I'm conflicted about writing this review because while I liked the story, the narrator was terrible. I don't really think it was Casey Holloway's fault though, I think she was given some extremely bad direction on how this story should sound because the choppiness seemed extremely deliberate and consistant (beginning to end unfortunately) For the record, who ever thought a monotoned, robotic voice was a good idea, made the wrong call. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say he/she is in the WRONG.LINE.OF.WORK. Making sure the narrator's diction is crisp and precise shouldn't get in the way of the story itself, and it did here. I'm not being harsh or mean, I'm just being truthful. I almost cringe at how the other reviewers are going to react.
Now, the story itself was great and exactly the kind of audiobook I look for. Action, fight sequences, romance, puzzles -- this book has it all. But, word of warning, you may want to read this one rather than listen to it.
It's like a werewolf Cinderella story, only with implied rape murder and Native Americans. Not that there is anything wrong with that. In fact I love this series. It's not easy to find a fresh angle for the werewolf theme, but this short story from longtime fantasy writer Patricia Briggs proves that solid storytelling and confident craftsmanship can rejuvenate even the most tired of genres.
This one is not to be missed! BUY EETTT!
