    "When killing people is your job, there’s no such thing as a vacation. Then again, how often does an assassin live long enough to enjoy her retirement? In this line of work, you either get lucky or you get dead. And since I destroyed my nemesis, Mab Monroe, a few weeks ago, all of Ashland’s lowlifes are gunning to make a name for themselves by taking out the lethal Spider—me, Gin Blanco."

    Story

    I was very happy when Donovan Caine left Ashland. The fact that Gin had 2 encounters with him (one in a closet and another in a car) and is still so hung up on him, makes me grind my teeth. Especially, when she has such a wonderful relationship with Owen Gracin. I am currently having a difficult time getting through this story as it appears to be gang up on Gin, from the idiot cop to her "beloved" sister cop. Gin is such a strong character, except for these issues with Donovan, who is a giant pain in the a**.

    I'll keep going to hopefully put this character to bed once and for all and will write a follow-up review when I finish.

    Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped - and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he’s determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable.

    Story

    This story did not disappoint at all! I loved how the story develops for Noelle and Hector - it has so much heart and feelings woven through the story, along with the vulnerability of the characters was the kick ass attitude of them both. However, this is book 6 and the past 5 stories were narrated by the fantastic Justine Eyre who developed all of the characters voices and they were so distinct it was very enjoyable to listen to each one of them. This book however, barely registered a change in voices and of course could not match the distinctive voices we have grown to love.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I was completely impressed at the way so many characters from this series made an appearance in a way that made sense to the completion of this story. They didn't just appear for appearance sake. This story was non-stop action and constantly kept you thinking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Without specifics it actually did both - it had many highs and lows which makes for a great book!


    Any additional comments?

    I can honestly say, when I started this book I couldn't imagine that this was a series finale, as there are so many characters and it is such a diverse series, but Ms. Armstrong really went all out to make this book worthy of a fantastic series!

    Newly undead shifter-turned-vampire Kita Nekai is coming to grips with the reality that her cat has not awakened since her change. What she needs is a little time to adjust to her new liquid diet and the increasingly complex attraction to her sire, Nathanial. What she gets is a headless harlequin.

    Story

    I understand that stories need excitement and momentum - and I enjoy that, but this series is all doom and gloom with no humor or light moments to break up all of the negativity.

    I also hope (if I do another one of these stories) that Kita finally gets with the program and begins to embrace being a vampire on some level - it is just annoying at this point.

    New York Times best-selling author Richelle Mead returns to the Otherworld, a mystic land inextricably linked to our own--and balanced precariously on one woman's desperate courage. Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land's prophecy-haunted queen, there's no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born-children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld....

    Story

    Do to all the negative reviews I read - I was almost dreading this book. But how do you not finish a series?? So now I can say having finished it - that I'm definitely glad I did! Was I thrilled with everything "No" - however, I am never 100% happy with all books, especially with so many complicated issues as this series deals with.

    I do not want to comment too directly on the story and ruin it for anyone reading this comment, but I do have to agree with many of the reviews that Kiyo is someone I would truly love to throttle if given half a chance,

    As for the open ending - not usually a fan, but I KNOW how I want the characters to end - so for me I can accept it.

    Definitely worth listening to....

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    As with the MANY other reviews, the narration was lacking and it was not John Glover's fault, as he did a good job, but on book 13 he is not Harry Dresden or any other character we've come to love. When you are listening to any series with one narrator, it is ALWAYS a bad idea to change. Hopefully, the true voice of Harry Dresden will return in Book 14. The story however, was creative and enjoyable and I am glad I listened to it.

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    I loved this book!! The relationship with Eve and Roarke is my favorite literary relationship and this book highlighted why I care about this couple. Watching them deal with such an emotional case and how to care for one another was exceptional! Of course Eve's kick-ass style was also well represented, no matter what she has been through, she still manages to pick herself up and take care of business - LOVE HER!!
