This is a collection of all three books in the Fateful Vampire Trilogy: Fateful, Fractured, and Forever. See why thousands of listeners are devouring this new series with a unique take on vampire romance.
This is certainly the type of stories I love but as much as I tried, I just couldn't enjoy it. The overall story was captivating enough for me to keep listening to see how it would all end but it was almost painful. By what would be the second book I found one of the main characters, Danielle, truly annoying. Although the author warns the reader of her "Girliness" Danielle was more whinny then girly. I was also able to zone out and miss a good amount of the story and although I wanted to be updated on what was happening, it was not enough for me to rewind. I just didn't find that "It" factor to this series that others did. At least the narrator was pretty good.
When first published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, Live from New York was immediately proclaimed the best book ever produced on the landmark and legendary late-night show. In their own words, unfiltered and uncensored, a dazzling galaxy of trail-blazing talents recalled three turbulent decades of on-camera antics and off-camera escapades.
The first few chapters were pretty entertaining but after a while some of the stories dragged on. Then towards the end it seems as if stories were repeated. I often thought that I had gone back to a previous chapter knowing I had already hear a tale before only to see that in fact they had repeated a story. So if you're a true SNL you'd probably enjoy it but it seemed to drag on in my opinion.

I'm not a one-night stand kind of woman. I'm especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh. However, that's exactly where I find myself. What's a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can.
This book brought me to tears a number of times. The supporting stories around the main love story are incredibly touching and heart warming. The talented voices of Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber really makes the characters and their struggles come alive.
I thought the threat from Seattle was finished. That we showed up in time and took care of business. I hate being wrong. It really ruins my day. When Roger, the alpha of the North American pack, shows up at my door with the news that a demon has made it to the Underworld with knowledge of me, some hard decisions have to be made. Do I stay above ground, with all my magical friends, and wait for the battle to come to me? Or do I seek the demon out, and pluck the threat out by the root? I don't want my friends to die on my behalf.
Even after being disappointed with book 2, I still had to give book 3 a try to find out the end. Sadly I was even more disappointed with this one. I was looking forward to a big wrap up. What I found was a story that dragged on with no real purpose. Chapter after chapter of weird circus towns and desserts with weird events taking place but nothing truly exciting. So after enduring slow uneventful story lines it ends with no real climax. Just "My boring trek through hell is complete and now I'll just lay low with my hot vampire lover who truly is in love with me even though vampires shouldn't be capable of love. But I'm not even going to look into that because I'm laying low." It ends like the author just lost interest and said "I'm bored so end it here". Just was expecting better.

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn't the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don't have many options. Dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old-as-sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day. Knowing I'm poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I'll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case. Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire.
Jeanine Frost has Cat Crawfield, Darynda Jones has Charley Davidson and now
K.F. Breene has Regan Somerset. Breene does a good job of bringing us this supernatural world with some great and funny characters. Nicole Poole does an Amazing job of bringing everything to life. Yet the overall falls a bit short but looking forward to the next book.
The killings that once plagued New Orleans are cropping up again in Seattle. The local office is stumped. I'm called out to lend a fresh set of eyes and my unique magical touch. It's only when I get there that I realize the Seattle office isn't stumped at all. They're being silenced by the Mages' Guild, a corrupt magical institution that doesn't want word to get out of what is plaguing the city. Worse, news of my magic might've slipped down to the underworld, hitting the ears of some extremely powerful demons.
I was so looking forward for book 2 and it's not as entertaining as the first book. Despite its funny parts, it can of drags on.
Salem, Massachusetts, is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those trials, and almost immediately she becomes the enemy of a group of girls that call themselves the Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were?
I was expecting a better overall story considering the concept. It's not one of the best stories but I'm planning on giving the next book a try.
Samantha Mather knew her family's connection to the infamous Salem Witch Trials might pose obstacles to an active social life. But having survived one curse, she never thought she'd find herself at the center of a new one. This time, Sam is having recurring dreams about the Titanic...where she's been walking the deck with first-class passengers, like her aunt and uncle. Meanwhile, in Sam's waking life, strange missives from the Titanic have been finding their way to her, along with haunting visions of people who went down with the ship.
Like the first story the concept is intriguing but I struggled to finish it. Really not worth using a credit.
My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I'm the villain of this story. I've decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you'll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn't there. Don't mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
Not sure what this says about me but I FREAKEN LOVE THIS BOOK. The story is engaging from start to finish. Celia Arron does a wonderful job of humanizing the "Bad Guy". You'll be cheering for him from the start. On top of the great story all three narrators do an AMAZING job of bring the characters to live.
When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough. As soon as I touch down, I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces, and all the black cabs. But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.
I truly believe Shane East has one of the sexiest voices out there. He could read any story and make it sound amazing. He's why I rushed to get this book and while Shane didn't disappoint the story was lacking a bit of something. While the main characters have you rooting for them there really isn't much to the story. Pretty straight forward guy and girl fall in love in spite of the fact that neither one of them want to fall in love ever again. Not much else to the story.
