesting.

    Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha - that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me…something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing - and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me.

    I have ran out of books i wanted to hear so i thought it would be ok to listen to this short series. Amanda Ronconi is always entertaining she makes any book interesting so I gave this a shot. It was able to keep my attention I enjoyed listening to it. YA for sure but when you have ran out of all other series you have to branch out. The main character is likable and the co characters are believable. The narrator really makes the story come to life for me. You can give it a try.
