Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday.

At the root of a God is a man. A superstition, a ritual, old wives tale or a simple Covenant of the masses can manifest creatures of our own making and eventual doom. This might have been a fictional story but it totally changed my perspective on how I view relationships between humans and the gods that they worship.

It worked out well until a storm blew trouble right into his lap. Kyra fled her abusive boyfriend, but when her borrowed vehicle runs out of gas in the worst town she could find herself in, she comes across Tyler. Fate has brought the two together for a reason...

What would have made Moonlit Protector better?

I am not exactly sure what I expected from a short novel, but I truely thought there would be more depth to these characters. The whole read felt generic and predictable.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Outlander, or something by R.A. Salvatore.

How could the performance have been better?

Great stories, even short ones, need to leave the reader with a feeling that the book they just read is now a great memory. A memory that can be recalled, at will, with clarity and closeness to the charaters that can only be conveyed through the passions of good writing.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

No reaction. . . that is the problem.

Any additional comments?

I think this author's intent was to sell a book instead of creating a story. I could see paying for this short novel as a book, but not $6.00 for an audio.
