    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    Another adventure with Cat and Bones, not quite as good as some of their previous ones but a nice surprise in the end! I will listen as long as they keep coming! I love Cat and Bones and I love the narrator too, she makes these characters and it would not be the same without her. Plus...Cat and Bones have a great sex life!!!!

    I love all Christina Lauren's books, this one was quite tame compared to the others but you will find yourself loving and laughing with Ruby and Niall. I missed Grace Grant but Charlotte Penfield did a good job narrating and Jonathan Cole was very good.

    Desperate to find her sister, Erin goes to the only man in Houston who can help her - Ivan Markovic. The intimidating, tattooed Russian operates one of the most elite mixed-martial arts training centers in the world but it's his shadowy past and reputed connections with Houston's underworld that interest her most. To find her sister, she'll need the help of her big, scary Russian protector - but asking for help from a man like Ivan carries a steep price, one that might just include her heart.

    There is nothing sexier than the Russian accent and the narrator just didn't have it. The story was ok but the narration just killed it for me, I think this would have been a promising series with a better narrator, I can't continue on with this series.

    "My name is Mike Ross and I'm a Ferryman - like in the Greek myth. I didn't ask for, or really want, the job, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Most ghosts are okay and just need a little help to get where they need to go. Unfortunately, there are lots of exceptions, like power-mad psychopaths, spirits still trying to fight battles long since lost, and the worst of the lot - the Skinwalkers. They live vicariously by possessing people and controlling them like puppet masters. Then they toss them aside when they've outlived their usefulness."

    I got interested in other listens and just could not finish. The narrator was good and the story not so bad, just could not keep my interest. This was not the first of the series so I missed a lot and I could not make sense of many of the characters and their relevance so I gave up. I may finish one day if I am desperate!

    For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia's new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure. Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    I love Eve and Rourke, you can listen to these stories in any order and they all make sense. Great plot and I love listening to Eve track down her killer! This story even has a few teary-eyed moments. Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas and all the other characters are realistic and recognizable as well, she does a great job! The killer in this story is especially heinous and Ms. Ericksen really shows her talent! Lastly, I love how Rourke loves Eve...it's special!

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    This has been in my wish list for awhile, why did I wait so long! I love these characters and the narration is perfect....Mr. Glenister is Cormoran Strike! The story is full of intrigue, suspense and unique characters and takes you on a very long journey to the conclusion. I love how Cormoran and Robin's relationship is a constant "wonder" in the back of your mind and throughout the whole story and even at the conclusion...is there a chance and do I want them together? They are a GREAT team! I hope we have more in the future!

    New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper returns with the new novel in her riveting Bishop/SCU series. How do you make peace with the dead if the dead aren’t ready to forgive? In New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper’s new novel, the answer lies in the twisting shadows of a small town, and its secrets yet unearthed.... When Deacon James’s younger sister Melanie calls him, terrified, he goes to her aid in the small Georgia town of Sociable. What he finds is a scared young woman in the grip of what she insists is a paranormal nightmare—and murder. Two local men have been killed under mysterious circumstances. And Melanie is the prime suspect.

    Story

    I loved reading the Bishop series...there were really creepy, heinous murderers and their crimes solved by the FBI with just a hint of psychic ability. Now the stories are more about multiple characters, all with their psychic ability and a little about the murder they are trying to solve. In the end there generally is a big explosion of "dark energy" and Bishop has a handful of new feds with psychic ability! The narrator was good, considering the amount of people in this story.
