Janet was a daughter of a native american man and a white women "jane doe", no one knew. Being illegitimate or motherless, Janet was teased a lot in her tribe and ostracized. When she was an adult, she ran off to find herself. She met a man named Mick, climbed on their motorbikes and headed out of town.
5 years later, she has returned home because she was asked to help find a missing girl named Amy. Amy's family had no body and no information, and they just to know whether their daughter was kidnapped or if she was dead. Returning home means that Janet Baguette has to deal with everything she had been running from, her community, her grandmother, her love for Mick, and finally her true identity as a Stormwalker.
I can't say that I liked this story. It wasn't engaging, and it wasn't a story that I would ever read again. In fact, I kept looking to see how much time was left in the audiobook and was horrified that there was still over 5hrs to go. To go on with a series, there has to be something I care about or something I am curious about...and there isn't. I may read book 2 in the future, but not anytime soon.
I will say the narrator did a good job with the various voices and her pace, but I just didn't connect with the heroine, heroine or any part of this story.
This story took up to 8hrs before the plot really unfolded. The narrator didn't make the story better. It was just a slow build up and it didn't reach a peak for me. I will try book 2 because there is potential in the plot.
I found this one pretty slow and I really enjoyed book 1. The plot was unbelievable and it took a long time for action to happen. The narration was good but couldn't save it.
This was a well narrated story of the evolution of two guys. One was learning to find his place amongst the family business and carve out his own niche. The other was coming to terms with past abides. I really liked it.
I didn't enjoy this one because I never connected with the characters. It was an okay story but I've heard much better with Demonica or BDB.
This book fell below my expectations as I couldn't see what differences humans and vampires had absent blood drinking and 1 read the minds of others,
The narrator was dry and didn't add anything to this weak beginning. I want to read book 2 because there's potential.
I loved this audiobook and I am amazed at how Jennifer Estep keeps the quality of the story topnotch though we are in the double digits in the series. I will admit that Madeline Madga Monroe turned out to be a much weaker version of Mab. How disappointing. But she did give Gin all she could handle.
We still got to see all of our favorite characters both good and bad. What excites me the most is that I have no idea what the author has in store for us next. We know the Ashland underworld will raise a champion tasked to take out the Spider, but whom? what? how? and where will they engage our deadly assassin? I can't wait for the next book.
Book 1 felt like a probation period for Dex. This book saw Dex embraced as a member of The THIRDS. It also saw Dex and Sloane trying to figure out what exactly they were doing with each other.
Favorite audiobook moment was Cael telling Sloan about Dex and the Vaccum. Funniest scene EVER. I kept rewinding it and laughing. Excellent rendition by the narrator. I read some reviews where Dex's humor annoyed those readers but it's because Dex hides a lot behind jokes, laughter and a jovial personality. It's his coping mechanism with life's hurts and he has had a lot of hurts.
Given the drama with these two, I certainly see why fraternizing with co-workers is frowned upon. It has brought tension to the workplace and it clouds judgment. I also wonder how the people tasked with protecting society can't tell everyone in their organization is boinking their partner.
I am impressed with the writing because it is full of humor and the world building is good. I look forward to book 3 and more about the vigilante group. Face it, the tide didn't turn until the vigilantes got involved, so I actually like them. I will wait for the audiobook Jan 2015.
I enjoy the narrator and the job he is doing.
I had avoided this book because many reviews said it was heartbreaking. I guess what I saw was hope. The other side of tragedy when people start picking up the pieces of their lives. The book was written really well. It wasn't overly sappy and it wasn't too fluffy. It have a great flow and great pace. Once I started, I didn't stop listening to it until it finished.
I loved little Polly. Somehow she saw the capacity for love in Mallory and she grabbed onto it hard. It was so sweet watching the shell that both Mallory and Pete formed around themselves develop crack after crack, until the shells shattered. Love and acceptance is the ultimate Christmas gift and that is what this book was about. The second chance at happiness made this book heartwarming, not heartbreaking. It was a great book to read on New Year's Eve. I felt like I was transported to Mimosa Lane and was a part of the story. I look forward to reading some more books in this series.
the narrator did a great job, but the book was entirely too long and slow for my enjoyment. I think the characters didn't get physical until the last 4-5 hours of the book
I came in expecting a hot book because the characters weren't really endearing.
I did feel bad in part for Dan, as he was was frozen in place after the loss of his lover Justin. It was why he was on the fence when he was propositioned by Jeff and Evan.
I liked Chris, Justin & Dan's bff, as he was a great sounding board. I just wanted things to happened much faster.
This narrator does a good job with this book. Clearly this couple has great chemistry, but the sex was excessive. It was so much that I was getting annoyed.
The narrator did a good job differentiating the various creatures and humans that I had no trouble following even though I was cleaning the house. There is a really interesting story and creative world, but it’s getting lost by the constant sex scenes. I enjoyed the writing but I am familiar with this author as I have read other series by her. So I suspected that I would like this one. I appreciate the fact that this series is different from Rhiannon’s Law and the Desire of the Otherworld series.
The characters were also entertaining as Diskant displayed usual shifter possessiveness, without being overbearing. He was also a playful shifter which gave Ava room to be witty with him. Ava’s independence will serve her as I know her brother will be a force in the next book. She has proven that she is no wilting flower, so she will be a good partner to Diskant as the Shepherds continue with their agenda.
I want to listen book 2 but I really hope there is more story and less claiming.
