#Audiobook #Review: 4 out of 5 stars for At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost @Jeaniene_Frost @BlackstoneAudio

SERIES: Night Huntress, Book #3
AUTHOR: Jeaniene Frost
NARRATOR: Tavia Gilbert
PUBLISHER: Blackstone Audio
PUBLICATION DATE: November 2, 2010 (first published 2008)
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 9 hrs and 28 mins
GENRE: Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy
Some things just won’t stay buried… at grave’s end.

It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover, Bones, at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’ past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.
MY REVIEW:

This is the third installment in the Night Huntress series, and it has so much going on! Cat really gets put through the wringer with this one.

Bones gets down on bended knee and proposes to Cat, and they plan to have a traditional wedding. Before that can happen, Cat's dad resurfaces with the intent to kill her.

At his request, Bones turns Tate into a vamp. I think maybe Tate thinks that this will make Cat love him, even though he denies it.

Bones and his grandsire, Mencheres, merge their bloodlines before all hell breaks loose and Patra (descendant of Cleopatra and Mencheres' wife) unleashes a curse.

There are so many ups and downs with this one. My emotions were all over the place. It turns out that Bones was right when he said in One Foot in the Grave that all that Justina (Cat's mom) needed was a good shag! I like the new Justina! Hopefully, this is a new beginning for her as she (hopefully) grows to accept Cat's relationship with Bones.

With her brilliant narration of this series, Tavia Gilbert is fast becoming one of my favourite narrators! I just love her!! I love how she brings these characters to life and the uniqueness that she brings to each one. Here is a sample of the narration:

#Audiobook #Review: 2 out of 5 stars for A Cold Day for Murder by Dana Stabenow

SERIES: Kate Shugak, Book #1
AUTHOR: Dana Stabenow
NARRATOR: Marguerite Gavin
PUBLISHER: Brilliance Audio
PUBLICATION DATE: October 18, 2011 (first published 1992)
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 5 hrs 31 mins
GENRE: Mystery
ASIN: B005TKYT5S

Eighteen months ago, Aleut Kate Shugak quit her job investigating sex crimes for the Anchorage DA’s office and retreated to her father’s homestead in a national park in the interior of Alaska. But the world has a way of beating a path to her door, however remote. In the middle of one of the bitterest Decembers in recent memory ex-boss — and ex-lover — Jack Morgan shows up with an FBI agent in tow. A Park ranger with powerful relatives is missing, and now the investigator Jack sent in to look for him is missing, too.

Reluctantly, Kate, along with Mutt, her half-wolf, half-husky sidekick, leaves her wilderness refuge to follow a frozen trail through the Park, twenty thousand square miles of mountain and tundra sparsely populated with hunters, fishermen, trappers, mushers, pilots and homesteaders. Her formidable grandmother and Native chief, Ekaterina Shugak, is — for reasons of her own — against Kate’s investigation; her cousin, Martin, may be Kate’s prime suspect; and the local trooper, Jim Chopin, is more interested in Kate than in her investigation. In the end, the sanctuary she sought after five and a half years in the urban jungles may prove more lethal than anything she left behind in the city streets of Anchorage.

MY REVIEW:

I've seen this book at the library and wanted to read it for a while. When Audible featured it as a Daily Deal, I couldn't resist buying it. However, the book left me a bit underwhelmed.

Let's start with the pluses! I actually love the main character, Kate Shugak. The reason why she retired from the District Attorney's office is because she was involved in a knife fight with a child molester (he lost) and she was injured. She had the highest conviction rate of anyone in the DA's office, and the FBI tried to recruit her. Kate is tough as nails, and she is perfectly happy living on her remote and isolated homestead in barren Alaska.

Kate's former flame and boss, Jack Morgan, pays her a visit and pleads for her help in locating the national park's ranger who has mysteriously disappeared. Jack also has a FBI agent in tow, because the ranger's father is a congressman from Ohio. The investigator that Jack sent to look for the ranger has now disappeared as well. Kate agrees to help out, but she is going to wish that she hadn't!

