I'm so obsessed with this series right now. I can't put it down, not even for just one second. I have tons of things to do and I just keep postponing them so I can keep reading it.

In this installment we get to (FINALLY) read about Jaime and Jeremy. I had been dying to read this book as everybody kept telling me it was the best in the series so far and I just needed to get to it fast. Now I only can say that I am devastated I gt through it so fat, but it was so good that I just could not control

This is the seventh in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series, and this time we get to experience the action through Jamie Vegas' eyes.
While filming for a tv show, Jamie finds out that the garden of the house were the filming takes place seems to be inhabitated by child ghosts. As the theory of human sacrifice for magical development gets further unraveled, Jamie needs all the help she can get.

We see a lot different characters from Armstrong's world: Paige, Lucas, Savannah, Eve, Kristof, Hop

I can talk to dead people.

Jaime Vegas is a true necromancer. She can raise the dead if she has to. She can see and talk to ghosts. Only problem is, she can’t control seeing them. Constantly, everywhere, they see her, she pretends not to see them. Sure, she can deliver a message for them, but she can’t figure out why they’re dead, who killed them, what killed them, and would prefer not to even try. Now part of the interracial council, Jaime gives her feedback when it’s needed and wanted. However,

I plunged into this book with ridiculously high expectations and, for once, they all were met, leaving me utterly satisfied, staring at the last sentence with a huge grin on my face. No Humans Involved is a fantastic read with engaging plot, cruel villain, fast pace, butt-kicking action, hilarious dialogue, amazing romance and lovable characters.

First of all, there's Jaime and Jeremy. Really, do I even need to say more? They've had my heart since that balcony scene in Paige's book and I've someh

I've been waiting for Jamie's story ever since Industrial Magic. It's hard for me to say why exactly, but I'm pretty sure that it has something to do with the embarrassing crush she has on werewolf alpha, Jeremy. I mean, you expect crushes from young, inexperienced heroines, but Jamie is 44 years-old. She is sexy and she is secure in her own skin... except when it comes to Jeremy. In his presence, she turns into an adorable fool, and it is completely impossible for me not to root for her.

Pas grand chose à dire sinon que c'est du Kelley Armstrong. Qu'il n'y a rien de nouveau sous le soleil, mais qu'au moins, le niveau reste le même...
Il est parfois agréable de pouvoir de fier à une série d'urban... On sait ce que l'on attend et l'on sait ce que l'on lira... Pas de mauvaise surprise... Une lecture "sécurité quoi!"
Bref j'ai aimé que l'histoire s'intéresse à J'aime et Jeremy et la trame de fond tient la route.
Un bon moment!

Out of all the supernatural beings - vampires, werewolves, demons etc. - necromancers are my thing! I've always been really intrigued by ghosts and I'm not convinced they aren't real, so naturally, necromancers are very interesting to me. I really enjoyed this book.

In this 7th novel in the Women of the Otherworld series, we follow Jamie Vegas trying to free ghosts trapped between worlds. I loved Jamie's story and abilities, and of course her relationship with Jeremy is definitely hot. I think t

My Summary: Jamie's always known where she wanted to go with her career, and when she gets invited to co-star on a spiritualist reality TV show, she knows she's almost there - getting her own show. Along with three other spiritualists (none of whom actually have any real powers), Jamie is supposed to summon the spirit of Marilyn Monroe and uncover the truth behind her untimely death.

But things don't go as planned. Almost as soon as Jamie unpacks her things, she realizes there is something 'off'

I am so happy to have read Jeremy's book. Okay, so it's Jaime's book, but it's Jeremy's book, too. With her pining after him for four years, it was about time something happened. I knew he wasn't dense and I knew he cared, but he had his reasons for holding back. Being Pack Alpha has a lot that comes with it and being involved with him could be dangerous should other werewolves outside of the Pack decide to exploit that. Luckily, they both decided to move forward despite the potential risks. The ...more

