Rating/Review is regarding only the 1st 24%

Because I did not listen to this audiobook in it's entirety, I do not feel it's fair to leave a star rating. However, Amazon and Audible will not accept any comments without entering a star rating. ***PLEASE NOTE*** I did not listen to this entire audiobook therefore the star rating posted is ONLY rating the portions I did hear which were the first 24%.

I received a free Audible audiobook copy of this book from the narrator for free in exchange for my honest review. I am sad to report that at 12%, I wanted to quit listening. At this early point in the audiobook I was already very frustrated by the ridiculous storyline and was simultaneously struggling to listen to narrator Stacy Hinkle who consistently spoke with an overzealous, overly enthusiastic voice. Wanting to keep my commitment, I forced myself to continue listening yet only listened to the first 1/4 of the audiobook before finally quitting. Although I appreciated the narrator's attempt to evoke emotion, I felt it was excessive and worse, totally incongruent with the storyline much of the time. Although it was very distracting, I tried to force myself to ignore Hinkle's subpar performance yet because The Wrath Of Cain was so far-fetched and unrealistic, I finally quit. Life is short with way too many good books out there waiting to be read/listened to.

Very bad narrator, it's a good book thou

The narrator was not very good in my opinion. She struggled badly with the voices. I love the ebook of this story, but not the audible version.

Wrath of Cain Stars


I probably would have rated this higher it there was so much unnecessary drama or a lot of repetitive speak/thoughts, I found my mind wandering. Especially in the first half of the book.
Near the second half is where I really got in to the story and then was invested in the characters.

Cain was a mystery but he put his heart on the line for Calla. He tried to be all tough be alpha you women but she totally put the kibosh on that haha. I love that she never took any grief from him. She said what was on her mind and didn't give a flying f* of the consequences.

Calla, what can I say she was a little whinny for my tastes but she was a strong female character and I can respect that. She didn't show much fear at all. I can’t say that I would be able to just drive in to a MC with my head held high like she did then she got in to a cat fight and was able to hold her own… Mad respect for her for that.

The dynamic between her and Manny was a huge part of the book for me, you could see the friendship they had I am so glad his book is next because I need more Manny/ Roan.

Over all I enjoyed the book, the narrator was ok, I liked some of her voices but some were just not good. The one for Calla’s uncle yeah no… just no.. but all the other male voices weren't too bad I could tell who was speaking just by the distanced voice. I would listen to her again.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
