Dakota Cadotte is on the run and alone. Forced out from his pack by the Alpha for being gay, Dakota fends for himself in the Denali wilderness. When he ventures too far away from his safe zone, he’s put right in the path of a truck on the highway and right into the arms of Sam Waters.
The two hit it off immediately as man and wolf, but Dakota fears Sam won’t be so understanding when he sees what he truly is. When Dakota shifts in front of Sam, the sparks fly, but Dakota’s past and pack threaten their new-found relationship.
This series is fun, crack-like goodness…and once you start it’s so very hard to stop.
Frankly, Greg Tremblay under his “Greg Boudreaux” pseudonym is just making this series a delightful listen!
What I liked: Dakota hiding being a shifter didn’t go on too long (because much longer would have been annoying as all hell), and the relationship growth between Dakota and Sam.
What I didn’t like: The Shifter lore was a little too Twilight-y (I hope that gets fleshed out a bit better as the series goes on), and the introduction of too many new characters too quickly. Though Greg does an admirable job of voicing them all, it still got way too confusing while listening.
Luckily though, I had bought the ebook and audio as part of a whispersync deal so I could switch to immersion reading during the tough to follow by listening only times.
On a side note, folks? The Whisperync deals for this series and the audio is almost too good to pass up. Definitely check it out before using an Audible credit – you can get the ebook and audio for only $5.98 total (as of 12/1/2016), which is far less than what one credit is worth.
Greg continues to narrate this series beautifully. He’s entertaining, keeps up with the pacing of the story, and does an commendable job keeping up with all the characters. There are definitely issues with the story, the writing, and the editing, but not with the narration. Greg’s narration is simply a pleasure to listen to.
Bottom Line? I was happy we finally got some shifters in this assassins/shifters series and I’m looking forward to seeing where Gasq-Dion takes the series next.
