Merry Gentry pretends to be human. She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency. But all of this is just a disguise; in fact she is a princess of faerie, her real name is Meredith Nic Essus, and she had to flee the Dark Court of Faerie because of attempts on her life. In order to inherit her rightful crown, Merry needed to conceive an heir, a notoriously difficult task for the slow-reproducing Fey. In the 2009 novel Divine Misdemeanors, Merry had finally achieved that goal - and fans have been kept waiting all this time to find out what happens!

Against my better judgement I finished this series, I wished I hadn’t started it. I love LKH Anita Blake series so I thought I would give this one a try but honestly their was no point to the series as a whole. No story line. To my the books boiled down to ex P.I. sex more sex few word then major character dies the end. Don’t get me wrong I’m not against a character being killed off if it has a point but this honest only seem as a way to end the book. It in no way enhanced the story line.

Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn't the best idea she'd ever had, but she was desperate - she wasn't about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.

This story is about a girl trying to find her way back to who she once was. Long the way she meets a few new friends and helps heals.

I honestly can't wait to see what the author is going to do next.

Would you consider the audio edition of Howl's Moving Castle to be better than the print version?

Since I haven't read the printed version I don't know. But I loved listening to this book. I bought three more by this author! I'm sad their will be no more books.

What about Jenny Sterlin’s performance did you like?

Great Job from Jenny Sterlin! I would listen to her again any time.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! and I did.

Any additional comments?

This was one of the best books I have bought on sale from Audioable! I have bought over 200 books and this is one of my favorites after one listen.
