    Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kiss of Snow to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version, so I have no way of knowing, but the narrator did her usual spectacular job. Each character had a distinct voice, and none were grating, whiny or overdone.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of Snow?

    Oh geeze, I have to pick? There's no way. I loved the scene when Hawke and Sienna are playing in the woods...delightful! I also loved the scene between Hawke and Judd--the one with the letter opener. Nalini is a master of saying so much in so few words. Then there are all the scenes between Lara and Walker...there's just no way to pick only one! This whole book was wonderful from beginning to end. I've read it 3 times already,, and foresee reading it again and again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I've been waiting for this book since reading book 3 of the series, and my reactions ran the emotional gammit. This one is raw and heartwarming, sad and joyful all at once.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    This entire series has been about Sookie's growth as a character. In the first book we met a social outcast, a recluse, crippled by her telepathy and terrified of herself. She was the perfect victim, because she had no self-confidence, and was semingly unable to take control of the events effecting her life. In the past few books, and especially in this one, we see a stronger, smarter, more resiliant Sookie, who has learned to value herself and her abilities and who has decided to take control of her own future--as much as anybody can.

    While I, like most other readers, enjoyed the ins and outs of Sookie'sromantic life throughout this series, the underlying story was of her coming into her own.

    "I also knew, that if he turned away from me at this moment, I would survive that, and I would find a way to flourish...I'm Sookie Stackhouse, and I belong here."

    If you're a shipper with a particular adgenda, beware, you may be disappointed. If you've been reading between the lines, you can pretty much guess how this story ends. The curtain comes down on Bon Temps with only the faintest shaddow of vampires in the wings. And while Sookie's future is uncertain, it's not without the hope of love on the horizon.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I came very close to calling out from work so I could spend some quality couch time with this novel. I resisted the impulse, but I definitely spent my entire commute and my lunch break with Johanna Parker's excellent narration keeping me company.


    Any additional comments?

    If you've put time and emotional energy into reading this series for the past few years, read this one. Yes, there is a distinct air of "tying up loose ends" at various points throughout the book, but you'll be left with a sense of satisfaction for having seen Sookie through to the end of her journey.
