    "Weg"

    Robert Petkoff is, in a word, delightful. 5 minutes into this audio book I said to myself, "This was a bad idea..." for all the most wonderful reasons! Thank god I didn't listen to MacRieve...I don't think my poor mortal body could have handled it. Kresley Cole has long been one of my favorite authors, but I had put off reading this particular book under the extremely misinformed guise that it wasn't pivotal to the IAD storyline. Truthfully, I only endeavored to read it after Dark Skye left some holes that so badly needed to be filled *snicker*. I found the audio book version and that was that! My mind had been made up. Kresley's weaving plotlines and Robert's enthusiastic storytelling left no doubt in my mind that the decision to download had been a good one.

    "WOW!"

    I wish I knew this author simply because I find her to be amazing. The worlds she creates is a thing of beauty I will most likely read or listen to whatever she writes. This book is just great.

    "Loved Trehan!!"
    Would you listen to Shadow's Claim again? Why?

    Yes, you don't catch everything first time around. You know what to listen for second time, when trying to understand the Lore


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow's Claim?

    The end of the fight with Kaspin


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    He's very good, with all the different accents and characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, as much as I enjoyed this book. Bettina is one pathetic heroin. Simply put, to whinny.<br/>


    Any additional comments?

    Keep on writing!

    "LOVE LOVE LOVE the books from Kresley Cole"
    If you could sum up Shadow's Claim in three words, what would they be?

    Love, Sex, and more SEX


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    I honestly believe the reason why i love the "Immortals After Dark" series is because of Robert's narrations! He brings the character to life with their individual voices, accents, and personalities that is portrayed in the books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES ! I'm a complete junkie...

    "Good start to a new series - 4.5 stars"

    Really 4.5 stars. I liked this book, but I think the tournament scenes went on a little too long. Would have liked a few more romance scenes instead of all the blood, gore & killing. But I like the start of this new series. I like the Dacians. I look forward to learning more about the rest of the cousins and how Elizabeth continues to tame Lothaire. I hope we hear more about Bett & Trehan in future books. This book didn't really explore them as a couple very much. I hope Salem is in future books, he's a hoot! Great narration!

    "A great start to a spin-off series"

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars

    This book got better as it progressed through. It has the classic KC construction in that the main male character is uncontrollably drawn to the main female while the main female struggles and defies the less intense pull towards the male. These uneven surges then creates the entire basis of the story, with lots of action, humor, death, and lust adding color and depth to the tale.

    At first, I was disappointed because I felt like it was the same story with different character names and a different backdrop. Although there is some truth to that, KC is a skilled writer in that she is able to spin the tale with new aspects that, after all was said and done, I really enjoyed the romance. The surrounding events are also very intriguing because Cole does a great job of connecting all of her tales and characters in both a subtle and evident way. Before reading this book, I have read up to book four so there were a few things that I wasn't privy too, but I figure it will make sense once I finish reading them.

    Narration
    Narrator: Robert Petkoff
    Performance: 4/5
    Speed: 1.25x
    Petkoff is perfect for this narration because he has such a strong and powerful voice. His rendition of the female characters were pretty good as well, not making them sound vapid.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    From beginning to end it's a great paranormal listen. I've had it on my wish list for awhile but kept passing it by. I'm glad I finally got it. I enjoy KC's books and this is another fine example of why I keep getting her books. This is a very creditworthy book for the paranormal fans.
