When Evie receives life-changing - and possibly game-changing - news, she has trouble believing it. Why doesn't she feel any different? Is it possible someone she trusts might be lying? Tensions seethe inside the castle of lost time as Evie starts to doubt her own sanity. Answers can be found outside their stronghold, but will Death help her find them - or prevent her from learning the truth about her future and Jack's possible survival? A mysterious, sinister power begins to affect the Arcana in its path. Forced out into the wasteland alone, Evie must depend on unexpected allies. But as a battle with Richter looms, can her new alliance defeat the Dark Calling before hell reigns on earth?

The first chapter of this series was tacked onto the end of another book series I love, so I gave it a shot. WOW!!!! I was hooked immediately. This series is addictive, action packed, funny, romantic, sexy, suspenseful, scary... just straight up fun to listen to/ read. It is considered Young Adult, which I usually don't get into that much, but I would say this book is for 14++ yr olds for sure, with mature content not for the faint of heart either. I lost many hours of sleep listening to the absolutely perfect Emma Galvin's melodious voice, not just in this book, but the whole series, which I am voraciously devouring. In a post-apocalyptic world, the fate of the world depends on the choices of a select few, and boy is it an epic story!
This book is like Divergent (another perfectly narrated tome by Emma Galvin), meets The Walking Dead, meets Twilight-- but not in a creepy 'copying' way, this book definitely tells it's own story. A smoothly written love story? Dystopian adventure? Horror tale? I cannot pigeonhole it, I will just say, The Arcana Chronicles is a wild adventure that is worth the ride! Buy this book!!!

Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead. When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow - accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings emerge multiplied.

Robert Petkoff is really just one of my top 5 narrators at this point! He is soooo good, so smooth, accents are right on, even girl voices sound on point, if just a wee bit masculine. This series is really good, action packed, very steamy, I love it! Glad I started it! The writing is consistently good and the stories are interconnected in a great way. Lots of pop culture references, which I love, and fast paced- yet easy to follow. I find myself wishing the books were longer, but at the same time I feel the stories were played out to their conclusion, if that makes sense. If you want action, a little suspense, humor, supernatural characters,and lots and lots of steamy (ah-hem) scenes-- then, get this series!!

Let me preface this review by saying; I am Italian, and this series features a lot of Italian characters, so I may be a bit biased, but wow, I love these books! I cannot wait for the next one to come out. The Shadow Rider supernatural creature is a new one for me, I'd never considered it until the first book, but now I love the concept. The whole lore is very thought out and I am super interested to learn what else the Riders can do. The stories are supernatural romance in general, but there is a lot of action and, of course- a must for me, humor as well. They are also hot and sexy, with a slow burn that will have you on edge and happy about it. Jim Frangione is just the bestest, sigh, I could listen to him all day, oh wait, I kind of do. This is the kind of series that I will pick back up and read again and again.

This series seems to feature all of the usual Fae characters; vampires, werewolves, Valkyrie, ghouls, wraiths, etc, etc. This is the first book, sort of an introduction to the world painted here and it hits the mark easily. All with little intriguing twists on the lore. In my mind, it would be rated R+++, it is hot and sexy. The writing is smooth, at first I was worried about continuity, but it catches up with itself and I was easily able to forget any early on issues as the book progressed. It is well written and easy to follow, and it did make me blush! Robert Petkoff is amazing, easily in my top 5 narrators now. His accents are top notch! I will definitely continue this series, and I feel it is worth a listen if you like supernatural love stories that have (ahem), bite.

I was intrigued by the interesting premise of this book. I usually go for more straight up sci-fi, but this is close... at least I don't think we have any sentient androids... yet, lol. The writing was smooth and the story interesting and easy to get lost in. There is a bit of everything here; action, romance, humor, and drama. I finished the book in a few days, which for me, is sign that I really liked it. The narrator is Scottish (she sounds a bit like Karen Gillan to me), and she is a bit rough at parts, but overall I think she does a good job. If you are a romance fan that likes your books a mixed lot with humor and action thrown in, then I would definitely recommend Love for Sale!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Whether it's fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he's not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses - both legitimate and illegitimate. While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone - until now.

Jill Tanner is the absolute perfect narrator for this wonderful swashbuckling, heart pounding, beautifully written, memorable tale. I wish I could give it more stars.

This series is just the best! I love Allison McLemore, she IS angel Crawford, the witty zombie with the heart of gold. If you've read the other books in this series, then stop reading and start downloading, cause this book is awesome! I wish they would make a movie out of this series. There are all your standard mystery elements here, lots of action, standard cussing, not much romance though. Some old characters make a resurgence. I highly recommend this book, it's funny, action packed, and well written.
