A lover of the printed and spoken word.
The story is very good and well written. However, the narrator leaves something to be desired. Clayton doesn't sound southern at all. Jeremy sounds old and dull instead of intelligent but reserved. The 4 stars are for the wonderful story, sadly I would give the narrator a 2.
I love this series, and I loved this book. That said, I must warn the avid audio book fan that they should stop now and not waste a credit. Listen to the preview; it's awful. I tried listening to this and I lasted about 10 minutes before going to the book store and buying it in paperback. So, continue with the series, but don't torment yourself with the flat reading.
I love listening to series. The only thing that makes it trying is narrators changing or even staying the same when they should change. By this book it was clear, Aasne Vigesaa is Elena and even the best Clay. Nell Canning is Aunt Ruth, and Laural Merlington is Paige Winterbourne. She just sounds too "wholesome" to give me the feeling I get from Elena.
Other than that, the story is excellent. Love the wolves!!
I miss the wolfpack. I miss the action. I miss the change and the hunt. Yet another disappointing book in the story of the wolves. What a sad turn of such wonderful characters from the first novel, "Bitten". It all began with the introduction of too many Supernaturals in "Stolen". There is even less wolf action in this book, the story takes you on a wild goose chase but with no real satisfying results, a lot of boring dialogue and yet more boring supernatural characters I do not care about. I was hoping the wolves would be running around in Victorian England, but alas no, they are mostly in Toronto. In addition, the main characters are no longer real, just more one liners and more sarcasm. I miss the wolf behaviors and the feeling the first book gave you, of wildness, nature and love, bonding and gore! The narrator doesn't help as all the voices sound the same and Elena sounds like a younger Bea Arthur from the 50's. I suppose I will read Frozen to see what happens to Elena and Clay, but I won't have high expectations.
IN THIS BOOK WE ARE BACK WITH THE PACK. ELENA IS STRUGGLING WITH BEING PREGNANT AND BEING TREATED LIKE GLASS. THEY ALL GET MIXED UP WITH A JACK THE RIPPER LETTER THAT CONTAINS A PORTAL AND BRINGS ABOUT ALL KINDS OF MAYHEM.
GREAT SERIES FOR ADULTS WHO LOVE THE SUPERNATURAL.
