The jaws of winter are clamping down on the city of Halifax. As the light recedes, new terrors arise.
Months after the war with Borland and his vicious were-brood, Kirk and Morris are experiencing curious after-effects. They're stronger, faster, and no longer vulnerable to the sharp sting of silver. There is one concern, however. They're forever hungry, and nothing they eat provides the same nourishment as what they consumed on the island of Newfoundland. And when a mysterious stranger rides into Moses Morris's territory wishing to hunt, the were-warden knows the visitor isn't after deer.
The ultimate race begins as Kirk and Morris lead a host of wardens to put down one of their own, before the next full moon, when an entire city will be subjected to a voracious appetite.

Loved the book, the wolves and the villain, lots of blood
The descriptions of the villain, I could see him in my mind's eye, scary stuff. A real monster.
All of them.
The mall scene with the police team.
Can't wait for the next book.
I like intelligent well written science fiction with flawed or developed characters, Frank Herbert, Frederick Pohl, and Alaistar Reynolds.
The two protagonists are very relatable and likeable. Mad that I have to wait for the 3rd story.
Much better then the first one, in my opinion. If you are in indecision about the first book, please, stick around, because the second book worth it all and more!

Once again I have a confession to start with, I have a bit of a man crush on Mr Keith C Blackmore. His 'Mountain Man' series and his first free title 'The Hospital' got me absolutely hooked on the zombie genre. Now hundreds of dollars later I am still consuming zombie titles faster than a fast zombie doing something very fast! But now he has really pushed me over the edge, he has forced me out into another genre. Lucky for me this new genre has some slim pickings, and hopefully won't cost me as much. The 'werewolf' genre! Seriously Mr Blackmore, I can just give you my bank details and you can take my cash as soon as I get paid.
The first book in this series left me hanging and I feared I would not get to see the second one. So imagine my joy when I see book 2 had been released. I was even happier when I noticed Sean Runnette was again the narrator. Sean's voice is the perfect match for every one of Mr Blackmore's created characters. It seems like a match made in heaven, except for one thing. Sean Runnette in my mind is a very slow talking narrator. I have always found myself speeding up his narrated titles. Sometimes up to 1.5x speed. However, in this case the story is that good I would have sped it up anyway because I just wanted to know more and I wanted to know now!
However, with the speed of the narration in mind and with the shortish length of this title (9hours) your dollar per hour ratio is affected. It might be important if you are on a budget. You will easily blow your cash on a title you will listen to in one sitting!
I found this one even better than the first and look forward to what happens in the future with this series. If only Mr Blackmore could figure out a way to introduce Gus from 'Mountain Man' to 'Breeds'
This fatman could not get enough of this one. I will give this one my two thumbs up a big grin and a stupid sounding 'heeeeeeeeeeeeeey' (fonzie style)... and please Mr Blackmore let there be a third in the series, and let it be fast!
I'm not going to repeat myself from Book 1, 5 stars across the board. I'll be looking for Book 3.
"Excellent but I want more"
The first book was a pleasant surprise, but the second went by too fast. Can't wait for the next round, just hope it is longer.. Sound like my wife now.
"even better than the 1st!"
loved this story. great action. getting to really like Morris + Kirk.
if you loved the first, or havnt listened yet. Do it!
Cant wait for the next book truly outstanding only bad thing is the fact i have to wait for the next book
Great continuation from the first book, however I would have like the inclusion of the main character from the first book.
I do hope book 3 will be published following on from this book, with the inclusion of the characters that have been introduced.
Thank you for a good series so far
"another very good book"
following on from the previous book we learn more about the 2 wardens . I enjoyed this book and welcomed the number of new characters. it's a shame it's not very long, it kept me listening all the way through, I couldn't believe it finished as the ending was quite abrupt and I was waiting for something else to happen !
"Good read, first one was better"
Thoroughly enjoyable gritty werewolf novel. Has a distinct "middle of the trilogy" feel to the story, which makes it a little weaker than the first, but the performance is great, the characters lifelike, and its well worth reading if you enjoyed the first one.
"Another gripping book"
Another gripping book, once started I couldn't stop listening.
Unusually different from were books.
Narration by Sean runette was brilliant as usual and I am eagerly awaiting the next book. Love Morris' character, hard moody male and Kirk of course would like to have heard more of Ross . Maybe in next book.
Definitely worth the credit.
Only tried this because Sean Runnette is my new favourite reader and the gamble paid off big style. Fantastic story and some brilliant characters with great turn of phrases - there's gore and laughs aplenty. Can't wait for the next instalment.
"Well worth one of my valuable credits."
I spent quite a bit of time searching through Audible SciFi titles for a new audiobook and rather reluctantly thought I'd give Breeds Book 1 a chance. 10 minutes in and I was feeling so glad I had! The author depicted the snowy wilderness of Halifax so well I could see it as I listened. The subject has been somewhat overdone in recent years but within this storyline was both intriguing and different though quite graphic at times! I had downloaded Book 2 well before the end of Book 1 and listened to it straight afterwards.
I was sorry when Book 2 finished as was engrossed and enjoying the story so much. Disappointed there's no Book 3 yet but realise a real talent cannot be hurried or forced so I await Book 3 with bated breath!
yes, as i found it compelling and enjoyable
the story line was well written and thought through
yes, yes, and yes
bring on book 3 soon please
