This is my first listen from this author, and one of my first listens in the mystery genre. I have to say Josh Lanyon has me hooked! The storyline was captivating, but did not quite keep me on the edge of my seat. The characters were very likeable and realistic, and even though I was able to guess the culprit by the middle of the book, his motivation was not revealed until much later.
Overall, it is an excellent listen. Chris Patton is an above average narrator, neither distracting or annoying, and really added something special to the whole experience.
One huge advantage (in my opinion) to other gay novels I have listened to is that the sex scenes in Fatal Shadows are more tasteful and less graphic. They are still there, and they are still hot, but they are fairly short, so they don't distract the reader from the storyline.
Josh Lanyon really outdid himself this time. This book is simply great. The story was so compelling I listened to the whole thing in one day! The book made a perfect transition from Fatal Shadows. If you haven't listened to Fatal Shadows yet, I recommend buying both and listening to them in order.
I loved this book! After reading almost all of Andrew Grey's "Love Means..." series, which all follow a similar storyline and the same setting, it is a refreshing change. The characters are likeable and the story is easy to follow. I can't wait to listen again!
Completely amazing! After listening, it’s easy to see why this book won awards. And, Jack LeFleure does a fantastic job narrating – I wish he’d read every book from now till the end of time! I loved it so much I visited the author’s website looking for other Jasak/Aleron stories – but, sadly, there aren’t any others as this is the first book (in what I hope will become a lengthy series). Forget the phobe reviews here and download – you won’t be sorry!
