    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    I rarely listen to anything other than Sci-Fi, but found myself drawn to this author. While others feel the narrator wasn't up to snuff, I liked the world weary aspect of Welliver's reading. I hope this isn't the last we hear from Bosch.

    Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors - and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan.

    Just can't listen any more. Another one jumps on the Vanilla S&M Dominance Band Wagon.

    Also, the Droning Carpathian Language and Translations! On and On! Had to return only 1/3 of the way through the narration.

    Taz is a member of a very successful rogue-hunting team. The rogues she and her teammates hunt include rogue vampires, ghouls, and shapeshifters, among others. Vampires have been legal citizens in the world for 500 years, but they do still have rogues from time to time.

    Story

    I was hoping this was another series in which to lose myself. It starts out fairly well, but I wanted to throw it out half way through the book. The explanations for the main character's actions and her dialogue are preachy and extremely judgemental. The words "It's/that's stupid..." are used constantly. I almost downloaded the e-version, just to count how many times "stupid" occurred.

    I found the main character unequivocably unlikable, and this was disappointing. I liked the idea of a former police officer turning into a bounty hunter, and maybe my expectations were too high. As the story progressed, I found myself less and less sympathetic to this character.

    I would have given it one star, but I still feel this series could be salvaged. It has a decent premise, but it reached the point where I felt "stupid" listening/reading it.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid. When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic.

    The Moon, shaken by the Anniversary Day tragedies, deals with devastation. The Earth Alliance believes another attack imminent, but no one knows where or when it will strike. Just like no one knows who ordered the attacks in the first place. The Moon’s chief security office, Noelle DeRicci, does her best to hold the United Domes government together. But Retrieval Artist Miles Flint, dissatisfied with the investigation into the Anniversary Day events, begins an investigation of his own.

    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about a crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares - taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school assembly, not knowing which door to enter - will pale in comparison to these 13 original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.
