    Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire - a nightmare in his mind - against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead. When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow - accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings emerge multiplied.

    I've read all Kresley Cole's books, at least twice, and Sebastian is my favorite vampire. I am so happy with the choice of narrator for her books. Robert Petkoff's portrayal of the vampires with their Estonian accents was perfect, as was the Scottish brogue of the werewolves, and he even caught the sassiness of the Valkeries. Not overdone. Thank you for putting these books on audio, and for using such a talented narrator.

    Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.

    Story

    The humanity Patricia Briggs gives her characters in my opinion, has not been equaled by any other writer in this genre, and add to that the character range of Holter Graham... Takes my breath away. I loved this story, it's my favorite series by Briggs. We get to know the complicated Charles and Brother Wolf, his dimensions revealed to us in a way that never resorts to making her characters oblivious to what is more than obvious to the reader. This makes her characters smart. We also get to watch Anna become stronger, and move past her insecurities. I love that Patricia doesn't resort to making Anna pathetic, which many authors would use, just because it's just easier. This is an inspirational story.

    Patricia Briggs' "unique" (Kliatt) novel of a slave, swordwielder, and spy gets a second life with an exciting new package to attract the fans that made her Mercy Thompson novels bestsellers.

    Story

    I've read every book written by Patricia Briggs at least twice, and have listened to all her audio books until this one. I found Ms Bradshaw's narration irritating, so much so that i couldn't listen to the book. It seemed she was trying too hard to make her voice smooth and husky instead of using a natural tone. If not for that, I might have been able to listen to the characters because they didn't seem too bad at first, and I thought once she got into the book, they'd only improve. Unfortunately, I found myself grinding my teeth at her narrator's voice. Disappointing.

    Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Nalini Singh again?

    Yes!


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

    I don't consider listening to books


    Was Kiss of Snow worth the listening time?

    Well.... I guess I didn't want to miss a chapter of the Psy/Changeling series, but I was uncomfortable with the
