    "I am HOOKED!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It starts off by gripping my interest and not letting go! I definitely recommend this book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Prey?

    The climax - the final showdown between good and evil - blew my mind. I was so nervous for Lucas and his family! I could barely breathe! Thank goodness for the safe!!


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

    Lucas - he has a cool, alpha male "swag" about him, and I can feel it through Richard Ferrone's voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beginning of the book was heartbreaking. Without giving away much, my heart ached for the poor girl. She was a human being...somebody's daughter. All I could think to myself is 'She will never be the same.'


    Any additional comments?

    I have purchased the next two books in this series! I love the Prey series thus far and plan to listen to each and every book!!!

    "So happy to "stumble" across this series."
    If you could sum up Shadow Prey in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, captivating and enthralling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was exciting and felt very plausible. It was a fresh breath that you followed both the police and the killers thoughts. The Main character Lucas Davenport, he's clever, intelligent, tough and a ladies man, but also a man who has has flaws and is hard to figure out. Well written characters that are not one dimensional.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Richard Ferrone has a very cool dry voice, he makes the book come to life. I really enjoyed listening to him tell the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the things that made me go woah, didn't see that one comming.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hooked to this series, only greif is that some of the books aren't available in my country.

    "Is there a point?"
    What disappointed you about Shadow Prey?

    Lack of focused story line.


    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Better character development, improve flow of story line.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Richard Ferrone?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Is there a point here or is the author being paid by the word?


    Any additional comments?

    This book has an interesting story to tell, but that is the end of what's good about this book.The storyline wanders in and around without really developing characters and never seems to get to the point. Never ending meaningless dialogue and a disjointed storyline made this book tedious and no worth finishing.

    Live on edge of National Forest with lake, birds & wild animals. No more perfect place to indulge life-long love of reading.

    "Social Commentary or Thriller?"

    As I listened to this book I was struck by the moral ambiguity running through the main story line. The good guys did some pretty bad stuff and the bad guys had a theme of righteous vindication. In the meantime the thrills, and sometime chills, came frequently. This book has pace and action worked together very skillfully.

    The characters are outlined clearly enough that you know what they're about and understand their actions and reactions. They are, however, without much depth. The narrator can be hard to get used to as you start the book but pretty quickly becomes the spirit and appropriate characterization for all the nuances contained in this story.

    The author's final comments at the end of the story made it all clear (at least to me). This was his 2nd book and the 2nd in an intended series. As he wrote it he became torn between writing a thriller vs writing a social commentary. The commentary is based in large part on the victimization of native Americans over time in this country. A plight that is still quite relevant today. Once he finished the book he realized that he couldn't have it both ways, tore it apart, and rewrote it to be a thriller. From this listener's perspective the social commentary theme is still in the underlying tone of the story. Therefore my sense of moral ambiguity.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying this series and would love to give this book 5 stars across the board. My 4 stars on the story are strictly based on the unresolved ambiguity...no neat bows were offered to wrap it all up. That's ok by me, I'm on to the next story in the series.

    If you like cop/detective thrillers, then this series is for you!
