Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken's doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds "Fluffy" vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max's human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense.

I've read her "Accidently Paranormal" series. It has a richness and depth to its characters and the sex is just right for the stories. It's pretty sweet. Maybe this Werewolf series is older because strangely, the volume of sex is way out there. It's not really erotic - it's simply more, longer, drawn out, kinda-crude, ho-hum sex. It was definetely missing something, if that was the intent.. All I got was a predictable "Ho-Hum" story. I'll have to do a little research before I try another one of her books.

It's gives a background story that is just too dark & depressing. And doesn't fit the series. Wish I never read it :(

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

The accent in the narration was just too much... in the beginning especially. I couldn't pay attention to the story anytime I'd try to start listening. However, I'm glad I finally got through that initial part because it's turned out to be a sweet story with strong characters. Hopefully book two will be even better!

How did Fox Mulder become a believer? How did Dana Scully become a skeptic? The X-Files Origins has the answers. The X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos explores the teen years of Fox Mulder, the beloved character depicted in the cult-favorite TV show The X-Files. His story is set in the spring of 1979, when serial murder, the occult, and government conspiracy were highlighted in the news. The audiobook follows Mulder as he experiences life-changing events that set him on the path to becoming an FBI agent.

Like many sequels, this one doesn't live up to the previous books. It's ok.... I was looking for Mayberrys touch on the story. This one doesn't draw you in or bring to life the characters. Can't blame the narrator - he didn't write the story.

The characters are full of life and personality. They show strong female role models in a realistic way. It has a great story that you can easily picture, but enough twists to keep it interesting. It's a series Im happy to indulge in... Off to the next book!!!

If you like a book with strong characters, mystery, relationships and realism, you'll love this series. It is one of those you'll enjoy just as much the next time; even when you know what's going going to happen. It has a richness and quality to it that brings to life the town and history and it's such a breathe of fresh air. The cover is really a terrible fit for this book and easily looked over. However, the voice of Ronconi is perfect and adds so much here to bring it to life. I could go on gushing, so I'll stop now and just say... It's a hidden gem and I can't wait for more of her books!!!

Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises. The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld. Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.

If you wanted to save money, you can start the series with this book or simply forget this book entirely. The narrator goes on and on with descriptions of everything from Books I & II. And don't think there was a technical issue either... The first chapter starts out exactly like one of the other books. I'm sad to say, it's the worst book I've ever finished. I kept thinking, it's going to get better, surely?! I liked the original books, so how could it not? I can only say that I was disappointed to the very end. The characters barely had any life in them. Everything was described instead of experienced. Plus, the storyline was so predictable. I came away thinking time and again, that someone else must have written this book. It was immature, ridiculous and repetitive... Nothing like her other books. It jumped around so much, I found myself rewinding the disc to figure what I must have missed. This was 'The' most aggravating book to try and slog through. I come away feeling like a big dummy having wasted my time bothering at all.

I had a hard time following who was talking because the narrator give a new character the same exact voice. Plus, too much was about the new character. It's a forgettable book, unless you give it a 2nd chance. Still, I wanted more about the original character.

Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

This is part of an incredible series. Larry skillfully takes us on an imaginative journey that is a real roller coaster. It's part of a quirky, funny world that leaves you thinking twice about rushing to get the next book.
