    Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, 16-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -  hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes....

    Though I'm not one for angst, these teenage characters were interesting and not at all typical. I was curious enough to follow it to the end and enjoyed it very much.

    An interesting idea, good writing, good narration, good fighting etc. but personally I like a little humor between the blood and killing.

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    Don't know where the story could go from here, but would love more of Jake et al. Love everything about these books. Bronson Pinchot is one of my very favorite performers.

    Lori Foster’s steamy romances have earned her a place on the New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists. Trace of Fever stars Trace Rivers, a private mercenary looking for vengeance after his sister’s kidnapping. Trace has targeted human trafficker Murray Coburn as the man responsible, but his plans for payback get complicated when Coburn’s beautiful daughter turns up.

    Mary says: "What a thrill to have Jim Frangione narrating!"

    Story

    If you like the gorgeous,super tough guy falling hard for the beautiful, smart, sexy woman; with a little plot and danger to space out the sex; then you'll love this one. The tough guy with a well hidden devotion for the very few people he loves, and the girl who can deal with any situation (except resisting him) play the yoyo game between mindless need and rebelling against themselves and each other. Lori always delivers good foreplay and some interesting twists to keep you going.

    Mercy Thompson's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter, Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more.... After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted.....

    Story

    Another great story by Patricia Briggs and wonderful performance by Lorelei King. Patricia Briggs not only brings enough surprises to keep you listening (or turning pages) but also allows the characters to grow and stay interesting as well. I finished in 3 days and now I'm wanting more.....but it was too good to space out.

    I also love not being forced to listen to the same background material book after book after book, like some series. Occasional background may be necessary for new listeners but its so tedious for the faithful. It's not so bad with a book because you can skim over it but with audio (at least mine) it's difficult to skip the right amount. I also never feel the author is writing under a deadline and just wants to finish the book. The writing is consistent throughout.

    In Mississippi Jack, the fifth installment in the Bloody Jack series, the intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west, hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino-showboat, and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and other scoundrels along the way.

    The rendition of Mike Fink made my ears ache! The only thing I don't like about audio is the difficulty skipping the parts you can't stand. Otherwise, the book was great and I loved it!

    In My Bonny Light Horseman, the infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew.Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is she's secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secrets--all to save her dear friends.

    In 1968, after the first zombie outbreak, Wanda Mayhall and her three young daughters discover the body of a teenage mother during a snowstorm. Wrapped in the woman's arms is a baby - stone-cold, not breathing, and without a pulse. But then his eyes open and look up at Wanda, and he begins to move.The family hides the child - whom they name Stony - rather than turn him over to authorities who would destroy him. Against all scientific reason, the undead boy begins to grow....

    Never expected an optimistic zombie! Somewhat simplistic perhaps, but I didn't miss the angst that could have filled a zombie story. I loved Stony and even liked the ending! Looking forward to more by Daryl Gregory. Thanks for this one.
