    With New York Times best-sellers like Bloodsucking Fiends to his credit, Christopher Moore has developed a devoted cult following. Coyote Blue introduces Samuel Hunter, a young man who's running from his past while being tormented by an ancient Crow God with a talent for mischief.

    I am a big fan of Christopher Moore and have read almost all of his books. This one was probably my least favorite of them all. Nothing (in particular) about this book is wrong........It just didn't seem to catch the wicked humor with the story and characters. Just my opinion though.

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    Kudos to Brandon Sanderson for doing a superb job of pulling Robert Jordan's work together. The book moves along much faster than the previous 11 books in the series. As for the narration, if you've listened on audio to any of the previous Wheel of Time books there's nothing to worry about!!! The narrator's do just fine. By the time you're done with this book you'll feel as if the characters and story-lines are coming back together to make an epic conclusion. Worth every penny!!

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    Carol says: "Horrible Narration Take 2"
    "NARRATOR IS APPALLING!!!!!!!!"
    Overall

    Love the series but you DO NOT change narrators 6 books into the series!!!! Her accents are atrocious and the voices that she uses for the characters do not fit what has been previously established. The author's story was fine but hearing it read by the new narrator was like nails across a chalkboard!!!!!!!!!

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    Overall

    Christopher Moore's wicked and twisted sense of humor is right up my alley. I have only read two other books by him (before this one) but now, I'm going to have to get them all!
