Dexter Morgan isn't exactly the kind of man you'd bring home to your mum. At heart he's the perfect gentleman: He has a shy girlfriend and seems to lead a quiet, normal life bordering on the mundane. Despite the fact that he can't stand the sight of blood, he works as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police. But Dexter also has a secret hobby: He is an accomplished serial killer. So far he's killed 36 people and has never been caught because he knows exactly how to hide the evidence.

An epic story of survival at all odds and one of the most anticipated books of the year. In a ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo. Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies. To live, you must follow the rules. But some don't. These are the dangerous ones; these are the people who dare to hope and dream, and who infect others with their optimism.

I tried this book as part of Audible's Easter egg promotion without that sample I would never have come across this book. I would definitely recommend it. In fact I could not wait for part 2 Shift and part 3 Dust to complete the trilogy.

Although it might be thought of as science fiction or fantasy I feel it is about community and what that can mean. It has strong characters that move the story along well and the narrator, Susannah Harker, does an excellent job.

Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.

I am a fan of Tom Clancy and particularly the Jack Ryan novels. I have read this book and the previous Debt of Honor before. I thought I would take a chance on this audio book even though some of the reviews I read were less than complimentary on the reading. I had no problem listening all the way through this book. The reading was not the best, hence the 4 stars, but the story kept me listening.

Sookie's beginning to get used to being surrounded by all varieties of supernatural beings - but even she has her limits. She'd really like to take a while to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get used to her new relationship with the sexy shapeshifter Quinn - but instead, she finds herself attending the long-planned vampire summit, the destination of choice for every undead power player around, as a sort-of human 'Geiger counter' for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of Louisiana.

When I first started reading the Southern Vampire Mysteries I did not realise how addictive they could be.



Johanna Parker does a great job of narration and is now an integral part of the experience for me.



All the books are good and this lives up to that. I am going on to read other Charlaine Harris series.
