Don't let the animal mutations throw you. They are morbid, it's true, but this book is more of a tale of recovery from human suffering than anything else. It's a love story, of two souls kept apart by a betrayal, recovering from abuses, both mental and physical, that will forever haunt them unless they give in to the only one who can ever heal them - our Savior, Jesus Christ. The characters in this tale are multi-layered and engaging. The suspense and intrigue continues all the way through. You may figure out "who dunnit" before the end but you won't want to stop listening until the last "page" has been turned. An excellent read by both the author and narrator. Enough action and drama to keep any listener engaged.
I must admit: I only bought this book because the narrator is Kirsten Potter. I absolutely love her performance.
The story is ok, in it a bit of romance, thrill and crime, and a few laughs. But overall it hasn't the quality of a great thriller - too many cliches. It is still enjoyable, though.

As usual, I recommend that you read the publisher's summary. I try not to write spoilers.
I did listen to the whole book. It was engaging enough to pass commute time, but didn't really have the plot twists that I like nor did it leave me thinking about it for a few days afterward.
Once the main characters and their relationships are introduced, the outcome is obvious. There are a variety of small town interactions, some romance, some police matters, and the overall "mystery."
Kirsten Potter, as always, did an admirable job of narrating.
