Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. Sometimes it's just best to get the hell out of Dodge. After turning an ancient vampire to dust and stirring the Coven into a mob of pitchfork-and-torch-bearing vampires, Chris Gordon thinks it might be time for a road trip. So, leaving Tanya to calm the troubled masses, he heads south to help a North Carolina pack with some demon troubles.

This book is good. one of my favorites in the series so far. I do wish the narrator didn't sound like a surfer dude all the time, but it doesn't ruin it for me.

Nate Temple's all-consuming quest to avenge his parents is temporarily put on hold when shape-shifting dragons invade St. Louis. And perhaps cow-tipping the Minotaur for answers might not have been Nate's smartest opening move, because now every flavor of supernatural thug from our childhood nightmares is gunning for him. Nate learns that the only way to save his city from these creatures is to murder his best friend.

This book was written by a 12 year old boy apparently, because all he talked about were boobs and his boners. The story was boring, and he was all over the place, never really taking the time to explain things. I also did not feel this book was well written, and the narrator was one of the worst I have ever listened to. His pronunciation of some words was down right atrocious. Skip this series.

Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it. When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!

Diviner Alex Verus finally made one too many enemies on the Council of Mages, and now one of them is angry enough to have him executed. Fighting for his life is nothing new, but this kill order also calls for the death of Alex's dependents - and there's no way that he'll let Luna, Anne, and Vari take the heat. With only a week before he's history, Alex will have to figure out how to disassociate himself from his friends, scrounge up allies on the council, and hopefully keep his head attached to his body.

I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't as action pavked as the last one, but it was good. I do not recommend reading this book if you have not read the entire series, as this book is setup for the next book in the series. It was a lot of character development, but it was good.

this was the best book in the entire series. I almost listened to it in one entire sitting. i do have to say that like a lot of the other books the ending was very quick. But this book evoked so much emotion, and Ms. Briggs really surprised me how she handle the main love triangle in this book. the narrator is amazing and does such a good job for the male and female characters. I can't want for the next book in the series!!!

Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History.

Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

Loch is seeking revenge. It would help if she wasn’t in jail. The plan: To steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but is now in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so, Loch - former soldier, former prisoner, and current fugitive - must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shape shifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical war hammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills.

Would you try another book from Patrick Weekes and/or Justine Eyre?

Absolutely not

What could Patrick Weekes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't even know. I listened for about an hour and I couldn't even go any further. This book was confusing from the get go, there is no background, you are just thrown into the story, and nothing was explained in the time that I listened, the reader has no idea what is going on, no motivation is given for anything.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Justine Eyre?

THe narrator made it difficult to understand what they were saying with the fake accents she was using

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money...I actually wish I could get my money back for this book, but I got it on sale.
