    Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want? But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Overall

    I like the style in which the author writes. It’s humorous and suspenseful and interesting. I will listen to more books in this series.

    A deadly assassin sent from a race called the Mein, exiled long ago to an ice-locked stronghold in the frozen north, strikes at Leodan Akaran, ruler of the Known World, while the Mein also unleash surprise attacks across the empire. On his deathbed, Leodan puts into play a plan to allow his children to escape, each to his separate destiny. And so his children begin a quest to avenge their father's death and restore the Acacian empire, this time on the basis of universal freedom.

    "I liked this book"
    Overall

    The book held my interest throughout. Each character has his/her own battle to fight whether mental or physical, sometimes both. You can't help but feel sympathetic for the bad guys while waiting for the good guys to get it together. I like all of the characters. I can't wait for the next book.

    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"
    "I like the book but..."
    Overall

    I was distracted by the narrator's mispronunciation of key words and names, such as Piscary and ley. The book was entertaining and I am interested in reading the next one in the series. I just hope the narrator for this book won’t be reading for the next.

    The body of an elderly woman is found dismembered in a Virginia landfill. Scarpetta initially believes the clues mirror that of a serial killer she's tracked before. But upon further investigation, she discovers puzzling pox-like erruptions on the woman's body that, perhaps, point in another direction.

    Joanna says: "Interesting Story Ruined by Narrator"
    "boring"
    Overall

    This book is way too complicated. The narrator’s style of reading does not inspire me to continue to listen. I have yet to get to the end of the book. The book is written as if the reader has some experience in the medical field or law enforcement. I did not like this book.

    The brutal murders of three young boys paralyze the citizens of Platte City, Nebraska. What's worse is the grim realization that the man recently executed for the crimes was a copycat. When Sheriff Nick Morrelli is called to the scene of another grisly murder, it becomes clear that the real predator is still at large, waiting to kill again.

    Ronna says: "Potential great thriller-bit like soap opera!!"

    Janet Evanovich is at it again! This time, Diesel makes an appearance just after Valentine's Day in order to turn Stephanie's world upside down. Filled with all the characters you know and love from the Burg, including Lula, Grandma Mazur, Connie, Ranger, Joe, Tank, Valerie, and Albert Kloughn, Plum Lucky is a can't-miss bestseller for Janet Evanovich's legion of fans.

    S says: "very entertaining"
    "another success"
    Overall

    This book was short and entertaining. I like the seasonal books with Diesel. It’s a break from the more serious books but gives an update on everyone’s lives.
