Publisher's Summary

Doctor David Lephmann wants nothing more than to learn about and help the less fortunate, and his new post at Mercy Hospital is the perfect place to do both. His mentor is desperate for the help, and welcomes him to a world of nonhuman customs and strange magics.

One night after a long day at the hospital, David is confronted by the reality of life among monsters, when he intervenes in a fight he knows nothing about. He takes a side, and his life is changed forever.

Sorely wounded, he is thrust into a world of violence and mistrust. With no way back to his old life, he must fight for a place in the new one he's been plunged into, but David has never had to fight for anything in his life. Can he survive the challenge?

    Story
    "Vamps Wolves and more"

    After listening to this book, I IMMEDIATELY found the author and bought book 2 in the series. This is Paranormal at it's best. It won't give you the "sex" fix of most paranormal books...In my opinion, they go too far into sex and don't usually have a good story. There is nothing wrong with a sexy paranormal but I draw the line when that is the entire purpose of the book. However, this book is Pure Paranormal with a good storyline.

    Story
    "A Complex and Intriguing Read."
    What made the experience of listening to Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1 the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator and the way he can draw you into the story.


    What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

    He did an amazing job as always. He really brings each character to life and is able to immerse the reader into the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because it's simply too long!! It's over 18hrs long so I knew it would take a while to listne to.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a complex story told from multiple points of view but one I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm not going to say anything about the plot because I will probably spoil something because so much happens, but what I will say is it's a slow building plot but one that is explosive and thrilling. There is so much happening simultaneously that at times it's hard to see what it means to the overall story but believe me when I say that it all comes together in the end!!

    As always, Mark E Cooper delivers an amazing book. His world building and character development are phenomenal and he puts so much thought in his books. I can understand some of the reviewers saying that there are too many POVs, but personally I really enjoyed it because it added more to the story. It's a book that you need to stick with in order to understand fully.

    I listened to the audio and the narrator delivers again. Michael Narramore does an awesome job voicing each character but I think David is my favourite. He really brings them to life.

    Im really looking forward to book 2.

    Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1 is the first in a new series of books about 'humans' and 'non humans' and how they co-exist in the near future. The book is broken down into parts and at first it seems as tho the parts aren't going to connect but they eventually do.

    I have very mixed feelings about this book. I loved the idea of where this book was going with the integration of 'non humans' into the 'human' world. What I wasn't so fond of was the fact that it took a long time to knit the stories together. It seems like the author was going in one direction and then all of a sudden 'hangs a left' and goes somewhere else.

    At 18 hours this book took some time to get through. Mr. Naramore's narration kept me in the story and I had to finish it just to see what would happen. I don't know what scenes you could have cut out to make it any shorter. The author needed all of this time to set his story.

    I'm looking forward to listening to the second book in the series. I would like to see what happens with some of the characters that we met in this, the first book.

    I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy the paranormal.

    Story
    "Welcome to the Shifter's World"

    Way of the Wolf started with a prologue of what the background story will be based upon. The story bounced around between five characters. I love the story about Doctor David Lephmann, who is forced from normal life into a shifter. He has to abandon his medical career and to start anew and to live with his alter werewolf ego, Mist.

    The story should be about him. The additional books could be added into this series from each of the four characters' stories. Additional characters are welcome in this series.

    Since I have given this as an audiobook, I did get lost with the narrator announced Part 2. I did think there was an error in the audio recording of this book. Revealing the each of the other four characters' stories were a bit confusing to size into the first book.

    The story is quite good but too much in one story, might not be a very good idea. The lesson learned in this story, is that biases exist. It doesn't matter what the person look like. It also shows that being different can close opportunity. That is what happens to David.

    I was given this audiobook by the author via Audio Blast. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing the review.

    Which character – as performed by Mikael Naramore – was your favorite?

    David would have to be my favorite character! He took control and commanded attention!


    Any additional comments?

