Summary

Welcome to The Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. I'm Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd in charge. I run my business by one simple rule: Everyone needs a good book and a stiff drink, be they vampire, wicche, demon, or fae. No wolves, though. Ever.

I serve the supernatural community of San Francisco. We've been having some problems lately. Okay, I'm the one with the problems. The broken body of a female werewolf washed up on my doorstep. What makes sweat pool at the base of my spine, though, is realizing the scars she bears are identical to the ones I conceal. After hiding for years, I've been found.

A protection I've been relying on is gone. While my wolf traits are strengthening steadily, the loss also left my mind vulnerable to attack. Someone is ensnaring me in horrifying visions intended to kill. Clive, the sexy vampire Master of the City, has figured out how to pull me out, designating himself my personal bodyguard. He's grumpy about it, but that kiss is telling a different story. A change is taking place. It has to.

I'm a survivor. I'll fight fang and claw to protect myself and the ones I love. And let's face it - they have it coming.

Contains mature themes.

Great

I bought this trying to cure another book hangover and was pleasantly surprised. Very good plot and believable romance. The main character is not one of those wimpy girlygirls unable to think for themselves. The only negative thing is that I will most likely have another book hangover after this series is done!

Good Book, Subpar Narration

The book is really good, engaging, creative. The narration is... not. Can't help but wish this was read by someone who bring a bit more energy. The English accent is predictably awful, but even if you're used to that sort of thing (seems to be an audible trope) sometimes she mangles the vowels beyond all recognition. I did have a slight niggle that the protagonist got rescued quite a bit, but this is part of her arc and builds to something much more satisfying. I feel there should, however, be a trigger warning - this book deals with sexual, psychological and physical abuse and it's a strong theme of the whole story. So be aware if this may be an issue for you.

BRILLIANT!!!

This was a quick impulse buy for me and wow what a find!! It is definitely a re-listen for me - narrator was outstanding and the story very very good. Heroine was tough but feminine enough. If you love vampire werewolves demons dragons and witches this has it all!! You won’t be disappointed!!

loved every minute

first time I have purchased anything from the author and I have to say I loved listening to every minute of it.
I loved the fact there are vampires , werewolves, demons and witches.
the narrator did a great job too.

No plot, just one bad thing after another

This story is entirely swappable with so many others -- we're introduced to the MC, who is a likeable person/being who has been emotionally damaged and has little self-worth because of it -- so, we're hooked rooting for the underdog MC --- then it's one bad thing after another happening to the MC -- no plot, no overarching anything we're hopefully heading toward, nothing but bad things happening, narrow escapes, more bad things happening, more narrow escapes. Adrenaline, adrenaline, adrenaline. I quit the book after 90 minutes of murderous attacks and narrow escapes, when the author was starting to hint at romance ... a typical way to try to spice up an angst/action book that has no real plot. Having listened to quality urban paranormal with and without romance, but always with an actual plot, this book just doesn't live up to that standard.

Humm, it's ok, okay

I struggled with it a bit. lot of eye rolling. Some wondering attention issues. I like the premise of the story. Sam is not the heroine I would like to see in the story, in the beginning, Sam was pretty weak, pretty clueless. Sam did toughen up towards the end of the book then I started to question the insta love between Sam and Clive. I asked myself why I was still listening but then it is Monday Nite football or the book, so...there's that. To be totally transparent, I did finish it and I bought book 2 sooo..don't listen to me. lol

Can recommend this

I purchased this book because it was on sale below the price of one credit. I purchased it before reading the reviews and then when I did read the reviews I was a little worried. But I enjoyed the book. I haven’t read a lot of urban fantasy in a while so perhaps someone might feel that this book is for the urban fantasy novice. But I felt there was enough mystery, enough bad guys, romance, and enough characters to be entertaining. It might not have been a real page turner but it did keep me engaged. The only reason why I gave the story three stars was because there were periods when the trauma scenes were a little long.

Difficult to follow

Disjointed, hard to follow (I tried adjusting speed and that was not successful).

The story line is good and has very good bones.

Pleasantly surprised

This book was recommended to me as I was looking for a respectful relationship between male and female main characters. I enjoy it very much, definitely wasn’t what I was expecting.

Performance deserves 10 stars!

Samantha Desz brought the heroine to life. Her voice reflected all of the facets of Sam Quinn---snarky, sardonic, and vulnerable. Just brilliant.

The story was good, too, though the heroine kept making poor choices that put her in danger. I especially loved the creative world building; I really want to go to the Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore & Bar. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. More audiobooks, please!!

Great action thriller

I enjoyed the book and the narration made it more intense! I’ll definitely will look for other books by the author.
