    On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote mining town will disappear, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins, and not a single bone will be found - not even the gold that was rumored to have been the pride of this town. One hundred and thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a leading history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so they can learn what happened.

    Overall

    I loved this story. It seems like it is hard to fine something that is really unique and interesting but this story delivered! I thoroughly enjoyed it and the two storys between the different time periods was fantastic. I am sure it helped that I love a good horror and anything with a historical twist is a huge plus for me but it wasn't just that. The narrator was great. I did not notice the intake of breath that another reviewer mentioned but I was not listening to this on my headphones either. Maybe I was just too caught up in the suspense? Note to the author: if you write up a really amazing story I don't think continual use of the F-word is necessary - just sayin'. I still gave it 5 stars because it didn't ruin it for me but I think it would have been just as good without say 50 of those.

    As a new plague related to the rabies virus infects millions, America recalls its military forces from around the world to safeguard hospitals and other vital buildings. Many of the victims become rabid and violent but are easily controlled—that is, until so many are infected that they begin to run amok, spreading slaughter and disease.

    Overall

    This was "OK" I didn't mind all the military stuff and thought that sort of set this story apart from other zombie books but I would have liked to see these guys use their military expertise to actually try to survive. The whole book was about how they just couldn't accept what was happening and it got to be a little frustrating. A better zombie book with military references is by far Day by Day Armageddon and the sequel Beyond Exile by JL Bourne. There just didn't seem to be much plot past going from one street to the next... it was a bit shallow and two dimensional. Could have been so much better but not a total waste of a credit either. You can't completely fail when a zombie hoard are taking over a major metropolis, for those of us who love these zombie stories that is half the storyline requirment right there. So three stars for somewhat entertaining but think the author really missed a lot of great opportunity to write a 5 star story.

    Anna Strong is trained for anything-until she's attacked one night, only to awaken in a dark world that exists between the living and the dead. Here, Anna struggles with her love for the two men who inhabit the realms of each: Max, a human DEA agent, and Avery, a Night Watcher who joins Anna in pursuit of the vampire who changed her life. Now, as her two worlds collide, fate plunges Anna into the ultimate battle between good and evil - where survival is not just for the living.

    Overall

    and I LOVE a good vampire tale. The story line was BORING and predictable but what really tanked this one for me was the narration. It was HORRENDOUS!! Monotone, flat and uninspired are three words that describe the reading of this blah blah boring story. Glad I didn't spend more than $5 for this one. Even that was too much.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "Great Series"
    Overall

    I am a newcomer to this series and I have really enjoyed it! Entertaining, interesting and action packed. The humor Bones brings to the story is great and the chemistry is perfect. This series is much better than Vampire Academy but based on some of the steamy scenes, I'd say for a bit older crowd. The only reason this is getting 4 stars instead of 5 is the narrator. She's a bit high piched and squeaky at times and sadly she doesn't do much for Bone's but his personality shines through her annoying narration.
