    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.

    Story

    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"

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.

    Story

    This story starts out as a murder mystery, but the real story is of two men, one white, one black. The disappearance of a girl many years ago, brings back memories to these two men, when another girl disappears in present day. Both of their lives had been altered by the first, and will be altered once again by the second. It's a depressing tale of the south and how race relations were at that time.

    In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from being her mortal enemy to becoming her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are under way against the Mageri, and one man is behind it-an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver's only concern, as someone close to her has been arrested for treason.

    The wrap up book just didn't have the feel of the other books. Things seemed to fall together too easily and too quickly for all the characters. Even with the ending easily figured out, it seemed for a final novel, there was an abundance of loose ends, Kane and Sunny for instance. I enjoyed the series, even though this installment just felt lacking. At least it didn't leave me mad at the end, as some series do.

    This series just gets better, with a great cast of characters Nicole Poole brings to life. Silver finds out about her origin, who her family really is, and starts to trust again. This is an ongoing struggle as her new family widens in this installment. Nero is still a threat, Adam faces new obstacles, Silver gets a new opportunity with bodyguard included, prejudices become apparent when Logan and Silver try for a relationship, and Justice faces off with an old nemesis. A good series for sure.

    For nearly 300 years, the cryptic journal of Mary Dundas has kept its secrets. Now, amateur codebreaker Sara Thomas travels to Paris to crack the cipher.... Jacobite exile Mary Dundas is filled with longing - for freedom, for adventure, for the family she lost. When fate opens the door, Mary dares to set her foot on a path far more surprising and dangerous than she ever could have dreamed.

    I have read several of Ms Kearsley's novels and have enjoyed them very much. This story is enjoyable, and follows her usual formula with past intermingling with the present. That being said, I had a hard time getting invested with these characters. I had listened to half of the book, before I really cared about what was happening with any of them. I can't put a finger on it, other than there was quite a bit of rambling on and on at times, and Mary's adventure wasn't much of an adventure. Our modern day translator, Sarah, was also a rather dull character.

    For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.

    Story

    For fans of the series, it's not hard to say that this could possibly be the best yet. Jane's life is coming together finally with finding the much needed family she missed out on, and getting the kind of boyfriend she deserves. Along with that she and Beast have bonded as one, working and feeling in harmony. All this is a good thing, because she's battling the Son of Darkness, the most powerful of vampires that goes on a killing spree across the city. It's non stop action and exhaustion for the security crew, as Jane is ordered to take his heart, but leave him alive to return to Leo. That's a tall order that requires the assistance from the witches, and Molly still can't be trusted with her dark side. Brute the werewolf has an intriguing role in this book, sure to develop in future books. As always, Jane goes through more personal growth with her quest, where she decides exactly what she is, as a metamorphosis takes place. Love the narrator, she's Jane.

    Two brothers bound by more than blood discover a conspiracy that will change their destiny in the astonishing all-new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, the "frighteningly addictive" (Publishers Weekly) series by number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward.

    Story

    Sometimes series are just too long. I don't know why authors ruin a series by dragging it out. I loved the Black Dagger Brotherhood for years. They were totally original bad a... tough guys, that loved hard and fought harder. In the last couple of books, something has been lost from that original idea. I miss those nasty Lessors, the fight scenes, the tough talk camaraderie of it all. This one takes the cake as far as love stories go, because the author seems to really dislike her two main characters. Trez has been persecuted since birth and Selena has only been "good". They deserve a HEA. Even though Trez and Selena highlighted the novel, there were so many secondary stories going on, it made your head spin. Mainly the whole book was a set up for the next two books, namely bringing in Paradise and Craige for the upcoming "Blood Kiss", and spotlighting Rhage's survivor's remorse as an intro to the next BDB novel.

    Possible "Spoilers"
    The Shadows left so many previously dangling ends from other books, it's beginning to look like fringe. It touches on Xcor and Layla to the point of annoyance. Just do something with them, please. Assail is there, but tossed aside again, what's the deal with Lucas who begs for death and denied,(where euthanasia is presented as an acceptable practice in the vampire world, which brings me back to the author not liking her main characters), and what happened to Murhder? It would seem to me with 22 hours of listening that more could be settled.

    Story

    For the paranormal romance fancier, this series is turning out to be a treat. Not so much romance, as a romantic teaser. Silver has plenty of men in her life, all special in their own way, all out to protect her from Nero who wants her light. Logan Cross is the new 'man' that forces himself into her life, with unwanted intentions. Silver's life is in jeopardy once again, but the fun of this story begins.
    The story line is getting much more interesting with a couple of new characters being introduced, making "Impulse" a must read.

    It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

    Story

    This to me was just an OK paranormal love story, but did have the typical annoying heroine. I get real frustrated with main characters that can't read between the lines and figure out what trouble they are in. For instance, when she had beings stalking her wanting to do who knows what, and she's going to go in to heet at any time, but doesn't seem to care to find out anything at all about what will happen during that period of time, she only insisted on going back to her apartment, instead of staying where she can be protected. Then, it seems every man she has ever dated (or known) is out to rape or kill her all of a sudden (What's up with that?).
    If you like the formula love stories where the heroine can't get it together til the end, and the two main characters are in love, but mutually think the other one doesn't love them back, then this one's for you.

    Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She survived, saved by a stranger who witnessed her undergo a physical transformation. That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body. Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

    She's attacked, saved by one stranger, then saved by another stranger, and still another stranger runs to her rescue. I don't know what's so special about this girl, but the men seem to know, as everyone wants to protect and maybe love her. She's not without her enemies though, that want her for hidden reasons. That's where the story becomes interesting, the mysterious part of it and hopefully we will learn more about Zoe's special gifts in future installments. As for this one, it's a nice beginning that introduces us to the mage world, that she's been thrown in to.
