Trisk and her hated rival, Kal, have the same goal: save their species from extinction. But death comes in the guise of hope when a genetically modified tomato created to feed the world combines with the government's new tactical virus, giving it an unexpected host and a mode of transport. Plague rises, giving the paranormal species the choice to stay hidden and allow humanity to die or to show themselves in a bid to save them.

I have listened to the hollows 3 times but Im not liking this one so much. I loved the humor in the series so I figured this would be the same but so far it's dark to me. I will finish it if I can but it's ruining some of the characters for me. I'll change my review if I get through it and find some humor.

How could the exuberant, exacting woman they loved disappear so abruptly, seemingly without reason, from their lives?

This book brought so much understanding of how suicide or sudden death can devastate the people left behind. Any one who has gone through anything like that or is concidering it themselves needs to read this book. It is a good book for so many reasons, a husbund who puts work ahead of family needs to read it, teenagers that are so wrapped up in their own lives need to read this. I plan to give this book to all my family, thats how strongly I feel. It can change the way we take for granted the people we love. I want to thank the author for writing this it has changed my world!

I really got fooled by the different characters and that doesn't happen very often. I'm pretty good at figuring out who is good and bad but the stories have a lot of twists so they gave me a great ride. I did felt bad for Tamlin I hope Sarah gives us another book where he finds happiness that would be a good finish. As far as the new narrator in the 3rd book I was very apprehensive because of all the complaints but she was good different but good. I will look for more from the author, I enjoyed this series very much.

Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city's underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl. My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I'm not holding out much hope that she's still alive.

Imagine for a moment that you are a Dragon. A creature of unimaginable power, unending intelligence and strength, and you've just woken from 10,000 years of slumber. Worse yet, you've awoken underneath a city: Boston, an alien and strange place that defies everything you've ever known. Your last memories are of primordial forests, erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world, faeries, witches, vampires, krakens, and monsters that feared where you turned your eyes.

I like these books a lot but I think they would sell much faster if grouped in twos or more, no one likes to use a credit on 7 hours. It feels like they are split up when moving from book to book, so give the listeners a break and combine the books for a credit they will do better. The series is fun and makes me laugh but kind of the same thing with small changes book after book. Definitely worth getting if they are sold in sets.

It took me a while to get used to the narrator but once I did I loved these books. They are good fun books with excitement, fear, humor and a little romance. The star of these books is a little ditzy and she keeps to many secrets from the people who are looking out for her. It's easy to think TELL SOMEONE WHATS HAPPENING but if she did the stories wouldn't have you on the edge of your seat. I have a hard time with books that the create so much animosity between characters due to the lack of comunacation and at first I thought that was going to be all these books were one lie after another, but I soon got so hooked I started to enjoy the stars sometime hair brained actions. The author did a great job creating a character that was not dumb but naive and sweet, a mob boss that you grow to love, a hitman so hot and a very understanding husband who is hot too. There's a lot of other characters in the books and all are well developed, I really enjoyed all of the books and would recommend them to anyone who needs a lift in their day. I can compare them to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series fun.

I've listened to a lot of books in this genre, this book was pretty much the same as the others. Lots of teenage anxiety but the plot was new so I enjoyed it. I get tired of the come here, get away, come here that a lot of authors do to the main characters, but this was a good pass the time book for me. It held my attention enough that I'm going to get the next book.
