    Val Shapiro has a secret she's desperate to keep - she's lost her slayer powers. As the new guardian of the Encyclopedia Magicka, Val expected the books to give her powers to replace those that disappeared after she lost her "V card" to Shade. But the encyclopedia exacts a price for every spell, making the job of guardian a tricky proposition. When a rogue demon kidnaps Val's roommate, Gwen, and Micah, leader of the San Antonio Demon Underground, Val is plunged into the middle of a Solomon's Choice.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes I enjoyed listening bc I can did other things while I do.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mare Trevathan’s performances?

    I have listened to the entire series. The worst part is the narration. The principal character is young but the narrator has a very odd voice not one of someone young. I almost did not purchase the first book in the series but the story seemed fun so I opted to give it a try. Each book is no easier to listen to her as the story teller.


    Do you think Make Me needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes the story is clearly not compete.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    i will get Book 2. i look forward to seeing where the story takes us,. I do hope more details are given regarding the Arcana, i do think certain story aspects ie, Evie not trusting Jack and constantly mulling it over ,were done to death, while the basis of the story the arcana was given in tiny bits only.

    as usual, this story was fantastic but i really hope it is not the end of the Vampire Academy/Bloodlines series.
    i EAGERLY await another aspect of these stories, hopefully a few years from this ending. i so want to know what happens with and where all of these characters end up!!

    Story

    I initially was disappointed in this book and the ending but once i thought about it it holds much more truly than most stories. after a war people are damaged, some are dead but no one goes unscathed. This story gives light to those ugly truths even if it didnt end as dramatically or pretty as most hoped for.
    i think the author tried to give an authentic "feel" to how wars are won and people are used and what happens to people after its over.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    In a broken landscape carved by environmental collapse, Boston paramedic Cacia Ferry risks life and limb on the front lines of a fragile and dangerous city. What most don't know - including her sexy new partner, Eli Margolis - is that while Cacy works to save lives, she has another job ferrying the dead to the Afterlife. Once humans are "Marked" by Fate, the powerful Ferrys are called to escort the vulnerable souls to either eternal bliss or unending fire and pain.

    Carrie Vaughn's Low Midnight spins out of the Kitty Norville series on the wave of popularity surrounding Kitty's most popular supporting character: Cormac Bennett, a two-minded assassin of the paranormal who specializes in killing lycanthropes. In his first solo adventure, Cormac, struggling with a foreign consciousness trapped inside him, investigates a century-old crime in a Colorado mining town, which could be the key to translating a mysterious coded diary... a tome with secrets that could shatter Kitty's world and all who inhabit it.

    With a framing sequence that features Kitty Norville herself, Low Midnight not only pushes the Kitty saga forward but also illuminates Cormac's past and lays the groundwork for Kitty's future.

    This book is written from Cormac's pov, it was good, im looking forward to reading the next book in this Cormac subseries. Roman, the long game and Kitty & Ben will all be part of the next book, im pretty sure.
    the previous Kitty book lagged badly and i get the feeling the author was running out of Kitty adventure material but now that she is writing Cormac's story and incorporating his past i think the series will be refreshed and back to being fantastic!!

    I really liked the stories esp. being the offshoot of the Samantha Moon series as I am a huge fan. The down side was the narration, it is AWFUL! Since when does Samantha Moon have a "European" accent with a lisp!! She is from So. California! !!! Again, the stortline was very good but the narration was soooo bad i almost shut the books off.
    Please get a new narrator for any future books in this series, PLEASE!
