Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, superpowers aren't all they're cracked up to be. 

Kate has enough problems - a boss that's a little too friendly, a sex life that's nonexistent, and a cat with zero tolerance for late meals. The last thing she needs is to be kidnapped, even if it is by a hot Brit.

Afterward, she's mysteriously returned and has no memory of what happened. She learns, with the help of an eccentric, sexy woman, that she's been modified - given a power unique to her talents. Sounds cool, right? It would be if she knew how to use it without killing everyone around her.

Modified is a funny, sexy, geeky romp about the trouble of acquiring an unexpected and inherently evil superpower. Full of offbeat characters, profanity, and just enough deliciously wicked thoughts, you'll love this fun series. With the bundle edition, you get all five volumes in one!

Hilarious!

I absolutely loved this authors style. Written in the first person the listener gets an upclose look at Kate's thoughts which had me rolling in laughter. Its light--hearted fun for adults, especially if you enjoy a paranormal twist. Note there is some profanity, actually lots of profanity.

Kate doesn't have a glamorous life. She works as a temp, doing boring work, has a boss whose sexually harrassing and has little to no social life with the exception of one friend. Then she wakes with a huge throbbing lump on her head, can't remember anything about the previous night and soon finds out she has super powers.

Along with the humor is a touch of mystery and action.

Perfect match of narrator and author

I knew right away that this book was a marriage made in heaven. The cadence of the written word and the psychology of the main character was expertly delivered by the narrator! There was a bit more sex in this series than I expected but it was a fun and inventive sci-fi and it was incredibly well-performed.

It should be longer!

This story was just plain, sexy, grown up, unapologetic, original, FUN.

I only wish it had been longer.

"That's what she said."

Read the book and you'll see that the level of humor is in line with the story.

I will be watching for more from Kat Stiles. Great stuff.

Modified

Modified is not without charm and is an interesting superhero adventure. It is kind of reminiscent of an X-men origin story although it was definitely not written for kids. The book centers on a group of supers that form a team, have some fun powers, and battle a villain who is using supers for experiments. The story is exciting, the plot is well paced, and the characters are fun. However, there were defiantly some scenes that seemed forced or slightly awkward. Moreover, sometimes problems enter the plot or are resolved too conveniently for my tastes. However, the book is entertaining and if you are just looking for a fun mindless read this is the book for you.

Sexy And Funny Sci-Fi

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

This story had me cracking up several times, and at others caused an increase in heart palpitations. This is certainly a book to just have fun listening too.

Jennifer Gilmour is excellent! She fully encapsulated every character, allowing each to come alive for the listener. Her voices and accents are terrific. Despite this being the first time I have heard her, she has vaulted to become one of my top three female narrators. I will be looking to hear more of her work.

laugh out loud

This is the first to fifth books I’ve read/listened to by this author and I can’t wait to listen to another in this series.
I found these books original, entertaining, witty, funny and an easy listen. There’s a bit of self discovery going on, kick the bad guys ass and save the imprisoned, or, at least try to.

This is the first to fifth books I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Jennifer Gilmour) and I would gladly listen to another. She does a fantastic job using accents and different tones for each character. She brings out their personalities and reads the story as if I were a fly on the wall watching and listening to the actual characters. She’s now on my list of favorite narrators.

There are sex scenes, but not overly explicit. There is quite a bit of swearing. There is not any excessive violence

good listen

Fast and good storys, it was nice to have shorter storys that make up a big story so it has a nice stopping point.

Sexy, exciting and non-stop fun!

This was a well written Sci-fi series that was an absolute pleasure to listen to in the Audible version. The story held my interest from beginning to end, both from an action and a romantic standpoint. There was plenty of erotic content, but this is by no means porn. It's primarily just a lot of fun to listen to.

The narration by Jennifer Gilmour was an absolute joy. I loved the voices she came up with. The protagonist, Kate, comes from New Jersey. To my ear, but perhaps not yours, that means she has no regional accent at all. Her fellow superpower friend Vi sounds like she came originally from Brooklyn, or perhaps the Bronx. Her voice added greatly to my enjoyment of the story. There are characters, male and female, from Britain, Slovakia, Russia and what I think is the American South. It must have have been a challenge to the narrator to keep them all straight, but she absolutely does.

This was just a very fine job on the part of both the author and narrator. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review, which is what I'm giving. That said, I wouldn't have any hesitation about spending one of my precious Audible credits on this. It's really that good, and a non-stop fun listen. Go for it, I don't think you'll regret it.

Brilliantly Addictive

Kate is a wonderfully fun quirky and overall unusual heroine who makes this book a must buy. The author has done a brilliant job of bringing this world to life, you find yourself getting swept away from reality. I found this book thoroughly entertaining from the beginning to the end. The narration is brilliant.

Love it! More please!

Modified:Volumes 1-5 Box Set by Kat Stiles, narrated by Jennifer Gilmour

WOW! I loved this box set so much I listened to it again immediately.
More please!
The story is fast paced, full of suspense and action, but also has humorous and emotional moments. There is futuristic science and tech stuff and just the right amount of steamy sexual encounters to amuse, but not interfere with the main story. There are many twists in the tale and unexpected developments to keep you interested.
All the characters are quite believable and relatable, despite or maybe because of their individual quirks.

The story is told from the protagonist Kate’s perspective and allows insight into her thoughts as situations develop.
Kate is a regular woman with regular needs, a boring job, a work friend called Jay and lives alone with her cat. One day she is kidnapped by a handsome man with an English accent and wakes up the next morning with a lump on her head, but otherwise seemingly unharmed and no memory of what has happened to her.
From here on strange things start to occur, she is develops superpowers, which she must learn to control. Steve , the man who kidnapped her and had something to do with her change and a perplexing woman Viola, with powers of her own; keep mysteriously turning up and try to influence her against each other. Her only friend Jay is being very solicitous, but may have a secret of his own?

The narrator Jennifer Gilmour is perfect for the voice of Kate and does a pretty good job of changing her voice for the different characters, though her English accent has room for improvement.

X-men ish - meets the future

I typically don't do futuristic reads that often but this one caught me pleasantly by surprise. I really enjoyed the story line and the flow was fast paced. I'm SO glad I got the box set - the cliff hangers at the end of each volume would have driven me crazy if I have to wait - so that tells you how engaged I became in this series. I loved the twists and turns and appreciated how the addition of characters was introduced. The narrator did a fantastic job on this read - the accents used to differentiate between the characters was amazing! Overall I really enjoyed this futuristic X-Men like read with some erotic and romance thrown in for good measure.

this book was given to me for free at my request (as part of a box set) and I provided this voluntary review.

So Good

I absolutely loved this, it was so much more than I was expecting. It's fun, funny, and fast. It completely held my attention and I read it in one sitting. It has geeky characters, accidental murders, sex, super powers - everything I love.

I really enjoyed Jennifer Gilmour's narration. Her performance was great and she delivered the humour perfectly.

Hilarious and Sexy Action

I received a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Loved this audiobook, it’s hilarious, sexy and action packed following Kate after she is kidnapped and Modified, waking up with a superpower and no memory of how it happened. The story is well written from Kate’s point of view with plenty of profanity and sexy thinking, the characters are colourful and it is all brought to life by the fantastic narrator. Cannot wait for more audiobooks by Kat Stiles as I love her writing style and hopefully teamed with Jennifer Gilmour as the narrator.
