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 was a little worried about this book based on the reviews I read but I needn't have been. I really enjoyed this book and had many laugh out loud moments! I highly recommend this continuing series following The Others!

That is what I kept thinking throughout this book. Who doesn't tell their closest friends about the loan shark dilemma? Stealing money from your employer?? I know she's young no one can be that clueless. I enjoyed the story overall but April really annoyed me much of the time.

Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it. When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!

Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of four centuries of witches - a family given to poetry and incest, murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being called Lasher who haunts the Mayfair women....

I read this book when it first came out and liked it so when I saw it on audible I decided to give it a listen. I enjoyed the reading with one exception. The male characters, excluding Lasher and Aaron Lightner, all sounded like they were cabbies from Brooklyn NY. Michael's accent was the worst. Other than that it was a solid performance.

Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

I've read this series from the beginning and enjoyed them, especially the earlier books, but the last several books have been a disappointment. This book is almost ruined by Corrie Swanson. She is too much of an idiot to enjoy reading about. I spent so much time being annoyed and baffled by her thought processes, complaints and poor decision-making that it distracted me from the story as a whole. The scene with the blizzard, snow mobile and abandoned mine was almost more than I could bear listening to. Ugh. I will pass on further books that include Corrie or, heaven forbid, Tristram. I've read this series from the beginning but the last several books have been a disappointment.

As other reviewers have said, this book is not well written. I thought I would never get over the constant use of acronyms, it seemed over the top and totally affected. The repetition of tasks (washing dishes, getting water, where the guns were placed while sleeping) and obvious statements (I just want to get home, well duh) became totally annoying after a while. Perhaps the author was going for a minimum word count because it certainly didn't add to the story. I also had a problem with the narration, especially once the 3 traveling companions split up. I don't know if it was the producer's error or the narrator's style but there were no discernible transitions (even a pause would have been helpful) from one story line to the other leaving me with way too many, huh? moments. I see no reason to spend another credit on this series. If you want to read a book on this topic try One Second After by William R. Forstchen or the classic Alas, Babylon. I enjoyed both books very much.

Tragedy and mental illness have been dark companions of Rae Newborn for more than 50 years. Her life seems to start rebuilding itself, though, when she moves to a deserted island to restore the house her mysterious great-uncle built in the 1920s. But Rae senses powerful forces stirring on the island. Is the skin-crawling feeling she has of someone watching her only in her mind, or has something disturbingly real taken notice of Rae?

The quality of the narration can make or break a story for me. The narrator of this book, Frank Mueller, is by far the very worst one I have ever heard. I would not even consider buying book where he is the narrator. He has a very soft sing-song voice and he ends every sentence with a breathy overly dramatic voice as if every sentence needs extra emphasis. It's so annoying and very distracting and that's just the general narration. His character voices are comical. I will not be able to complete this audio book. What a waste of money. I like Laurie R. King as an author so my best advice is to go with a traditional book on this one.
