    "It Sucked Me In"

    Not something I would normally read but Audible suggested during a sale s I gave it a chance. DAM YOU AUDIBLE! When I finally got around to listening, I some how got sucked into it and was buying the series without my credits. I think the books are geared more to women than heterosexual men I have no problem saying I loved them. I always want to say Lorelei King deserves a lot of credit for making this a good book to listen too.

    "Glad I got past the ridiculous book cover"

    The writing in this is solid, the characters are interesting and not especially stereotypical. Too bad the book cover make this appear to be a harlequin-lite, I'm sure it turns off more than a few people like myself who wouldn't touch that kind of moronic fluff normally! A $4 sale made me willing to take a chance on this, glad I did!

    "Moon Called"

    Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!

    "Engaging story."

    I'm a fan of fantasy. This book, being mostly about werewolves, is a bit out of my general reading territory, but was definitely worth listening to. The characters are well done and interesting and the plot makes you want to keep listening. I definitely recommend it.

    "Captivating"

    I exercise while listening to audiobooks. I would extend my workouts just to hear what was happening next. This book is a supernatural mystery with a little romance thrown in. The characters and the supernatural world the author creates are interesting and three dimensional. I highly recommend this audiobook.

    "Fun book"

    My daughter recommended this book BUT then she said, "it is my vampire porn". That ALMOST prevented me from reading this. It ended up to be a very good recommendation and NO porn.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "Great narrator, average story"

    Setting : Contemporary, eastern Washington state
    Genre: Paranormal
    Narration is great because... Lorelei King
    I just did a long review of this book at Goodreads, and I don't know how to copy and paste on a mobile device, so please check out the reviews there. There are quite a few 5-star ratings, but I couldn't agree. The POV is 1st person singular. which isn't a bad thing in this genre. I see a lot of books written in that viewpoint done well. However, this one is pretty passive-voice, with more tell than show, and dialogue isn't as abundant as it could be to show who the people are. There are interruptions in the action to remind the reader of information already provided.
    The plot is a little thin, but I think the purpose of this book was to introduce conflicts and character backstory. If you plan on listening to this series (and it really is a series, needing to be done in order), this book gives a good foundation.

    I'm 30 years old, from the east coast of America, and my favorite books are realistic, but stretch the truth and the laws of physics.

    Story
    "Really wasn't for me"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator had a really Midwestern sounding accent, which is just unattractive to me personally, and didn't really fit the character. This was a woman who sounded middle aged reading as a character who was supposed to be younger, and also less "clean spoken suburban" than the narrator sounded. Narrator did not sound like a tough shape shifting auto mechanic who hangs with werewolves to me at all.
    Then, there's the book its self. So many cliches taken from other books, like the sookie Stackhouse series, that I couldn't get past it. It's like authors think they can't make up new mythology. So derivative. Also the flow and pace were somehow unsatisfying to me. I got most of the way through, quit for a few weeks, tried to pick it back up, then quickly remembered why I stopped reading in the first place and put it down again. If you're especially interested in werewolves, give it a listen, you may love it, but otherwise, you may not.

    Story
    "Werewolves, Vampires, Gremlins whats not to like."

    This book sucked me in right away and I was already preparing to buy the remaining books in the series from the first couple of hours. The story is about Mercy helping out the local Alpha when his daughter gets kidnapped. This is a clean cut book, no cursing or sex. I personally would have liked more romance in the story, but I have a feeling it may come later. I love Mercy and there is good development with all the characters. I didn't pay attention to the narrator until she started talking and I was happy. I think Lorelei King is awesome and have always enjoyed her work.

    "Nice start"

    I really enjoyed this book, I didn’t love it but I enjoyed it. It was a nice easy listen. I liked Mercy aka Mercedes Thompson, the heroine in this book. She wasn’t over the top bad ass but was confident enough in herself, knowing that she’s not a wimp but strong. There was werewolves, fae and vampires all introduced in this book.

    Mercy is a coyote or walker, which is almost an extinct species. She’s also a car mechanic. She was raised by wolves (werewolves), the most prominent pack in the U.S. at that. We are able to learn a little about her background and especially her relationship with Sam.
    Adam is very intriguing. He is the Alpha of the local wolf pack. There is definitely some serious sparks flying between those two and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
    There wasn’t much different from the typical UF books. Conflict, fighting, mystery, murder, possible love interest and conflict resolved with a little left open for the future.
    The narrator did a great job, no complaints there.
