All of the characters were very strong. There were no weeping willows.
No, there were two main character groups and I had to rewind because I was confused on which group I was hearing.
It was an interesting variation on the shifter idea and written in a mystery format
Yes. It is a great shifter book from an up and coming writer.
The interaction between Autumn and Blake was awesome.
More life to the characters
murder, romance,government cover up, shifters and more. this was a refreshing take on a genre that seems to be overdone. It held me from the beginning and I hope this is just the beginning of whats to come.
Good storyline, characters, and narration. This is actually a serial not a series. In ths shifter world, humans are unaware shifters exist, except a gov agency that wants to create an army of expendable soldiers. Autumn is a genius they hope will find the key. Unaware of the torture of shfters she doesn't know exist, she is drawn into the effort to save them.
Love listening to audios.
I really enjoyed listening to the Audio Version rather then actually reading the book because I really got immersed into the story.
The story was so different the other "shifters"stories. Instead of being born a shifter After your born a spirit shifter will choose you. The younger you are when this happens the stronger a connection you will have with your spirit shifter. Your spirit shifter (wolf, bear, panther, eagle, etc) is able to travel ahead of you and send back images to you.
Teri in my opinion was a great narrator. There are some narrators that just do not get the characters tone or the feel of them. But Teri really hit on each character.
When Autumn went to see her father and he treated her like she was interfering with his time. I hope we get a better view of Autumns relationship with her father.
I looked for book two Saving Autumn but not in Audio yet, I will be buying it when it has been competed.
This may be a good beginning to a series but the narrator...not so much. Her monotone and lack of voice inflection during what should have been emotion laden dialogue nearly put me to sleep.
Love me some creepy, scarey, suspenseful, thrilling reading - when discovered I could hear some of my favorites read TO me...Audible had me!
The story was somewhat unique to the shifter/romance books I've listened to in the past. The writer tried for a government conspiracy/detective style story within regular lust filled love/hate relationship between hot shifter and delicate beautiful smart human story.
It could have been much better in audio format if the narrator gave the characters any personality. Even when characters were arguing, the voices were low and calm. "what.are.you.doing...come.on.get.in.the.car..."
Irritating- but the actual story behind the voices was interesting enough to get me through to the end.
I purchased it as a whispersync companion audio, so it was 1.99 (plus the price of the kindle version). I do not think it is worth a credit or full price.
Books speak to the soul.
This book gives a unique spin on how a shifter forms. The story is the basic good against evil. How far should we go in research before it becomes like Frankenstein's story? Who is the monster, the created or the creator? However, this book has nothing to do with Frankenstein but brought to mind the morality of that particular story. It is a shifter romance.
Maybe. I really enjoyed the book, but I'm not sure I'd listen to it again unless I needed a "review" prior to reading another book in the series. So many books, so little time!
Toby. He's not a main character, but I really enjoyed his teenage awkwardness.
I thought she did a wonderful job reading the book. She really brought the characters to life. I love to be able to listen to a book during long drives or long sessions of laundry folding.
Lots of cringing when the shifters were being tortured.
Story line matches book. Excellent voice of narrator.
Her voice is amazing. Book hooks you from beginning to end.
