Summary

In this comic, suspenseful adventure, runaway wife Luna Burke and unsuspecting getaway driver Ned Harrelson are heading from Key West to Ontario with a stolen bald eagle in the back seat. 

Licensed to care for injured and orphaned wildlife, Luna Burke is determined to smuggle the eagle out of her husband’s private zoo in Florida, reunite the bird with its mate, and get them both to an eagle sanctuary in Canada. Hot on her trail is her mogul husband, his bodyguards, the police, conservation officials, and an expert government tracker; aiding and abetting her is a smitten young tech guy, a lethal Navy SEAL turned panther advocate, and an underground railroad of wildlife rescuers intent on protecting one of their own. Waiting in Ontario is a legendary old eco-warrior more than willing to provide refuge...as long as they can make it across the border.

Fun adventure and fantastic characters

This is a winning combination for me – a cross-country car chase, a young woman finding her strength, a pissed off eagle on the back seat and a found-family of animal rehabbers helping along the way.
There were a lot of characters in this book which I think were exceptionally well handled by the narrating duo, giving them each their distinct voices so I wasn’t confused over who was speaking at any given time.

Luna has left her marriage of 6 months, her husband is a billionaire twice her age who believes himself to be in love with her. It’s the fact that he truly believes this rather than it having been a truly loveless marriage that adds some depths to the story.
Each of the main characters has their own arc, all of which I was thoroughly invested in. I love how much the author packed into this book and the directions she decided to take them all in – there was redemption for the less wonderful characters and some of the heroes made some less than heroic choices. There’s plenty of action to keep the story pushing on but it was the characters I was particularly drawn to.

As an animal lover and zoology nerd, this story held a particular appeal. Animal people are a special breed of people that I can relate to, but I’m sure that most readers would feel the same way thanks to this author’s enticing style of writing.

The narrators, Kurt Rhoads and Nance Williamson, worked really well together, the reading was seamless and they really brought the emotion of the book to the forefront – I’m glad I listened to this book rather than just read it or I would have missed out on a great experience.

Grew on me as it went along

The premise of the book was gripping and the action scenes were very well done, though short and pointed. In contract to that, the scenes in the car and at rehab stops tended to be pretty drawn out. Also, probably just personally, but i got confused with the sheer amount of different characters and found it hard to keep track of who was who and where the were, and if the main characters had even interacted with them yet. I really liked the in-depth look into the different species of rehabilitated animals.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun, Wandering

This is a broad, wandering story that I could easily imagine happening in the real world rather just in a novel.

Narrator did well, though it seemed to jump between the male and female readers at odd intervals.

I received a copy of this boot at my request in exchange for a FAIR review.

Eagles rock!

Loved all the characters, excellent, except for a certain husband. Felt has though I was riding along with Luna on this crazy and determined adventure to reunite two lovebirds.
