Summary

The jaws of winter are clamping down on the city of Halifax. As the light recedes, new terrors arise.

Months after the war with Borland and his vicious were-brood, Kirk and Morris are experiencing curious after-effects. They're stronger, faster, and no longer vulnerable to the sharp sting of silver. There is one concern, however. They're forever hungry, and nothing they eat provides the same nourishment as what they consumed on the island of Newfoundland. And when a mysterious stranger rides into Moses Morris's territory wishing to hunt, the were-warden knows the visitor isn't after deer.

The ultimate race begins as Kirk and Morris lead a host of wardens to put down one of their own, before the next full moon, when an entire city will be subjected to a voracious appetite.

Excellent but I want more

The first book was a pleasant surprise, but the second went by too fast. Can't wait for the next round, just hope it is longer.. Sound like my wife now.

great listen

good story reader was too monotone. found myself having to rewind as I kept drifting off thinking about other things instead of keeping up with the storyline. should've got RC to read it, but looking forward to the next book

well told but felt empty

the first book had alot more hororr and suspension. it almost felt real and with elements of true horror. this one picks up well from the first one but never felt like it got going. spent time building stories then going a different angle. felt like more of a middle episode of a TV show then a full story. however if enjoyed the first one you will this two and then get the 3rd to finish off the story as I am now

Werewolf Horror at its best

Would you listen to Breeds 2 again? Why?

A worthy sequel, and a logical follow up to continue the story of the secret world of werewolves and its hierarchy

Imaginative writing, some surprising twists and actual rounded characters all make this a great listen. But the standout element has to be the voice acting of Sean Runnette, who so perfectly captures the tone of the book. A joy to listen to - be it the with the humour of a group of drunk hunters winding each other up; or the just repressed anger of the "pack" as they needle each other.

one of the best.

A great follow up to breeds and has left me eagerly awaiting the third book in this series. A rollercoaster ride of a story that was superbly performed.

Just love Blackmore's books

Blackmore's style reminds me of Stephen King (well drawn out characters that you want to know what happens to). I have yet to listen to the third in this series but after the Mountain Man Series I am sure will be great. Sean Runnette is also a very good narrator very easy to listen to

Dying for more.

I'd listen to anything Sean Runnette narrated. But I'm glad he reads Keith's books. I'll be looking for more.

Great continuation to an awesome modern WW story.

The two protagonists are very relatable and likeable. Mad that I have to wait for the 3rd story.

You are killing me Mr Blackmore!

Once again I have a confession to start with, I have a bit of a man crush on Mr Keith C Blackmore. His 'Mountain Man' series and his first free title 'The Hospital' got me absolutely hooked on the zombie genre. Now hundreds of dollars later I am still consuming zombie titles faster than a fast zombie doing something very fast! But now he has really pushed me over the edge, he has forced me out into another genre. Lucky for me this new genre has some slim pickings, and hopefully won't cost me as much. The 'werewolf' genre! Seriously Mr Blackmore, I can just give you my bank details and you can take my cash as soon as I get paid.

The first book in this series left me hanging and I feared I would not get to see the second one. So imagine my joy when I see book 2 had been released. I was even happier when I noticed Sean Runnette was again the narrator. Sean's voice is the perfect match for every one of Mr Blackmore's created characters. It seems like a match made in heaven, except for one thing. Sean Runnette in my mind is a very slow talking narrator. I have always found myself speeding up his narrated titles. Sometimes up to 1.5x speed. However, in this case the story is that good I would have sped it up anyway because I just wanted to know more and I wanted to know now!

However, with the speed of the narration in mind and with the shortish length of this title (9hours) your dollar per hour ratio is affected. It might be important if you are on a budget. You will easily blow your cash on a title you will listen to in one sitting!

I found this one even better than the first and look forward to what happens in the future with this series. If only Mr Blackmore could figure out a way to introduce Gus from 'Mountain Man' to 'Breeds'

This fatman could not get enough of this one. I will give this one my two thumbs up a big grin and a stupid sounding 'heeeeeeeeeeeeeey' (fonzie style)... and please Mr Blackmore let there be a third in the series, and let it be fast!

Thought Werewolves were suppose to be scary?

Pretty awesome story but I thought Werewolves were suppose to be tough and scary. One minute they are unstoppable and the next are simply subdued and managed.

It would be nice to like more than a few characters

There are a couple of fairly likable though certainly not lovable characters. However they're about as complex, multifaceted and sharp as a butter knife.

Unfortunately - outside of the very few - the rest are not just stereo-typical but very unlikable and one dimensional. I found myself disgusted by a constant introduction of fairly irrelevant yet irritating ancillary characters whose only purpose seemed to be suspicious of the decent characters.

The same was true but to a much much lesser degree in the first book.

The first book at least seemed to have a story going somewhere. This book just seemed to be creating a little arc to bridge the first with the third - I can hope.

Sadly this book didn't tell me anything more about either the protagonists - and why anyone should give a crap about them - background - why one is so conflicted etc. and certainly why in the hell he should give a crap about such a Byatch except for reasons that make him even more unlivable and pathetic. Certainly not noble.

I usually enjoy this author but here - just wish he'd spent a bit of effort on developing interesting characters. Of the very few of interest and somewhat fleshed out - one just got killed off in a nano second and the other only likable one got all of a phone call.

9 hours I won't get back - fortunately this is one I could listen to while doing something else so not a total waste.

Here's to hoping the third redeems the first two - especially this second placeholder.
