She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

I absolutely LOVED this book. I actually read it and then decided I wanted to hear it too. It was that good. Girl is considered nuts but is actually seeing the future, tied into tarot cards she is one of the good cards and to save the world must find the other cards (people) and destroy them. It did get a little slow and repetitive at times but it's all building to a huge tie in. Unfortunatley there are going to be sequels to wait impatiently for but if the author continues as strong as this first book it will be well worth it.

Oh my goodness, this is the kind of book I live fore\!! Never wanted it to end. What a wonderful heroine, tough girl after her stolen brother and the things she has to go thru and the people she meets. And a huge STANDING OVATION to Heather Lind, she captured the character so well.

Barely 18-year-old heroine Valentine Shapiro got a raw deal in the parent lottery. Her father was part incubus demon, and her mother has never forgiven her for that. Life after high school is tough enough without having to go 15 rounds with your inner demon. Thrown out of the house by her mother, Val puts one foot in front of the other and does the only thing that seems to make any sense--she takes aim at the town vampires.

This is actually a good story about a half human half demon vampire slayer and her hell hound dog Fang. However...did not enjoy the narration...really could have been a great stroy with a better narrator.

Burned-out Hollywood screenwriter Bo Aikens is fed up with life in Los Angeles. He heads out of the hustle and bustle of the big city and arrives in picturesque Black River in Northern California, seeking relaxation and artistic inspiration. In small, idyllic Black River nearly everyone is happy, contented, and welcoming of strangers. But despite the beautiful setting, Bo begins to feel unsettled after several disturbing incidents.

They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

It is narrated by a scottish lady, but you get used to the accent pretty quick. Typical survivor story, with a picked on heroine, but she is tough and turns into a good leader. The ending was kind of abrupt, wondering if there are plans for a sequel.
