Summary

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father's large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age 33, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice himself is sometimes able to control. His wolf howled long and hard, but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls, and the determined pacing inside him were overtaking him. Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick "Wick" Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over 100 years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn't feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

"Natural enemies can't be mates." Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved's heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he's blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice's powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

Contains mature themes.

cringing

the story would be good if it didnt include mother nature, and a dead mother who can communicate from beyond the grave to be all mysterious and all knowing. very cringeworthy and cliche

Bad 80s porn...

This book is like the bad 80s porn books you’d find hidden in the bottom of your Mum’s sock drawer ..except with man on man action.. and werewolves and vampires. But hey, if you’re into someone being “ravished” and it being narrated by someone who would be better suited to doing a dramatic cinematic advert, then go for it. Reallllllly not for me. The story was so very uninspired and fell very flat.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me. The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review. PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!! To my ratings: 5* - very very good it's like an A+ 4* - very good and will be often re-listening it's like an A 3* - it's more then a one-time-listening. it's like a B

Loved it

I loved the e book and this production just made it that much better. The possibilities presented for this series is very promising. I can’t wait for more shifters to find their Vampire mates

Worth the wait!

I have waited an age to listen to an A.E Via book on audio and it didn’t disappoint. I love the idea of a Shifter/Vampire true mating, it brings together my two favourite PNR’s together in one storyline, and Wick and Justice are two strong leaders of their species. Wick the English King of the Vampires and Justice the American Zenith Alpha are expertly narrated by Nathaniel Black a new narrator to me. His upper class English accent was excellent. I hope that there will be more of this series and perhaps A.E. Via will consider placing her series ‘Nothing Special’ and ‘Promises’ on audiobook too

A great place for AE Via to start! MORE!!!!

I LOVED this! I am so psyched to see AE Via come to audio! I really hope she finds the ability to do more of her books in audio. This ROCKED. Nathaniel Black OWNED this! He is able to do ALL the accents as well as carry the drama in between the dialog with panache. The story itself is wonderful, too. We have two enemies, both alphas in their own worlds, who have no expectation of mating and yet find themselves not only drawn to one another but absolutely NEEDING the other. It was GLORIOUS! I love that uncontrollable passion and the feelings that come with it. Via is also gifted at giving us a good amount of action and adventure but not enough to detract from the base of the story which is our MCs falling in love. There’s a good bit of humor, lots of hot mate chemistry, and LOADS of shifting and biting! Absolute perfection, read by a true performer! I cannot rate this highly enough! 6 of 5 stars

The basic premise has great potential

I really loved the idea of this storyline and of all the characters. The problem was in depth and development. The storyline never really went much of anywhere. No tension or even really a climax for the storyline. The characters have the potential to be fabulous but they were so underdeveloped. If you like a book with not much detail or depth and lots of sex, this one is for you.

One of my favorite books by Ms. Via

I love this story. I’ve read this story multiple times in print. So when I saw it in audio, I had to have it. While the voices are not how I imagine Justice and Wick, the narrator does a decent job. I can see myself listening to this repeatedly.

Such a weak story line.

The only good thing about this audio book was its narrator. Nathaniel Black did a great job with the stories many characters, including the female ones. Unfortunately that is where my praise ends. I thought the story was just boring. I couldn't wait for it to end so I could move on to something better to listen to.

Amazing story telling!

The audio version brought the characters to life brilliantly! I enjoyed listening to both the narrator and the story.

I can't wait for book 2!!

Holy adventure, Batman! Super Alpha wolf and King vampire...what could be better?? The love, adventure and intrigue was amazing! I didn't want to stop listening! Mr. Black, you were freakin' awesome! Your voice, inflection and accents were spot on and left me wanting to search out what else you have done to listen to that, as well. I'm am waiting patiently, or not so patiently for book 2!

OMG, absolutely AWESOME !!!

I have read some of AE Via's books and loved them, but this audio book, even better. If you like shifter books, or vampire books, or M/M books then I recommend this book for you. It is not the same old story told a little different, it kept my attention through the whole book. I did not want to put it down. awesome story And awesome narration.
