    Story

    I read the first of this series, and listened to this one. Have to say, I like this series either way. Although, with listening to it, I found my ears hurting, as I didn't want to give up til the book was done.
    I like Alex, she's not a perfect heroine with all the answers, but seems to be making the right moves, until the book unfolds and you see where one good deed causes a whole lot of trouble in this world and faerie.
    I like the men in her life too, but where it will go with either of them, is a mystery, but you can see a door slightly ajar, that can swing either way, or remain as is, which is the best for now. At any rate, the stories are interesting, with the right amount of mystery, action, romance, and supernatural happenings.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    Story

    Northern Ireland in 1981 during "The Troubles", one murder, then another, seems to be a serial killer of homosexuals, but is it? Sean Duffy is in charge and going to find out, but has many obstacles to cross trying to get to the conclusion.
    This book recreates a great backdrop of the politics and civil uprisings of that time. Was a good history lesson for me, with a fascinating crime mystery to solve.
    The narration is exceptional with the accents and character differentiation.
    Glad to hear this is the first of a trilogy.

    Story

    Faythe is totally self centered. If you keep reading this series, you'll have to adjust to her doing one stupid mistake after another and breaking the heart of the man that loves her. As far as the werecats go, I like the characters and the situations that arise. It has an interesting adventure and mystery going on. I'm reading the next installment now, hoping Faythe's character will grow at some point to be more like able. (Still working on that one) For someone that wants to be a leader and enforcer, she just doesn't have a clue at times.

    Long Beach homicide detective Danny Beckett can’t escape the pain. It’s everywhere: in the injuries that earned him a year-long medical leave; in the suffering of every victim he’s ever encountered; in the agony of his past. But he must keep the pain at bay to prove he still has what it takes to do the job. So it’s only fitting that his first major case back is a gruesome one: A California congressman’s daughter-in-law and grandchildren have been brutally murdered, and the carnage is some of the worst Danny’s ever seen. Is it a mob hit? Political retribution? A random sex crime? Nothing quite adds up….

    A good title for this one, as the author gives us plenty of insight about chronic pain while solving his second murder mystery. I liked the book and wished I would have read it instead of listening. The narrator changed from the first installment and I had trouble with following this guy. Much of the time, all the voices sounded the same, which turned out to be a bad thing when there were so many characters to keep track of. The characters also had foreign names that were hard to keep track of. All and all it was a good crime story, but I would recommend the Kindle for this one.

When Danny arrives at the school, the blood-spattered crime scene turns even his veteran stomach. What could this young woman have done to make her the target of such a violent attack?

    Story

    This is the first of the Long Island Homicide series, which introduces us to Danny Beckett and his partner Jen. We get enough background on these characters to like them and want to hear more about them, along with an interesting police procedural. They're good cops with some believable issues, and no super human qualities, but manage to get their man in the end with good police work and keen intuition. Some reviews have said that it's too easy to figure out the murderer. Could be for some, but there's a long list of suspects thrown in to the mix, which leaves the reader wondering if they actually do have it right.
    What I liked the most about the story was the character development. Like Harry Bosch and Dave Robicheaux, they're not perfect but have sparked our interest enough, to keep us going back to hear more from them. Glad to see there's two more books after this one.

    No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.

    Story

    Don't listen to this one while driving. I was almost crying at the wheel. Family bonds, pack bonds, bonds of friendship, they all get tested in this dangerous episode. Kate is put in to one perilous situation after another, as she and Rolland are out for a showdown, but her losses are great along the way. As Kate's heart breaks for the ones she loves, so did mine, as Renee Raudman did her usual excellent job of bringing Kate, Curan, friends and foes to life. This story was exceptionally emotional, as told through the eyes and heart of Kate, with a turning point in the end.
    If you follow the series, be ready for one of the best episodes yet. If you don't follow the series, go to the beginning and catch up. You wont' be disappointed.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York in ruin and Raphael's Tower under siege by enemy archangels. Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York . . . and on Raphael.

    Story

    This has to be the best of the series so far, but you need the complete background of the other books to fully understand what's taking place. Another Archangel is out to conquer Raphael's territory and just who it is at first is a mystery, complicated by other women out to steal Raphael from Elena.
    It's a beautifully told tale as the listener gets picturesque descriptions of characters and surroundings that puts you to mind of eyes lingering on a work of art. The author certainly has a way of pulling you out of the world about you, and sinking you in to the fantastical world of Archangels.
    The love between Elena and Raphael is in the center of this story, as mysterious things are happening to Raphael terrifying Elena.
    War outbreaks and it's non-stop action with an ending that leaves the listener in contemplation of things to come.

    This is yet another great addition to the series that just gets better.
    Morgan is framed for a murder and comes to Harry for help. Yes, Harry whom Morgan has tried to execute many times, but Harry being the good honest wizard he is, tries to help Morgan and find out who the real killer is.
    He runs in to all kinds of obstacles while being aided by his faithful friends and family.
    Full of non-stop action in the typical Dresden way, also has a couple of turning points in the end, with new alliances being formed and a sad turn in Harry's personal life.
    The series never disappoints and the narration is always A++

    This is just gore with no direction or meaning. I couldn't finish it.

    Story

    I think 3 stars is the perfect number for this one. It was an interesting tale, with a couple of likeable characters, as in Zeeman, the doctor and Quizel the Hangman. They had a special rapport between them that gives you a chuckle now and then. The Hangman is portrayed as a just man and not a cruel man. All and all the story isn't horrifying, as one might think it will be. It's a murder (several murders) mystery that Quizel and Zeeman set out to solve in order for an innocent woman's life to be spared, and to save the lives of several children. It shows the narrow mindedness of people, as mass hysteria takes over. Then and now, some things never change.

    In the mid-19th century, Leonie Russell works alongside her husband, Junius, an oysterman in the Washington Territory. At night she continues her father’s lifelong obsession - collecting artifacts and studying the native culture that once thrived in the area. On her 37th birthday, Leonie discovers a mummy protruding from a riverbank - a mummy that by all evidence shouldn’t exist. As Leonie searches for clues to the mummy’s origins, she begins to feel a strangely mystical connection to it. When Junius’s long-lost son, Daniel, appears one day, a native elder insists that Leonie wear a special shell bracelet for protection.

    This has to be one of the best stories I've heard lately. Leonie Russell's world is turned upside down, when she discovers a mysterious mummy in the river close to her home. She and her husband Junius find Indian artifacts for a buyer from the Smithsonian. This mummy however, has a message for Leonie that unsettles the life she has known for the past twenty years and she's in no rush to give her up.
    Clue after clue surfaces in this tale and had me speculating throughout as to what the mummy was trying to covey. Then when a link to Jun's past appears at the door, everything completely unravels in everybody's world.
    I loved these characters and the world they lived in was so descriptive you can imagine being there.
    Completely deprived me of sleep, as I couldn't put it down.
