    "More curve balls then a baseball game"
    If you could sum up Tainted Blood in three words, what would they be?

    I can't begin to describe this book in a way that won't give away plot / character details and ruin it for everyone.
    Let me put it this way:
    This is a werewolf book that's not really about the werewolf you think you know.

    The cast of characters are fabulous and will catch you by surprise along with the plot twists and plunges. Narrator was excellent.

    Story
    "Not your normal werewolf story"

    This book took me by surprise by how quickly it dragged me in and held my interest. Spies, mercenaries, organised crime and a werewolf in a well written engaging story where you never sure what is going to happen next. As you find out more about what is going on it pulls you deeper

    The characters are well written and narrated, they are believable. I loved the fact that each character has different knowledge and they can be contradictory or missing bits.

    On the strength of this book I would be more than happy to listen to a book written by the Ferrel D. Moore or narrated by Paul Fleschner as they have both done a great job here.

    A great and truly unique story that is well worth a listen.




    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    Story
    "Atypical werewolf story, and better for it"
    If you could sum up Tainted Blood in three words, what would they be?

    Original. Mafia. Werewolf. These are three words that don't seem to be related. But, this book combines the three into a highly original werewolf tale. KGB, Russian mafia, genetic engineering, old vendettas and new ones are all at play in this book. I've read more werewolf books than I can remember but none of them are like this book. Starts straight away with high action and intrigue then moves through some history then off again at a fast pace. Enjoyed this book and would recommend to werewolf genre readers.

    Story
    "Russian mafia, KGB, Rasputin, and werewolves"

    Unique take on both werewolves and Rasputin. The story was a bit long in the tooth but was pretty enjoyable. Little too back and forth on the spies and betrayals for me. The origin of the werewolf and the mix in of Rasputin was the highlights for me. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Good story but it's all over the place."

    This is a hard book to review because, while I enjoyed it, it was kind of all over the place and there were stories within stories taking place and it all felt a bit too much. Even trying to summarise the plot is hard because I still feel like I never really knew what was happening. There was so many different elements and, for me anyway, it never really clicked and it still feels like it didn't end. I don't know, I'm not expressing myself very well, but I really don't know what to say about this! It's enjoyable; kinda, it's memorable; not really, character wise; none really stand out. It was an OK read, that was readable, but forgettable. I'm not sure if I would continue on with the series (if it became a series)

    Paul Fleschner read the story well. He had a few different tones and cadences and I had no problem distinguishing who was taking at any given time.

    I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Story
    "Werewolves, oh my!"

    Sveta, a Russian intelligence officer, smells a rat when she is ordered to kill a prisoner being held in a cage. Acting on instinct she turns rogue, frees the prisoner and helps him escape. The tale takes us on a paranormal adventure, complete with werewolves and ancient history going back to the Tsars of Russia. Quite interesting; stay with it. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    "cool"

    I received this book free of charge for an honest review.... I think. I liked the book but hey werewolves are always a good story. and I love books that show a known Villan as the victim and make it believable, worth a read If in my opinion

    "Disappointing"

    Note: In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and/or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBlast.

    I listened to this book last month but was too busy to leave a review at the time. My thoughts ... well, they're a little mixed but overall on the more negative side. This book definitely had a different twist on the whole werewolf thing, but the characters themselves weren't very compelling or interesting or whatever. It's possible that some - or all - of that was due to the narrator, who had a performance that felt just slightly above wooden. :-( I hate to knock a narrator, because I know the work that goes into doing an audiobook, but the presentation of the characters and the overall story just wasn't what it should have been, imo. There wasn't a lot of distinction between the voices and the abruptness of section breaks (i.e. hardly any time at all was given before the next scene happened, which meant that for the first few moments of the new scene you would think that it was the same scene as before). Things like that really added up and the unsatisfying, rushed-feeling conclusion left a lot to be desired. Overall, I'd rate this one a 2.5 out of 5, but because we can't designate reviews like that on Audible, I've put it at 2 - mostly because I don't feel like it warrants a whole 3. I know this is harsh, and I'm sure there are others who will have a different opinion. While this book held promise - especially at the beginning, it just wasn't pulled off very well by the time it was all over.