I thought that this was going to be more of a cat and mouse type of book, with Kate trying to stay one step ahead (or annihilate) the bad guys. She seems the perfect heroine to do that, but it wasn't that type of book. For the first third of the book, Kate was preparing for her search. Finally, when the search started, it was just a lot of talking and very little action. The pace of the story was very slow, and I actually found it to be a bit boring. It won the 1993 Edgar Award, so perhaps I am in the minority. Even so, I do think this series has potential, and there are 21 books published so far. I do love Kate as well as the Alaskan setting, so I am willing to give this series another chance and will continue with the next book in the series, A Fatal Thaw.

This book was narrated by Marguerite Gavin, and she did a fine job but I felt that her voice didn't quite match the main character. Stabenow describes how Kate was slashed across her throat from ear to ear and how the injury damaged her voice and left her with a nasty scar. As a result, I expected Kate to sound more hoarse or gruff. Even still, I am glad that I listened over reading because listening makes it easier to get through a slow story.

MY RATING:

2 stars!! Meh, it was just "okay."

Can't-Wait Wednesday: Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh @claremackint0sh @TheCrimeVault @littlebookcafe

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.


Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Let Me Lie
PUBLISHER: Sphere
EXPECTED PUBLICATION DATE: March 8, 2018
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 400 pages
GENRE: Mystery
ISBN: 9780751564907
The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They're both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to question her parents’ deaths. But by digging up their past, she’ll put her future in danger. Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie…

The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go and I See You.

I have yet to read anything from this author, but her books sound so good! I have both I See You and I Let You Go on my iPod waiting to be listened to. I'm adding this one to the list!

Books That I'm Still Interested In Reading Even Though I'm No Longer A Kid #TopTenTuesday


This is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

The original topic for today's list is:

Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

I get that a reader's interests can change and some books may lose their appeal, but that's not me! So, I'm changing the topic a bit to suit me. I'll go with:


Books That I'm Still Interested In Reading Even Though I'm No Longer A Kid!

by C.S. Lewis
(The Chronicles of Narnia, Books #1-7)
I've never finished this series, and I want to read it aloud to my younger daughter. The magical elements of the series and good vs evil theme appeals to me.



by Laura Ingalls Wilder
(Little House, Books #1-9)
I read only the first one as a kid, but I loved it! I was so intrigued with the colonial days of simpler times. This is another series that I want to read aloud to my younger daughter.


by J.K. Rowling
(Harry Potter, Books #1-7)
I held off on reading this series for the SOLE REASON that I wanted to share them with my kids! I've read the first three books aloud to them, and we were reading Goblet of Fire but they started to lose interest a bit with the size of the tome. They're older now, so I'll give it another go with my younger daughter. She'll probably want to start the series over, and that's fine with me! I love Harry Potter!

by Erin Hunter
(Warriors, Books #1-6)
I'm reading this series right now to my younger daughter, and I'm loving it! I would have devoured this series when I was a kid.

by Madeleine L'Engle
(Time Quintet, Books #1-5)
With the movie coming out this month, I'm planning to read this series to my younger daughter this year.

by Lemony Snicket
(A Series of Unfortunate Events, Books #1-13)
Now that this series is on Netflix, I really want to read it to my younger daughter but she's worried it will be too scary. Maybe I'll have to pre-read it!

by Rick Riordan
(Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Books #1-5)
I love mythology, so I think this series would be right up my alley!

by Jenny Nimmo
(The Children of the Red King, Books #1-8)
This is another magical fantasy series that I want to read aloud.

by Cornelia Funke
(Inkworld, Books #1-3)
This is another boxset that I've set aside to read to my daughter.

by Lloyd Alexander
(The Chronicles of Prydain, Books #1-5)
This one is more epic fantasy than I usually read, but it's still something that I've always wanted to read. Not sure if my daughter will like it, so I might be reading this one on my own.


You can answer the original topic if you like: What books are you no longer interested in reading? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This weekly meme is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.



It's Louis Riel Day here in Manitoba, so I'm happy to enjoy the day with my kids at home today. We're planning a pajama day!

Something from my dusty bookshelf.

