    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    This book is out of my genre normally but I bought it because of the all the 5 star ratings and other peoples comments. sometimes that's a bit tricky because we all have different expectations. This far exceeded mine. I kept looking for things to do so I could put the headphones on and keep listening to the storey. I loved the narrator too, I'm looking for more books narrated by Ray Porter and searching now for more books by Peter Clines. this was a great listening book. I thouroughly enjoyed it.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Story

    It was good to have a different character and while this book is great as a stand alone book, it was cute to have the cross references with all Molly Harpers other books. As always a fast paced, action book with the gutsy female characters always falling into trouble but falling in love at the end. a good story is where I look for excuses to plug my headphones in. thanks again Ms Harper on a job well done.

    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.

    Story

    This was a fun story and had me hooked from the start. I found myself looking for tasks to do so that I could keep listening. I find that's hard to do with an audio book. But Jane's life turning from bad to worse, or from worse to better depending on perception was engaging. Amanda Ronconi brought the books to life. It was so good, that after listening to this story, I downloaded all the others in the series. I can't wait for the rest of her books to be in a audio format.

    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 loved the book and the whole series. I don't know how I stumbled onto this series, because it's not within the genre I usually prefer, however, the story was so engaging I found myself making excuses to be able to listen to all the book(s). I don't know why it took so long for Kevin Hearne to become "fortnight success" but I can't wait for him to write more books. Kevin is an author I'll keeping searching for. The story is clever, witty and action packed. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the scenes (which was embarrassing at times) and I love the relationship between the druid and his dog. Luke Daniels is a great narrator with a good reading style and timbre in his voice. He's made the books come alive. Well done. I can't wait for the next book -Tricked.
