This is a great series and fun to listen to. Enjoyed this book the mostest. Starting next book today and will keep u posted. Narrator is awesome
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Maybe....but given that I already know the ending now it would be as exciting as this first listen.
I don't think there is an "equal" per se... Black moon has a variety of paranormals and they come with extra gifts...Ultimately I would say it's more similar to good vs. evil type books.
She one of my really good narrators on audible thus far...
OK I really like the shifter/paranormal world Tyler has created in the first 2 books. This book got pretty dark for my taste. I felt like the male lead, Kalen, was strong one minute and a total weakling the next. All the waffling back and forth made it hard to believe he really had the strength to overcome the uber bad guy. And I thought Mackenzie, his mate, was a bit clueless in understanding how important the amulet necklace was for Kalen's protection. I also wasn't a fan of how the uber bad guy could talk to Kalen in his head one minute, but when the plot depended on keeping info secret Kalen could suddenly block him.
I also found it hard to believe the scene of the big battle when "hundreds" of the bat-like sluaugh (sp?) attack just a few shifters and no one except the bad guys dies. Overall this story didn't hold together as well for me as the first two, but I like the series well enough to continue. The next book (#4) has some mixed reviews but #5 looks like a winner.
I've always liked to read. But I've become addicted to Audible and average 5 or 6 books a week. But everybody has at least one vice right?
This series surprised me. Id been searching for a new one to read and enjoyed each book up to this one. The first two while good stories didn't get to me like this one did. Callen tugs at your heart as you empathize with a young guy who's been severely mistreated abused and abandoned by everyone he's ever known except a grandmother.
There were a few times during the story when I actually wasn't sure he'd be able to overcome the evil trying to corrupt him and subvert him. A few times it was uncomfortable to even read because you could see him making such stupid choices. You wanted to yell at him and tell him to wake up and see what he was doing and look at the consequences of his actions. It made me so mad at one point I almost stopped reading.
I'm glad I didn't. Callen was finally able to over come his struggle and in the end finds what he's been wanting and searching for. A family and place he belongs. But it was a struggle for him to get there and this story kept you on the edge of your seat a few times.
I would be interested to see what becomes of this man and his new found family. I hope the author will revisit him in another book and add to his story.
Worth the read.
I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic
Interesting, Engaging, Thought-Provoking
I like the entire series
Her way of spinning the tale through her words and tone of her voice. She makes the story have more depth.
No, I read so many books that it wasn't to that level but it was one of those great weekend books that you can enjoy on a drive to the coast or sitting on the beach s it is relaxing yet fun which in my world makes it a good book.
If you didn't read the novella you'd be a little lost for a bit. If you did read the novella you'd be a little irritated at the slight repetition. But you can get through it.
When Dad came for a visit. BAH HAHAHA!
YES! And she's AWESOME!
I can see where the other readers would be a bit on the harsh side but really think about the situation and the ages of the characters. When you take that into account Ms. Tyler NAILED IT!
Yes. Navy SEALS are SAILORS not soliders. If "General" Grant is in the NAVY then he's an ADMIRAL. Also, there are no Marine Lieutenants the equivalent would be a Marine Captain. Please Ms. Tyler I know you might think most of your audience might not be women in uniform......but you might be surprised ;)
Kallen and Mac could have stopped taking turns throwing childish tantrums and storming out of rooms. Everytime there was a little bit of drama....it ended up falling flat. And you ask yourself is that it. This book needs a serious rewrite.
No. Only because Savage Wakening in this series was very good. I'm stumped on how you can write one really good book and the next one is suck so poorly. I wouldn't believe it could be the same author.
Even though Kalen and Mackenzie annoyed me to death, I still managed to enjoy this book. Kalen seems not being able to grow up and Mackenzie behaves like uneducated young lady, especially considering that she supposed to be a shrink... I was hoping for more in this in this book. I doubt I will listen it again, but I definitely do not regret spending a credit.
J D Tyler did an excellent job showing us a view of the broken mind of Kalen Black.
I did like the book, but there were two things that led me to my decision to say "I could take it or leave it" and give only a 3 star rating.
1. I think the frequent on again, off again, thing with Mac, did too much to take me out of the enjoyable read zone. Between that, and Kalen's "wakeup" ending, I felt the story was a bit flat, felt rushed, and left me frustrated.
2. I found the numerous sex scenes to be irritating, and an interruption, rather than an addition to the story. It seemed J.D. took the lazy way out (imagination, and dreams) rather than developing natural story progressions to sexual scenarios, to keep one engaged with the characters.
I like this series but I agree with others about he book not being great but good. Overall I enjoyed the story but still think it is missing some sort of twist or surprise. I don't know what this might be but maybe it is only good because the outcome seems predictable. All the books seem to be laid out the same. The alpha male denies his attraction to his mate, nearly dies and the they get together to save each other. Having said that it was still a good listen and I would still recommend it to others. I enjoyed the narration and performance. I will continue to follow this series as there are some interesting characters introduced and I think that maybe the story lines will get more complex as the series evolves. I give this book an ok rating but not bad.
