I’ve been outed as a Legacy, and there’s nothing I can do but deal with the aftermath. I thought I could handle it - I was wrong. The city is in chaos, and I have more enemies than allies. Some whom I once called allies have quickly become my betrayers. Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, Conner resurfaces, and he’s ready to make everyone pay. Especially me. He’s the least of my worries: A supernatural assassin has been brought in to kill all the Legacy - and he’s good at his job. One by one, we are being killed off.

Something has always been missing from my life. A hole that I could never seem to fill. When I accidentally turn a coven of witches into nightmares, I find out what that something is. Magic. And it turns out, I have a crap load of it. As a latent power awakens deep inside of me, I'm exposed to one of the most powerful and corrupt organizations in the magical world - the Mages' Guild. Barely knowing a spell from a few swear words and luck, I won't be able to evade them alone. And that's when I meet him.

The fae king wants me dead. His assassins tracked me down and nearly killed me - now, they’re the ones lying lifeless in a pool of blood. But the price I've paid is too high. They hurt someone I love, and I burn for revenge. I’m done watching from the sidelines. Following the seductive fae, Roan, I join the rebels but find myself surrounded by suspicion at every turn. But with the strange new magic in my blood, no one trusts me anymore.It's the magic of fear, of terror, of nightmares. The king’s minions have given me another name: Mistress of Dread.

Loved the story. This is not a book for a serious literature critique but it is a good distraction and an enjoyable listen. love the narrator have listened to 1-3, do think you shoyld start at beginning but thats just my preference. The story ends abruptly but I hope it is a set up foe the next in the series.

I thought this would be a simple profiling case. Just another Jack the Ripper wannabe, prowling London’s streets, searching for easy kills. I was wrong. This killer is fae, and he’s as elusive as smoke on the wind. But I’m an FBI profiler, and it’s my job to track him down. It doesn’t matter that one of the main suspects - a lethally alluring fae - is trying to seduce me...or kill me, I’m not sure which. I won’t be stopped, not even when panic roils through the streets of London or when the police start to suspect me.

As an environmental studies major, Allie knows the planet is in trouble - a series of natural disasters recently rocked the northern hemisphere, and species across the globe are going extinct. What Allie doesn't know is that her world's decline is a result of an ancient battle called the Night War - the Norse goddess Nott's crusade to control the weakest of the light realms. And Allie most definitely doesn't know that her existence is the only thing stopping Nott from dragging the earth into total darkness.

kept listening but throughout it felt like it was a poorly written tween book. The narration was too teen sounding, high pitch. i slowed it down to 75% to get through it. Rainbow bridges, sleep curses and some Nordic mythology. Not the worst not the best.

When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

For a brief period after the world changed forever, the self-reliant community of Trout Run Valley managed to avoid conflict. They practiced subsistence, and found safety and security within their numbers. As the post-apocalyptic timeline moved forward, it began to spiral downward. Takers had made their presence known, and their malevolent intentions clear, transforming the once benign community into a violent battleground.

I liked this book and the series because it is more realistic than the average zombie apocalypse. Human nature can be scarier than make believe and more beautiful than sometimes expected. I enjoy learning while being entertained. good character development, good pace, realistic scenarios.
