The human soldiers stranded on the planet Paradise have been recruited into an alien legion to do the dirty jobs that the high-tech species won't do. Their first mission is to kick the enemy off a backwater planet no one cares about. It's a simple assignment, except everyone has a hidden agenda, and the planet could become a deathtrap.

Would you listen to The God Decrees again? Why?

I would definitely listen again
a great story with great characters

Who was your favorite character and why?

julia with Keverin a close second - it's interesting to see her exploration of her magical powers

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Mikael Naramore is an amazing narrator and brings the world to life and breathes life into the written characters - he really is one of the best !

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by Julias angst over her roll in defending the castle and saving friends by destroying the attacking force besieging army

Any additional comments?

This is a great book well written and brilliantlying narrated and a great start to the series - I'm looking forward to the rest !

What did you like most about Wolf's Revenge?

The well written and developed characters come to greet you like old friends and you slip into the world of the LA monster scene easily

What other book might you compare Wolf's Revenge to, and why?

This book has no real comparison - the world is so Immerse and the characters leap out with marks writing and mikael ' s narration !

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

This book is like visiting old friends
