rambunctiously soft spoken.
I found myself screaming at the very skilled narrator just get on with it ,this ramble someone decided to make into a novel just made me angry hoping I could get past the fact that the author decided it would be a great Idea to have the panther our lead turns into to talk in first person though out the hole novel one or twice I could have forgiven but ARRRRRGGGGHHHHH ,It dragged and I was begging to get to the end ,maybe if your a cat person this will do it for you but I'll be giving the rest off the series a miss.
I am not a professor of literature like previous reviewers make the impression of, i have not read other books/series by this author for comparison so keep that in mind as you read my review. A review i read on amazon (i like to use other sites to get broader opinions) compared this book to that of Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series. I would NOT go that far, but it wasnt bad. I gave it three stars (and not higher) for two reasons. First, it did take me 3 hours of listening to get into the book. This was mostly for the second reason though- I really disliked the dialog when Jane was in her other "forms". So much so that i skipped one chapter entirely because it was bugging me so much. Eventually however you get sucked into the the plot enough that those few chapters are bearable. Other than that, i found the story and characters interesting and well developed. I will probably try the next in the series at some point but as it is, i do not regret the credit spent.
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Yes, Enjoyed it very much
The main character, Jane Yellowrock, is of Indian origin and has the power to change into different creatures
She performed all the characters quite well
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher
Couldn't get past second chapter. I would not recommend it. I'm not sure if it was the narration or the writting but I tried to listen to it and I kept falling asleep, which normally does not happen.
Fun story great performance. The only thing I don't really like is when Jane is in panther form she speaks in choppy unformed sentences, which is how the panther thinks in pictures not words. I do think that takes away from the story, at least for me.
I like this story, however I won't be getting anymore of the series since it apparently starts getting explicit in the next book. This story doesn't need sex to help listener enjoy the characters and the world they live in.
I will probably try the next book in the series, but it was a close call
Good ending, nice wrap up finally...a little anti-climactic
I might go see this if it was a movie but it would be hard to imagine her "beast:s" perspective on film...
This book had a good overall story but her very long winded descriptions of "Beasts" thoughts was tiresome to me. It was kinda long and wordy too. I was wishing she would get on with the action and story. I will probably try the next book in the series to see if it gets better. I bought this because it is in my favorite type of books and so many had recommended it; but the jury is still out for me on this series.....
I would recommend this to anyone who likes vampires and a fresh look at the concept.
I thought the characters were interesting. They draw you into the story.
Khristine Hvam did a great job of changing voices without taking away from the story itself, very smooth and entertaining.
I didn't want this book to end but was dying to see how it would end, it did not disappoint.
Happy to have a new author to add to my favorites!
Book was listed under ROMANCE, but there was none to be seen. Story was interesting if a bit muddled here n there.
