    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine. She's a Dark Caster, a Siren. She can make you do things. Anything. You can't trust her, or yourself when she's around. And she'll be the first to tell you to stay away - especially if you're going to do something as stupid as fall in love with her. Lucky for Ridley, her wannabe rocker boyfriend, Wesley "Link" Lincoln, never listens to anyone.

    James says: "As excellent as the beautiful creatures series"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dangerous Creatures to be better than the print version?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dangerous Creatures?

    The Fire, and Ridleys job....one was scary the other funny...Ridley is a mess!!


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    I Love her narrations....I have listened to her quite a bit in other series...she is really good!!! I also Like Kevin Collins too!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I hate this question...but this would make a cute movie, if they didn't ruin it like they did beautiful creatures!


    Any additional comments?

    I like this book and hope they continue the series....Ridley is a very complex and interesting character and Link makes me laugh....this whole book kept e interested from beginning to end....and the cliffhanger it ended on has me dying for more...2 thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!

    From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.

    The way Winter sacrifices herself for her friends at the end...she was so brave and a very noble girl....I am very impressed with Winter...and cant wait for book 2...to see where this story goes...I gave it a 4 star...but really more like 4.5 after you get about 3 chapters in...


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    She is an excellent little narrator...I would listen to her anytime!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I cant think of a tag line...but this would be an EXCELLENT movie!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Mark Tufo's writing as a whole...he adds a bit of humor to even the most dire consequences and situations..this is going to be a great series...and hope there is a 2nd one soon....like I said I gave this story 4 stars...but it is really more like 4.5...It is a great story of bravery, courage and friendship...and you will love it!!!

    Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.

    Mated to werewolf Charles Cornick, the son - and enforcer - of the leader of the North American werewolves, Anna Latham now knows how dangerous being a werewolf is, especially when a werewolf opposes Charles and his father is struck down. Charles's reputation makes him the prime suspect, and the penalty for the crime is execution. Now Anna and Charles must combine their talents to hunt down the real killer - or Charles will take the fall.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.
