Last Request is a brand-new story set between the second to last and last chapters of With All My Soul. Told between Tod and Nash's point of view, as they try to grant the last request Kaylee never had a chance to ask for.

While I adore Amanda Ronconi as a narrator, she is firmly fixated in my mind as "Kaylee", so I kept forgetting I was listening to the story from the POV of Tod or Nash. I would have preferred a male narrator...the one who did Reaper would have been a good choice. I didn't deduct stars for this though, as I cannot fault the narration otherwise. The story was great, as I expected it would be...the whole series is fantastic.

Most can’t touch the power. But Liv Warren is special—a paranormal tracker who follows the scent of blood. Liv makes her own rules, and the most important one is trust no one. But when her friend’s daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath,Liv can’t rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, provided they enjoy "paranormal" book styles. It is certainly no more far fetched than vampires and werewolves, but Rachel Vincent has gone one step further than the standard paranormal fiction by inventing a new style of paranormal ability rather than basing the book around traditional creatures.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't have a favourite character as such. I enjoyed the interplay between the main two characters, and the book left me wanting to know more about some of the other major characters (which I understand will happen in future books).

Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't listened to her before. When I listened to the "test" listen before buying, I was actually put off by the narrator. She sounded rather flat and seemed to lack something, and I nearly didn't buy the book, but I love Rachel Vincent's books and once I began listening to the book I found that Gabra's narration actually suited the tone of the book and was much better than I initially thought. She also did a good job of distinguishing between the two main characters, as each character takes it in turns "narrating" a chapter and this could get confusing without differences in the narration.

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

Absolutely!
