    High Magic has been lost to Valdemar centuries ago when the last Herald-Mage gave his life to save the kingdom from destruction by dark sorceries. Yet now the realm is at risk again. And Elspeth, Herald and heir to the throne, must take up the challenge, abandoning her home to find a mentor who can awaken her untrained mage abilities. But others, too, are being caught up in a war against sorcerous evil.

    Story

    The narrator seems to be channaling Captian Kirk and filling her narration with strange pauses and bizzare inflections. Every so often she starts speaking normally then seems to notice and goes back to the odd speach patterns.

    When Supernatural Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime, it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run; and she vows to catch the killer. Using her innate sixth sense, Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire that was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.

    Story

    It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. if you like vampire love stories you'll like this, but for me too much time was spent on the porn and not enough on the world (which is interesting) and story.

    Vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But in The Lunatic Café, she's about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems, especially in matters of the not-so-human heart.

    Story

    The story it's self wasn't bad. It was enjoyable in fact. Except for the several occasions where the random sound effects would drown out the narrator. This book specifically looses nearly a whole paragraph of action due to the sound of a dog barking over the narrator.
