Window Rock, Arizona, is the last known location of Honor Roberts, who vanished when she was just 13. It was her only sanctuary from the Breed research that would surely have ended in her death - one such insidious experiment should, indeed, have killed her. That she lived is both a miracle - and a great mystery.
Stygian's mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?

Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
I'm not a huge fan of 'The Breeds' stories - I've not read (or listened) to them all. I tend to pick the odd book that appears to have an interesting plot and I've found it easy enough to keep up with what is going on with the Breed story as a whole while missing the odd five or six stories between books. I was in a Breed mood when I saw Stygian's Honor and decided that I would get this. Stygian's Honor follows the Stygian and Liza and the efforts to find two girls (Honor and Fawn) who escaped from a lab around a decade a go. The story was pretty formulaic and anyone who has read any Breed book will be very familiar with the mating heat and all that entails. I was a little disappointed when I reached the end of this story with very little plot wise actually happening. For those of us curious as to what happens(ed) to Honor and Fawn, we will be required to dive into the next book. I personally prefer a story where there is a firm conclusion to a specific tale and felt a little grumbly that if I want to know (and actually, do I?), I'll have to get the next book.
I do like Brianna Bronte's narration and I'm happy to give her five stars. But the story only scores three this time. Having said that, this is book 27 and it would be pretty amazing if a series was still feeling fresh!
She has a grasp for different accents. I dislike the misprouncements (machinations). I also dislike the fact that the main characters for each book sounds the same. Tanner should sound like Tanner and Stygian should have his own voice. And Scheme and Honor should not sound alike either. I think that the story lines could be served better if a different person performed them. I don't know use a different person for each book?
There are no characters I would cut.
It is the same story, just different characters. It is time for a different formula, format or whatever she uses. Also, the story is not always kept straight. In one book Brimm was going to be the assistant director, now Lawe? What happened? I aslo don't like the fact that original characters disappear. Where is Dr. Martin? I wish that more consideration is given to the story lines instead of the sex scenes, which are the same also. I like the Breeds and wish the books would come out faster than they do. But, I think that she needs to change it up some. I also think that she do a prequel about the Leo and Elizabeth. I would like to hear their story. I like the snippets we get in the novels but I think they deserve their own novel.
“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where an individual's mind can get both provocation and privacy.”
I love all these books! On my watch list to read as soon as they are out, same goes for the audio versions. I have found you are either a fan of this 'type' of book or your not. There are a lot of other authors who have written similar story lines along this concept but in my opinion Lora Leigh's Breed's series is the best! Well written, great continuity from book to book and though they are all in the same vein you learn just a little more, you get pulled in that much further with every new book. - I am a huge fan first book to last.
I like her narration, male and female characters. - on my list :)
Just more of the same in this series but in this book there is more sex than any plot and even then it ends without saying what happens to the heroine. What's with that? Especially since each book has its own heroine. Maybe I'm just tired of women being portrayed as subservient. Not sure that I will buy any more of this series.
I really don't care for the narrator's male voice it makes all of the men sound like idiots or just plain weird. She's good for the rest of the reading but her men's voices are just plain distracting.
Jonas Wyatt continues his agonising search for the solution to his adopted daughter's life-threatening condition. Can Stygian's mate provide the answer?
This is one of the weaker tales, but a fan of the Breeds series may forgive it's shortcomings.I fear that Lora Leigh is endowing her characters with just too many scenting skills. Envy, determination, frustration? Oh Please! most of us can detect that by looking at someone.
The reader is consistently good and keeps the story moving along without intruding upon the atmosphere
There were a couple of moments when I wished that Stygian could run as fast as possible from the spoilt infant that Fate had provided as a mate. Did she have to talk like a 12 year old? A virgin at 27, well no wonder! Nobody but a saint would take her on.
I am a big fan of the Breeds books but this one falls short. It felt as if was written for a much younger reader.
No. I felt the narrator's male voices did not match the characters. Especially previous characters such as Dash and Jonas. She gave more of a brittish accent.
I liked Dog's humor throughout this book.
Male character voices were weak. Hated Stygian and Jonas' voice.
This book series really needs to have two narrators a male and female.
I would listen to this again and again and again.... Why the headline says it all.
Breeds are hot, and this book doesn't let you down. Even though you can figure out pretty fast what is going to happen it still gets you every time.
There wasn't just one
It made me hot, and also made me cry
I haven't read the printed version but loved the audio
Liza I felt she had a strong personality
No one favorite scene nor book in this series.
I really enjoyed it all
I spent a fortune on this series, and don't regret a penny.
It would have been better if the book was shorter. I felt like I was listening to the same chapter over and over.
The book could have been much shorter. I guess the plot after the first chapter
I didn't enjoy the book so it made listening to her performance unpleasant
I would have cut half the book
I don't recoment this one. The book was too long and the heroine unpleasant
Shorten reduce the number of sex scenes and shorten them. One of the things that was interesting about this breeds series was how Lora integrated the steamy sex scenes with an interesting story about the breed. But this story was so drawn out that there is actually no punch to the story at all.
Looking for another strong paranormal romance. Something like JR Wards BDB, Laura Adrains Breeds, Larissa Ione's Horsemens or even Laura Wrights Eternal series.
Nothing really she has a knack for Lora's stories
No I am just hoping Lora will tighten up her writing. Harmony's Way, Lion's Heart or Dawn's Awakening are better stories.
For the most part I would recommend skipping this one in the series
