    "Good story, bad narration"

    Ms. Ashley created a unique take on the paranormal genre. The "shifters" were created by faery. They freed themselves from the fae only to end up corralled into shabby towns and treated as second rate citizens by humans. I am enjoying this series even though it is not in my top 5.

    Unfortunately, I think I would be enjoying it more if I was reading it. It's hard for me to say this, but the narration is truly awful. The reading is staccato. There is no rhythm. Sentences are stressed in the wrong place so that the listener has to stop and think about what the words mean instead of relying on the narrator to embue them with the correct feeling. She "loses" the "voices" so that the listener gets a bit of a shock thinking "...wait, wasn't the heroine talking? ...oh, she still is, only she sounds like the hero now..." All in all, its a difficult listen entirely due to the poor narration.

    "AN ENCHANTING & ENJOYABLE SHAPE-SHIFTING ADVENTURE"

    Phew, I'm exhausted after this listen about very primal alpha male shifters (check out the cover picture girls) and good/evil fae all battle it out either against each other or stand together as pack fight pack and fae fight fae. Along with this is the touching, gentle yet sizzling romance as Sean (the Guardian with a big magic sword - come on minds out of the gutter - literally a real sword again check out the cover pic) battles his mating urge to change a mating 'bond of convenience' with Andrea into a true love bond because they both feel the strong pull to mate as the attraction grows and heats between them. There were sex scenes but they weren't too graphic in any way.

    It's been a long time since I listened to book 1 Pride Mates so I couldn't remember the storyline at all but this didn't much detract from my enjoyment of this listen so I guess it could be a stand alone listen. however, why deprive yourselves - if you haven't already downloaded the 1st book then I would start there, follow with this one, and sit back and savour an entertaining paranormal tale which, despite being a wee bit slow in parts, is an enjoyable listen. The shape shifting community is made up of warm, interesting and friendly characters that are ready to open their doors and let you see their lives, loves and world.

    Can't wait for books 3 Wild Cat and 4 Mate Claimed which were both published in 2012 so come on Audible where are they ?? and they will be followed by book 5 Tiger Magic later this year.

    Worth a credit? A good paranormal romance series to get your claws into which was definitely worth a credit so it's a YES from me.

    "Loved the story but..."

    I love this series and cannot wait for the rest. But the spoiler was the horrible attempt at an Irish accent, it sounded like a cross between weird Irish and Australian. The big Alpha shifters sounded high pitched and squeeky as if they were talking through a wedgie! Do the producers/directors Never listen to the end result?? Surely its better to leave out the accent all together? After listening to Ian Ruane narrate The Druid Stone using a beautiful Irish brogue this was pure torture. Its a shame how the narrators can ruin a perfectly great set of stories. I will get the rest of the series should audible do them as they are great. The narration was OK when the Morrisey's were not talking. I hope she drops the accents next time.

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "The worst narration I have ever heard!!"

    This was probably one of the worst narration I have ever listened to. The narrator completely destroyed the book. The main male character is Irish. She made him sound souther/ Australian. If she wasn't doing that the other character were depicted as being a child. It was just bad.

    It made me so frustrated because the narrator of the first book was so good and then we get this one. Ans she narrates the rest of the series.

    With that being said I will NOT be getting the rest of the series. As for the book it was good and very well thought out. I just wish I could enjoy it more but, the narrator was just that bad. Due yourselves a favor and not get this book or any book that she narrates for.

    "Totally loving this Shifter Series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend to others who like this genre. I am so intrigued by the "segration" of the shifters from "normal" humans. The storyline introduces the Fae who helped the normal people corral theshifters and also look down on the shifters who were forced out 20 years ago to be treated like second class citizens. The concept of Shifter Towns is reminiscent to "separate but equal" but worse. The can't have up to smart phones or computers and the collar trials and tribulations makes me rewind scenes to listen again. I like that they have such good attitudes about how they live.


    What other book might you compare Primal Bonds to and why?

    I really enjoyed other books about "supernaturals" from Thea Harrison, Karen Marie Moning and Sarah McCarty. Laurel K Hamilton and Charlaine Harris also address "human"s versus supernaturals in a fantastic way. Romance abounds, protective males, accepting women, just loving it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she meets her father.


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

    When she finds out she can heal wounds with her man.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next one.

    "Great book!"

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I didn't want to stop listening and finished it very quickly. I will definitely be getting the first book in the series and any other books that come out.

    "Good... Like the Sword!!!"

    I like it. Good follow up. Finally we find out all about that sword. We meet Sean in book 1 and now it's his turn to find love. I was so scared he was gonna have to challenge Liam or something. Thank goodness! I love the fact that his mate is half-fae! Ok...but her dad sure was creepy in the beginning... I hope they figure out a way to break those collars too.

    Narration was good. Dukehart did great. I actually thought I was listen to Odom again...very similar Irish accent for Sean and Liam.

    Good buy if your following the series. Just wait for credit if your just getting started.
