    Anthony Award-winning author Charlaine Harris has earned a devoted fan base with her USA Today and New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. All Together Dead features more dark but frequently hilarious adventures of buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie, who prefers the company of vampires to that of the living.

    SLee says: "Sookie Stackhouse"
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    Totally enjoyed this chapter of Sookie's saga. The 'trial' was amazing. Harris did it again. Johanna Parker was wonderful at capturing Sookie's voice and all the different characters- I listened to it twice.

    Tabloid reporter Hope Adams appears to live the life of an ordinary working girl. But, in addition to possessing the beauty of a Bollywood princess, Hope has other unique traits. For she is a half-demon - a human fathered by a demon. And she has inherited not only a gift for seeing the past but a hunger for chaos - along with a talent for finding it wherever she can.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Woven thriller -- the series continues to rock"
    "Just a little disappointed"
    Overall

    I enjoyed all of Kelley Armstrong's previous Women of the Otherworld series. This was the first time offered through audio. I am really not a fan of Hope Adams. Hope just seemed confused and with her flash backs and chaos addiction became one of my least favorite characters. Paige a normally strong character added very little this story. I will buy the next in the series, but I just hope the females will stop needing to be rescued and start saving the day.

    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"
    "A Story Arc Ending"
    Overall

    Get past the new narrator, this Rachel Morgan book is the culmination of all the past stories. We have many long standing mysterious revealed and many surprises. I have listened to the book twice and I gotten past all the pronunciation issues. Kim is able to recap a previous book in one new sentence as opposed to some authors, actually lazily cutting and pasting whole paragraphs of explanations. I relished each family scene, between Ivy, Rachel and Jenks. This is a story of complex strong characters and relationships, with adventure and fantasy. Rachel Morgan is forging into the EverAfter and I am following every step! Wonderful!

    With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

    Kestrel says: "As good as Poison Study, perhaps better"
    "Part 2 of the Story"
    Overall

    Magic Study was quite good. We are only starting to understand the true depth of Yelana's power. Her powers are imaginative and delightful. The author is doing a bang up job with this series and I cannot wait until book 3.

    Though she's the vampire queen, Betsy Taylor is much more like a princess. In MaryJanice Davidson's novels, this high-maintenance monarch is finally coming to terms with her new status.

    Monica says: "Fun!"
    "Maybe I just don't get her?"
    Overall

    Usually I cannot get enough of strong women characters, I love SF and the Queen of the Vampires seemed to have a concept with a whole lot of potential. But... I don't like her, I don't care about her and she seemed to waste my time. Maybe because the narrator sounded like a valley girl, and I am not from California, but OMG, I am not reading another one.

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."
    "Not too hard to swallow"
    Overall

    Always looking for good strong women characters --and Yelena is not bad as characters go. I don't like fantasy but this world seems to be very rooted in reality. Some surprises and some things quite predictable. I look forward to reading Magic Study.
