Undone is by far my favorite in the Vampire Awakening series. Sweet Abby and cocky Brian square off for a battle of wills that is entertaining and hot. Davies does an excellent job with writing intimate scenes. Looking forward to the next book. The narrator did a good job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

Paige has spent the past four years of her life training to fight and kill vampires. Her desire for revenge is the only thing that's kept her going, so when she's forced into hiding with Ian, she's determined to believe he's nothing but another monster in need of beheading. The more time they spend together, the more she begins to question what she's always believed about vampires. Unfortunately, if she lets him in, she'll have to admit that what she's fought so hard for may be nothing but a lie.

A movie deal for the devil's autobiography slash romance? Priceless. Maybe I should choose George Clooney to play me in the movie.... No. Too gray. As much as I can't see anyone playing me but me, I have far more important issues on my agenda - like finding the woman who stole my soul. Well, not exactly stole.... I might have made the switch and taken hers, but the siren Elle Rinoa has my soul nonetheless. Maybe Brad Pitt would be a good Lucifer.... No. Too blond.

Ivy thought that she and Adrian had conquered their fates. Yet with thousands of innocents still trapped in the demon realms, she's determined to locate the final hallowed weapon and harness its unparalleled power to free them. But the last relic nearly put Ivy in the grave - there's probably no coming back from this one. Adrian's dark lineage has made him the most powerful of his kind, yet even his incredible abilities might not be enough now. Instead, the treacherous fate he has fought so hard to escape might be the only way he can save Ivy.

This novella was not at all what I was expecting or hoping for. Definitely a filler story of how the troops are all living/surviving post war. One of the character’s response was surprising and honestly quite sad. I liked the different character perspectives. Though the novella was good the story had so much potential to be more but it just felt half finished. The narrator did a nice job.

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Death is what grim reaper Lucien Dupree knows best. Or rather, he did until his reaping powers became tragically unreliable. Now he’s living in a self-imposed exile to keep humanity safe. Sure, it’s a lonely existence, but it’s the best thing for everyone.

Another cute paranormal romance story with a side of mystery by Ms. Painter. The Reaper Rescues the Genie is tender, guarding, loving, and humorous providing hours of entertainment. The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene. Highly recommend this series for anyone needing laughs mixed with a bit of romance.

Overall, I’d give this story 3.5 stars. Plenty of action, twists & turns, death, intimacy, and some truths. There are a few scenes that felt forced or didn’t necessarily aide the storyline. But other than that my only real gripe is the whinnying inter monologue by Feyre during critical times. Shake, shake, shake! Uggh! Anyway, overall A Court of Wings & Ruin was entertaining. I have this book in both ebook & audiobook versions. The narrator did a nice job with providing unique voices and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the king of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica - the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire.

Maas does it again with a nail biting tale featuring Chaol & Neseryn in Antica. The story was exciting and an edge of your seat thrill ride from beginning to the very end. The characters are interesting and have depth. The story can be read as a standalone book but is definitely enjoyed more if read in the order of the series. Not a book for anyone under 16 due to intimte scenes. The narrator did an awesome job as always!

Shenanigans, a crazy family, a blizzard, surprise guests, and an unexpected death combine for a comedic mystery. As much as Aunt Pearl would drive me in sane, I enjoy the chaos she brings.

After narrowly surviving my debut into the magical world, I made a promise to myself: no more hiding in broom closets. But with the Mages' Guild reorganizing faster than anyone thought possible, and naming me as their number one target, that promise seems a little far-fetched. Especially since my training with Callie and Dizzy, the highly experienced dual-mage pair, goes off like a cake in a cannon. Left to find someone that can fill the role, it isn't until a formal dinner party goes horribly wrong that I find the best (and worst) solution imaginable: Reagan Somerset, the leather-clad crazy woman who busted into my broom closet sanctuary in the first place.

Wowser! I'm suffering from a book hangover! The story is very entertaining, hilarious, and it was just simply cool that characters from the Fire and Ice trilogy make a substantial appearance in this book! I laughed, yelled, and wanted to help kick some rear! The story was unpredictable and exciting! The characters are snarky, sarcastic, and quite funny! Going back for a second listen! Nicole Poole did a nice job with providing individual voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.