TITLE: Fear Nothing
SERIES: Moonlight Bay, Book #1
AUTHOR: Dean Koontz
PUBLISHER: Bantam Books
PUBLICATION DATE: December 1, 1998 
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 448 pages
GENRE: Horror
ISBN: 0553579754
Christopher Snow is different from all the other residents of Moonlight Bay, different from anyone you've ever met. For Christopher Snow has made his peace with a very rare genetic disorder shared by only one thousand other Americans, a disorder that leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light. His life is filled with the fascinating rituals of one who must embrace the dark. He knows the night as no one else ever will, ever can - the mystery, the beauty, the many terrors, and the eerie, silken rhythms of the night - for it is only at night that he is free. Until the night he witnesses a series of disturbing incidents that sweep him into a violent mystery only he can solve, a mystery that will force him to rise above all fears and confront the many-layered strangeness of Moonlight Bay and its residents.

Not only am I a first generation Canadian, but immigration is my profession. 

PUBLISHER: Caitlin Press
PUBLICATION DATE: February 7, 2017
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 216 pages
GENRE: Nonfiction
ISBN: 9781987915341
Edited by Miriam Matejova, Wherever I Find Myself is a diverse collection of stories about the joys and struggles of immigrant women living in Canada. Often bringing with them the shadow of war and the guilt of leaving, the women in this new anthology expose their emotional pain but also their gratitude for being able to call Canada home. Their stories paint touching and charming portraits of cultural and linguistic misunderstandings, bureaucratic hurdles, attempts to navigate unfamiliar landscapes, and a desire to be accepted despite differences in accent, skin colour, or taste in food. Together they form a mosaic of emotions and world-views that underline the immigrant condition for women.

A yellow dress with ruffles, a kind Grade 1 teacher with a surname that’s difficult to spell, cockroaches in the bathroom, the contempt of strangers, and Whitney Houston on the radio–a Filipino woman recalls her experience as a six-year-old immigrant in a ghetto in Mississauga in the 80s. Browsing through a Polish fashion magazine at a European deli, a woman sees herself in an alternative universe of what her life might have been had she never immigrated to Canada. A same-sex couple moves from Minnesota to Ontario to find refuge for their love, but first they must drive a seventeen-foot truck through a blizzard and make it through the frustrating net of Canadian bureaucracy. In search of her origins, a Jewish woman travels to her birthplace in Passau, Germany. There, among rows of European picturesque houses and foreign tombstones of a Jewish cemetery, she finds no memories, only the shadow of Hitler and the ghosts of her parents.

Through these stories of courage, aloneness, and hope, new and established writers reach out to both immigrants and those whose families long ago ceased to identify with the immigrant label. Through their struggles and, at times, endearingly critical looks at Canada, they remind us that many of our perceived divisions are nothing but artificial creations of mind and that all of us are past, current, or potential immigrants.

I completed a nine-week course with a group of people, which featured DVD Study sessions and a Participant Guide with study questions (homework!) for discussion each week. The book is a lot to digest, and I'm still reading it in chunks.

TITLE: Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life
PUBLISHER: Zondervan
PUBLICATION DATE: November 2, 1992
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 314 pages
GENRE: Nonfiction, Psychology, Self-Help
ISBN: 9780310585909
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

Something from the library. I really enjoy this author, and I find him to be very inspirational!

PUBLISHER: FaithWords
PUBLICATION DATE: October 24, 2017

LENGTH: 304 pages
GENRE: Nonfiction
ISBN: 9781455534326
The same God that leads you through green pastures guides you through the valleys. #1 New York Times bestselling author Joel Osteen shares how God uses the darkness in life for good.

All of us at some time encounter dark places that we don't understand: a loss, a sickness, a divorce, a child who breaks our heart. It's easy to get discouraged, give up on our dreams, and just settle there. We may not realize it, but when we feel buried in dark places, we are being blessed. God is using those experiences to help us grow, because we cannot reach our highest potential if we're standing in the light all the time. With Blessed in the Darkness, you will learn how to draw closer to God and trust Him when life doesn't make sense.

If we will go through the valley trusting, believing, and knowing that God is still in control, then we will come to the table that is already prepared for us, where our cup runs over.

Fourth in the "flawless" (The Reading Café) New York Times best-selling series from the author of Vision in Silver.

For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they're willing to tolerate - both within themselves and within their community....

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn see the new closer companionship as beneficial - both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don't realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others - and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs...
