    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    I think this is the best Jane Yellowrock book yet. It's all around good writing, good characters and a good story. There's some foreshadowing without giving to much away, there's some missing pieces that come together, theirs beast being cunning and funny, and theirs little twists that aren't obvious. So many books have these little twists that you can "feel" coming a mile away, if that makes any sense. I enjoyed just getting caught up in this book. I love this series, and 5 books in am still enthralled. I can't say that for all the series I read.

    Belvaille has cemented its place as the most important system in the galaxy and Hank is working as an official Factotum, negotiating deals between gangs and noblemen under the watchful eye of the Arch Minister. When his ever-capable butler, Cliston, is approached to become the General Manager of a Super Class glocken team, Hank is hired not only as protection, but as a player. Hank finds himself thrown into the most grueling bloodsport in the galaxy and tasked with finding out how and why players are being abducted.

    Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact he didn't even believe in them. Biting your own tongue with your fangs does a lot of convincing. Even so, being a part-time undead isn't as easy as you might think. It can let you hold down a day job, true, but sometimes the night "life" can be more than a little difficult, what with those bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts kicking in.

    It just didn't work for me. The narration was blah, the writing boring, and it just kinda dragged on and on. The whole first book could have been done in two chapters without her whining and being weak and then suddenly flipping to being strong just to turn around and whine and be weak again.

    I'm giving up after a book and a half. Just don't care.

    For millennia, ancient factions of wizards have closely guarded the secrets of liquid fire - distilled from the blood of dragons and the magical key to unbelievably powerful spells. Now, Dakota's flirtation with a fireweaver while visiting San Francisco engulfs her in a magical feud. Forced to defend herself with her masterwork, a powerful dragon tattoo, Dakota becomes the target of superstitious magicians who believe she's summoned the spirit of a dragon....

    Story

    Why was that book so long? Why do we have to learn so much about ever single freaking move of all these different martial arts? Seriously, she would go off about 2 step ,3 step ,basket weave blah blah blah. No idea what was happening. Every action scene I got lost. And I'm not dumb or unable to follow. It was just so badly written and self indulgent. Every step, like it was some kind of learning manual.

    The narrator. I don't remember having any problems with her in the first two books, but this was pretty bad. She did the main characters well, but everyone else sounded like idiots. Literally. Like they were dumb. It was weird. Her accents were crap, all of them. Irish, Scottish, and a couple others were just grating. Then the climactic parts. Ummm, what the hell? She sounded like an over dramatic friend retelling a story while trying to be quiet. Dakota would be screaming and the narrator would do a weird over exaggerated whisper scream. I have an hour left of the book but had to turn it off. I don't even care what happens. I can't follow it.

    I don't know what happened. I enjoyed the first two books, and this had some good parts. Overall, I don't think it's worth the time it takes to get through it or the frustration.

    Faust has been caged, buried, cut off from his allies and his magic. His enemies think they've won. They're about to learn, the hard way, that this is one sorcerer who always has a trick up his sleeve. Nobody has ever escaped from the Iceberg. But the Iceberg has never had a prisoner like Daniel Faust.

    The last book was really good; this one was just so-so. The whole being in prison thing took too much time for no reason. There were some good parts, like the dead king and his nuns, but otherwise blah. Towards the end of prison it all caught up, but we were 2/3 done. I look forward to the next book to see where it goes.

    On opening day of the new baseball season, a small model-kit airplane flies down from the stands and buzzes the mound, where a decorated veteran pilot is about to throw out the first ball. The toy plane is the exact replica of the one flown by the war hero. Everyone laughs, thinking it's a prank or a publicity stunt. Until it explodes, killing dozens.

    Some things can never be undone. The horrors I've defeated - or even caused - with my own hands...they are nothing compared to what's coming. Philip Pinkerton has brought his madness upon my family, my own blood. His army of necromancers is on the move, harbingers of a great darkness. I fear the war has begun...and damn, I don't get paid enough for this.

    Story lagged a bit. Even though they were always moving, it was easy to drift off. Towards the end there's no drifting. It gets good and leaves you wanting the next book now.

    Some call me Shaman Bond, but I was born Eddie Drood: the latest in a long line of folks who chase monsters out of closets for a living to keep humanity safe from all that is dark, demonic, and just downright evil. Needless to say we've made our fair share of enemies over the centuries - and made some questionable bargains.
