Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others - vampires, shape-shifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget.... After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence - in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki's have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what's out there watching you.

I love everything about this series. I only wish the Terra Indigene truly existed. A world in balance, where the greed and bigotry of man (well, of some people anyway) does not rule, but is kept in check by nature herself is enjoyable beyond measure..even though the "keeping in check" part can be quite violent and unforgiving (Facebit, that's nature.) I've been hooked from the very first book about a certain Sweet Blood and The Others, and was delighted to find that I had several books to enjoy with these characters... I love Skippy, the little shifterly challenged member of the Wolfguard. Each storyline delivers and I've never found myself disappointed with my choice.. Every book is a new opportunity to sit back and relax into the best escape, with a supply of my licorice tea, a cozy blanket and cat purring on my lap after a busy day. Ann Bishop creates a world so real that putting the book down (not easy) is just like coming home from an enjoyable holiday trip...I hate having to wait for her next release, because they never come fast enough. I highly recommend her books to any fantasy fan.
(Also, the narration is spot on. She does a wonderful job, and I find her voice perfect for the characters both male, female AND Other whether in human or their Terra Indigene form. I watch for her work with other authors and she never disappoints either)

Prophecy and Modern Times is a delightfully arranged collection of prophecies from both ancient and modern prophets. A foreword by President Ezra Taft Benson sets the stage. Learn how to interpret and understand prophecy. Learn its purpose in your own life. Next, read about prophecies concerning America and Palestine, and see how those ancient men foresaw events that we are living through right now.

The author is/was a brilliant scriptorian and researcher. His knowledge gained over a well spent lifetime of faith and study. I consider it a blessing to have benefit of not only his knowledge, but of the organization that he uses to show how everything from all scripture, prophecy and revelation weave together an eye opening and easily understandable timeline AS WELL as the three differing views of the war upon Jerusalem and it's immediate aftermath, both locally and worldwide. I consider this to be a trusted, foundation reference book to my scriptural library. I highly recommend it.

Midsummer used to be a day of feasts and bonfires. A day when cares were set aside for the joy of grass between our toes, warm hands in our palms, laughter in our hearts. Our celebrations dimmed with the light. Something upset the balance of our woods. Something so deep that even our bonfires can't lure the sun back. And he has something to do with it. Of that we're sure, which is why I'm being given to him.

Gail Shalen's voice is a perfect match for Willow. The story is enchanting, heartbreakingly beautiful, both tragic and hopeful and wraps itself like a cashmere cloud around the listener. I Absolutely loved Willow and Tristan. I expect that I will be thinking of them for a long time to come.

EarthCore is the company with the technology, the resources, and the guts to go after the mother lode. Young executive Connell Kirkland is the company's driving force, pushing himself and those around him to uncover the massive treasure. But at three miles below the surface, where the rocks are so hot they burn bare skin, something has been waiting for centuries. Waiting...and guarding. Kirkland and EarthCore are about to find out first-hand why this treasure has never been unearthed.

Excellent narration. Ray Porter creates a reality with his vocal acting abilities. I'll be looking forward to listening to more of his work. A Unique and addictively gripping storyline. S.Seigler belongs in that elite little club with Preston, Childs, Rollins and McCammon. I'm looking for another book by him right away. MORE. I MUST HAVE MORE! I really connected with the well fleshed characters and mourned at not a few deaths. Also,I actually felt sorry for the Rocktipie. They may have appeared as monsters to the humans, but so did the humans to them. I especially loved the adorable reactions of the rocktipie young when one of the characters attempted communication. It made me wonder how different the interactions between species could have been had the first contacts been nonviolent and curious as opposed to fearful and violent. The description of the color communication inherent in the Rocktipie made me picture living, expressive opals that loved their children and simply wanted what we all want. Peace and life. Nevertheless, a VERY satisfying story with the hint of sequel possibilities. I'm hoping very much that I'm correct!
