"A new, strongly unique voice in the dark fantasy genre." (Kim Harrison)
"Hunter's very professionally executed, tasty blend of dark fantasy, mystery, and romance should please fans of all three genres." (Booklist)
"Khristine Hvam portrays Jane with an adventurous-sounding voice edged with a twang.... Hvam’s voices for the Louisiana locals whom Jane learns to love and respect.... augment an intriguing story with hints of Native American mysticism." (AudioFile)
Jane is tough, smart, funny and a little bit not herself. This book was easy to get into and stay into and when it was done, I downloaded the next two books right away! Great characters, excellent narrator and a good ole story.
Audible. ..yeahhhhhhh.....yeahhhhhh...Who Needs T.V.
In atleast my top 30 which is really saying a lot.
I thought when I started listing it was going 2 be a lot like the Mercedes Thompson series and had put off listening to it. But it is completely different and really well written. Very detail....
Oatmeal and raw meat get somw
I love this series!! It is so nice to listen to a book without all of the swearing that is added to other books and to not have all of the explicit sex scenes. This books are very easy to listen to, I have purchased all of the series from audible and am on my last book that is available. Very sad to not have another one right now.
Not a lot of swearing and explicit sex!!!!!
I might have enjoyed the parts where the beast took over if the story was still told form Jane's pov (even if the animal was in control.) I ended up skipping over the beast's bits of the story.
That depends on how often the beast's pov appears in the series.
I liked the world building and the characters. I would be tempted to buy more from this series if it weren't for the beast's pov.
I normally only listen to romance, paranormal romance mostly, but I enjoyed the story. It was very well written and had plenty of excitement. I liked the way when she was in cat form it actually talked how you would think a cat would think/talk if they could.
There is potential for romance but even without it I recommend it. It's definitely different. I plan on picking up the next one. Glad it was on the daily deal or I would have missed this story.
its long could of shorten the book by 2 hrs easy
a very good reader and a good voice
parts of the book was good other parts it was had to stay focused and pay attention to
...it was FUN! I'm not sold on Hvam's narration, I thought she was talking too fast at normal speed, but slowing it down to half speed sometimes caused issues. On the other hand the slower speed gave her voice a sensuous drawl that I felt fit the character perfectly. Khristine, take note: Slow it down a bit and purr a bit!
The story has a couple of good twists, and the heroine is confused and confusing enough to be very believable. Not high drama, but damn fun. Enough that I'll probably pick up the next in the series.
yes but only if they like these kind of books I wouldn't recommend this to a "new-bie" I did not enjoy all the gruesome details but overall I really liked it.
She's a good story teller and does a good job on the voices.
I have no complaints for buying this. I would read it again. I think the author could have advanced the plot a wee bit faster, but I still liked it.
Prolly :) Its a good listen, not always action action but hours of entertainment
Cant spoil the book for other readers
Its just as good as her other work
the book has its moments :)
good book :) worth the credit :)
