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.
Home is where my books are.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This was not one of my favorites. It is a story of a girl (young woman) who is trying to find herself. Of course it turns out (potential spoiler alert) she's the queen of an underground group of critters masquerading as humans but have various powers and all the famous people of history are of her new kind. This group is not explored much other than some discussion on its backward and out of date laws wherein women are somewhat repressed. Women are repressed dispite not having any kings ever, only queens. The primary story mover is the love story between her and "the prime" (leader) of a sect of the group.
I felt like I was reading a teenage summer-time love novel. It was unfortunate for this since the world created has so much potential for exciting story lines. Being a middle-aged man, I am clearly not the intended audience for 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.
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.