I can't help but second guess myself every time I re-read a book. I somehow feel like I'm playing favourites and ignoring all of the other novels out there that I have yet to read once, let alone twice. Then I read the opening chapters of one of Kelley Armstrong's books and think "screw the other books". There's a reason why she's my favourite author and No Humans Involved reinforces that yet again. I loved watching Jeremy, the infallible alpha, stumble all over himself l

Recommends it for: Everyone!
This is one of my favourites of the series and the first book in the series with Jaime (a necromancer) as narrator. It's also the first book where Jeremy isn't forced to stay on the sidelines out of the main action because of his status as Alpha. I also love this book cause it's the one that Jaime and Jeremy get together as a couple in as well as the fact that through Jaime we get glimpses of Jeremy that we don't get with Clay and Elena, mostly because he can let his guard down a little with Jai ...more

Shelves: 2010, urban-fantasy
I am not one of those Armstrong fans who only read Women of the Otherworld series for the werewolves. I enjoy these books for the world-building and mysteries. And thankfully, in this regard, No Humans Involved is a much better book than its fillerifick/wish fulfillment predecessor - Broken.

At the center of the story is Jaime Vegas, a necromancer originally introduced in Dime Store Magic and who's been a reoccurring secondary character ever since. Jaime is in LA and participating in filming of

NO HUMANS INVOLVED (Women of the Otherworld #7) by Kelley Armstrong

NO HUMANS INVOLVED is the 7th full length novel in Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. Featuring Jaime Vegas and Alpha leader Jeremy Danvers, No Humans Involved will see Jaime (finally) get her man or wolf, and we will see a side of Jeremy that we never knew existed.

As a television personality renowned for her ability to ‘speak to the dead’ necromancer Jaime Vegas was invited to participate in a live televised tapi

I'll be honest, I was never interested in Jaime Vegas as a character, however, I had hopes that she would win me over once she was able to stand on her own two feet. She even had Jeremy to aid her. Sadly, she only proved herself more insufferable than I initially thought.

The plot itself wasn't so bad, it could have even been eerily compelling, but Jaime's lack of power was a hindrance. Having read The Summoning prior to No Humans Involved, I had the benefit of being introduced to an incredibly p

Yes! Finally! After 4 years Jeremy and Jaime got together! And to make up for the all the lost time they did it with a



Who knew Mr.Cool and Under Control Jeremy had such a wild sexy side.



I gotta hand it to Armstrong, she created a perfect chemistry between those two, it was a pleasure to read and definitely worth the wait. I was glad to learn more about Jeremy, he was always a bit of a mystery and Jamie is just the kind of a woman to break his quiet reserve. She was always one of my favorite

This was much better than Bitten. The story moved along much more smoothly without all the stupid decisions.
I really don't have anything to say about it. It was okay. I don't think I'll really recall anything about it in a couple of months, though.

"No Humans Involved", but Kelley Armstrong, is a thrilling, terrifying, and unique mystery set around her supernatural characters.
I think that this book is the most frightening of all of them - it starts out not with one of her normal cast of supernaturals, but with a human teenager put in a nightmarish situation, and it gets scarier from there.
This book centers around Jamie Vegas, a necromancer (someone who can see and talk with the dead), and she has to solve a mystery while trying to remai

Although I found this book a bit longer than it needed to be, I did enjoy it. Two of my most favorite characters in the series so far were in this book, Jeremy and Jaime. I love the whole necromancer thing and find it fascinating when Jaime is interacting with "ghosts", especially when there was whispering and patting going on! The two main players in the story are very well suited and the build up was engrossing.
Jessica (Rabid Reads)
I thought an Otherworld story with Jaime (a real necromancer) working with fake celebrity spiritualists/necromancers would be fun. And that part of it was. The part that focused on her and Jeremy finally getting their stuff together was also fun.

Ritual sacrifice of children <-----NOT fun.

Seriously. Quit killing kids already. It's tiresome.
Kami
Another nice read from Kelley Armstrong.

I liked seeing more into Jamie's character. She is an interesting character & I was curious to see more into her story. I love all of the werewolves so Jeremy in this story made it all the more better for me. Through the series you see Jamie & Jeremy's friendship become closer & understand that Jamie wants more from Jeremy. You also see her unsure of what Jeremy would want with her if anything at all beyond the friendship that already exists.

