    Story

    I tried to get interested in this book, but just couldn't make it work. The characters didn't appeal to me, and MaryAnn was the absolute straw that broke the camel's back. I think she was supposed to be cute in her absence of mind, but it just irritated the heck out of me every time she opened her mouth.
    The main character got off on the wrong foot at the very beginning of the book, by taking the word of a malicious troublemaker, (which she knew her to be a conniving con) then not even listening to the love of her life's side of the story, just immediately kicks him out of the house. I realized it was going to be one of those books, where you stay half mad at how stupid the characters are acting, and just wasn't in the mood to deal with frustration. At any rate, I decided to go to something else.

    In Sandman Slim Stark came back from hell for revenge. Once again all is not right in L.A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God is on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell. Stark’s got to head back down to his old stomping grounds in Hell to rescue his long lost love, stop an insane serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone. Even for Sandman Slim, that’s a tall order. And it’s only the beginning.

    Story

    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.

    James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, crawled out of Hell, took bloody revenge for his girlfriend’s murder, and saved the world along the way. After that, what do you do for an encore? You take a lousy job tracking down monsters for money. It’s a depressing gig, but it pays for your beer and cigarettes. But in L.A., things can always get worse. Like when Lucifer comes to town to supervise his movie biography and drafts Stark as his bodyguard.

    This second installment continues with Sandman Slim contracted to kill a vampire, leading him in to another mysterious quest. He ends up with a talisman unknowing it's purpose, but finds it could have major consequences for the city. Lucifer comes to Hollywood to make a movie, hiring Sandman as his bodyguard, leaving Sandman suspicious of his motives. The narrator does an excellent job portraying Lucifer, as well as the rest of the cast. Doc and Candy are on the run, another mystery for Slim to figure out, along with zombies showing up with a chomping agenda. Nonstop story, never boring.

    Let Me In is the horrific tale of Oskar and Eli. It begins with the grizzly discovery of the body of a teenage boy, emptied of blood. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last - revenge for all the bad things the bullies at school do to him. While Oskar is fascinated by the murder, it is not the most important thing in his life. A new girl has moved in next door. They become friends. Then something more. But there is something wrong with her, something odd.

    Story

    This is a somewhat bittersweet vampire story. It introduces you to a lot of characters that all seem to be in separate circumstances then get woven into this emotionally entangled little horror story with a young bully victim and his equally young vampire friend in the middle of it. One by one they become victims in one way or another, until you don't know what your feelings toward this young vampire should be, as Eli is also a victim. My only complaint is that the story was too drawn out for my tastes and I found myself wanting it to end. When the end did draw near however, the suspense was relentless as Oscar's fate drew closer.

    A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past.

    What a great story. I've read or listened to all this series in order, and have yet to be disappointed. The story opens up with a shocker for Pendergast, creating the mystery of the story. Solving this murder mystery leads him on a deadly trail, that could cost his life. Constance Green is the undisputed heroine, acquiring the help of Margo Green both putting their lives on the line for the beloved Pendergast. The novel peels away another layer of the Pendergast mystique, as we learn more about the darker side of his family tree. Like all the rest of the books, it draws you in with clue after clue unfolding through the melodious voice of Rene Auberjonois perfectly capturing the emotions and voices of the characters.

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

Harper puts the romantic comedy to paper, and Ronconi brings the characters to life as only she can do. I love these books for a quick listen that keeps you chuckling. The story is predictable, but who cares when it lifts the spirits and puts a smile on the face.

The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story

    Don't let the length of this story dissuade you, you won't want it to end. It starts out with a world where the demons come out at night to kill any human they can find. The humans live in warded villages, where only messengers travel from one place to another delivering goods and news from afar. It tells a story of three separate people coming together in a fight against these said creatures. Each has a hard road in life to travel that molds them into the people they become, each possessing a special talent to use against the demons in the battle to bring the world back to the humans. This is one of the best fantasy novels I've heard in a long time, the characters get a grip on you and don't let go and it doesn't end here.

    For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates…. Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task.

    Story

    I was in the mood for a good love story, but with that, some times you get a story that frustrates you because the main characters don't communicate the one thing that is keeping them apart. This story certainly fit that bill. Ronan has loved Arienh for 10 years without her knowing it, and she has waited for his return for 10 years. When he does come back, she doesn't recognize him and even if she did, she won't get her HEA, because of a secret she is guarding and the fact he is a Viking. (He keeps insisting he's not a Viking, but a Northman, and there is a difference) It gets frustrating at times, but I listened on and did enjoy the book, knowing that this was one of those typical love stories and all would end well.

    Alex Verus is part of a world hidden in plain sight, running a magic shop in London. And while Alex's own powers aren't as showy as some mages, he does have the advantage of foreseeing the possible future-allowing him to pull off operations that have a million-to-one-chance of success. But when Alex is approached by multiple factions to crack open a relic from a long-ago mage war, he knows that whatever's inside must be beyond powerful.

    Story

    I almost gave up on this book. Alex, goes to great lengths explaining the world of magic, every different kind of mage there is and what powers they possess. It bordered on boredom for the first part of the book, but managed to get better once all the background was gathered. The story then developed into a quest of life and death to retrieve a powerful relic that only Alex could open it's secrets. Alex has a nice group of friends to help and an equal amount of enemies out to stop him. The first of a series, but I think I'll stick with Dresden.

    Story

    The author and the narrator do an excellent job of bringing these unique and intriguing characters to life. The story is scary and revolting as it brings to light the torture of children and adults alike in Thailand. The children can break your heart, as their stories are told, but most importantly you can understand the victims becoming the murderers, in an effort to deal with the horrors that they have had to suffer. Poke is an ordinary guy that finds himself loving two victims of this culture, trying to understand their way of coping with the past, while protecting them from the evil that has shown it's face at their door.
    The book gets pretty gritty toward the end, with the suspense keeping you on the edge of your seat. Well worth the listen.
