Publisher's Summary

Nineteen-year-old Dylan Shaw is possibly the most beautiful thing Malic Sunden has ever seen. After Malic rescues Dylan from an attack, Dylan makes it very clear that he is more than interested, but Malic won’t even consider sleeping with Dylan because of his age. Malic is sure he’s not good enough for Dylan, who has his whole life ahead of him, and can’t conceive of burdening Dylan with his secrets. But the darkness in Malic’s life won’t be denied, and soon Dylan is drawn into the dangerous paranormal world that is Malic’s reality. Malic fights tooth and nail to push Dylan away, to keep him safe… no matter that Dylan is the key to Malic’s strength and the only hope for his future. Book Two in the Warder series

    Story
    "Still the worst narrator... Ever. :("
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.


    What other book might you compare Tooth and Nail to and why?

    Well, not a book but a graphic novel. Yami no Matsuei. Why? Because of the paranormal elements and the fact that the characters seem modeled after Japanese manga/anime characters. Also maybe Megan Derr's Dance with the Devil series.


    What didn’t you like about Andrew Schwartz’s performance?

    Everything. It was just so, so, so frigging hard to listen to. It was just extremely unpleasant. No emotion, rushing through the narrative, weird intonation, misplaced or missing emphasis, lack of appropriate pauses, no differentiation between character voices which is important with this author because she doesn't put tags in a lot of her dialogue so unless you have the actual book/ebook open you'll find it almost impossible to discern who the hell is talking.


    Did Tooth and Nail inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to never, ever buy another audiobook narrated by Andrew Schwatrz.


    Any additional comments?

    Release this audiobook again with a better narrator and I'd be more than happy to buy it again.

    Story
    "Is the story good..I don't know I couldn't hear.."
    What would have made Tooth and Nail better?

    A different narrator! Maybe I'm spoiled because I just got done listening to Charles Carr narrate a book. Mr. Schwartz's voice dips so low when he's not reading dialogue to render him inaudible. His dialogue is forced. If you don't have a good narrator, you're really hurting the book. Both content, story line and narration have to be at least average to be enjoyable, but since I couldn't catch his mumbling most of the time, even after adjusting my bass and treble over and over, I flew up my hands in surrender.


    What could Mary Calmes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get a different narrator. I can't tell if the book was well done..I'm half way through it and don't know half of what's behind the closet. I think Mary and Andrew need to come out of the closet and tell us in loud emphatic words..


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andrew Schwartz’s performances?

    NO


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Seemed like the storyline was very workable


    Any additional comments?

    I'll give the author one more try as long as its a different person reading.

    "not happy with narrator"
    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator read the book too fast. At times it was hard to keep up with the story because it seemed like words were run together

    "Ok story, didn't like the narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator, his reading is passionless. He speaks very quickly without much pause when reading dialog, so at times it was difficult to follow who was speaking.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mary Calmes? Why or why not?

    Yes. The story was interesting enough. I liked the main character


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator


    Was Tooth and Nail worth the listening time?

    It is what I expected when I bought it, a gay harlequin novel.

    "Dreamspinner Readers are So Inconsistent!"

    This reader is awful. Where's the fire? He obviously can't wait to get out of the studio and speeds through the story a record pace. There is a way on my player to set the story to double time if I'm in a hurry... but this guy takes all emotion out of the story.

    Story
    "a little haphazard"
    Any additional comments?

    I felt like the action and elements of the story were a little haphazard. I remember feeling similarly about the first book of the series. It barely feels like a romance, considering Dylan isn't even in the book that much. There is no plot. It's just a bunch of random things happening to Malic.
    Dylan. Who is he, anyway? No, really. We know next to nothing about him, and he's as flat as paper. Come to think of it, Malic is pretty flat himself. He's a scary, muscle-man and that's about it. Dylan is a clingy, horny teenager. That's about it.

    "Worth a listen, but watch the price and get it on"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they can get it on sale. It is an entertaining listen and Mary Calmes is a very good author.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I often enjoy Ms. Calmes character develop and the formula she follows when writing. It is a little predictable, but I enjoy that. She leads you through a range of emotions and it is a fun ride.

    Story
    "Another good book by Mary Calmes"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tooth and Nail to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the book . . but I did enjoy the audible edition


    If you’ve listened to books by Mary Calmes before, how does this one compare?

    As good as all the others


    What does Andrew Schwartz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's good with the different "voices" of the characters


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really an extreme reaction . . . just thought it was good story about younger people not being taken seriously by older people.
