Months after the explosive events in A Court of Wings and Ruin, Feyre, Rhys, and their companions are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated - scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court....

This was a lackluster novel compared to the others. Left lot to be desired and hated the jump from character to character. Will be requesting my credit back. Not at all worth it.

In The Dragon on the Border, Sir James, the Dragon Knight, faces his most terrifying challenge - the Hollow Men, spirits of the dead in empty suits of armour. Their weapons are all too real, and a slain Hollow Man can be resurrected within two days. As long as one of their unholy number endures, no Hollow Man can ever truly die It's a battle that could test any dragon. Not to mention a knight. Or an American. Or all three in one!

Thrown into the alternate universe of 14th-century England, 20th-century mathematician Jim Eckert and his wife, Angie, have become Sir James, Baron de Bois de Malencontri, and Lady Angela. A bit of a shock, but they'd coped with it. In fact they were dealing with their new life's hazards and magical manifestations just fine. Until Jim is suddenly transformed into a dragon. None too pleased about this latest turn of events, Jim turns for help to his neighbour, the magician S. Carolinus, who takes him on as an apprentice.

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls that echo the screams of the poor souls inside. In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn't remember why she's in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood.

I appreciate the fact that this was a good mystery without involving Romance. I look forward to listening to her other mysteries in the series. narration was very good as well, and the plot was very good. I like the fact that it was a mystery that focused on the mystery and the events and not a side Romance. I recommend this if you're looking for a nice mystery without all that sappy romance mixed in.

A set textbook at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry since publication, Newt Scamander's masterpiece has entertained wizarding families through the generations. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an indispensable introduction to the magical beasts of the wizarding world. Scamander's years of travel and research have created a tome of unparalleled importance.

What would have made Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them better?

I thought this would be the book the movie was based on, it is NOT. What is it? It is an hour-plus long description in alphabetical order of the creatures found within the Harry Potter world. An encyclopedia of magical beasts. I was so disappointed I wish I could get a refund!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The game's afoot once more as the long-suffering Dr. John Watson and a partially decomposed Warlock Holmes (though he's getting better) face off against Moriarty's gang, the Pinkertons, flesh-eating horses, a parliament of imps, boredom, Surrey, a succubus, an overly Canadian aristocrat, a tricycle fight to the death, and the dreaded Pumpcrow. Oh, and a hellhound, one assumes.

having listened to the first in the series and this one I found the first to be a little bit more enjoyable a little bit more satirical and a nicer parody to the Sherlock Holmes series however this was not bad it just wasn't quite as witty as the first one. I hope if there is a third one in the works that hits will be more like the first in the series . This one fell short certain areas and it felt a little flat too.

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes. Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety.

This narration and this book is just absolutely hilarious. I could not stop laughing at the paradies to the original Sherlock Holmes as well as the narration which was superb. I am looking forward to seeing whether or not there is a sequel to this because I would like to learn what happens next. I absolutely think that this is a beneficial purchase and I will get the next one in the series if there is one.

When a brooch is broken, some of its magic is lost. When NYPD detective JL O'Grady is invited to be her brother's plus-one at Montgomery Winery's end-of-harvest gala, she plans to enjoy a fabulous weekend in Napa drinking wine, enjoying sunset dinners on the veranda, and watching her brother's high school basketball tournament. Instead, she's pulled into a murder investigation hauntingly similar to a New York City racketeering and drug case that nearly ended her career.
