One last adventure. That's all Riley wants before heading off to college and parting ways with her two best friends. Spending their last summer together on a Texas farm in the middle of nowhere isn't quite as exciting as they'd planned.... That is, until they stumble upon secrets no human should know. Men who appear and disappear. A giant wing hidden in the creek. Screams in the dead of night. Every oddity seems connected to their strange - and alarmingly attractive - new neighbors, led by the stormy-eyed Navan.
Struggle to finish it for real. Not as realistic as her other books. I hope it would get better then it was over. Narrated very well.

A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.
Wow! I heard of Dresend but he is better than I thought. Can't wait for book 2.
Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.
Very cute story. I really enjoyed the light history the write weaved into this story.
Alex Cross' first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks like a shadowy figure known as the Wolf, a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime, is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.
I love this story! I enjoyed that I was not able to predict the story. Alex Cross has a scary understanding of the criminal is out of this world. This is a fast moving book. Never a dull moment.
Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.
I always love Alex Cross! This story was exciting, nerve rattling, and tearful. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Four college students head to the Colorado mountains for two weeks of rest, relaxation and winter fun on the bunny slopes. What they get instead is the end of the world as they know it as the city of Denver is destroyed by a nuclear explosion shortly after their arrival. With no electricity, no cell phones or communication, they are isolated on the mountain top and have no way of knowing what is happening elsewhere in the country. Was it a nuclear accident or a deliberate attack.
I truly enjoyed listening to this story. The plot was was well thought out.
Why is The Book of Enoch so important to anyone interested in Biblical history? The answer is simple: It is directly quoted in the New Testament by Jude (vv.14-15). Themes of the book referenced in 2 Peter 2:1. Jesus also used content from The Book of Enoch in many of his sermons in Matthew and Luke. In this text, you will hear the word of God through this amazing document. We will take this amazing journey together and learn why this text is not an official book of the Bible.
very interested in the beginning toward the end things became strange. I had to fight to stick with it loved the ending.
