A hundred years in the future, it’s a world where supernatural beings live among humans. Of course, they’re forced to take the Undead Oath; they must not prey on humans for food. Just as with other minorities, they battle prejudice and must struggle to prove themselves. Alongside the humans’ bigotry is a criminal element, as seen in any group in society. The Dallas Police Department sets up an elite new squad of Immortal detectives and officers, dedicated to solving crimes among the Undead. Headed by veteran Lacey Anderson, can the Undead Unit overcome its obstacles?

Great second installment to The Undead Unit series. I enjoyed this one more than the first. It flowed much better and the story’s pace was nice and steady. The concept of stealing souls was done in a really original way. One thing that bothered me was that Asians were referred to as Orientals which now a days is not very PC. Asians are people Orientals are carpets. Other than that it was a well put together book. I can’t wait to move onto the next in the series.
The narrator did a nice job of distinguishing between the different characters though he could have put a bit more enthusiasm and emotion into his portrayal of them.

This was my favorite book of this series! It was full of nonstop action and humor. As the series has gone on each of the characters have gained more depth. I really liked that Saint Peter had a big part in this book. Beezie has always been one of my favorites and I love how Cain makes a point to bring back all the characters from the other books even if it’s just for a small part. I hope this isn’t the last book about Steve Minion and the Circles of Hell. I’ve really come to enjoy them.
The narrator for these books does an excellent job. Each character has a distinctive voice and personality. He speaks clearly and is easy to understand. He definitely adds something special to the series.

This was quite a comical paranormal fiction novel about a regular guy who unexpectedly inherits a large fortune. Two of his family friends find out and want in on the money and that’s where the shenanigans begin. There was also a romantic aspect which worked well. The pace was steady and the main character Alex was very likable. The paranormal side to the story added to the uniqueness to it.
The narrator did a great job with the voices and distinguished between the characters well. He was easy to understand and brought the story to life.

Cara Snow is newly divorced, stuck working for a jerky boss at a pet boutique, and dreading her soon-to-be-empty nest with only her beloved corgi for company. Worse still, her ex just got engaged. Doesn’t she deserve some romance, too? Or, at least a date for the Fur Ball. She’s always enjoyed the annual pet rescue gala, but this year her ex will be there with his fiancée. Meanwhile, Cara hasn’t met anyone — other than the irresistible dogs at the boutique’s adoption events. Cara is shocked when her wish to fall for a man as easily as she does for those mutts summons Vincent. His velour track suit, paunchy belly, and tough-guy accent don't exactly fit her childhood image of a fairy godfather. Not exactly on top of his game, he admits to being twenty-five years late.

Stray Magic is the first book I’ve read by this author and I don’t think it will be my last. It was adorable! It had everything I love in it. Dogs, magic, fairy godmothers (well fathers!) and tons of humor! I actually found myself laughing out loud more than once while listening to it. The characters were likable and the story was fast paced. The dog information was on point too. That’s something I like. The author talked about the rescue finding the right owners for the dogs and about what the dogs behaviors meant. I felt like she really knew her stuff.
Aisling Gray the narrator was a perfect choice for this book. Her portrayal of Vincent the fairy godfather was fabulous. The way she did his different accents was hysterical! She really brought the story to life.

This was a pretty entertaining sci-fi space opera. The plot had me hooked right away since Teach was a down and out hero brought back to his glory. Kind of like Han Solo. It was action packed though there were a few lulls. I liked the different aliens and the characters were likable. I usually reach for more fantasy focused books so sci-fi space stuff isn’t really my thing but there was a lot of action and along with the humor inserted in all the right places this was a fun experience. I’m a huge Sarah Noffke fan and though I enjoyed this collaboration it’s not my favorite of her work.

They were just kids when Claudette McPhearson took them all in. Eight of them all together. All different races and ethnic makeups, but she loved them as her own. One woman taught them how to love, trust, and respect one another. She was the only glue that kept them together, the only one they wanted to please and never let down. She had been their light at the end of a long troublesome tunnel - it shined so bright. Then, one dreadful day, it all came to a crashing halt.

Somehow this audiobook got lost among the hundreds I’ve downloaded to my Audible app and I am just getting to it now. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long. The audiobook production was awesome. Each character had a distinct voice and personality. Once I started listening I couldn’t stop. It was fast paced and full of action. The story was unique and full of unexpected twists and turns. Each character had depth and a thorough back story. There were some aspects of the book that were far fetched and less believable than others but I don’t think that they took away from the story itself. I actually enjoyed it much more than I thought I would based on the brief summary that I read. Now that I’ve started the series I feel pretty invested and can’t wait to start the next book.

This was such a fun quick read. It’s a great way to get into the series if you haven’t started it yet. Ivy Granger is a supernatural detective along with her partner Jinx. They get called on for all sorts of wild cases. This one in particular was pretty interesting. I don’t want to give anything away but the end result was definitely not what I was expecting. The narrator definitely fit Ivy’s character and worked well for the book. Overall I really enjoyed this short story. I can’t wait to get into this series!

I enjoyed this quick, light paranormal mystery. The characters had some depth to them and the world building in Bruges was well done. Parts of the plot were predictable but that didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the story. Jenna’s character wasn’t my favorite. She was kind of a know it all and wanted to do everything by the book until there came a time when breaking the rules would help her in which case that was ok because it suited her needs. Ash was a great character. He was easy going and funny. He balanced out the typical warrior in Jenna well. The narrators for this audiobook did a good job. It was well produced and they both spoke clearly and portrayed all of their characters with enthusiasm. I do wish that Jenna’s character didn’t sound so whiny though.
I’m curious to find out what happens what happens on the sequel once it comes out. It should be especially fun to listen to now that the story is established and the team is established.

Great follow up to the first book in the series! In this one the class goes on a trip to the museum to see the dinosaurs and one of the kids smuggles T-Rab in her backpack so he can come along too. He sneaks off and goes on his own little adventure. T-Rab’s nemesis, the stuffed tiger, also makes another appearance to shake things up. As usual a bit of silly chaos ensues but is all cleaned up nicely in the end. This series is so much fun to listen to!!! The narrator does a wonderful job capturing all the different personalities of the characters. He does an especially great job with T-Rab. Kids will love listening to this and it will definitely hold their attention because of all the action. There is also a section at the end that talks about bunny care and the responsibilities of having a bunny as a pet. This is great for kids. It’s done in a way that they can relate to and can learn something. I can’t wait for the next in the series to be released!
