    Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    Overall

    This book had many scenes which got my blood pressure up. The fight scenes with the werewolves and the scene with the vampires were very well written and performed. I have now ordered the rest of the books in the series and am looking forward to learning more about Mercy!

  • Warbound: Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles

    Story
    (2938)

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    Story

    I enjoyed this entire series and this final novel was an excellent conclusion. I was hesitant to listen to this because it was such a departure from Correia's Monster Hunters International which I love. However, the story and characters were so unique, complex, and entertaining I fell in love with this series. Pinchot portrayal of Faye and Henrich was inspired. While Jack Sullivan might be considered the hero, all the characters are so integral to the story which makes for a very satisfying listen!

    Story

    The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous... And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The hero of the story is constantly saying she doesn't understand and nothing makes sense. She is right. I'm sure people like it because the characters were formerly well-developed.


    What was most disappointing about Michelle Sagara’s story?

    Formerly interesting characters have become so stupid, one-dimensional and irritating that I never want to read about them again.


    What aspect of Khristine Hvam’s performance would you have changed?

    She did the best she could with the material provided. Perhaps more energy could have helped the material is some way.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was initially interested in the premise but after listening for an hour I became angry because so much made no sense. I was stuck with nothing else to listen to on a long road trip made longer by this story. I felt cheated after listening to this.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, I can't believe that anyone wrote a positive review for this story. I liked the earlier books and was excited about this one. After listening to the entire mess, I never want to hear from these characters again. The series has "jumped the shark".

    Story

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Witness?

    I mostly enjoyed how smart the female lead was, she was analytical and able to evaluate her own emotions and actions in a thoughtful way.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I walked an extra two miles to hear the end. I would say that I would like to have had some more resolution at the end but overall, very satisfied with the story.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Loved her voice, will listen for more from her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene when she presents the bloody sweater. I don't want to give anything away but it was moving.
