Thirteen-year-old Emily Poe has been given the opportunity of a lifetime: A chance to attend the exclusive Audyn School in Manhattan. But to win the scholarship, she has to pass a test like nothing she’s ever experienced before: A nearly bare room, a set of strange clues, a locked door. And a mysterious organization - the Leopold Foundation - that’s watching her every move.

I got this as a free monthly short. I usually grab them bc they are free but this particular story caught my interest.
I ended up really liking it! It def. was a YA story but it was entertaining and about friendships.
I recommend this story! It is a quick, easy listen (read).
I would love to see a sequel. find out what happens to Emily after graduating from this private school for the 1%-ers, did it open doors for her as suggested, etc.

Now, just when the supernatural community in Colorado is enjoying a period of hard-won peace, the alpha turns up at Lex’s door to call in his marker. Two of his pack members have disappeared in the Colorado sand dunes, and he needs safe passage to hunt for them. With her friend Simon Pellar along for backup, Lex ventures into the dunes to search for the missing couple…but what they find is only the opening move in an ambitious assault against those who hold power in the Colorado Old World.

I have to say this is M. Olsen's best "universe", which I say bc both Scarlett and Lex's series are both fantastic!!!
This book was excellent and a fast read, it just sucks you right in (no pun intented!).
I am bummed about having to wait for the next book. There are so many great open story lines, the triumvirate of power, Katya and Lily, new witch clan, etc.
This is definitely worth the buy!!
As always Kate Rudd was excellent!

Sunshine. It's a nickname I haven't heard since I lived on Woodbury Lane, where the houses were pretty, but the secrets? Deadly. It was a pet name known only to the Bullets. Rough, violent, and ruthless, they laid claim to the town - and my heart. I wasn't supposed to fall for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks‚ especially not four of them. But they were the only ones who understood that sometimes hell hides in plain sight.

I can not believe after all that the main part of the story was jammed into the last 5 mins without any actual resolution!!!
I hope there is a book 2 to complete the story, and with a few less sex scenes. I like a good shag scene as much as anyone but I buy a book for the plot, the story not 1 sex scene after another.

I liked this story as I do all in the series. i gave this story 4 instead of 5 stars bc it wasnt really a BDB story. It was a story about others in the race but none of the BDB.
It is definitely worth the read, it was quick easy reading.
Enjoy! I cant wait for her next book in the series!

it took me 2 tries to get going on this book but once I did and really listened it was quite good.
my initial thought when i started it was, "what is this even about??". As the story moved on it became apparent what it was about but only in a general sense, it took most of the story to really see what the book was really about.
i thought it brave and truthful how the first half shows the husband is a fairly good light, until his business fails it showed him as a decent person, husband and father.
The actual crime rhis woman lives through had me saying "OMG NO" while listening.
It is short and worth the listen.

I was unsure when starting this book what kind of story it would be. I tend to like supernatural stories.
Well, this book fell into a sci-fi/paranormal story which I really enjoyed!
when I finished the book I wanted a sequel to find out what happened after...

Just so everyone knows, there is no book 3. Anna Jarzeb wrote that her publisher decided not to publish it. She stated she hopes to write it and publish online someday.
The book Tether was excellent I am so disappointed we do not get an ending. it would certainly be worth her publisher to reconsider. The 1st 2 books were excellent but this leaves a great story totally unfinished and hanging.

When Casey first arrived at the off-the-grid town, an isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect, with no cell phones, no internet, no mail, and no way of getting in or out without the town council's approval. She certainly didn't expect to be the homicide detective on two separate cases or to begin a romantic relationship with her boss. But the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their midst without a plan to keep him imprisoned, and to keep others safe.

I want the next book!! This book was left completely hanging, it almost seems like it was so long they split it in half and rhis book was part 1.
This book was excellent, I read this in 1 day! There were a couple of parts wgich dragged a bit bc they were so descriptive, like when Casey was hanging off the rocks when trying to reach Val's body.
I cant express enough how much I am dying to jump into the next book, I want to know where the story is going!!

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I'm Kerris Fellwater, and when I returned, I inherited my grandmother's house - and her gift. As a spirit shaman, it's my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves because around Whisper Hollow, people - and secrets - don't always stay buried.
