After reading and enjoying the Veil, I decided it was time to begin the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill. Some Girls Bite is first in the series and I chose audio format with Cynthia Holloway as the narrator. Some Girls Bite was a solid start to the series. Light, action-packed and filled with humor.
I have been in a bit of a reading slump and decided to pick up a book I have had in my tbr pile forever. Visions by Kelley Armstrong the second book in the Cainsville series was exactly what I was craving and once again, Armstrong delivered. It only reaffirmed my love for this series and the strange town of Cainsville.
Owl and the City of Angels by Kristi Charish is the second book in the Adventures of Owl. I just learned that these will also be available at Audible and yep, I intend to check them out. Owl and the City of Angels has our thief extraordinaire, Owl and Captain traveling the globe and escaping trouble. Once again I slipped into the world and had a blast reading about her adventures.
Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead is the third book in the Georgina Kincaid series. This urban fantasy series features Georgina a succubus and her motley crew of friends ranging from angels to humans. Filled with snark and a topsy-turvy romance each case features a mystery that Georgina finds herself in the middle of make this an exciting series.
Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews is the eighth book in the Kate Daniels series. This is a series where the audio version is my preferred format in part because of Renée Raudman and her stellar performance. Admittedly, I was slightly worried after the events of Magic Breaks, but I should have known the Andrews had a plan. Intense and action-packed Kate and Curran face new challenges and old enemies giving listeners one heck of a ride.
