Jacquelyn Frank has written another great book in this series and Xe Sands does a great job of narrating it as well. There is no let down from the first book as so often happens with book series. The plot and sub-plots keep the action moving at a good pace. One of the things I liked best in this book is that some of the "Good Guys" in the first book are starting to show their true colors in this book. It will be interesting to see what happens to them in up coming books. The bad thing is now I have to wait for the next book.
A great follow up to book 1! The storyline is very well done and the plot has thickened. I haven't figured out who the bad guy is yet and that's not normal for me. Mia is getting a little smarter but she still has a ways to go. While we do learn some more about the Krinar there are still a lot of questions to be answered. I was also surprised by Mia's family, while Korum does win them over, it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be.
There are only 2 problems with this book, first I now have to wait for book 3 and Kitty Hendrix was not the right narrator for it. I hope they can get some one like Xe Sands or Sophie Eastlake for the next book. While Kitty does have a good voice, she does not make the switch back and forth between male and female voices. That is the only thing that is wrong with this book. I found I lost track sometimes of who was speaking because she uses the same voice for both parts.
But over all I am glad I spent the credit on it. If you liked book 1, you will like this one as well, if you over look the narrator.
While browsing through books I came across the review written by another listener and I'm sorry to say I do not remember who it was. But she mentioned this series in the review that she had written for another book and am I glad she did!!! I wasn't to interested in the original book, but I decided to check out this series and again I have to thank you for mentioning it. This is the story of Lily St. James a dormant and Daniel (who happens to be the police chief of New Orleans) a werewolf. This is the first time I have heard of the term "dormant" in relationship to werewolves, a term that means more then just mate. Lily is caught between 2 powerful alpha werewolves, Daniel and Cole. As the story moves along, you come to find out Cole is not the sinister werewolf that he seems to be despite what he does to Lily.
Ms. Walden writes a fast paced book with may twist and turns and Gildart Jackson does a great job of narrating all though he could use a little work on his female voices.
A very interesting twist on "War of the Worlds." I found Korum to be a fascinating character and Mia to truly be naïve. Because Mia is so inexperienced, she does not think to ask questions that she should and it could have cost her a great deal. This story also shows what can go wrong when your "Allies" don't give you the whole truth about things.
There are many things that were left unexplained in this book, but that give me a reason to look forward to the next in this series. I do hope that Anna Zaires continues with Korum and Mia's story and more about the Krinar.
This is a bit of a let down after Thea Harrison's Elder Race series. While she does a good job of writing this book, it is what I would call a ground work book for what I hope will come. Unfortunately that is what most of this book is, ground work, but there is some good action at the end and some very interesting questions posed at the end. It will be interesting to see if what I think and hope happens to Nick. Now that the ground work has been done, I look forward to the next book in this series as well as the next in her Elder Race series.
As always Sophie Eastlake does a great job of narrating.
A great second book and no let down from the first (Feral Sins). Suzanne Wright continues with a good story line, fast action pace, and strong supporting characters. This is Dante's story and give a very in depth look at a Beta's role in a wolf pack. Something that is lacking in other books even if they do mention the Beta. It also explains a lot about the imprinting and what can happen if it goes wrong, which it did once to Dante. Jaime is the other lead character in this story and her story tells what can happen to a shifter that is traumatized early in life. Together they over come what happened in their pasts. There are a lot of funny scenes as well. I very much look forward to hearing the other pack members stories.
If you liked Thea Harrison's Elder Race series or Nalini Singh's Changeling series, then I think you will enjoy this series as well.
If your looking for a good love story this is the one for you. This is a straight forward love story, no vamps, wolves, or changlings. Just a good honest love story with alot of fun and a strong cast of supporting characters. Its hard to find a good book while waiting for my favorite authors to put out something new, but this is a good book. If you don't like love stories, then this is not the book for you.
If you have not heard the other books in this series, you will not really understand why these 4 stories were needed to be told. I was very glad to hear Tam and Nat's story, I have wandered about them since book 1. Zach and Cooper's stories are a lot of fun as well, but it was Lara and Walker's story that I really liked. I was hoping after book 10 that more would be written about them. It was also nice to hear alittle more about what happened after the "War" but there is still alot more to be written on that and I really hope Ms. Singh does write about it. I also hope to see more about the "Arrow's" some of them seem like they would have very interesting stories as well. If you liked this series, then I think you will like hearing these 4 stories as well.
I can see why Kismet (female lead) need a psychologist and boy can she get herself into trouble or maybe I should say trouble finds her. Dev (male lead) is a very mysterious charater and it will be interesting to find out more about him. The supporting cast and sub-plots help make this a good listen.
I found the writers spin on vampires interesting, funny, and refreshing. However, the narrator leaves sum to be desired. Maybe I'm just spoiled by my 3 favorite narrators who do both female and male voices so well.
Over all I found this book to be a fun one to listen to and I've already downloaded book 2.
I would not have normally gotten this book, but none of my normal authors have anything new out yet, so I decided to try this one out. I'm not disappointed that I did. This is a very cute story and Ms. Harper nailed the small town mentallity on the head. I know, because I have lived in several small towns over the years. Jane's family reminds me alot of my own and that's no joke! Jane is an interesting character and Gabriel is very mysterious, I would like to know more about him and his past. Ms. Harper does say that he will let us know at "A later time."
If your looking for the normal vampire story, then this one is not for you. This is more along the lighter side of vampires and is a much refreshing look at them. The one thing I did not like about this book is the narrator needs to work more on the male voices. But for the most part this is lighthearted and will make you laugh at times.
The only thing wrong with this book is that it's to short. There is a lot I would like to know yet, so I hope Gillian Archer will consider re-writing this one and expanding it. If your looking for a short love story, then you will like this book.
