When puberty brings on her first shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years - until finally learning to change back. She can change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two-year disappearance was because she'd been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats, and no alpha.

This felt more like listening to someone describe what happened in a book they read than actually reading a book myself. There was very little dialogue or action and way too much dry "this happened and then this happened." The whole book felt like a preface and I kept waiting for the actual story to start.
I tried to like it. A YA Paranormal story about a werecat with my name seemed super fun and light but it was just not engaging or entertaining. So boring.

When the immortal Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged, and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit. Only the long-lost Song of Making - a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of life itself - can save the planet.

I was devastated when I found out Phil Gigante would not be narrating this book.
I like Luke Daniels a lot. I've listened to a lot of books he's narrated. I was worried that Luke's voice was a more goofy and way less sexy than Phil Gigante's. I agree that Phil's voice is about the sexiest thing on earth and he made Jerrico Barrons come alive in a way not one else can.

However, once I found out that the reason he is not narrating any more KMM books is that he is in prison for sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl, he became a lot less sexy to me.

The book was another fantastic entry in the Fever series. After I accepted that Phil was gone I realized that Luke Daniels did a very good job. His only flaw was not being Phil Gigante, which I now thinks is a huge mark in his favor. He may be a little goofy but at least he is not a convicted pedophile.

I thought Jill was great! Ioved her voice for Mac. I know change is hard but we have to adapt.

Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

I LOOOOOVE this series and I loved ICED.
I was so excited about this book!

However, I feel like this one undid all the progress made in Iced without advancing the overall story at all.

I did enjoy the idea of Danny's split personality and her being raised specifically by Rowena to be a weapon, but I was really disappointed in the 5 lost years of her life. I loved the developing relationships between Danny, Ryoden and Dancer and this blows them all of the water.

It's not that i was unhappy to revisit Mac and Barrons, I adore them but I was so getting into the story of Danny.

I know she was getting some flack about how young Danny was and this is a way around that but I would have liked more time to get to know her before this time-jump happened.

In the end, i found myself feeling lie nothing really happened. This is the first time i've felt that way about one of KMM's books as she is an amazingly creative, passionate writer.

I'll totally read the next one though, because I'm sure it will be better.

Awesome. Really, just a London cop story with an added creepy, horrible, baby-boiling witch. I loved how these sensible, gritty undercover cops learn to deal with the crazy world they've been thrown into. They approach it with the tools they have and do a great job.
Loved the narrator. He did a great job brining these colorful characters to life.

Lily Harper narrowly survived her first mission as a Soul Retriever in the first level of the Underground City. After that harrowing trip, she wants nothing more than some downtime, but as with most things involving the afterlife, nothing ever quite works out the way Lily wants it to. Her newest mission will see her traveling to the sewer aqueduct of the Underground City and later, the prison. But, luckily for Lily, she’s got the hunky yet antisocial bladesmith Tallis Black by her side. And quite possibly unluckily for her, she’s also got her guardian angel, Bill, who’s up to his old, foul-mouthed antics.

I love HP Mallory and this series is fun and entertaining. I have a little trouble with the narrator though because she sounds like a little kid and seems pretty inexperienced. Her Scottish accent is actually not bad but I really think this series would benefit from a more mature or reader.

Entertaining and sexy enough but not great. Not terribly original. Lot's of similarities to J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood.
I did get swept up in the story because I like this sort of thing so it was worth the credit.

Now, those roads have drawn close and merged for a collection of five collaborative stories guaranteed to shock, amuse, disgust, and bring lovers of extreme fiction back for more.

When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

OK, so I was as disappointed as everyone else when I saw that James Martsers was not narrating this but John Glover is good. It was a little different interpretation but he is a very good actor and his performance was solid and I didn't miss Martsers after I got used to him.

I missed Harry and was so glad to tuck into another Dresden Files book! Ghost Story is solid, funny, exciting and engaging, just like all the rest.

If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.
