Publisher's Summary

Every werewolf knows the meek won't inherit the Earth.

Fen Young is a half-shifter whose inner beast is more mouse than wolf. Home is her castle, the only place she's ever felt safe.

Enter Hunter Green, an uber-alpha strong enough to stop traffic with a single look. He's handsome and enticing and seems like just the ticket to broaden Fen's horizons...until the uber-alpha brushes off his admirer and summarily rejects her from her home pack.

Now treading water in the no-man's land of outpack territory, Fen must confront a missing pack mate, a tantalizing stranger, and a serial killer targeting half-werewolves. Will she be able to shore up her waning power in time to save her friend...and half-breeds everywhere...before it's too late?

USA Today best-selling author Aimee Easterling's new urban fantasy novel is chock full of adventure, romance, and danger and is bound to leave readers craving more.

Great Series Starter!

I love listening to stories after I've read them. The narrator just brings the story to life. Fen is a halfie wolf trying to be the alpha for her pack of other halfies. She's learning as she goes, and struggling with who to trust. Enter Hunter, the wolf responsible for her current predicament. What are his motives, can she trust him? Finding themselves in dangerous situations repeatedly, Fen finds inner strength and learns just what it means to be the Alpha of her pack.

New Series

Fen is our focus character in this new series and boy do I love her some times she does my head in but most of the time I love her character. I’ve read the book and now I’ve listened to the book and each time I read a book and then listen to it I’m surprised by just how much more I enjoy it or go to myself I don’t remember that. Another good thing to make an audiobook successful is to have the right narrator for the book. Ms Easterling hit the nail on the head with choosing Angel Clark. Angel was a new narrator for me but I did thoroughly enjoy listening to her.

Utterly delightful

This book is a wonderful escape from everyday life, Easterling brought me immediately into her world and I loved “the trouble twins” a pair of werewolves that keep Fen, the alpha of the pack, on her toes throughout. I recommend this book (and more in the world Easterling has created) you won’t be sorry to spend time with these wolves.

Good Story but not as good as Shiftless Series

The main character is a strong willed woman with a Very submissive Wolf half. Her bullheadedness and strongwill gets her and her pack? Into much danger, the belief in Youth that they can do anything and not get hurt theme.
I preferred the original story better "Shiftless"

Performance Ruined the Story

The performance was strange. Little inflection for excitement or for sorrow. The speed of reading changed, but randomly. All in all , put me to sleep twice.

Happily surprised

I love Aimee's books and was excited to listen to this one. At first i wasnt sure i liked the narrator, her voice wasnt how i imagined Fen's, but after listening to her and how she changed her voice for each character, i was happily surprised and really enjoyed it. I even found my husband secretly listening with me!

Excellent Book

I loved reading this book and the audio version is truly excellent.
I was spellbound all over again listening to the tale of Fen and Hunter. How can a halfie wolf hope to sustain alpha position to a group of wolves and another halfie. Listen as they go from one dangerous situation to another, growing and learning their strengths and weaknesses along the way.
Aimee Easterling is one of my favorite authors and I loved listening to this book.

Great reading of this story

I have read this entire series and was very happy to listen to book 1 as I love to listen to audio books when I walk. I remembered most of the story from my prior reading, but the initial scene at the bar still cracks me up. This is the story of a female "halfie," half human and half wolf-shifter, who has been forced to leave the safety of the pack she belonged to. She is joined by another halfie, a set of twins (one male, one female), and a friend who is her beta. Yep, she's the alpha of the little pack and, as she considers her wolf to be the weakest of them all, she is thankful that her former alpha gave her a little of his power to help her out. She is being dogged by the very wolf that forced her exodus from her pack,and there is great danger as she makes her way through out-pack territory where halfies have suddenly become victims of kidnappings and ritual killings.

I still got tired of hearing, rather than reading, "Uber Alpha" and "trouble twins." I think the two terms are over-used, but they didn't bother me as much the second time around. I hope I get to listen to the rest of the stories in the series as I know they are really good.

I was given a free copy of this audio book by the author. My review is voluntary.

Unique and a bit crazy

I liked that this is an unique read, and I was entertained the whole time. It was a rough start for me in the beginning, but as the story went on, I like the direction it took. I listened to the audio version and the narrator didn't do it for me; it sounds a bit weird to me. She was almost robotic and the emotion to her voice didn't fit what was happening in the book. It doesn't flow, it does get a bit better as the story progresses though, but still not one of my favorites.

I didn't really like Easterling's take on shifters. They are jerks and too horny; they can't control themselves. Both the men and the women. I did like Fen, but her self-deprecation was a bit too much. She doesn't read people very well, but she holds her own. She's actually pretty tough, she just doesn't make the best decisions.

The whole scenario with one of the wolf shifters, Ginger, was gross. She would tease men by being completely nude and rubbing up on people. It was all very unpleasant.

I also didn't like that the mates scenario didn't seem to be that big of a deal.
Mates is one of my favorite parts of shifter books, I love the deep connection it provides. There's a bit of that connection here, but I would've like more. There was some really weird actions between Fen's mate and a 16 year old wolf. I think it was supposed to come across as protective on his part or wolf like, but it came off as more inappropriate. It wasn't a big thing; just a few small things, but it still felt weird.

The romance does have its sweet moments though, and I do like Fen's mate. He's there for Fen when she needs him. The story does start to pick up though, and I wanted to know what would happen. There's a bit of mystery going on, and there's some fun action. Overall, the story is engaging and draws you in, so despite a few things, I went with a 4 star rating. Half Wolf is a unique story with unique characters. It's a fun read. I also would like to see where Fen ends up, so I'd like to check out the next books in this series.

Fun shifter read with lots going on.

Fen was a great character who had a lot on her plate. Lots of action and touches of humor with lots of twist in the story. I really enjoyed her character and I also loved the interaction and chemistry with Hunter. The narration was done at a good pace. The story itself was interesting and unique. Loved it!
