Publisher's Summary

How long can you lie to yourself before it all comes apart?

In 2152, the avian race is on Earth looking for something stolen from them decades ago - their genetics. At the center of the search lies the Rural Republic; a small backwards farming country with high hopes of military domination and a penchant for illegal bioengineering.

19-year-old Junco Coot is the daughter of the Rural Republic's ranking commander. She's the most foul-mouthed, wildly unpredictable and ruthless sniper the Rural Republic has ever trained. But when her father's death sparks a trip into forbidden places, she triggers events that will change everything she knows to be true.

As an elite avian military officer, Tier's mission is to destroy the bioengineering projects, kill Commander Coot's daughter, and return home immediately. There's just one problem. Junco isn't who she claims to be.

With no one to trust, not even herself, Junco must confront the secrets of her past and accept her place in the future, or risk losing herself completely.

    I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)

    "Definitely NOT a YA book, but a kicka** ride"

    The protagonist is foul-mouthed, cigar-chomping, kick** military sniper whose father just died. She is on the run from her own emotion (after the funeral) and then an avian, a winged alien. Throughout her journey, we come to learn much about her violent world, her disturbed past and begin to realize her bad attitude overshadows a few insecurities. There is a lot of action, although interspersed with some tedious data-loaded conversations. I think the next volume in the series will be greatly improved as hopefully the author will not feel compelled to repeat the voluminous information.

    Despite, the occasional dull bit, the book is faced-paced romp through an intriguing universe. The big plus is Junco is not your typical teenage heroine. Highly recommend for any sci-fi fan tired of the usual teenage angst-ridden worlds of vampires, werewolves and fae.

    The narrator does a good job with the various characters.

    Due to the language, not recommended for a young adult audience.

    Story
    "Kickass woman rocks!"

    Junco is complex. Her relationship with Tier the Avian is intense. The world that the drama is alternative, but very believable. I had read the book before I listened. I has a heads up that it is violent and bloody__but never gratuitous. It fits the world. I don't want to say more and spoil it.

    I enjoy a narrative that when a voice is flat as stated in the book that it how it is played. the male voices are distinct which is a good trick for a women performer. I just bought the next two in the series just before I wrote this review.

    Enjoy. You are in for a trip.

    "Kick A** my type of girl"
    What made the experience of listening to Clutch the most enjoyable?

    besides the story itself or the writer of who I'm a huge fan... I loved hearing all the names I may not pronounce correctly


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Clutch?

    Learning Junco's back story once I heard that I Was Hooked


    What does Sienna Beckman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing the audio makes you feel like your there.. I think you get the true emotions in audio


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book it's filled so much action, a bit of romance, and one kick a** girl discovering who she is


    Any additional comments?

    I’m a H U G E fan of JA Huss writing I have read everything she has written but this series. I’ve never really read anything sci-fi before not really into sci-fi tv series you get my point. I kept telling myself I need to read this series so I bought the eBook & audio. It didn’t take me to long to get into the story, the characters, typical JA Huss style suck you and leave you questioning everything and wanting More.

    Junco “I’m the scariest b*tch on the block” she may confused about a few things, but she can fight, she’s the one you want on your side, you don’t want her against you. She’s fearless.

    “I’m your hero, I’m your hero, I’m your hero, I’m your hero, I’m your hero.”

    Tier is just... You really need to experience him yourself.
    I wish I would have started this series sooner. I found something different that I really enjoyed.

    "Loved this book!!"

    What an amazing story! Loved Junco and Tier. The narrator was fantastic. I hope she narrates the rest of the series. Cannot wait to start the next book in the series to find out what happens to Junco next. I highly reccomend this story if you like sci fi, action and suspense!

    Story
    "Questionable at best"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The main character is lauded as a badass by many reviewers. However she has her agency taken from her so many times in the first couple of hours. Repeatedly having her head messed with against her will by the male lead.

    In addition to being frequently being injured and maimed said injuries are just brushed away as trivial by the male lead as well, The treatment of, what started out to be a thoroughly independent and interesting character just led me to check out before even finishing the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Huss again?

    Maybe


    What does Sienna Beckman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Accents I guess, her performance was good, but mired by awful plot


    Do you think Clutch needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope
