My name is Fynn Young. Fynn is pronounced as it sounds F-I-N-N. I live in Mississippi in a small city called Tupelo.
I was born in 1901. If you guessed my age to be 114 years old, you are correct. So how am I still alive? I am a female wolf shifter. I was born in 1925. When I was 24 years old, I learned I had a unique gift: I could change into a black wolf. I will forever look as though I am in my early 30s now. Being a shifter is something I have struggled with for 90 years. Coming to terms with it, I mean. I live in the South and I haven't come into contact with any of my kind but once, and he was no help. I don't want to live in a pack, although they say packs are healthier and are more adjusted. I don't have very much information as far as being a wolf shifter. I don't know anyone else like me. So while I do my tracking, I also look for people like me who can hopefully answer my questions.
I do know a little about what I can do. I can shift anytime; I don't need a full moon. Silver does hurt very badly and will kill a shifter if it isn't treated immediately. I don't kill humans when I shift, I hunt for small game animals. I do love dogs. I actually have a dachshund named Riley. And as far as I know, there is no cure for lycanthropy. When I shift, I transform into a 110-pound female wolf with hazel green eyes and thick dark brown, almost black, fur.
I chose to use my curse, as I call it, for good. I track down missing people. People who may be missing by choice, or who may not be. I also track children who are lost, kidnapped, or are runaways.
I work alongside my trusting companion Riley, and two other friends.
This is our story.

Going on a supernatural ride based in the south, where I'm from!

it's definitely intriguing!

The main character. It's very easy to imagine yourself as part of the pack.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Southern werewolves with a sassy bite!
Any additional comments?
This is a great start for a budding writer. As Ann Riley keeps writing, I know her talent will continue to improve. I look for to less "I said" or so and so "said" in future books. The narrator did a good job with the accent.

Would you try another book from Ann Riley and/or Amanda Goolsby?
Yes, the story line is pretty decent and they're shorter stories compared to what I normally read so they are good to get me in to something a little different than normal.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Didn't really have a favorite
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amanda Goolsby?
I don't listen to many books so I don't feel that I can answer this due to a lack of knowledge of narrators.

My biggest complaint about this series is that it sometimes feels like the story was being pushed to the back burner to get the sex scenes in. There's nothing wrong with a good sex scene in a book but these felt like they were starting to become the main focus in the last 2 books.The narration in this book was a little predictive. One of the many reasons that's kept me from publishing a book of my own...Narration is hard! It seemed like after every time someone talked, the sentence ended in "said Fynn" or "Nick said." There was not a lot of variation in there. When it's clearly a conversation between 2 people, I don't feel like I need to be told who is saying what after every sentence and there are other ways to indicate who is talking. There was also a lot of nodding in the series. Again, I would prefer to see some variations in the book here - other ways to show agreement. Overall, I enjoyed the story and would listen to more in the series if they come out. It's a nice change to the material I normally read and the stories are short enough that I can listen to them on my commute in just a few trips. Also, as a note to the narrator of this book, I would like to see/hear a little more change in your voice when someone should be feeling a certain emotion. In the first book, Claire should've sounded more sad or mournful. In some instances, she almost sounded chipper.
