    Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy. When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade - he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost.

    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"

    The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council - and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden....

    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++

    Welcome to Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Miles from everything, with one road in and out, this peaceful town has never needed a full-time police force. Until now.... A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven's only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.

    All the poor reviews are true. It's one grizzly murder after the other. I like a good murder mystery. I like a good sci-fi adventure. I like JA Konrath's Jack Daniels series. I don't like slasher movies, and I think that is what this is in book form.
    This is just gore with no direction or meaning. I couldn't finish it.

    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    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.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    Story

    R rated or X rated, take your pick. This book is not a YA werewolf romance. It's hard core sex, but has it's place in this love story of two very strong alpha wolves. What I like about Taryn, is that she was a strong character, so none of that whiny female always doing the wrong thing and misinterpreting everything going on around her. This female is bold, hardened from her upbringing, but not without her problems. Trey tends to easily go feral from his unfortunate upbringing, until Taryn calms him and his wolf. Not a bad story as the couple form an alliance with their own personal motives, that we all know will eventually end with true love.

    Author of the National Book Award-winning All the Pretty Horses, Cormac McCarthy is one of the most provocative American stylists to emerge in the last century. The striking novel Blood Meridian offers an unflinching narrative of the brutality that accompanied the push west on the 1850s Texas frontier.

    I have read several McCarthy books and have loved them. However, this one did little for me. I kept wanting to just quit and listen to something else, but was interested in "The Kid" enough to keep going. I wish I would have stopped half way through.
    I'm like some of the other listeners, thinking that if I had read it rather than try to listen, I might have gotten more from the story. I tended to let my mind wander away and ended up lost at points. The narrator did an excellent job, I think it's more in the writing style that made this story hard to follow.

    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    Story

    Kept me in stitches, as usual. Another madcap zany tale from Carl Hiaasen brought to life superbly by George Wilson. There's no way to tell all the antics in this story, other than there's been a major hurricane in Florida, and everyone is either suffering from the effects or out to make a quick buck from residents suffering. Somehow Carl Hiaasen makes tragedy humorous with everyone getting their just due in the end. A favorite character of mine is back in this tale, Skink (the ex-governor) with the help of Trooper Jim straighten out the criminals and help to play match maker in the process. If you enjoy 'off the wall' humor, then give this one a listen.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    This is turning out to be a great series to follow. I hope she keeps up the good work. This book deals with a missing person that Cormoran is hired to find, of course he's found dead very early, which puts Cormoran's client on the suspect list.
    This book picks up where the first one left off, with Cormoran dealing with his own engagement breakup and Charlotte's quick engagement to another man, along with his personal struggles with his own abuse of his leg. Robin is engaged to Matthew, and he doesn't like Cormoran, along with Cormoran not understanding Robin's pursuit to be a private eye.
    We see all the personal things going on in the middle of solving the murder case, and what a complex list of suspects we have. All authors or publishers with their own set of little eccentricities that delights the listener as the story unfolds. The book keeps you wondering til the very end, and the narrator couldn't be better.

    Story

    Not since Outlander have I enjoyed this series so much. This novel was right back to the roots of Jamie and Claire's love. A deeply romantic novel that makes you sigh, chuckle, and rejoice, bringing all the key characters together helping one another throughout their individual hardships. A few old characters, thought to be lost make cameo appearances here and there, for a fun and unique spin in the story.
    As usual, this is a long one that could have been shortened a bit by leaving out some boring surgery and filler in the last part of the novel, that just didn't seem to have much relevance. Luckily though, the majority of the novel dealt with character development making the 45 hours fly by, and not leaving us with a dozen chliffhangers like the previous book. A couple of threads are left dangling for the next installment, but for the most part we did see a conclusion to this novel, which I will probably listen to again just for the mere pleasure of it.

Later, when she’s found brutally murdered, Detective Jackson thinks it’s an open-and-shut case against the boy’s ex-con father. Then new evidence points to a rapist who’s becoming more violent with each attack. Raina’s lover, Jamie, knows what the victims have in common, but won’t tell for fear of revealing her own secrets.

    Story

    I really like the story this author has to tell, but don't know that I'll continue with the series. This story starts out with an open-shut case for Jackson, that ends up being a 'who Really done it?'. You think you have things figured out, but she tends to drop a rather unknown character in the mix at the end, which I'm not complaining about. I don't enjoy always knowing the ending in advance, which happens quite often.
    What I don't like about these books is the way the author is constantly preaching her beliefs, to us, the readers. In this story the author sets out to clear up everyone's misconceptions about homosexuals, as well as what natural remedy to take as a sleep aid, and how grilling meat is bad for you. It's just TOO much at times, and tends to ruin the whole book for me. It's a shame because I really thought the murder mystery was a good one.
