    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Overall

    A fantastic end to a great series! It's a thrill ride and every time you think you have it figured you're in for a surprise. I don't normally like multiple narrators but it works perfectly in this book. You really need to start at the beginning of the series before getting this one. You won't be disappointed.

    After the death of his prime minister, Cardinal Mazarin, 22-year-old Louis steps in to govern France. He’s still a young man, but one who, as king, willfully takes everything he can get—including his brother’s wife. As the love affair between Louis and Princess Henriette burns, it sets the kingdom on the road to unmistakable scandal and conflict with the Vatican. Every woman wants him. He must face what he is willing to sacrifice for love.

    "Good book ...horrible reader....."
    Overall

    I'm not one to write a review but I really think it is warranted in this case. The writing is great I'm a big fan on Ms. Koen but the narration is terrible. The narration is just distractingly bad and it is preventing me from even finishing. I will not purchase anything with this reader again.

    I am kind of shocked that such a miss match of material and reader was allowed to go forward.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    "Very Entertaining"
    Overall

    I enjoyed it so much the first time, I'm listening again....completely entertaining! I'm in agony to find out if or when the story will be continued. This was a fantastic beginning to what I hope is a series.