    I was recived the audio book "The Way of The Wolf" from the author Mark E. Cooper for an honest review.

    The great story, and the amazing talent of the narrator Mr. Naramore made this story an incredibly enjoyable read. There were many characters and personalities, Mr. Naramore did a wonderful job of bring each one to life, each having their own identifiable and unique voices. (Not easily done) I loved it when there was a scene where a character was behind a closed door, he would muffle the voice and make it feel like you were a part of the story.

    The wonderfully talented writing made this story great! I loved the depth he gave each character, it really made me feel connected to them! I liked how he started the book with seemingly completely different stories then slowly intertwined them like you would a French braid. Starting with the different strands and adding to them and combining them until you had a completed and complex story! Hats off to Mr. Cooper!

    I had some unanswered questions at the end of the book but I'm sure they will be answered in the next installment "Wolfs Revenge." But overall the book ended great and I found it very enjoying and entertaining! I can't wait to get to the next one and continue the love affair I have with the characters.

    Make it so I felt I was reading the same book from one moment to another... Really, there were times I thought I was on another book....

    "OK but lacking in important areas."

    I loves the theory of the shifters and David's story. however there was hardly any of David's story and way too many solid blocked of a certain characters story with no attention to the portrayed main character. I almost think that they made Chris the MC and totally forgot that there description was about David and not a foolish cop. least to say that really irritated me. the only redeeming factor was the few snippets the author decided to give me about David.

    "Slow to start but ends well"

    I had a hard time getting into the story. I just didn't care about half the characters. However, I am glad I stuck with it because the characters I did like were able to carry the story well enough. One thing I do not understand though ... Why is it every female character Mark creates has a huge chip on their shoulder, are men haters, and pretty much hate everything life has to offer? It gets tiring.

    This is not your run of the mill Shifter/Werewolf book.It goes WAY beyond the lackluster stories which are saturating the markets.The world that Mark E. Cooper has his Shifters in is a world of chaos and balance.Mikael Narramore was an excellent choice for this project.He lends passion and convictions to his characters.You can get lost in his voice and the story.

    Any additional comments?

    There is a large cast of characters in this story, which I normally find difficult to keep track of when only listening to a book (rather than reading). But each character gets a solid amount of point-of-view time before moving onto the next person/scenario, so it wasn't as difficult to keep track as I'd have thought.

    Those many, seemingly unrelated, character arcs eventually weave together into a thrilling, confrontational climax - a very satisfying story overall.

    The narration was very good - even his Scottish accent (I'm a Scot) wasn't too cheesy ;-) and I've no idea how he kept track of all those different voices - especially when several of them were in the same scene.

    Story-wise, I believe this is the first of a series and there was a fair amount of (understandable) explanation/exposition, but usually necessary to the plot and it didn't make things drag.

    I am away off to find the next part and download it now :-)

    "Unexpected find of 2014"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1 to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book but found the AudioBook captivating, the performance of Mikael Naramore is very easy to listen to!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1?

    For me, as a whole the book leads you into the different universe gently by giving just enough information in small pockets throughout the story to draw you into the world of shifters, down to details like folklore, shifter laws and religion.


    Have you listened to any of Mikael Naramore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I havent listened to Mikael Naramore's other reads yet - but enjoyed this one very much.


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

    not so much an emotional reaction, but the book certainly pulled me into the shifter world. The writing gives a really solid insightful description from the POV of each character, in turn making it very easy to see through each of their eyes from their own unique perspectives.

    "Not as good as it could have been"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's too fragmented at the beginning, and although it all comes together towards the end somehow it is not satisfying


    Would you recommend Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1 to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, it needs too much patience at the start. I was very tempted to return it at several points.


    Have you listened to any of Mikael Naramore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but I was not unhappy wth his performance.


    Do you think Way of the Wolf: Shifter Legacies 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is clearly written with a follow up in mind as several characters are left hanging, but I won't be listening to them


    Any additional comments?
