Don't start with this book. Start in the beginning, and read all the books in order. They just get better, and better. I think there's a whole new beginning in this book. Unlike most series, that seem to go stale after awhile, Ms Ward, has completely recaptured my interest in the series, with this book. I love how she has several stories going on at the same time, and the new group of bad guys are really getting interesting. Unlike the lessors though, you kinda start liking these guys, hoping they will join forces at some point. She leaves enough unresolved stories, to mark your calendar for the next installment. The narration is excellent, to make it a "must listen"
Another screwed up murder mystery with a hysterical sense of humor. Carl Hiaasen knows how to spin a good yarn and George Wilson delivers every morbidly funny punch line with perfection. Each unique character is brought to life then intermingled into one hilarious tale of murder, blackmail, and deception.
I felt Mac and Baron's story was finished with the last Fever book, and "Iced' was to be a spin off series that would wrap around different characters (Dani, Riodan, Dancer, and Christian). I loved "Iced" and developed a big soft spot in my heart for Dani, that I never had in the Fever books. I was disappointed in this book, with the path chosen for Dani and the small part she played. Basically, this was a Mac book (which isn't a bad thing) in itself, but I felt it ruined "Iced", and the kid that stole the show.
Love these amusing characters with their rough talking banter. The narrator has them down to a 'T', never disappointing, with the mad cap stories of Heaven and Hell, and all that lies between.
A wonderfully told ending to the Odd Thomas series. David Aaron Baker makes Odd come to life again in this tale, that recounts all the other adventures and pulls the links together, as Odd returns home to fight his final battle against evil. His old friends come back in to this story to help, along with some new allies. Our hero boy is as humble and lovable as ever, while he endures the pain of killing his foes, becoming once again the saintly soldier for 'good'.
Sandman Slim is now Lucifer, getting bored with Hell and all the politics. Demons are still trying to kill him there, so he has to sneak out to have any life at all. He escapes back to home and finds out there have been a lot of changes. Great narration of all the characters help to make this series so interesting, with its warped sense of humor that will keep me coming back for more.
I've listened to all the series in order, with James Marsters narration. James Marsters is Harry Dresden in my mind. I was not paying attention when I bought and downloaded Ghost Story,then was unpleasantly surprised to hear a switch in narrators. John Glover did an excellent job, if you weren't so used to James Marsters. So, I can only give this one 4 stars overall, thinking the story was most likely 5 stars.
Harry does a lot of reminiscing throughout the book, catching everyone up on his past life, while he faces an uncertain future, since his death. Kinda like Scrooge, we see his past, then how his actions have affected the people left behind. A good story.
Wow! Talk about changes, that's putting it mildly. This book ends with a whole new ballgame. It starts out with a bang, when Harry learns he and Susan have a daughter, that's been kidnapped. He's struck with all kinds of emotions about being left in the dark for 8 years, but has to put them aside when he begins the quest of rescuing the child.
Gathering aide from most all the endearing characters from the previous episodes, Harry is on a life and death mission, that costs him more personally than we've ever seen thus far. Long held secrets are revealed, deals with the most evil are made, and life changing events happen, not only for Harry, but others close to him.
This one leaves you thankful "Ghost Story" is out there on the shelf, because waiting for the next book would be excruciatingly painful.
How do you solve the mysterious death, when the body is found in a locked and bolted room (from the inside). Sean Duffy tries to find the answer in order to bring him closer to an IRA bomber that has escaped from prison. As usual, the novel is loaded with unique characters, read with perfection by Gerard Doyle. Sean has his problems with being accused of a crime he did not commit, then finds himself going down memory lane when his newest assignment is to find an old acquaintance intent on killing the Prime Minister.
This is the third of the series, and Sandman is back in Hell trying to rescue his old girlfriend and be done with Mason. The full cast is there from the previous books, so read these in order to get the full effect. I really enjoy all the anti-hero, hero stuff, with the gruff attitude and colorful characters. MacLeod Andrews seems to grow on you from book to book. The harsh edgy voice seems to suit Sandman along with the rest of the cast.
The second of the series that has skipped forward a couple of years finding Brynn on a search and rescue team in the snow covered mountains, unknown to them they are walking into a rescue of a notorious serial killer. On that mission is Alex, supposedly a US Marshall. He has his own agenda for being on the team, however his priorities change when he sees Brynn. Lies unfold as things progress and the situation worsens when sickness and injury plague the search. The book is pretty predictable but remained enjoyable.
