Publisher's Summary

FBI profiler Jace Valchek's ticket home from the twisted parallel universe where she's been called to duty hinges on the capture of serial killer Aristotle Stoker - and an alliance with a sorcerer known as Asher. The problem: Asher has joined forces with some of the most dangerous creatures Jace has ever encountered. The solution: There is none, without Asher's help.
Jace's goal seems simple enough - to get her man, like always. But just hours after she arrives in Vegas, she's abducted...and she isn't even sure who the real enemy is. Now Jace has to wonder if she's the predator or the prey in a very dangerous game that could change not only her fate, but the world's. Meanwhile, a serial killer is still on the loose. And time has already run out....

Where does Killing Rocks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

eight on a scale of one to ten.


What did you like best about this story?

Charlie, Gally, . I love the world that he has built. I love the alternative mythology.


What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

She is very good at the voices. Although the Mafia guys are a little too cartoony for me...


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

When she shot Charlies


Any additional comments?

I do not understand why some reviews say that this book was somehow out of kilter from the first two. Parallel universe - Check! Evil Sorcerer gunning for Jace - Check! Comic book elements - check! Fighting bad guys - Check! I really enjoyed it and it filled in some blanks. I am not sure how the people who skipped three and didn't feel that they missed anything anything..KNOW that they didn't miss anything...after all...they skipped the book...I just finished four and I think four was off track. After three I couldn't wait until I could get my hands on four. After four I am not sure I want to listen to five. . Charlie wasn't there for most of the book...but that was vital to the storyline and made for some nice suspense. One the other hand - I really didn't like four and thought it was off base. No evil sorcerers. No comic books. No alternative universe travel...

As a side note. I tend to enjoy books with four elements. 1. bad guys/mystery to solve. 2. strong female character 3.Paranormal elements. 4.. Romantic relationship of the main character large focus.

I prefer series that focus on one character and am willing to overlook lack of one of those elements above if the rest are strong enough.

This book is NOT a romance book by any stretch of the imagination. Unless the series has a drastic shift the only "Romance" involves Jace having crushes on various men around her and every once in a while sleeping with one and then wondering if she should have a relationship with them.

The only books with time travel that I have ever enjoyed have been Lynn Kurland books and Diana Gabaldon books. As a general rule I HATE time travel/parallel universe stories.

My favorite books that have similarities to these books are the CE Murphy, Jeanine Frost, Carrie Vaughn, Patricia Briggs books.

Because of the lack of a good romantic element so far I would personally not rank this book as high as these. But there are more books..so I am hopeful....
