    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?

    Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness.... Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she's ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel. Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn? From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

    I took this book on a whim--I was not disappointed. The story was compelling, and well structured. Every step in the story pulls you to the next. Characters are interesting, and hold your interest to want to learn more. It is not my normal choice of books, but I'm so happy I did read it. Now I need Book 2.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Story

    I have read and enjoyed the Iron Druid Chronicles. But to be honest the story was not connecting as I wanted it to. Yes I'm the reader and require my stories to flow. I started to see each book as another romp with only some characters to be constant. Well I must say thank you. "Shattered" is the glue that holds the tales together. It brought things together to make sense--even to Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid himself. I can not wait until book 8 to see where they will go from here. Love the new character, Owen Kennedy,very colorful. And Granuaile has helped the story since she was added.

    I want to write to you Ms. Kim Harrison, You have brought us a world of a Witch that lived in and old church with vampires and pixies and deal with demons too. Rachel has been learning and growing more powerful as the series has grown. This was a great 13th book. It said good bye to some and let us see the ending of an era for Rachel. BUT--we need more. This is not an end to Rachel's story, her story continues . Yes it is true you have done a great job with this last book--so you call it. But we as readers need more--Rachel's wedding and a baby--for starts. We need more! What would this child bring into play--fun, fun, fun! You have to let us see Rachel as a mother. Write novellas or a group of short stories if you feel you can not do a novel that let us see what life is like for Rachel in the future. At least one more book. Please-we are not tired of Rachel yet.
    Thank you Marguerite Gaven, You have done a great job over the 13 books in this series. I hear your voice and I'm right back into the story where we left off the last time. Thank you

    Story

    I thought the book was a great adventure. The last book left us behind the wall in Blackveil and I have to say a hard book to continue a series from. What could you write to top that adventure and keep the story moving forward.
    I really didn't know where this story would take us without letting us down. Well Kristen Britain, you did it. The book took us to newer and higher places I didn't expect to go to at all. Excellent transition story and one that I couldn't but down. The questions left unanswered are a great opening to the next part of Karigan's story and leaving us wanting the next book. Is the information Karrigan brought him going to be helpful? Has our green rider changed from her experiences? Will there be a war?
    Extremely well written and Ellen Archer, your performance I always applaud. Thank you and I can't wait for the next book

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    Deborah Harkness trilogy has ended perfectly--you must read them all to travel on an a journey of love--time--and change. You will not regret purchasing all three books. It must be read, because a movie, which I hope they make, will never cover everything that is in this trilogy.
    Thank you Deborah Harness-Please write more.
    Thank your Jennifer Ikeda- you read these books with passion--great job.

    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.

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.
