    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    Overall

    I've been looking for good audio books after BDB series and found this almost on par. It was entertaining and worth the credit.

    The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

    A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

    "Fierce Female Protagonist, mystery and intrigue!"

    What did you like best about this story?

    This was my first Haruki Murukami story that set off a Murukami Marathon that ended on my last book, Wild Sheep Chase, after ten others. I loved these marvelous unique mysteries and incredible characters and although I later decided that the Wind Up Bird Chronicals are my favorite, I have never gotten over my all time favorite character in this novel Aomame. I thought about her in between reads and felt a huge loss at the end of the story. I still like to think that I eat a little better and stretch a little more because of her and if I needed to I might use a long needle to defend myself.

    Werewolf princess Blu Masterson won’t allow her seductive vampire husband to consummate their marriage with his bite, marking her forever. Alone in a secluded estate with her sworn enemy, Blu curses the marriage arranged to bring their rival nations together, especially since Creed Saint-Pierre calls out to her most feral desires.

    Overall

    The female character is whiney and sooo not funny, the vampire has a stereo-typical transilvanian accent and the whole story is about as interesting as a bucket of warm spit. move on to something, try patricia briggs, now that woman can write!

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    AMC says: "Promising New Series"
    "Unexpected"
    Overall

    Really enjoyable, I didn't know what to expect but was very pleased. J.R. Ward is such a good writer.

    Gabriel wakes deep within the ground, and the first sensation he feels is an overwhelming hunger for blood. But as he hunts the dark streets of Paris for prey, a voice calls to him, soothing, calming, giving him the strength to control his craving. Francesca Del Ponce is a healer, a woman who radiates goodness as powerfully as the sun does light.

    Cheryl says: "dark series 2"
    "Eye Rolling & Gooey"
    Overall

    I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes and groaned when the repetitive ramble began about how stoic these characters are.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    Kickez says: "This is book 1 of the Argeneau Vampire Series"
    "Pass on this narrator"
    Overall

    I just couldn't get past the narrator, it was just so slow & mundane.
