Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court - but at a steep cost.

As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms - and she might be key to stopping it.

I finished listening to this book in three days. it was that hard to put down. This is my first book by this author and I was pleasantly satisfied that I grabbed. The storyline is very good, very different and a good mix of action and calm. The characters are well developed. The main character is a work-in-progress in development, learning how to be likeable. I sincerely enjoyed this audible and have book two cued up to play next.

We're here, then we're gone, and that was true before they came. That's always been true. The Others didn't invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won't end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning: on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Delaney Hagen's power to control lightning is unique, even among witches. That uniqueness has caused her to run and hide from her kind - and the other supernatural beings in the world. Finally, after years of running, she feels safe enough to settle down. But her life's calm is completely destroyed when her best friend is murdered.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. The main character cussed too much and the story could have done without cussing at all. in fact, it would have been better. The one thing that I don't understand is why do authors like using silly sayings...Holy hot sauce batman! Those things take away from the story too. And one more piece of unsolicited advise, use contractions. Narrators falter when contractions aren't used and it sounds weird. Regardless, I really enjoyed the storyline and thought the narrator did a good job.

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine, too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is, he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns - Norse destiny deities - to punish her for defying them. So Raine comes up with a plan.... She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.

I always love Charlotte Hughes' books. See Bride Run was a cute, fluffy romance with a little angst, a little humor and of course, a little romance. The narrator, however, missed the mark. Her intonation is all wrong and her emphasis on words, misplaced.

I enjoyed the story line of White Raven in theory. However, the main character is a brat who tries to come across as tough, and who has a foul mouth which was somewhat of a turnoff for me. She was completely disrespectful, rude and stayed horny which had me doing the eyeroll throughout the story. With the exception of the paranormal aspect, everything was predictable between the main character and Zane.

After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself.
