“Jacqueline Barbary's latest is a shifter thrill ride…. Barbarry's m/m passion sizzles but it's her intricate shifter lore that makes this story such fun. With solid worldbuilding details, excellent bouts of action and suspense and a surprise at the conclusion, readers will be begging for a sequel." (RT Book Reviews)
Something paranormal. I love fantasy / paranormal romance.
Awesome is the only word that comes to mind! He does an excellent job narrating Harper Sloan's Corps Security books. I tend to look for books narrated by Sean Crisden, Sebastian York, Mason Lloyd, and David Brenin. In this book, he did the best he could with what he had to work with.
If it were't for Sean Crisden narrating, I would have given this book 1 star for each category.
I was unable to finish listening beyond the first several chapters due to the narrator's voice. He wasn't monotone, but he had a cadance that remained the same regardless of what was going on in the words. He also did not have different voices for the two main characters and did not pause for normal lenths of time at puncutation, so it was impossible to keep track of who was speaking. It was a frustrating and annoying experience. Since I didn't finish listening to the story I can't judge it, but it seemed pretty average.
"A perfect union that will shape their world"
I like that there's a backstory to the Shapeshifter story. It's not only that they are being hunted but they are being captured and experimented. There's a frontier, a rebellion for Shapeshifting rights among humans.
I think that the balance between the erotic scenes is just about right. And when the erotic scenes do happen I can easily envisage it by combining the descriptive narrative and the audiobook art.
I can only compare it to A Howl to the Moon by Nathan Squiers. Only because it is the only Shape-shifting gay fiction I've heard. However this one is doubly as great and has more substance.
Robert. He's the protagonist and we get to hear about his family and that he cared for his family home and traditions. And in a way you find emotions for him.
No. But it is easily doable.
The narration was clear, understandable and great, even during the eroticism.
Would have loved to hear more about how the frontier progresses.
The story is invigorating.
