Summary

Douglas Kirk is having a bad week.

Not only are groups of human hunters after him, whole werewolf packs have orders to kill him on sight, forcing him to flee Halifax without identification, money, weapons, or even his phone.

If he wants to survive, he'll have to evade the killers on his trail, travel across the country to confront the elusive elders, and learn the truth behind the order that made him what he is.

All he has to do is control his insatiable hunger for wereflesh just a little longer.

Breeds 3 is the final book in the trilogy. Contains violence and coarse language.

Great story to end a fantastic trilogy

I have just finished the breeds 3 audiobook and i was not disappointed, often when on sequels or a book series there is often a week book or a naff ending . Not the case here , 3 books all spot on ! Keith has tied up loose ends , explained a lot of background history and generally tidied up the story's well here . Sean's narration is brilliant as always . My only criticism is that it has ended and I want more . I will no doubt be starting the 1st book again in a month or so as I haven't had my fill yet . I look forward to seeing(hearing) more from Keith c Blackmore in the future and I hope he revisits some of the characters at some point .
A book just about Moses Morris being a bad ass would do me just fine .

Great final book in the Trilogy. Great naration.

Really enjoyed the 3 books
Great descritive writing style. Gritty and Raw, but with humour too in many parts. Narration was excellent. All three books picked up the one story with lots of past references making it relevent and flow. The mystery and unanswered questions were in the end answered. A traditional werewolf and secret society story but with bits added. Highly recommend for fans of the lycanthrope genre.

please let there be more

Ok I have to confess… I have a man crush on Keith C Blackmore and Sean Runnette. Keith C Blackmore is the man responsible for my addiction to audible. His free audio book ‘The Hospital’ is the story which first got me hooked on zombie audio books. Since then I have spent all of my spare cash on audible while my TV has stood neglected and covered in dust. I found myself going for long car rides just so I have an excuse to get away and listen to another book. So of course when I discovered that Mr Blackmore had another title which was not in the zombie genre I was became a little concerned. Perhaps, it wouldn’t be as good? Perhaps I wouldn’t like it? The stakes were high. But I needed have worried myself, because I ended up concluding my review of the first in the ‘Breed’ series with the following:

"Seriously I couldn’t get enough of this one. Stuff it I am not going to sprout on about this…. just do yourself a favour and buy this one, in fact do yourself a favour and pre order the second one! Every bit as good as the Mountain Man series. Perhaps better!"

The series continued to deliver with book 2.

However, with all of those nice things being said about books 1 and 2. Book 3 took me by surprise. I won’t give any spoilers away, but just like in the ‘Mountain Man’ series this story did away with some of the previous characters… It is probably my only criticism of Mr Blackmore’s books. He gets me addicted to the characters, then takes them away from me. I went through withdrawal pain when Gus was not in one of the Mountain Man series. Book 2 had no Borland. This one has no Borland and a couple of others. Worse of all is I am not sure there is going to be a Book 4. This has a conclusion but could easily be extended. I hope it is. I would like to hear some more character development from one guy in the story (the lonely guy in the old cabin – you will know who I mean when you get to him).

While over the years other zombie books have arrived on the scene and have equalled or even bettered Mr Blackmore’s zombie books (I can’t believed I just said that). His mountain man series has stood the test of time. I suspect this one will do the same. It is by far the best werewolf type story I have heard so far. But I have only just started to scratch the surface on this genre.

As per normal with Sean Runnette’s narration the quality is brilliant but the delivery I find is on the slow side. I sped this one up to 1.5x speed and had no problem listening to it.

So, in summary what does this poor fatman think of this one? I love it! Worth every cent!

Not as strong as Book 1 but still entertaining

I felt empathy for the wolves lost and cheered for the ending. There were slow spots inbetween but Blackmore made up for it in the areas it needed it. Wildly entertaining and a heck of a ending!

Never disappoints

I've enjoyed everything I have read/listened to by Blackmore and this is yet another one to add to that list. Well written with the just the right amount of horror and humor. Sean Runnette is the cherry on top.

Imaginative, fun, and DARK

Characters are vivid and real, and the storyline is exciting as it moves toward an impending, explosive climax. The plot zips along, the writing is just excellent, and the characters are fun and compelling. Especially the two cray-crays”, husband & wife team who ran a business of selling body organs…….they were just hilarious and most creepy all at once. Keith C. Blackmore has a writing style that I just love.

Sean Runnette is superb as always and does an excellent job with the narration. His narration is perfect for this book. I highly recommend this for my paranormal folks out there especially if you are looking for something without a bunch of sappy romance. I found myself constantly yelling to no one in particular (“don’t do it”…don’t go in there…..its a trap”)…….LOL.

Very engaging story. Simply put all of the books in the series are fresh, imaginative, fun, and DARK!

Nicely wrapped up

If this is the last of the breeds books, well done. I wouldn’t have minded if there was some crazy reanimation. Ross or Moses. Even still, great storytelling. The narrator was perfect for the characters. Highly recommend. But, start with one.

FANTASTIC <br />

I was sad when this book ended. I hope there is more in the series! All 3 book were great. the author and narrator did an amazing job. the only bad thing about this book was it left me wanting more, and wondering what will come of the characters as time passes.

Best books about werewolves I’ve read.

So far my favorite books about werewolves.
Not as boring as the classic and not unreadable like the twilight series.
