    Charlaine Harris' smash-hit Sookie Stackhouse series may have reached its conclusion, but the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, lives on in this all-new collection of 15 stories. Written by a killer lineup of authors, including New York Times best-sellers Rachel Caine, MaryJanice Davidson, Jonathan Maberry and Seanan McGuire, and with introductions read by Charlaine herself, Dead but Not Forgotten puts your favorite characters center stage.

    I have read and enjoyed all the Sookie Stackhouse books and miss not having new ones, so this was a great return to that world. Johanna Parker did a fantastic job reading each of the short stories and I feel made the return trip 100%, because you could feel you were back in Sookie's world hearing her voice. Thank you for this treat.

    Merry Gentry pretends to be human. She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency. But all of this is just a disguise; in fact she is a princess of faerie, her real name is Meredith Nic Essus, and she had to flee the Dark Court of Faerie because of attempts on her life. In order to inherit her rightful crown, Merry needed to conceive an heir, a notoriously difficult task for the slow-reproducing Fey. In the 2009 novel Divine Misdemeanors, Merry had finally achieved that goal - and fans have been kept waiting all this time to find out what happens!

    Story

    Laurell K Hamilton--I am a fan and have read all of your Merry Gentry series and Anita Blake series.. But this book is falling short I'm sorry to say. It's too repetitive and it has a "Ladida" quality that makes it more YA and it is not a YA. I think the voice of the reader ads to that feeling. Sorry-but it's not my favorite by far.

    For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected - perhaps infected is a better word - by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results.

    The “Indexing” by Seanan McGuire is truly an innovative story. A must read-to clear your pallet of the “same-o, same-o” books on the shelf. Refreshing and defining new tale that must be told. Great Job! I recommend it highly.

    In Anne Rice's surprising and compelling best-selling novel, the first of her strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers, readers and listeners were spellbound as Rice conjured up a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast.

    I am an Ann Rice fan and missed her writings for a while, but no more--SHE’s BACK. Her new series the Wolf Gift Chronicles is just great. The warmth of her characterization makes you feel you know these people, in both their human and wolf forms. The descriptive series make you want to go walk around and enjoy the place described. The Christmas festival that I read about was amazing-if only I could have gone myself--but I did and enjoyed every minute.

    I am awaiting book 3. Thank you Ann Rice for writing again.

    When Nicole Phillips agreed to hire a housekeeper, she pictured someone a little frumpy and almost certainly female. Instead, she gets gorgeous, unmistakably male Jake Colson. The man is proving indispensable in the kitchen - and everywhere else. Except Jake might not be a mortal man at all. Who wouldn't want to be a tall, dark, powerful vampire? Jake, for one. He's barely had time to adjust to his new state before he's roped into a family favor.

    I have read all of Lynsay Sands Argeneau Vampire series--it has become a welcomed friend. This book will not disappoint, still fun, one of those books you have to read. Marguerite Argeneau is up to her matchmaking tricks and this one has attempted murder and lots of new family. Always a fun read that will leave you with a smile and awaiting the next story.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I normally don’t read science Fiction but took a chance on this one---I couldn’t put it down. It had a way of drawing you back. Well written and preformed. Most importantly the thoughts behind it were different--somewhat predictable but it didn’t hurt the story. A good read.

    Her job description is the "tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers". What this really means in FBI profiler Jace Valchek's brave new world - one in which only one percent of the population is human - is that a woman's work is never done. And real is getting stranger every day. Jace has been ripped from her reality by David Cassius, the vampire head of the NSA. He knows that she's the best there is in the business, and David needs her help in solving a series of gruesome murders of vampires and werewolves.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    The topic of this story is intriguing and frightening. Robert Langdon again takes us on an adventurous tour of Florence, then on Venice, to end up in Turkey. That in it self was great but the subject of over population and the catch-22 that takes you through the twists and turns to find the end is uncontrollable.
    Never a moment of dullness, I applaud you Dan Brown on another great story. Now I hope the Dan Brown tours will expand to Italy.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Story

    I have read all of Jeaniene Frost's books and loved the journey. The Prince Novel side books are fun from beginning to end. "Twice Tempted" is a must read. Vald and Leila are a couple with problems. Leila, a human that has gained unique powers after being hit with lightning finds she can strike out with electricity from her right arm, and is able to gain knowledge about those she touches. Of course this makes it hard to live as a normal human without frying someone with a friendly hug. Now her new bow is a very old vampire, Vlad. When they hook up her life becomes a roller coster of adventures. These two don't seem to think it is possible to live with each other to find they can't live without each other. Love blossoms amongst mayhem. And yet you will be laughing throughout the whole story with the humor of Jeaniene Frost. The narration by Tavia Gibert was done beautifully. All I need to know is when is the next book coming out?
