Summary

Priceless, book one: "My name is Rylee, and I am a Tracker." When children go missing and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot. I'm on the FBI's wanted list. I have a werewolf for a pet, a Witch of a best friend, and no need for anyone else in my life. But when a salvage starts to spin out of control, help comes from a most unexpected direction. One that is dangerously dark and brooding and doesn't know a thing about the supernatural. One whose kisses set me on fire.

Immune, book two: Underestimating demons is a bad idea, and it's a mistake that may cost not only my life but the life of a missing child. If I can swallow my pride and allow Agent O'Shea to help me find a way to deal with the demon, we might be able to save the child. With this salvage, it's a race against time, a test of trust, and a temptation that I'm doing my damndest to ignore. If only swallowing my pride and ignoring temptation were that easy.

Raising Innocence, book three: The FBI wants me on their team. Bad enough that they are dangling bait they know I can't resist. The catch? It's on the other side of the ocean. And if I want what they're offering, I have to help them with a salvage gone terribly, terribly wrong. But this time I have no backup. I have no plan B. And I have no O'Shea.

Excellent

There was nothing I didn't like about this book. I loved all of the stories as they dragged me into Rylee's world, I now find myself I itching to finish this review as I want to get book 4 but I see that as of yet we only have up to book 6 on audible decisions decisions. I had never heard of Rylee until I bought this omnibus if that is you my advice would be get the omnibus you won't be sorry.

Disapointing

Sorry but the narrators voice is almost monotone and becomes very irritating quite quickly A real pity as I was enjoying the story.

Okay

I'm a little undecided about this series. The storyline is good but I found myself getting a little bored at times. I also found Rylee a little odd. I wanted to like her, but she grated on me at times. The narration was good.

If you can get past the Narration it is enjoyable

The first thing I have to tell you is the narration was terrible. Too fast, felt like everything being read was urgent, it needed to be more gentle rather than every word being high pitched and rushed. The extra accents added to book 3 helped as when the Narrator used the English accent it was far calmer. You can't listen to this before bed though as it is not soothing. The story however did keep me interested Riley is easy to like (though she swears a hell of a lot), Her romantic interest Liam is also easy engage with just like her loveable warewolf. Rylee tracks stolen children, it's her gift, mix that with supernaturals stealing them and a vampire trying to woo her and some power politics, you have a easy fantasy listen.

A great start to an excellent series

These are the first 3 books of a much longer series and each book gets better and better.

Initially I thought Emma Galvins narration spoiled this a bit as other reviewers have mentioned, but she does grow on you and in particular her voices for Alex the Labrador/Werewolf are brilliant
.
The English accents in Book 3 are cringeworthy though.

As to the story Rylee is a tracker who has an ability to find lost children and the first book is a fairly straightforwards introduction but each book gets more and more complex and Rylees life and adventures get much more interesting.

If you dont like the Narrator but like this genre at least read the books because they have a different slant and you are left guessing quite a bit as to which characters you can trust. Although the general result is predicable to some extent the plot twists and which characters are good or bad is much less predictable than in some books of this type

If you like Jane Yellowrock you will probably like these! A girl with attitude who never gives up and has bigger and bigger challenges to overcom,. though the abilities they posess are totally different

Already downloaded and listened to book 4 and its just as good and will be onto book 5 soon

Only slight complaint is the books are quite short, not an issue when one credit gets the first 3 but the following books are relatively expensive per listening hour

Good deal, fun story but regretful narration...

A good old feel good, girl power kind of book. I enjoyed discovering a new world, full of nasty Supernaturals but regrets that the narration was so terrible. Surely the line " I went to the bathroom and brush my teeth " should not be read with the same intensity as "I could feel the life rush out of me !!".

A very exciting tale

I don't really know how to review a book but I can say that this is my second time listening to the first three books on the omnibus because I have added the other instalments and wanted a fresh memory of Rylees adventures.
I recommend this series and have to say that Shannon Mayer is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.
Enjoy 😘

Voice does not match story.

the narrator sounds like a teenager. It skews the story tone. Riley is strong. The narrator is not. It isn't an unpleasant voice, it just doesn't go with THIS book.

Don't care for the narrator

If the narrator makes a difference to you, don't bother with these books. Not only can't she do a credible job of changing voices, but her ill placed pauses make the story disjointed and at times leaves you wondering what the heck was going on. Her attempts at accents are bad, especially the Irish accent. I won't be buying any more of this series.

First 3 books

Any additional comments?

