Additional Comments: - The f..Show More »lashbacks at the beginning were a tad difficult to follow. - Fight scenes were excellent. - Marissa came across as whiny at first, but by the end, she's pretty cool. - Characters: Marin and Steve are also interesting characters. There's a whole host of other Omega Group characters with intriguing powers. - I enjoyed the way this story wove in Greek gods/goddesses, demigods, and amazon warriors. - The narrator's performance was good. - Once the plot settled after the flashbacks it moved forward with great speed and nice tension. - Overall, this is an awesome YA story about a young woman just discovering her destiny.

It is a very short audio but it summed up the issue, what their goal was and how they rectified in the hour and half audio. The author, Andrea Domanski, succinctly prepared her listeners for the series and demonstrated clearly the personalities of everyone involved.
There’s some action, mystery and stage setting for the series. It was a bit too short; I would like to hear Crossfire so I can decide how this audio really fits into the series.
The narrator, David Dietz, did a good job with narration.
The production was ok but sounded like there was a tunnel like feel. While a bit distracting at first, I became used to it.
Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.

This book was not as good as the first in the series for me. Maybe that is because it revolves around animal (eg. wolf) shifters, and that is not rea..Show More »lly a subject that appeals much to me. After I set that aside, I still enjoyed the book. I have to say that this writing about "animal shifters" was much better than I expected. It didn't seem as cheesy as I always thought they would. This story in the Omega Group series takes place near the Grand Canyon and involves Native American characters. I like how this series keeps adding new supernatural elements to each book, and their group gets more diverse. Overall, a good book, especially for those who like shifters and super-heroes.
I liked this book. I especially liked that it brought in the mythology surrounding Pandora's Box, which has always fascinated me. This book centered..Show More » around a lot of mythological characters such as Zeus, Eris, Pandora, and more, which I liked, while tying it to the Omega Group storyline. I listened to the Audible audio book narrated by Melissa Chatwood, and I really enjoyed her narration. She uses good character differentiation and uses accents for her characters that sound believable. If you are a fan of the series, or just like paranormal urban fantasy, I recommend giving this one a try. I actually think it is one of the best in the series.
This is the first book in the Omega Group series I've listened too, and there's a lot of Chaos going o..Show More »n..... The good kind, that reels you in, and hooks you on a fast paced story of good versus evil. While the drama for world domination takes place, it's was character's I really enjoyed.
Orano and Phoenix are completely opposite. Orano is serious, stoic, and doesn't have many facial expressions, while Phoenix is open, friendly, and thinks quick on his feet. Even though these two are different, they worked well together.
Orano and Phoenix go to investigate the claims about a witch, and plans of world domination, and come face to face with Orano's childhood sweetheart. Orano and Grace have not seen each other in years. They each have their own secretes, but will have to open up, and trust each other, if they want to prevent the high priestess's plans for world domination.
Daid Dietz is definitely an enthusiastic narrator, and animates the story very well. He does male voices well, but the females...some are awkward and a little too high pitched.
Overall not a bad story, or narration, but I do recommend starting with book one. For those with a Kindle Unlimited membership, these books are currently offered and would be a perfect whispersync deal!
I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I've enjoyed this series, but I think this book is my favorite so far. This story focuses on a Scottish merman, Myrick, who is the last of his clan. ..Show More » I may be a little biased because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Scots, and apparently that even translates to books. His backstory was really gripping and heartbreaking. His character is fun and funny. I loved his interactions with everyone, but especially with Ellie. I also really enjoyed the Bermuda Triangle aspect, as that is something that has always fascinated me and made my imagination wander. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by David Dietz. He was really great at giving each character a unique voice. My only complaint is that the females came across a bit too shrill when they got worked up (but I guess it was called for since the text refers to their "shrillness.") I loved his Scottish accent for Myrick's character. Overall, a really great listen.
