    In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    Wow! What can I say? Kim Harrison did an extraordinary job at wrapping up her "Hollows" series. We finally find out the answers to so many questions that have been floating around for almost the entire series.
    I really liked that Ivy is such a prevalent part of this book. She has really sacrificed a lot because of her love and friendship for Rachel. So it was nice to see some light come into her sometimes sad existence.
    There is plenty of Trent in this book too. Which was GREAT! But one of the best parts of this book is the relationship between Al and his "itchy witch".
    What a good book. I'm still wheeling. It's just that incredible. I wish other series I've read would have ended half this good.

    I kinda stumbled upon this book. It turned out to be really good. The main character is very interesting and well written.
    I liked the premise. An older women walks into a bar to drown her sorrows after her husband's death. Two vampires decide to make a bet to see how long it would take her to change, planning to kill her after the act. Instead, she escapes and has to figure out how to be a vampire on her own.

    It only gets more interesting. I highly recommend this book.

    I loved this book! I bought it as a Kindle edition first, and then I counted the days until it was released as an audio book.
    This book has every thing that fans of PNR love. Great characters with good chemistry, an engaging story and a lot of good old fashioned humor.
    LOVED IT!
    BTW Robert Petkoff is the perfect narrator for this series. He does a great job with all the many, many different accents.

When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals - unaware that he belongs to their world.

    I've read all of the books in the IAD series. But I'm sorry to say, this is my least favorite of them all. Which is sad , because I was really looking forward to Regin the Radiant's story.

    The problem I had was with the main male character, Declan Chase. He is just not a good man. The things he does are really cruel, and he doesn't seem to feel bad for all the pain he has inflected on the immortals he held in his prison. I just couldn't get over that.

    At the tender age of 14, Livia Drusilla overhears her father and fellow aristocrats plotting the assassination of Julius Caesar. Proving herself an astute confidante, she becomes her father’s chief political asset - and reluctantly enters into an advantageous marriage to a prominent military officer. Her mother tells her, "It is possible for a woman to influence public affairs," reminding Livia that - while she possesses a keen sense for the machinations of the Roman senate - she must also remain patient and practical.

    It is written in the same manner as Robert Graves' books. But, this time Livia gets her say.
    GREAT BOOK! I recommend it to all historical fiction fans.

    Don't get me wrong, I liked the last book in Patricia Briggs' Mercy Series. It is just that for some reason or another, Mercy is always a little better when Adam and her are separated for some of the story. With this book you get it all. Mercy at her finest . Solving the most complex situations.
    My only complaint, is that I wish Adam and Mercy's sex scenes where a little more detailed. I would like to know what they were thinking. All and all great bool. Well worth the credit.

    I'm a fan of Jacquelyn Frank and of Xe Sands. So I'm a little disappointed that I couldn't get into Ms. Frank's latest Nightwalker branch-off series. I couldn't get over the whole one body, two souls concept.

    But from reading some of my fellow Audible Book Readers reviews. A lot of you like this series very much. I'll have to wait for the next book (which is already in print) and see if it is more appealing to me. You never know.

    I just wish she would write the 4th book in the Shadowdellers series. Now, that is a HOT & interesting series. One of my all time favorites.

    This best-selling thriller has captivated over 4.5 million readers of all ages; V.C. Andrews’ fans know her mixture of vivid characters and ominous moods is highly addictive. Flowers in the Attic is the first book in a gripping series featuring the Dollangagers - a family haunted by a remorseless, demonic history. This tale of obsession, also made into a haunting movie, has made V.C. Andrews’ name synonymous with the best in dark suspense.

    Story

    I have no idea, how at the age of 13, I managed to get my hands on this book. But I did, and I became completely obsessed with it.
    I read it so much, that my Mother took it away from me. She said "I acted different and strange" while I was reading it.

    She must not have read "Flowers" before me. Because there is NO WAY she would have allowed me anywhere near this book. What with the child abuse, the incestuous affair, the murdered child, not to mention, the poisoning of the three legged pet mouse . I wouldn't let my kids read it either.

    So, imagine my surprise to find "Flowers In The Attic" while checking out the New Release page on Audible. All those old, strange feelings came rushing back. So, of course, I bought the book, downloaded it, and began listening right there and then. All the while feeling the familiar naughtiness of my youth. Like sneaking to the candy store without telling anyone (which I did a lot) .

    What are my thoughts and reactions to "Flowers" after all the time that has passed? Well first, I can't believe how much I remember from the story. I can still picture the characters exactly how I saw them as my younger self. And second, I'm amazed how well this story, which was written in the late 70's, has held up to the test of time. It's still a sad and very interesting tale of love, loss, and the ultimate betrayal.

    Would I recommend it? Yes, it's credit worthy. Alyssa Bresnahan is an experienced and talented narrator. Which as fellow audiobook readers, we know, can make or break even the best written books out there.

    FYI : While listening to this book, I acted "different and strange ". But no one noticed. :)

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    What can I say, this is one of the best series Audible has to offer. Each book is better than the last.
    The narration is PERFECT! Luke Daniel's performance, as the main character, Atticus, is right on. I swear, Author, Kevin Hearne and Mr. Daniels must be buddies. How else could Mr. Hearne 's wit, humor, and intensity be conveyed with such perfect pitch and play?

    I found myself lost in this book. Which is a very nice place to be. :)

    Worth the Credit? YES. I can not wait for the next book.

    HUMOUR. ACTION. DRUIDISM, AND SEXY.... EVERYTHING. What else can a girl ask for?!!!
