    When goth-girl Glory Peterson's plane crashes she walks to find help. What she finds are people living in teepees like it's the Old West. Wolf's Shadow knows Glory is his mate. Glory's happy to take a roll in the hay with him while she's waiting for transportation back to civilization, but when she finds out she's gone fifty years into the future and Shadow is a bossy werewolf who thinks he owns her, her attitude changes fast. Shadow is used to giving orders that are obeyed. Glory hasn't obeyed an order since kindergarten.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I always love the shifter thing, although that was not a big part of the story. Very clever and intriguing how the characters from past/future reconnect. And the ending was very sweet and felt natural for the couple.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I enjoyed the first one more and will definitely check out the 3rd when it's available in audio.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I thought the narrator did a fair job but I really disliked how snarky/annoyed she made the main female character sound. Glory was already written way too sarcastic for my taste but the narrating kicked it up a notch....or three. The male lead was a similar situation. Even though he was supposed to be an alpha, it just didn't come across that way due to the writing and narrating combo. I think that was more of a character issue for me though.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    ****(SPOILER ALERT)*****

    Okay okay I get it. It can't realły be what I think of as not-so-good ending when it's the author's "world" and she decides everything in it but.....I'm soooo disappointed. It was very unsatisfying after a 13 book series total. I feel like the whole arc of the series was to really understand her and Eric together, and I realize allllll the many reasons why that's a tough one, so would it really have been so bad for her to have an HEA with him? (There are ways she could have had Freyda taken out of the equation). She mentions in the last paragraph she would survive if her and Sam didn't work out. I understand "girl power" but is believing in love (even if I'm sad over who the beau is at the end), and declaring her character happy and with a partner in life so bad?

    Thank you for a great series Mrs. Harris, you are so talented and your Sookie books have brought me much enjoyment, but I'm sorry to say I wish it ended differently!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Erin McCarthy Fast Track series


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    Great as usual! I have to admit it took a few false starts to warm up to her on the first book but either I got used to her accent, she toned it down a bit, or a combo of both, but this one has been just as good as the rest of the series. You definitely end up thinking she IS Sookie!
