I'm Krystin Blackwood, and I've only ever been good at one thing: killing demons of Darkness. But at 24, I'm about to face my toughest challenge yet: shifting from working alone to joining a team of three other Hunters. Newbie Hunters. They don't know their magik, they barely know their place in the world, and when they find out the secrets I've been carrying, they'll definitely decide it's safer if they don't know me. But unfortunately for them - and me - Darkness has other plans.

I loved Krystin and Ben's story. This is a fast paced story on the hunt for a little kid and I loved it. There's action and what the heck is going on and just all around awesomeness. This is an awesome new to me world and I'm loving all of it so far. Shannon did a great job narrating and she had a wonderful voice, but there was the sound of paper being turned or gum in her mouth tat drove me crazy. I loved her voice but some noise kept taking me away from the story and made it impossible to where I couldn't completely get lost in the story like I love to do.

Embracing Darkness - Zizi Cole - 5 Stars - This may be a quick story but it still manages to blend sweet and sexy very well. You may not get to know the characters well but it seems like a great match.

Unconditional Lust - Breanna Hayse - 5 Stars - This story is different but still enjoyable. There's a lot of action packed into a short story.

Luck of the Irish - K. L. Roth - 3 Stars - Starting out this story is good, but once the supernatural shows up it gets really confusing and hard to understand whats going on. Plus the beginning feels a bit rushed.

Song of the Siren - Amanda Leigh - 5 Stars - This story has a dark beauty to it. It's a long awaited reunion that has a hauntingly dark beauty in its coming.

Silverwolf Alpha - Jessi McPherson - 3 Stars - I'm not sure about this story aside from it just didn't hit the spot for me. It was a good story don't get me wrong, but it just fell flat and seemed like it was missing something.


Jenna did a great job narrating these five stories and seemed like an entirely new person for each of them.

I really enjoyed this story and its unconventionalness. Poppy and William are both strong and powerful personalities but they compliment each other not battle like you'd think. I really enjoyed that books were a big part of this because I enjoy being reminded of other book lovers. While the start of this romance was unconventional I really enjoyed it. Lacie and Marcio did a great job narrating this story and making it all the sweeter.

I love Eddie and his easy going nature. He seems like such a fun guy. I also love how sweet and thoughtful he can be. Eddie getting a chance with Margot after he'd watched her since they were little is so adorable. I really enjoyed these two getting their happily ever after. Veronica did a great narration on the female side and I loved Marcio when he did his Eddie because it just seemed so relaxing and fun to listen to.

He’ll agree to his brother’s outrageous demand that he marry, but it won’t be to some wallflower as his conservative family would prefer. If he’s going through with this farce, there’s only one woman he’ll take as his wife - his sister-in-law’s American friend Mila. She’s a rebellious little thing, with fiery passion simmering beneath her icy exterior. Although Mila’s never been more than coldly polite to him, Rashid will do what it takes to win her over.

Mila isn't what Rashid is expecting and Rashid isn't what Mila expects, but that is what makes this story so sweet. I love how they both are so different than what they appear to be and that they are happy with themselves as they are for the most part. This is a great sweet story and I loved the sparks that fly. Erin did a great job narrating and reproducing these two with her voice.

I really enjoyed Liyah and Asad's story. I always enjoy a story with a happily ever after and this one doesn't disappoint. I find it sweet when two people love each other when happenstance throws them together. I really enjoyed that these two normally would never have been a couple and yet they are perfect for each other. I really enjoyed Erin's narration and the different attitudes her voice took for each character.

I really enjoyed hearing about Eira and her three crazy mates. It's kinda cool thinking about Jack Frost in the modern age especially when you add in the snow flakes. I really like getting to learn about each of Eira's mates and some of their different quirks. It's really sweet how they all seem willing to work together and that they don't seem to be fighting over who's top dog. Marina did a great job narrating and I think her accent gave it a different twist and made for a soothing listen.

I loved getting back into this awesome story. Ember and Stefan are in for the fight of their life and they are so far away from each other. I love how you get to see whats going on with both of them and you see how devious the leaders really are around them. I love how this story has drama action suspense and just about everything else. While I was listening to Stacey narrate in her wonderful voice I was on the edge of my seat and almost listened to it all in one sitting. I'm absolutely loving this series and I can't wait to listen to the 3rd book and get sucked in again.

I really enjoyed Ember's story. At times she seems like a timid meek girl, but she has a backbone of steel. Finding out about all her powers and what they mean is awesome. I really enjoy that this story started on Earth even if it is different from what we have now. Everything going from Earth to space is pretty cool. I highly enjoyed listening to Stacey narrate and the different voices and accents she uses. I really hope to find out more about the two opposing factions and to find out what is really going on and what started it all.
