In this series vampires are mainly just predators and only concerned with eating or drinking as the case may be, so you have the hunters who hunt vampires and demons. Morgan is the main character in this book and she's a hunter, naturally. The book was fast paced with twists and turns and a little romance thrown in. The cast of characters is colorful and interesting and easy to fall in love with. There is of course a lot of gory fighting which you would expect when the main character is a vampire hunter. You also learn a little about Atlantis through Morgan's dreams and all about sunwalkers. A great start to a series with an ending that makes you want to know what happens next.
Yes. I like her Half Moon Hollow books but the Naked Werewolf ones aren't quite as good.
I thought the narrator did a good job - even the male voices weren't half bad.
There were some good moments but I would find my mind drifting so it wasn't holding my attention. Her Half Moon Hollow books were a lot more entertaining.
It's nice to listen to a book where the lead character starts showing growth right away. Kitty was attacked by a werewolf and turned and is still finding her way in the new world she was thrust into. Kitty starts out as a submissive werewolf who wants to keep some of her humanity so works hard at keeping her job as a DJ even though she gets pressure from all sides to quit.
Unlike a lot of books in this genre the characters are the main focus and there are some interesting ones.
The narrator does a great job with the voices. When Kitty is on air it almost sounds like you're listening to a radio show.
Abby, her sister Kat and Dave, her handman, go into business together to buy houses, fix them up and then sell them at a profit. They buy their first house and wouldn't you know, it's haunted. Dave's first encounter with the ghost(s) was so terrifying he refuses to go back in the house. They need to solve the murder that was committed in the home years before before they can call in the ghost buster to get rid of the ghost(s).
There's also some great side storylines in between the solving of the mystery.
As the series goes on you get to see more of Abby's psychic ability and it makes the solving of the mystery more interesting. You also got to see a lot more of Dutch. He was on assignment and got shot in the rear so he's sort of recuperating during this episode. Of course, that little mishap has also put off the consummation of his and Abby's relationship so you also have a nice slow romance going. Their frustration adds a little spice to the story.
The narrator did okay but she doesn't seem to be getting better. There were several times I couldn't tell who was talking and one person was a female and the other one was a male.
The main story line starts out with Abby helping a fellow psychic out at a wedding and discovering that it's a mob wedding. As soon as they realize this they, of course, take off with Kendall, the other psychic, saying he'll return the check. Well, Kendall doesn't get around to returning the check right away so the mob starts coming after Abby. There's some side storylines (i.e., Dutch and his new female boss) that add to the fun. There's ups and downs, twists and turns that should keep you entertained to the end.
The narrator was easy to listen to and did a pretty good job with the voices, although the male voices could use some work.
Ann Charles - Not in the Deadwood series.
Caroline Shaffer - Probably, depending on which book it was.
I liked all the supporting characters but if you don't like the main character it kind of ruins the whole book. Violet was just too immature and all the sarcastic remarks she makes in her mind gets old fast. I'm sure they were supposed to be cute or funny, but to me they just fell flat.
It did end on a cliffhanger and there are still some unanswered questions, some even from the first book - the author seems to like to drag things out so you'll buy the next book - but I don't care enough to find out.
I have the next one in this series so I'm just hoping Violet doesn't act so high school-ish in that one and a little less drama.I think the narrator did a great job so I wouldn't mind listening to her again.
Violet is supposed to be a single mother of twins, but yet she acts and thinks like she's still in high school. She lets her co-worker constantly harass her without complaining to the boss. She lets her kids walk all over her. As the book went on her thoughts just became more irritating than funny as they were, I'm sure, meant to be.I did like Doc though and just wish he would have had a better leading lady. Harvey was also a favorite character.
An above average highlander romance book. There's romance, intrigue and fighting.
Unfortunately the narrator almost ruined the book. Her male voices are horrible and she overacts the love scenes.
Someone has been stealing expensive thoroughbred stallions. English agent Gene Hawkins volunteers to search for his boss's friend's missing horse. It takes him from England to America where the stallions have gone missing. The main character suffers from depression and is a running theme throughout. Looking for the horses takes Gene all over and gets him in several tight spots and you wonder how he's going to get out of them.
I might have given this five stars but there was one scene that was just too sad for me.
The narrator did a great job.
Katie moves to Savannah to work in her aunt and uncle's new bakery and soon discovers some surprising things about her family and herself - she comes from a family of witches and is one herself. Even before the bakery is open there's a murder. What follows is a funny light mystery with plenty of laughs and just a fun book to listen to.
The only problem I had with the narrator is she also narrates the Sookie Stackhouse books so at times I thought I was back listening to that series since both characters sound the same.
Riley Jenson works for an agency that "polices" the nonhuman inhabitants, i.e, weres, vampires, etc. She is half were/half vampire. Her twin brother is a guardian for the agency but she doesn't want to become one. She's satisfied with her "civilian" work at the agency, but her boss is trying to convince her to be one by getting her involved in an investigation. Yes, there is a lot of sex due to the nature of weres but the scenes don't go on as long as some books to where you start to fast forward so you can get on to the story and she does keep saying multiple partners is inherent to the were race, but there is plenty of action. Someone is developing nasty clones and guardians are disappearing and they are trying to discover who's responsible.
The characters are pretty well developed. There's a hunky lead vampire. And, yes, only about half of the investigation is solved so you'll need to get the next book in the series to continue the investigation, but to me that's sort of what a series is about, the continuation of character development and storylines. This is not a standalone book, unless you didn't like it and don't care to continue with the series.
The narrator did a pretty good job with the Australian accents.
