    Gin Blanco is hard-nosed, sexy, and lethal. Nicknamed "The Spider," she's a stone elemental assassin who brings her unique mix of magic and tact to every assignment, no matter the target. There's a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name "Burn" sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight…

    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.

    It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher - and the victim's wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom - if it exists at all - is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects...except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant.

    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.

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural. Body and soul - they're also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho.

    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.

    Welcome to the mountains of Pennsylvania, one of the last vestiges of the human race. Lance York, a self-described loser in another life, has rediscovered himself in the midst of the apocalypse. Along with a cadre of other survivors, including the hardened, sexy Cass, Lance has taken refuge in a compound, struggling to survive the onslaught of monstrosities descending upon them each night.

    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.

    This series is brilliant. I am so glad I stumbled across it. Ben Aaronovitch captures British sarcasm perfectly, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith narrates it wonderfully! Together, the book and the narration really bring the London experience alive. It reminds me so much of living in London that I want to pop over to Drummond Street for some Indian food.

    When two cannibalistic, gravely wounded men stagger into the town of Gehenna, all hell breaks loose. Infamous outlaw Mad Dog McCall, stuck in the city jail, must fight for his life to escape. The lonely, intelligent, and snarky Karen must make horrific sacrifices to survive the night against the growing army of the dead. Together they set upon a journey of biblical proportions, fighting against the living and the infected, hoping against hope to find a safe haven in the middle of Hell. The Old West can't fathom the zombie hoard that is about to consume it.

    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.

    Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and dissected by three rivers, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an idyllic city. It's quiet, the traffic is nonexistent, and floating down the Allegheny River on a boat is peaceful and serene. It's perfect...as long as you can ignore the mindless monstrosities roaming the streets, vampires ruling the night, and the insane, power-hungry human survivors. Mankind has devolved, mutating into mindless horrors. Only weeks ago, they built skyscrapers and traveled to space.

    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.

    Life isn't kind to Lance York. A full-time job has eluded him for years, his wife loathes the sight of him, his bank accounts are empty, and his wealthy father-in-law revels in his failures. After he lunges in front of a car to save a sick and disoriented woman, Lance awakens in a quarantined hospital. A devastating plague is spreading worldwide, driving those infected with it insane. Their bodies begin to mutate into horrors that have haunted mankind's nightmares for centuries.

    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.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    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.
