I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
I have already started reading Book 2 of this series because it is narrated by one of my favorites, Angela Dawe. I enjoy her voice alot more. I loved the storyline in Shadow's Edge and the details that were added to every description. J.T. helped the reader imagine this breathtaking world and envision yourself within each character.
I am already reading Book 2.
Justine reads at a very slow pace. She drags out every word until it is excruiating painful to listen to another word.
Nothing, I think the romance between the hero and the heroine is perfect. It's unbalanced, it's give and take, it's angst, it just perfect.
I Love reading and listening to books has made it a lot easier to continue with my very busy schedule and still indulge in my hobby!
No, Great poetry style writing, but this book literally could be taken from the Shana Abe Drakon series. So instead of Dragons we have panthers, but both are set in England, both have factions scattered around the world, both are in hiding for the colony's protection, and both deal with the premise of bringing someone back to the fold. For as well written as it was I wished the story was not so similar. Don't get me wrong I will most likely purchase her next book because she was a good writer, but I will just like to read something with less similarities from another author.
Justine Eyre is in a class of her own. I love her style or reading.
Not really, since it seem so familar.
I'm not usually into the "paranomal" reading but the narrator voice captivated me in an instant and I had to know what the story was about. The lovely voice of Leander, Morgan and Christian. This is a must read and I cant wait for the second book... I'm absolutely thrilled for the continuation
The transformation of Jenna into panther after decovering her father's grave
She kept me intrigued about what would happen next I love the enuncation of the different characters the french, the brazilian and my favorite Leander
Leander busting into the room to save Jenna and Daria from the clutches of the enemies
Please hurry with the release of the second book I am very excited to see what happens between Leander and Jenna, of course Morgan, Christian and how is Daria after her traumatic experience
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This was a great shifter story. I love the fact that the half-shifter becomes queen. I like the whole idea of the story. I simply love shifter books... This one was good one. I like the angst between the two main characters, and the smex was also good. There wasn't much, but plenty of angst... maybe 3 scenes I think... but they were good and nicely place throughout the story. I am excited to read book 2.
Great Narration, Justine Eyre is an awesome narrator... Her male voices are great.
Good credit... I think for the price and the story, a buy isn't necessary... waiting for your credit or a sale... is a good idea on this one.
Of all the books I own, I most love the ones that paint word movies in my mind.
There is a point sometimes, when listening to Justine Eyre, when her voice begins to become painful to listen to. There is the growl and emotive whiny tinge at the end of every sentence that one expects, but with some books it's so pronounced that it sounds like sub-vocal claws on a chalk board, and that completely detracts from the story.
And when you get to that point, it's over.
I really enjoyed reading this series on my kindle, and when I saw that I could buy this book for $1.99, I took a chance. Well, it's been so painful I've been listening to it for 15 minutes at a time, or less.
I wish I had my $2 back.
This was a bit too wordy for me. It's important to give clear descriptions but this author goes overboard to the point that it just becomes wordy and drawn out. Story line was good but nothing that hasn't been already done before in many other books. I doubt I will purchase the following books in the series.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
This is the start of a new series and one I'll possibly never forget. I had the smug attitude of the Alpha to the flippancy of Morgan, not to mention all the multitude of talants Jenna brought into the mix. I CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR MOVE VOLUMES OF THIS SERIES TO COME OUT!!!!!!!!
The part I liked best about this story was where it initially started out with the tribe alpha, who was so full of hisself , discovering that this half-blood named Jenna had the power to reign him in. Not with just her mystical powers, but with her courage, her tenderness and her insatiable way of connecting with others.
My favorite scene was when Jenna discovered she was in love with the alpha.while floating in vapor form over the jungle.
When it was discovered that Jenna wasn't just the Alpha's mate, but her races queen. When she could close her eyes and tell where every member of her tribe were located!
I loved this, love the characters of Leander and Jenna! I did think Jenna was a little hard on Leander at times and maybe a little too stubborn and prideful but at the same time I admired her strength. They seemed to get their wires crossed and misunderstand each other alot but that was mostly Jenna's fault cause she lied to him a lot trying to cover up what she felt for him and resist him. Although he could have been clearer about how he felt as well but he was trying not to push anything and make sure everything that happens between them is her decision.
I felt bad for Christian and Morgan too a little. I mean Christian trying for Jenna when he knew his brother was in love with her was unfair but he is kinda a sweet guy so I hope he gets his own story where he finds his own mate. Morgan annoyed me a bit as much as she made me feel bad for her. I liked her spirit and her sarcasm but again I thought she was unfair to Leander. I agreed with her that it was unfair how women were treated in their society but it wasn't Leander's fault and he couldn't change the law but he did do something that obviously none of the other Alphas would do or have done. He voted her on the assembly, the deciding vote and he did say he thought her worth ten of each of the men who voted against her. Maybe though he should have mentioned that once or twice and she wouldn't have made the mistake she did. Leander wasn't the chauvinist she assumed and accused him of being. If he was he wouldn't have pointed out to Jenna that she had the power to do what he couldn't, change Ikati law and bring it into the 21rst century, making it less oppressive. I'm glad the next book will be hers so we can see how she grows and if she gets past her hatred of men and her race. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!
I'm addicted to romance novels. I specifically like dark, alpha, arrogant, dominant, over the top, aggressive, jealous male characters.
On a scale from 1 - 10, 10 being the best, I'd give this book a 5. I love paranormal were-shifter type books but I couldn't get into this book at all. I tried to give it a chance ... Made it to chapter 8 and then deleted it. For one, the narrator's voice didn't match the character. The character was a 25 year old female but the narrator sounded like someone's 80 yr old elderly grandma. The writing seems a bit poetic, like reading poetry. It was just off ... Also, since the setting was in England it would have been nice to hear a British English accent.This was the wrong book for me. I'm not really familiar with this author but I decide to try this book after reading her other series Sweet as Sin (Bad Habit - Book 1 & 2) .
I only made it to chapter 8. I don't have a favorite character
NO !! Narration was totally off balance. The voice didn't match the character. The character was a 25 year old female but the narrator sounded like someone's elderly grandma. Boring
I loved the story, the characters and pace of the book.. The only downside was the narrator... When she was doing a British accent it was terrible.. I was cringing at times but if u can ignore this, then it's a great book.
