Publisher's Summary

Part lawman, part tracker and part magician, the Wardens are monster-hunters - tasked with protecting the people from the various, nightmarish creatures that have invaded the world of men. However, despite being descended from a long line of Wardens, 16-year-old Errol Magnus believes it to be the absolute worst job on the planet: How could a single occupation simultaneously be the most boring, abominably stupid, and extraordinarily dangerous profession imaginable?

But when his older brother Tom - the current Warden for their region - goes missing, Errol has no choice but to enter the Badlands, where monsters abide in mind-boggling numbers, to find him. During his search, Errol crosses paths with - and finds himself stalked by - the legendary Wendigo, a monster with preternatural strength and speed, as well as enhanced senses of sight, smell and hearing...and an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

Now Errol must do the impossible and not only escape from the monster (something no one has ever done before), but also avoid the unearthly legacy it leaves on all its victims - a terrifying curse known as Wendigo Fever.

    "Bob @ Platypire Reviews"

    *I received a copy of this audiobook for an honest review*

    This was fun to listen to. The characters were pretty well laid out and understandable, and I felt for them. The flow was good and made for an enjoyable experience. When the action really got going, after the cabin (I'll not say more, spoilers!), I found myself tensing up pausing in whatever chore I was doing at the time to listen more closely.

    I loved the different creatures that made appearances, and hope for more!

    The only thing that really pulled me out of the tale was the overuse of "moreover". It just seemed to be in there a LOT, but then again, it could have just been me! This will only bother you if you're weird like me, though, hahaha.

    I think anyone who enjoys magic and adventure would really like this.

    "A new fantasy adventure series by a great author"

    Kevin hardmans kid sensation series ranks as one of my favorites also narrated by mikael naramore. The combination of this dynamic duo deliver a one two Punch of great novel and narration. The well written stories are brought to life by a talented voice artist that will pull you even deeper into the story and the lives of the charismatic characters that were created in this ever expanding world. Welcome to a post apocalypse of magic and evil beings of fae. Mythology and magic brought to life and only a handful of wardens standing between civilization and chaos. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Cool story!"

    This is a fantasy/horror in my opinion and a short listen. The main character Errol is brother of the Warden and the man who keeps the land safe from horrible creatures. When his brother disappears and the people have problems that need assistance he rises to the occasion. He helps those in peril and also seeks his brother.

    What he finds is gruesome, more gruesome than the zombie and revanant, a wendigo. He has to find a way to destroy it even though they can't be killed. By his side is a young lady who insisted on joining him. Together they make a cute team.

    There are equal helpings of horror, gore and mystery. The characters are lively and the world building is amazing! I'm definitely checking out the next book in the series.

    "More of a short story than a book but not bad"

    Good little story.
    It is too short to get any real character development going, but not a bad start

    "Wendigo Fever"

    The world is full of creatures that can kill you & people rely on the Wardens to protect them. Tom is a warden & Errol, his younger brother, is a reluctant assistant. Errol's opinion is that being a Warden both the most boring & most dangerous job around!

    When Tom leaves on a journey, Errol expects him back in a few days. He puts off doing any Warden activities until he just can't hedge anymore. His first solo job is against a Revenant, a murdered person who is seeking revenge.

    With the assistance of his neighbor, Gail, Tom decides to try to find his brother. And, there the adventure begins. Full of creatures that only want to kill them, magic & ingenuity, Errol & Gail encounter probably the scariest creature around: A Wendigo. Incredibly hard to kill & with a hunger for humans that won't stop, will Errol be able to destroy the Wendigo? And, will they find Tom?

    An interesting story & very well narrated. I enjoyed the story, the characters and the narration. I was provided the Audible version of this book by the narrator/author/publisher & chose to review it.

    Story
    "Fun intro book to Monster Hunter series, Wardens"

    Wendigo Fever is a short novel that introduces the book series "Wardens". Wardens are monster hunters trained to deal with monsters and creatures roaming the world.
    Intro novel does not go into detail on how these creatures came to the earth, or history of Wardens but focuses on Errol the younger brother to Tom, a Warden. Errol has no interest in becoming a Warden. When his older brother Tom goes missing, Errol is thrown into assuming the duties of his brother as well as investigating his disappearance.

