Readers around the world have fallen for Kelley Armstrong's intoxicating, sensual and wicked tales of the paranormal, in which demons and witches, werewolves and vampires collide—often hilariously, sometimes violently—with everyday life. In Armstrong's first six novels, Elena, Paige and Eve have had their way with us. Now get ready for Jaime Vegas, t

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 power gets further unraveled, Jamie needs all the help she can get.

This book can be read as a stand alone but readers might be confused by all the names brought up, because
WrensReads Review:

For some reason I feel like I would love being able to talk to ghost. I know "well if you actually had that power you'd hate it" or "well ghost don't exist" blah blah blah.

I'm talking about a theoretical thing here.

Just being able to speak to someone from a different time period would be so enlightening. But then you have the "never ever being alone" and probably perves watching you change... Ugh never mind.

Jaime makes it look livable and cool but also you can see the damage
No Humans Involved
3.5 Stars

Jamie Vegas, renowned professional medium and secret necromancer, agrees to participate in a new reality show aimed at invoking the spirit of Marilyn Monroe. The situation, however, gets out of hand when she is beset by several unruly ghosts desperate to communicate, but oddly unable to do so. In order to help them, Jamie will have to marshal all of her resources, especially that of the alpha-werewolf, Jeremy Danvers, and come to terms with the true nature of her power
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.

So fina

I started this series and loved it but started skipping around not reading the secondary characters' stories. So although I have the book, I listened to the library's audiobook instead. I really enjoyed it. I loved seeing how Jaime Vegas (stupid name by the way) and Jeremy took their relationship to the next level while trying to solve a mystery. Good book. I'm planning on reading listening to the rest of the series.

At last! I feel like I have been waiting for a book for Jeremy and Jaime for ages! It makes me glad that I am reading this series well after they have all been published, waiting a year between installments would be torture. The last thing Jaime expected when she started doing a TV shoot in Los Angeles was to be haunted. Being a necromancer making a living as being a celebrity psychic she knows a thing or two about ghosts; however, these ghosts aren't acting as they should. Determined to get to

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!

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.

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

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

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

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.

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
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

Full review up on the blog:

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
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

"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.
2.5 stars
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.

This is the seventh book in this series and the first one that centres around Jaime, the celebrity necromancer. Jaime has been a side character in several of the previous books, and we know from those books that she has a little bit of a crush on Jeremy, the alpha of the werewolf pack. Although this is the first book to centre Jaime as the main character, it is not what I would call a stand alone. There is far too much back story that has gone on in previous books, in order to appreciate this st ...more

I've never been very invested in Jamie's character, so I went into this book not expecting to be very interested. I was pleasantly surprised. Jamie is sassy and entertaining, and it's interesting to read from the pov of a character in her 40's.

I would have liked to have seen more of a build-up to her and Jeremy's relationship in prior books(other than her crushing on him, and him not noticing) But, I went with it and worked well enough for the story. While it did strike me that Jeremy seemed a b
