Hob landed there 10 years ago, a penniless orphan left behind by a rift ship. She was taken in by Nick Ravani and quickly became a member of his mercenary biker troop, the Ghost Wolves. Ten years later, she discovers that the body of Nick's brother out in the dunes. Worse, his daughter is missing, taken by shady beings called the Weathermen.

Good luck trying to finish.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It could be if the narrator did not put me off instantly, narrator comes acroos like a child pretending to mockingly put someelses voice on and its horrible.

Would you recommend Hunger Makes the Wolf to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe the non audiobook version as the premise was promising.

What didn’t you like about Penelope Rawlins’s performance?

The main characters voice was fine but when ever she attempts to do any other character is just painful to listen and completely made me lose focus on the story eliminating immersion.

Do you think Hunger Makes the Wolf needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No idea was never able to finish

Any additional comments?

Maybe bringing in another narrator or or additional support actors would have made this more palatable, as it is i could not recommend this to anyone.

Fun Listen

Alex Wells spends a good deal of time getting the reader to fall in love with the main characters. I found myself rooting for them and aching to come back to the book whenever I had to stop. The setting is sort of wild-west, while being ruled by an uncaring company agency. It made me think of how our own railroad workers may have lived...except that this is on a totally different planet. Overall, I found the book fun and leaving me wanting more.

As for the narrator, she is very talented but took some getting used to before I decided I liked her for these characters. But by the end, I was hoping the next book will be read by her.

Sci-Fan-Western

I was a good listen, not too demanding. I liked the setting, good world building. The Scifi made sense, the Magic made sense, and weird western vibe helped give it both an alien and familiar feeling.

Weird West in Space

Very enjoyable series beginning. I loved the characters. I loved the setting. I loved the world-building. My rough impression is that this is the sort of story that might happen if a world (very vaguely) like Dune were found in the Firefly universe. Highly recommended.

Absolutely, and in fact I have. I think anyone interested in Sci-Fi or Fantasy would love this book.

Any additional comments?

All in all Hunger Makes the Wolf was a fun that tells an fast paced and engaging story that leaves the reader desperately hoping for a sequel.

Funny and captivating

It has the feel of an old western, and just a hint of a 1970's distopia on a world millions of light years away. The stage is set for what promises to be an amazing saga. I can't wait for the next one!

Is Too Young-Sounding of a Voice a Thing?

I hate to give such a low rating to Ms. Rawlins, who is obviously very talented, but her voice just didn't fit this story to my ears. She sounded too young for most of the voices, and while she is very talented at doing accents, they served more of a distraction than keeping me focused on the story. It's a hardened Western in a SciFi setting, but her voice lacked the depth and age that the story wanted to tell.
