Something is devouring Milo, and this time it isn't just his guilty conscience. Meet the Bentley brothers; Milo, a troubled young man who slaughters women at the behest of his cruel older brother, Spencer. Their already complicated lives slip into a spiral of madness when Milo is attacked by a werewolf during a routine body disposal. While Milo is unsure what is happening to him, Spencer finds he prefers the company of the wolf, and does everything he can to keep Milo from discovering the truth. The truth, however, is a complication all its own, with or without the beast.
The family that preys together stays together, in this wild take on the werewolf mythology.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I wouldn't say this book is enjoyable, but its a disturbingly interesting story of a very Ill and abused young man...with a wicked twist!
Milo...I really feel for Milo...
MENTALLY ILL MADNESS! This would make a very crazy movie!

The audio adds more of a sense of drama and sets the scene in a way that the print version would not be able to.
The young woman Milo was in love with. It was Miko's love for her that caused him to face himself.
When Milo finally became reality oriented and realized the truth about who and what he was and took responsibility for his actions.
The beast within.

This is a complex intense unique thriller delving into the psyche of a troubled mind. There are surprises in the novel and things are not what they seem.

After reading Tonia Brown's Skin Trade and Lucky Stiff, it was readily apparent she knew how to twist the zombie genre in new and interesting ways. So when I had the chance to listen to this audiobook, I had to wonder what she would have in store for the werewolf mythos. Hoo boy, she had plans.
The Bentley brothers, Spencer and Milo, are killers. Though, Spencer being the older brother leaves him calling the shots, and taking more of a fiendish delight in the trail of blood they leave behind. But it's when Milo is attacked by a werewolf one night that the family dynamic changes ... in more ways than one.
The interplay between these two brothers feels almost Shakespearean in nature, although there's less eloquence in their back-and-forth than there are expletives. Throw in the fact that Milo's shifting into a wolf has a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde element, and the dynamic becomes all the intriguing.
Giving voice to these characters was Luke Smith's narration, who did a real good job conveying the tension, rivalry, and deeply flawed nature of each character. His performance as the wolf was especially chilling.
If you're looking for something a little off the beaten path with your werewolf stories, but want something raw and nasty all the same, this book is for you. And if you can score the Audible version, the performance should make the experience that much more visceral.

Luke Smith's exemplary talents as a narrator.
The complexity of interactions & the relationships between the characters are what I found most interesting. The only thing that I can point to as possibly uninteresting is that the story is a little slow at the beginning.
Luke Smith did a brilliant job bringing Tonia Brown's characters to life. His performance here added an extra level of enjoyment that I doubt I would have gotten if I'd merely read this story as text.
Yes, but I can't be specific without revealing spoilers.
Ms Brown is the first author I've seen who uses this particular plot twist in a text format. I've seen it in TV & film, but never in a book, so that was quite refreshing and caught me completely flat footed.
Both the ending Ms Brown chose and the book's brevity were disappointing to me. I kind of understand why she chose the conclusion she did, but I kept hoping it would take a different direction. I felt somewhat cheated at the end. This is one of those books that could have easily ended much more unconventionally. I would have appreciated Ms Brown delving further into the characters of Milo & the beast by extending the novel considerably.
Finally, I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.
Not sure "loved" is the correct word, but my favorite character is the blonde "ghost". She brought and added depth to the madness.
The end when all of your suspensions are confirmed and a few surprises are thrown at you.
He does scary well. The gravel in his voice make me look in the closet before I shut out the light.
This is not a light, fluffy listen, it is dark and pretty intense and there are gory parts.

Just a warning, this book isn't for the faint of heart! The author is very descriptive in all of her writing, but Devouring Milo takes it to the next level. It is gory to the extreme, and with Tonia's descriptions, I felt as if I was witness to the horrors taking place. Every sight, sound and smell in the story was beautifully horrific.
Norwegian in a English world!
New book from Badass Zombie Road Trip! Yeah! I loved Badass Zombie Road Trip, and i wanted to love this. Guess what: I did! Devouring Milo is a different kind of book, but still a lot of the humor from BZRT was here! Tonia Brown is fast growing as one of my favorite "Zombie like" books! Here she plays with werewolf mythos and i LOVE it! 4 hrs and 50 mins are 4 hrs and 50 mins in "gore heaven"! So children: Stay away! I think Tonia Brown is going to be something BIG! I think she is somewhat a new and undiscovered talent that people need to hear about!
I know Luke Smith from Dead Cells where he read the book a bit to fast for me. Here he not only does a good job, but a excellent job! His werewolf in this is one of the BEST werewolves i have heard! a 5 star review should not been given easy! So i am proud of giving this book a 5 out of 5, and Luke Smith is apart of that, with a excellent book from Tonia Brown
