When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

Would you listen to How Beauty Met the Beast again? Why?

Definitely. A fresh take on an old classic. Well written with living breathing characters that it didn't take long to like. I'm hoping the ride won't stop here. Looking forward to more from this author and these characters! I originally bought it thinking it was short and inexpensive and I couldn't loose. Well I didn't! Thanks Jax!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wesley...he is just heartbreaking and so deserving of more and has hope. I also love that he doesn't have a drop of self pity.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

She did an excellent job with the voicing. I could easily tell one character from another and she is one of those women that can do male voices well also.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Buckle up Buttercup!

Any additional comments?

I bought this instead of using a credit, just because it was inexpensive and I save credits for more expensive books. Credit or cash...it's a good listen.

"Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways. As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe."

I've been hooked on this series from the start and Shift is just one more reason to love it. The characters are smart, the dialogue is sharp and Jennifer Van Dyck is one of my favorite narrators.

Mine does have a dead spot in it. About 4 minutes of silence. Having read the series from the beginning, I don't feel like I missed much, but for someone picking up this one as the first one, it might be something important. I didn't see mention of this in any other review, so it was probably an isolated incident.

I'm looking forward to her next (and I hear her last in this series) Alpha.
