But this legend is so old, that almost no one in modern day St. Augustine knows of it, and if they did they wouldn't believe it...that is until one, summoned by three women dabbling in black magic, crosses over from the dead. Now the Shiru is determined to get revenge on the human race, and to breed with a strong woman with an ancient blood line. Unbeknownst to her, local tourguide, half-Cherokee Ssabra Onih, is the Shiru's target. Fortunately for her, and the rest of the town, the spirit of Chief Tolomato comes to guide her, and enlists her help to hunt down the evil Shiru and send it back to the underworld.
At the same time, city police officer Jack Colvin is working hard to track down the perpetrator of a series of grisly murders. Soon Colvin's and Onih's paths cross, and they join forces with the help of Chief Tolomato and other friendly spirits, in a desperate attempt to stop the seemingly invincible Shiru.

"The suspense of Clive Barker and Dean Koontz." (Booklist)
Whenever an author follows up a story with one that could be construed as a re-write from the previously published work, doubts are abundant. I was not disappointed in Breed. Good story, good character development, not the ending I expected (well, the ending yes, but not the climax that got me there) so it was a pleasure to hear it to the end. Good narration, good story, worth the download.
Still a good story and I liked the characters but wasn't the best I've listened to from this author. If you got a credit to spend its worth the listen.
This book was scary good. I loved this author. All of his stories are very intense. I get so involved in the story, that I feel myself in the middle of it. Also the narrater with his beautiful voice transports you inside the story.
Based on the description and some of the reviews, I thought I'd give this book a listen. It wasn't for me.
This novel wasn't horrible--it managed to keep my interest throughout, but sometimes just barely. Many times a thriller or horror book will start out slow, but then the action will pick up quickly. Not so with Breed.
One thing that bugged me about this novel was the poor grammar (on the part of the omnisient narrator/author, not the characters) and bad word choices. Twice one of the protagonists says something to the effect of "Here comes the calvary" rather than "cavalry." There were several more errors, all of which were minor, but quickly took me out of the story.
If you're not bugged by little things like that, you might enjoy the story. I thought the premise was a good one.
