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.
A diviner, an apprentice, an air elemental, and a mage walk into a bar..........This is a fun series. If you like the Dresden Files, you will like this. So, enjoy. I sure did.
This book is a raw, emotional, human journey through a dark point in life set in a crime novel. I don't know what to tell you besides this is a tough read/listen. It is full of intimate personal connections, mistakes, misunderstandings, and more. This is absolutely not the book I thought it was going to be, but in this case, that was a good thing.
Gail Carriger does it again. She has written another fantastic book creating another mandatory binge listening situation. Worth it every time. I also always find it hard to decide what my next book will be after I finish a book by Carriger, because what I really want to read is another book by Carriger.
This series just does not deliver on any of the possibilities. This story is about a bunch of assholes who continue to be assholes and feel sorry for themselves because they are misunderstood assholes. It is tiresome.
I am struggling a lot with a review for this book. I wanted this book to be great, but it isn't. The plot is essentially Harry Potter's world meets The Chronicles of Narnia with a touch of the NeverEnding Story. There isn't a lot new here. While I listened, I kept hoping for a twist in the worlds created by other authors, but there wasn't one. I wouldn't recommend this book to others, but I am currently listening to Book 2 in the hopes that the series novelty/hook will be delivered in the second installment of this series.
I love this series. The writing is good. The ideas are brilliant, and the characters are all tragically flawed and relatable. I will miss Rachel Morgan and her family.
Great melding of language, acting, and writing. Doesn't get old. Can't wait for the next book. Read it. You will like it. I love it.
The Peter Grant collection a paranormal detective series which takes place in central London. This assembly is a fun listen by a sci-fi author with Dr. Who cred. The stories are interesting with sharp wit, dry British humor, and can withstand ridiculous behaviors like binge listening. I have binge listened to the first three books, and I still love this series. If you like collections like The Dresden Files, you will enjoy this selection. Furthermore, the narrations are a perfect match for the writing. Worth the listen. Highly recommend.
This is a brilliant series that takes place in foggy day London town. The wit is sharp and tight and there are no idle moments in this blues walk whodounit. Take five and curl up with this series. You will enjoy it.
This is a fun series full of quirky characters, and I love quirky characters. Ravaged ups the stakes for the characters and has a lot more action than other installments in The Hunger. Ravaged also involves some interesting character development and fully introduces some newish and definitely awesome characters.
