Cursed by a blind witch in a remote corner of Waristan, Special Ops Captain Jason Wolfe finds himself transforming into a creature of local legend, a lupine referred to in fearful whispers as Blue Wolf. Faster, stronger, and more lethal, he’s the perfect soldier - but not for the US military. To break the curse, Jason must join a war between ancient tribal foes: blue werewolves and the formidable White Dragon. In a battle spanning from the peaks of Central Asia to the valleys of Manhattan, Jason will push himself to the breaking point.

I was gifted this ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review. This was an exceptionally written and narrated story. The authors imagination coupled with lots of twists kept you interested. The narrators use of different voice inflections allowed you to know who was speaking without having to identify the character. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

I was given this audio Book via author/narrator for a honest and unbiased review of said book. the opinions are my own and not anyone else's.

Between Janine R Pestel re writing this fine book and John H Fehskens narrating it I couldn't put it down until it was finished.
The rewrite was much better than the first novel of this title.

Hilary McMullen and Anita Higman along with Narrator Michelle Babb did an awesome job with this story.
I really enjoyed the interaction between the boys and the girls. I couldn't turn off this book until the announcement hope you enjoyed.......
at the end I think the teens who will listen to this story will enjoy the pop quiz I know I did as an adult.
If I could give higher marks I would.

There are not enough superlatives to describe this book. Cussler's skill at developing the story and the characters pulls you into their world.  J. Charles as the narrator out did himself once again to bring another Cussler book to life. You felt like you were there living the adventure. Can't wait for the another one to come out.

Show me an amateur conjurer, and I'll stop him before he gets himself killed. That's the idea, anyway. But New York City isn't what it used to be, and I don't mean the recent crash. Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn't be able to. And there's been a murder at the city's most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim's back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday.

Once again Lisa B Thomas has written another outstanding book. The wit she adds throughout is so entertaining for me to listen to. I had a few laugh out loud moments in the book.
This book wouldn't be a GREAT audio book without the help of Kelley Hazen. once again the different inflections of voices were so great. I do love her voices they make me smile.
side note- was at my mom's listening to this book and she was laughing so hard she almost peed herself.
I believe it is a must buy for everyone that needs to smile. can't wait to listen to the next one.

I really liked this book. The story was based on a dragon's point of view. The narrator did a great job with the various characters voices which made following who was speaking. I look forward to the next book in the series.
