When Agent Mercedes Ramirez finds an abused young boy on her porch, covered in blood and clutching a teddy bear, she has no idea that this is just the beginning. He tells her a chilling tale: an angel killed his parents and then brought him here so Mercedes could keep him safe. His parents weren’t just murdered. It was a slaughter - a rage kill like no one on the Crimes Against Children team had seen before. But they’re going to see it again. An avenging angel is meting out savage justice, and she’s far from through.

I love the butterfly garden not so much the roses of May but I think that had a lot to do with the change in narrators I wasn't happy when I saw it was narrated by the same woman but was pleasantly surprised at how talented she is with the different accents. I'm glad that it wasn't a duo this time narrating The book itself is well written and as amazingly terrifying as the first but in a way that makes being hurt by someone by people horribly that there is hope and light and love you just don't always get it from the people who's DNA runs through your blood. In all it's horror there is funny and true descriptions of when you truly find those people who don't bleed the same DNA but would bleed life for you because we all have the ability to survive fight and thrive in between the ok-ish moments and the truly horrible ones great Job all around tho if you don't know Spanish you will probably miss a couple things but most of it is stuff you learn on Sesame Street at least back in the 80's.

A city of antebellum architecture, picturesque parks, and cobblestone streets, Savannah moves at a graceful pace. But for Harper McClain, the timeless beauty and culture that distinguishes her home’s Southern heritage vanishes during the dark and dangerous nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Not even finding her mother brutally murdered in their home when she was 12 has made her love Savannah any less.

Rain Thomas is a mess. Seven years an addict and three difficult years clean. Racked by guilt for the baby she gave up for adoption when she was 16. Still grieving for the boy’s father who died in Iraq. Alone, discarded by her family, with only the damaged members of her narcotics anonymous meetings as friends. Them, and the voices in her head. One morning, on the way to a much-needed job interview, she borrows reading glasses to review her resume.

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

The story has great bones tons of potential but the author indulged to much on the meat and fat of the story. It felt like he had a great story but ruined it in details and gotcha moments. The story is lost the narrator word have been amazing for a less wordy drama she ends up just being obnoxious and I found myself annoyed with her drinking and drug use it was overused. A.J may have potential if he can do away with the obesity of the story.

The book had me captivated and doubting my theories and changing them up and down. So well written and the Narrator did an amazing job. Fabulous book to listen to. I can imagine how amazing it is to read as well. I love audio but miss that tiny bit of imagination taken by the narrator, not bad by any means but more sad when the choice is removed from life to physical hold a book and create the world with your own brain. To the narrator thank you for you're great way of creating vision through your narration.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a current gift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their current gifts, Akos and Cyra do not - their gifts make them vulnerable to others' control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives and reset the balance of power in this world?

Before Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich begins a summer job at a law firm in Louisiana, working to help defend men accused of murder, she thinks her position is clear. The child of two lawyers, she is staunchly anti-death penalty. But the moment convicted murderer Ricky Langley's face flashes on the screen as she reviews old tapes - the moment she hears him speak of his crimes - she is overcome with the feeling of wanting him to die. Shocked by her reaction, she digs deeper and deeper into the case.

The book is so disjointed and confusing. I hope the author finds herself a good therapist to help her put her chaos into understanding. I have not found a book so hard to follow and somewhat selfish in the content she uses to tell her story.

They are five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who leaves them to fend for themselves for weeks at a time. Yet through it all, they have each other. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. Their mother, Cookie, blows in and out of their lives "like a hurricane, blind and uncaring to everything in her path". But when Regina emancipates herself as a minor and escapes, her siblings are separated.
