The story of this book is very good. Diverse characters and fun.

The guest reader is great but listening to the story and listening I the voices the regular reader used don’t match well. There is an entire race that sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his younger days. Just didn’t do anything to help the story along for me.

Bigfoot is real. Yancy Lazarus - mage, bluesman, and rambler - knows because there happens to be a nine-foot-tall, walking myth standing in the road, flagging him down. Yancy just can't escape his reputation as a supernatural fix-it man even when cruising through the forgotten backwoods of Montana. Turns out Bigfoot has a serious problem on his hands: one of his own has gone rogue, developing a taste for the flesh of humans and Sasquatch alike.

If you enjoy books like the Dreson files this is right up your alley.

Likes: magic, mythical creatures, mystery, the blues, music, not smutty romance but still has romance at the edges.

Dislikes: The language is very rough most of the time. It was ok for me but not a book for kids or those easily offended.

My name is Jemma Blackburn, and I'm a Slayer. Finding out I wasn't human was only the beginning of my problems. My best friend, Taylor, is still missing, and so is the Immortal Amulet, and it's my job alone to get them both back. I don't know who I can trust, and I'm still not sure I'm cut out for any of this, but I'm determined to figure it all out, or die trying. As if that wasn't bad enough, there's a new enemy in town and they've come bearing gifts - an ancient prophecy that is going to blur the very lines between good and evil. And, apparently, my blood is tied to the center of it.

If you like mostly teenage first love, first times and heavy panting then this is the book for you. The plot is almost non existent. There is 80 percent descriptions of lust and only maybe 20 of actual story. The biggest problem I have with this story is it wasn't finished. It was intentionally left as a climactic cliffhanger to guarantee you have to buy the next book to maybe get to a conclusion.

The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The climax of the book keeps surprising you with it's twists and turns while the ending leaves you guessing what the next book will hold.

Any additional comments?

(POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT) For those of you who like Ivy, She is almost non-existent in this book. Many of the other base characters are not very active either. A lot of the formerly background characters are brought to the front and discussed in more details and you learn more history about the Demons and Gargoyles.

Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.
