I thought this would be a simple profiling case. Just another Jack the Ripper wannabe, prowling London’s streets, searching for easy kills. I was wrong. This killer is fae, and he’s as elusive as smoke on the wind. But I’m an FBI profiler, and it’s my job to track him down. It doesn’t matter that one of the main suspects - a lethally alluring fae - is trying to seduce me...or kill me, I’m not sure which. I won’t be stopped, not even when panic roils through the streets of London or when the police start to suspect me.

Like many, I don't actually write reviews often, but I enjoyed this book enough to bother. I usually hesitate to read/listen to books with less than 1,000 ratings, but Amazon insisted I would enjoy this one. Turns out, Amazon was right.

I hate books where the heroine makes stupid choices in the name of feminism... this isn't one. I hate books when the characters are predestined and cliche... only a whisper of prophecy. And I hate when I know the ending 5 chapters in... should've guessed it, but totally didn't.

I love this book.

I'm devastated that only one of the series is currently on Audible. Hurry up and get the rest recorded - I need this distraction while I fold laundry!!!

It's not easy pretending to be dead - especially when it feels as if you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Between an unfulfilled prophecy, the demon-occupied Lowlands, the continuing power of murderous Aifric Moncrieffe - not to mention her constant yearnings for Byron - Integrity Adair has a lot to worry about. Still, how hard can it really be to save Scotland, maintain her morals, get the guy, and keep her sense of humor?

I just binge - listened to the whole series! I have a new author in my top 10 favorites! These characters live in a fantasy world, but they live real lives. They are flawed, but it's okay. They aren't "perfect for each other" but find love anyway. It's believable.

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire-eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance. Hanging around a film set can't be hard - or dangerous - right?

I rarely write actual reviews, but I have to give a shout out to both writer and reader for this one. The plot is twisty enough to entertain without stressing me out. The main character is funny, kind, and above all, intelligent. None of those cringing "why do you suddenly think you don't need help saving the world when you couldn't find your own keys last chapter" moments. I'm looking forward to the third coming out on Audible!

The Psy/Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies, new allies, and wary loners. But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment.

I read, and am thus reviewing this, a year late. I'm late because I didn't want to read it, especially after the top reviews here. I wanted to fall in love with new characters, not meet again characters for whom I'd already envisioned a happily ever after. But with the next book now out, I knew I couldn't skip one entirely.

I am so glad this book exists. I feel like I felt at the end of Harry Potter 7... I know where my friends are, what they're doing. And I feel like our author has set us up for a new round of adventure, rather than forcing herself to remain in the closed circuit she created. It is a beautiful transition piece, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

  • The History of Ancient Rome

Even today, the influence of Ancient Rome is indelible, with Europe and the world owing this extraordinary empire a huge cultural debt in almost every important category of human endeavor, including art, architecture, engineering, language, literature, law, and religion. At the peak of its power, Rome's span was vast. In the regional, restless, and shifting history of continental Europe, the Roman Empire stands as a towering monument to scale and stability, unified in politics and law, stretching from the sands of Syria to the moors of Scotland. And it stood for almost 700 years.In this series of 48 spirited lectures, you'll see how a small village of shepherds and farmers rose to tower over the civilized world of its day and left a permanent mark on history. In telling Rome's riveting story, Professor Fagan draws on a wealth of primary and secondary sources, including recent historical and archaeological scholarship, to introduce the fascinating tale of Rome's rise and decline, including the famous events and personalities that have become so familiar: . Horatius at the bridge . Hannibal crossing the Alps during Rome's life-or-death war with Carthage . Caesar assassinated before a statue of his archrival Pompey . The doomed lovers Antony and Cleopatra . The mad and venal emperors Nero and Caligula . The conversion of Constantine The course also addresses one of history's greatest questions: Why did the Roman Empire fall? And you'll learn why most modern scholars believe that the empire did not "fall" at all, but, rather, changed into something very different-the less urbanized, more rural, early medieval world.

... And I do love to read!

I'm currently about halfway through Professor Fagan's "The History of Ancient Rome" in Audible's Great Courses, and it's been well-worth every minute. I am a high school Latin teacher, and I needed a good refresher course on Roman history, as it's been a long time since college. Not only is the material fantastic (despite early attempts to just listen while doing laundry, etc., I've planted myself in front of my laptop because I can't stop taking notes), but Dr. Fagan is an entertaining speaker. (He has a wonderful accent.) The combination has made Roman history far easier to get through than would be a traditional textbook.
