  • Midnight Alley: Morganville Vampires, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Rachel Caine
    • Narrated By Cynthia Holloway

    Claire Danvers' college town may be run by vampires but a truce between the living and the dead has made things relatively safe - for a while. Now people are turning up dead, a psycho is stalking Claire, and an ancient bloodsucker has proposed private mentoring.

    Judith says: "interesting books, don't like the narrator"
    "Good story, but abrupt unfinished ending"

    I've enjoyed this series so far, but was very surprised, then disappointed when this one ended, completely unresolved. I even checked to see if I'd forgotten to download the 2nd half - but that wasn't the case. I imagine it was meant to be a cliff hanger - but instead it just feels as though the book stops for no reason. Many authors can manage to write series where each book still has a complete story - and this was true for the first two books of the series - but not this one. If this is the pattern for future books in the series - they've lost me as a buyer.

  • Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Patricia Briggs
    • Narrated By Alexander Cendese, Lorelei King

    Mercy Thompson’s world just got a whole lot bigger... A collection of all-new and previously published short stories featuring Mercy Thompson, “one of the best heroines in the urban fantasy genre today” (Fiction Vixen Book Reviews), and the characters she calls friends...

    Malinda says: "Great compilation of stories from the Mercy-verse"
    "Misleading description"

    Not as described. Mercy is in 1 story. I found most to be luke-warm; enjoyed the latter stories that featured Ben and Mercy and one of the early stories that featured Charles. The others featured characters I have no investment in and I found I was easily distracted and uninterested.

  • After the Night

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Linda Howard
    • Narrated By Natalie Ross
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen." (Linda Howard)

    Judy says: "Can I give 6 stars?"
    "I don't get it..."

    I've enjoyed many of Linda Howard's books - but not this one. If you like books that feature women who decide they are "in love" with men who
    treat them badly - then this is for you.

    Even though Gray was fully aware that Faith was completely innocent of her family's bad behavior, he was abusive to her throughout the majority of the book(called her trash, tried to drive her out of town, manipulated the rest of the town to snub her and refuse her service). His rationale for treating her badly is that he wanted to protect his mentally ill mother and sister - so at best, this makes him a lame mama's boy. Of course, Gray wanted to sleep with Faith even when he was trying to drive her out of town - and he expected her to be "on board" for that.

    Faith, on the other hand, had many redeaming qualities, but the fact that she decided that she was in love with Gray, regardless of the fact that he NEVER treated her well - made it impossible for me to have any respect for her. As far as I can tell, as a child, Faith decided she loved Gray because of his looks - I can accept that since she was a kid. What I can't understand is why a full grown woman would be "in love" with a man who, for no rational reason, has always treated her badly.

    I know my opinion strays from the rest of the reviewers - but I found this book painful to listen to.
