    Critics have called her “sweet, adorable, and vicious.” But there is so much more to be said about Samantha Bee. For one, she’s Canadian - whatever that means. And now, she opens up for the very first time about her checkered Canadian past. With charming candor, she admits to her Lennie from Of Mice and Men-style love of baby animals, her teenage crime spree as one-half of a car-thieving couple, and the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals.

    Samantha Bee is hysterical! I can't imagine actually reading this book when you can listen to it. I'm sure it is a funny read as well, but you would deffinitely miss something without Bee's impressions, mannerisms, and inflections. Really, really, funny!

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    This is so good! I am so glad that audible put it on their recommended series list, I don't know when I would have found it otherwise. Kevin Hearne has created a series that has me completely hooked. And Luke Daniels does such an amazing job narrating it that I don't know if I would be so addicted to the series if I had just read it in print. His portrayal of Oberon is fabulous! If anyone else narrates this series down the road it would be a huge mistake (ie Dresden and Dexter). The book is a perfect combination of action and humor. The story and characters are incredibly likeable without being cheesey. I really can't say enough about how much I enjoy this series. It's definitely a favorite now!

    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....

    I have listened to some of the series and read some. So the change in narrator did not bother me in the least. It was very well read. The book is incredible! Well worth the wait. No cliff-hanger like the last one (thank God). I can't tell you how many times I was brought to tears. It was just so stinkin' good! Can't wait for the next one!

    "Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways. As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe."

    I'm torn between what to rate this series, especially this book. On one hand I want to give it 5 stars because I can't stop listening to it. On the other hand I want to give it 1 star because never before have I gotten so angry at the main character of a series. Faythe makes mistakes and bad choices one after another throughout the series that leave me constantly swearing outloud. I continue listening because I'm hoping that at least some of the supporting characters make it to the end alive and not emotionally destroyed. Vincent has me listening because I'm attached to them more than the heroine. She is stupid and selfish even though you are suppose to believe she is strong and independent. So I'll listen to the last book I need to know how it all ends.

    Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals.

    Amazon Customer says: "Odd even for Dexter, but enjoyable!"
    "As good as the rest."
    Overall

    I was tentative to listen to this after reading the first several reviews about the author's narration. I had LOVED Nick Landrum's voice throughout the series thus far. But Jeff Lindsay does a decent job at narrating this edition. The book itself is excellent! Dexter loses his edge in trade for humanity for a while and it's an interesting twist on the character. As always, I remain a devoted Dexter fan.....can't wait for the next one!

    Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

    "Half a book"
    Overall

    I've listened to all of this series.....some have been better than others. This one has taken a lot of flack review-wise on Amazon. I have to agree with most of what is being said: Betsy seems more dumb and oblivious than ever. Although I did like the time travel elements of the story. The ending is shocking; a complete 180 in what you expect from this series. I really feel this is half a book, it ends at the peak of the plot-line. Unfinished is part of the title and I guess I should have taken that as a warning. I'm sure I would not have been so disappointed if I had the next in the series (i.e. the other half of this book) to read immediately after finishing this one. It's not like this book ends with a cliff-hanger so that you cant wait for the next one. It just stops, there isn't an ending. So my recommendation is to wait until next July and read the two together.....you'll be less pissed off that way.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Overall

    This is a GREAT book! The narration was awesome--his voice was a perfect match for this character. Yes, it has a good dose of blood and guts, but none of it is gratuitous. All the gore is an integral part of the plot. I'm anxious to read more of Sandman Slim--this story is a fresh and original specimen in a genre that often seems repetitive.

    Overall

    I had been so excited about this book coming out that I was nervous it wouldn't live up to my expectations. My husband thinks I'm a little obsessed with the Southern Vampire Series. I can't help it, Harris has drawn me in with Sookie, Eric, Bill, and Sam.
    Dead and Gone is no let-down. I was thrilled to see the development between Sookie and Eric. I have become a huge Eric fan and enjoyed how Harris made me love him and question him even more in this book. And Bill....oh, how she smoothes him in there as well... I can't wait to see what becomes of the three of them.
    My only disappointment was that it ended too soon. I can't wait for the next one!
