Publisher's Summary

They're smart, sexy, and supernatural: they're the men and women of the Otherworld - a realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves who live unseen among us. Only now a reckless killer has torn down the wall, trapping one very human woman in the supernatural cross fire.

Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane - the world's most famous celebutante wannabe - can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. But it's not the police Hope is worried about, and the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about.

    "New Blood - Excellent Plot"

    We meet Hope Adams in this book. Now Hope is a brand new character in the series and plays the main character. She has a pension for Chaos. Through Hope we learn a lot more about Karl Marsden who appeared in earlier books in not so flattering ways. In this work, he make the full transition from bad guy to good guy.

    This series is excellent as the plots vary and keep interest. I like the universe of characters. Armstrong sticks to her theme, premise and does an excellent job of putting a plot around them. I leave it to you to figure out what they are. Jen Taylor's narration is first rate.

    It is a excellent next read.

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    Story
    "The narrator needs to be fired."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    she detracted by being the narrator she was terrible. she mutilated the voices and she mispronounced names. it would have been better if she had not attempted voices at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVE Kelly Armstrong. I love her writing and I love the series. I was very upset when I realized the narrator was so terrible! she has no sense for the characters, and she cannot even come close to a passable male voice. Karl sounds like someone is constantly choking him, and her female voices are almost as bad. They are difficult to tell apart and they sound like 16 year old brainless twits. Also how the hell do you repeatedly mispronounce Jamie as Haime?!? I could understand if the character was male or hispanic, but the character is FEMALE and a REDHEAD! I was very sad to see such a great stories ruined by a incompetent narrator.

    "Great story, not so great narration"

    I was totally disappointed while listening to this story, because the narrator did not do her homework at all. There were mispronunciations, and characters had different accents from previous stories. The narrator also sounded too ... young and whiny.

    "Another Great Book...But the Narrator"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't understand how the narrator got


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the story, however I was very use to everyone in the story having some type of power and it was just a little disappointing that Robyn is just human.

    "Love the book, dislike the narrator"

    The narrator was horrible. She gave Hope Adams a New Jersey accent and her male characters sound absurd.

    "Overall it was great"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Living with the Dead to be better than the print version?

    I think both are very good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story was in third person. Usually women of the otherworld are first person experience


    What three words best describe Jen Taylor’s voice?

    The narrator's voice is very versatile.


    Any additional comments?

    With the exception of messing up one of the character's names, the narrator was very good. I don't blame her. I blame the director. This was book nine, No Humans Involved had already been printed.
