Half devil and miles from anything resembling heroic, perpetual underdog Frank "Triggaltheron" Trigg is the last man standing against Armageddon. As the favorite nephew of the devil, Frank has led a troubled life, but he'd always had his uncle's influence to fall back on. Now, with God and Lucifer coming to terms and leaving existence to fend for itself, his once exalted status of Antichrist-to-be does little to endear him to the hordes of angels and demons running amok in the godless world.

I have been waiting a while for this book to come out as an audiobook. Sadly it has . I hoped for so much more. The premise is good, there is so much that could have been done with the storyline and characters. I just could not get into it. That's not to say there are no redeeming qualities to it. It was a decent listen . If there had been more complexity to the story with a bit more world building, the story could have been greatly enhanced. As well as the characters .

Modern day wizard Felix Slade knows better than to meddle in the lives of witches. But when a chance encounter with a beautiful witch, Gabriella, sparks a vision of her demise at the hand of a werewolf, he knows he must act. To make matters worse, his vision reveals feelings he has for this woman he's only seen from afar, and in that moment his life is changed forever. Trouble has been brewing in sleepy Leotown, but explodes when Felix witnesses the gruesome murder of Gabriella's coven leader and ends up number one on a short list of suspects.

How many times can one poor wizard get his butt kicked? Many many times. This is a great new series. The first book has a wonderfully complex plot with many characters . A great storyline to follow an excellent narration. I can't wait till the next one.

I can't get enough of Jane Yellowrock. Her story is never dull. She has found her way into the middle of vampire politics. And with that comes great trouble. In this installment, Jane and her new drive must once again save the city. The European vampires are on the warpath. And only Jane Yellowrock can stop them. Excellent storyline with a wonderful plot twist here and there , and wonderful narration as always.

I will only say that it was an enjoyable read , that also made me laugh . Well worth the time spent listening.

From an old-fashioned ghost story, to a mind-bending tale of mental illness, and a bite-sized vampire romance, this collection of short stories by Wondra Vanian will explore more than one side of the crazy, terrifying thing called life and teach us to remember that we're A Long Time Dead.

Short story collection with a few good ones and a few not so good ones. Overall I would give the entirety a 3 1/2 . A few of the stories just didn't have enough substance.

Disgraced during the Demon War, Dwarf investigator Snazdaggin Kundarik (Spade to his friends) wants nothing more than a desk to sleep on, a bottle of grog to drink, and the occasional easy case for quick pay. Then a mysterious female Elf from the posh side of town shows up and offers him exoneration for his past sins and lots of gold. All he has to do is follow her brother and report his activities. Simple, right? He should have known better. The simple job soon spirals out of control.

Girl power rocks. This is a YA fantasy that touches on themes of women being undervalued. Throughout the story our heroine proves over and over that women can be strong. Great concept , excellent narration and totally enjoyable.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
