    Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

    Great mix of action, humour and romance, I bought the first book and now have purchased all of them. Tavia Gilbert gives a great performance its almost a dramatisation rather than a reading she does such a good job with the different characters

But when Lieutenant Sean Canady follows a trail of blood from a drained corpse to the door of her New Orleans boutique, the ethereal beauty realizes the comfortable life she’s made for herself is once again in danger.... Despite her fears that her secrets are no longer safe, it’s the past that could ultimately be Maggie’s undoing. Sean Canady, a Civil War hero, was the love of her life.

    I tried to like this book, but there was nothing in it that I could like, it was dark, grim and brutal. The book was well written and well read but just not for me.

    The world had become used to the metahumans - people sometimes perfectly ordinary, but sometimes quite extraordinary in appearance - who mostly worked with their governments as high-powered peace officers, fighting crime, and sometimes fighting rogue metahumans who had become super-criminals. Then that comfortable world ended in just one terrifying day.

    Baddies vs goodies, black hats vs white hats. Definitely no shades of grey in this book.
    Silly names Yankee Doodle, Red Saviour Belladonna Blue and an uninspiring story means I won't be buying the second book. Pity because I normally like Mercedes' books, maybe she just put her name to this one and the other authors did the writing? Too many cooks?

    Conquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny - and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, one of whose genocidal extermination fleets is coming to the solar system. The only chance for human survival is in the hands of an unusual pair of allies: a young Jao prince, newly arrived to Terra to assume his duties, and a young human woman brought up amongst the Jao occupiers. But, as their tentative alliance takes shape, they are under pressure from all sides.

    Well written but I was annoyed by the narrator pronouncing the silent P in Psion, It should be the the same pronunciation as Psychology, or any other Ps words.

    I have enjoyed Mr Card's books in the past but found this one heavy going, with long involved explanations and unappealing characters. It started off well enough but then seemed to lose its way. It needed to be sharper and punchier with a quicker moving story line for me.

    I also found the changes in narrator distracting, not sure what this added but I did not like it. I won't be buying any more books in what is obviously the start of a new series.

    In the second decade of the 21st century, the world is struck by two catastrophes: a new mini-ice age and a plague to dwarf all previous experiences. Rising out of the disaster is the character known to history as "Bandit Six", an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and prevent the fall of his homeland - despite the best efforts of politicians, both elected and military.

    Whilst Dan did a good job on the narration the main protagonist was just too full of himself for my taste and the unnecessary use of F*** all the time was just plain annoying. Did not get past the first couple of chapters so returned it.

    Haunted by memories of children he could not save, Jon Moore is so increasingly self-destructive that even his best friend, the hyper-intelligent Predator-Class Assault Vehicle, Lobo, is worried. When Jon risks meeting a woman from his distant past and undertakes a high-stakes mission, Lobo fears this will be their last. The job is illegal. They have to take on one of the oldest, most powerful men alive. Two different security forces are tracking them. And Jon is falling in love.

    I have read the Jon & Lobo books and looked forward to hearing the next instalment, unfortunately I couldn't get on with Tom's voice and delivery method. I found it lacked emotion and even in the exiting passages I found the delivery to be flat.

    Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is . . . but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.