As always, reading a sequel to books in a series always leaves me feeling some level of apprehension. Will it measure up to how I felt about the past six books? Yes. Yes, it really did.



The first worry I had was after I read the blurb of the book and found it's narrated by necromancer Jaime. I love her character but I hadn't gone so far as to think she would be the main focus of one of the books in the series. I found myself real

No Human’s Involved – Women of the Otherworld #7

For a lot of reasons this was my favourite instalment of the series. I think part of it is that a lot of the couple in these books, are just kinda ‘wham’ then they’re together. I will be honest when saying that while I love the Otherworld series, there are a few couples that bored me to tears simply because there was no angst, no build up, no nothing. Jaime and Jeremy have quite a bit of build up over several books which I think made all the differ

No Humans Involved is the seventh book in the Women of the Otherworld series, and the books are still as strong as ever. This one features the oldest protagonist so far, Jaime. Jaime is a spiritualist, only her producers know she's actually the real deal, and that she's a necromancer on top of that as well.

The story roughly follows two story lines; the one in which Jaime is co-starring in a TV show, and the "supernatural mystery" storyline. In the backyard of the house they're shooting the show

I like all of Kelley Armstrong’s books about Women of the Otherworld. This story is about Jamie Vegas the necromancer. She’s in the house with two other supposedly necro’s too and they are there to have various séances about famous people who were murdered leading up to Marilyn Monroe. While there she encounters ghosts but is unable to communicate with them and vice versa. She later finds out that the ghost to which she has been unsuccessful in communicating with are child ghosts and with the he ...more

What I really liked about this book (besides, um, EVERYTHING) was how much was focused on Jaime coming to terms with herself, her place in the supernatural community, and her own powers. I think anyone who spent enough time around Elena, Paige, Savannah, and even Cassandra would have their hangups about their usefulness and what they can really add to any kind of investigation, and just Ja

I've read most, if not all (it's hard to distinguish them from each other, after the first few) of Armstrong's "Women of the Otherworld" series. The series began by following Elena, a tough, conflicted woman who is also the only female to ever survive being made into a werewolf. Since then, Armstrong has written numerous witches, werewolves, vampires, half-demons, warlocks, necromancers, etc. All of her many characters get at least a chapter in this book, which is supposedly about Jaime Vegas, w ...more

Review

This was one of the books I didn't review after but WHILE reading it.
So, here it comes. The before and the after:

Before.


I started the first.. like three pages, then put the book down and read the blurb. Yes, I know I should have done that before, but I thought this was the book narrated by Hope (not that till now the real narrator would have been 'introduced'). Anyway, so this is the necro's book?

Kind of awkward. I mean.. she's crushing on Jer and he's..

Jaime Vegas, who we originally met in Industrial Magic, is the narrator for this book in the Women of the Otherworld series. Jaime is a necromancer which means that she can communicate with the dead. In some books, like Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series, a necromancer doesn’t talk to ghosts, she raises and controls the dead. Hamilton’s Anita Blake is that sort of necromancer. Jaime CAN raise the dead but it’s not something she does routinely. In fact, though she knows it’s possible, it’s ...more

I had just finished my review when it got eaten (again.) *sigh*

I've read all of Kelley Armstrong's 'Women of the Otherworld' series of novels, and enjoyed all of them, but I have to say I think this is her weakest offering. The things I have loved about them - the sense of danger, the strong romantic and sexual undertones of the relationships between the first-person female lead and the romantic interest, the fantasy elements - just weren't as strong in this novel. Her lead wasn't as sassy. It's

A fantastic addition to the series. Jamie Vegas necromancer finds herself on the set where something bad, very bad has happened and what was left behind is horrific. She is tied up in something dangerous and deadly and has to call in her friends for help. One of them, Jeremy Danvers: Werewolf and Pack Alpha come bearing more than just help. There may finally be some romance in the air for these two. Okay there is and it's a wonderful process, slow and sexy. They work together with some help to h ...more

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers' dismay. All efforts to make her produce "normal" stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked a
