Summary

Evangeline Stone, a rogue bounty hunter, never asked for a world divided between darkness and light...or the power to die and live again in someone else's borrowed body. After a murder plot meant to take her out leaves an entire race of shapeshifters nearly extinct, Evy is gnawed by guilt. So when one of the few survivors of the slaughter enlists her aid, she feels duty-bound to help---even though protecting a frail, pregnant shifter is the last thing Evy needs, especially with the world going to hell around her. Amid weres, Halfies, gremlins, vamps---and increasingly outgunned humans---a war for supremacy is brewing. With shifters demanding justice, her superiors desperate to control her, and an assassin on her trail, Evy discovers a horrifying conspiracy. And she may be the only person in the world who can stop it---unless, of course, her own side gets her first.

Love this series

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Love stories with kick ass chicks.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan, Stacia Kane, Kelly Medding and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading

Story interesting-narrator a little flat

The story is entertaining but the narrator is often flat making it a bit difficult to invest in the story.

The Dead live on

Where does As Lie the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among my top 10 book series.....I've truly enjoyed the storyline, heroine and characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of As Lie the Dead?

Evie's moment on why she's afraid to love.

What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

Xe's performance brings Evie's character to life and the other characters' voices are believable. Her males sound like males, etc.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, there were actually a couple of moments that moved me, the part where Leo realized that Alex is dead and Evie realizing why she was afraid to love were pivotal to me.

Any additional comments?

I'm enjoying the series.....I hope that the same narrator continues to narrate all the books. Recently, completed another series and one of the books had a different narrator and I kept thinking that there was something amiss.
