Publisher's Summary

Maggie returns to the place of her birth and her world suddenly turns into a sensual, but dangerous delight. The rainforest holds secrets of her birthright and a mysterious man, as predatory as any of the animals, waiting in the very heart of the jungle for her arrival.

Under the blazing heat of the Borneo sun, a beautiful naturalist's dream comes true - to live among the feral jungle creatures. But an untamed, irresistible beast of another sort forces her to explore her own wild side.

Spot-on: listen to more titles in Christine Feehan's Leopard series.

    "alright"

    this book was ok, it ended rather abruptly and the book was very short, Christine Feehan has some great books, so the mediocrity of this one kind of stunned me.

    "The Awakening"

    I have read all of this author's books, from several of her different series, and I have got to say this was the worst book I have read of hers. I guess, statistically, she was due for a stinker!
    The love scenes got to be tiring and tedious- I actually had to skip over them since I couldn't take them anymore, which made the story end much faster, and made me feel cheated as far as the money spent to buy it.
    Christine, please, go back to developing the storyline and cut out the sex already!

    "My only complaint was that the story wasn't longer"

    A great story. Erotically charged. Since it is a relatively short book the plot isn't as complicated as many Christine Feehan books but it was quite good.

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "Waste of money waste of time"

    This is a waste of time! This book although important I guess for the series was just a waste of time and money. I am a huge fan of Christine Feehan she is the author who got me into paranormal books. So I figured that this series would be a good one. Man was i wrong.

    It isn't that long but it took me forever to read. I can't explain. How much of a bore this book was.

    A woman goes to the jungle of South America to inherit her dead parents estate. She meets a man and with in one day of meeting him falls in love with him and begins sleeping with him and decides to spend the rest of her life with him. Oh and a plot twist another man tries to steal her and the two men duke it out and fight to the death to have her. That is what the story is about in a two sentences.

    From the excepts that I have apart from this one the rest of the series seem to have more meat to them, and should be more entertaining than this one.

    I wold have to say hat this is not essential to the series and you can go on to the second book and be fine with out reading the first one. The narrator did a okay job but not the best. All in all this is not one of the best from Christine Feehan.

    "A good book"

    It's a good book, but no where near the excellence of the other Leopard books by Christine Feehan.

    "Almost there"

    It was not as riveting as I had expected. A lot more could have been done to the characters. Having read a lot of this writer's books I was disappointed

    Story
    "Too short and too sexual"
    What could Christine Feehan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Some less sex, more plot, more characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Entering the house for the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    It was well written but had very little plot, few characters and a lot of description of the bedroom. I don't mind sexual books, but I do like more to a book than just that. So, it's a so so book.

    Story
    "unawakened"
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Allison Kruise?

    I absolutely LOVE Christine Feehan's stories, good story lines, and STRONG heroines! BUT, this reader gave her heroine such a weak, whiny quality, I found myself glad that this was one of the shorter of her stories. Would likely not purchase another book with Ms Kruise being the reader. :-(


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Ms Kruise made the heroine appear weak and whiny. NOT Ms Feehan's heroines at all.


    Was The Awakening worth the listening time?

    Enjoyed the story, though.
