I just finished the entire series and wish there were more books in it. It was such a great blend of everyday life and a totally different mystical world. I can't believe there are not more reviews on this series and that you Mary Calme fans haven't read it. I don't typically like blood and gore and there was enough action in this to make it riveting but not so much as to be disturbing. The series was awesome. The narrator for the first book was great. I didn't like the narrator of the 2nd and 3rd nearly as well. The last book's narrator was OK. I hope you will give it try. I listen to books for distraction and don't like very deep and intense. This series was perfect.
The Love that Logan has for Jin
When Jin took Logan's place in the pit
I like how he had different voices for each character
Jin and Logan Duh...
reading it make me smile...
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I loved this book. Maybe b/c of Crisden's narration, but I really like Calmes as well. Crisden really brings out the cocky attitude of Calmes characters. I loved the whole paranormal shifter wold but I was a little nervous about the male/male love interest. But whatever to that! I love both of my ALPHA males...
This book was just great and Jin was just a great great character. He felt so real. I felt so sad for him about his family but now he belongs to Logan and YESSS to that... Right!!
I like all of the books by Mary Calmes and this one in no exception. My only complaint is about the narrator. He voiced the main character fine but several of the other secondary characters sounded like Muppets. I found the strange voices distracting and annoying. I'll never purchase an audio-book featuring this narrator again.
Probably. . . Usually listen more than once
When Jin finally accepted his destiny
Yes. . . He's great.
WHEN DESTINY CALLS . . . LISTEN
This book was a pleasant surprised. I was expecting the"were pack" thread to be a dressing to a m-m romance but it wasn't so. Calmes sensei actually has built a pretty solid world about were panthers in this book. To be honest, I think her were panther mythology and culture are much better imagined than some of the eroticas out there disguised as urban fantasies. And in that sense, if the reader is not familiar with weres and packs and what not in UF genre, one might get lost. Fortunately for me I am well versed in that kind of literature and had no problem understanding the were panther myth.
This could have been just a story of hot guys destined to mate meet, have sex and happily ever after. It isn't. It is also about accepting and being accepted who you are and fighting to be yourself. I'm extremely happy to find that there is actually an sequel
As for the reader...there is one voice that sounded like Grover from Sesame Street that was annoying but for the main couple I did not have any problem.
Oh in addition the name of the main character is Jin as in Jinnai a Japanese name(mother is Japanese) which is a nice bonus
I really liked this book to my suprise! I have a tendency toward books 100 years old or older, so hearing a modern novel was fun. I just finished Maurice, and gay romance stories have certainly got hotter! I loved Maurice as it is so romantic, but this book is romantic and hot all at the same time. Add paranormal werepanthers and you have a good story. I hope she makes a sequel! I also wished lesbian novels were more fun, I am a gay women and we need stories like this one too!!!
! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
It's a shame his whole family and tribe whom he loved with his whole heart and they loved him until the day he told them he was "GAY and a Reah!" so much hate so much pain so scared, only one stay true when true love gasp his heart DRAMA DRAMA and some fun too and definitely some hot hot sexual scenes. I DEFINITELY WILL BE READING THE OTHER BOOKS
I am an avid audio book listener. I have over 340 in my library and re-listen to them until I know my favorites by heart.
I love gay love stories. This one is one of the best. It is also the second I have purchased from this author. I have listened to it over 10 times already. As there are not a huge selection of gay themed romance, it is well worth your purchase. The story progresses easily and there aren't any stilted subplots. The reader's voice is very nice and easy to understand. Some of the characters have funny or off sounding voices, but it's OK as they are minor characters and it's not distracting. This is not fine literature, it IS a nice story that has hot love scenes and moves along. It has quickly become one of my favorites.
