    l loved the entire story. I especially liked Salem's character.

    Story
    "Great story if you can get past the voice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow's Claim to be better than the print version?

    I have read all of Kresley Cole's other novels by paperback. I can honestly say that I liked them better. The story was good but it took me a bit to remember what happen in her previous book Lothaire. I wish that some of the other characters that were so dynamic and funny from other books would have made an appearance. I know this is a different series but Nix is so funny but said nothing in this book. Overall I liked this story and look forward to more to come. Information was easy enough to follow but I am glad that I read all of her other books so that I had a better idea of some of the character's roles (demon, horde, Valkyrie, Nix etc). That is the one thing about audio books, you cannot go back to the front easily to reference definitions.


    What other book might you compare Shadow's Claim to and why?

    I would compare this book to Sherrilyn Kenyon & Dianna Love Belador Series. This is also a series about other worlds and deceptions. As well has Sherrilyn Kenyon's League Series.


    What aspect of Robert Petkoff’s performance would you have changed?

    Where to begin..... I don't know if it was me or if others feel the same way, but the narrator's version of Bettina's voice drove me crazy. She sounded like the character off of The Family Guy when Stewie pretends to be a girl. I think I like the fact that when I read the books I can make the characters less whimpering. Also his narration of Trehan also seemed like the guy was in pain every time he spoke. His voice did not change even if it was a tender moment or a battle scene.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Shadow Claim.... He comes undone. I am not very creative to I don't really know.


    Any additional comments?

    In the end I don't know if I will listen to the audiobook or read the paper book. I guess it depends upon the narrator.

    Story
    "Lothaire's Shadow"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadow's Claim the most enjoyable?

    I love the author and narrator!!! However, this book seemed so much like Lothaire's story that it felt like a shadow of what I have already read and listen to.


    What other book might you compare Shadow's Claim to and why?

    Lothaire


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    Lothaire - like that he's an oddity


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it took longer than expected (about 2 weeks)


    Any additional comments?

    I still loved it! Just wished it was not the same.

    "Best reader I've heard!"

    I have one thing to say about Robert Petkoff reading these books....WOW!!! He is the perfect person to read these characters. Rarely do you come across an actor who can not only play all male characters very convincingly but also play female characters and make you forget it's a male reading the character. Not to mention the accents he does are spot on! He makes listening to these great stories so enjoyable I find myself getting lost in them. I'd like to hear him read Christine Feehan's books as well...he'd be perfect for those too!

    "Not My Usual Kind of Read....But its Hot! Hot! Hot"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't typically purchase a romance novel, especially one that gives such graphic details (graphic to me, remember, I don't usually read this stuff). I am now reconsidering why I do not!
    Kresley Cole definitely grabbed my attention with this book and Robert Petkoff did an excellent job at narrating. The only problem I have is when a male tries to speak like a female, it takes a little getting used too, and with all the sexual activity in this book it distracted me away from that little peev.
    I give this book a 5 star rating on everything! I listened to it twice and I definitely plan on buying more of Kresley's books!

    "Perfect Author and Narrator!"

    I am a huge Kresley Cole fan, and I loved this book! This book is a great start to the new series The Dacians; Realm of Blood and Mist. Trehan is a hot master assassin who is letheal, confident and totally delicious. He will fight in a tournment to win the princess Bettina. The characters are very interesting and the book has some good twists. The fight sceans were good. The romance is very hot and intense. Robert Petkoff is a super star narrator - he totally rocks the male characters and he does a good job on the femaile characters. I can't wait for the next book in the series. The book was totally worth a full credit!

    "The Narrator Robert Petkoff DEAD ON with accents!"

    Story VERY GOOD! and the Narrator was DEAD ON with the accents...he had to do many from male to female to scottish to british to back woods voice and it was extremely great to listen to someone that read with sooooo much emotion that maybe the characters did have per the author....Loved it and recommend all of Kresley Cole's stories...but this one was really different and good and NOT predictable...

    "Couldn't get enough!"
    What did you love best about Shadow's Claim?

    There is never a dull part, keeps my interest. Love the characters and the passion between the two main characters.


    Would you recommend Shadow's Claim to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, every woman wants a man who would do anything for them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's hard to pick a favorite but I would have to choose the bathing scene. Betina had to bath him and couldn't stop staring at his naked body. It's was very funny.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