    This first book in the series is a short introduction to this world of Wardens and monsters. Though short I felt this book did a great job with pacing and story. The characters are likable yet flawed. The story manages to simultaneously have its own mini story arc and setting up a larger story arc for later books, which left me feeling both satisfied with the story and wanting more.

    Mikael Naramore did a wonderful job at narrating, much like he did with Sensation which I also reviewed. distinctive and consistent characters, and good inflection that matches the tone of the story. Looking through his other works I am looking forward to listening to "Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It"!

    "Great mystical story updated"

    I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator
    Kevin Hardman knows how to write a great book about magic, I loved the different creatures that made appearance. I was actually a little surprised at the ending.
    I loved Mikael Naramore's narrating of this book. He did a great job with the different male voices fell a bit flat on female voices making them sound old.
    This book was rated as a YA fiction but I feel anyone could listen to it. Use your credit towards this book.

    from my husband he also says 5 stars all around

    The basis for this story is a very interesting one. The idea of having a police force to protect you from magical being, was refreshing. The narrator brought you along in a fascinating and enthusiastic way. This allowed you to live the adventure and not just listen to it. There were several twists in the plot line that kept you guessing as to where the story was going. This made the listening that much more enjoyable. I look forward to the next book in the series.

    Any additional comments?

    Hardman and Naramore are both great in the Kid Sensation books, but I think this story and narration fell a little flat. Was pretty easy to like the main characters and I felt if the narration was just a little better this would have been a smoother book. Having said that, this is a quick listen and was enjoyable enough.

    "Great Start to a Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Wendigo Fever the most enjoyable?

    I quickly was drawn into the story of Wardens and their dangerous jobs fighting monsters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The MC, Errol Magnus, was a very believable character. Typical for a teenager, not quite sure what he wants to do with his life. And as a younger sibling, Errol had a difficult time finding his confidence in himself. I found it very applicable to real life.


    What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

    His male voices were great. Female a bit harder, making them sound older and less attractive than I would believe. Overall, great emotion in the narration. Really felt like I was a part of the story!


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

    no, nothing extreme. It was an action story, so it was thrilling, but no tears. There were funny parts, showing wit and sense of humor. There was a "Ha" here and there, but not a guffawing type of laugh ;)

    "Short"

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This is a short novel that begins the Warden series. A Warden is somebody who takes care of their local town and protects it from creatures, like the titular wendigo. Errol, the apprentice to his brother who is the town Warden, is thrust into the role that he doesn't want after his brother goes missing. Accompanied by a girl from the town, they set off to discover what happened to his brother.

    I liked the premise of this book. I love the idea of there being Wardens. And I thought that the interaction between the two main characters was pretty good. But the book itself just didn't grab me.

    "Great read"

    Found the story fairly typical to start with usual young teen trying to do his best against a better more capable brother in the family business of monster hunting.
    Did find it very interesting how the author had a take on this being a future world and how the monsters/demons had been introduced into this world and how humanity now existed.
    Once the story pace picked up a bit i soon found it to be an excellent story.
    So much so that i went looking for the kindle copy of it.
    Usual sterling performance from the narrator which i have found to be a very positive indicator of the authors work.

    I received this title free in exchange for an honest review and as such represents my own honest opinion

    Any additional comments?

    When the walls came down, all types of creatures previously thought mythical streamed through to earth. To protect the surviving population of humans, a warden system was developed, screening the surviving habitations from the monsters in the badlands. The wardens lived at the very edge of civilisation, were trained in weaponry and some magic, knew the habits of the creatures that might be encountered - and usually died young.

    Errol's father had been a warden. He died when Errol was nine, when brother Tom took over from his dad. Now Errol, at 16, had been trained to be Tom's deputy. But he doesn't want to be a warden, thinking it was "stupid, boring and dangerous." But when Tom suddenly disappears, Errol has no choice . He goes into the badlands to look for his brother. What he finds is a Wendigo.

    A simply written, easy on the ear, enjoyable adventure story filled with imaginative scary creatures, a well developed main protagonist and some unusually exciting battles. The excellent narration by Mikael Naramore helps bring it all to life, his careful, well paced reading of the text and clearly defined voices of the characters assisting in the build of tension inherent in the text. This is a story full of underlying humour and, although there is violence and gore at times, is very suitable for young people as well as being enjoyable for the older readers. An original and exciting romp through monster lands.
