A war is coming to the Otherworld, and Savannah Levine has lost her magic. Spell Bound is the story of how Savannah learns to cope with life???s trials. This story does contain the whinny growing pains of maturation, but the immature complaining is handled with tact and insight resulting in a journey of growth and understanding instead of indulgent persecutory delusions. Beloved characters such as Adam, Elena, Clay, Paige, Lucas, Jamie, Hope, Cassandra, and Troy are back, and Johanna Parker does a great job with the narration. All and all, this is another wonderful installment from Kelley Armstrong.
There is nothing new in this trilogy. Zombies meet a bunch of Old West stereotypes in three short stories. Even though there is nothing new here, it is still a fun listen. Even though this trilogy doesn't provide a new take on the zombie folklore, this is still an entertaining listen. Listen to it for what it is and enjoy it.
I love this series for one very similar reason. This series takes eccentric secondary characters and repositions them as the primary characters of this apocalyptic novel. I always love the eccentric secondary characters; so, I was thrilled to find a series that stars them. While Brant narrative isn't as brilliant as Shaun of the Dead, it is still a fun and short listen. The narrator is passable but runs out of believable new voices toward the middle of the novel.
While this book doesn't really present anything new as far as apocalyptic books go, the main characters are rich and fully developed. In addition instead of including preppers as eccentric side characters, this book explores the nature of the survivalist or prepper mentality. Specifically, this book tries to incorporate how survivalists or preppers might fair in an apocalyptic USA. It is an interesting Naziesque twist. The narrator does a passable job.
Gin and the crew are back and adding members again. Pretty soon all of Southtown will be part of Gin's family. This is a hilarious and entertaining series. If you like female bad asses who have a very practical moral code and comfort food, you will like this series. I hope we see a Spider Cookbook someday. I also find it hilarious how often Gin thinks people have read her mind. If anyone assumed that much non-verbal communication in real life, s/he would be constantly frustrated by misunderstandings and criminally inefficient communication.
This is such a great series. It is full of urban fantasy, intelligence, humor, and sensible characters. I recommend this series to everyone. It is one of my favorites. Furthermore, the authors do a really good job filling in background information; so, if one is new to the series and doesn't start at Book 1, s/he will still be able to follow the plot. So glad Renee Raudman is back, because she is the voice of Kate Daniels.
I have been putting off reading/listening to this fan fiction, because I really didn't like the Twilight series. But the movie is coming out soon; so, I finally buckled and listened to this book. Just as I feared, it is pretty awful and full of two-dimensional female characters. If you are really interested in good fiction about sub/dom relationships, listen to 'The Dominatrix' by Emma Allan. It is a much better book.
This is exactly what a dominatrix exploration should be. It is positive, clear, and exciting. Everyone should read this book. Wonderful job!
Honestly, can anyone get enough Trent? The answer is no. Thank goodness Kim Harrison agrees. Kim Harrison's tomato-fearful world is back in gloriously full description which enables the reader/listen to really empathize with Rachel Mariana Morgan. Great job to writer and narrator.
Thirteen is the next book in Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. It is billed as the last book in this series. After a listen, it is clear why. Armstrong does a great job wrapping up the series and giving all the characters an end-some happy, some not. This is a strong addition to a wonderful series. NOTE: This series was turned into a TV show in 2013.
What would happen if a large portion of the Earth’s population died due to a deadly virus spread through genetically modified tomatoes? Read this book to find out. Kim Harrison has built an intriguing world of fiction, and Marguerite Gavin has given it life. If you like paranormal stories, you will enjoy this book.
