Good story, poor narration.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the ebook as opposed to the audio book. I had to stop the book and go check it really wasn't a young adult book I was listening to. The narrator's voice sounded very young, I kept hearing a 15 year old girl as opposed to a 24 year old woman.
What did you like best about this story?
I'm very tempted to say the end because of the narrator but really there were no stand out scenes or characters. It's an okay book for passing a rainy Sunday afternoon when you haven't got anything else to do.
Couldn't finish it
I gave up in chapter 6. The characters were shallow and one dimensional. The relationships between Abby and Simon and Abby and Levi seemed forced and taken for granted. We are told that Levi raised Abby after the death of her parents, but, there relationship is standoffish and cold. We are told Simon likes Abby but there is no evidence of this except that he asks her out a few times. There's no flirting or anything else that shows a connection between them. Simon, an almost alpha, doesn't even care that a werewolf has been killed in his territory. Werewolves always care if someone is in their territory, dead or alive. We are told several times that Abby is the best investigator, but, never really see her do anything but asks questions. This story needs more character and plot development.

The series thus far in review part 1
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yup! Especially if they're a fan of the urban fantasy genre and are too busy to settle down with a book
Who was your favorite character and why?
Abigail Collins McSassy Pants
What does Kerri McCann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Kerri is very careful to enunciate very specifically - it was the first thing I noticed about her performances
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I feel like saying so would give spoilers... There's a kidnapping that comes out of left field when you're least expecting it.
Any additional comments?
Yeah, I'm going to need the whole series in audio book format
