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...
Definitely worth the read!!

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.

But after a sudden revelation turns Scarlett's world upside down, she panics and leaves town without warning, leaving Shadow with her partner, Jesse. In the chaos that follows, the bargest is stolen - and Jesse nearly dies from a brutal psychic assault. It seems that an old enemy has returned for revenge...and the attack on Shadow was only the beginning.

i started this series, which I totally lovED, bc it WAS a vampire/were story with a new twist. The last couple of books have been less vamp were than previously but still pretty good. This book, this is a computer space story that mentions vamp weres a couple of times. Michael Anderle, what are you doing?? i have bought and read every one in series and had planned to keep going but i can barely keep my mind intetested, i keep having my thoughts wandering on me, which only happens when a book does not keep your interest. I want my vampire Were story back, i even love the twist you added that they are another race from another galaxy I got into that story and wanted more but i dont want to hear about ship building and space station building and computer BUILDING etc. i havent finished the book im only half way thru and i can barely keep going. i will finish the story bc i keep hoping there will be a big shift somewhere bringing it back to what these stories were.
Does anyone else understand or agree with what I am saying??
Emily did another fabulous narration!

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Spoilers!!
I really enjoyed this book as I do with all the BDB Books but the ending was too abrupt. The story was going along at a good pace and then BAM she just wraps everything up and ends it.
The story seemed like it should have been another hour or so going more into Run and Saxton now that they are truly together and found out about the house, as well as more about the property developer and his people. I want to know if Novo and Peyton get mated/bounded and what happened to Rowena, is she ok, what was the deal with the money for the mating? too many loose ends left. Sophie didnt say anything to Novo about the wedding, Peyton, Oscar etc!! loose ends!!
oh and wtf was that 1 line re Wrath and Beth expecting a 2nd child! The band of bastards, leila, where were they??
