    "CREATIVE NEW CHARACTERS IN FANTASY"
    Any additional comments?

    The author continues to write an engaging story line that skims more layers off the surface of the main character. In addition the new supernatural characters, which I had never heard of before has added to the entertainment of these books!

    "GREAT STORY!"
    If you could sum up Mercy Blade in three words, what would they be?

    TUFF, INDEPENDENT, SEXY.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mercy Blade?

    It put a good image to shape shifting.


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    She has created a unique, alternative universe.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    She tries hard, but the Beasts voice and Narrative sometimes slows the story down to much.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story line of the series.

    "Mercy Blade: Jane Yellowrock, Book 3"

    This series is outstanding. I have never written in to review a book although I love audiobooks (and especially Audible!) but I just had to for these books. The story, the characters, the location descriptions (almost as if you are actually in New Orleans.) And I can't say enough about Khristine Hvram's narration. She is my new favorite, so please keep her busy. I can't wait for the next Jane Yellowrock book. Way to go Faith Hunter, Khristine, and Audible!!

    "Good story.. terrible audio. Review about audio "

    Apologies to the narrator..(who did a good job) mainly the audio problems were due to production.

    The audio on this was terrible! Have loved the other previous books in this series..but this one was excruciating to listen to.. and mostly I listened in the car and not earbuds!.. In too many places, the male voice would be SO LOUD.. would have to turn the volume down..then the female character would be speaking in such a soft voice, almost a whisper, that I couldn't hear what she was saying, so up goes the volume, and skip back 30 seconds.. then the male voice would about burst my ears!!! read the book. If I hadn't gotten it on sale.. would have returned it..
    on afterthought, parts were like those commercials that have the volume at full blast..
    still like the story line and author, but production was sub par.. will be going back to paper, or kindle versions

    Story
    "Outing of weres and where is Ricky Beau"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great mystery, action thriller with the addition of romance, vampires, weres, and police drama.. I think my friends will like it.


    What other book might you compare Mercy Blade to and why?

    There are many books of urban fantasy but not all as well written. The Sooky Stackhouse books are almost in that league. (True Blood) if you are into getting your urban fantasy that way.


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is great. Very professional piece of work.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Where is Pretty Boy Ricky Beau?


    Any additional comments?

    When Ricky disappeared without a word, the weres visit New Orleans, the werewolves accuse Leo and George of murder, and the witches and vampires start working on a compromise, Jane's life gets complex.

    Story
    "Too many shifting characters!"

    Great story, but at one point I was sooo confused. Many new characters introduced (all who shift and exotic names) that it just got really lost. All does come together at the end, and things clear up. I was just annoyed at some points. But, I love this series.

    "well-paced story with action and mystery"

    Jane Yellowrock puts on both her sleuthing and warrior personas for this story. Were Leopards and werewolves are visiting New Orleans but only the cats were invited. the wolves have their own agenda and the plot gets twisted.

    Story
    "Not as enchanting as the first two in the series"

    I loved the first two books in this series, but this one just seemed to be trying too hard. I had trouble imagining Jane single-handedly fighting off a pack of werewolves, the vampire history and politics were confusing, and I wasn't sure if Rick was cheating on Jane or was being used. I really enjoyed Jane's shifting into Beast, and into other animals, in the previous books but there was little of that in this book. I will read the next in the series, but I'm hoping Ms. Hunter goes back to the roots of Jane's story.

    The narration was just as perfect as in the previous books.
