Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is . . . but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.

Wow the Sookie Stackhouse series is excellent, all the books on the Audible site, I consumed within a week, every waking moment, was spent enthralled and delighted by the characters, so well thought out by Charlaine Harris. My anticipation for the tenth book is palpable.

The harsh reality of living during the Catholic, Protestant rivalry in Ireland! A sad story which was quite depressing, I really had to make myself listen to this and it left me feeling hollow.

It was the most radical human-breeding experiment in American history, and no one knew how it turned out. The Repository for Germinal Choice, nicknamed the Nobel Prize sperm bank, opened to notorious fanfare in 1980, and for two decades, women flocked to it from all over the country to choose a sperm donor from its roster of Nobel-laureate scientists, mathematical prodigies, successful businessmen, and star athletes.

Tristan Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester, but she is as distant as the star they see fall from the sky one evening. For the prize of Victoria's hand, Tristan vows to retrieve the star for his beloved. It is an oath that sends the lovelorn swain over the town's ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining.
