Urgh this was a frustrating read.

What would have made Reckoning better?

I was super grosses out by what these new evil characters do to their prey. Almost to the point of not finishing the book. I was wondering how the victims stayed alive (which was explained much later in the book.)
In most of her books the evil characters are developed better, so you understand what made them this way, these weren't.
Even though Bones is the main character, it was hard for me to place when in his life this took place, before Kat or when he thought she was dead.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I Love Love you Jeaniene & Tavia. This took a dark turn in a bad place . I've started a new series with a Bones and Kat like relationship. It's Charlie and Reyes in "First Grave on the Right" cute funny banter and we'll developed love story. Not as steamy as Kat n Bones, but I have high hopes.

What three words best describe Tavia Gilbert’s voice?

I don't think describing her in just 3 words does her justice. She should read all my books. Amazing range, dramatic, believable, emotionally binding, Earth - shattering... yeah, she rocks!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Nausea and let down. I expected more.

Any additional comments?

I know it's tough to hear, but it's only because the bar was set so high with her Night Huntress series.

Bones Before Cat!!!

This was a short story about a job Bones did before he appeared in the first book with Cat.
It was enjoyable read and an interesting ending...

If you are a fan of the series then buy this.. Its just the price was too much for less than 2 hours book.

Really good but really short

Expected a longer story as the price for it was the same as book in the series. That's really the only issue. Great story.

a good short listen

A great little story. If you're a fan of the Cat & Bones books you'll really appreciate this little peek into Bones' life before he met Kat. Love it!

Reckoning

Honestly Bones' "voice" annoys me a bit. Love the story and I've read other books in the series. I'm going to keep listening. Great story, good pace, I would definitely recommend.

Awesome Bones before Cat

I’ve listened to Bones/Cat books but never noticed this book with Bones before meeting Cat. I loved it, and I think anyone who reads or listens to the later books will too.

As always, the narration is beyond amazing!!

Okay story, mediocre narration

Story was okay, the writing a little juvenile save for the gratuitous curse words. The narrator's voice and tone made it difficult for me to concentrate on the words. It seemed to have the same inflection at the end of each sentence. I really think a man's voice would have been better.

This writer never fails to entertain, keeping her characters in character and "human" nature what it is. great story line, great writing, great performance.

Disappointing

As it stated "Prequel " for the Bones character assumed it was about his early days prev vampire , his turning and his immediate struggles of his transformed years.

A good short story.

Loved it, great short story. Bones is up to his usual work with a bit of a twist.
