First Thought when Finished: Fair Game by Patricia Briggs was my favorite in the series so far!
Quick Thoughts:It was a great mix of mystery, romance (a totally inappropriate "bow chica bow bow" moment that was immediately called out by Anna so that made it OK), and momentum forward in the overall storyline. All around FANTASTIC! I didn't even knock off for that "wait where is the next one" ending.
Narrated By Holter Graham / Length: 9 hrs and 57 mins
Holter pretty much nails it again! I really loved his narration, pacing, and emotion. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing Charles voice!
Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! Reviews
I would have liked it overall but so much talk of torture and rape left me disappointed. I will have to reconsider future purchases especially after the author's inclusion of rape in the Mercy Thompson series.
being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.
Anna and Charles are once again tossed into circumstances they did not expect. As Anna works to save Charles from falling into the monster he sees himself....they both end up working to find the middle ground that will allow Charles to maintain his humanity.
once again, Anna saves Charles through the wit and courage that life has given her. Charles ends up finding a small balence in himself while others around him deal with loss and tradgedy. definitely a great read
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
How Anna took the lead it was incredible...she rocks!!!
Charles in this one...even thought I love Anna too!
he is just a great narrator....with narration, you either have it tor you dont...and he does!!!
Oh yes...I did a lot of both...this book will tough you and make you giggle like a school girl also...listen and find out!!
I called it jokingly in the beginning who the bad guys was...and by the time we got to that part, I was shocked..it was a wonderful story getting there...this one was more about Charles, then Anna...and I liked that...I like Charles.he is Brave and a very kind man...His love for Anna is so wonderful and I know they are stronger than ever after this adventure!! 2 thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
The experience of Charles solving the problem to find out who is trying to destroy the adhesiveness of the pack.
Charles who idolizes his wife, his mate, his Anna!
When Anna acted as backup for Charles.
Patricia Briggs is one of my all time favorite authors and this story was exceptional. Adding Holter Graham's narration to it was a delicious coating of frosting on a scrumptious dessert. This is a treat worth savoring!
I wish it addressed some of the feminist implications brought up by this story world's rules.
It was exiting and action packed.
The beginning vignette that was almost a character study of a new character was a great scene!
Yes, Holter Graham is one of the best readers out there.
Come for the urban fantasy, stay for Holter Graham's narration.
The relationship between Charles & Anna was great! I love story lines with alpha men who know how to treat their women.
The narrator really got into the story. I felt like I was there.
The relationship between the characters was really well written.
