Before her death in July 1997, beloved lesbian feminist author Chris Anne Wolfe published two of her four classic Amazon adventure novels: Shadows of Aggar and Fires of Aggar. But these two volumes are only the first half of her Aggar cycle.
Chris Anne left her unpublished manuscript to her creative partner, Jennifer DiMarco, who continues to work transcribing and publishing these three dozen novels and collections. Find out more about the Wolfe Campaign at www.ChrisAnneWolfe.com.
Shadows of Aggar begins it all. Diana n'Athena is an Amazon working for the Terran Empire on the medieval planet of Aggar. Her mission is to rescue a downed pilot/spy from Aggar's wilds. But when the Council demands she be bonded to a Shadow in order to be allowed to make the journey, things get interesting. Shadows are exceptional guides and fighters, but Elana is something more - she has the gift of the Blue Sight. As the two women race against time to prevent an all-out intergalactic war, they become erotically entangled, complicating both their lives and putting their mission in danger.

Overall, I loved the story! Diana and Elana are mesmerizing. I like how neither one outshines the other in terms of how loyal they are to one another. I wished someone would make this story into a movie because visually, I'm sure I would enjoy the battle and scenes even more plus there is a life lesson to be shared with many. I'm def getting Fires of Aggar!
Absolutely nothing could have made this better. The characters were cliche and underdeveloped. The plot was lacking. The story as a whole was boring, drawn out, and lacked excitement of any kind.
Anything but this.
J. Evans is possibly one of the worst narrators. I found myself falling asleep listening to her drone on and on. Even though the story was awful, a narrator can sometimes liven things up a bit. There was hardly any variation in character. This is the first audiobook I couldn't finish.
All of them.
I always try to give authors a chance. I hate leaving bad reviews but I have no idea how this even got published at all. Then, add one of the worst narrators and you get the worst book I've ever encountered. I always try to finish a book, even if I don't like it but I couldn't even make it to the end of this one. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one. It is not worth the money.
They are equal. Classic.
I have never reviewed before in my years of being a lurking customer. But to see this on Audible is incredible. The reader did a fantastic job, bringing to life characters I have loved for years. I hope that all of Chris Anne's books will make it to Audible.
it was an amazing book, though it was sometimes a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and sometimes the characters made me wanna pull my hair. So basically the characters where well made and where very VERY realistic with their approach to romance and misunderstandings. This book gets a 10/10 from me.
I enjoyed the story. The writing was decent and I felt Wolfe did a good job with the world building.