Absolutely love this series. Rylee's story is captivating & on the edge of your seat thrilling! Great character development, storyline, & plot. Wish the narrotor had more voices/ranges than she does and maybe a bit more maturity to her voice (at times she sounds like a teen reading the book vs. a mature adult) but overall she did well!

Good story, narrator not so much

If you could sum up A Rylee Adamson Omnibus in three words, what would they be?

Urban Chick Fantasy

What other book might you compare A Rylee Adamson Omnibus to and why?

Its a fairly standard urban fantasy, but has an interesting take on the mythos.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator sounded like she was 12, and gave Riley a very whiny teenager voice, rather than the kick ass vibe I believe she was meant to have. it was listenable though.

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

I listened to this over the course of about 3 days.

Any additional comments?

I really think the story might have benefited from a different narrator. It might be better to actually read this if you have the time.

This narrator was the worst

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A more plausible story line would certainly have helped. The narration was also so irritating that it was hard for me to follow without being focused on that. She sounded like a young teen, so it didn't match at all. She barely changed her voice for each character, which I disliked immensely. Maybe after coming off of the Jane Yellowrock series with Khristine Hvam spoiled me, but this narrator was the pits. The FBI agent love interest after years of what would border on hate made absolutely no sense either. I don't think I will continue the series.

story was okay narrator was the worst ever

story was forced and kinda boring. the climatic scenes sucked. nothing like Anita Blake Vampire Hunter. some review said it was so I tried these. but this book isn't as good at all. the author just isn't talented enough. it was okay though. if the narrator hadn't been God awful like nails on chalkboard and horrible fake accents I would have given the book 4 stars. maybe.

Enjoyed again

Read the series a while back and saw this omnibus. Very good work on Shannon Mayer's part. Emma Galvin did a great job of reading so will have to look for more of her work. I knew that the Rylee series was a keeper now to just get more in Audibles. Thank You both.

Good series (Books 1- 3 enclosed)

Love that you get 3 books for one credit.
In Book 1) Priceless: Rylee is a young woman who is a tracker. Her powers become activate after the traumatic experience of her adopted sister being taken while they are on a playground. Since her “parents” are her adopted parents, it was easy for them to blame her. She is kicked out of the house.

We meet her 10 years later, with her new family. She has a BFF – a witch, her campion, Alex a partly transformed werewolf and her surrogate mother/trainer, who is no longer lucid. Rylee does what she does best, which is find lost kids. The antagonist is the FBI agent. For 10 years he has been trying to prove that Rylee was involved with the disappearance of her sister. Good action and paranormal characters.

In book 2) Immune: Rylee is like a dog chasing her tail. She is faced with helping a friend or saving a kid’s life. What happens is that her strings are being pulled by forces unknown. In this installment the characters are burning road between North Dakota and New Mexico in the middle of winter. Considering how much she depended on her friends, I was a tad upset that she could blow one off. Her relationships with her BFF and the FBI agent changed in Priceless. In Immune, these become huge changes. These changes are the bases of the next book.

My pet peeve, I am tired of hearing Rylee go back and forth with the guilt of her sister’s abduction. Secondly, I get frustrated with all the erroneous assumptions and whining. It is an easy fall back for authors to fill pages of the internal guilt struggle and the “love” triangle. Oh I love him. He made goo goo eyes at my BFF. I cannot tell him I love him he loves her. Oh why does he keep looking at me? That plot line drives so many of the wrong choices the characters make. We have to endure them doing stupid things to come to the realization of mutual attraction. Ugh

In book 3) Rylee discovers what her BFF has been doing and makes adjustments in who she considers family. I find her being more decisive in this book. She discovers there are other trackers. I could have told her that. In Immune a few of the vampires said, you trackers. We are on a different continent, we bring alone the same old problems and friends. Rylee matures. She deals with the death of her mentor, her BFF issues and she becomes a mentor. Oh yea, she finds (can find) her sister. The dilemma is should she interrupt her life. This ends in a cliff hanger. I am not a fan of that. Since I enjoyed the series, that is not a problem. I am down loading the next book.

Alex is the best character in the series. When Rylee has to make a choice, she makes the best one.

A grind I couldn't get into

I tried several times to get into this one but it irritated me right from the beginning. I tried to suspend belief but I couldn't.

I'm a fan of this genre but I just couldn't accept the situations. Being pursued by the FBI for years and they are so sloppy about? The FBI agent becoming a love interest - didn't work. The witch not able to work with her. The retarded werewolf. Just too many implausible situations.
