Publisher's Summary

It's the most anticipated reality television event of the season: three spiritualists gathered together in one house to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. For celebrity medium Jaime Vegas, it is to be her swan song: one last publicity blast for a celebrity on the wrong side of 40. But unlike her colleagues, who are more show than substance, Jaime is the real thing.

Reluctant to upstage her fellow spiritualists, Jaime tries to suppress her talents, as she has done her entire life. But there is something lurking in the maze of gardens behind the house: a spirit without a voice. And it won't let go until somehow Jaime hears its terrible story. For the first time in her life, Jaime Vegas understands what humans mean when they say they are haunted. Distraught, Jaime looks to fellow supernatural Jeremy Danvers for help.

As the touches and whispers from the garden grow more frantic, Jaime and Jeremy embark on an investigation into a Los Angeles underworld of black magic and ritual sacrifice. When events culminate in a psychic showdown, Jaime must use the darkest power she has to defeat a shocking enemy: one whose malicious force comes from the last realm she expected.

In a world whose surface resembles our own, Kelley Armstrong delivers a stunning alternate reality, one where beings of the imagination live, love, and fight a never-ending battle between good and evil.

    "An Absorbing Read"

    I have to admit I didn't think I would like this book. Usually, books about people with supernatural powers are either incredibly cliched or so tongue-in-cheek or worst of all, so Anne Ricesque, that they invariably disappoint. NOT SO with this gem. The author has created a stand alone novel with a compplete alternate world. Also, this novel hints at the existance of others, but I have never read anything by her before and I couldn't stop listening. A cross between a mystery and mild horror/fantasy, the only problem I had was with the ending. A bit hasty- I still had questions - for my taste. However, as I believe there will be more novels with this main character, I'll have to wait and see!

    "Excellent"

    This is Number 7 in the women of the otherworld. Bitten is also available in audiobook format, (just not through this service). This book is about Jaime, a necromancer and her love for the werewolf leader Jeremy.

    I wish Audible would get the rest of the books. Awesome. 5 stars.

    "Good read, so-so reader"

    I like the paranormal genre and have enjoyed books by Kelley Armstrong. This one focuses more closely on Jaime Vegas, a necromancer. The story didn't disappoint, but the reader did. The main character's voice and the female voices were well done. The male voices left much to be desired, almost sounding to me like they'd inhaled helium before speaking. In previous books, Jeremy, her love interest, was a strong and very masculine character. In this audiobook, it was difficult for me to get past the sound of his voice and hear him the way he comes across in the written word. I've not listened to other books by this reader, but I'd certainly think twice before purchasing another audiobook read by her.

    "From Bit Part to Center Stage"

    Kelley Armstrong has scored again in this story, bringing to the fore front a minor character from her previous books, Jamie Vegas. The story line is made believable and pulls the listener along as the story unfolds.

    The characters are fleshed out nicely by sharing the trials of everyday life in the world of Spiritual Show Business.

    I've enjoyed each of Kelley Armstrong's books, and wish Audible would gather up all the titles.

    "Necromancer, Werewolf and Magic - Good Read"

    Jamie Vegas is the main character in Armstrong's book 7. She has played prominent supporting roles in a couple of the previous books and it was good to finally see a story revolve around her. In this tale, she is in Hollywood to tape a reality TV show and she discovers evil and of course Jeremy (Alpha Werewolf) shows up to help de-tangle things as both sidekick and love interest. This is a major thriller and a littler romance.

    Merlington continues to improve as the narrator of the series. I think she has finally hit her stride.

    This series is interesting as the various factions of supernaturals are revealed and interact. This general genre is in vogue and this series is a good read in that vain. I give it a thumbs up -- keep going on to the next book.

    "The best short story collection I have read."

    K.A. thank you. This collection of short stories was great. I really don't like most short stories collection. This was different. I felt so connected to each story and each had worth to the main series the Otherworld. I see your name and buy the book knowing it will not disappoint.

    "Good book, good narrator, unwise combination"

    Kelley Armstrong is one of the few whose books I buy as both print and audio, and I loved this book in print. I simply could not get behind the combination of Jamie Vegas -- the most sexual female in Ms. Armstrong's lineup -- and Laural Merlington, the most comforting and grandmotherly voice in the audible paranormal lineup. Jamie and Jeremy's encounters are very edgy and explicit, and listening to them in Ms. Merlington's voice was unpleasant, almost embarrassing.

    "Loved this Book"

    This series is great! I enjoy the world that Armstrong has created. The narrator was decent, though I would have preferred a different voice. It didn't fit well with the writing style. Anyway, love the author and the series. I recommend Industrial Magic. It's my favorite of the series, but they are all enjoyable.

    "Not for Everybody"

    The book was well enough written with some interesting concepts. However, it just was not for me, or maybe not for my generation. The “supernatural” throughout the work was just too, well, sugar coated. Not sure if that best describes it, but despite this being a new generation of “fashions, coffee shops, and sensitive men,” those items just do not fit well with childhood memories of lycanthrope wolves pushing through their human skins to fulfill their hunger for ripping out human throats on a full moon.

    Instead, this book gave us the sensitive romantic alpha male (sensitive romantic alpha male? Isn’t that an oxymoron?) werewolf who with the main protagonist spent a lot of time sipping coffee in coffee shops. It seemed like an extensive trivialization of necromancy, death, good, evil, angels, demons, religions, ghosts, vampires, magic, cults, werewolves, and lets not forget your pesky everyday "non-supernatural" human used to provide a very popular subject matter backdrop for some modern day characters.

    Finally, the narrator only managed to heighten the story’s weaknesses by making the action, just a little less exciting and the main characters, just a little more unlikable.
