Publisher's Summary

Reeling from her losses and trying to regroup, the Great White Shark of psychic investigation turns her focus on self-improvement, though her remaining friends call it self-flagellation. Marnie is determined to move forward at maximum warp, trauma be damned. A prospective client named Beau Boudreaux shows up in her office with a peanut butter addiction and a plea for Marnie to protect him from his ex-girlfriend: Pestilence, the First Horseman of the Apocalypse. His story is hard to swallow, but heading off Armageddon seems like a spiffy distraction. 

That is, until the Blights descend, and Marnie realises that all her nightmares are about to come true. Running with a lighter crew and a busted heart, can Marnie get her act together and solve the riddle of Beau Boudreaux before the End Times come a'knockin'? Or will the Blightmare become her new reality?

There Is Hope for the Future!

I have to say that AJ Aalto managed to surprise me and revive my love for her as an author. I was devastated by what happened at the end of Wrath & Bones. I wasn't sure I even wanted to read Blightmare. Howevef, I am so glad I did! The author ripped my heart out in the last book and she healed it with this one. It takes a very talented writer to make you go from loving her to hating her to loving her again. I've been on quite the emotional journey over these last two books. And, may I say, the ride has been worth every moment spent on it. I was so angry when I reviewed Wrath & Bones that I gave away the ending. Now, I truly regret doing that. Lesson learned. I have no idea how AJ Aalto is going to pull off the future she hinted at in the end of Blightmare. I look forward to continuing the journey to find out! Amy McFadden once again took me on an emotional rollercoaster with her narration. actually, it's even more than that. It's an Oscar worthy performance. I cried, laughed, hoped, wondered... You name the emotion, I probably felt it. I look forward to her next performance in the next Marnie Baranuik book.

Disappointing?

Way too much of this book is just a Marine pity party. Like I totally get it, but a grieving Marnie is not my idea if a fun read. It was to be expected, but it got old real fast and overstayed its welcome. Genuinely considered skipping this one; it just felt like such a huge waste of time.

This is more of a personal gripe however. I can definitely see people enjoying the book. After all, it's more or less still the same Marnie we know and love. Kinda. I really hope Marnie is back to being Marnie for the next book cus this was really boring.

I feel bad saying this because I really like the author and I understand why much of this was needed but wow was it boring. Still giving it full stars as again, just a personal gripe. It's still a decent book as usual.

it's ok...I guess.

This was not the best book of the series, I feel a little let down. I thought the begining was kind of slow and I dont ike the direction the book is taking. "SPOILER"
coming beware......
I am not a fan of shapeshifter stories. So I don't know if I will continue past this book. The story is interesting so if your a shapeshifter fan it may be for you moving forward.

Far too predictable!

Saw that ending from the very beginning. The biggest problem with this book is there is one basic theme and Aalto beats that drum over and over like the proverbial old dead horse. Yes, some little side stories that were good but you were always aware that the big ending was coming closer and closer. The very fact that Marnie is boo hoo hoo-ing so constantly, page after page after page has to say something else, yeah? I wish it (no spoilers here but I am amazed everyone did NOT get IT sooner) had been brought out earlier in the book and not CONSTANTLY hinted at, over and over and freeking over. Shame as most Aalto books are far more complex and interesting. I ended up getting an epub from the library to speed read to the end.

Hilarious, witty, great Narration.

I really can't get enough Marnie! The books are written really well The characters are well developed, pretty awesome. And the narrator nails the main character everytime. the story continues to grow but still has closure.

I enjoyed this series

I really enjoyed seeing Marnie grow in this series. She was timid in the first book but got more and more confident in each new book. The day sitter relationship is new and interesting. I haven’t encountered it in any similar genre books. Harry is simultaneously charming and frustrating. I adore her little brother Wes. I am not fond of how Harry is constantly insulting Marnie. But it is obvious he cares for her.

The problem with the series is book 5 leaves the story dangling and a new book doesn’t seem to be coming soon. I lose interest returning to a series if too much time accumulates between books.

Best ever. More please.

Hopefully without a spoiler, there will be many more books in marines files. I will definitely find out. Living again the great storylines, the laughs and the tears, there must be more to cme.

Love, love, love these books.

If you haven't already read these books, then your missing out.
I've read & listened to all of them now and I can't wait for the next.
These books have had me laughing out load, crying and shouting. The story telling captures you completely.

Love this series

Well written. Narrating is good and interesting take on vamps and supernaturals. Just enough drama, action and romance without it being over the top or PG.

Excellent Series

Have listened to this series twice now - I cant exclaim enough how much I have enjoyed these books & can’t wait for the next in the series.
The narrator is excellent- to me she is Marnie and the voice range she has is amazing. I can’t recommend this series enough.
