Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

Would you listen to Macrieve again? Why?

ABSOLUTELY! Robert does an AMAZING job bringing life to these characters. Not only that, his voice and well developed acting ability make every scene alive and vivid.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Will. His history is heartbreaking, his life was dark, stark, and filled with grief and guilt, but he had such immense strength (physical, mental, and emotional), such deep love, and such a wonderful sense of humor that Chloe couldn't help but fall in love with him.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh, hard to choose, although any scene in which his is talking dirty kind of made me smile, lol.

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

I did. Thank God for road trips.

Any additional comments?

This is, by far, my favorite of the IAD series. Kresely, you've outdone yourself with this one. Bravo!

Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow's Claim to be better than the print version?

Absolutely. Robert's voice and acting ability brought the characters to life!

What other book might you compare Shadow's Claim to and why?

It cannot compare.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the battle scenes. I also enjoyed the final scene between Trehan and Bettina where he is begging her to love him back. Spectacular!

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

A Prince without a Kingdom Battles to Win the Queen who Rules His Heart.

Any additional comments?

LOVE the audio version of this book. I look forward to hearing Mr. Petkoff take on Lothaire and MacReave!

Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding... and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human - as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion - the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco.

What did you like best about Lair of the Lion? What did you like least?

I LOVED the story. I've read this book several times on my own. I DISLIKED the narration.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself was fabulous.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I just cannot get into the story because whenever the female narrator tries to sound like a large, alpha male, it totally took me out of the story. It sounded so silly that I couldnt get into the scenes. The story would read, "His low voice spoke in a sensual whisper..." Well, it wasn't low and it sounded ridiculous NOT sensual. It lost me and I couldn't finish listening. I finished it by reading it on my own.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Only if the part of Nikolai isn't played by a woman trying to be a man.
