    "Interesting storyline, boring narrator"
    Would you try another book from J. T. Geissinger and/or Justine Eyre?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. T. Geissinger? Why or why not?

    I am already reading Book 2.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Justine reads at a very slow pace. She drags out every word until it is excruiating painful to listen to another word.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    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.

    Story
    "Great Poetry Writing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    Justine Eyre is in a class of her own. I love her style or reading.


    Could you see Shadow's Edge being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really, since it seem so familar.

    Story
    "Gave me "Justine Ear""

    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.

    "Wow... great shifter book..."

    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.

    Story
    "Jenna saw the feral green-eyed stranger"
    What did you love best about Shadow's Edge?

    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


    What did you like best about this story?

    The transformation of Jenna into panther after decovering her father's grave


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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


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

    Leander busting into the room to save Jenna and Daria from the clutches of the enemies


    Any additional comments?

    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

    Story
    "Watch out for Jenna! # She is a Queen of a Woman!!"
    What did you love best about Shadow's Edge?

    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!!!!!!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Jenna discovered she was in love with the alpha.while floating in vapor form over the jungle.


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

    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!

    Where does Shadow's Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A great fast, mindless read. Just what you need to forget the regular day.


    What did you like best about this story?

    New storyline with new characters.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    Outstanding. Great voice.

    "Meh"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narration was distracting. There are many male characters, and the male voices weren't convincing at all. Especially on top of the English accent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story was okay, mostly a I love you - I hate you - woe is me kind of plot. I think I would have had more patience with the story had the narration been better.

    "The Crayola Crayon Box!"

    Okay where to begin with this review.... I know, the crayola box! I have never in my life read a book with with so many color descriptions. Not kidding, not exaggerating. I did a search for a few colors in my kindle iPad app.

    The Color Blue got 17 results, a few for example:"bottomless azure blue". "blue and charcoal shadows", "blue eyes, pale and rhuemy", "into the silvery blue horizon".

    The Color Honey/Honeyed got 18 results, a few for example: "honey bronzed skin", "thick honeyed waves", "cascading mass of honeyed blonde hair" "the sunlight poured like honey through the dormered windows".

    The Color Green got 52 results, a few for example: "his eyes were a bright laughing green", "hooded green eyes against warm umber skin", "eyes to a fierce, brilliant green shining and lucent like an emerald held in the light", " sharp points of burning fell green, flat and dark with animal rage" and so on and so on like I said 52 results for the color green.

    Color Emerald got 9 results, I guess emerald could fall under the green category giving Green a whopping 61 results.

    The Color Yellow, Charcoal and Orange only got 5 results each. Must not be favorite colors from the crayola box.


    The Color Amber got 13 results, a few for example: "the muscles in his abdomen, ambers and charcoals and deepest grays outlined planes and angles of his flesh", "her closed eyelids to burnished ambers and golds", " the candlelight glowed amber and honey against her hair", " contained gorgeous deep flecks of amber and citrine embedded that sparked fire into there cool emerald depths"

    And the most popular color for this book is Black with 86 results! At this point I don't need to give examples, I think everyone gets the idea of what I am talking about.

    I would rename this book The Crayola Crayon Box and be done with it.

    Its hard to enjoy a book when every other sentence contains a color description. So, no I did not like this book at all.

    As for the narration, its Justine Eyre so it was fine. Not the best not the worst. The men sound like men and that's always good.

    If you want to read about colors this is a great book if not then I suggest you skip it. it was extremely annoying (in a very dark cloudy blackish, greenish way).
