This is the second installment in Richelle Mead's spinoff sequel to the Vampire Academy series. There's more new faces and some of the same characters from the Vampire Academy stories. The drama is hotter, the romances are even more steamier, and the stakes are even higher than ever before.
I read Blood of Eden first and then when this audio was available I got it and I realized I made a HUGE mistake. This audio sets you up for the first book in the series. When I listened to Dawn of Eden it was good but I wish I had listened to this first. I was confused quite a bit. The story was good so there wasn't any problems there. I think and this is my opinion that if you have read Blood of Eden then don't bother with this audio unless you want to know what happened to get things the way they are in Blood of Eden. Its a must read/listen to before reading the first book in the series. The story was well written and it lets the reader know how things happened to get you ready for the first book.
I had heard some bad reviews on this book but I had to find out for myself. I loved the story. It was wonderful to listen to. The narrator did an excellent job and she had such a delightful, easy to listen to voice. The story was more for the teenage genre, yet its still an audio book for any age.I found I couldn't stop listening and I had to find out what would happen next. The story takes three angels from there home in heaven to the mortal world of earth. The angels entire lives had to change by going to school,work, and everything that humans had to do. Danger lurks and it takes some time before it shows and the angels must yield from danger or face it head on. Meanwhile Bethany,the youngest angel finds love with Xavier and struggles without her feelings and mortality, thinking of becoming mortal because she never wants to be taken away from Xavier. Will their love endanger them all or will it save them all? I loved the book. I thought it was another different take on books written by about angels. If you love books with angels then I highly recommend this audio book.
Ok I have to be honest so I am. I couldn't finish the audio. I found it boring and I couldn't stay on track. It could be just me but it sure wasn't what I normally listen to. I don't mind books like those. Patricia Cornwall used to be my favorite author. I still read her books but I think I have outgrown the murder, mystery thrillers. I only got the audio because it was on sale. Sorry, but I could only give it one star.
Calvin Malone can't seem to stop causing trouble. He now has charged Have, Marc, and Faythe with trespassing,kidnapping, murder, and not to mention treason. Faythe realizes Calvin hasn't gave her much choice so she decides her brothers murder must be avenged. She also has to get Calvin out of the picture. He wouldn't stop until he was dead. Her father was also dead and he expected her to take over the Pride. Now, she sets out to get rid of Malone once and for all and take back her home. These are absolutely wonderful series. I hate that it ended. The narrator did an awesome job. She made the characters leap out. I felt a huge bond to the characters, especially Marc. Rachel Vincent did a brilliant job and it a remarkable and wonderfully written. I would hope Rachel Vincent would write more of the Shifter series. I only wish they had been longer atleast when it comes to audio.
Attacks seem to always come so it should be normal by now. Today was different but this time the attacks are coming from the sky. They weeded everywhere and trying to kill the pack and still the young tabby. These weren't just any bird either. These birds are huge and they shapeshift also. The Pride seems to be falling apart. Nothing had been the same since her brother had been killed. Faythe had made a huge mistake that she knew could tear the Pride even further apart. The Pride realizees soon enough that Calvin Malone was behind the attacks by the Thunderbirds. Faythe had to convince the Thunderbirds that Calvin Malone had lied and deceiver them. Faythe must find the proof she needs and get Cassie back ( the teenage tabby)
Another amazing story that just blows you away.Prey is the fourth book of the series Shifters. Early Faythe had been on trial fighting for her life. She overcome that with her life still intact. She goes back home and is reinstated as an enforcer but without pay for a year as part of her community service. Another responsibility is taking care of the young tabby that was found at the lodge. Then she has another task that she has to teach all the werecats. When Marc turns up missing ,Faythes world is turned upside down. She realizes that Marc was ambushed and put in a car. There's so much of his blood left at his home,everyone believes him to be dead. On top of that, the council is scrutinizing her fathers authority to lead the pack. His actions are being watched and some of the other alphas want his azelpha status removed and the Pride taken away from him.
The third installment to the series of Shifters is called Pride. This is the third bookin the series. I would say its heartrending and intense. Faythe has found herself in a world of trouble. She now is on trial for her life. She discovered something that only she was able to do and it has now found its way back to her and there's no doubt it might cause her everything, including her life. While waiting at a remote lodge waiting for the council to decide her fate the learn there's a group of rouge strays killing hikers and looking for a young tabby cat. Its up to Faythe to earn this very young yet extremely wild female tabby. She's determined to help in every way possible but first she has to show the council she is the only one that can civilize this tabby and convince them not to kill her.
Rouge is the second book in the series Shifters, Faythe rejoines her Pride and has made alot of mistakes along the way. She's tough though. She is now a enforcer, wich means she fights,guards, and protects the Pride. Soon word gets back to the Pride that male werecats are being murdered. Faythe's dad is Alpha of his Pride. Faythe wants very much to prove to her father. Her father expects her to take his spot as Alpha one day. He expects her to learn the ways of being in charge. Faythe and Marc leave to kind who is killing the toms. The story keeps getting better. I have started to boñd with the characters. Faythe is so rebellious. She says what she wants and does what she wants wich fihnds her in trouble a lot.
Stray is the first story in the series Shifters. It is a wonderful listen and the narrator does a great job with her voice and character changes. Mostly, the series is for the teenage genre, yet still a great listen, for the older generation, nevertheless. Faythe Sanders always seems to find trouble. She's a werecat tabby shapeshifter. She does what she wants and has for a long time. Faythe is made to return back home from college after an attack from a stray on her. The real reason is for her safety. Tabbies wich are female werecats began disappearing. In her society males come plentiful where female tabby cats are few. The society is extremely protective over the tabby cats. Faythe isn't like other tabby's. She hates being told what to do and all she wants to do is return back to college and the life she has made for herself. Faythe soon discovers trouble. She might not be afraid to fight but its hard to fight when your unconscious. She wakes to realize she had been kidnapped and in a cage. I loved the first installment of Shifters. Its a must read but an even better listen. I loved the story from beginning to end.
