A string of murders involving women are making the residents of Los Angeles panic. They're calling the serial killer the "rabid wolf" because he tears his prey open by the throat and leaves behind a maimed body.

Meanwhile, at the Lucidite Institute, the pack is training, under Zephyr's instruction. He knows that soon they'll have to go after the rabid wolf and also rescue other members of the pack. However, they need to work together in order to be successful. They need to operate as one...

The Lucidites are still hard at work tracking to shut down Mika, the big bad scientist that is altering humans for his own world domination quest. After stealing the Lucidites precious technology, Mika and his team are able to replicate dream travelers abilities, as well as other beastly creatures. And for the Lucidites, they desperately need to find a way to reverse the “were” gene for Zephyr and his pack, if they are ever allowed to leave the institute. Can Adelaide and her team of misfits stop Olento Research in time?

Adelaide is struggling with many facets of her life right now, and at the worst possible time ever! She was put in charge of this Level 5 case to find out where Olento Research was and to take them down, all the while still learning how to harness her abilities. Losing her father Ren before she was done with her training has definitely taken a toll on her. The confidence and drive this young girl has is outstanding! She never accepts defeat, never shows weakness, and therefore never shows love or compassion. But there is hope! Lucian, Adelaide's son, and Connor, (one of the were's) are wearing her down. Connor likes her, and she him. Although she tries to fight it, she finds herself opening up to him, sharing intimate moments with's adorable! And Lucian, that little boy is a hoot! The two finally begin to enjoy each others company. Well Adelaide does, I think Lucian always did, lol. Adelaide had a hard time bonding with him from birth, but she has slowly allowed herself to open up to him and show love. The relationships in the story have been more captivating for me than the hunt for Mika and Drake...I love my love stories ;)

As far as the plot of the story, I'm finding myself thinking how hard it is to believe that they would leave Adelaide to run this mission. It seems to me like it has taken longer than missions normally do. I know she is new, and that is my point! Do they not have other, more seasoned Lucidites to help run this mission? And yeah I get Ren liked to run alone but there is no comparison! Adelaide needs experienced people with her, and not just Roxy, the FBI agent who is really getting on my nerves! The series has interesting characters with crucial rolls, but I'm hoping the story doesn't wrap up rushed. I don't need “good luck” closing this deal, I need skill and calculating moves to get this job done. Lets keep our fingers crossed for the conclusion of the story, lets root for that hat trick, hail Mary, or whatever you would like to call it, lol. Go Lucidites!

Narrator Review

Elizabeth Klett graces us with her lovely performance on this crafty series. Elizabeth has this knack for accents. They are so good, and seamless. She moves from young woman English, (UK) to old dude German without skipping a beat! And her normal English (US) tone is so soothing just like a story tellers should be. I literally could listen to her all day! Thanks so much Elizabeth for the great memories! I give Elizabeth 5 Fangs!

Audiobook Review On The Trouble With Twelfth Grave, (Charley Davidson #12)
by Darynda Jones

Rated it

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings--some corporeal, some not so much--as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she's not uncovering a murder. This time she's covering one up...

In this epic episode with Charley Davidson, she has trapped her sexy husband, Reyes, in the God Glass. While desperately trying to release him from the hell dimension, he breaks free and wreaks havoc on our realm. As Charley follows the dead bodies around town, she fears the worst...that Reyes is the one killing innocent humans. Can she get to the bottom of things before she loses Reyes forever?

I love the immediate continuation of this story from the previous book, Eleventh Grave In Moonlight. Although Charley is panicking inside about setting Reyes free from a hell dimension, she appears cool, calm, and collected as she continues onward with her P.I. business. Charley gets wrapped up in a crime family business sort of deal, uncovers the mystery of a missing friend, and guides young Amber, (Cookie's daughter) as she begins her own P.I. business with her deaf boyfriend Quintin. Those two are so adorable it really does hurt sometimes! One of the major “pros” of this series and author is that she has this uncanny ability to give Charley such a great personality, and make light of the grimmest of situations. It's really a fine balance of “flaky” vs. “witty”. Charley is smart, she can see the bigger picture, and doesn't mess around with niceties...straight to the point, can you do this for me or not?! I think that's what makes me laugh the most, her “I don't want to hear your whole life story, just do it!” attitude, lol.

The trouble with this story line was that I figured out the mystery way before it started to unravel. Call me smart, or just call me super paranoid and I watch too much X Files, but yeah I knew what was going to happen...totally. So does that mean the author is slipping? To be honest with you, I certainly hope not! Lets call it a fluke for now. Also, just an FYI she drops a cliff hanger sort of deal on us just like she did with the previous book! I hate cliffhangers, and considering this isn't the first time during this series, it's irritating me now. Those are my “cons” for this book, and not bad considering we are twelve books into an ongoing series.

What I would like to see for this series' future is this, keep me on my toes! Now is the time in a series when it can fall flat and repetitive, so go for the gusto! WOW me! Pull a psycho bitch move on me that I never saw coming! I LOVE Charley's story and I want to continue enjoying every adventure, I really do! As long as new books keeps coming about Charley, I'm there...but whether or not I can continue to recommend them is another story.

Narrator Review

Lorelei King, as I live and breath.  Lorelei has been with this gig since the very beginning of Charley's journey.  I LOVE HER!  The tone of her voice, the timing of her sarcasm, is excellent!  She just gets Charley, and embodies her essence, I am so fan girling over her!  I know this narrator so well that as soon as she goes into another character I know exactly whom is speaking!  I whole heartedly give Lorelei 5 Fangs!  Great job Lorelei, and keep up the fantastic work that you do.
