    Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

    Story
    Where does Macrieve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book, like it predecessors is a fast-paced, action packed, with hot and steamy love'n fantasy style. However, for me this book was lacking, or, more like it was too much. Kresley Cole's writing is very entertaining and also very formulaic. She is queen of: hero screws up relationship to near point-of-no-return, but in the end overcomes past traumas to win over the fated mate. Which is good, we love the HEA. But there can be only so much trauma and misery, else you just grow to dislike the main characters or stop connecting with them. That is what happened for me with this book. I understand Cole's need to switch things up, hence the relationship starts off too well and collapses shortly after. It was so much of a roller coaster, I started to lose patience with the characters. Also, I do enjoy the lingo and jargon associated with the character's personality, ie. the hipster or surfer, and yet this book was way to much on the sports analogies. I liked it, but I feel Shadow's Claim has been better than Lothaire and Macrieve.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Robert Petkoff rocks this series.


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

    No, usually I do. But this book I had to break it up.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    What made the experience of listening to Feral Sins the most enjoyable?

    I bought this book some time ago, and I will admit- I'm a finicky woman and sometimes book covers will just rub me the wrong way. I think that was the case here, because once I got started I could not stop listening. I could not stop listening to: go to the bathroom, go to the grocery store, go for a walk (only sane time), and even to bed. So let us get to the reason why this book was so good. It was hilarious, but not with the really crappy one liners that belong on bumper stickers and T's at Hot Topic. No, the main characters had a sense of humor through life's B.S. Plus the heroine was strong and NEVER needed to be saved. She wasn't the "little missus waiting for her time to blossom", bleh. And the hero was well, an alpha male dealing with an alpha female. Plot-wise, this is a romance book and not a thriller. For the most part the author could keep some tension and fun action scenes in a hot and heavy love story. Be forewarned, if you are not into explicit sex, foul language, and erotic play especially dealing with light BDSM and erotic themed content, this book is not for you. And if you do then read it and go "aw-my-gawd this book is so dirty" while laughing the fat cells off your butt. Well at least I hope that's what I'm doing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    At first I couldn't decide if I didn't like the book because of the narrator or the story itself. Yep, it was the story. I have no problems with reading/listening to tragedy, however I felt as if the author was riding on the emo-train a little too long and too hard. Really, between the heroine being TSTL (to stupid to live) and the hero just going from one calamity to the next. It just got to be so depressing I though I should re-read the Kite Runner as an uplifting tale! Really, how can you have a series when everything has been crammed into one book. Oh and there is sex. Which, that was pretty good- but so is porn.


    What about Kelly Fish’s performance did you like?

    I really cannot tell. I would need to listen to more from her to find out.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not for the price.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    After a bit, hearing "Hell Yeah" or a variation of it over and over makes my eye twitch and teeth grind. I have issues with the weak or adolescent protagonist who just needs to mature to realize their own significance. The story becomes sucked into their own internal whiny neurosis.


    What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

    Did fine.


    Could you see Sentinels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, well maybe on some version of CW teen vampire- blah, blah, blah.


    Any additional comments?

    As I've stated, I avoid a certain type of character. If you like the early Rachel Morgan from the Hollows series then this is fine for you. Like Kim Harrison's main character, this one loses the cool kick butt persona for habitual "oops I guess that was highly stupid and insensitive to others. Sowwy."

    Always at the top...until the next book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them. Even the secondary characters are developed to have interesting quirks and becomes personal to the reader. I'm already fixating on whom the next book could feature. So exciting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The love scene at the folly or when Lothaire provides his usual sage advice.


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

    Squeal like a little girl. Gotta love the big HEA.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I've listened to this book approximately 10 times. With this audiobook, I feel like a teenage girl and a new pop song. I cannot get it out of my head.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Goddess with a Blade?

    The scene with her foster father. For a very imaginary story, the characters and their emotional issues are very real and tangible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    After the shower... Ahem. So hot.


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

    Just loved it.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope this will become a series some day.
