    Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    Story

    I love this series, the main character is humble and witty. Oberon the dog is hilarious, although, I don't see how Bacon Lattes would be tasty!!! I find my self researching some of the gods mentioned and have learned a little bit about mythology. Great series, light and fun all around!!!

    When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown....

    Story

    I overall really enjoy the series, Lorelei King is fantastic. The story is a different twist on the paranormal with a strong, witty, female character. However, the sarcastic nature of Charlie can sometimes be overbearing and not appropriate at points in the story. I look forward to the next book, it definitely is a great read!!!

    Ariella Montero is seeking the true identities of her mother - and father and of herself. She's been taught literature, philosophy, science, and history, but she knows almost nothing about the real world and its complexities. Her world is one in which ghosts and vampires commune with humans, where Edgar Allan Poe and Jack Kerouac are role models, and where every time a puzzle seems solved, its last piece changes the entire picture.

    M. S. Cohen says: "Wonderful premise, horrible story, bad end"
    "boring!!"
    Overall

    This book was slow from beginning to end. The storyline was weak and didn't have much depth. It is hard to buy into vegetarian vampires! If you like vampire stories, you will be sadly disappointed with this one.

    "TOO FUNNY!!"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of vampire genre. This book was the funniest vampire story I have ever read! I don't usually read vampire stories to get a good laugh, but this is exactly what you will do! The narrarator is great and the characters are so likable, I love Abby, she cracks me up! If you want a good story and a good laugh, then you are in the right place!!

    May finds herself in a world that most certainly does not feel like a fuzzy mitten. In fact it is a place few living people have ever seen. Here, towns glow blue beneath zipping stars and the people walk through walls. Here theBook of the Dead holds the answers to everything in the universe. And here, if May is discovered, the horrifyingly evil Bo Cleevil will turn her into nothing.

    This was a lighthearted delightful read. One which intrigues the imagination. I found myself chuckling outloud on numerous occasions. The narrator really brought the characters to life and the detailed descriptions by the author allowed me to envision the characters no matter how crazy they seemed.

    I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.

    David says: "Meh"
    "average at best"
    Overall

    I am a huge fan of vampier genre. This is not the best, but fairly entertaining. The narrator was great in the main character. However, the supporting characters were ear piercing. I felt parts were a little drawn out. I am not even sure if I would listen to the sequal.
