    "Not impressed."
    Any additional comments?

    Although not exclusively, I do read a lot of crime novels and I am perplexed by the good ratings this one received. There are a lot of good crime fiction authors out there but this is not one. I do make allowances for a novel considering the fact that it is entertainment and does not need to be completely realistic. But this Novel was just bad. The characters are improbable and inconsistent. The dialog is unrealistic and cheesy. The actions of the characters are erratic. The overall idea of the story is good; the rest is just not good. I can imagine that if you are a male seeking a fantasy fulfilling story of a rich tough guy that can have his cake and eat it too and do not care much about the literature value, this is a story for you.

    "Lucas Davenport Continues to Thrive"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow Prey to be better than the print version?

    One of the best in the Prey series. Subtle yet compelling and with a suspenseful plot. Richard Ferrone is a forceful and very listenable narrator.

    "Prey series is awesome"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow Prey the most enjoyable?

    I like the whole series and was only able to find an abridged version of this book until I found your website. Richard Ferrone is one of the best author/reader out there, along with Scott Brick.


    What other book might you compare Shadow Prey to and why?

    The whole series is good.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Lucas Davenport

    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "mildly entertaining but hokey"

    I have loved John Sandford but this one was pretty lame. Predictable romance that was very melodramatic and a convoluted story that I really didn't find compelling.

    "Shadow Prey"

    I'd forgotten that I read this book as soon as it was released because I so enjoyed the Rules of Prey novel. Richard Ferrone makes an audio book so intriguing that it's rather difficult to turn it off. Thanks so much for this experience it was just as enjoyable the second time around as it was when I initially read it! 🙂

    "Too many Characters

    "

    As usual, Ferone was great. story was not one of the best of the "Prey" series which I love.
    I find it confusing at times, switching between Characters. One of my all time favorite
    authors.

    Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    "Richard Ferrone is Perfect!"

    Lucas Davenport and his friends continue to develop well. We see glimpses of the future relationships in this early novel. What I liked best was how perfectly Ferrone and Sandford sync. It is as though Sandford wrote his books with Ferrone in mind. He builds the suspense perfectly and allows the darkness of the mystery to settle upon the listener.
