Paranormal Romance

Blood and Deceit by Laura Greenwood is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Jess Combs. This book is a stand-alone that is set in the Paranormal Council Universe.

I just love Laura’s books! They always leave me begging for more. I can’t wait to read more of her books around the Paranormal Council Universe.

Jess did a great job on the narration. I liked that she used different voice/tones for each character. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.

The Necromancer & The Vampire

This was a great standalone story set in the Paranormal Council Universe! After the necromancer council dissolved, Tabitha is out of a job and desperate for money, but no one will hire a necromancer the legal way. She’s also having trouble finding any information on her brother and the death of her father after her mother’s death. She starts looking for a job and answers in the black market, but finds herself mixed up with a vampire of The High Council, who also happens to be her mate, since the job was a set up and the result of black magic going wrong. What’s the best way to start your life with your fated mate? With lies, deceit, and a hefty price for your head. I enjoyed this new mystery that Laura has created and watching Tabitha and Rick’s relationship grow. This book was filled with romance, mystery, suspense, and great characters within an amazing world!
Jess did an amazing job with this narration! I loved the different voices that she gave each character and the amount of emotion and suspense she put into her performance to bring it to life.

GREAT LISTEN!!!

Tabitha is doing some shady things that could get her in a lot of trouble if she’s not careful. She finds an unlikely ally, and they find themselves in tricky circumstances time and again. The story just keeps moving, making you not want to put the book down. The author has a good way of describing scenes and suspense, making you feel like you are right there seeing it with the people involved and feeling with their feeling. Along with the many twists and turns of the plot, a true romance developed between the hero and heroine, and they do have great chemistry. It was a wild, I recommend this one it was a fun listen. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Extremely good

I found this audiobook to be extremely good. It had a way of drawing me in so that I felt like I was there with the characters. It has a lot of twists and turns that will keep you wanting more. The narrator does a wonderful job of voicing each character and bring them to life.

Cool Ideas. Entertaining. Good Narration.

Cool supernatural world with unique ideas. I enjoyed the sort of forbidden connection between Tabitha and Rick. Tabitha is a necromancer and Rick is a vampire. The necromancers don't really have a good reputation in the supernatural world, so Tabitha is having to put up with some preconceived notions. Someone is out to get Tabitha, so she needs to solve the mystery. Luckily, she has a bit of help. I just listened to The Necromancer's Prey; which helped me understand a bit more about what was going on in the necromancer world, but this worked as a standalone. This is a fairly quick read, so the depth isn't quite there, but the story was entertaining all the way through. I listened to the audio and I'd recommend it. The narrator did a good job. Looking forward to checking out more from Greenwood!

Narration very good

Tabitha is searching for answers about her brother; his well-being, his whereabouts. Having exhausted all legal avenues, she has turned to the black market. When an exchange of life force-black market magic goes wrong, she finds herself entangled with a member of the High Council who also happens to be her mate. When Tabitha finally finds the answers she was searching for it could mean death to her and her new mate, change the balance of power in necromancer society, and endanger the whole paranormal universe.

This was not my favorite from the Paranormal Council series. I never connected with the characters or with their relationship and I was frustrated at times by their decisions. I'm also frustrated by the continuing discrimination of the High Council towards necromancers. It seems that their type of magic was originally singled out as "too different, too dangerous" and the initial discrimination led to unsavory groups gaining power within the fringe group. Time for fresh starts!

I did enjoy the narration more than the story. Jess Combs did a wonderful job.

Great read!

I highly recommend this book. Well plotted and laid out. While listening with my eyes closed I could picture everything that was going on. Between the story line and the narrators voice it was a beautiful blend. I paranormal thriller I didn’t see the end coming!

Betrayal and Loyalty

I love the fact that we get to jump back into the Paranormal Council world with this new book. While this book is in the Paranormal Council world it is a standalone book. There are plenty of twist, turns, deadly secrets and unexpected love wrapped up in this great book
